The 2011 Titleist Pro V1x golf ball features a new surface pattern with fewer dimples arranged in a different way. This reduces the level of backspin on the ball at impact and this is what gives it the edge in distance over it's stable mate the Pro V1.
Compared to the previous Titleist Pro V1x we found that this version felt a little firmer from the club and it does go higher too, mainly because as it does not compress as much at impact, it runs up the face of the club and leaves on a higher trajectory.
However this does enable it to still stop quickly and the feel on and around the greens was exceptional for a firmer ball.
We found that the 2011 Titleist Pro V1x also seemed a little more stable in crosswinds so if you need more distance on the links this could be the ball for you.
The 2011 version is denoted by the 2 plain arrows either side of the Pro V1x on the side stamp.
