OK, just finished 18 holes with this ball and I hope Titleist brings this ball to market. It was fantastic. I’ll start with feel. It’s was soft but not mushy at all. I’d say it compares to the AVX but better.
Driver: Just as long as the AVX but with a higher ball flight. I would say the ball flight was right in line with the Pro v1. Definitely low spin. The ball just wants to go straight.
Fairway wood and hybrid: again just as long as the AVX but with a higher ball flight. Almost identical trajectory to the Pro v1.
Irons: distance was right in line with the AVX. Ball flight maybe a touch higher but not much. The feel off of the irons was amazing and the spin was the perfect amount for me.
Wedges: the ball really shines here. Executional feel with noticeably more spin that the AVX. I would say not as much as the Pro v1 but pretty darn close.
Putter: fantastic feel. It reminded me of the Titleist Professional from years ago.
Bottom line: Try this ball! It also had great durability as well. I will be buying more to stock up. This is my new gamer. It knocked the AVX out of the bag.
The new Titleist EXP•01 golf ball is an experimental multilayer construction utilizing a new high performance urethane cover formulation and process, according to the company. The R&D process for EXP•01 continues starting today when a one-time, limited run will be made available until supplies last. EXP•01 is being released as part of the Titleist EXP Project, a new and ongoing initiative created to provide golfers the opportunity to experience new golf ball technologies still in the experimental phase. The Titleist R&D and Golf Ball Product Management teams will be actively seeking performance feedback from golfers who play the EXP•01 during its availability. Cost is about $40 a dozen and is available on My Titleist at Titleist.com
I do not have many more details than this...hope everyone can provide feedback!
Are you getting any? I cant wait to try them out!

Starting the thread! Just bought my dozen. Can't wait to try it out.
Would love to hear more about it from the team.

I just saw the MyGolfSpy article about the EXP-01. I'm tempted because I love having a lot of short game and iron spin, but I also like the high launch of the Pro V1x which is what I currently play. Based on what I see this ball is lower launch/lower spin on the long game, but I take it that means lower launching and lower spinning irons as well. If so this may not be the best fit for me, but I'm just curious to get thoughts and opinions before I decide if I will try it or not.
Announced on My Golf Spy 1st October the Titleist EXP 01 ball will be available in US and Canada in limited numbers. Looks like the next generation cover with increased short game spin but it feels different to the urethane cover.
Will you try these?
Pity the Rest of the World doesn't get to try as most of you in NA will be dormant over the winter months (so hopefully a yellow version).
Check it out on My Golf Spy..

Was just reading about this new "experimental" Titleist ball which will be showing up in golf shops (if the shops request them) or you can purchase directly from Titleist. It's a 3 piece ball with a prototype urethane cover. I hope shops around me request the new ball so that I can try it.
