New velocity

  1. I was quite surprised by the new velocity ball. I bought myself a dozen Matt green ones.

    The ball looks great at address. It has a strange glow to it really easy to spot on the fairway and first cut.

    Off the putter face it was a little springy but you soon adjust. Awesome distance from the tee. I got great high from my approach shots. Not many drop and stop shots but they didn't run on massively when struck well.

    I like roll out with my wedges so these balls were a great fit for me.

    The purist among us will not be happy with the colour but as coloured balls go these are great.

    Besides the mad scientist Bryson spraying balls with water to see the effect of a wet ball with his Trackman, MySpy Golf apparently has information that mat finished balls don't shed water as well, and can lose distance. Since many of my rounds are "dew-sweepers" I'll be avoiding this finish.

    Choice is what distinguishes us from totalitarian regimes. I prefer optic yellow to follow, especially on cloudy days in order for me to see the ball against the sky. So I'm in the same category of liking a ball not white. The purists can keep white - just can't figure out why they would complain about choices they don't need to make.

    Glad you made a decision you like. ...Just not sure why mat green.... ;-)
  3. I've always been a fan of the previous velocity ball and thought I'd just try a different colour. Green was my favourite of the choices. Never really thought about the cover not being as good as a standard finish.
  4. I just can’t get pass having that white ball on the tee

    The matte green is much easier to see than you might think. It does have a "glow" look especially in the early evening. I imagine the same effect happens in the AM but I'm not a morning person...
  6. I’ve been playing the ProV1 since I got my T300 irons. I grabbed a box of the new Velocity in orange on a whim. Played a round today in the heat. My experience was similar to Alex. Good distance off the tee and I did notice significantly more rollout on the greens. I’m not a strong back spinner to begin with but the wedges produced more rollout than the ProV1. Softer feel and yes a little more pop off the putter face. I’m going to stick with them until I play the box out before I decide to make a permanent switch. The cost is obviously more user friendly.
