  1. “Nobody makes golf balls the way we do. Period.”

    Well, that’s a relief.

  2. Thank you Rick—your reviews are saving me precious time and unnecessary frustration. ❤️⛳️✌🏻

    1. Let’s be honest, you’ll play equally well (or poorly) with a titleist prov1, a pxg (or a range rock for that matter) 😂

    2. @M Alw to be completely transparent, I do strike the ball better when using the PV1, but I believe this is mostly because I don’t want to lose an expensive ball, so I take more time to set up and visualize my shots. It’s similar to playing a course with a lot of water, splashing about on the front nine and on the back, with one ball remaining, the set up and care factor elevates a bit so a guy doesn’t have to quit on hole 16. Good times—love the humor and concur with your thoughts concerning my actual rate of improvement given one ball or another. I am in this for fun—I only count birdies, so I rarely have to write anything down🤣😂! If I played like Rick—I’d be hitting the PV1 for the extra yards and spin👍

    3. Prov1 are the best balls but due not playing much through work I’ve started using the srixon zstar 💎 balls and seem tbh work for me as good as a prov1 👌👌

  3. This is why you are one of the most trusted product testers out there. Honest to the core. Well done, Rick.

    1. @Jan Červenka I did, and for that I’m sorry, not about telling it how it is though,watched about 4 other guys reviewing the ball, they all said it spun more than the prov1, Rick shiels who blades 2 out of 3 wedges over the green says a ball doesn’t spin, or talks about “feel ” when putting with it when he can’t buy a fucking putt with or without provs, I mean come on. You were allowed to make a YouTube account 4 weeks ago and you’re already white knighting?So because someone clicks on a video he’s not allowed to give his opinion?get over yourself kid

  4. I always appreciate how Rick gives honest feedback, regardless if he knows the PXG person personally or has incentive to give us spin.

    1. 100% I also love the story from one of the podcasts where he was invited amongst others to a pxg demo or an event where the pxg owner was present and gave his honest opinion directly! 10/10 for integrity

    2. @Mr. GoreHowl he’s stated numerous times he is not paid by manufacturers in any way. They simply send him the product hoping he will review it and that’s it. The only companies he takes money from are the clothing and shoe brands he wears.

  5. There’s nothing like a Prov1, for me the closest replacement is a Zstar. It’s going to take something special to better a Prov1.

  6. Thanks Rick. I have ordered at 12 pack out here in Arizona. I paid $39 + shipping. I was hoping for a better review. But it’s all good, I’ll likely loose all 12 within 3 rounds 😅😂

  7. Seems like a more expensive version of the Costco balls. Did pretty OK in all the other categories, and then driver was 10 yards short, exactly like the Kirkland. Like you say, if it was another $10 or so cheaper, it would be worth considering.

  8. You (and others) should do a blind test with the top 4-5 balls in the market and see which one you prefer and what you think they are. Then we can really start to see opinions and preferences sans logos

  9. Very good review, thanks!
    What I believe would be good if it was tested how the ProV1 would have spun on the greens in comparison to the PXG ball – I think performance is very dependent on the conditions during day this was filmed.
    And also, the photo of the ProV1 was of the new model and Rick tested the old one. This, however, makes sense as I am certain that PXG were comparing themselves to the old model.

  10. Sounds like a Top-Flite when you putt or hit it with an iron. Kudos to you, Rick, for an honest, objective review with no sugar coating. 👍👍

  11. Love the reviews. Only question would be if you are comparing to ProV1, why don’t you take alternating shots with some of those so we can get a real time comparison?
    Thanks for the honest reviews

  12. Hi Rick, love your reviews, but one thing I would really find useful is if you brought a couple of PROv1s out with you to hit for the chips and wedge shots, I would love to see the difference in a spin at the moment you’re talking about them.

  13. Thanks for the review Rick. I personally do not care for the sound or the feel of the Pro V1. I have tried many golf balls and so far, the Vice Pro Plus feel, sound, performance and price have won me over. My last go around of testing a new ball was the Wilson Staff…again the feel on the putting green was not the same. A friend of mine is a dye hard PXG fan, hopefully he will make the purchase for me to give this one a try and see how it does. Cheers and thx for the review.

  14. I really would have liked to see some control shot on the chips onto the green to see how the Pro V1 stopping looked in the same conditions to the PXG. Otherwise, very informative.

  15. Would be really useful to do a side by side comparison of the balls like when you were hitting the drives.
    Comparing the sound for instance of the two balls would be useful (not many can remember the sound of a prov1).
    When chipping, seeing you hit a pro v1 to demonstrate the spin would be useful as well.
    Love the content ❤

    1. Weird thing is I heard the awful sound on the putter right away. And then when Rick was driving the first time, I was like EFFF that really IS a disgusting sound for a golf ball just to realise that those horrible sounds of the drives were with a prov… but the the PXG was equally as horrendous and I realised that it was the G425

  16. Great review Rick, I’m always a little bit suspicious about new products that say they’re just as good or better than a long established brand. I’m very happy to see you testing out products and giving your feedback. I use Pro V1 and always have the best results, next closest I use sometimes is TP5. I like the TP5 but I get more distance driving the ProV1 and better spin on the greens.

  17. I was tempted to buy these when they announced but wanted Rick to first certify they are worth the hype. Glad I didn’t. Can always Trust Rick’s reviews!

  18. And as an interesting coincidence, I just went through the PXG fitting for a driver fitting. At the sale price of the drivers I put in a Velocore shaft for the same price of the other drivers with a stock shaft. But the interesting thing is, for my first fitting, the they fitted using the prov1 made for trackman and on my 2nd fitting they started using the pxg ball. My ball speed was way down (6-8mph) when using the pxg ball.
