2013 Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls

2013 Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls

Equipment: Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x Add to ...

Titleist delivers even more distance, softer feel and longer lasting durability in its 2013 Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls through new core and cover technologies.

Using ZG process core technology to create an even softer compression, the new Pro V1 has a lower, more controlled flight with lower driver and long iron spin that results in a shallower angle of descent, providing golfers with even more distance. The softer compression also makes it the the softest Pro V1 yet and gives golfers an even greater sense of control with shots into and around the green. A responsive ionomeric casing layer and spherically-tiled 352 tetrahedral dimple design also contribute to the new Pro V1's high performance tee-through-green. The 352-dimple pattern has five different dimple sizes and three axes of symmetry that help produce a penetrating ball flight that holds its line in the wind.

With a four-piece multi-component design, the Pro V1x utilizes a new, very soft ZG process center within its dual core to produce a slightly different launch condition than the prior generation model, and will fly a little bit lower with a tight ball flight, yet still maintain a deep downrange peak trajectory. With a responsive ionomeric casing layer and spherically-tiled 328 tetrahedral dimple design, the new Pro V1x continues to provide a penetrating ball flight that cuts through the wind along with low long game spin and outstanding Drop-and-Stop short-game scoring performance.

Both new models feature an improved Urethane Elastomer cover formulation and a new paint system have increased the durability of the new Pro V1s, making the ball look whiter and brighter longer, from shot to shot, hole to hole and round to round. The new cover and paint system also contributes to an aerodynamically more consistent golf ball.

Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls are available in both standard and custom play numbers. Standard dozens include play numbers 1-4 (low) and 5-8 (high). Double-digit play numbers (00 and 11-99) are available for custom order through any Titleist golf shop, with a minimum order of one dozen. Dozens of the same single-digit number (1-9) are also available through custom order. Golfers interested in a custom play numbers should contact their local Titleist golf shop for pricing and availability.
