Alternative to Titleist Pro V 1X

    Hi all - looking for advice on a more affordable ball than the Pro V 1X. Ideally something on special in American Golf or Mcguirks (near me), or on Amazon.

    Was a half decent golfer 4 years ago, 8h/cap, don't play much any more, hence I need quantity as much as quality before playing 2 links courses at weekend.

    I'm thinking Srixon Tour, maybe

    Look up Seed golf balls. I find them great and have a subscription now.

    Srixon Z-star are good and ive been using them recently.

    I change between TP5/ProV1/Z-star with no noticeable difference in performance for me anyway. Which ever is on offer is what i usually get.

    Srixon AD333 are a good ball also if you want something a bit cheaper. Seed SD-02 very good i find too.

    Z-Star are a very good ball alright, but probably not a massive saving relative to the ProV1X.

    Seed will definitely be a saving and good quality balls.

    Vice also do a good comparable ball, think it might be called the Pro Plus or something like that.

    Bridgestone do very good performing balls too, not sure which would fit in the slot of ProV1X though.

    Avoid the Chrome Soft X from Callaway I'd say, but other than that any of those mentioned above shocks fit the bill.

    The Seed 01 or 02 models are great value for money once you use the subscription option to purchase (immediately pause it). Delivery usually 1-2 days. I think you need to order three dozen for free shipping atm otherwise it's a fiver. Performance is as comparable to any of the other direct to consumer balls (Snell, Vice etc), which all match up in the same bracket as V1, TP5, Chromsoft etc.

    I have a seed subscription and like the ball (would still prefer the pro v 1) plus they're an Irish company so it's nice to support a local employer.

    +1 for the Srixon AD333, by far the best relatively budget ball. Used to buy them regularly and anytime I find one, they're still lovely to play.

    Do like the Bridgestone as well, and sometimes you can get a good deal on their premium balls.

    Edit: I see you're looking for the pro v1x alternative, definitely the Seed SD 02 in that case

    + one for Seed.

    Another vote for Seed, in your case Seed 02. 3 dozen work out at 87eur and free courier delivery at that spend.

    Alternatively, if one of the links courses is Enniscrone, there's about a dozen of mine out there somewhere from last Friday.

    I've tried out the Seed 01 this year. Really good ball

    Gets really good reviews on a few prominent YouTube golf channels that would have no affiliation to Seed and have no problem saying if a product is poor. So I think that's a good recommendation

    TXG in particular do serious analysis of products and put it up as good as Pro v1

    Thanks folks. Have ordered Seed 02, love the idea of buying Irish for this, seeing as they will be adorning the Irish countryside, far and wide (from the fairway).
