I'm happy to do some testing if any are available.

I'm a 105mph driver swinger but have always favoured softer version of premium balls ie Prov over Provx, Srixon ZStar over the XV.

The tour blue feel and performance with more spin with the short irons/wedges would be mint.

I've done a quick search and found this the following info on ball compression of the majorbrands that I've used. 

 

Bridgestone b330s compression is around 100

The TM TPX is 87 and TP is 80

The lethal was 104, which is probably why it was my least favourite ball of the TM's

The Prov's are high 80 and the prov x is high 90's.

 

Going off this data I prefer golf balls in the 80's.

 

This is a pretty good chart for reference as well.

Good question: 

 

Shorter with the player that has a swing-speed lets say 105+ mph driver which is many lower

single figure players. I'm looking at touching up the mantle and core to gain more ball speed

whilst maintaining a soft / solid forgiving overall feel.

 

The Blue core with a modified Red cover for the older player / softer swinger / younger / woman

is a really interesting design,,,, for players that are more likely to be interested in my ideas.

 

So I am chasing the sub 105 MPH driver swing-speed group ,,, they are getting max distance

within the rules of design with the PTX - Blue spec ,,, but here again I am looking at feel improvements

whilst maintaining ball speed.

 

I think I also touched on this in our previous discussions. Feel and driver performance on the blue is great, but just lacks grab on the green. Work your mojo, give me a blue that's a blue until it hits the green, then it's a red. 

 

phhheewwwww, lot's of colours in that one. And happy to be part of the that trial when it happens.

So I've just become a Vision "test pilot." Better late than never and happy to be on board. Looking forward to provide my feedback for what it's worth. Much thanks to Boz. 👍

It looks like I may do a joint release with a PGA Licence holder ,,, that will come before the UVEE testing.

 

If you dont mind I will show some art ideas as the balls will mainly be for logo purposes ,,,,so much

cleaner again than the ProTour's,,,,,,

 

The guys that are interested from above and any others that are feedback capable can try some

if interested in helping out,,,, I am looking to create modified PTX Blue and PTV Green versions.

 

Thanks in advance,  ;)

Hey Boz,

 

I'm back at it again. Just retired ... for a while and playing at the Ridge (it eats golf balls). Would be interested in testing some balls. My stock of vision balls is low. Playing off high teens. Let me know how to order.

Played this ball yesterday for the first time. Windy round. It was as long as any other ball I've tried. Held its line nicely in the wind. Too early to comment about zip around the greens.
