So Boz, I am assuming that the Super Yellow ProTour X you are trialling will have the similar greenside spin to the ProTour X Red?  I trialled the red 12 months ago and liked the control I got around the greens.  Absolutely love the colour of the Yellow ProTour V's because I could find them easily (red/green colourblind!) anywhere - they stand out like dogs balls! 
 
A Super Yellow ball that spins its ar$e off is my ideal ball. Currently playing FG Tour, but they only come in white now.
 
Distance isn't a huge priority for me - I get it out there pretty well.  I like a lot of control from a 100m in.


Bingo for me as well.
Apart from the getting it out there bit

I am assuming that the Super Yellow ProTour X you are trialing will have
the similar greenside spin to the ProTour X Red? 

More like the ProTour X - Blue if I make them look like PTV Super Yellow  

More like the Nike RZN - Yellow if I do the PTX RED version ,, at this stage.

Starting to look at ProSoft and ProTour ball marking revisions ,,,,

(1) ProSoft looks a bit too busy and perhaps over marked

(2) ProTour shapes are not clear enough

Here is the beginning of the new ideas I have been looking at,,,

The concept is to use colour for your choice plus you can use a black texta
to then custom mark 1 to 4 dots = what number you like or want the ball to have,,,,,

Numbers are just not helpful,,,, too many players forget what number they are
and they look old and tired,,,,

Looks like a great idea to me. Would be quiet simple to add a couple of dots to be sure it was definitely your ball.

Used a protour today and loved it until I lost it out of bounds and with 8 putts in the first 9 holes with 1 hole I did not putt it was running hot with 6 one putts of various distances.
