for anyone looking for a cheaper ball I highly recomend srixon soft feel, it's long and straight, feels soft off the clubface and checks on greens, does not gave the same spin on short shots around the greens and is impacted by shots into the wind but in general is a very good cheap alternative.
Interesting that's your feedback.
I tested the Srixon Ultisoft at one stage against the Pro V1 and V1x. I found the same feeling, feedback as you describe... Soft, stopping ok, ok around greens, but, yes impacted by wind, even slightest headwind and it seemed to stall in the air...
On a number of drives, it was consistently shorter by 5 - 10m, so meant at least one, sometimes two club extra into a green, which I think also impacted stopping distance.
I was a fairly straight ball though, as over a number of test rounds, shots, it didn't seem to go as far off course left (draw, pull hook) or right (fade, push slice) for me.
