What we say...

GBALL BANNER

BALL BANNER

YOU NEED TO KNOW: 
Powered for distance, say Titleist. A softer core and faster cover blend combine to generate extremely low spin and more distance. Expect a higher ball flight, which Titleist says means shots stop on the green. In Titleist's words the Velocity offers "playable short game feel".

WE SAY: 
The "powered for distance" tagline certainly rang true for our pro, as the Velocity was his longest carrying ball (280 yards), though it's worth noting five other balls were within five yards. The Velocity was also our pro's lowest-spinning ball with the driver, which to us says Titleist has pulled out all the stops to make it long. That said, peak height with the irons was just a yard down on the highest which would aid getting shots to stop on a green. Of all the balls tested the Velocity is closest to what golfers would consider a "traditional" distance ball; it didn't compress nearly as much as some softer, lower compression options.

VERDICT: 
No doubt the Velocity is long. For us there's a trade- off in feel for that speed and distance, but we reckon it suits a wide audience of swing speed golfers. Most at home in the hands of golfers wanting to rinse every last yard out of their game.
