Seriously, so far as I am concerned, these are top quality Titleist balls at almost half price. If one paint bubble the size of a grain of sand in one dimple saves £20ish/box I'm in!! It's almost impossible to spot any (cosmetic only) imperfections Titleist feels might be present. Believe me, I wouldn't play them if I thought ball flight would be impacted. It's for that reason I wouldn't play the Titleist x-out balls sold elsewhere, which might not be structurally perfect.
And whilst the split of V1 and V1x balls, nor the version (which year), cannot be guaranteed, the last two dozen I bought were a 50/50 split of the latest 2011 balls!
I'm writing this review in hope of gaining reward points to put towards yet more of these fantastic Titleist balls!!”
