Vice Pro Plus Golf Balls: A Review

The motto behind the inception of Vice Golf balls, a German company started by two golfer friends - Ingo Duellmann and Rainer Stoeckl- was higher quality golf balls in lower prices.

Their objective was to revolutionize the golf ball industry and offer great quality and performance, making the balls much more budget friendly.

Vice Pro Plus Golf Balls

They have been pretty successful because of their two incentives: You can order Vice balls directly off their site, cutting down on the costlier route of buying through middlemen. Also, the company offers a lot of discount when you buy in bulk. For example where one dozen costs $34.94, buying 5 dozen costs about $29.

The value for money is what makes Vice Golf balls a popular choice among amateurs and professionals.

Besides focusing  mainly on golf balls, the company also sell a range of golf gears like caps, golf gloves, etc – all of which are very popular too.

Vice is stepping up its marketing games as much as possible and the fact that Vice allows you to customize the balls you order gets them an edge: for just about $13 per dozen ball, you can get your name, picture or even personal message on them.

4 Piece Urethene Covered Golf Ball

Vice Pro plus balls boast a 4 piece model.  The cover is Urethene, which provide softness and feel around the greens. The exteriors also have a 336 dimpled designed, which help the aerodynamics of ball landing, making the ball fly through air.

Urethene is very prone to yellowing due to exposure in direct sunlight buy Vice aims to tackle this problem by adding a special coating - BJ13 - which makes it stay white longer and aid its visibility on track. The fourth layer - outer covering - is added for lower launch and spin for longer drives. The ball flight is considerably lower.

Performs Like A Leader

While many customers who have purchased the product have differing conclusion about the performance of these balls, some claim that they are aimed at directly comparing to Titleist ProV1x, a premium hot selling golf ball.

Others meanwhile have nullified this claim, stating that while the ball performs great, it is not extra ordinary. Vice balls also have a higher compression rating in comparison to some leading brands but expert claims it is not always rigidly about compression figures as many other things like dimples, cover material, core, etc determine overall performance.

The Pro Plus is a firmer ball than the Pro ball, from the same company. However, the softness when upon hitting the club face is retained and there is no click sound.

For both iron and driver shots, Pro Plus balls provides a tiny bit less spin, and had a lower flight and "stop dead" experience.  For approach shots, it provides great distance and medium spin, not very high or low spins. Off the tee, the Vice pro balls respond well and feel firm.

Performance wise and based on actual comparison test data, the Vice Pro Plus perform with marginal difference to the ProV1, which is huge. The Vice Pro Plus actually cost less, so a significantly portion of golfers might make the shift while those loyal to the ProV1s might be indifferent to change.

Great Service

What probably earns Vice balls a plus point is their great value for money, their “direct to consumer” approach, their great performance and their great customization options.

Vice also has a record speedy order processing, and most users have actually received their product within 5 to 6 days of placing their orders.

Value For Money

With the price of Pro Plus balls approximately 25% less than premium choices, it will not hurt to lose golf balls anymore.

Durability

The balls during initial release may have had durability issues, suffering cuts and scuffs a lot. The restocked models are much more durable and longer lasting.

The balls also attract a lot of dirt, and the dimples are prone to getting brown and murky while on course and you may have to clean up after it a bit more unless you play in extremely pristine courses that is! Users also complain of the balls discoloring faster. 

Availability

One other issue is the availability of the balls. Since they’re are much cheaper than premium balls and perform equally well, they sell out pretty fast. More often than not, it is hard to get them in stock.

Verdict

At a hard to beat price, these balls are tour-worthy. These great performing balls have the same premium feel, with a slightly lower launch angle and spin. It may seem a bit firmer for some players but performance wise, it is extra ordinary.

Nike Mojo Golf Balls Review: Read Now Before You Buy This

Golf is quite an expensive game. It gets even more expensive when you panic and feed a few balls to the water bunkers.

Golf balls are not cheap just like the game isn’t. And, losing them is not just bad for the score but for your heart as well, isn’t it? But, the better you play, the less the chance of losing those balls.

However, if you are a beginner, you will definitely face a phase where your heart will be hurt. Because you will be losing a lot of balls to the bunkers unless you decide to roll it past the bunker.

A good golf ball can somewhat lessen the pain and the strain. Firstly, if the ball is cheaper than others, you will get less heart. Secondly, if the ball is of such a great build that it improves your game, it somewhat shares the pressure on you to do better.

The features of these Mojo balls that will surely make golf more fun for you are given below:

Not a dozen but its double:

These are balls you can use to play with kids or even teach them. Because kids tend to lose more balls and the Nike Mojo set surely makes it hurt less.

And no, the quality will not disappoint you. So, if you are a beginner and lose a lot of balls, this pack offers you enough balls to lose and at a lower cost.

Layers of two with 314 dimples:

Nike has apparently manufactured it keeping consumers’ needs in mind. These balls actually have a two-layer design that makes it perform better. Not only does it make the balls go faster but helps it to be more accurate in direction. The 314 dimples on its outer layer also give it a nice grip to keep in place.

A solid core:

If the numbers are giving you doubts about its quality, it’s time for that to stop. Because these balls have a solid polymeric core that gives it all the power you need. It acts as a head start for the distances to be covered. That is, the speed and distance are both enhanced with the help of these balls. Moreover, it suits higher swingers best but lower swingers can use it comfortably as well. This also assures that your ball will not break due to the enormous strength it gets hit with.

An Ionomer coating:

You may be thinking that the ball goes a long distance alright but what about the short games? Apparently, you do not have to worry about that either. In fact, the outer coating that gives off a soft feel suitable for rolling magnificently on the green. Moreover, the design gives you better control over the ball. So, putt carefully and wait for the ball to show its splendour off. Apart from that, this outer layers combined with the core produces a sound that satisfies a golfer’s bone when hit perfectly. Lastly, balls with surlyn coating are definitely better than the ionomer one. But, it has its own advantages like providing with the soft feel. Also, it is a great buy for the price.

The looks:

With four balls lying next to each other on the course, you won’t have much difficulty identifying yours. That is if you use mojo and others don’t. In order to make tracking your ball easier, it is white in color like most other golf balls. Because you only see it as clearly as you should among the green when it’s white. And, the unique black MOJO logo with the Nike logo placed right above it will definitely help you differentiate easily. Apart from that, there is also an arrow nearby to help you align your ball towards the hole during putts. So, this is a ball that takes care of everything that should be taken care when it comes to style.

    Kirkland Signature Golf Balls Review (Must Read Before You Buy)

    Golf balls cost money; and if it’s a premium, popular Tour level ball, surely it comes with a hefty price tag with each golf ball costing at least £4 or £5.

    Imagine the number of balls you lose: that is a loss of the money you invested, which may amount to as much as £600 a year!

    What if one magic performer, cost miraculously less while performing the same as the leading golf balls? The golfers and the people would obviously go crazy to get their hands on them. Such is the case of Costco manufactured Kirkland Signature golf balls.

    Four Pieces of Goodness

    Its cover is Urethane, soft and premium, the same as that used in almost all premium balls. However, a softer outer covering makes it susceptible to cut and scuffs, which is very prominent in this case, lowering consecutive performance. The exterior is a 360 dimpled design that greatly improves the ball trajectory and spin rate. The outer core is a rubber to provide the desired feel.

    The large core of the Kirkland ball maximizes the velocity when it hits the club face while ensuring efficient energy transfer. The softness of the core ensures maximum compression. The mantle of the ball is such that it doesn’t feel hard when hit, feels soft upon impact, zips through the wedges with reduced, unnecessary driver spin.

    Not For Everyone

    These balls are, sadly, not for every golfer out there. Professional or very skilled golfers who consistently shoot well in 18 rounds, have good control, swing very well and are without 14,18 or 19+ handicap will be able to make the ball fly and genuinely be able to handle it.

    The rest, disadvantaged players, might just fly to get their hands on it, only to mope about it later. Don’t buy the ball if you’re a mid to high handicapper. All that technology won’t make sense to you. And just because the pros use it, doesn’t mean you must get ’em too. Just use a ball that matches your skills and ability.

    Let’s Compare With Other Golf Balls

    Don’t let the low price point fool you into thinking that the balls lag behind in performance. On the contrary, they perform just about as good as the leading, most selling golf ball, i.e. Titleist ProV1 balls, coming in close ties to its level of performance. Any review of this gorgeous newbie which is creating all the hype and ripple is incomplete without actually comparing it to the golf ball kings, Titleist ProV1.

    The two balls perform like equal and it would take a very skilled player to spot the slight performance lacking of the Kirkland. For driver shots, the Kirkland appeared in tests to have a lower spin and flying further than the ProV1. For iron shots, it almost battles as equals: with almost the same spin and flying distance.

    For wedge shots, there may be a little or negligible difference. It may be slightly less appealing and less responsive in the greens but this is hardly noticeable. Spin rates are consistent while control was pretty decent. However, it is ever so slightly less than Titleist ProV1 balls.

    Value For Money

    Costco manufactured Kirkland Signature balls are really cheap! And since they sell out fast like thunder, they are almost always unavailable, and out of stock. They have this insane offer of 2 dozen balls for just $30, which is mind-blowing for a ball which performs so well and almost a third the price of high-end premium golf balls.

    It is the value for money that helps these balls sell. There’s always a crazy stampede to get them and a lot of disappointed golfers return empty- handed, so make sure to grab them when they are actually in stock.

    Also, the 2017 version may be inherently different from its 2016 original counterparts due to some controversies it embroiled in: all the balls were out of stock literally as soon as they were available, resulting in Costco apologizing for being under stocked! These balls sell I tell you and not for the wrong reasons of course! With a ball performing so well and costing so little, it doesn’t hurt even if you lose a few balls out on the course.

    Durability

    The ball has the tendency to cut and scuff a lot, on cart paths, trees, etc. and thus lowering its performance and abilities. Durability remains its one and only flaw, making the ball last roughly one round and requiring a replacement soon after a round. Also, a Urethene cover makes golf balls more prone to yellow due to continued exposure to the sun.

    Either way, Kirkland balls last less than many high-end balls, including Titleist ProV1.

    PROS

    CONS

  • Great performance, comparable to leading golf balls
  • Great spin, distance, energy transfer and feel on the greens
  • Value for money
  • Minor performance lacking, as noticed by very skilled players
  • Less durable: cuts and scuffs more than other premium balls
  • Prone to yellowing of the Urethene due to exposure to the sun
  • Only for very skilled or low handicapped golfers.
  • Verdict

    To sum it up, the Kirkland Signature lives up to is hype and glory. the balls perform just as good, if not better than Titleist ProV1 or other most selling premium balls in the market, whether it be iron, wedge, driver or putt shots (with data to back up claims of course!). And with the balls costing so low, it is always wise to stock up on them whenever they are available (if anytime soon, by the look of it).
