Titleist NXT Tour, NXT Tour S, Velocity

NXT Tour (Buy Now)
IT’S FOR: Aspirational, serious, competitive players.
SKINNY: A hard outer core (4 percent larger) and soft inner core (16 percent smaller) leads to faster ball speeds on full swings. Shots “peak” farther downrange and land more steeply than the previous NXT Tour, for longer carry and similar roll with similar spin. Promises a more stable flight in windy conditions due to a thin, soft Surlyn-like Fusablend cover (same as before) and a new dimple pattern with five dimple sizes.

NXT Tour S$32 (Buy Now)
IT’S FOR: Competitive golfers.
SKINNY: This 2-piece ball offers softer feel (“S” for soft) on full shots than NXT Tour. (Faster swingers should get more driver distance with NXT Tour.) It has a large low-compression core (for low driver spin) plus the same Fusablend cover as the NXT Tour (high spin on scoring shots). Designed to launch and fly lower, have a shallower angle of descent, and roll more than NXT Tour. Comes in a choice of two colors—white or optic yellow.

Velocity$27 (Buy Now)
IT’S FOR: Those who want to hit it past their buddies.
SKINNY: Titleist’s longest ball (replaces NXT) “kisses” the rule governing initial ball velocity. A “fast,” lively core and cover (to generate top ball speeds) combine with a dimple pattern built for high speeds. The cover offers respectable short-game feel, too. It launches higher than the NXT Tour/NXT Tour S but has a lower, boring flight. A fun wrinkle: It comes with orange numbers in single or double digits (00, 11, 22, 33).

DT Solo, $20 (Buy Now)
IT’S FOR: Players who need a high-launching ball and prefer an “entry-level” price point.
SKINNY: Titleist’s softest DT ever has a large low-compression core and soft Surlyn cover to deliver speed, spin and soft feel. It’s designed to get up in the air for golfers who need lift. Overall flight is a lower, penetrating trajectory with more roll. Shots hit with DT SoLo should spin more, feel softer and have a shallower descent angle than Titleist Velocity. White or optic yellow.

Also available from Titleist:

Pro V1x, $48 (Buy Now)
Soft urethane cover provides maximum short-game control. Feels slightly firmer, spins less and typically flies slightly longer off the driver than Pro V1.

Pro V1, $48 (Buy Now)
Soft urethane cover provides maximum short-game control. Feels slightly softer than the Pro V1x.

"We asked [engineers] for longer distance on the NXT Tour," Bohn says, "but only do it if you can deliver similar spin control."
