Vice Pro Soft - Overview

The Vice Pro Soft golf ball is a fantastic golf ball, best suited for mid handicap players and low to mid swing speed players that want to have a lower ball flight and consistent feel around the greens. When we tested these golf balls on the course, we found them to perform very similar to a Titleist AVX. We did not struggle to hold the greens, the distance off the tee was fantastic and when putting – the golf ball performed as well as you could expect. This golf ball (along with all Vice Golf Balls) is not for everyone, that’s for sure. If you are a player with a high swing speed or if you are playing a Pro V1x, TP5x or similar premium golf ball – you will most likely not enjoy this ball. The ball doesn’t have the same composition as those types of balls (as you can see from the chart below). However, it does have a lot of good technology that will help a good portion of players that are playing golf balls they can’t compress or control. We would recommend testing this golf ball if you think you fall into that category of players.

The Vice Pro is best compared to a Titleist AVX. These golf balls are designed for distance off the tee, spin around the green and an overall lower ball flight. These golf balls are perfect for mid handicap golfers. When we compare the AVX to the Pro Soft, we personally prefer the Pro Soft.

Vice Pro Soft - On Course Review

Putting

Somewhat harder off of the face. It was still overall soft. Comparable more to a Q-star rather than a Q-star tour. I didn’t really care for the thick line that they provide for putting assistance, however, I am sure some others would enjoy the size of it. In my opinion, when comparing the feeling the Pro Soft feels as soft as the Vice Pro.

Wedges

On the course, I found the ball flight to be slightly lower than my usual Q-star Tour. I played a Pro V1 for a few holes as well and noticed the Pro Soft to have a lower ball flight. I didn’t struggle with distance control or spin with my wedges. The sound off the face was not any different compared to the other balls. I did notice that the ball was very durable. I was able to hit a few full wedges into the green and the ball didn’t show any wear.

Irons

When hitting iron shots, I found the ball to be a little ‘clicky’ – in terms of sound. The overall feel was very similar to a Q-star tour and AVX. I had no issues getting the ball to work left or right. The ball flight was a little lower than other balls I have tested, but I think this is by design. I really enjoyed this golf ball for what it was. While I think I will personally stick with the Vice Pro, I think the Pro Soft has a place in my bag for especially windy days or early season rounds when I may want to keep the ball a little lower.

Driver

Hitting the Vice Pro Soft off the driver I noticed that the ball flight was a little lower than I would prefer. However, this is purely my preference. The flight matched up very similar to a Titleist AVX. It wasn’t difficult to move the ball off the tee, fading and drawing the ball was not a problem. I felt like this ball was rolling out a little more than the other Vice balls I tested. This may be because of the lower ball flight, but I thought it would be worth noting.

Vice Pro Soft - Conclusion

The Titleist AVX golf ball is (as advertised), a Tour-designed golf ball, with a focus on distance and soft feel. The Vice Pro Soft is a fantastic replacement from the AVX. The Pro Soft performs just as well and is a discounted price. If you are a mid handicap player and you feel that you are paying too much for your premium golf balls – check out Vice golf. You will be surprised at the performance you get for the price. The Pro Soft is no different, this ball will perform on the course and you will not be disappointed with it.
