THE VENERABLE PRO V1 AND PRO V1X BALLS PAIR WITH THE NEW-LOOK 913 LINE

View CoverRead All Articles

913 DRIVERS

The forged titanium faces in the 913D2 and 913D3 drivers create more ball speed, which translates into more distance, especially on mishits. The loft and lie angles on both clubs can be changed with the adjustable hosel. While the spin rates of the two clubs are similar, the 460cc 913D2 should be slightly more forgiving and play with a greater draw bias. The 445cc 913D3 should appeal to golfers who want more control.

PRO V1 AND PRO V1x

The seventh generation of the three-piece Pro V1 has a slightly lower compression and a softer core than the last version. These changes, Titleist says, will help lower the ball's spin off the tee and increase distance. With the driver and long irons, the Pro V1 comes down on a shallower angle, which should provide a few more yards of roll. The four-piece Pro V1x is also longer, but this sixth-generation ball spins more with the long irons. According to the company, a new paint treatment keeps the ball white longer, and its uniform application makes for more consistency.

913H AND 913H.d HYBRIDS

A nonadjustable weight in the sole lowers the center of gravity in the 913H and helps reduce spin. The center of gravity in the 913H.d is shifted forward to create even less spin. Both clubs have a stainless steel face, an adjustable hosel and a classic midsize head.

913F AND 913F.d FAIRWAY METALS

These stainless steel fairway metals have the same adjustable hosel system as their driver companions. A nonadjustable weight in the back of the 913F puts the center of gravity in the ideal spot to create a mid-launch ball flight. The weight is more forward in the 913F.d, resulting in less spin.
