VICE PRO SOFT

Golf Asia - - GOLFING GEARGUIDE -

YOU NEED TO KNOW:

Op­ti­mised for dis­tance off the tee. A low com­pres­sion con­struc­tion is aimed at golfers with medium club speeds look­ing for ex­tra-soft feel.

Cer­tainly not as low com­pres­sion as the Call­away and Wil­son, but our test pro reck­oned the Soft felt de­cent through­out the bag. If we’re hon­est we’re not huge fans of the matte fin­ish, it scuffed up pretty eas­ily com­pared to the other balls on test, which might be a con­cern if you’re a stick­ler for a pris­tine ball.

Ure­thane White, Lime, Red speed was just 1mph slower than the fastest on test (with a driver) and carry five yards down on the long­est, which means the Soft’s more than ca­pa­ble of per­form­ing, even at faster swing speeds it wasn’t de­signed for.

Where does the Soft fit it in? We reckon a good way of think­ing about it is as a softer ver­sion of a pre­mium Tour ball, so much like the Srixon AD333 Tour. Vice’s Pro stands out for us be­cause sim­i­lar balls are se­ri­ously more ex­pen­sive. But with the Soft there’s al­ready the renowned Srixon AD333 Tour avail­able at a sim­i­lar price, which for some will make tak­ing a punt on a Vice less at­trac­tive.
