VICE PRO SOFT
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. Ball
WE SAY: Layers: Cover material:
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.
