In the past year, golf ball manufacturers have gone all in on the “Soft” golf ball design. You may recognize ball names using the word “soft” now like Chrome Soft by Callaway or Titleist TruSoft to help with marketing and sales.
The New Titleist AVX golf ball is definitely a softer ball design compared to the Pro V1 and Pro V1X.
The new AVX ball utilizes breakthrough core, cover and aerodynamic technology to give it distance comparable to the Pro V1 while feeling much softer on the face.
In short, this is the softest, lowest trajectory, lowest spinning Titleist golf ball ever made. It’s a good choice if you need to take some spin off your game.
Key Features Golfers Will Love:
- Remarkable Distance and Penetrating Flight
- Very Low Spin for Long Game Shots (Drivers & Irons)
- Exceptionally Soft Feel
- Great Scoring Control on Greens

Who is the AXV Golf Ball Best Made For?
AVX is a premium performance golf ball for golfers who prioritize distance and extremely soft feel with a piercing, low ball flight. It has been engineered to be the lowest flying, lowest spinning and softest feeling high performance golf ball in the Titleist line.
It’s best for golfers who hit the ball too high and want to bring down ball flight trajectory while increasing distance from a reduction in spin.
Titleist AVX Review of the Specs
In this section, we’ll briefly cover the following design specs:
- Core Design
- Cover Design
- Layer Design
- Dimple Design
AVX Ball Core
AVX utilizes innovative, high speed, low compression core technology, resulting in a powerful engine to drive remarkable distance with exceptionally soft feel.
The proprietary GRN41 cast thermoset urethane cover delivers premium scoring control with exceptionally soft feel and long lasting durability.
The high flex casing layer enhances speed and controls spin to promote even greater distance.
The unique spherically-tiled 352 tetrahedral catenary aerodynamic design delivers optimal and consistent flight on all shots.
Our Review of the Titleist AVX Golf Ball
One of the biggest things we noticed was the spin rate of the AVX. It was considerably lower than the Pro V1 on both iron shots and driver shots.
If you’re a golfer who usually produces high spin in your golf shots, you should notice the biggest increase in distance compared to golfers who have moderate or low spin in their swing.
As a result, this lower spin should produce more distance and straighter ball flight.
On wedge shots, the spin was also lower compared to the Pro V1 but it isn’t that noticeable to amateur golfers.

As far as ball design, it’s still a 3 piece ball consisting of the core, layer, and cover, but its cast urethane cover is quite different compared to most soft golf balls in the market. Instead it’s most similar to the cover used on the Pro V1 but formulated differently.
An while they’re trying to market it as another soft golf ball, it actually spins less, not more which is counter-intuitive when you think of soft golf balls and higher spin rates.
The dimple design is also quite different. The new 352 dimples have steeper, sharper sides and a flatter centre section in order to lower the flight.
Visibility wise, you can order a pack of balls in either white or yellow color. This is the first ball to have the yellow color option, which comes in a matte finish.
Pricing – How Much Do AVX Golf Balls Cost?
Titleist has priced them similar to the Pro V1 golf balls so expect to pay $50 or more for a dozen. You can find the most recent pricing on Amazon by clicking this link here.
