REVIEW: Vice brings a fresh spin on golf balls

The package I received was the Vice Selected which gives you a sleeve of Drive, Tour, Pro and Pro Plus and is an outstanding price. Neon was separate in case you were wondering.

 

Vice Golf is a young brand based out in Germany. In its short time, it has already received awards for their golf balls.

 

So I had the opportunity to give these balls a try. One thing I’ve learned is that the best way to test a golf ball is by hitting some shots around the greens, so that’s what I did.

 

There are many great golf balls to choose from with Vice. These include Vice Drive, Vice Tour, Vice Neon and the award winning Vice Pro and Vice Pro Plus.

 

I will say neither of these golf balls disappointed. Let me little evaluation of each ball.

 

Vice DriveOne thing I found out with Drive is that it’s very strong on medium ranged chip shots. One shot I hit went in the hole and another stopped right at the edge!

 

Also learned that it’s very solid out of taller grass as well and does a good job of stopping on a dime (Well, that’s impossible but close enough!). Drive was a nice ball to use.

 

Vice TourTour was a terrific short range ball. Time after time, it was landing near the hole, one time rolling in and this was on a slope that curved hard to the right. 

 

What makes this so important is that it’s so easy to hit a short chip too hard or even too soft. You got to have the right amount of power. 

 

Tour is your best friend in these situations. Tour is also a great flop shot ball having just the right amount of spin on the landing. 

 

 

Vice NeonNeon will definitely stand out amongst the crowd and may definitely win the Vice Golf swag contest with its green color. But Neon is more than just eye candy, it’s also a great golf ball. 

 

I hit some of my best shots with Neon. It’s has terrific spin, is great on chips and pitch and is a nice ball with the putter. 

 

I made at least two putts from 25+ feet out. This while on a slope that also broke well right. 

 

Just an impressive golf ball that’ll also turn heads at the course. 

 

Vice ProOne of the award winning balls, the Vice Pro lives up to its reputation. An all-around beast of a golf ball. 

 

You name it. Great spin, great on chips, pitches and flops and is great with the flat stick. Although I didn’t make any long putts with Pro like I did with Neon, I came very close on some long putts that were sloping from left to right. 

 

I definitely know why it’s an award winner now!

 

Vice Pro PlusSimilar to the Pro, Pro Plus is also a beast. An all-around machine of a golf ball. 

 

Pretty much everything I said about Pro, is the same for Pro Plus. Both of these golf balls are two of the best I’ve used in eight years of being a golf enthusiast (Yeah I know, that’s not that long but I’m a young dude, what can I say?!).

 

With the Pro Plus, I even made a couple of medium ranged putts that I’d normally miss. The ball is also amazing out of the tall grass, much like Drive but maybe even better! 

 

Without a doubt, Pro and Pro Plus are for sure “Pro” caliber golf balls. They are no joke (Besides the jokes being told when you smoke your buddies around the greens).

 

So Vice Golf have most certainly proven that they can produce high quality golf balls. I also love the style and approach they have to the game.

 

If you get yourself a box of their golf balls, you’ll see that it’s not your grandfather’s golf ball boxes. Usually, you may just ignore the boxes but the artistic style of them is unlike any others you’ll see.

 

Visit their website and you’ll see and feel the unique style that they’re trying to bring. It’s an extremely refreshing approach to golf which as we know can be real dull at times with so many purists not willing to think outside the box.

 

They also have some “swagtastic” hats available as well including some new, fresh colors such as Wine and Mint. Among others, they also have the unique Scotland hat which has a giant X on it, representing the Scottish flag.

 

Just an awesome brand with a fresh take on golf. If you’re a swag geek like me and also love golf, you have to check these guys out.

 

You can visit ViceGolf.com for more details on their golf balls and hats. Just a great new company that I think you’ll enjoy.

 

Welcome to the next generation of golf!
