Hey Team Titleist!
It's truly the most wonderful time of year: #2019Proto season. Yesterday, I took the 2019 Prototypes (black) out for the first time and figured I would start a discussion forum to collect all of our thoughts throughout this process. For reference, I currently play AVX golf balls and I played a course that I frequent on the weekends (shoutout Triggs!).

Off the tee: It was pretty hot with a light feeling off the tee. My flight was a bit higher than I'm used to, but my distance was similar. I also felt a bit of forgiveness with my mishits - nothing was out of play.
Long irons/fairway metals: This is where my flight was definitely higher into the greens, making it easier for the ball to avoid rollout.
Short game: I ended up in a few greenside bunkers yesterday and my shots out were getting check that I absolutely loved. I tend to run off the green with my bunker game, so it was fun to see that check and stop.
Putting: Soft feel
I look forward to reading your feedback and don't forget to post your experience here and on social media with the hashtag, #2019Proto.

True that. I have never received a proto sleeve to try.

Does every member get sent samples? I haven’t received mine yet.

I was lucky enough to get a few and have to agree with everything you've said. The feel is amazing on all the clubs but thing that stood out the most was the durability. Couldn't believe how well the ball looked after a full round of golf. Hope to get more details on what they did differently this time around.
If you don't mind me asking Abby, which color ball did you play with? black or red? If you played both, could you tell the difference?

If we are not fortunate enough to get some test balls at home, hopefully there will be some at the TTI that we can test out.
