Vice Golf has got every golfing ability covered with its fresh 2020 golf ball lineup, which features significant changes compared to its previous models. 

The company's 2020 ball lineup has a much stronger separation between each player profile, equipping different player types to play a fitted cast urethane ball to their needs, so let's take a closer look at each of them...

VICE PRO PLUS 2020 - NEW MODEL

Best suited for: high swing speeds and ambitious golfers
Construction: 4-piece cast urethane cover
Price: £2.09 per ball

Designed for high swing speeds and ambitious golfers, the 4-piece cast urethane cover Vice PRO PLUS 2020 model stands out to his predecessor on ball speed, driver carry- and total distance as well as in the mid-iron ball speed and distance.

 

 

Played by long hitters, ambitious amateurs with high swing speeds, young club professionals or college golfers, the Vice PRO PLUS accomplishes the style of playing modern golf with long drives and a sharp short game.

The new Vice PRO PLUS features an adapted KIL-putting line for better visual perception of alignment when addressing the ball. The extra-long and highly visible "Keep In Line" (KIL) putting line with sharp edges has been developed in collaboration with amateurs and teaching professionals to meet the highest putting and alignment needs.

The newly designed, size-increased High Energy Speed Core (HESC) with higher compression rewards high swing speeds with more ball speed and thereby more driver distance.  The thicker outer mantle features a newly developed, highly versatile ionomer material to combine the advantages of high elasticity for increased carry distance and ball speed as well as soft feel.

In order to improve the durability of the extremely thin cast urethane cover, we decided together with the manufacturer to increase the number of strokes by 25% in the durability tests after production of the balls, whereby the error value must be 0 to confirm the balls.

The changes have been conducted based on the evaluation of over 1,000,000 online fittings. Findings for the Vice PRO PLUS include a shift towards a distance-focused, athletic golfer who requires a golf ball tailored to high club head speed especially off the tee without sacrificing on spin and feel around the green.

What remains is the overall compression of the Vice PRO PLUS 2020 at 95, the 336 dimple pattern and the price of £2.09 per ball.

Available in white, neon lime and neon red.

VICE PRO 2020 - NEW MODEL

Best suited for: players seeking great distance off the tee and high spin around the green
Construction: 3-piece cast urethane cover
Price: £2.09 per ball

The new Vice PRO 2020 remains to be the ball for a range of golfers from excellent scratch players to ambitious amateurs of different handicap levels who are seeking for a perfect combination of distance off the tee and high spin around the green.

Designed for medium to high swing speeds and ambitious golfers, the 3-piece cast urethane cover Vice PRO 2020 model stands out to his predecessor on ball speed and distance off the tee.

The new Vice PRO features an adapted KIL-putting line for better visual perception of alignment when addressing the ball. The extra-long and highly visible "Keep In Line" (KIL) putting line with sharp edges has been developed in collaboration with amateurs and teaching professionals to meet the highest putting and alignment needs.

The new DuPont™ Surlyn© grade used in the mantle cover minimizes driver spin and increases ball flight stability. The layer is more easily activated thanks to decreased compression.

The changes have been conducted based on the evaluation of over 1,000,000 online fittings. Findings for the Vice PRO include a shift towards a more performance-oriented, distance-focused golfer who requires a golf ball that offers him/her both distance off the tee and soft feel and spin around the green.

In order to improve the durability of the extremely thin cast urethane cover, we decided together with the manufacturer to increase the number of strokes by 25% in the durability tests after production of the balls, whereby the error value must be 0 to confirm the balls.

What remains is the 318 dimple pattern and the price of £2.09 per ball.

Available in white, neon lime and neon red. 

VICE PRO SOFT 2020 - NEW MODEL 

Best suited for: medium and lower swing speeds
Construction: 3-piece cast urethane cover
Price: £2.09 per ball

The new 3-Piece cast urethane Vice PRO SOFT comes with several visible and invisible changes and is designed for players with medium and lower swing speeds. Many amateur golfers upgrade their game to this cast urethane ball model and report on greater feel and better performance in their game.

The new 3-piece cast urethane cover Vice PRO SOFT 2020 model is designed for golfers with medium and low swing speeds (<95mph driver swing speed) and high requirements for distance off the tee and soft feel and spin around the green.

It offers more ball speed and distance off the tee with constant, high short game spin and comes with multiple visible and invisible changes.

The new Vice PRO SOFT features an adapted KIL-putting line for better visual perception of alignment when addressing the ball. The extra-long and highly visible "Keep In Line" (KIL) putting line with sharp edges has been developed in collaboration with amateurs and teaching professionals to meet the highest putting and alignment needs.

Adapted from the Vice PRO´s dimple pattern comes the switch from the previously used 336 dimple pattern to 318 dimple pattern which results in higher ball speed and more distance.

The thicker mantle and the new DuPont™ Surlyn© grade composition used in the mantle cover minimize driver spin and increase ball flight stability. This layer is more easily activated at impact thanks to decreased compression.

In order to improve the durability of the extremely thin cast urethane cover, we decided together with the manufacturer to increase the number of strokes by 25% in the durability tests after production of the balls, whereby the error value must be 0 to confirm the balls.

From online fittings and personal feedback, we implemented learnings and switched from a matte to a glossy finish because of better dirt absorption especially in wet conditions.

Available in white, neon lime and neon red. New colours will be added to the portfolio shortly.

VICE TOUR 2020 - IMPROVED MODEL 

Best suited for: players seeking distance off the tee and feel and spin around the green
Construction: 3-piece DuPont™ Surlyn®
Price: £2.09 per ball

The improved 3-piece DuPont™ Surlyn® Vice TOUR 2020 is designed to fit the game of the majority of golfers seeking for distance off the tee, feel and spin around the green, at an outstanding price of £1.39 per ball.

When tested with a golf robot in San Diego, California, the improved model presented more ball speed and distance off the tee compared to its predecessor and features differences in the materials used for core and mantle layer.

The new “Keep in Line” (KIL) squared-off putting line has been developed in collaboration with amateurs and teaching professionals to precisely meet putting and alignment needs.

The improved Vice TOUR offers exceptional tee length and low driver spin. Golfers appreciate the soft feel at impact thanks to the low compression of the Vice TOUR, which allows aggressive approach shots to the green and opens up birdie opportunities.

The extra thin DuPont™ Surlyn® cover offers high durability and is extremely resistant to wear and tear and cuts. The deep 392 dimple design is aerodynamically aligned to ensure a consistent and stable ball flight with minimal lateral movement.

The Vice TOUR 2020 model is available in white only. 

VICE DRIVE 2020 - NEW MODEL 

Best suited for: beginners and occasional golfers 
Construction: 2-piece DuPont™ Surlyn®
Price: £2.09 per ball

The new 2-piece DuPont™ Surlyn® Vice DRIVE 2020 has been new developed and tested, aiming to set a new standard among 2-piece ball. Numerous changes to the ball result in more length from the tee as well as a softer feel and more spin compared to the previous model.

The Vice DRIVE was developed for beginners and occasional golfers with price consciousness.

The new Vice DRIVE 2020 features a 312 large dimple pattern opposed to the previously used 392 dimple pattern which has only been given up because testing showed better results on the new dimple pattern.

This pattern, new to the Vice Golf ball universe, features an increase in the diameter of dimples which reduces air resistance to a minimum and results in a more stable trajectory of the golf ball and higher ball speed.

The decreased core compression results in softer feel off the club face, yet outstanding total distance off the tee thanks to a size-maximized core.

The Vice DRIVE 2020 features an adapted KIL-putting line for better visual perception of alignment when addressing the ball. The extra-long and highly visible “Keep in Line” (KIL) putting line with squared-off edges has been developed in collaboration with amateurs and teaching professionals to precisely meet putting and alignment needs.

The Vice DRIVE 2020 model is available in white only.
