Conclusion: In my mind, this ball delivers as advertised. The feel is really good, distance and spin are there, and the price is right for the quality of the ball. Over the years, I’ve gone back and forth playing the Pro-V1, the Callaway HX Tour, and now after a few rounds with the Nike One Platinum, it has earned the top spot in my bag.

All of this combines to achieve the ideal feel, spin and ball flight for every shot, making it a total performance ball.
