Straight From OnCore

Using a proprietary manufacturing process to combine a metal-infused mantle layer, nano-engineered transition layer, and a thin urethane cover, OnCore Golf has produced a 4-piece golf ball built to deliver exceptional ball speeds, distance, and incredibly low side spin! Impressively, the VeroX1 delivers a diverse performance profile for golfers of various swing types. Additionally, perimeter weighted technology enables more control for golfers that frequently play in windy conditions. 

Already, the VeroX1 has been put in play by Erik Compton, Andy Pope, and other professional golfers on the PGA and Worldwide golf tours. Other notable converts of the VeroX1 and OnCore golf balls include Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen and Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott. Unlike other D2C golf ball companies, OnCore golf prioritizes performance above all and our results support those claims.

OnCore VeroX1 Golf Ball Detailed Review

VeroX1 Golf Ball Design Review

VeroX1 is a relatively firm golf ball that provides less spin with the driver and long irons for added distance. In the short irons and wedges, the VeroX1 utilized its metal-infused mantle layer to provide more stability and control for increased accuracy. Impressively, the VeroX1 produced more distance on the course, but still retained enough spin on the greens to stop the golf ball quickly. Overall, the VeroX1’s 4-piece construction and 80-84 compression rating provide a well-balanced performance profile, especially for golfers with 95 mph and above driver club head speeds.

VeroX1 Golf Ball Performance Review

Specifically, in our test, the VeroX1 delivered a high launch and low spin performance profile that allowed our testers to pick up distance in irons and with their drivers compared to both the ProV1 and ProV1x, thus, the majority of our results come from testers who benefit the most from that profile of golf ball. Importantly, for this test group, both the VeroX1 and the ProV1x golf balls outperformed the Prov1 by a significant margin during driver tests. As always, your delivery will determine which category of golf ball is best for you, but if you find yourself comfortably in the high launch/low spin category, the VeroX1 must be on your testing list. Generally, golfers with higher club head speeds will do best with golf balls, like the VeroX1 and ProV1x, that offer reduced spin. 

In driver and 6-iron testing the VeroX1 outpaced both the ProV1 and ProV1x golf balls. Notably, the driving and approach categories (SG: OTT and SG: APP) are often the most impactful area of a golfers performance which makes VeroX1’s standout performance in those two areas all the more noteworthy. Finally, in wedge testing, the VeroX1 finished second behind the ProV1x. Impressively, OnCore’s ability to deliver “tour” level performance at 20% less cost is an advantage for all amateur golfers.

In our test, and even at PGA Tour level club head speeds, the VeroX1 stands up to the gold standard Titleist ProV1 and ProV1x golf balls. Ultimately, for golfers looking for more distance, the VeroX1 is a standout performer that can go head-to-head with any ball in golf.
