VIBE Awarded Golf Digest Gold Hot List Award For 2nd Straight Year
Volvik VIBE Awarded Golf Digest Gold Hot List Award For Second Straight Year
Volvik announces that Golf Digest has awarded their VIBE 3-piece Urethane golf ball with a 2017 HOT LIST Gold award, the second straight year the VIBE has been awarded with the prestigious equipment award.
The VIBE is marketed as ‘the softest feeling Urethane tour ball for every swing speed to achieve maximum distance.’
The VIBE won Golf Digest's Golf Ball HOT LIST, the fourth year in the past five that a Volvik golf ball has been named to the annual golf ball HOT LIST.
The 38 golf balls tested on the 2017 Hot List were chosen after blacking out the logos of the manufacturer.
“This ball is sneaky good for golfers with swing speeds of less than 100 miles per hour,” read the Golf Digest write-up. “It has a compression of just 65, which means it has a soft feel with less spin off tee shots. The price for this category ain't bad, either.”
In 2017, VIBE earned a Silver Medal in the $35 and over category. Golf Digest awarded the VIBE 4 (out of five) for Performance, 4 stars for Feel, 4 stars for Innovation, while receiving only 1 in the demand category.

In 2016, VIBE earned a Gold Medal in the $35 and over category. Golf Digest awarded the VIBE 4 ½ (out of five) for Performance, 4 ½ stars for Feel, 4 stars for Innovation, while receiving only 1½ in the demand category.
“For the VIBE to win two years in a row is a testament to how great this golf ball is,” said Jon Claffey, National Director of Sales and Marketing for Volvik USA. “This is not our big seller yet. It’s actually still one of the best kept secrets in golf as far as how good this ball is for better players for how much it costs. The VIBE is a tour professional ball that has been in play on the PGA TOUR, the Web.com Tour, the Champions Tour, the LPGA Tour and the Symetra Tour. The reason it can fit such a wide array of swing speeds is because it is a best-in-class, soft-feeling Urethane that will compress for any swing, while not ballooning or increasing in driver spin with a faster swing speed. In other words, it’s the perfect ball for everyone seeking the best in soft feel, distance, accuracy and optimal flight.”
The HOT LIST awards for golf balls appeared in the magazine's May issue. The Golf Digest Ball HOT LIST is a comprehensive evaluation and testing of golf balls that combines feedback from Golf Digest editors, scientists, robot testing and a panel of 20 player testers.
The VIBE is a Tour quality Urethane golf ball for every skill level and swing speed. Extremely low compression mixed with high grade Urethane makes this 3-piece ball the perfect “soft” option for tour players, advanced golfers and beginners alike.
Combining a “players” ball with a soft feel off the club face makes the VIBE the perfect combination of distance and straightness off the tee shots due to a low driver spin. The 336-dimple pattern ensures an enhanced flight time and optimal greenside spin and short game control that you would expect from a Urethane 3-piece golf ball.
