I've hit both the Pro M and stadiums in Viera over the last month. I think the stadiums play well (and fair) down there. On red Wilson we had to earn HRs. |
The wind was the issue this past weekend. It was noticeable in the stadium and on white Rawlings (which faces the same direction). The wind blew out hard to RF. Guys just had to flick the ball to RC and it would blow out easily.
I also agree that the temps were noticeably cooler than I've seen in FL prior.
Now, the Pro M almost seems like too much ball depending on the wind conditions. I saw tons and tons of those being hit a long way. Again though, I'll attribute some of that to cooler temps.
