I've been using Mizuno RB's the last couple of months ... softer sound to me than the ProV line (and a softer feel as well in my opinion.) I've not hit the v1X but I've heard it's a harder ball than the regular ball. I read about the ProV1X having a higher ball flight which doesn't fit well for me in this area...especially this time of the year.
ProV1X is a softer ball in my mind, but I also have never had luck stopping a ProV1 like they're famous for. I only hit ProV1X's simply because of the ball flight. I hit high irons anyways, so I love being able to go up and over with the extra ball flight help, which allows me to hit greens from a better trajectory that doesn't allow much movement once it hits
As I recall, the V1X has a compression of around 100 vs the ProV with about 90...depending on your swing speed, the 90 may be better for you. I'd have to look to see but I believe the RB Tour is 93 or so. I'd bet you'd like a Callaway Chrome soft.
Personally, I'd go to a golf store that advertises fittings. I KNOW they'll have the right equipment and things like speed and a person's height make a pretty big difference.
