TaylorMade TP5 & TP5x golf balls Getting to the “core” of the proposition
For those who want to play a no compromise golf ball; a ball that offers maximum energy transfer, with low spin where its needed on longer shots and the highest spin around the green, the TaylorMade TP5 & TP5x golf balls may look like a traditional premium golf ball, but there’s much more to them.
You’re all looking for longer tee shots and great control on approach and short shots. Some want a softer feel, while others prefer a slightly firmer feel with a higher trajectory. That’s why there needs to be smart design in the core of the golf ball.
The first three layers of this golf ball (the tri-fast core) consist of:
an incredibly soft inner core (softest in the TP5),
an outer core that is a little stiffer (stiffest in the TP5x),
and an even stiffer mantle layer).
That means for you
You’ll notice the results of this technology in feel, trajectory and spin rates on longer shots. Both balls have a soft feel (both are low compression) but the TP5x will feel a little firmer at contact. The TP5x will also have a higher ball flight. The TP5x will also have a slightly lower spin rate and will probably fly a little further for most golfers. However on mid-iron approach shots, the TP5, although a lower trajectory, will bite a little more on landing.
The dual-spin cover is a new approach to creating spin where you need it most. A soft, cast urethane cover is layered over a firmer inner cover. The firmness of the inner cover is designed so that the soft outer layer easily can be grabbed by wedges and short irons on chips, pitch shots and approach shots for more control.
The TaylorMade TP5 and TP5x golf balls are high, all-round, performance golf balls, which also include the lower compression feel golfers want. But they go even further (literally) in offering you the chance to choose a feel / trajectory / spin that fits your preference.
