Buyers Guide 2017: TaylorMade TP5 and TP5x Balls

TaylorMade TP5 and TP5xFor the first time, both the TaylorMade TP5 and TP5x flagship balls incorporate five-layer construction to actively improve or increase driver/iron distance, control and spin without sacrificing any industry leading greenside performance. In traditional golf balls with three or four layers, golfers are forced to settle for high wedge performance at the expense of distance, or more driver/iron distance at the expense of losing control and feel around the greens. TP5 and TP5x feature varying five-layer constructions, maximizing driver and iron distance while also delivering best in class wedge performance and greenside spin. A unique progressive construction manipu-lates the size, compression, and materials of each layer, which allows the decoupling of driver and iron speed from iron and wedge spin — a formula that can be obtained only through a five-layer construction. The Tri-Fast Core consists of a very low compression inner core and a progressively stiffer outer core and mantle. The combination of these three layers work in conjunction to create lower spin and increased velocity. This gradient is what makes the Tri-Fast Core so unique, as it builds up speed in transferring energy from the club face o the ball and delivers incredible distance on full shots. The Dual-Spin cover combines an ultra-soft cast urethane cover and a rigid TP inner cover. This ideal for greenside control as the rigid inner cover forces the soft urethane cover into wedge grooves for maximum spin generation. The result is a multi-layer cover that is designed for extreme distance without sacrificing feel or control around the green. Some of the best Tour players in the world helped in the creation of TP5 and TP5x. The company wanted to deliver a ball that would be their number one choice regardless of the type of shot they were trying to hit. TP5  and TP5x are able to deliver  on this promise. Which to  choose? TP5x is slightly  firmer and launches  higher, and TP5 features a softer feel with  mid launch.
