    I play the 2017 prov1x normally but I have a couple sleeves of the tp5x. Spin feels to be about the same but I can't get over how firm the tp5x feels compared to the prov1x. To me, it feels/sounds like I've just hit a rock when I'm putting with the tp5x.



    To each their own though. Just my 2 cents.



    Q




    I find the TP5x to be a softer feel than ProV1x off all clubs including putter.


    Me, too. It feels softer than V1X, goes farther,and doesn't overspin. Interesting ball

    ive tried most of the "tour" balls and 15' ProV1x performs the best.... TP5 (non-x) is a close 2nd

    The current ProV1 is really a great ball. Great in the wind for once. If the TP5 and TP5X could spin under 100 yards for me, it would be a better ball. Low spin with a steeper descending angle is great for most shots, but not inside 100 yards for me. If TaylorMade can figure that out, it’s a better ball than the ProV1.

    Ball is just too hard and doesn’t spin enough from 100 and in



    I can tell from many of the comments on this thread that the greens I play on are a lot firmer than others .

    I was a ProV1x guy for years until this spring. I tested a lot of balls and ended up switching to the Chrome Soft. However, if not for that ball, I would be playing that TP5X for sure. It was longer than the ProV1x and did everything else around the green the same for me.

    Both the TP5 and TP5x are both great balls but I kept going back and forth and couldn't decide which I liked best. Then I decided to settle back to my Chromesoft X and I'm happy. I could play any of the 3 though.




    Which one gave you more distance off the tee, TP5, TP5X or CSX?



    How many yards apart would you say that difference was?

    There are 5 TOP Notch balls on the Tour right now, all VERY close. It's preference, for sure. I'll play any of them. Kinda ironic, but a well known caddy on Tour I know very well still claims if there were NO equipment contracts, everyone would be playing the ProV1. I see the Titleist lead shrinking, to be honest!

    I,'m a low handicap high swing speed player and I've played the Pro V1x since they are out there... but this year I switched to the TP5x, it goes longer and reacts better with woods and longer irons and it is amazing how penetrating the ball flight is on windy days. Also, it doesnt spin crazy with the wedges like the Pro V1x..

    I still think the best balls out there are the 2016 ProV1x and TM's 2016 Tour Preferred X. That being said, I think the TP5X is close, but feel like its durability compared to the 2016 version is a little lacking. Tried the TP5 (no X) and was not a fan. Haven't hit the 2017 ProV1x. Still working through the 8 dozen K-Sigs I bought the last time Costco had them available online. Fore the price I have no complaints, but the K-Sigs are a little soft compared to my regular "clicky" go-to balls (ProV1X, TP5X, Tour Preferred X).

    The TP5X is a great ball off the tee and the irons. I feel like I get extra distance off the iron shots but I lose a lot of greenside spin with it. I also cracked a few of them last summer. Until my GIRs improve, The ProV1x is still my go to ball. Best ball for all around performance.

    Another vote for TP5X.

    Played it for the better part of last year and it is better....for my swing and play.

    Are people actually saying they spin wedges more with the prov1x over the prov1? The v1 is a spin monster with short irons and wedges. I just switched a month ago to the x and it checks but does not spin back crazy amounts. I am going to test the 5x tonight

    I'm surprised at the people commenting that the TP5X feels firmer than the PV1X. The TP5X is a 90 compression ball while I believe the PV1X is 105. I went from the PV1X to the TP5X and immediately noticed the softer feel.

    Not an apples to apples comparison since there is no industry standard for measuring compression. Even if both companies were measuring overall compression, there are still many variables that could vary results. Historically TM has published core compression only.

    Sound plays a large role in how people perceive the softness of a ball. The TM ball is a little clicky compared to a prov1, but honestly, it's really not bad at all. It performs very well.

    for me the ProV1x spins a good amount more with the irons, especially the short ones.

    Ok so... I'm not sure if this thread is still active. It looks somewhat old. But I just tried the TP5x and I love it.. however - I hit a high ball as it is and this ball off the tee was going sky high... too high I couldn't figure out what was going on at first. It was so high I thought it had to be me but then I took two drives off the tee. One TP5X and one Pro V1 (not x). The Pro V1 flew normal and the TP5x went sky high again. Next hole I teed the TP much lower and it was more like my normal shots. The thing is I absolutely LOVED the TP5X for everything else. It's like a rocket off irons and driver (if teed down). I just don't know if I can trust it off the tee in term of height. Will have to work more with it and see if I can work the driver out. Love the ball though.

    I prefer the TP5X. I don't like the idea of the ball zipping back because it's so unpredictable how much it's going to spin back.



    I like to play the one hop skipper, check. The Tp5X does that for me.

    I keep going back to the TP5X ball.... it just seems to perform marginally better than the Titleist balls. It just seems straighter, and it cuts through the wind really well. Both are great golf balls thought

    absolutely .. Id go back to V1X in a second if i could get a stockpile of the grey stripe 16 ball.... that ball just flies where i looked... I have a few sleeves left and every once in a while ill play one and amazes me how well i drive and hit approaches with that ball... And its sound off putter is perfect .

    The difference between most of these golf balls is minimal now, but many still think that Titleist has the best ball. The pro v1 is a great ball, only issue is with any wind. I will take the Srixon XV or TP5 (or TP5x) over it any day. Or even the Bridgestone B330. Nobody ever comments on all the players missing the cut or playing awful that play the Pro V1. If you have enough guys playing it, you can make any excuse its great.

    I prefer the TP5X over the Prov1X due to the feel. Since the TP5X is the softer ball if feels better on mishits (especially off the driver). For my game this gives me more consistency.

    I've switched to the TP5x from V1x the last couple of rounds and I've found it's about a half a club longer for me off the irons, longer off the driver, better in the wind but doesn't spin nearly as much on the 100 yards in or pitches. Feels firmer to me but I like that from a putting point of view.



    Will be my winter ball.
