TP5 or ProV1?

FairwayGolfUSA.comFairwayGolfUSA.com Sponsors Posts: 1,610
It seems like our customers are buying more TaylorMade TP5 dozens than Titleist ProV1s. Is anybody else noticing the shift as well? Which ball do you prefer?

    That's a tough call. They are both great balls. Overall I believe I'm edging towards the TP5.

    TP5x..... I choose this ball over all the othe premium balls for one simple reason. I lose fewer of them. Distance, spin, feel off the putter - all are important to me... but I can't explain why I lose fewer of these and therefore shoot better scores. Before the scratch crowd judges, I am a 9 HC.

    Been playing the Chrome Soft for 10 months now and, after seeing a cut in half lopsided Chrome Soft, recently began testing other balls. Got a sleeve of ProV1x, TP5x, Chrome Soft X. None of them seemed any better than the regular Chrome Soft.



    About a month ago while in a PGATSS the TM rep was there late in the day and gave me a couple of sleeves of the TP5 so I began playing them.



    Excellent ball. Flies very well, stops with a foot on the green off a well struck iron and chips and putts very consistently.



    Not quite ready to commit but it's probably down to the TP5 and the Chrome Soft.

    The 5x is excellent. I have gamed the ProV1 a couple times and didn't dig it much. The ProV1x might be a different story, I don't like paying in that upper range for a dozen, with my game.

    I have played both the TP5/TP5X and I feel the most comfortable with the TP5. Seemed most like an improved version of the TPX from last year.

    I don't have empirical data to support my findings, but my observation was that the TP5 spun a little more than the TP5x around the greens when I did extensive testing early in the spring. The difference wasn't much, but the little touch shots were easier to control. Ultimately, one of the reasons I chose the TP5 was that I preferred the softer feel on those kind of shots and off the putter.

    Rick Shiels did a test between the 2017 ProV1x and TP5. From 100yd 56* out, the TP5 registered at 11,500rpms, and the ProV1x was at 10,000 rpms. I played a dozen TP5s and loved them. I found a 2017 Prov1 and played great with it, so I just bought a dozen of them to see how I really like them
  • StanksStanks Everything I post is confrontational Advanced Members Posts: 1,098 ✭✭
    TP5 Hands Down with no question. My only gripe about the TP5 is that the cover just seems to get scuffed too easily. I'm not hitting cart paths or rocks or anything of the sort. I am assuming my wedges are just scuffing the ball up but, after a round of 9 holes on a par 3 course, the ball should still be good and have plenty of life.

    In terms of ProV1s, I think it's well documented that I'll never buy them, ever. However, I am not opposed to gaming one if I find it or am given a sleeve from and event. I don't care for the feel and didn't think that they beat TP5 in any category minus the dexterity of the cover.
  • Hat TrickHat Trick Advanced Members Posts: 534 ✭✭
    I played the V1X until the 2017 version came out. Now I play the the TP5 exclusively. It is a great ball.
  • Justin2017Justin2017 Members Posts: 15
    I tried the TP5X. It was a great ball performance wise, but the durability just wasn't there. As others have said, they tend to scuff easily. The OCD in me just can't be havin' that.

    How is the spin in relation to the 1X on full shots and around the green? Thank you
  • dachtordachtor Advanced Members Posts: 885 ✭✭
    The TP5x is the first ball I've put into play in a really long time where I noticed an immediate improvement. Perhaps since the first Pro V1. That said, the TP5x is the best wind ball I've ever played. If playing into a "1 club" wind, I would say the TP5x is only 1/2 club. I kept airmailing greens with these when I first put them into play. I even had my lofts checked on my irons because they were going so far. However, a fitting showed I was still getting optimal spin. In super firm conditions, I might switch to a TP5 because I do feel that it spins a bit more on approach shots and around the greens.



    As a side note, I've told 3-4 other people at my club to try the TP5 or TP5x and all have made the switch.

    Agreed. I've tried both. I have to give the nod to the TP5. Even though I use a DT TruSoft, I have a BUNCH of TP5s. They are a remarkably consistent ball.

    I prefer this year's TP5 over both Titleist models. In my area Srixon and Callaway have definitely hurt V1/TP sales on price alone. Chrome Soft £30...TP £40 and V1s £43....
  • 5yddraw5yddraw Advanced Members Posts: 344
    I really think TP5 is the best ball I've played.



    I do not really like TP5x - while it is longer, I feel like it's just not good for distance control with too many iron shots carrying too far.

    Played as a single the other day and played two balls. Tested the 2017 pro v1x and TP5x side by side. I preferred the TP5x in almost all tests I put them through that day. Now I’m a Chrome Soft X user and I don’t believe I’ll switch from it, but my next test will be the CSX versus the TP5 and we’ll see how that goes and I’ll make my decision if I’ll be switching.

    Tp5 regular ball feels great to me and spins a bunch , more than the pro v1x for me . Ballflight is alittle different and goes further with irons

    Just my opinion and know that I like all 4 of these balls:



    Prov1 and TP5 are close to the same ball. Only difference I can tell is that ProV1 has more spin (especially off driver) and TP5 feels softer.



    ProV1x and TP5X close to the same. Again ProV1x spins more and TP5x feels slightly softer. The only other thing is that, for me, the TP5x has been the lowest launching ball off the driver that I've ever hit. I'm not saying it's ridiculously lower but enough that I notice. And it's as long as any ball I've ever hit.



    B330 is my ball of choice but playing a casual afternoon round I played a TP5x and shot my best score ever.

    I would have thought the tp5x would have launched higher off the driver than the tp5



    I am looking for more spin on irons for height and landing angle (very low spin swing) - tp5 seems to do that better than the tp5x



    how much longer do you think the tp5x is off the average driver is vs. the tp5?



    appreciated

    My SS is around 110. I personally didn't notice anything major as far as difference in distance for the most part. I've only hit the 2 balls in real world conditions/golf rounds so not a lot of exact numbers to compare. TP5x though has given me some of my longest. And for me, it comes off low.



    That being said I enjoyed the TP5. I thought it did everything well and is overall as good/long as any premium ball out there.

    What is the distance advantage of the 5x vs the 5 off driver/



    I have a low spin swing and the tp5 is UNREAL for me off irons

    Soft and controllable and stable off short irons and wedges

    And great to putt with



    I was playing a srixon xv until recently...long off driver, but irons low and hard

    Not as big a fan of the 5x

    How much am I giving up on driver?

    Because the rest of the tp5 is off the charts



    Thanks

    I don't believe you're giving up any major distance at all. In fact, with a lower swing speed, the TP5 having more spin may benefit and be longer for you off the driver. Both are plenty long for me.

    To me it's splitting hairs, so I'll buy whatever I've got in the bag or whatever I find a deal on. Both are great balls, but I did have it this summer where I kept getting jumpers with the TP5x and had much less control with it downwind, so I've gravitated back to the ProV1x or B330S.

    How much am I giving up on driver?

    Because the rest of the tp5 is off the charts



    Thanks

    Insight appreciated




    I don't believe you're giving up any major distance at all. In fact, with a lower swing speed, the TP5 having more spin may benefit and be longer for you off the driver. Both are plenty long for me.


    100mph driver speed



    any change in view?

    thanks

    Not asking me but I think you'd like the 5 better than the x.



    I'm in the 115 range and I will be playing the tp5 because of what it does in the short game and I found the 5x to be clicky and jumpy. It's longer by maybe 8 yards or so, but I'll give that up for the control in the short game. It's just much more predictable.

    Thanks

    i felt the same when i tested them both and agree

    irons in particular felt more control

    just wanted to see / ask if i was giving up too much distance off the tee for that

    Longtime V1X user, tried the TP5X and didn’t said any measurable gains in performance to switch. Did switch from the V1X to the V1 with the 2017 release. Our club has very soft slopping greens and the Std V1 was more manageable on the greens for me.

    I did the Prov1 testing and TP5 testing along with Callaway and Srixon and for me, the tp5 won. Flies a tad lower and just goes and goes and very workable around the greens too. Highly recommend them.

    confused frankly with all these balls

    prov1x said to fly higher,,,but prove spins more?

    is it the same with tp5 and 5x?

    isn't the one with more spin the one that flies higher?



    so tp5 and prov are the ones that spin more, right?

    off irons let's say

    so they would produce higher ball flight for me then, right?



    thanks

    appreciated

    Tried the TP5 and did not particularly like it, I found it harder feeling that the Titleist ProV1.

    ProV1 is not good in the wind compared to these two. I think the Z-Star is the best in the wind with the TP5 a close second.

    Driver performance goes to the TP5--Z-Star is right behind it, ProV1 won't match them (I think it probably spins more as it is a touch shorter and tends to curve more)

    Iron performance is pretty equal, I just like the way the TP5 flies a bit higher.

    Wedges--TP5/Z-star both consistent, I'll get the occasional ripper with the ProV1, especially into the wind.

    Greenside goes to ProV1 but they are all close.



    All very good balls. I loved this new ProV1 until I hit the other two. I still have a couple dozen ProV1's that will get played. FWIW I was an X player for years. Hate the new X (worst wind ball ever), XV felt like a rock, and I just didn't get enough control out of the TP5X.
