    I know I am late to the party.. but almost out of Nike rzn platinum practice balls. Looking to switch to the TP5 series but not sure X or Regular.



    Basic info:

    Driver SS about 108 avg

    Driver carry about 265-270

    Typically low/mid spin and mid launch



    I don’t need help with green side spin or for the ball to be too mushy. From all my research it “sounds” like I would prefer the X, but being a low spin player, would I be better with the regular?

    If you're on the RZN Platinum and want same performance, I'd go regular TP5. RZN Black is more comparable to TP5X.



    If you are a lower spin player, TP5x COULD help you for spin. I say could because it does matter a lot on your approach and compression which I don't know anything about.



    Little note: I played and still play RZN tour platinum. When I don't, I use the services of the my TP5 and the switch is quite seamless.

    Really hoping the new TP5x has a little bit more greenside bite. It was such a great ball in the long game but I had a lot of trouble with it for delicate shots around the green.

    Was just talking to my pro the other day and the TM rep had the info on the new balls. Not sure if this has been covered here but they will have their own version of a truvis. It is going to be very limited at release because of how hard it is to produce. It is supposed to look similar to a digital camo print on the ball which make the ball have better visibility. They are comparing it to truvis and showing how much better it is for eye tracking. It must be going well in their presentations because the 1st run is already sold out and additional runs won't be available for a couple of months after the original release. Our pro couldn't get any on the first go around and he wants them. He is a Ping staffer with no allegiance to TM at all and thinks they will be a big hit. Who knows.

    It will be hard to top the current line of TP5 & TP5x golf balls. Only thing close for me is the Bridgestone line in terms of feel and playability, for my game.

    I was actually lucky enough to be the winner of Taylormade’s Instagram competition to win a years supply (however many that may be).



    Wondering what model of TP5x it will be. Either way, I’m extremely lucky and happy!

    Assumption of previous years model but, I have been fooled before. TM does give the occasional hook up.

    I figure that too. As soon as they run out I’ll be onto the new model. I love the current TP5x, and after this they’ve definitely won me over.

    I know nothing about the new model but I'm pretty happy with the $10 discount on the older TP5x. I have already bought 6 dozen. That should last me for a good bit this spring/summer.

    I'm a handicap golfer in my 50's. Any opinions I have about golf equipment or professional golfers or the game in general should be taken as seriously as you would the opinions of a random guy in the fourball ahead of you who just shot 92 but is usually better than that.

    Given the talk about durability of the current TP5/TP5x as it relates to scuffs and shearing, I thought I'd post this info from the product launch event I attended in late November. The 2019 ball has a much improved paint system. It now moves with the cover at closer to the same rate during impacts, so the paint is less likely to shear off.



    TaylorMade engineers did most of their testing by firing balls at cart path materials, before building a contraption that could simulate the effect in the same way.



    I've hit the ball, but haven't had a chance to look into the claims that durability has been increased, so for now I can only go by what I was told.
