    As usual with TM, all I care about are the golf balls. I'm hoping the TP5 is available in yellow.

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.




    Interesting. Hopefully they hold up better than last years version.

    I picked up the last gen tp5x when they went on sale for $35. They preform so well for me in all facets of the game.

    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.





    I couldn't ever figure out what the fuss was about (durability wise). I not prone to aiming at the cart paths or concrete so I must be in a minority. Improvement is improvement and I hope they didn't change the TP5X too much - feel wise.

    I also didn't have durability concerns with the TP5 or the TP5x, but clearly it's a sentiment that exists.



    The new TP5x feels firmer off irons and woods. It has gone from 90 to 97 compression and it's something you notice at impact. However, the cover formulation has also changed and is a little softer. The softer cover combined with a more rigid layer under the cover is supposed to increase spin on shots around the green and approach shots. I didn't have a chance to do any green side testing, unfortunately.

    After reading the propaganda, it looks like if I stay with the ball, it will be with the TP5 and not the X. We will see though.

    Definitely test them both. They're better than last year's balls IMO. I'll likely stick with the TP5x, as I believe that's the better all around ball for me and I can't give up the performance in the wind.

    Thank you. Now I have to either improve my game so I don’t feel bad about using my new supply that I have or just go ahead and buy them and continue to use “blemished” ones...

    I've never been so disappointed with a TM golfball as per the current TP5-X. And i've been a sole Taylormade golf-ball user since they re-launched in the premium market in 2006.



    TP Reds, LDP's etc all seemed primarily (For me) to be plenty long enough, to spin well from 40 yards in [And living right by the sea] never balloon. Some versions were a little more hardy in reference the cover shearing, some felt a little softer. Perhaps. But more than anything they flat out performed.



    The 2018 TP5-X is the complete opposite. Goes well off the long clubs. And that's it. Feels rank on less than a half-shots, very-very average around the greens. Clicky as heck off the putter. And doesn't even resist scuffing that well to boot !



    I've 'just' changed / started trying other balls. But am so ready to go back to a TM offering if they change and improve. Not just change for change sake.




    I feel like they were both too firm. Im hearing that this years tp5 are softer and spin better around the greens. I have a doz that i just got on monday but havent even pulled them out to putt with.

    Not what I wanted to hear,, the ball getting firmer. I loved where the X was at feel wise.

    Looks like the TP5 will be the ball I test against the ‘19 Pro V1. I hope the increase in compression of the new TP5 gives me the ball speed of the old TP5x while retaining most of the old TP5’s short game spin and putting feel.

    Any idea what the difference in spin between the 2 is for woods and irons? Are we talking 100rpms or something drastically more?

    So that means you had just enough hoping not to loose before snow hit...OR....you had plenty and sprayed them everywhere image/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />

    The 2019 TP5 did not change compression. It's still 85 compression, just like the 2017-18 TP5. That said, it does have the firmer HFM layer under the cover to add speed off driver/irons and help optimize spin off wedges, but they changed the core slightly. The net result is a ball that should be a little faster, but it has the same feel.



    It's the 2019 TP5x that changed compression from 90 to 97. They added HFM but did not change the compression of any parts of the core. The net result is a ball that feels a little firmer.

    I perfectly timed my supply of the current TP5x to be gone by the time the courses closed in MN. So I'm ready for the new ones!




    So that means you had just enough hoping not to loose before snow hit...OR....you had plenty and sprayed them everywhere image/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />




    Ha! image/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' /> Let's just say I don't lose too many. Most end up in the shag bag.

    Looks like the TP5 will be the ball I test against the ‘19 Pro V1. I hope the increase in compression of the new TP5 gives me the ball speed of the old TP5x while retaining most of the old TP5’s short game spin and putting feel.




    The 2019 TP5 did not change compression. It's still 85 compression, just like the 2017-18 TP5. That said, it does have the firmer HFM layer under the cover to add speed off driver/irons and help optimize spin off wedges, but they changed the core slightly. The net result is a ball that should be a little faster, but it has the same feel.



    It's the 2019 TP5x that changed compression from 90 to 97. They added HFM but did not change the compression of any parts of the core. The net result is a ball that feels a little firmer.




    The 2017 ball was 83 compression.
