    Come out with something better, Taylormade. Please.



    Say, when is the new TP5X coming out to market? I've got to try'em...




    February.

    So I play the current TP5....is there any real world difference between the two ? or we talking a yard here or there and +/- more/less spin. I am having a hard time thinking there is that much difference from the current model.



    If the new one plays firmer I think I will stick to the current model based on feel.



    Edit: I do like the TP5X when I need that extra distance now and then but its pretty firm to me. Lucky I spin the ball decently but a medium firm ball seems to feel best to me.

    I haven't been able to find an answer, which ball, 5 or 5x, has less driver spin?

    TP5x should spin a little less off the driver.

    Do a side-by-side test when the 2019 balls come out. You should see a noticeable ball speed increase off the driver and mid/long irons. They also spin a little more on wedges and around the greens. These balls were already good, but they really did get better.



    The 2019 TP5x is noticeably more firm than the 2017-18 ball, but the TP5 felt about the same to me.

    Huge fan of TP5x - the only slight improvement I think they could make is to make it slightly softer off the putter. The ideal ball would be all the characteristics of TP5x tee-to-green, but then with the feel of TP5 off of the putter. Definitely like the feel of TP5 all-around, but it's about 1/2 club to a club shorter on full shots than TP5x.

    ^Post #201 page 7. Looks like a new competitor to the Cally TruVis patterned ball. I will definitely try it out. "Ninja star" pattern like another poster said. I'll yell out a big HADOUKEN after a good shot using these balls. I think they look kinda cool. Curious if they'll make a yellow version or other colors too.

    Balboa canyons or the road beside will eat your ball up. I've lost too many there.



    New ball looks good and plays well.

    Appreciate the response! Now VERY interested. Still have two dozen of the 18' TP5 and a few sleeves of the 18' TP5X to burn through. Will have to swtich over =)

    Having had a chance to play both TP5X's now, I will be sticking with the prior generation. The new one scuffs sooooooo easily. One wedge shot with sharp grooves, and it is toast. I love the older gen one. Cheaper and MUCH more durable.

    If you've seen the video's; supposedly months have been spent researching the new 'cart-path resistant' cover.



    I guess the Engineers involved got paid for being in these meeting's regardless - not on pure results.

    No. I am not kidding. Will take a pic tomorrow (if I can remember) of my new TP5x after my first wedge shot. Oh and BTW, my Vokeys are 5 months only and the grooves are definitely NOT sharp anymore.

    No no all good brother. I'm interested to see your findings. I've seen protos IP in San Diego and can't say I've seen the same but, I'd like to see your results.

    I must have been lucky bc I've been playing the original TP5 since before it was officially released and have never scuffed one. And considering I hit down 3-5* on my iron shots, its not as if I baby them.



    Only time I have scuffed one that I can remember:

    That's crazy. It looks worse than a painted ball with an old non-conforming wedge (cover tailings in the grooves anyone?).



    I'm a huge TP5x fan, but if the ball is noticeably firmer, that wouldn't be an ideal change to me.

    Wow looks like that wedge shot might have been a few grooves on the thin side. 😂

    I've made the same gouges in just about every brand ball. Supposedly Srixon Z Star XV are tanks but I've gouged those off one shot too.
