Won 5 dozen...but which one?


Recommended Posts

I recently won 5 dozen of the 2021 offerings from either Titleist or Taylormade.  Unfortunately the weather is not going to let me test any of the new balls before my order is due.  So, for those that have hit, or researched, the new ProV1 and x, and TP5 and x balls, who’s the champ of low driver/ high green side spin with a medium to high launch?

 

Me, well I’m a 100-105 driver SS guy who values carry over roll with the driver and likes a hop and stop ball off short irons and wedges.  I’m not looking to draw it back 30 feet, but I don't want the ball to hit and run if I have to play a flop shot either.

You probably already know this, but from what you have described, sounds like Pro V1 or TP5 is what you are looking for. Relatively lower compression and more spin than their "x" counterparts. Have you considered the AVX? It has a lower compression rating and low spin, so might not be be quite what you are looking for, but all the same worth considering.

Personally I play the ProV1x because I value carry yardage over roll out also. I'd prefer to know exactly how far I'm going to hit without having to factor in potential roll out. I've never had issues with not getting enough spin around the greens with the ProV1x either.

I think you've answered your own question here. The changes made to the TP5X for '21 will likely make it the most similar to what you enjoyed about the Tour BX. If I was in your position, that's the route I'd take. Congrats and enjoy the free stash.

Have u checked out the videos at txg on the 2021 balls 

I have.  I was quite surprised that full wedge shots were in the 11k range with the ProV1x but only in the 8500 range with the TP5x.  By the time they got to the drivers they were fairly close.  I’ll have to dig around to see what the Bridgestone BX was spinning.

I think the 2021 Pro V1X will be the closest in performance to the BX.
