Hey all,

Was hoping for a little help.  I usually play Prov1X (or Prov1s), but I was looking to grab a couple dozen balls that were a little more affordable.  I've always liked the TM balls, and I'm seeing on Amazon the 3 mentioned in the subject are selling for $24-30 shipped prime which fast shipping is also important bc I have a 4 day MG next week.  So I was going to grab 2 dozen - I'm just trying to figure out which ones to grab.

$25 - TM 2016 Tour Preferred
$28 - TM 2016 Tour Preferred X
$32 - TM Project (a)

A little background on me, I'm a 6-7 index, SS is about 105 with driver.  I've never been fit for a ball or anything, but I'm looking for something that will perform something like the prov1 or prov1x.  Obviously spin and feel around the green is important, distance off the tee is great, durability is great also.  I do hit the ball a mid to high trajectory so getting the ball up isn't really an issue.

Thanks for any feedback, truly appreciated!!

Thanks for the votes guys.  I plan on ordering 2 of the 3 dozen above, so perhaps I'll just go with those 2 (TP and TPX versus the proj a) unless I hear otherwise.

I switched from the prov1x to the Tour Preferred x and haven't looked back. It's a touch softer, doesn't lack in spin and is much better in the wind.

Well if you go tour preferred get them on rock bottom for less $17/dz.

Hey! thanks for the heads up, but I'm not seeing them for $17 per dozen there, I'm seeing 2 for $55 ($27.50) each.  Is there a coupon or promo that you know of or a different site?  thanks again!!

The TPx.

The Project a is a decent ball but if you can get the TPx for less it's not even a condsideration.

THe TP is good too if you need spin (too much for me)

Sorry just went to give you a link from my order and they are all out of them. Dang , sorry for the false hope. They had the ammo boxes (3dz, new) for $59 pre discount. Now I wish I had ordered more.

'16 TP is fantastic (and so is the TPx) - as far as I can tell the '16TP is a Ksig with a better cover...great ball on sale in many places (I bought 6 doz at Rockbotton)
