2017 better in the wind. A little longer too.

Played the TP5X yesterday for fun so here's my take (which echoes a lot that's already been said):

Overall feel wasn't significantly different than the ProV1x.

Ball flight/launch with higher lofted clubs was significantly higher. For me it was surprising at first how high this ball got off the medium to short irons. It seemed like they went higher than any other ball I've ever hit. Distances were still very close to the same as ProV1x.

I noticed that off the driver the ball flight was really low. Maybe one of the lowest I've ever hit. I was weird compared to how high it launched off the irons. Plenty of distance with one of my longest drives in a while on the 18th hole. Long irons also didn't seem to get as high, but they still had the distance.

Overall spin was fine. No problems holding a green and being within a foot or two of my divot. But a ProV1x would have been closer and rarely ends up beyond my divot which this one did.

Spin on 40 yards and in was where I saw the biggest difference. It's not horrible, compared to my normal B330, but it wasn't as good as the ProV1x. Hit a couple of wedge shots that felt sweet but then had way less check than I anticipated.

To me, it putted well. Slightly less "clicky" than the ProV1x.

Overall I liked the ball. It just won't replace the B330/ProV1xs in my bag.

Nicely reported, thanks.

Just for context...does anything check quicker on a 40 yard wedge shot than the current ProV1x?

Coming from 2014/2015 B330 I thought that ball was extremely predictable and controllable from close in range. But the ProV1x just sits down immediately every time, pretty amazing. Makes it look like I can hit spinning shots (which I normally can not).

Chrome Soft and Wilson Staff FG Tour spin a ton near the green. The Wilson Staff with its low compression checks just as well as the ProV1X, but it's the shortest urethane ball I've ever hit.

For me, 2017 V is a better comparison to 2015 X.

Again for me, 2017 X launched higher than I like and spun too much with short irons and wedges.

Also, I prefer the green side spin of 2017 V... more than 2017 X and 2015 V.

So having been a 1Vx loyalist for the last decade or so, I decided the last week to buy some TP5x and take them out for testing. My God I'm glad I did.

This is easily the best golf ball I have ever played. In the wind it is unreal, not so much into the wind, but cross wind it just doesn't move in the air and downwind it's 10 yards longer with the driver. The general consensus that it jumps off the wedges just hasn't rung true for me, consistent flight with all short irons including wedges with the same stop and control as the 1Vx. Chipping is fine, again the same as the 1Vx, I'm probably willing to concede that 30-50 yard pitches haven't quite got the same grab but that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make.

I play a links and you'll be lucky to play two rounds a year with the wind less than 10mph, 15-20 is average, 25-30 mph at least a few days a month. The way this ball reacts in the wind is massive for me. I shot a 71 Friday just gone, a 32 (-4) on the front, wedge to an inch on 5, 8 iron to 6 feet on 6, wedge to 4 foot on 7 (25 mph downwind, got it to pitch and spin back to front pin), 8 iron to a foot on 8 in a 25 mph crosswind, ball didn't move off it's line at all. Then followed that up with a 76 this morning in 25-30 mph wind.

Changing the ball I play is massive for me, the TP5x is going straight in the bag, 8 dozen on order.

I play the 2017 prov1x normally but I have a couple sleeves of the tp5x. Spin feels to be about the same but I can't get over how firm the tp5x feels compared to the prov1x. To me, it feels/sounds like I've just hit a rock when I'm putting with the tp5x.

To each their own though. Just my 2 cents.

Q

I find the TP5x to be a softer feel than ProV1x off all clubs including putter.
Me, too. It feels softer than V1X, goes farther,and doesn't overspin. Interesting ball
