For those who have played both, what is your vote the better ball..as far as..lower driver/iron spin and higher wedge spin?....i am playing the Snell, but saw great reviews on the TM and killer prices..

If it is NOT the X and then there is almost no difference. Minor things here and there but nothing to worry about.  I played the X last year and it was longer then the Snell all around, the X did have a tad less spin on those 20 -30 yard shots and was not as soft feeling on the putter as the Snell.

Depends on what your looking for. Both are great balls

I was referring to the non X  2016 TP, sorry didnt specify...I really like the Snell , but again heard great things about the 2016 TP, and prices are great

Played both and honestly you not going to see huge difference.  BOTH are excellent.   I think in this case the factor could be price right now.

+1 on the statement above.  Though its not a lot more spin there is some, but the SNELL holds up very very well.

Lol. The 17 dozen of so that I've picked up over the past 2 months would point to me agreeing with you.

I did this one a while back but have both the MTB and the 2014 TP included. I felt that the 2014 was very similar to the 2016 and moved straight from one version to the next. I'm still playing the 2016 and likely won't switch until next spring (when I'll repeat the above ball selection).
