Buddy shot a 78 with the TP5x yesterday. On a good day, he is scratch and this is average. I checked out the ball after 18 and he use the same one the whole time. Looked a bit beat up but, great nonetheless.

Long time pro v1x player

Hate the tp5x felt alittle firm(I can live with that ) but went  along way especially off long irons , but doesn't spin much for me with any shot inside 100 yards

Tp5 regular ball feels great to me and spins a bunch , more than the pro v1x for me . Ballflight is alittle different and goes further with irons

Great all I think I will be replacing the v1x

Just my opinion and know that I like all 4 of these balls:

Prov1 and TP5 are close to the same ball. Only difference I can tell is that ProV1 has more spin (especially off driver) and TP5 feels softer.

ProV1x and TP5X close to the same. Again ProV1x spins more and TP5x feels slightly softer. The only other thing is that, for me, the TP5x has been the lowest launching ball off the driver that I've ever hit. I'm not saying it's ridiculously lower but enough that I notice. And it's as long as any ball I've ever hit.

B330 is my ball of choice but playing a casual afternoon round I played a TP5x and shot my best score ever.

I would have thought the tp5x would have launched higher off the driver than the tp5

I am looking for more spin on irons for height and landing angle  (very low spin swing) - tp5 seems to do that better than the tp5x

how much longer do you think the tp5x is off the average driver is vs. the tp5?

appreciated

My SS is around 110. I personally didn't notice anything major as far as difference in distance for the most part. I've only hit the 2 balls in real world conditions/golf rounds so not a lot of exact numbers to compare. TP5x though has given me some of my longest. And for me, it comes off low.

That being said I enjoyed the TP5. I thought it did everything well and is overall as good/long as any premium ball out there.

What is the distance advantage of the 5x vs the 5 off driver/

I have a low spin swing and the tp5 is UNREAL for me off irons
Soft and controllable and stable off short irons and wedges
And great to putt with

I was playing a srixon xv until recently...long off driver, but irons low and hard
Not as big a fan of the 5x
How much am I giving up on driver?
Because the rest of the tp5 is off the charts

Thanks
Insight appreciated

I don't believe you're giving up any major distance at all. In fact, with a lower swing speed, the TP5 having more spin may benefit and be longer for you off the driver. Both are plenty long for me.

To me it's splitting hairs, so I'll buy whatever I've got in the bag or whatever I find a deal on. Both are great balls, but I did have it this summer where I kept getting jumpers with the TP5x and had much less control with it downwind, so I've gravitated back to the ProV1x or B330S.

Not asking me but I think you'd like the 5 better than the x.

I'm in the 115 range and I will be playing the tp5 because of what it does in the short game and I found the 5x to be clicky and jumpy. It's longer by maybe 8 yards or so, but I'll give that up for the control in the short game. It's just much more predictable.

i felt the same when i tested them both and agree
irons in particular felt more control
just wanted to see / ask if i was giving up too much distance off the tee for that

Longtime V1X user, tried the TP5X and didn’t said any measurable gains in performance to switch.  Did switch from the V1X to the V1 with the 2017 release.  Our club has very soft slopping greens and the Std V1 was more manageable on the greens for me.

I did the Prov1 testing and TP5 testing along with Callaway and Srixon and for me, the tp5 won. Flies a tad lower and just goes and goes and very workable around the greens too. Highly recommend them.

confused frankly with all these balls
prov1x said to fly higher,,,but prove spins more?
is it the same with tp5 and 5x?
isn't the one with more spin the one that flies higher?

so tp5 and prov are the ones that spin more, right?
off irons let's say
so they would produce higher ball flight for me then, right?

thanks
appreciated

Tried the TP5 and did not particularly like it, I found it harder feeling that the Titleist ProV1.
