In my experience, decently low spinning. Feels really hot off the face though, wish I could find some more of these for a decent price.

I  was playing the TM for the last year.  From what I gather they are pretty close to the Kirkland ball in construction and performance.  I've since switched to the Kirkland solely due to the price. It would be great if Costco could find a way to make these more readily available.

I've played Chrome Soft since they came out. Recently when on holidays at a resort course which wasn't busy , I did a ball test with these.

Chrome Soft
Srixon Z Star
TM Tour Preferred 2016

Z Star longest, good spin and feedback
Chrome Soft, distance 2nd (within 1 metre of Z Star), ok spin, little feedback
TM Tour Preferred, shortest by up to 5 metres, best combination of feel and feedback. I feel this spins too much off the driver which cost it distance.

Once I've used up the Chrome Soft I'll switch to Z Star.

I find they jump of trees. I think the trees on my home course might have a non-conforming COR.
Just say'in...

The 2016 TPx is an awesome ball....

Great distance off the driver
Very easy to control with the scoring clubs
Good feel off the putter

IMO it's a better ball than the new 17 TPx....but that is my opinion.

Anyone know performance wise how the Tour Preffered X plays in comparison to the TP5X? Always trying to save money in this game and $25 a dozen is a bit better than $45. Also seeing these posts makes me miss the old TP Reds :cry:

I'm always one generation behind on the TM balls.  Have found and played some TP5X and they didn't "wow" me at all.
