Just had some shipped to my house yesterday. I just ordered online instead of driving around hoping to find them. I am excited to try them. Like any 2 piece ball with me not being an overly high speed swinger, they should work. Only question is does it work better than others.

I believe the S is a three piece, "Also announced is the new Project (s), a 3-piece Ionomer cover ball designed for slower swing speeds. Compression is lower than that of Project (a), and according to TaylorMade, offers the softest cover in its category."

Yes, I know it's a three piece ball but with the cover I am associating it with other 2 piece bells I play due to how it will handle around the green. I am hoping it does well from the tee on it's way to the green.

Let us know how they play!

Project (s) next to the a
Callaway Superhot Bold
Both matte finish, 3pc balls.

Based on the fingernail test the Superhot has that rubber silicon cell phone case feel to it. The project s not quite as grabby feeling.

They look similar, which ball do you prefer? Do you like the matte finish?

Stopped by the shop on the way home after work yesterday and noted a big, new stack of the Project s. Snagged them for the round at my club this Saturday. The sales guy said he likes them, that they feel soft. We have a "soft opening" at my CC this weekend. Robert Trent Jones Jr came out and rebuilt the greens, bunkers and practice facilities a while back and we are opening them up for play finally. I'm more excited than a fat kid locked in a donut shop.

I would love to give an on course report on these but here in south west Michigan, they called for another winter blast this weekend. So sick of this.

Played 18 with the S today - fantastic again. Love this ball.

Soft feel but firm distance, and a nice click on the putter.

Any greenside spin? Do they feel firm tour ball, softer; gamersoft or very soft like a supersoft?

I played one (s) for 18 holes today. Have to say long off all clubs but had some greenside check but still ran out a little. Very controllable. Very soft felt like a vice pro soft. Didnt have crazy back spin but stops in 5 ft normal iron shots. Even a 3 hybrid it stopped within 5 ft of the ballmark. For 25$ it blows away the dt trusoft and the titleist tour soft.

Mirrors my experience.

I played another 18 this weekend (second this week) with the S and again it amazed me...I can't love this ball enough.

I played the s today for the first time. Overall, I liked the ball - with one exception. It tended to balloon off the driver. Drives looked good but didn't go long and landed vertically down. Felt great off the irons. Certainly worth trying out, I think.

I played old Project (a) and a ProV this weekend. Couldn't tell them apart at all, maybe the ProV was a hair louder off the driver.

New project a has similar dimple pattern to the tp5 so it will be much better in the wind. Also project s has a higher flight so if you have a lower flight off of driver this ball will help big time. My 2 balls this year will be the project s and vice pro soft

Hit the TM "S" for a few holes yesterday, the ball seemed to balloon then fall out of the sky. I do like the "A" ball so was excited to play the "S" ball. Not feeling it-
I got good driver and long clubs distance, but my short irons were shorter. It was odd.
Here's Rick Shiels getting 303 yards out of TP5X off driver:

And him getting 303 yards out of Project (a):
https://youtu.be/xLO2GfobOcQ

But it's weird that TP5 is about 8 yards shorter off the driver, but wedge distances are almost the same despite WAY more spin. Perhaps you guys were hitting into a slight breeze that was up say 100ft in the air but you didn't feel it?

He plays out of a hitting bay. As well, the ball felt "bouncy" off the face, kind of rubbery feeling. The "A" ball feels nothing like this.

if someone ever figured out the matte golf ball thing with a decent cover they could have the best green side ball ever. as even crappy balls seem to role slow. Has anyone else putter with a normal urethane ball right next to a matte ball? the matte makes a lot of noise as it roles. almost like it is sticky. they also, almost always come up short if putted the same.
driver: SRIXON Z745
fairway: NIKE VAPOR 13*
3-4 IRON: MIZZY MP H5 GD AMT X100.
5-PW IRONS: MP5 DG AMT X100
WEDGES; CLEVELAND rtx 3.0 RAW
PUTTER; PING SIGMA G SHEA H
BALL; various, ask me that day.

Got in more action with the s. Certainly, it's short off the driver for me. On our last hole I hammered a drive down the middle. When it launched my son said, "Wow!" But, it went out about 200 and dropped out of the air. Weird. Very good with the irons, though. I did hit some good short irons into some greens and noticed that the s will hit, make a mark, then roll forward about 20 feet. It was consistent with that. I do still love the Project a, and want to try the new, revamped version. The a has been a tremendous sleeper in the golf ball industry, I think. And I'm not surprised to see a price hike on it this year - as this ball really should catch on. Perhaps the price hike is to cover the latest development work on it(?) It's great around the greens, nice off the irons, and all my monster drives have been with the a.
