TP 5X vs TP5 distance off of tee?
Posted 03 May 2018 - 09:26 PM
Given how close all the top balls are today sometimes a few yards less with better control will help more then distance will.

IMHO, these are the longest balls I have played off the tee. Not 20 longer, just "huh...that got up there on that swing? Wow!" The thing that I now love is that I feel I am getting the same performance with the TP5 as I did with Tp5X just, for me, a better feel. I didn't hate the TP5x feel, I just like the TP5 better. I also like how both operate around the green. They both seem to be in a higher "window" when I look up in comparison to other balls (Chrome Soft, Prov1).
I am excited to start this season with a ball I have full confidence in!

Yet Martin Hopley got way less spin with same ball speed:
I really love the ball flight of the x off the driver, particularly in the wind, but there was a time when I thought the TP5 was the best ball ever made, so can't really go wrong with either. I think it's somewhat safe to say that for most folks with typical launch conditions on consistent strikes, the TP5x should eek out just a bit more distance for them, given they are not already too low spin with driver.

IMO only, TP5 feels softer but spins little less.

And the TP5 flies a bit higher.
