First Look: TaylorMade TP5 and TP5x Golf Balls

Taylormade TP5 and TP5x balls are one of the most recommended balls when it comes to performance. Let’s figure out why.


Almost everyone talks about the Golf Clubs which can make your game better by having more distance & better shots. But the game also depends on the type of ball you are using. Recently I am hearing more about the TP5 and TP5x balls, so brought these balls for testing and review to help you choose.

As the trend shows in company’s tour ball pairings, the version “X” is firmer than the standard. I tested out for this and found out that these balls also follow the rule but the difference is very minute.

The TP5 showed more satisfaction than the “X” Version. The clicking sound it produced is very low pitched and very muted. As some compression balls feel heavy on the putter it didn’t show that effect. I found the sound of TP5x is crisper than TP5, closer to ProV1. But again the difference is very minute, maybe most of the golfers have never found this.

Short Game:

The testing of the balls was started with the short-pitched shots and the received the same results as one would get from a urethane covered tour ball. I tried many different shots such as short pitched shots, half-swing shots, and full wedge shots, the spin was very reliable with any tour ball, I have tested.

I tried my high spinning shots with the Tp5x and interestingly found out that the difference was not that much to boast about. The company claims that both the balls have “highest wedge spin” in their advertising campaigns but with my testing and experience, TP5 is leading.





Long Game:

The difference between the TP5 and TP5x starts with the Irons according to their advertising campaigns. The difference is shown in the spin of the variants. The one with low spin is labeled as TP5 and the one with Mild spin is labeled as TP5x. My tests performed approximately the same. The difference was very minute & not considerable. However for high spin players, the difference can be much more significant.

The company has marked TP5 as longer and TP5 as the longest distance balls. This may be due to the slightly lower spin off the driver. Again the difference was not huge for me-about 150 RPM but I play low spin.

In comparison to other tour balls, nothing lacks in the features of TP5 & TP5. The balls deliver most of the features they boast about, I felt very little discrepancy between what is advertised and what is in actual, and that may also vary from player to player.

The TP5 and TP5 are as much amazing as the company describes them. Both the balls are amazing, but I am more comfortable with TP5. The thing which matters most it that they perform well throughout the game from tee-box to the green.

TP5 and TP5x balls are available on!



Titleist V1 & V1x Golf Balls

First Look 2018: Pro V1 & Pro V1x balls Review

First Look 2018: Pro V1 & Pro V1x balls Review

Total there are 8 different models of Titleist Pro V1/V1x from 1999 to 2014, and every model had a special feature which made them a hit from other competitive balls available.

In this blog, I will cover the latest hits of 2017-2018, the pro v1 and pro v1x. I will guide you about the special features these balls have from other available balls and what are the things which make Pro V1 & Pro V1x two separate models.

Titleist 2017-2018 Pro V1 is a 3 piece solid-core ball currently sporting 352 dimples pattern whereas the Pro V1x has four layers with 328 dimples.

This was about the features of the balls, now let’s talk about how these features make V1 & V1x different models.

The Pro v1: The pro v1 provides a softer feel on the club face because of its in-built technology of 3 layers & more dimples ( 352 ). Because of these technical features the ball generates low long game spin, less iron spin and high short game spin which gives it consistently mid-level fight as compared to pro v1x.

The Pro v1x: The four layers of construction and less number of layers than v1 makes it less soft than pro v1 and similar long game spin, more iron spin, higher short game spin, higher flight compared to v1.

Should I play with pro v1 or pro v1x?

Titliest Pro V1 Pro V1x Golf Balls Let’s understand out of the two which ball is perfect for you. The engineering of pro v1x provides it consistent flight with more distance more iron spin and higher short game spin.

On the other hand one more point is there which should be considered by all the golfers is that a golf ball must perform for all the shots during the round. Since the only dynamic force which controls the ball is the external force supplied by the club. Thus different shots require different swing speed in order to execute them properly because the swing speed required for driver is different for that is required for putting shot.

The best option you have to check out which ball is perfect for you is to test out them on the couse yourself. Once you have gone through both the models then you will clearly get which model is working perfectly for you & making your game better.

As a golfer, we know that a perfect golf  shot depends on  number of factors from the ball’s dimples to club head’s design. Thus similarly every swing is different & a single solution can’t fix everything. A golf ball that is exclusively engineered for low flight & less spin which is perfect for your fellow golfer might not be a good choice for you.
