TaylorMade Penta TP Golf Ball

TaylorMade Penta TP Golf Ball

TaylorMade Golf has introduced Penta TP, a new tour ball designed to deliver a superior balance of performance in five key shot categories, the result of three years of research and development.

Penta TP is the first tour ball with five solid-layers, with each layer engineered to optimize performance in five key shot categories that skilled players need – driver, long-irons, middle-irons, short-irons and partial wedges. The five layers of Penta TP include the core, inner mantle, middle mantle, outer mantle and cover, and each one plays a critical role in optimizing the performance of each of the five key shots.

Penta TP also incorporates TaylorMade’s LDP technology, which uses improved aerodynamics to promote increased lift to keep the ball in the air longer for more distance on the most common types of driver mis-hits, which occur on the top half of the clubface. TaylorMade robot testing shows that LDP improves driver distance on mis-hits dramatically, and that TaylorMade balls with LDP are clearly longer on driver mis-hits compared to competitive balls without LDP. Also, Penta TP’s dimple configuration delivers the same hold-the-line stability in the wind that the TP Red and TP Black are renowned for.


Penta TP becomes available starting on December 1, 2009 in the Sunbelt states (Florida, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, southern California and Hawaii) and February 15, 2010 nationwide at a retail price of US$45.99 per dozen.

Pricing in Australia is AUD$74.95 and will be available at retail in late December. New Zealand availability will be from February 2010.


Review 1

Totally amazed with this ball. I’ve been using the Callaway tour i and this thing blows it out of the water. driver distance is increased and the ability to control the balls flight off the club draw or fade is remarkable, both on irons and woods. Like puuucruphi said, the cover withstands any beating you throw at it, yet it is soft and controllable around the green.

PROS
stopping power with low irons
amazing distance off the driver
soft to putt with
excellent feel
low trajectory

CONS
ball tried to hide on me from long hits, but i found it


Review 2

Good quality ball that is well suited for good, not great, players. Low spin helped me keep drives in the fairway where I would hit a Pro V1x ball into the short rough. I had very good distance off the tee, probably averaging about 265. The ball's cover is not nearly as soft as the Pro V1 or Pro V1x, but where I would normally leave putts short with those balls, I was getting a good consistent roll off my putter head that seemed to suit my style better. I regularly shoot in the mid- to high- 80's but this ball helped me get down to an even 80 yesterday, and I would have done better if my back hadn't give me problems at the very end.
