$30.00 buck a dozen, that's a sweet deal.

Best I can get them for is $39.99 then tax.

30 bucks a dozen for a premium ball is a great deal. Have played a TP5 but haven't hit the x. I liked the TP5 pretty well but I prefer the Srixon Z Star.

I've found some good deals on tp5 on eBay. I think TaylorMade makes a great ball. Maybe a hair less spin than a pro v but I find they fly a bit longer for me.

 

However I'm also in the minority that think the Nike rzn blacks are great balls as well.

 

Currently I rotate between tp5x Nike rzn black and srixon xv. All of which I bought for around 25 bucks a dozen.

Nothin wrong with having your own personal likes! Buddy of mine was quite fond of the RZN Black also. Good prices you are getting there!

Nike was really on to something with the RZN stuff, and making it work. The blacks and platinums were great, and I remember getting a sweet deal via rebate at Menards on the One Rzn X- 3 piece surlyn- that were rockets, straight and low, with not bad spin in close. As an aside- I think I ended paying $5 a dozen after the rebate, and I always need stuff from Menards anyways.

 

Sorry to jack your thread!

I have to say I'm intrigued by the TM balls. Cost is pretty much the rule out factor for me. They're all relatively close in performance so it comes down to $$

 

Vice Pro Plus for me. I can't find anything close for $25/dozen.

I just popped in here. This is a ball that I will try at some point - probably next winter.

 

Having written that I wish we would loose the notion that premium balls are $50 a dozen. All of them have loyalty programs where you buy three deals zen get one free. That brings the price down to around 37 per dozen.

 

The benefit of not hitting the ball 300 yards like everyone else on a golf forum and around 1/3 of the guys on tour, hey what can I say, we guys are good those guys are novices, at any rate the benefit of actually hitting ball around the statistical average for my age and ability level is that I don't loose very many balls. Generally I go through around 3 dozen a season.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Check out the thread on “What ball do you play?” Many of the questions you ask are answered in that thread. Thanks for your review! I love the TP5X and I get them for $29 a dozen- can't be beat!!!

Ive been playing the ball exclusively for over a year now, they fly a little higher than Prov1 and X  but with less spin. with less spin less movement in windier conditions, they track nice.

 

The biggest difference is irons 6,7, 8 and 9 they fly higher, further and with less spin. The practically come down straight. On par 3s I often find the green ball mark just a few feet away from the ball.

 

You don't need a trackman to see  the apex of the shot is higher. Of course if you are jumping around from brand to brand, model to model you won't know what I speak of.  BTW if you want to get to that next level of golf, you need to stay with the same model ball all year. Your scoring clubs will dictate this. Your driver not so much.

 

speaking of trackman the difference from a Prov1 and a Prov1 X

 

Snell: even Dean Snell will attest to the fact that premium balls have very little in common off the driver most will all be within 3-4 yards most will spin close to each, including a pinnicle that has been soaking in a pond for 6 months, however around the green from 140 yards in is where things separate out. 

 

TP5X is the only 5 piece ball on the market and especially good on those irons shots, High launch with low spin...You need far less spin when the ball goes higher.  Less spin more control with the TP5x. Something titlist will never tell you. The proV1 has been getting softer and softer each year...its also sacrificing distance, but they won't tell you that. 

 

Just ask Sergio on number 15 at Augusta, lots of spin on the chomesoft as in too much spin, same pin location different year look at the replay on 15 when he played with Rose  and his TPX5 in virtually the same conditions. The ball hit and stopped within a foot or two, it was coming straight down. 

 

My assessment the best ball on the market, you will have to recalculate your iron distances as mention above. My trackman has me 7-13 yards longer in my irons. What makes this significant is my driver club head speed is 94-98 MPH. I like being able to hit 8 iron rather than a 7 iron into a firm green.

 

Try em, but watch what they do with irons not drivers. .

I love the feel of this ball especially around the green. Some of my buddies have complained about the ball splitting on them out of the bunker. Anyone else have this issue? I personally have not seen it.

I was given a trial 2&2 pack of the TP5 and 5x. Going to put them in play today and see how they go.

Nice analysis. I just picked up a mix of 5 and X - They are bush balls, all in great condition. 3 dozen for $30! Even if there are some duds in there.... the price can't be beat!

I really really liked the TP5. Ive always been an X ball player. Lower spin and lower ballflight worked well for me. My SS is 105-110 and I have a very steep angle of attack.

 

The TP5 was not a wildly spinning, ballooning ball. I felt like the X did exactly as advertised but the TP5 straddled that difference enough for me where I actually preferred the higher spin.

 

TM did very well.
