TP5x VS PRO V1 left dash


Recommended Posts

I play a Taylormade TP5x ball and they are great on lowering my spin. 
no putts given has talked about the Prov1 left dash . 
wanted to know if they are close to the same ball or does the Prov1 left dash have a edge on taylormade?

Depends on the model of the TP5x you are playing. The 2019 version was more in the category of a Left Dash, but the new 2021 version of the TP5x was softened to add some spin and feel making it less like the TP5x. The high launch low spin ball space has some great current options including the Left Dash, Chrome Soft X LS, and Bridgestone B X.

I will fully agree.  I have been a dedicated TP5x player.  I was enamored with the 2019 version.  It cuts the wind very well, which is a consideration here.  The new TP5x I do not like as much and I consider the left dash to be what the 2019 TP5x was. 

I have no idea why companies take winning formulas and change them to something that I think is pretty different.

Supposedly because the Tour Pros ask for the changes.

Makes sense.  Those guys need to have an event in a high-wind environment.  Anywhere on the frontier strip will do - TX, OK, KS, NE, WY, MT, SD etc. 

Are there any other good wind-cutting balls out there?  For me that is of primary consideration. 

I have been cleaning GG out of them (left dashes), just because i know companies can't help themselves when it comes to tinkering and I'll be glad I had a supply of them.
