TP5x ‘21 vs CSx LS ‘22

I keep going back-and-forth on these two models.  Any feedback would be great. Does anybody feel there is any advantage over the other in regards to short game performance?

The main reason I narrowed it down to these two balls is due to the least dispersion on my driver which is good with both.

IMO other peoples opinions don't really matter.  some people want a ball that releases more and some want a ball that checks up immediately.   Which is working best for how you approach the short game?   Which gets you closest to the hole?   Which gives you consistent results? 

What are you trying to accomplish and which ball works better for that approach?

I've played both in back-to-back rounds. For me at least, TP5x was just a more stable and predictable ball. It flew straight and the dispersion was really impressive. On approach shots, I just hated the feel of the CSX LS -- it was like hitting a rock. Distance was similar with maybe the CSX LS edging out TP5x, but honestly it wasn't anything crazy long, but maybe a couple feet. I just wish TM would have a more straightforward line-up like Titelist. TP5 is a higher spinning ball, TP5x has more moderate spin, but they don't have a premium, truly LS ball. I guess you can say the Tour Response is their lowest spinning option, but that's a low compression ball so maybe a high compression, low spin ball would fill a gap in their premium line-up.
