Colorado Springs, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/18/2013 -- In order to compete with the likes of the Titleist Pro V1, the standard for a high-quality golf ball, TaylorMade has come out with something that can really be the best ball offered to the golf industry. The TaylorMade Penta TP 5 is the second edition of the Penta and is better than ever. With its five layers, a first in golf ball technology, it offers players everything they could ask for in a golf ball: spin, distance, softness, accuracy. The Penta TP 5, just like the Pro V1, is a high-quality ball that gives golfers high-quality results.
TaylorMade’s main sales pitch here is that they are the only company that offers the market a five-layer ball. This is genius because it separates them from the pack. Titleist, Callaway, Bridgestone, Nike, and Srixon do not offer such a ball or at least have not come out with one recently. The idea behind this technology is that it gives the player a different aspect they look for in a ball in each individual layer. According to TaylorMade’s website, here is the breakdown on how the fiver layers work:
The new, softer core makes it easier to get maximum distance out of the ball.
The inner mantle gives players a boost of speed yet also feels soft at impact.
The middle mantle collaborates with inner layers of the Penta to build speed while working with outer layers to manage spin.
The outer mantle works with the middle mantle to maximize speed and with soft-cover for high greenside spin.
The Penta’s cover gives the player soft feel and high greenside spin.
TaylorMade wants the Penta to be a ball everyone will want because it delivers a lot of qualities a golfer wants. The Penta retails at $45 per dozen, which may be a bit pricey, that’s the price you pay if you want a good ball. Same goes for the Titleist Pro V1, the HEX Tour from Callaway, Bridgestone’s B330 series, and Srixon’s Z Series. All those are a great balls, but all come with a hefty price tag.
But, just know this: I have played all those balls listed above, and the Penta is one of the best. That five-layer technology is no joke, and anyone would agree the moment you hit a good shot, I guarantee you will agree. The greenside control, the distance, the softness; it is all there just as TaylorMade advertises. I recommend this ball for a low handicapper and not for high handicappers just because it won’t help them as much due to lower swing speeds. Especially at $45 dollars, higher handicappers can find other balls that are of more value to them (see Rocketballz, Titleist Velocity reviews.).
All in all, though, the Penta TP 5 is a great ball. There are lots of different facets to it, and it will surely rival the Pro V1 in years to come.
