Conclusion: Allot off dickheads comment on this great review. There is like no way that a Penta goes 20 yards further than a pro V1 or other a like balls. So i think your talking bullshit if you can just reach par 5 s in 2 with changing a golfball.
Conclusion: For as long as I can remember, I've been a rabid fan of the ProV1x. As the review states, the amount of confidence you have in a specific ball goes a long way in determining how well you play. Each time I found myself without the Titleist in my bag, cold sweats and panic would reign.
Conclusion: I'm a +1 hdcp but certainly no equipment junky. I recently bought a sleeve of these to try (as opposed to my prov1x) and shot my low round of the season. Here is what I noticed in comparison to the prov1x: Slightly more spin off the driver, with a bit less distance (-5 yds) More iron spin Much more...
Conclusion: My 12 year old son played with them a couple of days ago. He is a good player and beginning to consistently shoot in the 90's. He just told me how great they were and said he was bombing his drives. He measured one with my GPS at 248 yards which is his longest drive to date.
Conclusion: There were TP Red balls that exceeded the limits and rules but Taylormade corrected that problem and changed the TP Red ball so it met the requirement to play on the tour. It depends on which one your friend is playing with the right balls or the wrong balls.
Conclusion: Used the TP red and black LDP all year, replacing the Pro V1 and loved them, but this ball is even better. Up here in the great white north it's been a golfer's fall, but still cool in the morning and evening so we know about the loss of distance. Solution?
Conclusion: I'm a northern states player. I loved the Penta when we had 80+ degree days - fantastic around the greens, great feel, and good tee to green as well. However, I just played on a high 50's day, and I noticed an obvious lack of distance driver and irons - like a club short, all day long.
Conclusion: come on! 20 yards longer is just a ridiculous statement. I hate when people say stupid things like this. The Penta is certainly a great ball and from tee to green it's extremely hard to find a better ball. But 20 yards longer than the B330 is just not even believable.
Conclusion: Very Complete review!! Good Job Erik!! I've been playing the Penta since the weather in Quebec permitted us to play golf. I've played the ProV1x since i can remember but this one will stay in my bag for a while. I find it way more durable the the ProVs.
