Summary: I've been playing with the Penta for over a year now and can honestly say that it decidedly outperforms the Pro V1 in all respects. The key feature here is weight distribution (more layers = even distribution across the spectrum of impact speeds). This also makes it considerably more forgiving.
Summary: I likem. The ball does everything Taylor says it will. I like the compressing feel off the clubs, you can tell when you hit it flush. Ball bounces off the clubface. For the money difference though, I'll stay with my Gamer V2s.
Summary: After playing the Titleist Por V1 for years I had to find a new ball. I switched to some Snake Eyes forged irons, they have so much feel the the Pro V1's now feel hard. I've tried the Bridgestone 330 RX and RXS which are good balls but the Penta TP5 beats them.
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.
Summary: Great ball, I have never bought and played a ball that I actually believe helps my game and makes me a better player. The spin is awesome around the greens, the drives are longer, and the launch angle off the irons make anyone I play with jealous.
Summary: Penta Power !!! I played both the prov1 & 1x for many years, I have switched to a better ball period. Far more durable, better distance, excellent spin as good as pro v1. Great ball to putt, it has no flaws.... I have gone back to all irons in the bag, put the hybrids away, these balls are great !!!
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.
Summary: This ball is in a class of it's own. Truly brilliant technology. When the industry cries for a 4-piece ball, what does Taylormade do?... Here's you 5-piece ball. Each layer serves a distinct purpose. Driving, woods/long irons, short irons/approach, chipping green area, and putting.
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...
