  • Summary: A superb golf ball for the above average golfer. I would not recommend for a weekend hacker but if you have above average swing speed and hit your shots fairly consistently this ball will give you great results.

TaylorMade Penta TP5 Golf Ball Review

  • Conclusion: Golf Galaxy had TM Penta 5 practice balls on sale for $19.99. I bit. After 27 holes of play. I found that I may have gained yards on my long clubs (woods and irons). I hit a high spin high trajectory draw so this ball stuck and danced on greens for me. I had great chipping with this ball and it felt great off of a putter. This ball does not like to be "babied or hit cutely". You have to strike this ball on the sweet spot of your club or hit it with some velocity.

TaylorMade Penta TP5 Golf Ball Review

  • Conclusion: I am having trouble replacing my Pro V1x with the TP5. The V1x stops on a dime with everything through the 5 iron and I can hold a green with my hybrid. I have problems holding the green with my longer irons with the TP5 and dime stopping power only comes with the 8 iron and less. However, the drives are longer due to better roll out with the TP5.

  • Conclusion: "Already the first (and still only major) company to introduce a five-layer golf ball, TaylorMade has seen their golf ball line take off recently." Great review. I just wanted to note that the new Callaway Hex Black is also a 5 layer ball.

TaylorMade Penta TP5 Golf Ball Review

  • Conclusion: Good review, and I agree--the Penta is the best ball in golf (at least for me). I also hit the ball very high with a lot of spin--even with my driver--and every piece of long-game equipment in my bag is geared towards bringing the ball down. The Penta is my favorite ball primarily for this reason. And I'll add that you're one of the best reviewers on this site. Thanks for the effort!

  • Summary: I like how the Penta doesn't balloon off the tee. I can still hit it really high, but not with distance-sapping spin. The spin levels are really low off the tee. You can almost imagine reading the word 'Penta' as it leaves that first 30 yards off the tee. I hit the Penta further than the Callaway Tour iX I used to favour, that's for sure. The Penta, like many balls, has a slight 'seam', which is what I aim to hit off the tee to reduce spin further.
  • Pros: I started to use Pentas after finding one and promptly keeping it in play for three rounds! It was looking worse for wear when it met its watery end and finally disappeared from my life, but I was impressed enough to go out and buy a job lot of Pearl Grades from eBay right away. It's definitely longer off the tee than most other balls I've used, but not at the sacrifice of feel. Being a forged iron user, you can't tell the difference between hitting a tour ball and a ...
  • Cons: Does this ball cut up just as quickly as every other tour ball? Not quite. It's not the softest golf ball out there, but if you find yourself hitting a lot of aggressive wedge shots, you can skin them just as easily as the rest. In general play, though, you won't find any adverse skin loss!
