TP5 and TP5X feature a Tri-Fast Core and Dual-Spin Cover that combine for a 5-layer golf ball construction that is specifically engineered to perform with every club in your bag.
The first three layers of both models consist of a “Tri-Fast Core,” which is extremely low compression (16 in TP5, 25 in TP5x), as well as a progressively stiffer compression outer core (24 in TP5, 35 in TP5x) and even stiffer mantle layer (44 in TP5, 55 in TP5x). The result is improved transfer of energy at impact and increased distance on shots struck with all full-swing clubs. At the same time a soft, cast urethane outer cover and firm inner cover (the final two layers) combine to provide elite-level short game spin and control by pushing the soft outer cover into wedge grooves at impact.
Both models are designed to provide complete tee-to-green performance without compromising distance or short-game spin. But the TP5 does provide a softer feel (83 total compression) and slightly lower launch angles, while the TP5x feels a bit firmer (90 total compression) and launches higher.
