TaylorMade debuts new PENTA TP5 Ball

Two years ago, TaylorMade Golf introduced the PENTA TP, the first five-layer ball in golf which was quickly embraced by consumers and Tour players worldwide.

Feeding off the momentum of 30 global victories including two major championships, the company is raising the bar in golf ball innovation with the new and improved PENTA TP5, an advancement on distance and feel that will appeal to all golfers.

Key to the increased performance of the PENTA TP5 is a 28% lower core compression, combined with the company’s unique Progressive Velocity Design. The result is lower driver spin for more distance and improved softer feel.

The PENTA TP 5’s faster outer mantle and thin tour-proven cast urethane cover delivers the amount of spin in the scoring zone that a distance ball can’t compete with. This gives players with slower swing speeds the added control to get up-and-down more often without sacrificing distance performance.

The performance of the PENTA TP5 is rooted in its five-layer construction — cover, outer mantle, middle mantle, inner mantle and core – which is engineered to optimize performance in five key shot categories that skilled players need – driver, long-irons, middle-irons, short-irons and partial wedges.

The soft, fast Inner Mantle, which surrounds the core, promotes soft feel, high launch and low spin off the long-irons for exceptional distance and high, soft-landing flight that helps the ball sit quickly on the green.

The semi-firm and fast Middle Mantle, which surrounds the Inner Mantle promotes mid-launch and mid-spin off the middle irons.

Mid-launch promotes control; mid-spin keeps the ball from up-shooting, ballooning and falling short of the target. Positioned just beneath the cover, the outer mantle is the fastest mantle in the ball and is easily compressed by slower swing speeds (ball speeds 120 mph and below), helping those players to generate higher ball speed for increased distance.

The new PENTA TP5 will be available at retail February 2012.
