Dave W says:

Be really interested to see a WILSON DX3 test…I love those balls but not played enough with the Pro V1 or other high end ball to compare.

Shredder4405 says:

TP5 VS PRO V1!!!!!!!!!

Kev1 Golfreviews says:

ive been watching rick for a couple years. his vids convinced me to buy my pings and i love them.

Ron Braak says:

Then also for price. Test pinnacle soft and rush.

Juan Díaz says:

Thanks for the video, please announce in advance next time you visit Lumine, I would like to meet you. JP

Why Not? says:

Review the VICE Pro Soft!

Chad Allon says:

Played with the TP5’s last week , wont be changing for a VERY long time! They amazing

baseballsux says:

bro lol dont just chop up 5 bucks those things are expensive af

L. Gyger says:

Your spinrates compared with your launch angle with the driver are amazing! The inside of these balls also look premium. I don’t know if I should use those premium balls like these or the Pro V1’s. I just don’t think a more expensive ball could improve my game. I found some Pro V1’s and they feel good, but I don’t think I’m good enough to feel a huge difference.

dean house says:

like the testing…would like you also to test a Wilson golf maybe sometime.the Wilson due urethane ball..would like your input..I think its a amaxing ball..cheers

karncis says:

did u use the same wedges ie milled grind for the prov1 reviews? if so then we can compare using the datas. if not please compare them. also would love you to compare the Nassau golf balls, although i heard that’s the same as the Kirklands

Brian Binnie says:

I’ll stay with the project a ball.

Jacob Budke says:

I really like the taylormade project a balls

Robert DeGroot says:

Do Srixon z star and z star xv review Rick.

Jack Moore says:

As a short hitter for my age (average drive carry 255 at age 18) i still prefer the control round the greens as i feel that makes more of an impact rather than that extra few yards off the tee the lower spinning ball would give me

Clinton Worden says:

Rick if your a high spinning player would you use the TP5 X ??

Lance Sedevie says:

Good content rick but need to be compared to gamer ball on same day so we can see some true differences even if negligible. Thanks for the video

leeh2503 says:

Could you compare tp5 vs prov1 please

Richard Ruzanka says:

LOVE these new balls! The TP5X is my new ball. It feels incredible.

Antonio CV says:

I think I might be wrong but I think the TP5 competes with the ProV1X. They are switched… red against black and viceversa. Not what Rick is telling…

Edgar Avila says:

volvik vivid

A Davis says:

the TP5x has a super durable cover, been using them for weeks and a couple cartpaths later it barely has a scratch

MrBucholzj says:

You should compare the tp5x to the vivid xl. They are both in my bag they fly completely different to the eye. For me they end up crazy similar location every shot. I want to know what is happening that makes the vivid xl look so high but play to the same.

David Gillespie says:

did you know which you were hitting? for feel knowing which you are hitting makes it hard to not introduce personal preference. Blind tests seem to be more valuable. Just have a mate color the numbers with a shrarpie and see if your opinion changes

Jack Albrighton says:

Bullshit you hit the TP5 slightly on the toe and you hit the TP5X right on the center. No wonder the ball speed was better on the TP5X.

Danny Jones says:

Thanks for the review, very well done and thorough. I play both of the Taylor Made and Titlist, you’re testing confirmed my suspicions.

A Person says:

When is the Pro V1 vs TP5 video coming?

Kyle Wilckens says:

“low spin” on the 7i is probably due to the fact that the i200 7i is 33 deg rather than a more traditional 35 deg. So for a 6 iron (which this basically is) that spin is pretty spot on.

Wedge Companies used to make more PW now you have iron companies making more “Gap” wedges. I wonder why?. We should all take a page out of Ben Hogan Ft.Worth book and just refer to lofts.

This loft manipulation by these big iron companies is soooo unbelievably frustrating and doesn’t add ANYTHING to quality of the game IMO. Just because a golfer uses a club with a 7 on it rather than a 6 does not mean you are any better golfer or the clubs are any better, just a different stamp. So silly.

The comment about low spin on a 7i may sway someones opinion when its not really accurate. enough rant. all in all I love the reviews, but FULL disclosure on the equipment is what we viewers generally appreciate about this channel. Keep it up.

Ryan Jurgens says:

Great test. Can’t wait to try some out. Hopefully I’ll find a couple that players will lose in the field OB lol

Bengt Kenneth Ivarsson says:

Please do a test on “normal” priced balls like the Titleist Trusoft, Wilson 50 elite and other two layer balls witch normal people can afford 🙂

Nicholas Smith says:

These TP5x’s are really good balls. I have played these since they came out. Switched from Titleist.

Paul Bear says:

Very nice review Rick. Does this mean you’re gonna start playing the TP5 then?

David Forde says:

Good clip . prefer the softer more spin around the greens !

Peter Baigent says:

I’d argue how I hit a ball with my driver makes almost the most difference. If I’m hitting a spin-ier ball I am missing more fairways. Or were you just implying distance wise they are all almost the same?

MoNKGo0Se says:

PLEEEEEASE do a review of the TaylorMade Project (a)!!!
