Penta reporting for duty !!!,
This review is from: TaylorMade Penta TP Golf Balls (1 Dozen) (Sports)
I am really starting to like this ball. The overall performance is simply terrific. My normal drives from the tee box play a strong hook and now with the Penta my tee shots are on the fairway. I was determined to stop playing other golf balls besides my Z-star, but I knew the Z star was not giving me enough spin around the green. I tend to find myself chipping alot off the fringe and my first chip shot with the Penta landed 2 inches from the hole, something I never did with my other golf balls. Somehow it seems this ball is intuitive because it does what you ask it to do. It almost seems to be very forgiving too....I can't explain it any futher until you try it out for yourself....trust me.
I do notice however that it seems a little clunky or thick, but I think with time that will go away. What I am after is lower scores and more confidence on the tee and around the greens. Regarding putting, the Penta truly shines in giving me a true, muted, and straight putt with my Cameron.
All my approach shots have landed safely with very little back or front spin, and I am happy for that in my game. My swing speed is 100mph with my driver and distance compared to the Z-star is the same. With only playing two rounds with the Penta, I would advise this ball as living it up to the hype that Talor Made proclaims. I know the price is on the high end as compared to the PRO-V1, but I want to say that Penta has a slight better edge in performance than the Pro-V1 off the tee, simply because it spins less. I do recommend the Penta over any other ball in the market, except the Pro-V1.
