October 30, 2015. TaylorMade Golf – TaylorMade Golf's second most popular ball brand, and with three Tour Staff professionals in the top ten according to the Official World Golf Ranking Rankings, announced its 2016 range of golf balls. These include the Tour Preferred X, Tour Preferred X, and Project (a). TaylorMade's new range of models offers an exceptional feeling, performance, and spin round the greens. This line-up was immediately successful as Justin Rose, a staff professional, switched to the new Tour Preferred X ball before he won the UBS Hong Kong Open.
TOUR PREFERRED GOLF BALL
TaylorMade – Softest Tour ball. The Tour Preferred (four-layer construction and 80 compression) ball features TaylorMade’s new-generation Speed. A mantle inner layer made from a material more than 65% softer and flexible than previous generations' mantle. Engineers developed the new mantle, which is softer and more flexible than the previous generation. It also retains the high performance of the Tour Preferred ball.
Tour Preferred offers a better launch and spin with long irons. The ball maintains the same distance off of the tee as the Tour Preferred X, but has a softer feel. TaylorMade's Soft Tech casting urethane covering, the longest lasting and strongest, is still featured on the new Tour Preferred. LDP, Low Drag Performance Aerodynamics (LDPA) has a 322 dimpled pattern. LDP provides the tour player with the distance and flight speed they desire. Tour Preferred's new design is for golfers of all abilities who want a better performance ball for their game.
RRP: 58 EUR per dozen. Availability: 15 December 2015.
TaylorMade's Tour ball with the most control: The new Tour Preferred X ball (5-layer construction, 87 compression) features a new thicker re-engineered Soft Tech cast urethane cover for more greenside control and the same LDP 322 dimple pattern found in the Tour Preferred. The Tour Preferred X is similar to the predecessor but offers low spin off of the tee and low iron ball flight, with more greenside spin. This preference was preferred by top players around the globe.
Taylormade Tour PreferredX 2016 Golf Ball Review
Tour Preferred X uses a five layer structure.
Although the compression has dropped by 1 point to 87, it is still the same as the previous model and the 2014 X models feel the same. Soft Tech cast-urethane is slightly thicker that before, and has the same number 322 dimples than the standard ball.
Around the green, the Tour Preferred X sounded a bit more firm than the standard Tour Preferred. It also felt similar to a Pro V1x in many aspects.
The X is more suitable for high-spin or swing speed players, but if you decide to base your ball decisions on the feel of the greens and the differences between Tour Preferred models, this will make the difference.
Except for the greenside feel of the ball, performance figures showed the major differences. The Tour Preferred X spins a lot more using a wedge. It isn't surprising considering the increased compression. But the feel is harder.
You can see the Tour Preferred’s higher launch and spin with the longer irons. The Tour Preferred stops faster, but has less roll.
Both drivers performed at the same swing speed, though the Tour Preferred was slightly faster. However, it still gave me the same distance despite having a marginally higher average swing speed.
2016 Taylormade Project A (A) Golf Ball
To join them will be two tour style ball models, the Project (a), which replaces a ball released last year and offers amateurs spin and better performance beyond 30 yards.
With the new 2016, version of the compression, the compression was 70. That's 18 more than the 88 that the original model had. It is designed to feel softer on the face and give the approach shot more movement.
This is because amateur players often generate less spin than those on tour who are able to compress the ball better at impact.
Other than this, Project (a) still features many of its original technologies, such as a REACT core that provides more distance, and the durable Soft Tech cast Urethane cover, which gives you spin and feel.
Prices for 2016 TaylorMade Golf Balls All three new TaylorMade balls will be on sale from December 15th. The 2016 TaylorMade Tour Preferred Duo costs PS44.99 per dozen, while the Project (a), retails at PS34.99 a dozen.
Taylormade Tours Preferred forgiving?
TaylorMade Tour Preferred Cavity-Back or Cavity Irons are the largest and most forgiving of the irons. Although they look similar to the SpeedBlade irons, their compact size means that they can be used by handicappers with a lower handicap. The key to the forgiveness is the Speed Pocket in the sole.Jan 6, 2014
