Taylor Made new "lethal" ball?

21 posts in this topic

Anyone had a chance to demo this new ball?  I heard Justin Rose talk about putting it in play this year; the name sounds gay, and I hope it's not too much of a departure from what I love about the TP5.

It was called Project 5 in its prototype phase.

I haven't played it yet, but agree hope they didn't stray away from the successful receipe of the TP5. I've gamed the Penta for years. If this ball sucks, I'm not sure what I'd use?

They do still list the TP5 on their website.

I don't really care for the name "Lethal".  I'm a fan of good marketing and believe TM has one of the best marketing organizations in golf but imo they are getting very close to the edge of losing credibility.  Titleist has lead the industry for years with a model named Pro V1, which proves if you have a good product you don't need to give it a ridiculous name to get market share.   I like of the Penta TP5 a lot and will continue to game them as long as I can find them, hopefully by then TM changes the name again.

If you don't mind me asking, what part of TaylorMade Lethal sounds "gay" to you? And what does a "gay" golf ball sound like?

I love the TP5 and I'm looking forward to the lethal. The name doesn't matter but how it preforms

I'm tired of the marketing. Give it a normal name, give me some facts, and yes I will play it, my coach made it our school ball. I will just use those when the probability of losing a ball is high, if not,pro v1 or nxt tour s for me

Why would you pick an NXT over a ball that is twice the ball the NXT is?

Because I dont want a seam on my ball, and I always keep a tour yellow ball or two in my bag in case of an overcast day.

    • XE1 Wedge: Have you tried it?
      It may be great but at what cost?  Not willing to lose my dignity to possibly save a shot or two.  Plus I love my jaws wedges with the md grooves. Straight ?. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Well said Mr.  Desmond the funny thing in all this is that somehow poor people support Trump against their own best interest. And call bernie a communist despite not really knowing what that or socialism is or the difference between the two. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Bernie says the system is rigged - stats since the 1980's prove that a great amount of wealth has shifted towards a very small percentage of people. Does that not concern you?  Walmart employs people with such small wages that their people are on welfare, so the argument goes that Walmart is a huge beneficiary of living off the government tit. As to Bernie's war against financial institutions, can you doubt that Wall St helped out the 2007 Depression? Completely irresponsible behavior based on greed. Hedge fund managers get capital gains rate on their compensation? Ridiculous. How many people do you know make over $10M on ordinary income? That is where he proposes a 52% tax that become 73% when one adds SS and Single Payer taxes, and then you have the state income tax, so it would get high. And it is too high, but he would not get that through Congress unless we truly had a revolution and all the Dems came out to vote for the revolution. If all Dems vote, Pubs lose except in areas so gerryrmandered that the one party it favors will always win. Bernie on guns? He won't take away guns, it's not in his record. Bernie is not snake oil -- Bernie and Trump are here because of the last 30 years of growing inequity, political correctness and divisiveness. If we do not address it with traditional politics, then eventually people will wake up and vote their interests, which would be Sanders  or a similar politician. It is time for change, the last 30 years have been tough on all levels of the lower and middle classes while the upper class have the "let them eat cake" attitude. That only takes one so far before people vote for big change. I asked a 20 something the other night who she likes, Trump, Cruz, Sanders, Clinton - I said Clinton would work with the other side, Bernie wants a pipedream - she said "I want Bernie." I just said if you want Bernie, you better get out the vote because it will take a lot of young people to do it. Before I am "labeled" again, I don't think any candidates in either party are to my liking. But I think we do need incremental change ... now to reverse some of the last 30 years and renew the American Dream -- it should be for all, not 1%.
    • Anyone enjoying the drink tonight?
      Hopslam last night, just released by Bells.  Best beer in a can, which used to only be in a bottle.  
    • How do I organize a charity tournament to be a raging success?
      Try and get individuals to contribute.  If you have a hundred golfers each contributing a hundred dollars, that is 10,000$.  Easier sometimes than convincing a business to contribute say 5,000$.  The second thing is make it a fun family day with some events post the round.  Your spouse and kids will enjoy the day and you are more likely to spend some money.  Say a stall selling small knick-knacks or stuff for kids etc. Sad that you can get a stroke at 26, but why can't they figure out what is wrong with her anyway
