Pros: Soft. good feel. good distance
I primarily use v1x and Taylormade Penta TP the original one.
To me the Pentas tend to feel better than the V1 and I feel that I can easily put a good amount of spin
around the green.
They are soft and I don't think my distance suffers at all. I would say that these balls are better for accuracy shots, rather than tee shots. Is it better than the original Penta? Not to me. It feels the same and performs the same.
Perhaps a much higher skilled player may be able to tell the difference between the 2.
One thing I don't like about them is that they don't last. I can easily put scuffs on the ball when I play with my wedges a lot.
Would I recommend them? I would. I would use this ball over the V1, but if I can get a better deal on the original Penta, I'd go for that instead, since they are practically the same good ball.
