Pros: Distance, no compromises.

Cons: Pricy.

As I found out last year when I reviewed the Bridgestone Tour B330 series, reviewing golf balls is different from reviewing a set of irons, or a fairway wood. You buy a set of irons once every few years, and shelling out a grand for a new set is a big deal. But people buy golf balls weekly, and rather than having to convince you that the newest balls are better (or worse) than what you already have, I just have to make a case for why the newest golf balls are better/worse than what else is out there.

Those Bridgestones (the plain Tour B330, to be specific) were better for me because they offered a touch more distance for me than other premium golf balls (ProV1x, 20XI-X, and yes, PentaTP) while maintaining the same level of spin that I had grown accustomed to. The difference wasn't staggering, but it was there.

These Penta TP5s steal back the spot in my golf bag, giving me the distance of the B330 (and ProV1x, and other comparable golf balls), while coming darn close to providing the spin of a higher-spinning ProV1. The original Pentas occasionally lost their spot in my bag because they were a middle-ground. They had decent distance and decent spin, but they weren't spectacular in any one category. The TP5s have gotten just enough better than I don't see putting anything else in play anytime soon. There is no compromise here.
