It appears in addition to the a Tour Preferred and Tour Preferred X they have added Mypreferred ball which retails for $45.99 vise the $31.99 for the project(a). Most likely the project(a) ball with different stamping and packaging. As a result I'm selling everything I have that is made by Adidas/Taylormade which is just about every golf shirt they have made in the last 3 yrs, five or so pair of shoes and all the clubs made by them. It seems Taylormade Golf has finally started producing new balls about as often as they do Drivers. New one every 3-4 months that is always bigger better and more expensive than the last one... Titleist may update their clubs and balls ONCE a year which is expected but not every 3-4 months like Taylormade has decided to do.... #1 Driver on Tour??? Possibly, but only because they pay these guys to play them... Maybe the pros will start buying their stuff.

This is the reason I haven't purchased anything from Taylormade in the last 5 years.  I used to play them through my bag from putter to driver.  But after they release a new model every 19 seconds I decided that I won't even look at them anymore.  And when I purchased my last driver a week ago I actually tested the SLDR and it was very impressive and it out performed the driver I purchased but I told myself I would never buy anything from them again so I put it back on the rack.  Your trade in retains no value with tailor-made.......

Why would they tell you that on the phone?  I'm really hoping that's false as it is my go to ball.  Stops extremely quickly on approaches for me and the price is definitely right.  Plus I got an Ace with one a few weeks back!

I have a sleeve in the bag as a my back up balls for the rounds I'm not doing smoothly on. I tried it my first round of the year on two holes and very impressed with them. Honestly feels a lot like your caliber balls

Wouldn't it be smarter for TM to stick to the same name and improve upon the ball without renaming it?  Most everyone refers to Titleist simply as ProV1 and everyone knows what that means.

Can anyone else confirm that these are being discontinued as @ray0557 stated? It's been a month since he called them and I just looked on TM's website and they are still listed as available. They are great balls for mid to high HCs, and my personal favorite. If they are indeed being discontinued, I need to stock up!

We can ask our TM guys, but I'm calling it doubtful.

I played the back 9 yesterday trying the Project (a) ball for the first time and thought it performed very well.  For reference, 85-90 SS, 18 HCP.  Looking at the Golf Digest Spin Chart I thought I might struggle with the driver but had no problem at all and the ball had plenty of distance, similar the the Gamer Tour (GT), Hex Chrome +, and NXT Tour for my SS, but not as long as the U/3..  For approach shots, the Project (a) held the greens well, simlar to the GT and better than the U/3 I have currently been playing.  Despite the GD spin chart, for my swing the Prov1x has a bit more stopping power on the green for me.  The Project (a) felt good off the putter, and although I did not hit any trees or cart paths, the ball showed little wear after the 9 holes.  Very similar to the GT with price being the most notable factor.

 

I believe the (a) stands for amateur, but looking at the stats and playing the ball once, I have to wonder what the big difference is between the (a) and Taylor Made's 2 Tour offerings?

After playing another round with the sleeve I had but losing a couple, I just bought 2 dozen for $23.99/dozen at Dicks.  It will likely have to share the bag with the U/3, but great quality and performance on the green for such a low price.

I got a box on a 25% off sale at PGATSS and played them Sunday. I enjoyed the ball and got it to dance once or twice( which I never do) my drives were pretty standard felt good off the club and liked the roll on the greens. Irons felt good as well. For $24 good really good.
