I went to target yesteday to look for some Reds and they had one box left. Of course, someone had replaced the TP-Red sleeves with some Burner sleeves. Lovely.

After a complete round I will give my assesment.

Off the driver this ball is a damn rocket, and can hang in the air forever. I still got great bounce and roll even with the added spin. Off my irons I have no complaints really other than the slightly firm feel. The spin around the green was adequite, but not nearly as much as a Pro V1 or Nike Plat.

I heard these balls are no longer going to be sold soon because they are coming out with something new. Anyone hear anything about the taylormade TP black/reds?

Taylormade is coming out with a 5-piece ball, the Penta TP, that will be played by its staff in the PGA Championship. I believe the release to the general public will be later this fall though. Someone had a post recently about it. I prefer to play the TP Red over everything else. Comparable to the Pro V1x, but I think it's just a little longer and resists scuffs a little better. The TP Black will spin more. I know you can find them at most retailers for $27.50 per dozen, so they are affordable for a tour level ball. Worth a try if you've never used them.

I figured they were close to being discontinued with the $27 price tag. The markdown makes them the absolute best ball for the money imo.

TP Black spins LESS, not more. TP Black is comparable to v1x, not v1. Blacks are 3 piece, reds are 4 piece which spins more.

That's wrong (or was true for the first version, but isn't for the LDPs). And it's been covered several times already on the forum, so I'm not going to get into it here.

You guys are missing the question.. lol I'm not asking if the red/black is better was just asking if they were getting discontinued..

LOOOOVE the TP Reds.

However, trying to locate some TP Blacks because I want some more bite around the green.

Either way, for the money, I haven't found a better ball. I sincerely hope they don't discontinue them or increase the price for that matter. I've got this little sliver of hope in my head that with the dropped price they sold a ton of them and realized they're just going to undercut the rest of the 4-piece ball market. =)

Been meaning to try the Gamers though.

They have buy one get one free on the entire Taylor Made range here in OZ at the moment so either there are new balls coming out or they are doing some heavy marketing to try and get some market share off Titleist , either way i dont mind im a winner $80 for 1 doz pro V1 or $80 for 2 doz TP reds hmmm pro v's arent that much better !!

Is a 5 piece ball even necessary lol?

The Penta TP is the first 5-piece ball that I'm aware of! Anything the manufacturers can do to get us to buy expensive golf balls...they will do. If they can hook us with the discounted TP Red/Black golf balls, they have a better chance that we will buy these new balls. According to TaylorMade, these balls will offer performance benefits for all swing speeds. I know how I am, and I'll be the first in line to pony up $50 or so for a dozen of these 5-piece balls so I can immediately deposit them into the trees or lake at my course! But wow, I hit it 6 yards further! Hooray!
