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.

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.

    • I don't know anyone personally, but I think we've all heard a story about some guy who was in the middle of some tournament, hit a bad shot and proceeded to throw his clubs in the pond then walked off the course never to play again.
    • Oh yeah, I've know several. Not really giving up the game entirerly, but giving up on going pro. They went on mini tours or play events the (now) web.com tour and just give up after a year or so. They didn't really have a gauge of how much time and skill it really takes to make a living playing golf. If you dont win or make a name for yourself in the college ranks or big international am tournaments, you're really behind the 8ball. 
    • The video was not made for this discussion but a good chunk of it applies - just because you lift your heel off the ground doesn't mean you transfer 95% of your weight right. That's what you had to say in response to "I don't see how the left knee moves as a point of contention"? Again, the other thread existed because there was a huge myth out there about maintaining the same flex in the trail knee. No such myth or disparity exists re: the lead knee. Her head doesn't move off the ball much (well within the "steady head" idea, particularly with a driver), of course she has some tilt away from the target - because her hips don't sway back, and her weight shifts slightly to the right. Very little more than someone with a "modern" golf swing. It's not the only place there's "tension." And no, "loaded" may be a common word, but it can have a bunch of meanings. Your right leg is not the only thing that's "loaded" in ANY full swing in golf. Again, the wrists, the arm across the chest, the elbow, your ankles, your torso is turned… all can be "loaded." That's my point. One of 'em anyway. I haven't attacked whatever it is you're trying to talk about. I am, however, trying to suss out what it is you're trying to talk about. Because if it's "the left knee should be allowed, sometimes, to move back to the right" then I don't think you'll find much disagreement. You seem to think it's more than that, though. I don't think they did either, but the reasons they did it may have changed, or the amount of understanding we have of the golf swing has certainly changed, or what's important in the golf swing may have changed, or a bunch of other things. While writing this, @billchao answered that pretty well too, IMO. I guess, since I don't know what you're actually trying to convey here, I'll drop out for now until you can figure out what it is you're trying to say.
    • I could also just learn to perfect my draw as the article said. Become good/great at a certain shot type. 
    • From a fellow Sconnie, welcome to the site.  Many, many golfers play fades from a closed stance.  They are mostly pull slicers.  Basically your club face is just closed in relation to the path you are swinging on.  Maybe start a swing thread sometime if you want and someone can try and help.  Otherwise there is not really much anyone can tell you.  Hope you stick around and become involved in the site.
