    2014 Taylormade Golf Balls

    Anyone heard anything about what they are offering?

    I was told they are doing away with the Lethal name, said it wasn't well thought out and that the really didn't like it associated with one of their products. They are coming out with a TP and a TP-X which probably is no more that a rebadged Rocketballz Urethane and the Lethal. The company likes the TP name because of the success they have had with it in the past.

    I actually like the RBZ U and the Lethal balls, but I spin the heck out of the RBZ U with wedges.

    Personally, I cant wait for their new balls. The Penta was one of the best balls I had ever gamed, then the Penta 3/5 whatever came out and was miserable, and then the Lethal this year was even worse.

    Also, the name sucks.

    I am an avid TM fan. My whole bag is TM but the Lethal name was a very poor marketing choice and I for one refused to buy the product because of it.

    PentaTP was one of my favorite balls they ever made. The TP5 didn't bother me too much since it was better for me than the 3.

    Others have already answered it for me more or less. I think the Lethal name is the nadir of TM's naming douchebaggery and that is saying something.

    I have liked each generation of TP better than the last and only played TP balls the vast majority of my rounds for about a 2 year span because of that. But the Lethal name was so bad I switched.

    Couldn't you just put a line through the name and voila, you now have a possible TP5?

    Personally, I like the lethal, and don't mind the name. It performs well for me, so that's all I care about. As long as they improve upon it next year, I'll give that a try too.
