The TaylorMade yellow seems to have a bit more of a green hue in it. If you are losing the yellow in lower light, how can you possibly track a white one?View attachment 9007118
Switched to yellow today playing with the wife. Had an old one I started with that had already played a round, and switched to this one just before the turn. Hitting some fairways (and some limbs), couple tough punch outs from mixed hardpan/rocks/twigs, and every lie in between, and this is my ball after cleaning. Definitely not perfect, but it's interesting to me that what seems like a softer cover holds up fine for me and the way I crunch balls, but I can chew the cover off some other X's (that seem thinner) in just a few holes/couple specific lies. I think they seem to take on colors and look dirtier than previous version, but I don't have any actual playability issues. The ProV1x doesn't actually seem any better to me overall. Marks in different ways, but I pull them after the same number of holes on average. Haven't put the new Srixon XV into play, so can't say on that one, and I try not to compare balls across different types (X vs. non-X, hard vs. soft, whatever). I can generally play a full round with the TP5x though, with it doing everything I want it to do, and that's about the most I get out of any ball. So I'm sticking with 'em.
I don't play yellow much. Mostly when I play with casual groups and one buddy, so this isn't my area, bit I think I actually have a harder time tracking this yellow than a couple others. I lost it a couple times today in lower light, and I've noticed that before. Might just be a me thing.
