The TaylorMade Soft Response Golf ball is set for a bright future following the release of the affordable ball for the 2020 season.
One of two new balls launched by TaylorMade for 2020, the Soft Response joins the Tour Response as new premium balls available at a price golfers will love.
The TP5 and TP5X remain TaylorMade’s number one ball, but the Soft Response will help plug the middle market gap that has been missing from the TaylorMade range.
What TaylorMade say about the Soft Response golf balls:
“You asked, and we responded. We developed Soft Response after surveying thousands of golfers about what they need from a golf ball. It’s designed for the player seeking soft feel without sacrificing distance.
“A unique Extended Flight Dimple pattern allows the ball to stay in the air longer at lower spin rates.
“The low-compression core gives the ball a super soft feel and performance benefits geared toward moderate swing speed players.The low-compression core gives the ball a super soft feel and performance benefits geared toward moderate swing speed players.”

TaylorMade Soft Response Design & Features
The TaylorMade Soft Response is a 3-layer golf ball and the softer version of the new range. It is ideally suited to golfers with moderate to slow swing speeds who are seeking a soft, responsive ball without losing distance.
The softer feel comes from the ultra-low 35 compression Hi-Spring core, while the secondary Speedmantle layer helps energy transfer and maximise distance on all shots.
It is the cover where the Soft Response differs most dramatically from the Tour Response. Not only does it have a soft ionomer cover for feel, the dimple design is also different with U-shaped dimples providing less drag and a longer ball flight.
The Soft Response is available in three colour options: white, yellow and red.
Verdict: Are the TaylorMade Soft Response balls any good?
The TaylorMade Soft Response will add another option to the marketplace for golfers playing softer balls, particularly for fans of the brand who have had to shell out of TP5s previously.
It will sit in a similar price area to the Callaway Chrome Soft and Callaway Supersoft and provides a not too dissimilar performance.
If you have a slower swing speed, then the Soft Response is definitely worth trying out in the coming months. They are incredibly durable and set for a big future.
