The TaylorMade TP5 Pix and TP5x Pix are a unique golf ball design with alignment at the heart of the design. GolfReviewsGuide.com review the latest two Pix models.
The TP5 Pix range is set apart from anything else available to golfers on the market – and that is because of what TaylorMade call Clear Path Alignment technology.
Subtle and small changes to the ball make a big difference, and that is what TaylorMade have come up with in the Pix design. Produced with tour star Rickie Fowler, the pattern on the TP5 balls help see a putting line like never before.
What TaylorMade say about the Pix golf balls:
“We teamed with Rickie Fowler to develop a ball that reflects his swagger and delivers the performance he demands.
“TP5/TP5x Pix is the ultimate crossroads of high-level performance and lighthearted swagger. It has technology you didn’t know you needed, and the swag you’ve always wanted.
“Strategically placed graphics frame the TaylorMade logo to form ClearPath Alignment and provide immediate feedback once the ball is rolling. The only way to see it is to play it.
“Multi-color high contrast graphics designed for greater visibility and strategically placed to enhance alignment.
“Powered by the same 5-layer construction as the hottest Tour balls in the game, TP5 pix combines the revolutionary technology of ClearPath Alignment and the unmatched swagger of Rickie Fowler with Tour-proven performance.”
TaylorMade TP5 Pix & TP5x Pix Design
The TP5 ball is the top performing model from TaylorMade and the tour-quality ball from the leading manufacturer.
The Pix is part of the range, featuring a Tri-Fast Core to improve speed from the clubface through to the ball. It provides additional compression and generates a stronger energy transfer from irons and drivers.
Dual-Spin Cover gives the TP5 Pix and TP5x Pix balls the maximum amount of spin from wedges and short irons, ensuring control and precision when landing the ball on the green.
The 5-Layer Construction increases the amount of stiffness with each layer, beginning with a soft outer and a hard core. HFM is a highly flexible material used on the TP5 Pix balls to maximise speed through impact.
The TP5x is the slightly firmer of the two models and offers added distance without sacrificing the spin levels that make the TP5 one of the most playable balls on the market.
But it is the ClearPath Alignment System that makes this ball something else. Each TaylorMade logo, along with the TP5 stamp, has been strategically placed on each ball to naturally guide eyesight towards the centre.
That in turn helps to line up putts and helps alignment when addressing the ball with an iron or wedge shots.
How good are the TaylorMade TP5 Pix and TP5x Pix balls?
The ClearPath Alignment technology used on the TP5 balls is a simple yet extremely effective feature that makes the balls incredibly appealing to golfers of all abilities.
The alignment aid stamps are the big selling point about the Pix balls over the standard TP5 and TP5x models.
But it isn’t just about the alignment on the putting green either. From the tee or the fairway, when the TP5 and TP5x balls are struck well, shots are rewarded with spin, control and precision.
What is the difference between the TP5 Pix and the TP5x Pix?
The TP5 balls have a softer feel and provide more spin but from a lower trajectory. The TP5X balls produce a higher launch and have a more piercing flight to add distance. But there is less spin and a more hard feel to the TP5xs.
How much do the TP5 Pix and TP5x Pix balls cost?
A pack of 12 TaylorMade TP5 Pix or TP5x Pix balls cost £39.99/$53.80 from most retailers.
