TaylorMade's New Golf Balls For 2008

I haven't even had a chance to try last years TaylorMade Red and Black balls when it's announced this past week that there introducing 4 new models for 2008(Do I hear discounts on last years balls, yippee).


The new balls are the Tour Preferred Red and Black and the Burner and Burner TP.

The new technology involved in these balls is called Low Drag Performance (LDP) and is a new aerodynamic dimple technology that helps the balls fly longer, even on your mishits.

“We analysed more than 80,000 swings and found that there was a significant amount of off-centre hits for players at every handicap level,” says Dean Snell, TaylorMade’s director of research and development.

“With Low Drag Performance, we’ve designed a technology that keeps the ball in the air longer while maintaining lift by reducing drag, or resistance against the ball in flight.”
The new TP balls will suit a wide range of players with driver spin rates between 1,000 to 3,000 rpm.
The TP Red is a four-piece ball suited to players with a higher spin rate.

The TP Black is a three-piece ball aimed at the lower spin player.

The complementing Burner and Burner TP golf balls feature the same LDP technology but have further design attributes for greater out-and-out distance off the tee.

The secret to big hits lies at the centre of the ball where a high-energy/low compression core combines with a special SpeedMantle layer to limit the spin off the driver.
But the Burner’s distance doesn’t come at the sacrifice of feel. The core’s 75-compression count combined with a soft loathane cover guarantees excellent spin and touch for greenside shots.


Today's Golfer in the UK has already received some new balls and have posted a review of them. Enjoy!
