Taylormade 'Lethal' balls
« on: November 29, 2013, 04:48:59 AM »
Anyone tried these? Are they as good as Srixon Z-stars/Pro V1s?

Iīm usually playing the ProV1x, but like an occasional Z-Star XV as well. The lethal is a nice ball, which performs pretty similar. On the putter and short game the Titleist feels much better (to ME), so thatīs why I didnīt change. Nothing to complain about the TM.

Thanks Jan. As long as they give a soft feel off the face I'll be happy. I've now bought some so we'll see how they go on Sunday!

I'd rate them between the ProV and the Srixon

For me the Srixon is a bit of a dud.  The Lethal is a good ball but like every other TM product
I don't play it because it's TM. 

Just a personal thing.  :)

Will be interested in what you think about it.

The Lethal is fantastic ball with stupid name. It's like a V1x performance wise but somewhat softer feeling.  Like unclej I don't want to play it because of the name but it is a performer.

I wrote a review on another site of the Lethal.  I think it is a great ball. Really interested to try out the new Tour Preferred and see if it is an advancement (or at least the same as) the Lethal.

I played ProV1x (2013) all summer but definitely see myself loading up on Lethals if they really slash the price.

After 1 round I found that these are as long as anything I've played. Spin seems to be low with the driver and fw's. Can't really say what they're like with the short game because I have the touch of a f#cking Elephant! I will continue to play these as much as I can over the winter and report back.

Sad to think that since they introduced the prov1, nothing has come even close. I keep waiting for the next big thing to happen in balls, but nada.

better try the Nike RZN black.
rors and several other nike staffers swear by it.
lots of kick ass reviews and price is not bad either.

I hate to sound like a stuck record but the Cally Hex Black pro is very good.

Have you picked up a Callaway sponsorship deal or something?  ;)
