What we say...
The TaylorMade Burner golf ball has a high-speed core for fast speed and long distance.
The 360 dimple configuration limits drag for increased hang time and the complementing Burner and Burner TP golf balls feature the same LDP technology
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, TaylorMade claim.
The second TaylorMade Burner ball in this category divided opinion. We thought it was a cracker: long off the tee and massively impressive on the approach shots too. But some say that although it is solid off the tee, it is no higher than average when hitting wedge shots with it.
TG took all four balls out for a first hit and were impressed with the feel and feedback around the greens and how well the balls flew through the air

If you want a ball that is long off the tee but soft on and around the green then these fit. Add to that the reasonable price they sell for, you can't go far wrong. Also very hard wearing ball so fewer scuffs and scrapes, meaning longer lasting balls.
As someone who has always hit a short fade of the tee swtiching to this ball has really improved my drives. Even in windy conditions I now get only a slight left to right movemment rather than 40 yards worth and, as a consequence, am finding myself hitting 220 ish off the tee rather than 200. Only downside is the balls are not very widely available yet.
