What we say...

2013 Balls Test

JR: Spin as expected for each club. Nice low, spinny flight on chips with consistent amount of run-out.

JT: Liked the combination of firm feel with a driver, but softness off the wedge and putter.

KA: Not as hot off the driver face as others. High spin levels gave me confidence to commit on chips.

The TaylorMade Lethal golf balls have five-layer technology offering optimum spin. Seamless dimple pattern gives a penetrating flight.

TaylorMade has made some massive strides in the ball market in recent years, especially with the launch of its first Penta model in 2009 – the first five-piece golf ball. The followup, the TP5, helped Darren Clarke claim his maiden Major title at the 2011 Open Championship... and now the Lethal ball has already assisted Justin Rose to a Tour win (it only took nine practice holes for him to decide that he wanted to put it into play). Dustin Johnson and Sergio Garcia have recently switched, too.

Lethal is a five-piece construction with a soft, inner core, three mantle layers and urethane cover. According to Dean Snell, TaylorMade’s VP of golf ball R&D, it was designed to extend flight after reaching its apex while controlling spin and producing better aerodynamics into the wind. The Lethal features a new dimple pattern that covers 86 per cent of the ball’s surface area, up from 80 per cent coverage of the Penta.

Because of the five layers, golfers of all abilities should benefit from the innovation. The ball uses “progressive velocity” technology, which means the fastest layers of the ball are on the outside. This maximises velocity, regardless of swing speed.
