Having created the first 5-layer Tour ball (the PENTA), TaylorMade have continued to search for improvements on their Tour level balls. But what would they call the ball that would kill off the PENTA and continue it's success. The answer: The TaylorMade LETHAL ball.
The TaylorMade LETHAL ball is a five-piece multi-layer ball played by hundreds of TaylorMade's Tour players across the globe.
TaylorMade's R&D team work hard to create a ball that continued the PENTA's superior wind performance and spin control. The advanced LDP (Low Drag Performance) 322-dimple design they settled on helps those keys aspects, and promotes longer, straighter shots with better control.
The five layers combine to offer optimal spin control for each shot and every club in the bag. A soft core helps keep driver spin low, an inner mantle reduces the spin of long irons for a penetrating flight, a middle mantle layer works with the outer layers to combine controllable spin and softer feel, the outer mantle promotes a low-launch, high spin performance for short irons and wedges and the thin, cast Sta-White Urethane cover provides excellent durability and creates added spin around the green.
The fastest layers of the LETHAL are on the outside of the ball, maximising velocity regardless of the speed of golfer's swing. The result? The TaylorMade LETHAL can be played by amateurs of all levels as well as Tour professionals.
