The TaylorMade 08 TP Red golf ball is a four-piece ball designed for higher spin players who want the ultimate in tour performance. Its four components include 1) NdV4 core, consisting of an advanced neodymium compound that delivers faster ball speed to promote more distance. 2) Distance Mantle, consisting of a copolymer compound that boosts COR and initial velocity to further enhance speed and distance. 3) Feel Mantle, consisting of an elastomeric compound that allows this ball to deliver 15% softer feel than the original TP Red, while also enhancing spin control. 4) Cast Thermoset Urethane Cover, which is the tour standard for predictable spin and supreme shear-resistance.TaylorMade’s 08 TP Red's 360-dimple pattern promotes a mid-to-low flight, and also incorporates TaylorMade's proprietary Low-Drag Performance (LDP) aerodynamics to promote improved distance on the most common off-centre hits with the driver, which occur on the upper portion of the clubface. LDP was developed to help golfers achieve longer average driving distance. Additionally, the TaylorMade 08 TP Red is engineered to promote especially high speed and distance off the driver; to deliver controllable full-shot and greenside spin; and to be exceptionally resistant to the effects of head winds and crosswinds.

The 2008 version of the TaylorMade TP ball features the LDP technology which did seem to give it a lower trajectory. Distance with the driver was as good or better than a Titleist Pro V1 in our playing test and the feel on and around the green was very good too. If there is a scuff mark on the performance of the TaylorMade TP ball, it is that the cover does seem to mark a lot more easily than the Titleist so the cover conscious among you may feel you have to change this ball more often.
