TaylorMade Soft Response

A low-compression, three-piece ball with an ionomer cover, the Soft Response enhances distance and produces a softer feel in a manner two-piece balls simply can’t. Instead of addressing distance through a firmer cover (something done with some two-piece offerings), this ball uses a firmer mantle layer underneath the cover to increase speed for additional yards. In other words, this is a ball that can help generate plenty of speed for golfers who can’t always produce it on their own. That distance is belied by the soft feel at impact with just enough spin into and around the green created by the softer cover. In fact, this is the softest ball in the company’s lineup with a compression rating of 50, 10 points lower than its previous version.
