TP Collection HydroBlast
WHAT IT DOES: This traditional, clean aesthetic matches well with weighting that maximizes stability and an insert that optimizes roll.
WHY WE LIKE IT: Like a cast-iron skillet or Cal Ripken Jr., this thing is durable. The line is milled from stainless steel that’s finished with a high-pressure water application for better resilience to dents and scratches. The company’s “pure roll” insert, featuring downward facing grooves, gets the ball moving end over end sooner to help with consistency and dispersion. Those grooves, which are just 0.5 millimeters deep, give slightly during impact. That in effect grabs the ball, which mitigates initial backspin to promote that forward roll. Not just effective and efficient, it feels soft, too. Adjustable heel and toe sole weights help with identifying the player’s preferences.

"I love how it has a nice soundtrack. Most stuff these days is muffled. This has a nice ting to it. Clean lines."
“An extremely responsive and lively face. You don’t have to force the ball with any more energy than required.”
"Very clean, effortless stroke. The ball came off with a vibrant feel. Super clean acoustics with a gentle ping; good end over end roll without feeling bulky or heavy."
