After testing the MP-S ball in Tunisia when it was first launched a few years ago I found it to be a strong contender to Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x. At the time I hoped they would bring out an X version as I prefer a low spinning ball and when it finally appeared on the market in April 2015 I knew I had to put it through its paces.


The ball has a 4-piece construction and dual core design that combine to reduce spin from your driver. This is achieved by using its 330-dimple configuration that helps give you a more penetrating ball flight, working with the 0.5mm urethane cover giving you more ball speed off the face gaining you extra distance.

Refined Urethane Cover: Reduced to 0.5mm thickness for increased initial velocity.

330 Dimple pattern: Configured for more stable ball flight.

4 piece construction: Adapted for stability at high ball speeds.


What I liked about the MPx is that it feels solid off the driver yet retains that softness when you are playing shots around the green and putting. I really enjoyed testing the MPs ball a couple of years ago and hoped they would bring out an X version, as I do tend to put to much spin on the ball with my driver.

The combination of the JPX EZ range and the MP x ball was a winner for me, I certainly was gaining more distance and with the MP-5 irons; they are a match made in heaven. The feel of the ball coming off the blade at impact is one I donít feel you can beat.

I know some players are worried about changing their golf ball and I totally understand where they are coming from I played the same ball for years, but believe me, you really should give the MPs or the MPx Ė depending on your spin rate readings Ė a try, I know you wont be sorry you did.
