What type of player should use either?

 

I have high ball speed and high spin

TP5x would be the place to start for a high speed and high spin player.

 

I ended up in the TP5 because I didn't spin the ball enough for the TP5x.

I've tested both balls on a LM.  The main differences I notice were feel and peak height.  The balls had similar spin and distance on most shots.  Once I got to shots around the green (50 yards and in) did the softer feel of the TP5's softness make it feel more responsive but a well executed shot with either ball ended up with a good result.  I don't produce very high spin due to my shallow angle of attack so I came to realize the higher launch and flight of the TP5x, even with its slightly lower spin, was the better ball for my game.  The TP5x has become a very predictable golf ball for me.  The height it flies helps stop the ball close to its pitchmark.  In short game situations, the ball has enough grab that I can play the low spinner or lob shots confidently.
