Heads up..... apparently theres a 'TOUR' version of the chrome soft on its way .... sometime in the near or not so near future.
Also received an email yesterday and within there was mention of the new "CHROME SPEED" ball, said aformentioned email:

The Callaway Chrome Soft changed the golf ball game and the the Chrome Speed takes it a step further with an additional piece (4-Piece).  The Chrome Speed boasts a 1.480" solid core, a softer 56D ionomer inner mantle, a firm 65D ionomer outer mantle and a 93 Shore A TPU composition cover Hit longer and more accurately than you ever have!

Boom

You might feel like your swing looks like an elegant swan floating on a calm lake with the sun glistening down and creating beautiful light reflections on the water,

 

But it more than likely looks like a drowning elephant.

I thought I read on WRX that the chrome speed was supposed to be released just after the Soft but they didn't because the Soft was so popular so they didn't bother. (Ended up seeling them for $20 a doz in the US via 1 shop online only).

 

I read about the tour version of Soft some time ago and if it is that much better than the soft then it will be going in the bag as a trail against the soft. Apparently the tour guys have been playing it most of this year so have been hanging fo rit!

SR 1,2 and 3 are being phased out already.  Replaced by the Chrome Soft with very low 65 compression and the Chrome whatever which will have a compression of 85 which is below the SR2 (91) and SR3(93).

 

Already bought 2 doz of the SR1 from Drummonds who are running out the SR range at $39/doz.  Hopefully I can get more at an even lower price.  Once used up I'll have to experiment again.  Stuff all balls with high spin and a compression around 73.  Only current available ball is the Wilson FG tour at 70.

Have you looked at any from the Maxfli Range?

No I hadn't.  The new U/6 range might be interesting.  Compression data is hard to get though.

Hate Project A, like chrome soft.

Project A feel dead off the clubface.
£1000 on Spieth to win all 4 majors this year.
Had to get it in UK, none in Oz.

a little note on compression..... with new tech and multi layer (4+) balls the compression of a golf ball is becoming irrelevant. Its all about how the layers interact with each other and how deep into the core energy travels and therefore thats why you are starting to see swing speed ratings on the box of your new pills.

 

While I am ranting heres some little known facts about COR (aka CT) and the "trampoline" effect of clubs..... The Trampoline effect is a load of marketing B.S. - by the time the clubface flexes inwards from striking the ball, then gets to its maximum concave excursion and therefore starts to rebound back, the ball has already left the clubface. Any forward movement of the face to further accelerate the ball (trampoline) is a moot topic and doesnt do anything other than get the face back to its neutral position.      

The counter-intuitive thing about COR and the reason its limited is: the more the face flexes, the less the ball squishes against it and the rounder a ball stays during impact the longer it will travel.

Obviously there is a critical point where a tap that dosent deform the sphere (EG a putt) becomes more forceful and starts to cause both ball deformation and face flexion. At this point the above starts to take effect and works on a logarithmic scale.   

 

At this point those that have just read this will all be more confused yet somehow more enlightened however it wont help you hit it longer, or straighter, or score better, in fact to the layman its utterly useless information.

How does the Fibonacci Sequence fit in?

you divide every third number in the sequence by the square root of pie to establish the initial points of measurement for the X axis on the logarithmic scale chart.

 

You see - this is what happens when you start talking with someone like Russ Ryden about the science of custom fitting, EI modeling and shaft engineering. 

My advice - dont do it - stay ignorant and just listen to Jon when he tells you that this shaft will be good for you. You dont need to know more or why. Just hit it.

Right then.

So I swing a driver at 95-100.
I'm looking for a summer ball that will stop on the green.
I am b or c grade. And don't want to loose length.

What pill?
