Doesn't matter if I hit a hard distance ball, or a soft spinning ball.

They all go little distance and spin like fark when i slice :(


Although i got some Callaway Supersofts for Xmas. Looking fwd to trying them now.

Awesum ball. :-)

Ive hit a lot of new balls long and straight in the water , over the fence , into a moving train and in a brothel car park. Just the way we roll in the west.

FYI Call Hex Chrome would be my ball of choice.

It's rude not to hit it into the brothel car park.

Well talk is Phil Mickelson used it at the Ryder Cup and drawing from his comments may use it on tour....

 

Now he is on the payroll for Callaway and needs to sell the ball but to say its the "best ball" he has ever played is a big call....

 

After that and reading the results from WRX as they have been playing it... I am hanging for this ball now...

it seems to be similar to the earlier Chrome 3 piece low compression ball,,,not

a whole new approach to design etc at all. Yes Phil like many Tour players have

found the Tour X type balls to be way to hard in the cold as many players here

have found,,,

 

Wilson FG Tour and the ProV1 are similar ,,, for some players too soft and too

much spin. Selling price in Oz though should be about $40 I would think.

Quite a lot of hype around these. If they're more than $30 a doz, they can jam it

65 compression ball

 

looking at some reviews   for those that have had the priveledge  some are not happy with this ball

 

look at marc crossfields  youtube on this ball he is not his energetic self   like  he is over some equipment

I don't think he wants to endorse this ball

 

however I could be wrong 

 

but some are also saying to those with slow swing speeds  this ball will help dramaticly for the game

 

 

I think there is some conflicting info

 

I will give this  ball ago myself when it comes out  to make up my own mind wether I stay with the sr2 in the callaway series of balls


I AM ALWAYS FORCED TO DO SH1T I'M NOT QUALIFIED FOR. LIKE BEING NICE TO BLOODY ID1OTS :P :D

$45/doz from Golfbox.  Speed Regime range has dropped to $49/doz at Drummond (was a laughable $60/doz originally).

I had a putt with one in the pro shop and compared to a pro v its way softer. Feels very nice off the putter. I have a mountain of balls to lose before i buy a box
