Callaway Chrome Soft X
Callaway Chrome Soft X
The new golf ball on the market is the Callaway Chrome Soft X and I think any golfers who are a fan of Callaway golf ball products are going to like the look and feel of this new golf ball, I have tried a few of the new balls with some short irons and also short game chipping and putting to get a feel of the new golf ball.
Even though I didn’t like the look of the new Callaway Chrome Soft X I was quietly surprised by the performance of the ball, you have to bear in mind I have always been a big Titleist golf ball user so I was feeling a little bias towards my preferred ball, however once I got over the way it looked I was very impressed with the new golf ball.
Personally around the green with chipping and putting it felt really nice and sounded nice off of the club and also the putter face, with my mid-iron shots it certainly gave you a feeling of hitting the ball lower but that might have just been the way I was hitting them but it did give that feel of a more penetrating ball flight.
Anyway, Callaway is saying a few things that might entice you to give them a whirl:
1. Increased distance from your longer irons and clubs
2. More control with your shorter irons
3. Lower trajectory and penetrating ball flight
4. Spin regulated for all of your golf clubs
5. More spin on your short iron shots into the green
6. Extraordinary feel around the green
7. Great feeling and sound when putting
I think currently with the winter coming to an end I will hold back on my full judgement of the new Callaway Chrome Soft X until the Spring when I will be able to judge and give the ball a better work out with a full round to see how it performs, however, I will say that it does feel nice and will have a sleeve or two in my golf bag waiting for the better weather to arrive. With the current retail price of approx. £30.00 it might be worth grabbing a few now because we all know golf ball prices, in general, seem to increase in the busier summer months!
