Callaway introduces Hex Chrome+ balls

RSS

Callaway has added to its lineup of premium golf balls with the new Hex Chrome+. Introduced this spring and put immediately into play on the PGA Tour by big-hitting Gary Woodland, it is a four-piece product designed to deliver maximum distance at mid- to high-clubhead speeds, especially with the driver. It also offers Tour-level control and feel on shots around the greens.

“This is hands down the fastest Tour ball we’ve ever designed,” said Dave Bartels, senior director of golf ball research and development at Callaway. He went on to say that the four-piece construction utilizes an extremely resilient core and dual mantle system that creates more ball speed off shots over a wide range of clubs and swing speeds without generating excessive spin, leading to longer distance.

At the same time, Hex Chrome+ features a cover that Bartels says is as soft as it is durable. Made of proprietary TPU (thermoplastic urethane) blend, it is made to promote exceptional control on approaches, chips and pitches. And a refined dimple pattern is designed to reduce drag and promote a stable, penetrating ball flight that holds its line in the wind.
