Callaway Golf Ball Review

By Mike Camunas

The ball also uses a Reaction Injection Molding (RIM) to coat the ball, giving it a razor-thin cover.
Specs

The Callaway Warbird Plus is part of Callaway's HEX Aerodymics ball line. It has a seamless cover and 332 hexagon-shaped dimples, which are actually pocked a tiny bit deeper than the average ball. The hexagon design adds six depressions for a sharp, tour-type trajectory. The cover is pure, soft lonomer, and the ball also has a high resiliency, polybutadiene rubber core. The line of the ball is marked with the word "Warbird" and underlined. The ball is available in a 12-pack at about $22 (as of August 2009).

Perks

The HEX Aerodynamics will reduce drag for a long ball flight and stability, and though it eliminates the seam, it helps with shot-to-shot consistency.The ball also uses a Reaction Injection Molding (RIM) to coat the ball, giving it a razor-thin cover that provides distance off the tee and spin on the short game.

Sacrifices

Though the Warbird and its HEX Aerodynamics help the ball go against the wind for a straighter ball flight, it sails higher than softer balls, similar to most distance balls. The ball can create spin, so when landing, it can take a few different bounces than most balls. Generally, the balls bounce to the right on draws and to the left on fades.

Bottom Line

This is the cheapest ball Callaway offers, but it doesn't skimp on quality. It's a ball for the above-average golfer looking for plenty of distance off the tee and plenty of feel in the short game.
