Callaway Golf Ball Reviews

By Brad Wilbricht

Since joining the golf ball category, Callaway Golf has established itself as one of the top brands in the industry. It has multiple lines of balls, from the most advanced to more budget options designed to get maximum distance for beginning golfers. The following is a rundown of the current lines of Callaway balls. 

Chrome Soft

This 4-piece ball is one of the balls geared towards better players who want a soft feel. It has a large inner core that allows for maximum compression, meaning more energy transfer to the ball and farther distance. The softness comes from the Tour Urethane cover. This soft material allows golfers to shape their shots. The ball also has some forgiveness built in as they compress more on off-center hits than other harder balls, meaning you still get maximum distance. This are also available in the Truvis pattern, which is a series of red pentagons that make the golf ball look like a miniature soccer ball. The Truvis Pattern is designed to help focus and visibility. 


Chrome Soft X

The Chrome Soft X has many of the same features of the Chrome Soft, including a 4-piece construction and Tour Urethane cover. It has a Graphene-infused Dual Soft Fast Core that allows for maximum distance while minimizing driver spin. The Chrome Soft X is set to be more responsive and is the "tour" model and represents the most advanced ball Callaway makes. This is a ball made for the low handicap golfer and higher handicappers would be better served with a cheaper ball. 



The Superhot is marketed as a distance ball for golfers looking to add yards to their game. It is a 3-piece ball whose aerodynamics are designed to minimize drag with maximum life to keep the ball in flight for as long as possible. Despite being a distance ball, the 3-piece construction and soft cover does give the golfer the ability to shape and add spin to their short game. This ball is good for medium to high handicappers, and is also available in multiple colors. 



The Supersoft is a 2-piece ball with an ionomer cover. Much like the Superhot, the Supersoft is built more for distance in mind than the fancy shot shaping that professionals and other highly skilled golfers can manage. It has the same HEX dimple design as the Chrome Soft and Chrome Soft X and flies exceptionally straight. This is a ball that best serves golfers with slow swing speeds to get maximum distance. Their low price point will also entice occasional players. 



Solaire is Callaway's ball that is targeted directly at women. It is very similar to the Supersoft ball in that it is a 2-piece ball designed primarily for distance. In fact, there is little tru difference between the Solaire and Supersoft that if one ball works for you so will the other. The Solaire does come in a vivid pink color that will be a selling point to some golfers. This ball is best used by golfers with slower swing speeds, regardless of their age or gender.
