36 Balls- Callaway Chrome Soft X Balls 2017- 3 Boxes
Make no mistake the X isn’t just another golf ball. The X’s dual core compression has risen from 41 (with Chrome Soft 16) to 72 which is huge. An overall compression rise from 75 (with Chrome Soft 16) to 90 is also significant. It all means a slightly firmer feel across the board, but with tour-level performance.
Enhanced aerodynamics and lower flight
Callaway have re-tooled the cover of the X because of its construction method, and they’ve taken the opportunity to refine the dimple pattern to deliver a lower more penetrating flight which they say better players desire.
Extra ball speed
By controlling the deformation of the ball at very high swing speeds the X loses less energy. Which ultimately means more power off the club face and extra ball speed.
If you’re already playing an X-style golf ball, Callaway reckon their new Chrome Soft X not only offers superior across the board performance but also feel softer too.
Callaway say some of their tour stars couldn’t spin the original Chrome Soft enough to work the ball in the shape they wanted. So the X offers extra spin throughout the bag, yet greenside control is very much like the Chrome Soft.
Just like the Chrome Soft and most other premium tour balls the X runs to 4 layers. A dual core, mantle layer and cover are all tuned to perform at high swing speeds
