Callaway Hex Chrome BallCallaway Golf Company (NYSE: ELY) has announced its Callaway HEX Chrome+ golf ball, a Tour performance golf ball that delivers high ball speeds for maximum distance at mid to high clubhead speeds, especially with the driver. HEX Chrome+ is Callaway’s latest offering in the HEX Chrome family of balls, a version of which was already put in play on the PGA Tour earlier this month by long-bomber Gary Woodland. This new ball’s dual mantle unlocks distance by increasing speed and minimizing spin off the tee, while the soft TPU cover promotes Tour-level control and feel in this powerful 4-piece performance ball.

“HEX Chrome+ is hands down the fastest Tour Ball we’ve ever designed at Callaway,” said Dave Bartels, Senior Director, Golf Ball R&D, Callaway Golf Company. “This new 4-piece construction has a single-piece core and dual-mantle system that were designed in unison to create more ball speed with the longer clubs without generating excessive spin, leading to longer distance.

“However, what makes the distance of this ball special is that is achieves that distance and features a soft DuraSpin cover,” continued Bartels. “This urethane cover material not only has great durability, but provides exceptional ‘Tour-level’ control around the green that the best players in the world demand in a premium ball.”

The Callaway HEX Chrome+ golf ball will be available for a new product introduction retail price of $35.99 (US).
