REVIEW: Callaway 2018 Chrome Soft and X Golf Balls
For me what really matters with a golf ball is how it performs with scoring clubs. Yes, off the tee I want performance and this ball has it. The New Callaway Chrome Soft golf balls may also surprise you with it’s short game performance. My experience with prior versions of the Chrome Soft was not the best. The ball had a mushy feel and was inconsistent in spin and distance control. The New version is not that! The feel is solid, due to Graphene in the outer core level. It felt and sounded great off any club, but I especially liked how they were in the short game clubs.
The true measure of any equipment is how it performs. I was fortunate enough to start playing the prototypes before the snow closed the courses around me, but I also got an additional 6 rounds outside in warm sunny weather. I really like how the ball would hold its flight. The dispersion on shots was much tighter than I had been getting. I noticed a gain in distance on clubs like the driver and control with irons and wedges. The new versions of the Chrome Soft with Graphene will be a ball worth trying and buying.

Graphene is a game changer; it also might just be a gamer changer. This ball is going to surprise some people how good it is, especially the Chrome Soft. The ability to manipulate the weighting, maintain a soft feel and increase tour performance levels makes this a must try ball for 2018. It’s kind of a bummer that the price had to go up $5 because of the new materials, but it still falls right in line with other tour balls. Callaway’s new golf balls have some super cool nano-technology materials and great tour performance.
