Callaway has combined its lowest compression golf ball with a soft cover and HEX Aerodynamics to introduce its SuperSoft for long, straight distance with softness.
The 38 compression ball is designed to reduce spin to increase distance and enhance straight shots.
“SuperSoft is engineered with an incredibly soft core, actually zero on the PGA compression scale,” said Dave Bartels, senior director of golf ball R&D.
“It’s easy to make a soft core, but it’s really difficult to make a soft core that is resilient, and we were able to do that with SuperSoft,” he added.
“Because the soft core is so resilient, it enables us to put a soft cover on it and still achieve really good ball speeds. The soft cover is great for feel and control around the green as well,” said Bartels.
“SuperSoft has a very soft cover over an extremely soft core that results in a ball that is only 38 compression points. That’s a full 20 points softer than HEX Diablo, one of our popular two-piece balls,” he said.
“When it comes to accuracy, SuperSoft may be the best ball on the market. It reduces hooks and slices so more golfers can get more distance and tighter dispersion,” said Bartels.
The two-piece ball has a polybutadiene core material and a trionomer blend cover material. A pattern of 332 geometries make up the HEX Aerodynamic technology that offers 100 per cent surface area coverage.
