• Callaway unveils 2017 golf ball line-up – including Chrome Soft X
• The Chrome Soft X offers a softer feel with Tour-level distance
• Also revealed are new and updated Supersoft and Warbird lines
The Callaway Chrome Soft X offers a softer feel with Tour-level distance, workability and control, with that and the Chrome Soft ball sharing the same four-piece construction of:
• Callaway’s innovative two-layer Dual SoftFast Core®
• A spin-regulating SubMantle
• An ultra-soft urethane cover
Both balls also feature the flight-extending HEX aerodynamics.
The differences lie in the Callaway Chrome Soft X’s firmer core and cover combination, promoting more ball speed off the tee, more spin through the bag, and a piercing and workable ball flight.

Greenside control Best Best
Dave Bartels, Callaway’s senior of golf ball R&D, said: “Chrome Soft is designed to promote a high, straight, distance-enhancing trajectory.
“In Chrome Soft X we wanted to create a ball that does everything Chrome Soft does, but with a piercing trajectory and more workable ball flight desired by many Tour Professionals and elite amateurs.”
Current Callaway Chrome Soft staffers include Phil Mickelson, Patrick Reed, Jim Furyk, Danny Willett and Thomas Pieters.
Also new and improved for 2017, the Supersoft ball is Callaway’s softest feeling that dials in super-straight distance.
The company’s lowest compression golf ball, it features a new ultra-low core for faster ball speeds and super-low spin for longer and straighter flights on full shots.
A soft cover and new premium HEX Aerodynamics® help reduce drag and enhance lift, while improved greenside control comes from a new, softer Tri-ionomer™ cover.
Completing the 2017 line-up, the new and improved Warbird is specifically designed for those who want greater distance.
It has a large, soft, highly compressible high-energy core that unlocks astonishing ball speed and, coupled with HEX Aerodynamics®, reduces drag and promotes a high launch.
