Differences between Callaway Hex Chrome, Hex Hot Pro and Hex Hot

5 posts in this topic

I used to game the Chrome which I loved but couldn't justify the cost with how many I was losing so I switched to the Taylormade TP3 which is now discontinued. I was just looking and saw Callaway now has Hex Hot and Hex Hot Pro which are a bit cheaper than the Chrome but still 3 piece balls. I know the hots are not a urethane cover but is that a big difference? Other than that how different would they play?

The difference between the three is what the cover is made out of. The Chrome has the softer urethane cover whereas the other two don't. The Hot and Hot pro are pretty similar but have different core materials.

If you liked the Chrome and are looking for an alternative, I'd suggest the Callaway HEX Pro. It's a 4 piece ball with the same urethane cover as on the Black and Chrome+. It also uses the same materials for the mantel and core layers as those balls, just different thicknesses. The only downside, if it even is one, is that they are only available at Costco. They are $24/dozen and from my limited testing play as well as the HEX Black.

Here are the specs on the HEX Pro:

I was looking at the Hex Pro also just not sure if I can get to Costco anytime soon.  I have a golf trip down to Ocean City Maryland next Thursday so I need to pick up some balls this weekend for that trip.   I noticed Golfsmith was running a sale on the HX Bite balls with 2 dozen for $30.  Anyone have any experience with them?  I noticed they're also a 3piece ball.

Have a go with these if you are not a high speed swinger: HEX Chrome at $30.

I think the HX Bite is not a urethane cover ball.

    • Finding Value in The Used Club Market
      I'm liking this:   That makes a lot of sense.  Local Retailers may be getting some of the last years models dumped on them when the new clubs start cycling through.  I was thinking about doing the demo days thing to get a taste of what is out there.  The R7 limited and R11 Taylormade Drivers were good to me.  I think a X2 hot/Big Bertha/etc/ect would probably be more forgiving.  Still, I look at the clubs of old... the Cleveland Launcher Comp / Callaway Hawkeye and think: "If I can buy that club for $20... and I can buy newer (used) for $50-$100... hmmm.  Spinning the wheels.  Thanks for the advice though I really appreciate it. If anyone has a Driver / had a Driver they loved from (2009-2014) let me know about it!  What did you like/didn't like?
    • My ex-home courses closing, changing - proofs that golf is in decline
      I just found out that my ex-home course, Sunol Valley Golf course, went out of business last month.  I played 2 - 3 times a week for 2 years not too long ago.  The course was done in by shrinking golfers, and 500% increase in water cost in the last 4 years of CA drought.  They could not make money.   Another ex-home course is now doing business as a golf and foot golf (soccer golf) course.  Golfing customers were not enough. Another course nearby (Santa Clara Tennis and Golf Club) is going to turn into a parking lot for a recently built football stadium. It is sad that despite improved economy in Bay Area, CA, golf business is in decline.  They have been in decline since 1990s but most of the courses around here survived 2008-9 recession.  The current drought and the resulting water cost going through the roof appears to be the final nail in the coffin for the weaker courses.   Sad.
    • Injury Question
      I didn't play golf for about 11 weeks due to it being difficult to play with work after day light savings time fell back.  Now, from the sounds of it, I played through the majority of the repair time as I walked 9 holes 4-5 times a week with 1 day of walking 18 for 7-9 weeks after the injury....I know, I'm an idiot. As it stands now I don't really notice it 90% of the time, its just something that pops up on a swing every now and then.  From the sounds of your healing time, I may have caused it to heal improperly leaving me with a hitch....  If I really just need to not do anything and it'll heal over time then I'd gladly do it, kicking and screaming the entire way as I already had a plan in place to push my handicap into the single digits by years end. I don't like the sound of having something happen as "I get older," I'm only 26 damn it .
    • Injury Question
      I had this injury last spring/summer. You have pulled your intercostal muscles in your ribs. It is a nasty injury which requires a lot of downtime (4-6 weeks minimum more like 8 weeks) to let them repair. It happens as we get older. You need to research ways to heal and take time off from doing those motions such as winding up and releasing. It took 4 months to completely heal and that included lots of ibuprofen as an anti inflammatory and stretching. Take the time off to stop the inflamation or it won't go away and could take longer to heal. It is a difficult process that takes time and when you first feel like you are okay you are more than likely to re injure and make it as bad or worse. You just have to take your medicine or that painful stitch won't go away.
