Smart Marketing from Callaway

9 posts in this topic

I went in to Golfsmith to get new grips for my irons today and saw Callaway's new golf ball lineup. In 2013, Callaway had what seemed like 10 different options.

-Hex Chrome+

-Hex Chrome

-Hex Black

-Hex Diablo

-Hex Hot Pro

-Hex Hot

-Hex Warbird

Because of the different names, I wasn't sure what was right for me. I spent more time wondering which ball did what rather than buying. Now Callaway have come out with 3 balls made for anyone

-SR-1 <90 swing speed

-SR-2 90-105 swing speed

-SR-3 >105 swing speed

Wow. That is smart marketing. Much easier on the consumer, and no more wondering what is right for my swing speed. Tour quality ball for any player made that easy.

--If you want to spend that much ($48/dozen).

Looks like they're still producing Hex Warbird, Hex Chrome, Hex Chrome+, X2 Hot, X2 Hot+, and Supersoft balls as well.

Yes, they are offering a pure distance ball (X Hot2+) and their more affordable option for the slow swing speed with the Supersoft. I was pointing at the high end options they have. People spend $45-50/dozen for a Pro V1/Pro V1x, Srixon Z Star, Nike RZN, Bridgestone b-330s, Taylormade Tour Preferred, etc.

With all of these high end choices, what ball is best for me? Callaway made it much more simple, IMO.

:sigh:

Glad to know some people can still read. Or count.

P.S. just because the ball changes colors, doesn't mean it's a different ball. I counted 15 total including the ladies and Strata. Blame it on Obama.

Were you sure to check out their golf balls made specifically for left handed players as well? I didn't include those in my count.

    • What'd You Shoot Today?
      76 today 36 on the front 40 on the back I started off hitting the ball better than I ever had. I didn't miss a fairway until somewhere on the back 9 and the only thing that kept me from going low was not being able to convert on key birdie opportunities. Had a real good look at shooting under par but I let my swing get a little quick on the final holes as I played the closing three at +4. Despite a couple errant tee shots and a 4 -putt (yes, a 4-putt...), this was a pretty clean round for me. I feel good going into a 4 day break.  
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Tiger never got "so big." Have you seen the dude in person? He was not an imposing figure. This is a myth. I get that he can look pretty stacked on TV, but he's not: his shirts were tight, and he was fit, but he wasn't "so big." Like most men, he filled out from the time he was 20 until he was 26, 27…
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Wrong again! I loved Tiger when he was out there dominating the game. He was great for golf, bringing new fans and attention to the sport. I attended the WGC Bridgestone in Akron when Tiger was in his ascendancy. I tried to follow him, but it was impossible! He had to be dragging 10,000 people around the course! But I, like many others, began to wonder when Tiger got so big. Remember when he first came on tour? A skinny string bean with big, thick glasses. When he showed up at Stanford it was his teammate, Notah Begay, who tagged him with the nickname "Urkel"! Even though Woods and Begay became friends, I don't think Tiger liked "Urkel" very much. And it's been reported that Tiger didn't like the idea of golfers not being considered "real" athletes either. So, if Tiger was juicing he never got caught. Neither did Bonds, Sosa or McGwire. There is no proof, but suspicions remain. It's kind of sad to see Tiger in his current state, trying to claw his way back to the tour. No doubt he has enough money to last the rest of his and his kid's lives, but you don't get to where he was unless you are competitive. I think that might be what Tiger misses the most. I just remembered that he named his yacht "Privacy" because, at the time, that is what he craved. Well, he has plenty of it now. Wonder how that's sitting with him?

      Black Mass
      The story about the infamous crime lord Whitey Bulger. It starred Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger. Benedict Cumberbatch played his brother, and US Senator Billy Bulger. This was an enthralling movie to watch. I give it a tap in Birdie. I give Johnny Depp an birdie performance. He was totally convincing playing Whitey Bulger.  Kung Fury
      This is a little gem I found when I was hanging out with my friends just skimming through Netflix. This is a movie that was crowd funded through kickstarter. It has that cheesy 80's action movie coupled with cheesy kung-fu movie feel to it. It just works brilliantly to give you an over the top 30 minutes of enjoyment. I give it an birdie for outstanding exaggerated fun and enjoyment.

      Watching Steph make clutch 3s from mid court routinely must be like watching Spieth putt those 15-20 footers knowly there always a chance goes in no matter how tough the green is
