Cons: Poor cover construction

I purchased a dozen of the Hex Black from my local golf retailer and I'm going to return them without even teeing one up.  The reason is the shoddy construction of the cover.

 

I got these b/c they're on sale for $27.30 since Els won the Open so I couldn't resist.  Maybe Callaway is rushing the production process to meet demand since the price is so low, but you can see the defects as soon as you take them out of the box.

 

Specifically, the hex pattern around the Callaway logo has "cuts" in it in the shape of the hexagon.  It's almost as though someone took a razor blade and made small slices in the cover.  I have played several dozen of the Tour i(s) and have never seen this type of defect before. 

 

It may not affect the performance of the ball, but it leads me to question the quality of the construction of the parts I can't see.  I'm returning them.....

Callaway Hex Black Tour Golf Ball (12 Pack)
Description:

Tour Distance or Tour Spin. That’s the decision golfers have been forced to make. Well, not anymore. This singular Tour golf ball strikes the perfect performance balance for both the distance-seeker and the control freak. "i-Core™ Technology • The combination of the soft inner core and firm outer core provides the optimal spin separation from tee to green to optimize the balance of both distance and control • Longer distance off the driver and long irons due to lower spin generated by the soft inner core. The spin increases closer to the green due to the firm outer core, culminating with higher spin off wedges for total control and aggressive stopping power • The largest inner-to-outer core compression differential ever in a Callaway golf ball for low spin off the driver and higher spin with wedges" "DuraSpin™ Cover • A proprietary formulation that yields the soft feel and exceptional short-game spin skilled players seek in a Tour golf ball • Significantly improves durability " "Dual Mantle • The combination of a firmer outer mantle and softer inner mantle help reduce driver spin and provide additional resiliency, allowing the dual core to unleash powerful ball speeds • Provides an extra layer of protection around the dual core, allowing our engineers the design freedom to take performance to an all-new level " "New HEX Aerodynamics™ • Refined pattern provides the best aerodynamic performance ever in a Callaway golf ball, reducing drag and promoting a stable, penetrating ball flight that holds its line in the wind"
