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

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
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?

I typically find HEX Chromes at $31/dz

HEX Black - 5 piece ball, urethane cover - http://www.callawaygolf.com/global/en-us/golf-equipment/golf-balls/hex-black-tour-golf-ball/specs.html

HEX Chrome+ - 4 piece ball, urethane cover - http://www.callawaygolf.com/global/en-us/golf-equipment/golf-balls/hex-chrome-plus-golf-ball/specs.html

HEX Chrome - 3 piece ball, urethane cover - http://www.callawaygolf.com/global/en-us/golf-equipment/golf-balls/hex-chrome-golf-ball/specs.html

HEX Hot Pro - 3 piece ball, trionomer cover - http://www.callawaygolf.com/global/en-us/golf-equipment/golf-balls/hex-hot-*********-ball/specs.html

HEX Hot - 3 piece ball, trionomer cover - http://www.callawaygolf.com/global/en-us/golf-equipment/golf-balls/hex-hot-golf-ball/specs.html

 

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.
