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.

    • I still remember my first couple of rounds playing strokeplay from the backtees on my home course. Because I went down to under hcp 15 I had to play in cat1 group, before that I only played Stableford from the medal tees. First couple of times 100+ scores as a hcp 14. I even got so fed up with this strokeplay, I picked up a couple of times. It took me two handfull of rounds to get used to it. later I played as a single digit player twice a strokeplay tournament on a nice but to me unknown course and scored both times 103. This year I will play it for the third time, to break that record. Strokeplay, no esc will get into his head. I would bet on it.
    • Obviously keeping your left leg flexed longer is the key.  For me, the problem has been straightening the right leg, but in theory any straightening that lifts you away from the ball is not good. What I have started doing is not flexing my knees that much when setting up.  They are not locked, but they are pretty straight.  I've never done this before but it has helped to keep me balanced and not do the lift-down-lift move.  My head doesn't move as much and I can lift my left heel on the backswing without lifting my upper body.  I also feel that I'm not fighting as much to get to the left side.  I'm getting more consistent contact and it seems to be easier on my body. I have no idea if it will help you at all and I'm just throwing it out in case you can't use a drill to fix your issue. John  
    • Hi guys been having trouble with my account or I wouldn't be so spotty... Anyways I been looking to upgrade my entire bag and am slowly but surely. I just ordered my new irons 716 AP1 and can't be more excited. I was just wondering what you guys thought on how hard it's going to be to adjust to them coming from TM Burner plus irons. I'm sure they will be a half to a full club longer due the stronger lofts, but how much more forgiving could they be. I really hope the long irons will be a tad bit easier to hit than mine currently are. Thanks for any and all feedback and remember the goal is to keep it in the short grass lol 
    • I love grilling steaks. I've cooked them caveman style right on the charcoal, a grate over my chimney starter, reverse sear, 700* grill, you name it I've done it. I haven't tried the sous vide method yet, but it's similar to a reverse sear in the oven then 30 seconds on a hot grill grate. My favorite cut is a big 3lb cowboy ribeye. I'll eat a filet at a steakhouse, but the ribeye is king when I'm grilling at home. 
    • 5/24:  Another rainy day (and my yard is soaked), so kept it light, and indoors.  Looks good to play tomorrow, finally, though.
      5 mins. wall drill indoors, no club; focus on keeping backside into wall through impact
      A couple of mins. in front of mirror; focused on checkups for setup position, then at each position through impact
