~~Callaway Super Soft Golf Ball Review

by Stogiesnbogies

FYI: I am a senior player with an 85-90 Max swing speed; a 15-17 handicap who plays senior flex shafted clubs. I hit my average drives between 180-200 yards and max out under ideal conditions with a very rare 220 yard "bomb".

Callaway has produced the lowest compression ball on the market here with a 38 rating. In contrast the Wilson Staff Duo, it's nearest competitor has a 43 compression; the Wilson Staff Fifty Elite at 50, while the Titleist DT So/Lo checks in at 72. (FYI: All slower swing players; perhaps the reason that the Pro V1X does nothing for you or me has something to do with its 102 compression rating!)

In addition to it's softest compression which enhances direction and distance (as well as feel off the club) Callaway has produced a soft, responsive cover. The soft core and soft cover combine with HEX aerodynamics to produce a golf ball that reduces spin and adds distance.

I absolutely love this ball as it combines the best aspects of both the Wilson Staff Duo and the Wilson Staff Fifty Elite without any of their liabilities. For example the Callaway Super Soft has great distance like the duo but much better feel off the putter.

I find the super soft to be straighter and consequently a tad longer than the Fifty Elite as well. It performs great around the greens with approach shots that sit and pitches and chips that run true. It feels and sounds great off of all club faces.

It has proven to be quite durable as well as I played 2 full rounds with one ball and it still looks fine; no scuffs, scratches or cuts.

Callaway definitely has a winner here for a large piece of the golfing market- namely seniors, most women and others with slower swing speeds. It is available in white or yellow (I tested white) and is well priced at 18 -20 dollars per dozen much like its market competitors, the Wilson Staff Duo and Titleist DT So/Lo. All good balls but I'm bagging the Callaway Super Softs Now!!

    • I think we are all a bit worried about David in FL.  David, if you're reading this please drop in to say "All is good."
    • The only reason why it wasn't 20+ points for US was Rahm. Go look at SG stats for these teams, then come back and tell me how close they are in skill. Obviously the EU team has talent, but lots of it is waning (I include Rory in this as I don't think we will ever see him in the top 10 on OWGR ever again). Older players have more experience, but are passed their prime when it comes to skill level. The EU team could have definitely played worse. The US team played well, but JT, Spieth and Berger were less than good IMO. If those guys are playing up to their normal standards it could have been worse for EU. This x1000. I don't think Rory will ever play like he used to, and in 2 years he could be in Fowler territory. I know RF was never at that high of a peak, but Rory's current trajectory looks bleak to me. Hovland and Hatton are the only others in the top 20 (owgr) besides Rahm, and while I suspect they will stay there, I don't see any other EU players likely to get in. Fleetwood and Lowry would be the closest or best shots to do it (Fitzpatrick is higher ranked but I don't think that giving up that much off the tee will get him higher on owgr), but I don't have particularly high hopes for either of them, although I like both of them.
    • Yeah, wind was coming strong from left to right and once it got above the tree line it moved over the sand trap and towards that single tree.  So my best estimate was somewhere between those two lines.  The group I was with made me re-tee since they were trying to beat me so I did since I didn't know the rule.  Now I know so that won't happen again.  I won anyway so all good.
