Has anyone played the new Callaway and have any opinion if it's better than the DT Solo. Thanks, for any feedback in advance. Lefty Lar

I myself have not played it ... and, in fact, haven't played the DT Solo yet either.  But here is a fairly recent review from another member on them: http://thesandtrap.com/products/callaway-super-soft-golf-ball/reviews/4845 He seems to like them. ;)

I will say, though, that its hard for anybody to call any ball "better" than another.  They, like putters, are really more about personal preference.  You kinda gotta try it out and see how it feels, ya know??

Please read my review posted here of the Callaway Super Soft.....having played the So/Lo for some years as my go-to ball, I now give the nod to Callaway Super Soft-especially for those of us, like myself, with slower swing speeds.

Here's the link to my review here on TST website:

cheers.

GolfingDad,  You say: " You kinda gotta try it out and see how it feels, ya know??"

I agree entirely....but garnering a consensus -especially from fellow golfers with similar swing speeds can be informative and lead to more discerning purchases....as the author of the Super Soft Review I am comparing my experience with that of the So/Lo, as well as Wilson Duo and Fifty Elite and found that the Cally performs best all around.....as they say results may vary ...but if you search reviews of the Super soft across the internet you will, indeed be hard pressed to find a negative word -at least from those whose swing speed actually fits this ball.....info worth knowing as you begin stocking up on balls for the coming season....cheers

Of course ... that's why I linked your review. ;)

It also helps a lot that you also happen to know exactly how it compares to the Solo :beer:

Thanks  golfingdad.

Hope that my review might help some people make a somewhat more informed decision as they set out to the golf shop to stock up on golf balls for the new season.

I recommend that if one hasn't tried these various balls perhaps try to buy a sleeve of each and play them against each other in order to determine which best fits your game:  Callaway Super Soft (38 Compression), Wilson Staff Fifty Elite(50 compression) , Wilson Staff Duo( 40 compression) and Titleist DT So/Lo (FYI: So/Lo has the highest compression at 80 but its an excellent ball tee to green -again in the 20 dollar per dozen range.)

cheers.

    • Probably had my best shot of the week/month/year/life today. I was hitting block fades with driver all day today (well each of the 5 times I hit driver anyways), so on #18, I predictably hit a block fade over the trees on the right of the hole onto an adjacent fairway. If you hit the ball far enough to get past the trees, you have an unobstructed approach to the green, but the green becomes shorter front to back than if you are in the right fairway due to the bad angle. I was about 135 yards to the hole, slightly uphill (I could see the top half of the pin). Without my PW I had to hit a partial 9-iron. I flushed it and the flight of the ball never left the flag. I almost wanted to do a Tiger club twirl and start confidently stalking after the ball. I saw it hop once and then lost sight of the ball behind some mounds. Walked up to the green and saw my ball peaking out of the cup atop the pool noodle. Pitch mark was about 8 feet from the hole. First eagle since I was in college 20+ years ago.
    • 97, 51/46 with a 10 on a par five on the front (3 water balls). First time playing this course, Maccasin Run in PA. Beautiful track. Absolutely pristine.  Grass everywhere even in the rough. Leaves cleared off. Tightly mown. No excusses for hitting a bad shot.  Weather low 50s with a slight breeze.  
    • Shot an 86 today, with 13 GIR/nGIR, 29 putts, and 2 penalty strokes. Only carried 8 clubs today (Driver, 3-hybrid, 5/7/9-iron, 50/60 degree wedge, putter), so hit a lot of partial shots, which I enjoyed. Overall golf was very solid, but I had two bad holes where I was +7. First one was on #1, where I blocked my drive down the right side, bounced off a cart path into the ether, so dropped with a 2 stroke penalty. Then my approach (4th stroke) got rejected by a branch, and 5th shot was over the green. Pitch on and 2 putts for an 8 (+4). Second one was on the par-3 7th. Another block, this time with 5-iron, also caught a cart path and bounced about 30 yards past the green. Rushed my 2nd shot since I was standing in the playing line of golfers on another hole and came up well short. Another pitch landed short, and finally a pitch onto the green and 2 putts for a 6 (+3). Finished the round with a hole out for eagle on the 18th which made the round very satisfying overall.
    • Holed out an approach for eagle in today’s round. I think it’s been over 22 years since my previous (and only other) eagle.
    • Day 352 Played 18 today. Really stiff and sore from painting and moving furniture around all weekend, so only carried 8 clubs. Focused on good takeaway/backswing and tempo. Played pretty well, except for 2 holes where I was +7.
