Smart Marketing from Callaway

9 posts in this topic

I went in to Golfsmith to get new grips for my irons today and saw Callaway's new golf ball lineup. In 2013, Callaway had what seemed like 10 different options.

-Hex Chrome+

-Hex Chrome

-Hex Black

-Hex Diablo

-Hex Hot Pro

-Hex Hot

-Hex Warbird

Because of the different names, I wasn't sure what was right for me. I spent more time wondering which ball did what rather than buying. Now Callaway have come out with 3 balls made for anyone

-SR-1 <90 swing speed

-SR-2 90-105 swing speed

-SR-3 >105 swing speed

Wow. That is smart marketing. Much easier on the consumer, and no more wondering what is right for my swing speed. Tour quality ball for any player made that easy.

--If you want to spend that much ($48/dozen).

Looks like they're still producing Hex Warbird, Hex Chrome, Hex Chrome+, X2 Hot, X2 Hot+, and Supersoft balls as well.

Yes, they are offering a pure distance ball (X Hot2+) and their more affordable option for the slow swing speed with the Supersoft. I was pointing at the high end options they have. People spend $45-50/dozen for a Pro V1/Pro V1x, Srixon Z Star, Nike RZN, Bridgestone b-330s, Taylormade Tour Preferred, etc.

With all of these high end choices, what ball is best for me? Callaway made it much more simple, IMO.

:sigh:

Glad to know some people can still read. Or count.

P.S. just because the ball changes colors, doesn't mean it's a different ball. I counted 15 total including the ladies and Strata. Blame it on Obama.

Were you sure to check out their golf balls made specifically for left handed players as well? I didn't include those in my count.

    • I started playing when I was 3 or 4yrs old, I don't really know.  But I was breaking 90 by age 14.  
    • It's fine that he apologized. I think better of him for doing that than had he not. But he's still earned a net negative in this whole thing, and I think he was speaking honestly before. He thinks the USGA is punishing him or something, when they're just enforcing the same old rules.
    • For me the range is about coping with some performance anxiety. I have some serious anxiety and obsessive compulsiveness when it comes to anything competitive. And the range allows me the option to freely express my pursuit of excellence. A lot of the time I prefer the range because I can focus inwardly and really feel different things.     
    • Inferno - Struggled to make par. Hanks kept the story going but they left a lot of the charm of the book out. Manchester By The Sea - Birdie. Excellent acting and the accents were much better than some other Boston movies (I'm talking to you Marky Mark). It is not a feel good movie, just to warn those who have not seen it.
    • Just a Sunday morning commentary about selling used clubs and offered trades.  I currently have a set of irons posted for sale locally. For some reason the PGA ValueGuide shows my clubs a little higher than I would have thought. I've checked at Dick's/GolfGalaxy for trade-in value and get different answers depending upon which store I go to and who I talk with. I suspect the sales people and golf department workers are quoting from either the retail column or trade-in column or wholesale column. In any case their offers don't quite get me where I need to be towards a newer set of clubs.    So recently a local guy offered a Scotty Cameron putter in trade and he referred to the PGA guide to coax me into my clubs plus cash for his putter. I looked up his putter and the valueguide actually shows it slightly less than my clubs, but I suspect an anomoly on my club values. I don't know if he has the head cover for his putter, but I do know that there are too many stolen putters floating around. I'm not saying his putter is stolen, just that when it comes to high demand/priced putters I tend to add caution to my dealings. Anyway, I then looked up reviews on his putter and found one from this site from around 2011 where the general concensus seemed to be marginal or unfavorable for various reasons.    In any case, I passed on the trade offer. But now I'm curious if there is a stolen putter database someplace. And if my clubs don't sell and if I can't get a workable trade-in locally, then I'll just use them this season. Just that sometimes horse-trades get some interesting offers. I recently sold an electric guitar and amp on craigslist and someone offered me a set of china dishes for it, I passed and found a cash buyer, which got me closer to funding new golf clubs.    Anyway, it is Sunday morning, I'm on my first cup of coffee, the local golf show is still a few weeks away, and it snowed yesterday, and in this past week the local temps have hit a high of 71degF and are currently around 19degF. And sometimes I type too much, sorry if I rambled, back to watching a recorded School of Golf and day dreaming of when the local courses open.
