Hearing Callaway is coming out with a new ball for 2017. I think its a Chrome Soft 2017. Does anyone know if they are changing it or just changing the date ? Im happy with that ball now , i think its the best ball ever actually. I hope they dont ruin it by trying to make it better

I think one of the models they are coming out with is a Callaway Chrome Soft X which is probably a little firmer ball. I guess sort or like the Pro V1 and the Pro v1X. Not sure what else they are doing with the ball. I know the last half dozen years or so when I find a ball I like that company comes out with a new and improved version which does not suit my swing. Hope this is not the same thing with Callaway with the Chrome Soft.

The Chrome Soft 16' ball has honestly changed my game ! When the Chrome Soft 15' came out i liked it but the new dual core 16' ball is even better. Im not long off the tee anyway so the "softer " feel doesnt affect me there. In fact, it springs off my driver and might give me an extra few yards. The 16' ball is so good from 130 and in that i have that "feel"thing. Its hard for me to describe but a ProV1x feels like a rock to me now. If Callaway carries both balls like Titleist does with the 1 and 1x , then thats great. If they were to stop making this current Chrome Soft I would be in trouble. Thats how much its in my head now. I just hope Phil and Henrik and all the Callaway staffers vote to keep it. Watch, after all this worrying about the "X" ball coming I will like it .HAHA. Im just a "GOLFHEAD" and dont like fixing what isnt broken. Hit Em Good Yall !

Agree w other posters. I hope the ball doesn't change too much. Loved the '16 version and my 130 and in game changed so much and I hit a lot more quality shots when I switched to the chrome soft.

My pro is a Callaway guy and he gave me a dozen of the new Chrome Soft X to try, has anyone tried these yet?  

Played with them yesterday. Felt firmer, which I liked. The regular CS felt too soft to me. I thought the CS felt weird putting. The x felt solid, and made a nice click. I compared it with a Bridgestone RX, and a Snell MTB. Felt more like the Bridgestone. A bit firmer than the MTB. I thought it went similar distances as the other balls. I liked it much better than the CS just based on the feel.

I was using the Supersoft and finally bought the Chrome Soft. The CS goes farther than the SS for me. Now I have all these CS saved up for when I run out of the SS but don't want to play the SS knowing I can be getting more distance by using the other ball. Maybe I'll put them in my shag bag. Love the CS, great distance and good feel to boot.

    • You can do a lot with resistance bands. This trainer has free eBooks you can review. Golf Fitness Training | Joey D Golf Golf fitness training isn't just about 'working out' for golf. We optimize your body with exercises and workout programs built for you. I am your age. And while weight training can help a lot, you can also get similar benefits from resistance bands and body weight work. I do squats, but single leg squats. I use the bands to add resistance. I also use them for core work. This site sells a lot of the resistance band gear. SKLZ | SKLZ Explore SKLZ I did a review of this program below. SKLZ doesn’t sell it anymore, but there are others out there. https://thesandtrap.com/b/training/sklz_golf_strong_video_program_review  
    • I just looked at my latest swing videos. I do a bit of a waggle and a maybe three count. With the driver, I lift the head and put it right behind where I want to make contact. With irons and woods I tap down then lift slightly then take back. I also try to lower myself to the ball with my legs instead of reaching or pushing down with my arms.

    • Notice how quickly that right elbow bends? (That’s still way better but you can be wider.)
