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.

    • Agreed. This is hard to watch and really boring. Commercials every 2 minutes (thanks, DVR and ff!) Perhaps the last day will be worth watching, with the gold on the line. I would not be surprised if some guy you never heard of takes a medal.  
    • I think it’s even worse than what you describe.   I live in an area where people are cheering that there will be no mask mandates and they like to rub it in peoples faces.   They are literally trying to own people who are taking it seriously.   I mean, people are just disgusting.  I can’t even muster anything in me to feel remotely sorry for people like that, nor have anything to do with them.   I’m sure there were lots of people in generations past who took the easy way out and did the wrong things in prior pandemics and war times, but that’s not terribly easy to find in history books.  Books will be written about how people not only killed themselves, but in their twisted belief that they are “protecting their freedoms” they are stripping them away from others.      I have 2 kids under the age of twelve.   With Delta allowed to become dominant because “people want to live their best life” (at others expense), they now are scared to go back to school (and the idiot system won’t do remote learning this year), won’t be able to travel and see their grandparents* , and can do less than 3 months ago.   Nice job folks.   * their grandparents are total a-holes though, so I won’t shed a tear.
    • Here I am, yesterday, doing the day 11 drill.  This represents my status after about ten minutes or so of doing the drill.  I really like it, and I can see how it will help me get better, and I plan to do this one more regularly.  However, I'm not sure I'm doing it right (similar with the snapping sticks drill, where I was stopping wrong).  There's even a really bad putt in this video that I was tempted to edit out, but decided to leave in (since my bad shots are instructive to how I'm doing it wrong, I think). As for other drills, I'm not sure how many I should be posting videos.  Part of me feels like I'm semi-spamming this thread (and I really should have done these 15-16 months ago). And in looking at my last few videos, including two I sent to Evolvr a week ago, it looks like my tripod gets tilted, I need to figure out what I'm doing wrong there.
    • Saw this interesting drill for encouraging hip rotation by deliberately opening the face in the downswing. Anyone tried this? I’d worried it will develop a bad habit of opening the face at the top of the swing.  
    • "With the delta variant taking off around the U.S., the federal government Tuesday updated its masking guidelines for fully vaccinated people. The new advice is to mask up indoors if you live in a place with "substantial" or "high" coronavirus transmission. (The guidance for people who are unvaccinated remains the same: Always mask up indoors.)" Check your county's transmission rates:   Do You Need To Wear A Mask Indoors Where You Live? Check This Map The CDC wants vaccinated people to wear masks indoors if the coronavirus is spreading widely where they live. Find out the level of virus transmission in your county. And, this was interesting: "A week after the crowds descended upon Provincetown, Massachusetts, to celebrate the Fourth of July -- the holiday President Joe Biden hoped would mark the nation's liberation from COVID-19 -- the manager of the Cape Cod beach town said he was aware of "a handful of positive COVID cases among folks" who spent time there. "We are in touch with the Health Department and Outer Cape Health Services and are closely monitoring the data," Alex Morse told reporters. The announcement wasn't unusual with roughly half of the country still unvaccinated and flare-ups of the virus popping up in various states. But within weeks, health officials seemed to be on to something much bigger. The outbreak quickly grew to the hundreds and most of them appeared to be vaccinated. As of Thursday, 882 people were tied to the Provincetown outbreak. Among those living in Massachusetts, 74% of them were fully immunized, yet officials said the vast majority were also reporting symptoms. Seven people were reported hospitalized. The initial findings of the investigation led by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, seemed to have huge implications. Before Provincetown, health officials had been operating under the assumption that it was extraordinarily rare for a vaccinated person to become infected with the virus. And if they did, they probably wouldn't end up passing it on to others, such as children too young to qualify for the vaccine or people who were medically vulnerable. The idea that vaccines halt transmission of the virus was largely behind the CDC's decision in May suggesting vaccinated people could safely go without their masks indoors and in crowds, even if others were unvaccinated. But that assumption had been based on studies of earlier versions of the virus. Delta was known for its "hyper-transmissibility," or as one former White House adviser put it "COVID on steroids." "What has changed is the virus," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert and Biden's chief medical adviser. When a vaccinated person gets infected with delta -- called a "breakthrough infection" -- "the level of virus in their nasopharynx is about 1,000 times higher than with the alpha variant," Fauci said in an interview Wednesday with MSNBC. All indications now are that the Provincetown outbreak investigation is among the pieces of new evidence behind the CDC's decision to ask Americans to once again put on their masks indoors, even if they are vaccinated."   CDC mask decision followed stunning findings from Cape Cod beach outbreak - ABC News The CDC's mask decision followed stunning findings from a Cape Cod beach outbreak. The viral load of vaccinated beachgoers changed what we know about the delta variant.
