About this deal

One of the things we’re looking at is a subscription product for ball reports. The level of detail in those would be greater, and part of what we might include is a per box breakdown. In this case, we had bad balls in each of the three boxes, though I believe they were slightly more prevalent in one for the boxes. While Chrome Soft X shared many of the same issues as Chrome Soft, perhaps its biggest liability in the market was that it wasn’t different enough from Chrome Soft. In a world of Pro V1x and TP5x and ZStar XV, Chrome Soft X didn’t compete. It has never been what golfers expect an X ball to be. It’s why Toulon says Callaway has under-indexed in sales of Chrome Soft X. That’s industry-speak for we don’t sell as many as we’d like. This new design also boasts a new Tour Aero dimple design to provide powerful ball flight and lower drag for greater overall distance.

This is why the quality and consistency aspect is so important. If you have two balls with similar performance specs (and in the market you’ll find several options for any given spec), the bigger difference is going to be found in how often a given manufacturer is able to achieve that spec (our consistency metrics), and how often what we classify as a bad ball makes it to a store shelf. No matter what the spec of the ball is supposed to be, if it can’t be delivered consistently than, much like mamma’s box of chocolates, you don’t actually know what you’re going to get (from one ball to the next). Regarding point 1. Yes, the equipment used was different. The native scale is a bit different and the conversions, from what we can tell anyway, aren’t perfect. We find that our machine is generally close to manufacturer’s stated numbers. What I can say is that manufacturers are working to quantify this in absolute terms along the lines of “If a core is x mm off-center, it can be expected to fly x-yards offline at 150 MPH speed”…something like that anyway.

In July 2023, Neil became just the 9th editor in Golf Monthly's 112-year history. Originally working with the best coaches in the UK to produce instruction content, he has also presented many Golf Monthly videos looking at all areas of the game from Tour player interviews to the rules of golf. It’s amazing isn’t it? People won’t take the time actually read an article and get all the facts, they look at a couple charts or pictures and make incorrect or at best incomplete statements based on that.

It’s an approach that isn’t without risk as it doesn’t leave much room for error. In the case of our sample, a single ball failed our diameter test (frankly, it wasn’t close). Consequently, it was flagged as bad.

The True Price will always be equal to or greater than the retail price. The greater the difference between the retail price and the True Price, the more you should be concerned about the quality of the ball. I am with ya. I walked away from Cally ever since bunch of faulty balls found. Is this what we get after 50M investment? this is a joke. what does Cally think of us? Fools? If I understand the data correctly, basically two balls per dozen should not be played.. The problem is , which two.
