T HE choice between lowering spin with the longer clubs and raising it at the other end of the bag is the common trade-off facing golf ball designers. To deliver both and improve the overall performance of its Chrome Soft and Chrome Soft X, while maintaining soft feel, Callaway has incorporated a material that is 200 times stronger than steel, known as graphene. Nano-particles of the material are included in the outer core of the new models’ ‘Dual SoftFast’ cores to allow Callaway to increase the differential in compression between the two cores. Due to graphene’s strength and flexibility the inner core is now able to be softer and deforms more when struck with drivers, fairway woods and long irons, lowering spin for increased distance. While the outer core’s increase in firmness means it maintains the ball’s shape more effectively on short games shots for increased spin and control. A new, softer urethane cover improves feel and also benefits from the company’s use of the new material, gripping the outer core for further increases in spin when approaching the green. Chrome Soft X is geared towards players who possess higher swing speeds and prefer a firmer feel, whereas Chrome Soft offers the straightest flight and softest feel of the two.
