    Callaway hex chrome

    Was in the pro shop today and the Callaway rep gave me a sleeve to try. This is a direct competitor to Bridgestone B330RX--Wow! Perfect for my swing speed. Anyone else ever tried these?

    Yup. I've had a sleeve of the Chrome and the Black for a bit now. Both are excellent balls IMO and so far seem to fix the one thing I didn't like about the i series (Less hacking of the cover with the Hex's for me so far vs the i's).

    No, I haven't.

    But, it sounds like I'll get some sick deals on i(Z)s soon.

    Mine too if their aim is the B330 RX. That is probably the single best ball I've found for my game. If Callaway comes in cheaper I'm all over it.

    I have not seen nor obviously tried this yet but if it is right there with the B330-RX and Penta TP it sounds like one I need to try.

    Did you actually try it today jschlesi or just guessing that it is perfect for you based on what you see? If you did try it, can you tell us what you typically play and how it compared?

    Same here. I did like the HX Diablo Tour ball as well. But if this is closer to the 330RX at a lower price it will be a winner

    OP says its meant to compete with the B330 RX. Guess we will have to wait and find out when they get released.

    Apparently the Black will be a 5 layer ball. Interesting. Look forward to some info from Callaway or Calloway even.

    Played the hex today and absolutely loved it. It is looong. Feel seems better than the E6. Loved the flight. Really comes off the driver and irons. Looks like Callaway is changing the entire line. No iTours or HXs for next year.

    Would love to try em out. If it's close to the B330 RX must be a good one.
