  • How much concern should this cause..?

    Yesterday a member of twitter (who shall remain nameless) cut open a Golf ball. Literally right in half......this is what he found.

    (I don’t feel it’s appropriate to link the tweet to this but I will say that he mentioned it was a Callaway Chromesoft Golf ball

    I’m not saying this is an epidemic but it is certainly a problem of quality control for the consumer. Is this the “tip of the iceberg” as he says it might be?

    Curious what everyone else’s thoughts or concerns are? Let’s discuss..

    It was a one off quality control issue. What we don't see is the dozens of balls he did cut that were fine.

    Golf Ball Guts guy said some Callaways are a little off but he has seen nothing like this. He has cut thousands upon thousands of balls as he sells them as markers so I'll take his opinion on this ball stuff more often than not.

      Although this is disheartening, its kinda like buying a car and worrying about it being a lemon as you drive it off the lot. Anytime you mass produce anything, there's a margin of quality loss.

      The cynic in me wonders how many balls he cut in half before he found this one...

        I don't see a reason to be concerned. As others stated above, how many did they cut to find this one? Did they pick a random dozen off a shelf from DSG and do the cuts? I looked at the Twitter link, they did what they wanted and created likes and clicks for there on benefit.
        Driver Maybe something Flash?
        Fairways Some more awesome Flash?
        Irons I have no idea what might go in here!!!
        Wedges probably some MD goodness
        probably something that rolls awesome
        an awesone ball

          I thought that might be the new "Ball For All Swing Speeds" model. Fast guys hit it on one side, slow guys hit it on the other. Or maybe one side fights a slice, the other side fights a hook? So many possibilities!

            Every single one of these companies has an X-ray process that every ball goes through to pick this stuff up. Either their xrays aren’t picking it up or it’s a larger issue.

                Saw the tweet and then several other's who cut open other's that looked just fine. So did they cherry pick the one that was off and not report the other 11? 24? 36? Not much else was said other than *GASP*

                    it’s called a tolerance for a reason. it doesn’t give me any concern whatsoever.

                      Even if they cut into 10-20-30-100 balls. That’s a huge problem regardless of the number.

                        This is why I only play DTC brands. You just cannot trust the name brand market.



                        I'm sure it's a very isolated incident and not an epidemic for Callaway or any manufacturer for that matter.

                          Their answer to how many were cut was "Less than 2", but they don't answer any of the other questions like, "did you cut into others to see if it was an issue?"

                          Suspect at best.

                            I'm sure this is just a random error. I'm sure it happens everywhere and is probably a little more common than they would admit but you wouldn't be able to tell unless you cut it open, which isn't something I'm going to do.

                              Probably an older model made overseas. Might be one of the reasons Callaway has moved all of their manufacturing and assembly to the U.S. For the CS and ERC balls. Finley mentioned something about all of the manufacturing being in the states now in the thread about chromesofts being made overseas.
