I will also add that the CS seems to spin more for me, but not in a way that seems to rob me of any distance. The amount of bite in the short game is really impressive. Really can't wait to see how aggressive I can get once I am playing again.

Unfortunately local shop has not received their shipment. Ordered a couple dozen on Callaway’s website, but availability listed as 1-2 weeks.

What major differences did you see aside from feel?

In terms of ball flight, not much. I was seeing my typical launch window. But, I have never really played a tour ball that stood out to me as drastically different in terms of flight either. A lot more stopping power on the greens though. I have only played them at the Hideaway over 3 months ago, so it's not fresh on my mind. But, I spun the ball back like mad. With that said, for the amount of spin you get with wedges, they are incredibly durable.

You bought me a dozen Truvis too?!? :love::cool::LOL:

If these disappear from your bag when we play next, do not suspect me. I am innocent but I bet the thief will replace them with something great, like Top Flights so don't worry about it. :sneaky:

how did it go?
Delayed. Only short game practice which went really well. While in Hammock Dunes area, I did not golf, but went to range twice and short game area once.

This ball will surprise a lot of people. As someone who has played the previous version of the CS, the 2020 CS is better in every regard. I found that it was slightly longer, held up in the wind better, but where it shines is with spin. The previous version didn't spin as much as I would have liked, but that is fixed with this one. I came away really impressed how on longer irons or scoring clubs the ball didnt roll out much from it's mark. With wedges and closer shots, the ball even spun back a little and I didn't see that with the previous version.

I can't wait to get a full season under my belt with this ball to get more long term thoughts.

I was in a hurry and didn’t want to disturb him. Or you could just send me one of your yellow TTs! :ROFLMAO:

Interesting. And this compared to the CSX?

Sorry, no, in comparison with the last chrome soft. I didn't get along real well with the last CSX.

Gotcha. Yeah I'm seeing the same. Great performance into the wind. More spin around the greens and just seems to be a little longer off the tee.

I put the regular Chrome Soft in play today for 18 holes. I had a tired swing and was not compressing the ball real well, but the ball felt like a Chrome Soft. The greens were I played were really spongy and dormant, so it was tough to gauge anything, but every iron that hit a green sat right down next to the ball mark. Right now, I don’t feel like there is much difference in playing characteristics between this ball and the Bridgestone B RX that has had my fancy. Another round or and some short game practice should reveal more.

Love me some discounts! Stopled by local Golf Galaxy today and picked up a dozen with TT even though I already had a sleeve testing from @dacatalyst41. More info to come.

For those that use the TT, do yall find any difference between the yellow and white balls, are the yellows a little more distracting when putting with the TT, i don't know if that makes sense or not what im asking haha

I have not noticed a difference really.
But I do prefer the white.
