I am a big alignment person, so the triple track was my preferred choice and the selector tool picked it for me. Perfect match with the x too!Screenshot_20210414-194829_Chrome.jpg

Initial pick was CS X LS been seeing a lot of social media posts about Cally guys getting increased distance and lower scores - so very intriguing.

was fit into these though - love the X and the TT is the best alignment aid out there IMO so, can’t be disappointed, great fitting tool too

Saving this spot for after my ball selector.

If it were me choosing w/o any help, I would go the OG ChromeSoft. No X, no LS. Now let's see what the ball selector recommends.... :cool:

Edit: Man, do I know myself or do I know myself.

My guess guess was the basic Chrome Soft due to my high handicap.

Here's what the selector said.

I would have chosen the Chrome Soft X, but the online selector recommended the regular Chrome Soft

I assume it will choose the Chrome Soft X ball for me. I would def go yellow triple track in the event if the Golf Gods were to bestow such an honor upon me...


Below is what the ball selector offered for me: Yahtzee!

Been playing Chrome Soft and Chrome Soft Triple Track for some time. The selection tool confirmed the best fit to my playing choice.

I thought I would play the Chrome Soft X

Selector put me in the Chrome Soft.

Thank you for the opportunity. Good luck, everyone.

I think I would play the Chromesoft X and

that's what it selected for me. I tried them pretty early but have limited experience with them. Might have to give them another go.

Good luck all!

Before the online selector, I was thinking the X would be the one that would show up.

But you cannot mess with an OG!!



I mean it is The ball which changed the ball

Given the options available I selected Chrome Soft
The ball selector picked Chrome Soft Magna as my first selection and Chrome Soft as the second selection

I predicted Chrome Soft and I was correct. I like a ball that has good green side control, excellent distance and is workable as i control trajectory a lot. I don’t have the swingspeed for the X so I knew the Chrome Soft was going to be the ball that came up.

I have been playing this ball a bit this spring and have had good results with the ball.

I just bought a box of the Chrome Soft when I was at Lake Buena Vista last month and I played one of my best rounds. Maybe the Mickey logo was good luck. 😃

The Callaway ball selector seemed to agree, but without the Mickey logo.

Anyone else having issues getting past the handicap/avg score screen using their phone browser?
Yeah. I just jumped on a computer.

having played both 2020 CS and CSX, my personal preference is the CSX...but the selector feels otherwise:

Based on what I know about my game and the numbers my swing produces, I would have selected the Chrome Soft X LS as my ball of choice. When I entered everything into Callaway’s ball selector this was the result:

I have played the Chrome Soft ball with success in the past, so the selector ended up spitting out a decent ball choice for me.

I would continue to play the best ball on the planet. Chrome Soft.
And Callaway agrees with me.

I recently picked up a box of chrome soft balls after listening to Dan and Finley talk on the podcast and have now played 2 rounds with them. As luck would have it the selector tool confirmed my choice ADAF11C1-29ED-4001-A2E6-F96E03DEAA8F.png

Chrome Soft was my pick and the selector agreed

The entertaining part was the 2nd and 3rd selection - Chrome Soft Triple Track and Chrome Soft Yellow Triple Track (i thought it might drop in the ERC)
