Softer feel than PV1, good "into the wind."
May 3, 2013
These HEX TOUR Black model balls were the first Callaway balls I have purchased. Usually, I play the industry-standard 3 & 4-piece balls from "The Big T," but RBG had such a great deal on these (logo overrun's) that I decided to buy an "Ammo Box" of these, because neither the air nor the grass nor my clubs know the difference between a plain ball and a logo ball. These balls are at least equal to the PV1 in terms of driver distance and spin/control on wedge shots, combined with a seemingly softer feel off the putter.
These balls do well into the wind, and do not "balloon" for me like the PV1x does sometimes......
BTW, I spin all my golf balls and mark the "balance equator." These balls are remarkably consistent when the balance equator is compared to the printed logo......
Pros:Soft feel on putts.
Excellent value ("Ammo Box" purchase).
Good "into the wind" performance.
Cons:Soft cover seems to cut easier than ProV1 -- BUT I chalk this up to an acceptable "trade-off" for the softer putter feel and tour-grade spin.
