GEAR | WHAT’S NEW 24 NEW GEAR THE LATEST & GREATEST FROM THE BIGGEST BRANDS CALLAWAY 2018 CHROME SOFT & SOFT X GOLF BALL This Ball is Different! Callaway recently revealed its all-new 2018 Chrome Soft and Chrome Soft X Golf Balls with Dual SoftFastTM cores, featuring space-age graphene—one of the strongest materials in the world. Graphene is tougher than diamond and 200 times stronger than steel. It is believed to be the strongest material in the world. This has added incredible strength to the outer core of both the Chrome Soft and Chrome Soft X Golf Balls, transforming performance from tee to green. In a revolutionary new performance recipe, nano-particles of graphene, in the form of a thin, flat two-dimensional arrangement of carbon atoms in a HEX pattern, have been added to the outer core of each Callaway golf ball as a reinforcing agent. Subsequently, graphene’s strength and flexibility properties have allowed R&D experts to push the limits of compression between the inner and outer cores to new boundaries. The soft inner core now deforms more under larger forces so on impact with a driver, fairway wood or long iron it suppresses spin, translating into explosive speed and longer distance. On shorter shots, the firm graphene-infused outer core helps the ball retain its shape better, generating Tour level spin, perfect for shot-stopping control in and around the green. Chrome Soft Performance Highlights: • Optimised compression, feel and spin profile through the bag. • Maximum dual core compression differential that allows players of all ability to compress the ball on the clubface. • Faster ball speed thanks to a firmer outer core and a new manufacturing method that allows us to get closer to the USGA/R&A speed limit. • Reduced spin without sacrificing ball speed. • Softer sound, whilst maintaining ball compression, thanks to the large inner core. > SHOP THE BIGGEST RANGE | BEST ADVICE | LOWEST PRICE | SHOP 24/7 OR LOCATE A STORE | drummondgolf.com.au The key differentiator between Chrome Soft and Chrome Soft X is feel. Chrome Soft X is focused towards players with higher swing speeds (105mph and above) who seek a slightly firmer feel, whereas the standard Chrome Soft will appeal to a wide spectrum of abilities.
