Callaway CXR Power Golf Balls

The CXR Power golf balls from Callaway are aimed at one thing and one thing only – distance. This 2-piece golf ball is designed to be durable and to be hit as far as possible. It’s got power in the name after all.

The HEX Aerodynamics design is built as a distance ball that has a higher launch angle. This higher launch helps golfers get the ball in the air more quickly and produces a better landing angle for stopping balls on the green.

The ionomer cover is there to increase the longevity of the ball and limit any wear throughout a round of golf.

Our Verdict

Having tested these golf balls on the golf course, it’s clear they’re designed for the higher-handicapped golfer, that needs a little extra distance off the tee and from the fairways.

The firmer feel does take a little getting used to and can feel like hitting a pebble at first, but once you understand it and begin to get the feel, it’s not too bad. If you’re looking for a fantastic feel off the face of the club or putter, these are not the balls for you.

Having said that, they don’t feel too bad from around the greens. Although a little bit clicky, the higher launch angle does allow you to get the ball up in the air quicker and stop on the green. But again, if you’re looking for good control with your chips shots, a softer more premium ball is needed.

In terms of price, it’s hard to really complain about the value you’re getting. A dozen of these Callaway balls will cost you in the region of £15 to £25. Personally, I think anything over the £20 mark is a little expensive and you can get a better ball for that price. However, if you’re able to pick them up for £15, at just over £1 a ball, it’s a great ball for value for money.

Overall, the CXR Power Callaway golf balls are a good choice for a lot of golfers. If you’re consistently losing a few balls a round, it begins to add up. So adding a ball that costs this little does make economical sense.

In terms of performance, they do provide a good amount of yardage from the tee, but certainly not “extreme distance” as some retailers seem to claim.

This golf ball is a distance ball that can indeed help with your distance and doesn’t cost you too much. They’re also a premium brand, which can be trusted and that’s more attractive to some golfers.

However, if you’re looking for anything more than that, there’s far better golf balls on the market at a very similar price. The feel off the club is not overly pleasant and they almost jump on chip shots around the greens. Controlling the distance on those chips certainly takes some getting used to, especially if you’re used to using much softer golf balls.

Final Thoughts

That’s it for our look at the Callaway CXR Power golf balls. The CXR Power has a couple of factors that do make it a great choice for some golfers out there.

The price is affordable, so losing a couple a round won’t hurt the bank too much. Plus you get a nice amount of distance from the ball on longer shots.

The Callaway Hex Tour Soft is a similar level ball from Callaway which offers max distance and a slightly softer feel.

If you’re looking for a cheap alternative, why not try the Druids golf ball? Or if you’re after something even cheaper than the CXR Power, have a look at our Slazenger V300 golf balls review for a super-budget golf ball.
