Callaway Supersoft Golf Balls

The Callaway Supersoft golf ball is designed to offer maximum length, with excellent greenside control and spin.

The golf ball features a HyperElastic SoftFast Core built to provide the best ball speed possible with a better flight. A Soft Compression core helps to increase ball speed off the clubface, particularly on slower swing speeds.

The new Hybrid cover is made with feel and spin in mind, without having to compromise on distance from the tee and into the greens. The new model of ball has a much softer feel than previously and gives golfers greater control over all types of shots.

The cover also features the classic HEX Aerodynamic dimples, which help reduce drag in the air and offers greater carry. The Callaway Supersoft two-piece ball also comes in a choice of colours: White, Yellow, Green, Red, Pink and Orange, plus a choice of matte golf balls.

Our Verdict

Having taken the Callaway Supersoft ball out for a spin on the golf course, there’s clearly a lot to be liked about this mid-range option.

The name “supersoft” would suggest that it’s as soft as the more premium golf balls such as a Pro V1 or TP5.

Let’s get something clear from the start, this is not a ball which is “supersoft”, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a good choice for a lot of golfers out there.

For me, the ball is more of a distance ball rather than a soft feel golf ball. From the tee, the Supersoft provides a great amount of length and comes off the face quite hot.

The launch angle seems to be slightly higher, with low spin, which is ideal for players that struggle with carry. This of course added to the extra distance which I experienced.

Long irons were perhaps the area where I noticed the greatest difference in distance. Even on mis-hit shots, it felt like the ball flight was strong and a good distance was achieved.

On well-struck long irons, I was adding between 5 and 10 yards on each shot as the ball just flies so far.

For shorter approach shots, I found myself struggling to get used to the extra distance. The ball seems to come off the face pretty fast.

The feel certainly takes a bit of getting used to, unlike many other golf balls I’ve played with. But once you’re used to it, it does actually feel nice to hit with.

Next up we’ve got the spin available with this ball. A ball that’s supersoft, you’d expect to have a fair amount of spin and to be fair, it does give some good spin control around the greens.

On pitch shots and shorter chips, the Supersoft golf ball will check up and grab, if the right connection is made.

As mentioned, it does feel a little hard off the face, so I was overhitting chip shots quite often. However, the ball would stop fairly quickly once it found the putting surface.

Finally, the durability of the Callaway Supersoft was pretty good, as expected. A couple of shots from the bunker were enough to leave a mark on the cover, but this was only small and not enough to have any effect on the performance.

So are the Callaway Supersoft balls good and should you be adding them to your golf game this season?

Overall, it’s clear to see why the Callaway Supersoft is one of the most popular golf balls on the market today. It’s not a premium golf ball, but it offers a level of control from around the greens and the distance it can give to slower-swing speed golfers is certainly appealing.

For the price, it’s one of the best golf balls on the market for those that lack swing speed and if you’re looking to add some yardage to your game, without sacrificing control, the Callaway Supersoft is the right golf ball for you.

Final Thoughts

The Callaway Supersoft golf ball is a great pick for many golfers. Whether they’re new to the game or a keen golfer, it offers more distance and good spin control.

If you’re after a cheaper alternative, why not try the Callaway CXR Power golf balls or a Callaway Warbird.
