This golf ball is different. The new Chrome Soft Golf Ball has just been announced to the golfing masses, and we’ve innovated every layer, starting with our groundbreaking new, Graphene-infused Dual SoftFast Core.

Here’s what you need to know…

The Short Version

Chrome Soft Golf Balls combine Tour-proven ball speed and performance with unparalleled feel and exceptional mis-hit forgiveness.

Graphene Makes It Go

The new Graphene-infused Dual SoftFast Core features a new, larger inner core. This larger inner core maximizes compression energy while minimizing driver-spin and promoting high launch for long distance. Essentially, you have a recipe for faster ball speeds. This dual core construction with Graphene also promotes more distance off of the longer clubs in your bag (including your irons), and more control off of mid-irons, short irons and wedges.

What Is Graphene?

Graphene was the subject of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics. Seriously. It’s an incredibly strong material – stronger than diamond, 200 times stronger than steel, and believed to be the strongest material in the world. So what does that mean for golf balls?

With Graphene, we can produce a much stronger outer core that’s also much thinner, which allows us to make the inner core bigger and softer. So we can pump up the speed, pump up the spin-reducing characteristics of the soft core, and still provide incredible feel.

Pinpoint Control Around The Greens

The thin ultra-soft Tour Urethane Cover feels fantastic and generates shot-controlling, stroke-saving spin on pitches and chips.

Ultra-Soft Feel

The fast SubMantle, soft Tour Urethane Cover, and low compression core combine for unparalleled feel, especially off of your irons.


Yes, you’re getting great forgiveness from Chrome Soft. Softer golf balls compress easier on off center hits for incredible distance all over the face.

Which Ball Should You Play?

Chrome Soft and Chrome Soft X both deliver the same core performance attributes for fast ball speeds, soft feel and great short game control. But if you want an easy way to differentiate between the two, here it is:
  • Chrome Soft: Softest feel, best forgiveness, straight flight
  • Chrome Soft X: Soft feel, high forgiveness, workable flight

    I’ve applied too. I play Super Soft some of the time but am not in love with it as a ball. Maybe Chrome Soft is what I’ve been looking for?

    Good luck all...

    Want to try the x. I think the pro v1x is too clicky. If the chrome soft x works for me I'm switching.

    Applied. The ChromeSoft is a little too soft for my liking but would love to try the X.
