    I’ll have to give the Chrome Soft a try.

    ^^this. Unfortunately stock holders rule. The original chrome soft is the best IMHO. The Grapahlen whatever I hated. Bring a new one out -the 2017's will get cheaper.




    You're in the minority. The 2018 Chrome Soft (and X) was head and shoulders better than any previous iteration.




    Probably. I think the 2018 version is geared more for tour type players and SS. Like when the pro V first came out and most of the tour guys gained 20 yards instantly. I don't have the game to take full advantage. The older ones suit me fine around the greens etc.

    It drives me crazy that they know they’ll release them, but they do it a few months after the initial release.

    I'm a handicap golfer in my 50's. Any opinions I have about golf equipment or professional golfers or the game in general should be taken as seriously as you would the opinions of a random guy in the fourball ahead of you who just shot 92 but is usually better than that.

    Speaking to local rep yesterday. Very little was his reply. Balls and clubs doing really well. Only teaser was a forged XR version?

    Judging by what we’ve seen and heard here, I’d say your local rep is out of the loop!

    Harry is with OGIO. Callaway has had a few Q&A’s on here lately that were pretty awesome.

    A guy that I know is a big club guy. Wants to have uniform bag. He knows everyone in the golf world and gets lots of good stuff. He recently ordered some raw callaway mb. I’ve got a feeling he’s positioning to go that route. He really liked the TM stuff this year too. I bet Callaway has good stuff coming.

    I dont want to be a debbie downer, BUT...



    I'm good with the new clubs... shoes... whatever.



    But, the ball? It's similar to what happened to the Lethal ball. Everyone loves it, it's a good ball. So, let's change it.



    Their ball is competitive and has a following, why change it to a new technology,? Presumably for new performance. People are trying to work with the ball to get comfortable with it.



    Titleist updates the pro v line, but the changes are small. Not much new tech, maybe a refinement. This sounds like new... wasn't graphalene new?




    As they start to see a decline in sales, they introduce a new product. If sales were steady or increasing there wouldn't be a new ball.
    Callaway sales are through the roof in 2018. #1 in irons, woods, putters and # 2 in golf ball and gaining market share.

    Couple of simple requests for 2018...



    1. Give me Truvis options on the X not just the Chome Soft. At least custom order.



    2. Give customers the option of the custom paint colors on the new drivers from the very beginning. Don’t wait till months later. And don’t charge the premium. It’s aldeady a premium for new drivers.

    Harry coming here was doomed from the start. Constructive criticism basically wasn’t allowed due to Cally’s sponsorship, and there was nothing in it for Callaway to come here and market their clubs.

    Funny, I saw it differently. Seemed that people went out of their way to be rude or **** on old marketing campaigns. We only hurt ourselves when we run off industry insiders. Duh.

    It is when it comes to OEM Executives fielding questions. All of the sudden 1/2 the people on the site become ‘60 Minutes’ correspondents...but, without the journalism background!
