What didn't you like about the ERC Soft and what did you like about the Costco ball?

It’s hard to put my thumb on it exactly. The Tour Soft was just straighter and more consistent for me.

 

In contrast, I’ve read that the Diablo Tour is a close match, but it feels harder to me.

I asked their Director of Marketing for golf balls about this ball about 18 months ago when I first ran across it. His response was:

 

"The Hex Tour Soft is actually a really good ball.   I would say the ball that most closely matches the performance of the Hex Tour Soft is the Superhot golf ball.   Both are 3pc Surlyn covered balls."

If you're looking for a decent 3 pc Surlyn ball, please hold the tomato throwing for a sec, try the new 2020 Top Flite Gamer.  I thought it felt nice off the club and performed very well.

The Diablo Tour is harder, although they perform, the feel is more clicky.  

Also, IMHO, The new Kirkland Ksig 3.2 is a fantastic ball, especially for the cost.  Played yesterday with a 4 and 7 handicapper and that is their gamer.  I've hit longest drive with it and it has a ProV-1 kind of soft feel to it.  Maybe a tad softer.

Did he mention what the differences between the two balls are?

Check out the Callaway Diablo Tour. 

This is probably the closest readily available Callaway ball (Dicks/GG) but the cover is definitely noticeably harder.  The Hex Tour Soft felt somewhere between the Supersoft (2 pc) and the Diablo Tour which was a really nice balance.  Reminded me a lot of the Top Flite Gamer Soft from a few years back.

I played a full round with the ERC Soft today instead and it worked out fine. Didn’t like it as much but I think it’ll be my substitute for now.

Did you play with the version that just came out or the original? I played the original for the better part of a year and got to "test" the new version. Both versions are good and I think the ERC is very underrated.

Costco started selling the new black Callaway Hex Tour golf balls. There's no info on the packaging other than it has a hybrid golf ball cover for longer distance and more spin.

Nope! This is what I got from my local US Costco. No mention of Hex Tour Soft. Just Hex Tour.

They had a Hx Tour that came after the Hx Red and before the Hx 56.

 

I still have several dozen of the above.   Never tried any of the ones after these.  One thing I don't get/like is why Callaway can't settle on a name and stick to it.

 

Pro V1 & Vx  have used the same names since the Rule 35 was born and 36 +/- name changes for Callaway and growing.
