The Callaway SuperSoft golf ball is Callaway's softest ball ever. What do you get when you combine the lowest compression golf ball ever with HEX Aerodynamics? A long, straight distance ball that is incredibly soft of course. The low compression reduces spin for increased distance and a straighter ball flight.
  • 38 compression is the softest golf ball on the market
  • Ultra Low Compression reduces spin for increased distance
  • Low spin results in straight ball flight

Short Story: Although I have only played 18 holes with it to this point, the SuperSoft feels like cheating. The long story follows. At the risk of sounding immodest, when I was younger, I could really play. I am now 61 years old and have a bunch of health issues that make it a bit of a struggle to find a body part I can rely on from day to day. I need a ball that minimizes severity of bad misses and something that rewards good decisions and good swings. I switched from the ProV1 to the Hex Tour Black when it first came out, but recently starting leaning toward the SR-2. I started reading about the SuperSoft a few weeks ago. At first blush, the notion of a something in the nature of a 30 compression ball seemed “nuts.� Like some others (e.g., MNGolfer from Minneapolis), I thought the SuperSofts wouldn't be for me based on swing speeds. Despite my age and health, with the driver I am the mid-high 90's on a bad day, around 105 mph on a pretty good day, and every once in while on a really good day and when I look for extra sometimes can get it to about 115 mph. (Don’t ask where that extra 10+ mph comes from because I have no idea. It just shows up on occasion.) Yesterday, I was hitting balls and one of the guys on the range suggested I quit and go play, so I did (the weather was nice, the course was empty and although the greens were less than ideal, plugged, sanded and verticut over the last two weeks and some rain in the past few days so they were bumpy from the “late in the day footprints� it seemed like a nice thought). Overall, it seemed like a good opportunity for some on course practice because I made a major equipment change about a month ago ago (from RAZR Tour with steel and Taylormade 2.0 Burner Hybrids to Apex irons with fiber shafts and the X2 Hybrids and still trying to dial in the nuances) and thinking “compare� the SR-2 to the Hex Tour Black. I saw the GM on the way in and asked him if he had tried the SuperSoft (he is pretty much a Callaway guy at this point). He gave me a two ball sleeve. I started with and pretty much played the SuperSoft all day. Result: 11 pars and 7 bogeys. Not particularly great, but here is the thing, every bogey was the result of one of two things: 1. Full shots that flew the green (and the course is such that long is usually death); and 2. Short shots that came up an “extra� 5-6 yards short. Whenever that happened, I hit the same shots with the Hex Black and/or SR-2. Bottom Lines: 1. Full shots with mid and short irons and wedges with the SuperSoft were flying about 12-18 yards further than the other balls; 2. Longer shots (hybrids) with the SuperSoft were flying about 15-25 yards further; 3. Soft and shorter shots (30-75 yards) were stopping dead and a bit short (at first I thought it might have been the softer greens, but “re-plays� with the Hex Black and SR-2 were still hitting and jumping forward); 4. The ball wants to fly straight and cut throught the wind like all the Callaway hex patterns and allows dead aim with ease (normally, I do not think about “dead aim straight� outside 150 yards if that, but with the SuperSoft and toward the end of the round and once I got a bit more comfortable, dead aim from 180-190 seemed like a piece of cake); 5. Even though the ball wants to fly straight, it can still be worked up or down and left to right or right to left (a possible negative might be that even a little bit of over-cooking it can result in something very bad; I tried to hit a few low draws and ended up with some BAD smothers although I may have overcooked it to a point that anything would have been smothered and even then, I was still in play and not as bad off as with other balls; like MNGolfer from Minneapolis says, I had to accentuate the draw/fade efforts to make the ball move and could do it; for me it seems some care is warranted not to overcook it and more so when looking for something that draws as opposed to something that cuts); 6. Around the green and with high short wedges, the ball stops like a melted marshmallow, but is still great for hitting a low running shot (i.e., if I wanted to flop and stop it, the ball stopped even on a few from downhill lies to greens running away); 7. Left to right type shots seemed easier than right to left (e.g., a left to right type shot seemed as though it could be played with the thought of intentionally pushing the ball/shot); 8. It felt like a dream coming off the putter (I have a medium density insert), not too soft and not too much click and it seems to reward even minimal effort to get the side stamp on the line. If there was a negative (and given the limited time to date, I am not so sure this is true), it was that big driver swings did not seem to yield as much distance compared to the Hex Tour Black or SR-2, but the positive was that the “choke down go to shot� with the driver was yielding 20-30 yards more than the Hex Tour Black and SR-2 and both the big swings and go to shots went where they were aimed. Here is sort of a big positive. On the 5th hole, I hit two SuperSofts off the tee (one “down the line� and one “trying to wrap� the corner). The one down the line was perfect. I probably overcooked the around the corner effort, smothered it a bit and lost the ball. That left one ball to play the rest of the round. Thirteen holes later, that one ball was still perfectly round and flying as far as when it came out of the box. The SuperSoft seems to be most forgiving on the long shots that feel the worst. I hit one “go to driver� that felt like it would end up in the opposite fairway to the right. It ended up about 7-8 yards of the intended target line. Unfortunately, it trickled into a fairway bunker I thought was totally out of reach (I smacked four more big tee shots afer that, two each with the SR-2 to the Hex Tour Black and all of them were at least 15 yards short of the fairway bunker). Even if I might be giving up the opportunity to reach for some extra distance with the SuperSoft compared to the SR-2 and/or Hex Tour Black (and I am far from sure it might not be there having only played 18 holes with it), being able to bunt it out there 260+ and in the fairway, if not the preferred side, sure seems like a nice trade-off especially for a 61 year old guy with a beat up body. Overall, I plan to keep experimenting with the SuperSoft and expect it to become the current ball of choice for quite a while and this does not even take into account the cost ($1.65 versus close to $4.00 per ball). Would this be a ball suited to a tour pro or a really good scratch type player: Probably not (almost certainly not and it was designed to be such a ball). Is this a ball that anybody and everybody else should give a try: Absolutely (but be a little patient considering the extra distance and how it stops).

      Comments about Callaway SuperSoft Golf Balls:

      I've been using the Super Soft for a few months now. It is still the best value golf ball for the buck out there. $20 a dozen...really!? Amazing. Having said that, there is only one area I found the ball to be short in, and that is spin, or better, control. When I use a ProV1, I can get it to bounce once, check and then roll out. Not so the Super Soft. It would simply bounce and roll then the job is to judge the roll. I never quite got it. Then, Callaway released the Chrome Soft. Yes, it is twice the price of the Super Soft but it has all the control features of the ProV1 and is a three piece soft ball that flies straight and long. Most importantly, it is totally controllable around the greens. It is my new ball and dang the cost. If cost matters, hang in with the Super Soft. Cheers.

          About Me Golf Enthusiast

          Comments about Callaway SuperSoft Golf Balls:

          After having both shoulders operated on, for the last 2 years I've been trying to re-learn how to find a swing within my limited range of motion and my swing speed has dropped to the low 80's. On a friend's recommendation, I bought a dozen of these balls and after one round, I'm hooked. I shot my lowest score years. I haven't enjoyed this much accuracy or distance since before I had my shoulders worked on. The feel is great both off the tee and on the green and they are straight! Stuck the greens really well also. I was a little concerned about that durability of such a soft ball, but they held up almost as well as any other ball I've hit before. Another quality product from Callaway and at the price point, they are a BARGAIN!
          Also worth mentioning, I gave a couple of them to a buddy with a much higher swing speed, he loved them as well.

          The Holy Grail for Slow Swing Speeds (80-85mph)

              Comments about Callaway SuperSoft Golf Balls:

              As an 11 handicapper with a 85mpk swing speed I have tried every brand of golf ball recommended for slow swing speeds with no success until I found this ball. It does everything advertised and at last I have found the perfect ball. It is the most durable ball I have ever played and so far I have been unable to dent or mark the ball cover. On responsiveness I can feel the ball coming off the club both woods and irons and consistently get the straightest ball flight I have ever experienced. As for distance, I have achieved some of my longest drives without having to try and swing any harder. The ball is very workable with my wedges and putting is a dream with a nice soft feel. I would highly recommend this ball.

              from Taiwan

              Comments about Callaway SuperSoft Golf Balls:

              ProV1 is the most popular ball used in Taiwan. Most golf teams use it for prizes. However, our team run out of budget this year and changed to "Super Soft". I received some. Incredibly, it perfectly matches my requirements. What surprised me is that when I don't hit right on sweet point, it still flies. Guess it's because the ball is sofer than others.

              I played my first round with the supersoft ball yesterday 7/30/14 on a course with greens running at 11 on the stimp meter. I shot 73 hitting 14 greens. I hit this ball farther and straighter than i do with pro v 1. What a great find. I can't wait to get out there today.

                  Comments about Callaway SuperSoft Golf Balls:

                  I play these all the time now. I still pull out my Pro V-1's for comparison now and then. The Supersoft flies so much higher than the others. It stops on the greens for me just as well as urethane balls. The high flight helps me land softer on the greens. I don't see the driver back spin like I do with the Pro V-1. Sometimes I will hit a great drive with the Pro V-1, and only get a yard of roll because of the back spin. These don't check on chips like the Pro V-1, but run out more. A little practice and you get the feel for it. These are great balls, and a greater value.
