Home Callaway introduces its most advance ball yet

Callaway Golf announced that on March 2nd golfers worldwide will have access to its all-new HEX Black Tour golf ball. "I've had more fun working on my game with the new HEX Black Tour ball than I have in years because I've been able to hit shots around the green that I haven't been able to hit since the '90s with wound balls," said four-time Major Champion and Callaway Golf staff professional Phil Mickelson. "The amazing thing to me is the spin separation; how this ball spins so much from 40 yards in, and yet spins so little off the driver and goes so far. I've never seen a ball with that combination of short-range control and distance."

The HEX Black Tour is a five piece construction that includes a dual-core construction, which maximizes the compression difference, Callaway said, between the inner and outer core layers. A soft inner core helps reduce spin off the tee for more distance, according to the company, while the high compression outer core creates higher spin closer to the green for more control with irons and wedges.  

Both the inner and outer mantles are comprised of ionomer blends in different ratios to affect the hardness and resilience of each mantle layer, Callaway said. The combination of the soft inner and firm outer mantles produces powerful ball speeds across a range of swing speeds, according to the company. 

"We took a unique approach in the design of our new HEX Black Tour golf ball and the investments we've made in new technology over the past few years have culminated in this innovative 5-piece construction," said Dave Bartels, Sr. Director, Golf Ball Research & Development, Callaway Golf.  “The level of Spin Separation golfers will experience can be attributed to our advanced i-Core technology and new DuraSpin cover material.  Our advanced dual-mantle system and optimized HEX Aerodynamic design produce the ball speed and flight characteristics to benefit all golfers." The HEX Black Tour will debut at $45.99 per dozen.
