2013 Golf Digest Hot List: Gold Medal
This golf ball strikes the perfect balance of Tour performance for both the distance-seeker and the control freak. Engineered with a highly durable Urethane cover, this ball is designed for Optimized Tour Performance. HEX Black Tour promotes low spin off the tee for more distance in your long game and high spin on approach shots for total control and aggressive stopping power into the green. From powerful ball speeds to a penetrating ball flight and soft feel, this golf ball offers the ultimate blend of Tour Distance with Tour Control.
|Six Points of Performance
With features like superior greenside spin, enhanced durability and HEX Aerodynamics, HEX Black Tour delivers six points of performance that help make this our most highly engineered Tour Ball ever.
This dual core construction provides optimized spin separation from tee to green. The high spin separation helps generate longer distance off the driver and long irons due to lower spin, and higher spin closer to the green for superior greenside control. The inner and outer core recipes are adjusted so that the outer core has a high compression and the inner core an extremely soft compression. This relationship allows HEX Black Tour to achieve the highest spin separation we've ever had in a Callaway golf ball.
This proprietary urethane cover formulation significantly improves durability to better prevent marks and scratches throughout the round. It also produces both the soft feel and exceptional short-game spin that players seek in a high performance Tour golf ball.
Both the inner and outer mantles are comprised of different grades of Surlyn® ionomers that are mixed in different ratios to affect the hardness and resilience of the mantle layers. The soft inner and firm outer mantles combine to protect the dual core i-Core Technology while also producing powerful ball speeds.
Callaway's patented HEX Aerodynamics produce 100% surface area coverage on a golf ball whereas traditional round dimples typically cover only 88% of the surface. This highly engineered pattern provides the best aerodynamic performance ever in a Callaway golf ball, reducing drag and promoting a stable, penetrating ball flight.
