Tech Talk: New for 2012, the five-piece construction starts with the softest inner core and the firmest outer core in company history to produce the biggest difference between driver-shot spin and wedge-shot spin. The firm outer mantle is for speed, and the soft inner mantle is to help absorb impact. A slightly thicker thermoplastic urethane cover than last year’s model is designed for softer feel.

Verdict: Why one ball? Because the idea was to make a ball faster than the firm-core Tour iZ and softer than the soft-cover Tour iS. We approve.

Callaway HEX Black Tour- 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.

    The Callaway Hex Black Tour is one of my favorite balls right now. I keep it in play most of the time unless we are testing a ball. To me, it’s one of the best balls our right now. I absolutely love the feel off the driver and especially of the wedge. You can read my full review at http://www.southerngolfreview.com/review-of-calloway-hex-black-tour/
