I would be happy to donate balls to someone who wants to write a review on these balls. Better yet - I can send a sampling of balls so a person can review and compare the balls on my dime.
Let me know
I'll take you up on that offer.
I played these on a few holes today and I don't think there is a longer ball out there.
I usually play a Pro V1 or HX Tour, and my Hcp is 9-10.
I was really hitting these into the ozone today, but I didn't really pay a lot of attention to the spin into the greens.

Let me know"
I would also be happy to take you up on the offer. I hit some of the other Cally HX series balls (red and blue only), and found the HX Hot to be the best of those 3. Harder cover than the Blue or Red, and it does fly farther with the reduced spin. I know some people knock it on the green because of the harder cover. It does tend to roll more with the putter. I haven't taken notice of it on shots where I need to spin yet. I usually use a higher spin ball for Par 3. I'm sure I'll play these again next spring/summer. There a decent ball for the price. This is the only ball I've found that fits my game as good as the NXT Tour.
End of last year, my game was finally good enough to justify buying a dozen Pro V1's. Didn't like them all that much. Got a sleeve of new Pro V1X's that I haven't hit (I'm hoping for these perform well with my swing). Haven't tried the Nike One's yet, as I felt some of there other golf balls were terrible (Mojo).

I think they feel pretty soft off of the putter and the wedges. For a 25 dollar golf ball they fit my game well. I will probably keep a dozen around at all time.

It's long, but doesn't check. That's why I keep a second ball in the bag (HX 56) when I want to check it up on Par 3s and when I think about it when I tee off...

I just ordered some of the used HX-red's as well. I'll post a review of the used balls somewhere on this site once I receive them. I was thinking about trying out the hx hot, but mostly i'm looking for something to replace the discontinued hx-red. If anyone's played both balls, I'd welcome a comparison. Even better, if anyone can recommend a replacement for the HX Red, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

The HX Tour is real manageable with a great feel and good spin, especially stopping power, on the greens, but again, they get trashed easily. The HX-Hot though seems to be a great ball for my swing. With a very fast swing speed off the driver, the ball just goes straight, straight, straight! It can be "worked" though, and does run on the greens, but that can be managed. The cover is tough and lasts longer than the others. There is no question that, for me, it does go about 15 yards longer than other spin balls.

I picked up a sleeve of HX Hots and found the same thing. Seemed like the best approach was to take a club (or two) less than normal land the ball in front of the green and run it up if its a hard green. They are long though I reached a 540 yard par 5 in 2 for the first with this so I may have found my wet weather ball.

If you want to out drive your buddies, give it a shot. However, if you want your ball to stop on a dime, look elsewhere. I do like the look and feel of this ball though.

It "feels" long for my drive, but it tend to balloon after the initial rise. not quite as long as TM black, Callaway HX, Srixon UR-S, Bridgeston B-330.
It's a good intermidiate level golf ball, one of my playing partner loved it.

Driver swing speed = 90-95mph. My round was +14....which is on the high side for me but not excessively so.
I couldn't tell the difference between this ball, the Srixon Trispeed or the Titleist NXT. Drives and approach shots went about the same with all three. This ball seems to have a reputation for not holding greens. This wasn't my experience. It held on approach shots from 130 to 180 yards. I also didn't find this ball to run more than the others on chip shots.
After the three rounds, you could've put the labels from one onto the other and I couldn't have been able to tell the difference.
I watched my playing partner play this ball and the next round play a Titleist ProV1 (not sure which year). He seems to hit this ball noticeably farther than the ProV1 but his chip shots seemed to check up more w/ the ProV1.

So I gave it four stars for being pretty good at what it is billed for. If you want stopping power go elsewhere. If you want long and straight, this is your ball. If you want both, get some Tour ix.
