Was in my local shop today talking about the new matte finished Wilson Duo ball. At the end of the conversation the salesman said that Callaway has a matte finish ball coming out. He couldn't remrember which model. I said the Supersoft ?  And he thought so but wasn't certain.

Any details on this ?  Which model and what color(s)?

What's the fascination with matte balls? Does the finish cause the ball to spin more or something? I see them all the time in shops and out on the course I play all the time, but I've yet to try one out.

A bunch of the reviews Ive seen cite their higher visibility. In very sunny conditions I could see this being true

I find something about the matte color, especially the red, visually pleasing. This game is very mental so anything that helps keep you in a positive mindset I guess is good?

I didn't care for how the Vivid played. I wanted to love that ball just because I loved how it looked.

It's going to be the new Callaway Superhot, packaged in a 15 ball pack. Red, Orange and Lime one color per package.

They are far easier for my eye to track as they transition from sky to trees to grass and the roll on the ground. Guess it's less glare or something, my eyes aren't what they used to be but I can follow a matte finish Volvik all the way until it stops rolling in a way I haven't been able to track normal balls for at least 10-15 years.

Volvik has done well with their Vivid Matte White finish so it appears the other manufacturers are following their lead.  They are a little bit easier to spot in the rough on sunny days when the grass is still wet.

2001 That would qualify as a Rat Rod at the car shows no?

I hadn't heard that about Callaway but I do know Wilson's got what looks like a matte finish Duo coming out in lots of colors.
