Callaway launches new Warbird and Superhot 70 golf balls

Published

on

Along with a new Chrome Soft X golf ball (which we reviewed here), Callaway has also launched its new Warbird and Superhot 70 golf balls.

“The design of every Callaway ball is important to us because each one has a fan base that wants to play better and score lower,” said Dave Bartels, Callaway’s senior director of golf ball R&D in a press release. “With the 2017 launch of these new models we hope to capture the essence of each product family while offering significant performance improvements that golfers can experience and enjoy.”

The Superhot 70 golf balls ($27.99 for a box of 15) have a three-piece construction that’s made with a “faster core and cover combination” (than its predecessor) to reduce spin with longer clubs and produce more distance and accuracy, according to Callaway. The company’s HEX dimple design is used on the cover, which Callaway says will help to stabilize its flight in the air, especially in windy conditions.

Callaway’s Warbird golf balls ($17.99 per dozen) use a two-piece construction that has a “new, livelier core” (than its predecessor) to make energy transfer more efficient at impact for more speed and distance. The update to the Warbird also includes the company’s HEX dimple design, which reduces drag for a more stable flight. The Warbirds comes in white or optical yellow colors.

Both golf balls will be available at retail on February 3.

    The NFL has one ball. The NBA one ball. MLB has one ball. Why do we get so many to choose from in golf?!

      because the nfl and teh mlb and nba pay for the balls…..imagine a home run hitter having to buy a new baseball..or even pay for foul balls into the stands

      That makes a lot of sense. Maybe there should only be one driver allowed as well, which one do you think it should be?

Modern Classics (Ep. 4): Testing a TaylorMade Burner SuperFast 3-wood

Published

on

GolfWRX recently launched a new 8-part video series, called “The Modern Classics,” in partnership with 2nd Swing Golf. Throughout this video series, GolfWRX’s Head of Tour Content, Andrew Tursky, tests out 8 legendary used golf clubs that are still being played on Tour today. How do the older, less expensive products compare to modern technologies?

In the first three episodes, Tursky tested out TaylorMade’s Tour Preferred MC 2011 irons, Adams Idea Pro hybrids from 2006, and a TaylorMade Rocketballz RBZ fairway wood.

For episode 4, we highlight the TaylorMade Burner SuperFast fairway woods, which were released to the public in 2010. Although they’re more than a decade old, we spotted one in Richard Bland’s 2022 WITB.

The Burner SuperFast fairway woods are currently available for $76.99 on 2nd Swing’s website.

Check out the video at the top of the page for more on the product, design, and how it stands up in testing against a modern 3-wood.

Best wedge for bad bunker players? – GolfWRXers discuss

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing wedges for poor bunker players. WRXer ‘gdb99’ kicks off the thread saying “I’m not good out of sand. I used to be, 35 years ago. I blade shots over the green. It’s all technique, and I need a lot of practice. I know that,” and reaches out to our members who have been sharing what they feel are the wedges that can help him the most.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • hammergolf: “Ping Eye2 is the best bunker club ever. If you’re blading it you’re not steep enough. Open the face and hit down on the sand. The bounce will stop it from digging too much.”
  • flubberlange: “Try a Vokey 60* in a K grind.”
  • Fwitz11: “I also struggle with the bunker and have found that an open 60 and hitting just behind the ball is the easiest out I have used. Has helped me a ton with not blading it over the green.”
  • lazyjc4: “I’ve hit the best bunker shots of my life with PM Grind wedges.  I look like I know what I’m doing almost all of the time.”
