New for 2019: Callaway ERC Soft, Supersoft and Supersoft Magna Golf Balls

Published

on

Callaway Golf has announced its newest golf balls for 2019 — the Callaway ERC Soft, Supersoft, and Supersoft Magna.

All three models hit retail stores on February 8.

Callaway ERC Soft

With the new ERC Soft Golf Ball, Callaway Golf introduces its new Hybrid Cover. The soft multi-material cover is designed to promote a combination of faster ball speed for longer distance with a soft feel, while also providing higher spin for excellent control around the green.

The ERC Soft also contains Callaway’s largest Graphene-infused Dual SoftFast Core yet, which features a larger inner core which aims to maximize compression energy for fast ball speeds, while minimizing driver spin to promote a high launch for greater distance.

With the ERC Soft, Callaway has also introduced its new Triple Track Technology. The new technology utilizes Vernier Acuity Precision (a visual technology used to land planes on aircraft carriers) and aims to improve alignment compared to a regular side stamp alignment aid.

The ERC Soft comes with a price tag of $39.99 per dozen.

Callaway Supersoft

The new Supersoft combines Callaway’s lowest compression with a new softer cover and HEX Aerodynamics.

The HEX Aerodynamics of the Supersoft Golf Ball aims to lower the spin rate to reduce drag while enhancing lift for increased carry, higher flight and longer distance.

The Ultra-Low-Compression-Core is designed to create low spin for a longer, straighter flight on full shots. While combined with the new soft Trionomer cover, the Supersoft Golf Ball aims to provide golfers with better feel and greater shot-stopping spin around the green.

The Supersoft cost $22.99 per dozen.

Callaway Supersoft Magna

The new Supersoft Magna is an oversized ball that still conforms to the USGA Rules of Golf. The bigger size aims to provide developing golfers and slow swing speed players, to make better contact on the clubface.

Its larger size, higher center of gravity and high MOI are designed to offer a higher launch and contact that you would typically get when a ball is teed up.

The Supersoft Magna also contains the same characteristics of the Supersoft Golf Ball, including the Ultra-Low Compression Core, HEX Aerodynamics and Soft Trionomer cover to provide golfers with all the benefits of the Supersoft Golf Ball.

The Supersoft Magna costs $22.99 per dozen.

    The three lines on the ERC Soft reminids me of Dave Pelz O-Ball.

    Living in Virginia, I generally play golf from April to November. Last year I used the supersoft ball, and liked it. So for my birthday, and Christmas I ask my family to buy me the supersoft golf balls as a gift. I have about 7 dozen ball, that will clearly last me throughout next year.
    Here is my problem with Callaway – I asked for the supersoft balls as on each box I own (given as presents) it states “New and Improved”. Foolishly, i assumed, and was told by my local golf store – Callaway normally comes out with improved golf balls product line every other year. (I know that golf clubs are revised annually, but not golf balls.) So, i assumed with the “new and improved” on each box sold in 2018 – Callaway would change/improve/modify the supersoft in 2020. I guess the market need to come out with newer and greater overrides printed “hyperbole” on the box.

    I know they say it is still a super low compression. Does anyone know what the actual compression is? The current Supersoft is said to be 38 degree. Have to wait to hear what the new Supersoft is. I remember many years ago that some company had a larger ball. It was a dud and went away quickly.

    The fact they use the word “technology” when talking about 3 lines painted on a golf ball is just obscene. Comparing technology on an aircraft (3 lines mind you) and lines painted on a golf ball. GET THE F OUTTA HERE. I just lost ALL respect for callaway. All these major brands are just making a mockery of people while trying to take their money.

    Time will tell how it sells to consumers. No mention of colors….might up the interest?

    The thought that a slightly larger ball might be easier to hit may be more in the golfer’s head, but the intended audience is likely not very aware of the distance they would hit any ball, and at low swing speeds, the differences are likely very small.

    I hope they got rid of the chrome soft name

    That would piss people off!

    Great. Now everyone can see how you mis-hit that putt!

    The Magna ball is odd. That’s been tried before (by Spalding Top Flite). It doesn’t make sense. There’s a reason the USGA puts limits on how SMALL and how HEAVY the ball can be. Making it bigger and keeping the same weight isn’t an improvement. The ball will travel less distance and the notion that some golfers will be able to “make better contact on the clubface….” is odd; the difference is too small to matter on the clubface, but large enough to matter in the air–in a not-good way.

      .of course they do own the patents form Top Flite. Only 22.99, let see Costco 3 piece urethane $23.99 for two dozen?? and my Costco had two full pallets sitting in the aisle just yesterday. Still have over 5 dozen of the Kirkland 4 piece but like the 3 piece much better..
