Some manufacturers do not reveal or emphasize the compression ratings of new golf balls. Some models are now designed and marketed to fit and appeal to a golfers preferences for price, distance, spin, feel and control.

Spec: (Two) 2 Piece / Layers
The Callaway HEX Soft retails for $19,99 a dozen (MSRP) and it's engineered as a very soft, straight and long golf ball with low compression, which delivers reduced spin and excellent distance, with fewer slices and hooks. Sounds great, doesn't it? As its name suggests, the Callaway HEX Soft golf ball, being as soft as it gets, is a distance ball with great feel and it will deliver amazingly low spin off of the woods, irons or hybrids for improved distance.
In the same time, the Callaway HEX Soft flies straight and greatly reduces spin with fewer slices and hooks. And, most importantly, when it comes to shots around the green, this baby delivers an outstanding soft feel. The low compression core of the Callaway HEX Soft is specially designed for amazing ball speeds and reduced spin, for increasing distance shot after shot, round after round. Also, the Callaway Hex Soft comes with a proprietary technology, the Soft Trinomere cover, which gives it its incredible feel when it comes to shots around the green. Bottom line, if you're looking for soft feel and exceptional distance in a golf ball manufactured by a reputable company, as it's the case with Callaway Hex Soft, you just go and try them for a few rounds, you'll be impressed just like I was. Highly recommended!
