The Callaway New Chrome Soft with Truvis Technology looks like a petite soccer ball and it retails for $39,99 (MSRP) per dozen. These golf balls are engineered and designed for exceptional feel and Tour proven performance, featuring the proprietary Truvis pattern which works wonders in maximizing the view of your ball as it flies through the air or on the ground. Also, the New Chrome Soft with Truvis Technology features a four piece construction and a state of the art Dual SoftFast core, for delivering increased ball speeds and improved spin rates, thus enhancing performance, regardless of what driver you're using. Now, you may be or may not be a big fan of soccer, but the New Chrome Soft with Truvis Technology really do improve your view of the golf ball, and that has nothing to do with your personal design-preference in a ball, right?
However, we will see how and if the game improvement factor will be enough for making the New Chrome Soft with Truvis Technology a big hit (or not), but what's certain is that Callaway really managed to put something unique on the market, and they deserve a kudos for that! The next question is, why would you buy a golf ball that looks like a tiny soccer ball? Well, for starters, it looks bigger than it really is, due to its peculiar design (that's scientifically proven folks) and a larger ball will definitely boost confidence, because it feels easier to hit. Confidence is great, because it certainly improves your performance on the golf course, as confidence makes kings. Another advantage of the New Chrome Soft with Truvis Technology is that you can really see it spin, especially on pitches and chips, offering plenty of feedback on what you're doing. Also, you can see it roll, and you'll know when you made a pure strike, the evidence is there to see it with your own eyes. Last but not least, it's really fun to play golf with a soccer ball, right?
