Spec: (Three) 3 Piece / Layers
The Callaway Superhot 55 Yellow retails for $27,99 a dozen (MSRP) and it can be described as a long golf ball, from tee to green, which will definitely help you to hit straight, with fewer slices and hooks. And yes, that sounds like great news to me folks. The Callaway Superhot 55 Yellow also delivers an amazing soft feel due to its 55 compression, while its high visibility color makes it very easy to track the ball in mid flight or on the golf course (on the ground, that is).
The brand new Callaway Superhot 55 Yellow features a three piece construction and an extremely soft fifty five overall compression, for delivering amazing distance and a soft feel, regardless what club in your golf bag you're using: an iron, a hybrid or a wood, the results will be the same, i.e. outstanding! The Callaway Superhot 55 Yellow was specially designed with a soft Surlyn cover (a proprietary technology) and a very soft mantle layer. These two technological innovations work together for delivering reduced slices and hooks, and they also lower spin rates for improved distance. The extremely soft coating of the Callaway Superhot 55 Yellow is essential for the dramatic increase in the short game performance/when around the greens. Being designed as a long golf ball, from tee to green, the Callaway Superhot 55 Yellow comes with an aerodynamic design, and it was engineered for minimal drag and optimal lift, for keeping the ball in the air for longer and providing a strong flight. These high tech features work miracles for providing you with extremely long distance off the driver, but also all the way through your short irons. The Surlyn cover and the soft mantle work in tandem for offering you straighter shots, and they're also great for lowering spin and reducing slices and hooks, translating into a more controlled ball flight, round after round.
