Callaway Superhot 70 Golf Ball Review
Dimples: 332 HEX Aerodynamics
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.

Core: Compression Core
The Callaway Superhot 70 is a very soft feeling golf ball which is built for distance, boasting a low (70) compression core for faster speeds. The previous version, the Superhot 55 had obviously a 55 compression core, hence you’d expect from the improved model to be a tad firmer. The Callaway Superhot 70 is built using a three piece design, featuring a relatively firm mantle layer and the latest gen Surlyn cover, which works in tandem with the core for reducing spin on full shots. In this way, playing the Callaway Superhot 70 you’ll be able to reduce hooks and slices. The HEX dimple pattern is more aerodynamic compared to the previous version and it works by reducing in-flight drag thus increasing lift, resulting in a higher trajectory shot off the tee and from the greens. The Callaway Superhot 70 boasts a new cover composition that also helps with generating higher spin rates plus improved control on shots from the fairway compared to the Superhot 55. What’s interesting to notice is that the Callaway Superhot 70 is sold in 15 packs, not by the dozen as usual, for $28 a pack (MSRP).
Bottom line, if you’re looking for a 3 piece golf ball built for more accuracy due to its softer core/mantle which will maximize lift and distance, the Callaway Superhot 70 has your name on it. This is the quintessential piece of golf gear for game improvement, dramatically reducing the risks of slicing a shot or hitting a hook. The Callaway Superhot 70 is pretty long from tee to green and it has that soft feel everyone’s looking for, being recommended for golfers seeking to add accuracy and distance in their long game and also for those who require more carry.
