Summary: Anyone can play the top of the line $3.00 per ball dozens and say a ton of nice things about the product. In this economy of having to tighten the belt and save when and where you can, it only makes sense for serious golfers to seek out affordable alternatives.
Summary: I bought a box of these to see if they would give me more distance. I could not be more happy. I gained about 15 yards with my driver and at least one club length with each iron. They putt okay too. They're not as soft as some but they're not a rock either.
Conclusion: So I got a sleeve of these for getting a subscription to Golf magazine. I tried them out and really liked them. So before the last Big Dog tourney at Knollwood I picked up a box. These things just fly off your driver.
Conclusion: I played 2 sleeves of these and ended up giving my normal playing patrner the other two sleeves from the box for 1 sleeve of NXT's. The are long and feel good off the driver but lack the feel I prefer around the greens and spin needed for the courses in my area.
Conclusion: I have been using the HX Hot for a couple of years. At least for me it is about the longest. Bite, on and around the greens, is a bit lacking. I have adjusted (sort of) to the minimalist spin rate but I'm champing-at-the-bit to get my hands on the new HX Hot "Bite.
Conclusion: First of all lets set one thing clear. The pro V1 is the best ball out there, played almost by 100% of non sponsored players, why? nothing beats it. This been said you can add it costs about 50 dollars. So lets safe this precious balls for tournaments.
Conclusion: Used to play the Taylormade Burner balls, but never really got the distance as advertised. So I picked up a dozen of these before playing Wailea in Maui and I was glad that I did. These balls seem to fly longer, farther and straighter then almost any other similar ball (Taylormade, Titleist NXT, Top...
Conclusion: I like the Callaway brand and these are among my favorites of the Callaways. I've played 27 holes with the same ball and it still looked decent. Nice feel, good distance. to me, this is a better ball than some of the more expensive competitors.
Conclusion: HX Hot's are my ball of choice for courses with slower greens (and we've got lots of those around here). Great, non-ballooning trajectory, and plenty of spin into slower greens. I originally bought some for distance off the tee in Scramble tournaments, but I ended up putting them in play full-time...
