OK but not Great for my specific game

  • 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. The ball flight has a lower trajectory which is fine with me and helps the distance but over all it just doesn't fit my swing, game or typical courses.

Loong!

  • 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." Also: Please - more feedback on the new TopFlite "Feel" ball.

Good Ball For the Money

  • 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 Flite Gamer). Ball doesn't spin as much, but your short game spin you sacrifice for cost and durability...as these balls are very durable.

  • 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.

Great Ball!

Gus, The Greenskeeper

  • 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 on the slower courses. Logo overruns at $18/doz are hard to beat.
