What Callaway say about the Chrome Soft X LS ball:
“It’s designed for maximum distance from a lower spin profile, and features all of the fast ball speed characteristics from the Company’s popular, Tour-proven Chrome Soft X.
“This new golf ball is especially suited for better players who want to ‘bomb it’ off the tee, with a tremendous combination of long distance and a straight ball flight from their longer clubs.
“It’s a 4-piece, single core construction that’s engineered to increase speed through a SoftFast Core, a Dual Mantle System, and a refined urethane cover.
“The high-speed core design is significantly larger to create more distance through the bag, and it works with the mantle system to deliver high resilience and speed.
“Chrome Soft X LS also promotes maximum greenside control from the thin proprietary urethane cover for high spin, low launch and excellent feel in your scoring clubs.”
Callaway Chrome Soft X LS Golf Ball Design & Features
The Chrome Soft X LS has been designed to provide added distance off the tee, and is a high-launch, low-spin ball.

The X LS is a 4-piece construction with a high speed core design generating more ball speed along with a soft inner mantle and firm outer mantle producing speed and resilience.
The combination of the three layers is behind the gains in distance, along with the urethane cover which features an aero pattern almost identical to the Chrome Soft X.
Available in two colour options, yellow and white, the X LS also has Callaway’s triple track technology incorporated.
