What Callaway says about the ERC Soft 360 Fade balls:
“ERC Soft introduces technologies that properly complement each other, delivering soft feel through the bag, incredible distance with the driver, added spin for greenside control with your wedges, and advanced alignment from tee-to-green.
“Now the ERC Soft 360 Fade is available in our NEW 360° Fade Technology, with better alignment across the golf ball, and visible roll feedback on the putting green.
“Increased greenside spin from new GRIP urethane coating system, which features high-elongation paint for increased control on approach shots and short game shots.
“Optimized for faster driver speed and soft feel around the green with exceptional feel, control, spin and long distance from hybrid cover, which allows us to create a versatile, multi-material construction.
“This is how we combine maximized distance from high launch and low spin, with soft feel and durability. With more efficient energy transfer between the layers for more ball speed and provides more wedge spin around the green.
“Advanced alignment across the golf ball from new 360 Fade Technology. Designed to help you choose the proper start line, and to promote visible roll feedback on the putting green.”

The three-piece construction also features a High Speed Mantle for exceptional energy transfer and ball speeds, as well as more spin in your short game.
A new Hybrid Cover is also introduced with the urethane coating system producing a high launch and low spinning ball with incredible durability.

Verdict: Are the new ERC Soft 360 golf balls any good?
The original ERC Soft balls were well received as a middle ground between the Chrome Soft range and the Supersoft and this generation builds on that further.
The improved construction design helps extract additional distance, a better ball flight, less spin in the long game but more in the short game and be more reliable than ever before.
The new 360 Fade Technology is an interesting addition, similar in principle to the TaylorMade Tour Response Stripe ball and does providing plenty of confidence that you are rolling putts on the line selected.
