Srixon Soft Feel Vs. Callaway Supersoft Golf Balls Comparison Overview
When comparing distance balls, you may have asked yourself whether you need a ball that is just soft or one that is “super soft.” The answer to that question will ultimately come down to preference and the specific needs of your game.
However, it is possible to decipher the differences of balls that fall into the same category of distance or recreational balls.
To do so, we tested the Callaway Supersoft and the Srixon Soft Feel balls side-by-side and recorded our findings in the following article.
Callaway Supersoft Golf Balls Overview
The Callaway Supersoft balls truly live up to their name with a ridiculously low compression rating and an equally soft cover material to boot.
Everything about the Supersoft balls were made to feel, well, super soft. Off the club face, you can barely feel that you made contact which, to be honest, we didn’t really like.
These are almost too soft with a staggering compression rating of only 38.
Off the tee, you get great help with distance. Our slower swing speed testers (between 88 and 95 MPH) were able to whack the ball about 259 yards on average.
The Supersoft balls are 2-piece balls so the spin stays nice and low with your driver all the way up to your wedges.
Controlling launch angles was a bit of an issue with these balls – you don’t really have an option besides very high-arcing shots.
Srixon Soft Feel Golf Balls Overview
The Srixon Soft Feel balls have a significantly higher compression rating than the Supersoft balls and it really makes a difference.
Both the Srixon Soft Feel and Callaway Supersoft balls are 2-piece balls in the distance category. However, Srixon made the Soft Feel balls with a compression rating of 71.
We liked the added firmness off the club face more than the Supersoft balls but our slow swing speed testers were hating it.
The Srixon Soft Feel balls don’t fly as far off the tee as the Supersoft balls. On average, the same testers were getting only 252 yards off the tee with the Srixon Soft Feel balls.
Short-game performance was similar but we were noticing a bit more side spin on the short irons with the Srixon Soft Feel balls.
The main difference is feel and driver distance. Slower swing speed players will definitely like the Callaway Supersoft balls more than the Srixon Soft Feel balls.
