Callaway’s Triple Track design has been around since 2019 when it was first introduced on ERC Soft. In the last four-plus years, Triple Track has found its way onto the popular Chrome Soft line and been part of a historic major championship victory. But the overall design — a series of alternating blue and red lines on the side of the ball that utilize Vernier Hyper Acuity for alignment purposes — has remained the same.
That officially changed this week with the arrival of 360 Triple Track on Chrome Soft — an expanded version of the original design that wraps around the entire ball, providing a blue-and-red visual track for “advanced alignment.”
According to Callaway, the 360-degree design helps golfers “choose the proper start line, and promotes visible roll feedback on the putting green.” Think of it as a souped-up version for golfers who already see benefits from the original Triple Track.
As for the cover construction and what’s underneath the hood, Chrome Soft remains the same. The 3-piece Chrome Soft 360 Triple Track ($49.99 per dozen) golf ball, which is the softest of the models, is made for the widest range of players who want all-around performance and a soft feel. With the new core construction and aerodynamic cover pattern, Callaway was able to increase speed and reduce spin on long shots without changing the familiar soft feel.
According to Callaway, the new 2022 Chrome Soft produces 0.5 mph more ball speed with the driver, 130 rpm less driver spin, and 330 rpm less iron spin. Overall, that means a more controllable ball flight on long shots and more distance.
Callaway’s Chrome Soft X 360 Triple Track golf ball was the company’s number one model on professional tours, and according to the company, player feedback showed they didn’t want much to change. So, Callaway listened. Without changing the spin profile at all, Callaway was able to increase driver ball speed by 0.7 mph due to the new core in the 2022 version.

Callaway Chrome Soft X
Check out Fairway Jockey to pick up Callaway’s Chrome Soft X golf ball.
For its Chrome Soft X LS 360 Triple Track, Callaway designed a slightly softer cover that wedge grooves can bite into more. With the new Hyper-Elastic SoftFast core, though, longer shots won’t see any increase in spin or speed.
The Chrome Soft X LS is still made for better players who want speed and precision on long shots, but the company has increased greenside spin for short game control. According to Callaway, the new Chrome Soft X LS increases driver speed by 0.8 mph, reduces driver spin by 130 rpm, and reduces iron spin by 120 rpm compared to the previous version.
