Rated 5 out of 5 by MickHLR Great Ball at a Great Price
I've tried a ton of balls...and have been using mainly Titleist NXT Tour balls for the past couple of years. I thought they were OK balls for the price. However, this past winter, when it was so cold, those 96 compression (golfballltest.org Majestix rating) NXT Tours felt like I was hitting a rock. So, I started looking for a lower compression ball. I found that most low compression balls have a hard cover, so that was kind of defeating the purpose to me. Then, I found that the Callaway HX Diablo was a 2-piece ball with a very low compression of 71 #golfballtest.org Majestix rating) and also showed a softer cover than most other balls. So, I tried a box. It was by-far the best-feeling ball I've ever tried in cold weather. And, I continue to like the soft feel and distance I get from this ball. I also hit my irons very high, so they have no problem stopping on the greens. Without a doubt, the best 2-piece ball on the market. Keep your Bridgestone e6's, your Nike Vapor Black's, your Titleist DT SoLo's, and all the way more expensive so-called "Tour" balls...I'll take this one over all of them, and that also includes the Callaway HX Diablo Tour. BTW...my swing speed with a driver is 109mph...and that is why I've been so reluctant to try a low-compression ball. And, I may lose a couple of yards in distance...but the no spin off the clubface makes up for that. I think I can actually feel the ball compressing on my clubface. I love the feel. And, they putt very well...with a solid, soft feel. Not like some balls that feel like you're putting a big marble.

I use 2 piece balls for 2 reasons. 1- cost. 2- I want my ball to bounce and stop and not spin back. I play to a 7 handicap and have trouble with 4 piece balls spinning back too far sometimes and not at all others. I also have trouble throwing away 4 bucks every time I hit one into the woods.
Out of the box, I love this ball. However, I've noticed they are subject to cracking later in the round or if I try to use them a second time. I'm a big fan of Callaway clubs, but this makes me wary of their balls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Callaway Golfer Very Pleased
I received a free case of HX Diable golf balls from Callaway when I purchased my Diablo Octane Driver. I was very pleased with the performance I got from them! They had a nice soft feel off the tee, without sacrificing that resonant sound that golfers love. The flight pattern was consistent to the point of being predictable, even in heavy wind conditions. They do wear pretty easily, with every solid drive leaving the shell scuffed, but overall I am very pleased, and I thank Callaway for another great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Windy Bay Old Guy WOW Not what I expected
The flight of this ball in windy conditions is the best I have ever played, but still maintains a great sense of touch 100 in.
