Compared to the HX Tour ball, the Callaway HX Tour 56 is a little softer and does manage to get a decent amount of spin on the greens.
Like the HX Tour it is very stable in the wind and the distance was very good too, although Callaway suggest that the HX Tour should be a little longer than the HX Tour 56 golf ball.
It has a thinner out cover for better feel, but in normal play the paint on the cover of the ball came off after 12 holes of so, but the cover remained intact.
However this could be expensive over time if you like a pristine ball. Apart from that, the HX Tour 56 is an excellent golf ball for windy conditions and for the better player who wants more feel around the greens.
