Played with a Callaway rep a few days ago. I mentioned how much I liked the XLS except for one thing: cover durability. He handed me a white box sleeve and said, "yeah, we hear that a lot. This is coming out in a couple months. Let me know what you think."

Y'all. These are *legit.* The cover is muuuuuuch softer but more durable while maintaining the performance from the current version. Nice, flat trajectory on all clubs and a firm-but-not-harsh feel. With the current gen, on short irons, I could flush it and think I clanked it. Much more responsive and better feedback with the new version. 

Greenside is tuned and responds how I'd expect based on the shot I'm hitting and they've really done a great job making it less clicky on slow-speed swings and off the putter. 

Oh, and durability? Current version: ~3 holes before the cover is shredded. New version? Played 9 today with the same ball and not a scuff or scrape to be seen. Don't sleep on this one...

The X LS was always an interesting option I had considered, this makes it that much more appealing!

I really like the LS, but like you had problems with the cover. Cant wait to give those a try.

X LS is one of my backup balls (to the Pro V1 and Left Dash).  I will be very interested to see the new version.  Thanks for the heads up GG!

Would it kill them to make Truvis across all the lines? That's something I wish they would get squared away

This would have been a great one for Johnny Wunder back in the Nov AMA. Seems like they're going hard in the paint on Triple Track and are mostly letting Truvis fall by the wayside. Which is a shame. If you could get the Truvis to also provide an alignment aid a la Taylormade's Pix, I'd much prefer Truvis over plain. (I actively dislike Triple Track, personally)
