Ball and Logo Performance
This ball was actual ball that played 36 holes 150 strokes from brand new.
The print held up pretty well maybe even better than the ball.
How Do Refinished Balls Perform?
Numbers Don't Lie!
Independent tests have been conducted to show exactly how differently a refinished ball performs compared with its brand new counterpart.
So here is the test:
Balls exactly the same as the ones we supply to you were taken to an independent golf ball testing facility (Advanced Golf Solutions) that tests new balls for many of the top manufacturers. All the grades of recycled and refinished balls were tested. Our range of refinished balls showed a negligible difference in performance from a brand new ball.
And here’s what we found out:
The balls in all the various grades tested against new golf balls right out the package show only a very minimal loss of carry distance. Our refinished range was so well performed that with a driver the maximum loss of carry over a drive of about 260 yards is only a loss of around 7 inches (17.8cm)! We showed similar proportional results with both a wedge and 6 iron as indicated in the graphs below.
Test Results Highlights:
Insignificant Total Carry Difference
“Our data proves new balls and pre-owned balls are basically interchangeable,” says Tony Nelson, President of AGS. “I don’t see how the average golfer would notice a difference – except for the price.”
Insignificant Spin Rate Difference
Insignificant Launch Angle Difference
Minimal Descent Angle Difference
Insignificant Apex Height Difference
Insignificant Float Time Difference
