Volvik Crystal golf ball
Friday, May 23, 2014
In the United States, this is Volvik’s most famous ball. It is a three-piece ball intended for golfers with slow to medium swing speeds (60 to 95 mph with a driver, according to Volvik).
The Crystal has a 350-dimple design with a Surlyn cover. It is an 80-compression ball, using Volvik’s measurement standards, and it is Volvik’s answer to the centuries-old golf riddle of providing maximum distance along with suitable greenside control.
Available in orange, yellow, pink and green, the Crystal is a durable, affordable ball that is an appropriate choice for a large variety of golfers.
Why do some players prefer colored golf balls?
Visibility can be a factor. A colored ball often is easier to see in the air. This also is true for a golf ball on the ground. Colored balls tend to stand out after they stop rolling. And in a game dominated by white balls, a colored ball generally can be identified with ease.
The design, construction and performance of colored balls is identical to the white versions.
Cost: $29.99 per dozen.
