How does the Polara golf ball work?
Each dimple of every Polara golf ball is designed with a specific purpose. Some dimples act to create a preferred spin axis, some act to lower lift and drag and some do both. The key is how the dimples are laid out on the ball. The dimples essentially create two types of zones on the ball’s surface:
- The Flight Correction Zone (located around the equator of the ball) has shallow truncated dimples that generate lower lift and act to establish a more horizontal spin axis. The lower lift means less force is directed towards moving a mishit ball to the right or left of target. The more horizontal spin axis means straighter flight because this lessens the side spin component, which is one of the root causes of hooks and slices.
- The Spin Stabilization Zones (located on each pole) contain large and small spherical dimples that are large enough in number that they act to reinforce the preferred horizontal spin axis. They also act in tandem with the shallow truncated dimples around the equator to generate lower drag, which combined with the lower lift means the ball will have a straighter and slightly lower trajectory.
The Polara Self-Correcting Technology™ is turned on by simply pointing the side stamp arrow at the target. In this configuration the ball will correct up to 75% of a hook or slice. When the side stamp arrow is pointed perpendicular to the target (90 degrees off set from the target) the ball will then fly like a normal golf ball and in this configuration golfer will be able to draw or fade the ball.
Is there a guarantee on the Polara golf ball?
Yes. If you are not completely satisfied with its performance, simply return the unused balls, in the original box and we will refund your purchase* less postage.
* based on number of balls returned unused
Does the golf ball have to be aligned a certain way for it to correct hooks and slices?
Yes, it must be aligned with the side stamp arrow pointed towards your target for the Self-Correcting Technology™ to perform at its highest level.
Does the Polara golf ball perform in terms of distance?
Under some conditions the Original Polara golf ball with up to 75% flight correction, will play slightly shorter and under some conditions it will play slightly longer (a lot of balls are like this). However, we created the new XD & XDS Polara golf ball to give you the same if not greater distance than the leading tour quality balls. This extra distance benefit comes with up to 50% flight correction. Something no other brand can offer.
If I hit a slice the ball goes straight. If I hit it straight will it curve?
The Polara golf ball will go straight if you hit a straight shot, no matter how the Polara golf ball is oriented. Unlike slice or hook-correcting golf clubs that impart an anti-slice or anti-hook bias when you hit the ball straight, the Polara golf ball has no such bias. When you hit a Polara golf ball straight, it goes straight.
Will the Polara ball curve when I putt?
The Polara golf ball will putt like any other ball.
Where has the Polara golf ball been tested? And what were the results?
Our R&D Testing has shown every time that there is no other golf ball that even comes close to the slice and hook correcting ability of the Polara self correcting golf balls. Additionally, the Polara golf ball was tested in July 2010 by the leading independent golf testing laboratory located in San Diego, CA. This is the same Golf Laboratory used to perform studies for Golf Digest, Golf Magazine, etc. The test was designed and supervised by an independent expert, Richard A. Levine, PhD, Professor of Statistics at San Diego State University.
The results of the testing were striking: The Polara golf ball corrected hooks and slices by up to 75%.
What is a non-conforming golf ball?
Conforming and non-conforming refers to the USGA Rules of Golf. Products that are non-conforming are prohibited from play in a golf Tournament that adheres to the USGA Rules of Golf. For instance, you could not play the Polara golf ball in the US Open Tournament. However, there is no problem playing with non-conforming equipment when you are just playing golf for enjoyment.
Why would I want to use any other ball?
If you have trouble hitting the ball straight, then there is no other ball that will better correct hooks and slices. No other ball even comes close!
Can I “work the ball”, i.e. fade or draw the ball?
When the side stamp arrow is pointed at your target and the Polara Self-Correcting Technology™ is turned on it is very difficult to draw or fade the ball.
When the side stamp arrow is pointed perpendicular to the target (90 degrees off set from the target) the golfer will be able to draw or fade the ball.
When the side stamp arrow is in between these two orientations the ball is not quite as easy to draw or fade as it is in the perpendicular orientation.
Does the ball have a hard feel?
Both balls have fairly soft feel. The Ultimate Straight model is a 2-piece construction with a soft 65 compression core and feels about as soft as the Ultimate Straight XS 3-piece model that has a harder core, but softer cover.
Does the ball fly higher or lower than a normal ball?
When the side stamp arrow is pointed at your target, the ball is positioned to take advantage of the preferred spin axis and low-lift aerodynamics – both of which act to correct and minimize hooks and slices. The low-lift aerodynamics cause the ball to take a lower trajectory towards the target. For most golfers a lower trajectory also means longer roll.
When the side stamp arrow is pointed perpendicular to the target (90 degrees off set from the target) the ball will then fly with normal-lift and will thus have a higher trajectory. In this configuration, the golfer will also be able to draw or fade the ball.
What is the difference between the “Ultimate Straight” and the “Ultimate Straight XS” golf balls?
Both correct hooks and slices by up to 75%. However, the Ultimate Straight XS model is a 3-piece construction with a slightly softer cover and thus has a little more stopping control on greens. The Ultimate Straight model is a 2-piece construction.The new Polara "XD" & "XDS" give you greater distance with a flight correction factor up to 50%. Now you can hit as far or farther than the leading tour quality balls & still benefit from our patented flight correction technology!
