Jim Smith exactly,I was curious how a ball that hard would fly so far. Compression is one of the reasons the ball flys so far, so a harder ball wouldn’t have that bounce or compression off the face.

Golf balls are designed to compress on impact storing energy and then release off the face of the club or iron. Professional golfers use a harder ball (less compression) because they have the power and club head speed to compress those balls. An amateur watches the ads telling him how far the harder ball goes and runs out and spends the money buying them only to see that they don’t go as far. Most amateurs do not have the club head speed or power that a pro has so should be using a softer “lower compression “ ball. Watch a slo mo video of a golf ball being hit and you will see exactly what I mean. As you just proved, these Nitro balls are so hard that you can’t get enough compression and then recoil to literally “spring” the ball off the club. Watch a hockey player hit a slap shot in slo mo....his stick will bend, storing energy and then release that energy to propel the puck off the blade of the stick at over 100 miles an hour.

The GC Quad Data thing is totally crap... you hit the middle line on the wall but the ball flies 50 feet away from the middle line in the simulation... why ????

The Nitro balls are slightly smaller than the regulations allows. This would let the ball travel farther because of less drag.
Jon Candy
Jon Candy - 17 days ago
It's pretty stupid to think that comparing two balls in a simulator isn't an accurate way of testing.. the simulator removes all the variables and calculates height, loft, ball speed, and formulates a distance based on that. People's assumption that it will just "cut through the wind" and go further is just total rubbish.. no amount of space age dimples will make up for a 60 yard difference outside.. I wouldn't even trust anyone's opinion who actually bought these balls (other than a known professional), because no decent avid golfer would play an illegal no name ball.

Random question for you Rick... I’ve been on trackman enough to feel confident in these numbers but I don’t really understand the reason behind them. I carry my 7 iron around 170-175 which is a little longer than what you mention here, but my driver numbers are closer to 270 carry. What swing dynamics would lead to longer iron numbers but shorter with the driver?

If I was going to buy an illegal ball, I'd want it to go straighter, not longer. All a longer golf ball would do for me is make it go farther into the weeds.

I think it may be that these balls actually help the low swing speed golfer. Just my guess though. You're probably too good for an illegal ball.
Riley Tech
Riley Tech - 29 days ago
The simulator only measures ball speed and impact force for like 5 feet. Balls slow down differently because the dimples create different amounts of air turbulence around the ball. That turbulence lessens drag, so some balls will fly farther. Try it outside.

I knew the outcome before you started. We guys tried these out years ago and it was a joke, much the same results as you got. Just for fun I hit an old balata ball and then hit this one, the balata went much further, they are junk.

I have two thoughts about this test. 1, being the use of the simulator. It can't pick up the airflow around the ball. The laser's tract speed and arch and spin. Not how the air flows around the ball. As well as if the inside of the ball is much like a superball. The bounce after the landing may be greater. Which will add distance. This tells me to take it to a driving range and see how far you can hit them. 2, You may have misinterpreted the meaning of the "Go ahead and cheat", on the box. It might mean have your opponents use this ball, and you use the regulation balls.

Test this in real life.
The simulator is making a LOT of assumptions about the properties of the ball, like its mass, size, etc. This is really not a good way to try to test different golf balls.

Probably the problem is that you smashed the nitro ball on the symulator and the mashine count like a normal ball you should try again on the driving rang or on the course

Did you honestly think it would show a difference on a simulator? The simulator doesn’t know the ball is illegal and it uses the physics of a normal ball.
