almostGOLF Point3 Practice Balls
The almostGOLF Point3 Golf Ball is the first first neighborhood safe practice ball that performs like a real golf ball. This means you can practice anytime, anywhere. Thanks to its internal pressure and cross linked construction, the almostGOLF ball fades, draws and spins-- just like a real golf ball!-- but its completely neighborhood safe and backyard friendly. Now you can practice every day in the park, on campus, at the beach or in the yard!
The almostGOLF ball is perfectly balanced for true spin, trajectory and accuracy. Its unique cross-linked foaming and internal pressure results in a .32 COR rating, approximately one third of a traditional golf ball. As a result, the almostGOLF ball compresses slightly upon impact just like a real golf ball, giving it real 'pop' off the club face and long-lasting durability. But because of its special core construction, the almostGOLF ball is extremely soft, making it backyard safe.
Hit it straight, play a fade, or shape a draw.
The almostGOLF ball's true-flight characteristics allow you to accurately assess your golf swing and ball striking. No more second-guessing whether you're hitting the ball well because the almostGOLF ball responds just like the real thing. In simulator tests the almostGOLF ball has the same initial velocity, spin rate and launch angle of a traditional golf ball. It looses speed until it hits its apex, then it comes down softly and safely.
The Coefficient of Restitution or Bounce affect the reaction off the club face and this is where CO2 pressure of the almostGOLF ball set it apart from all other practice balls. Traditional golf balls are made with compression molded superball rubber and a skin. As a result they bounce off the club face with amazing speed and velocity. To bring that same bounce without bringing the danger, we had to create bounce, without the weight. We accomplished this with thousands of bubbles that are pressurized inside the ball, so that when you strike the almostGOLF ball, the bubbles compress, then release, just like a superball, but without the distance and danger. Most importantly, unlike other practice balls, the COR rating allows realistic launch angle and spin off the club face to accurately diagnose swing flaws.
The almostGOLF ball travels approximately one-third the distance of a normal golf ball so it's perfect for backyard practice. All club distances correlate to actual distance with a regulation ball. No longer do you have to soften your golf swing because the ball can't handle force, velocity or resistance
