Did I ever tell you that I bruise easily?

Well it seems we have, inadvertently, developed a golf ball which tells you when you've hit it too hard.

During testing of spiral ball in Colorado, our golfers noticed a discolouration on the cover, just like a bruise.

A technical explanation could be when printing the spiral pattern on the core prior to moulding the cover, the printed areas on the core change the texture and create a slight increase in diameter, which appears to affect the adhesion of the moulded cover.

Possible solutions could be to spray an adhesive over the core prior to moulding the cover or print the spiral pattern on the cover underneath a final lacquer coating.

This all goes to show the importance of testing your balls.
