Mizuno has just unveiled two new soft compression balls that will help to boost your distance thanks to innovative dimple patterns.
The Japanese brand is looking to capitalise on the successful release of its premium RB TOUR and RB TOUR X golf balls last year with these new additions to its line-up.
The name comes courtesy of the unique 566 micro-dimple design featured on both balls.
This design is helps to delay the rate of descent past the apex of the flight, thereby increasing hang time and maximising distance.
Mizuno’s softest compression ball combines the 566 micro-dimple design with a large, soft compression core to produce a stable, straighter ball flight, while the Ionomer cover offers impressive greenside feel and durability for a golf ball in this category.
The RB566 will best suit players with mid to slower swing speeds looking for a soft feel and maximum distance.
It is also available in yellow and orange for the coloured golf ball lovers among you.
The RB566V features a 3-piece construction for maximum speed at launch. Like the RB556, it showcases a 566 D-dimple design which has been engineered to delay the rate of descent past the apex of the flight, but the V delivers a slightly higher launch angle.
Soft compression with a 3-piece construction and an Ionomer cover, the RB566V is nimble around the greens while the high-energy Butadiene core also enhances feel and improves velocity.
It’s a ball designed to suit just about every golfer out there.
“We can now produce even softer compression balls that prolong their flight through aerodynamics. A softer core works to elevate trajectory and straighten flight – and now there’s no trade off in distance,” says Norikazu Ninomiya of Mizuno Japan.
Price: RB566 £25(per dozen), RB566V £35 (per dozen)
