Microballoons in your golf ball?

Recommended Posts

Ha.   Was just looking over a 2014  Golf catalog full of goodies but rather unknown in USA.  KASCO is big in Japan, all of Asia.  Nice catalog and i read that one model of ball has microballons embedded in the core.  Hmm.  Could be good as i need more carry.

Lots of tees too. And balls of many colors. Substantially more info than many USA golf manufactures catalogs, IMO.

I imagine "microballoons" just means really, really tiny holes. If the core has holes that means it's less dense, so more weight is shifted to the outside of the ball. The generally means it'll spin less.

We use to use micro balloons to shape parts of race cars back in the 60's, nothing new. They do trap air somewhat, I don't see how they would benefit a golf ball..?
