UNEVEN PAINT CAN NEGATIVELY AFFECT BALL PERFORMANCE
As seen above, unevenly applied paint is visible under black light. This poorly applied paint creates heavy spots that may negatively impact ball performance, including ball trajectory and distance.
Staff Model R
Like Staff Model, Staff Model R is a Tour-caliber, 4-piece urethane golf ball that also delivers unmatched precision, speed and consistency. It’s also the first golf ball to feature an unpainted urethane cover that delivers a lower flight trajectory, and “grabs” the wedge surface for enhanced greenside spin. This is the ball for players who demand the utmost in confidence and consistency. This is performance perfected.
EVENLY APPLIED PAINT IMPROVES PERFORMANCE AND ENHANCES ACCURACY
The chart above illustrates how a poorly painted urethane ball can be negatively affect during flight, causing up to 10 yards of dispersion. This means your precisely struck ball may not perform precisely. To address these negative effects and improve performance, we've implemented a finely controlled paint application process for consistent performance and supreme shot-making confidence.
TESTING PROVED IT
During robotic testing and play tests with our Advisory Staff, unpainted Staff Model prototypes were evaluated next to our painted Staff Model balls. These ‘raw’ versions of the ball performed so well, delivered such exceptional precision and overall performance that our advisory staff demanded that we develop an unpainted version for production, and Staff Model R was born.
BADGES OF HONOR
Our bold decision to feature an unpainted urethane cover does not come without compromise. It may stain more quickly than a painted cover, but this has zero impact on performance. Would you exchange a grass stain for more than half a stroke a round of accuracy? Yeah, we would too.
PURE SPEED & SPIN
Lower trajectory and reduced dispersion of Staff Model R makes it our longest ball off a driver, while the unpainted urethane cover offers additional spin on wedge shots.
V-COR FOR EFFORTLESS DISTANCE
A unique core composition magnifies energy to generate maximum velocity off the club face for greater distance performance.
4-LAYER SPIN & CONTROL
More layers. Higher spin. Better control. Unmatched distance and shot-shaping off the tee. Tour-level workability on the fairways. Predictable stability on approach shots and exceptional control around the green.
3SIX2 SEAMLESS URETHANE COVER
Our seamless 362-dimple pattern smooths airflow around the ball for a lower ball trajectory and maximum distance performance.
