HOW TO USE THE SELF-CORRECTING, ANTI-SLICE POLARA GOLF BALL
~ When the arrow is pointing at your target, the ball will significantly reduce any slice or hook in your ball flight.
~ From the tee, simply point the arrow on the ball directly at your target, or line it up with the center of the fairway.
~ From the fairway, you have the choice of playing the ball "as it lies" or re-adjusting the ball orientation so the arrow again points at your target.
~ If you play the ball "as it lies", with the arrow in any arbitary orientation, the ball will fly like a normal golf ball.
Point the ARROW towards your target, and let it rip!
Hitting the golf ball straight is obviously a huge part of the game. We've come up with a patented dimple pattern which results in up to 75% reduction in hooks and slices, improving your golf game, making the game even more enjoyable.
The secret behind our self correcting antislice golf ball technology is all in the dimple pattern. Our accuracy golf balls have shallower dimples around the equator and deeper dimples on each pole. When a Polara golf ball is flying in its preferred orientation with the alignment arrow pointing directly towards the target (this orientation is also known as “poles horizontal” or PH) the Polara ball exhibits significantly lower lift (and lower drag as well) than a normal golf ball. This reduction in lift translates directly into a reduction of the force tending to cause the ball to curve from a straight trajectory, resulting in a hook or slice.
The Polara’s unique dimple pattern also results in a moment of inertia (MOI) asymmetry. By creating an antislice golf ball with a dimple pattern that has less dimple volume in a band around the equator and by removing more dimple volume from the polar regions adjacent to the low-dimple-volume band, the weight distribution of the ball is modified and the resulting ball exhibits an MOI difference between the poles-horizontal (PH) and other orientations. This results in a “preferred” spin axis going through the poles of the ball. This phenomenon is similar to the preferred spin axis of a gyroscope. This preferred spin-axis tends to reduce hooks or slices when the golf ball is struck in a manner which would normally cause “side-spin” or tilting of the spin-axis.
These two factors, lower lift and a preferred spin-axis, results in the Polara accuracy golf balls flying significantly straighter than any other ball on the market when hit with a hook or slice-inducing swing.
BALL FLIGHT DISPERSION
Of course when you're talking about straight golf balls, the bottom line is how straight they go relative to the competition. Polara continuously compares our antislice golf ball's flight with the industry leaders to make sure the Polara accuracy golf ball performs up to our high standards and as advertised. One of the ways we characterize our ball's performance is by using a golf ball hitting robot so we can make sure that we are applying the identical swing time after time.
The chart below shows one of our latest product tests. The robot was set-up to hit a 95 mile-per-hour slice swing and 3 different golf balls were tested. As can be seen below the results are dramatic and conclusive. A leading competitor, shown in blue, can be seen slicing significantly to the right by a good 80 feet. Our Ultimate Straight and XD balls are shown in red and orange and can be seen to be much straighter, slicing only about 21 feet and 42 feet, respectively.

A PERFECT GOLF BALL FOR EVERY GOLFER
We understand that not every recreational golfer is going to need, or want, the exact same self-correcting golf ball. So, our engineers have spent countless hours designing 4 different antislice golf balls. We currently offer our newest designs, the XD and XDS (up to 50% correction and a bit more distance), as well as our original products, the Ultimate Straight and Ultimate Straight XS (up to 75% correction).
POLARA XD (EXTRA DISTANCE) & XDS (EXTRA DISTANCE & SPIN) GOLF BALLS
Our newest golf improvement products, the XD and the XDS are antislice golf balls designed for the recreational golfer who struggles with hooks and slices off the tee, but perhaps hits a fair number of straight shots as well, or whose hooks or slices are not particularly severe. For this player, we’ve designed the XD and XDS to correct up to 50% of hooks and slices, so if your slice typically goes 60 feet to the right with a normal ball, this ball will only slice about 30 feet. As with our Ultimate Straight balls, both the XD and XDS each have the exact same dimple patterns so both are equally “self correcting”. The XD is a 2-piece construction, while the XDS is a 3-piece construction designed for higher spin into the green off of short irons.
Because these balls were designed to be less corrective than our Ultimate Straight, we were able to raise aerodynamic lift just a bit, so these balls will fly higher in general, and ball flight should be fairly typical with your standard driver. The resulting ball flight will result in a higher trajectory and longer carry distances than our Ultimate Straight golf balls – hence the designation “XD” for Extra Distance (relative to our Ultimate Straight).
POLARA ULTIMATE STRAIGHT & ULTIMATE STRAIGHT XS GOLF BALLS
These are our straightest balls and are designed for the recreational golfer whose main problem is significant and persistent hooking or slicing off the tee. These self-correcting golf balls are designed to correct hooks and slices by as much as 75%! This means that if you slice a regular golf ball 100 feet, the exact same swing with our antislice golf ball would only slice about 25 feet – improving your golf game and leaving you in the fairway instead of the rough. Both the Ultimate Straight and Ultimate Straight XS have the exact same dimple patterns so both are equally “self correcting”. The difference between these two antislice golf balls is that the Ultimate Straight is a 2-piece construction consisting of a central core and an outer cover, while the Ultimate Straight XS is a 3-piece construction consisting of a central core, a boundary layer, and the outer cover. The 3-piece construction allows the XS accuracy golf ball to have higher spin off of short irons, resulting in more feel and “bite” around the greens.
A key component of how these balls fly so straight is that they exhibit less aerodynamic lift than other golf balls. This has the nice benefit of reducing hooks and fixing slices, but will also result in lower than normal ball flight. Because of this lower than normal ball flight, we recommend that you use a driver with more loft than normal (11 degrees or higher) off the tee. The Polara Advantage 12 degree driver is often the perfect match with the Polara Ultimate Straight ball - gives straight flight and awesome distance!
