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, play the ball "as it lies" or re-adjust 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!

Self-Correcting Technology

Hitting the golf ball straight is obviously a huge part of the game. We researched, developed and 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.
