Volvik, the #1 Color Golf Ball on Tour, announced today the company will launch their new ultra-soft VIBE 3-piece Urethane golf balls at the 2016 PGA Merchandise Show January 27.
In one of their most exciting golf ball launches for 2016, Volvik believes they have made a Urethane golf ball for every skill level. According to their R&D team, combining an extremely low compression mixed with high grade Urethane makes this 3-piece ball the perfect “soft” option for tour players, advanced golfers and beginners alike.
V.I.B.E. stands for Very Intelligent Ball Engineering and vaults Volvik into the surging soft urethane market with what they believe is even more of a performer than the competition in this new niche.
Combining a “players” ball with a soft feel off the club face gives the VIBE the perfect combination of distance and straightness off the tee shots due to a low driver spin.
“This is by far the softest ball that Volvik has ever produced,” said Jon Claffey, National Director of Sales and Marketing of Volvik USA. “The goal for 2016 was to make sure that Volvik provided a golf ball for every player type and the VIBE was the only category we were missing. When we asked golfers what they wanted to see, they clearly responded; SOFT, SOFT, SOFT! But they also wanted a tour Urethane cover and all the distance and greenside spin that a 3-piece ball provides. We spent significant time and went through many changes, but we finally came up with a ball that we feel can fit every player type at an affordable price.”
The VIBE is a 3-piece, 65-compression ball that has tested as one of the longest golf balls on the market today, especially for slower to medium swing speeds to gain extreme distance. While other manufacturers claim lower compressions, Volvik’s testing confirmed that 65 is a compression that every level of player can compress, receive the benefits of an ultra-soft feel while still getting the distance and greenside spin of a true tour quality golf ball. The 336-dimple pattern ensures an enhanced flight time, optimal greenside spin and the short game control that you would expect from a Urethane 3-piece golf ball.
“In our quest to make our softest ball ever, we discovered a few important elements,” said Claffey. “One, there is such a thing as too soft. A marshmallow feeling ball will be rejected by fast and slower swing speeds alike. Two, everyone loves a ball that checks up properly on the green and this is an area where many strokes are lost. Third and most importantly, a low driver spin that keeps you straighter is the key to making the world’s best performing golf ball. We feel we have perfectly combined these elements in the VIBE and look forward to having as many golfers as possible test the ball this season so they can see it for themselves.”
