Making use of a Trackman inside, whether honing your swing, undergoing a sophisticated club fitting, or “playing” simulator games, capturing the ball spin rate has always been a measurement of what is considered unacceptable variability and error. The amount of spin effects other important factors such as carry distance, descent angle and trajectory height.
Spin numbers are important especially for better players to maximize distance and control and until now the best way to ensure spin rates reported by the Trackman unit indoors were accurate was to paste small, shiny markers on the ball. Now Titleist has come up with a better solution working with engineers from Trackman by adding radar reflective strips between the cover and the mantle of the two most played balls on the professional tours, Pro V1 and Pro V1x.
“Titleist Pro V1 and Pro V1x RCT golf balls combine the game’s greatest combination of speed, spin, and feel with new technology that more consistently captures precision performance and golf ball data from TrackMan units used in an indoor setting,” said Jeremy Stone, Vice President, Titleist Golf Ball Marketing. “We have worked closely with TrackMan for more than two years to optimize this embedded radar reflective, patent pending technology. The result is a reliably strong ‘signal’ that enables spin capture on all shots.”
Tagged as RCT for Radar Capture Technology, the new Pro V1 RCTs and Pro V1x RCT will be in stores Nov. 3, 2021, for $64.99 per dozen.
