Pro V1 Technology & Manufacturing

460410

DESCRIPTION
Pro V1 mold cavities are used to the form the Urethane Elastomer cover and dimple pattern on each ball. Tens of thousands of mold cavities are needed to supply the Pro V1 and Pro V1x urethane casting lines. In order to achieve ball-to-ball consistency, it is crucial that every mold cavity produces the same result. To guarantee this level of precision, the Operations team has always manufactured the cavities and the tooling used to make the cavities (called “hobs”) in-house. An investment in new equipment to make the master hobs for 2017 Pro V1 and Pro V1x provides even tighter tolerances. This advancement in hob production combined with new dimple designs produce new Pro V1 and Pro V1x models that deliver a more aerodynamically consistent flight.
