Technical highlights

Flowport™: Golf ball aerodynamics theory points the way towards lower

distortion reflex ports. Dimples improve the way the air flows over the surface of

any object. In the case of reflex ports, they offer a significant improvement over

simply flaring the port ends in reducing air flow turbulence at each end of the

port; so you get less chuffing noise and less compression at high sound levels.
