minigolf BALLS – PRO
The designation PRO is for balls that are modified for competitive game. They differ firstly in surface, bounce and hardness, and secondly according to their size – small (K), middle (M) and big (G). These are important parameters that predetermine the behaviour of the ball on the track and their suitability for the type of game.
In terms of surface, we distinguish the following types of balls with their characteristic, internationally acknowledged marking:
- Unvarnished balls – R – rough balls, with no surface treatment
- Unvarnished balls very rough – RR
- Balls with flat paint – Lm
- Balls with classical paint – L
- Balls with water-based paint – X
- Balls with flat water-based paint – Xm
Jump of the ball indicates capability of the ball to bounce; we distinguish on the scale from 0 cm up to maximum of 85 cm (according to WMF standards). In case of rubber balls, this property is influenced by surrounding temperature significantly. That is the reason behind professional players trying to stabilize behaviour of the ball by means of cooling or heating. Table values are measured at 22 °C and spring-back from 1 m above hard base (for example concrete).
Ball hardness is measured in Shore degrees. The higher the value will be, the harder the ball. Soft balls are prone to deformation and cause a different spring-back than balls with higher level of hardness. Each track requires different approach and therefore wide spectrum of balls with different hardness is appreciated.
At present, we are producing our own professional balls under the brand of SV Golf and Willert. In addition to them, our standard portfolio is enriched annually by special series for foreign minigolf clubs and players with whom we like cooperating. Hundreds of custom-made balls from all over the world are the result of that cooperation.
