The RB566 and RB566V represent Mizuno’s next generation of soft compression golf balls.
“We can now produce even softer compression balls that prolong their flight through aerodynamics. A softer core works to elevate trajectory and straighten flight and now there’s no trade-off in distance,” said Norikazu Ninomiya of Mizuno Japan.
The RB566 is Mizuno’s softest compression ball. Its 566 micro-dimple design is used to delay the rate of descent past the apex of the flight, thereby maximizing distance. The large, soft compression core combines stable, straighter ball flight while the Ionomer cover offers enhanced greenside feel and durability.
The RB566 will suit players with mid to slower swing speeds in warm conditions and players of all swing speeds in colder, or soft ground conditions.
The RB566V has a three-piece construction for more velocity at launch. Like the RB556, it showcases a 566 D-dimple design which has been engineered to delay the rate of descent past the apex of the flight, but the V delivers a slightly higher launch angle.
Soft compression with a three-piece construction and Ionomer cover, the RB566V is nimble around the greens while the high-energy Butadiene core also enhances feel and improves velocity. It’s a ball designed to suit all players in all conditions.
They join the RB Tour and RB Tour X in Mizuno’s golf ball line-up.
Suggested retail price per dozen is 29.99 (RB566) and $39.99 (RB566V) Cdn.
