Nike Golf have utilised their innovative RZN technology to create what they are calling a revolutionary ball for amateurs with the new ONE RZN.
The ONE RZN is the latest edition to the RZN family, featuring the same larger, softer RZN core found in the Nike 20XI tour ball, but with a slightly different formulation. This formulation is dialed and designed for increased distance when it counts.
RZN replaces conventional rubber cores with a highly neutralised polymer that’s faster and lighter, engineered to produce more distance off the tee, a straighter ball flight and increased control around the greens.
“With ONE RZN, we are able to bring revolutionary advances in golf balls to a wider range of athletes,” said Rock Ishii, Nike Golf’s Product Development Director for golf balls. “There’s not a product out there in this category of golf ball that has technology of this magnitude.”
Like the biggest ball on the market, Titleist's Pro V1, the ONE RZN will be available in two versions, ONE RZN and ONE RZN X. While both balls deliver faster speed, higher MOI and steeper spin slope, the ONE RZN X is a little firmer. This means it will travel further on a more penetrating flight, for players with a faster head speed or steeper angle of attack.
