Almost Golf Balls Simulator Review Using Flightscope Mevo+ – WOW!
Users that requested this REJOICE! I finally took Almost Golf Balls and the Flightscope Mevo Plus and did the review for you! Do they work? You have to watch to find out! I will be honest the Almost Golf Balls are awesome for chipping indoors but I would have never even thought of hitting them on the radar based launch monitor Flightscope Mevo+ without the request.
About AlmostGolf aka Almost Golf Balls
The Almost Golf Ball is the first neighborhood safe practice ball that performs like a real golf ball
Gain more confidence
You can practice anytime, anywhere
FLys approximately one-third the distance of a standard golf ball
Hit a draw or a fade
The almostGOLF ball is perfectly balanced for true spin, trajectory and accuracy. Its unique cross-linked foaming and internal pressure results in a .32 COR rating, approximately one third of a traditional golf ball. As a result, the almostGOLF ball compresses slightly upon impact just like a real golf ball, giving it real ‘pop’ off the club face and long-lasting durability. But because of its special core construction, the almostGOLF ball is extremely soft, making it backyard safe.
