New Nike RZN Tour Black & Platinum Golf Balls Print

 

By Jason Bruno

Nike's new RZN TOUR Black & Platinum golf balls are available on Nike.com on 1/22 & in stores 1/29



The latest Nike premium Golf ball from creator Rock Ishi is an updated version of the TOUR Black and

Platinum golf balls. The Black is a low spin golf ball off the driver for better players, with tour like control

greenside. While both models are four piece, the Platinum is for those players looking to work the ball

and prefer more spin on full shots.


The latest RZN core is 10% larger than previous models, increasing ball speed from the previous model.

The new core is also lower compression for a softer feel, which has not been lost on the World No.2 Rory

McIlroy.

 

"The ball feels much softer, yet I've maintained my ball speed and even picked up

a few yards overall," said Rory McIlroy. "It's easily the best combination of distance

and feel I've ever played."

 

 

The new cover also has some changes, to go with 344 dimples the new model Black & Platinum feature

13,558 micro dimples to promote a more stable ball flight (below).

 

 


In our initial testing of the each new ball, you can immediately sense the input that Rory had on

the new models . . .especially the Platinum. Distance wise, it kept up with the industry leader's

best, and the feel with full shots and shortgame was as soft as any premium ball on the market.

The feel and performance of these new models are truly a significant upgrade from the previous

versions, so much so, that there's a great chance they'll be in my bag throughout 2016.
