For the long run, we’d take a look at any new ball for oil absorption and something better than 45 minutes could be thought-about “Urethane-Like.” Any ball within the Urethane-like class would then must be a minimal of 78.0HD. New polyester/plastic balls will largely probably fall into this class as properly, however shouldn’t have any concern being above the 78.0HD minimal. Any new ball with an oil absorption of lower than 45 minutes would then fall into the usual class and be allowed to make the most of the 73.0HD minimal.
