Air flow ball


Air flow ball

Air flow balls are small, plastic balls, often used in physical training because of their many parallel holes, which help reduce backspin and increase drag, thus hampering the ability to travel long distances. Also, the light plastic shell cuts down on damage to other objects when the ball hits them, making them safe for recreation in urban and sub-urban areas.

Other Uses

Air flow balls can also be used in golf practice, when they are roughly the size of a golf ball, but the harder you hit them, the more drag is created, so they are safe for golf training in your own home.
