The Polara Story
Two scientists, Daniel Nepela and Fred Holmstrom, developed the original Polara golf ball. The Polara's dimple pattern was unique, having six rows of normal dimples on its equator, but very shallow dimples elsewhere. The asymmetrical dimple pattern was a breakthrough in aerodynamic design that helped the ball self-adjust its spin-axis during the flight and thus enabled the ball to correct slices and hooks in flight. The original Polara patent was filed Oct 2, 1972 and it issued June 25, 1974.

The Polara golf ball was first produced in 1975 by PGA/Victor, with sales starting in 1977. Because the Polara actually corrected hooks and slices it posted strong sales in its first year. However, after extensive testing, the USGA concluded that the Polara golf ball did correct hooks and slices and thus refused to approve the ball for tournament play, ruling that it wouldreduce the skill required to play golf. In 1978, the manufacturers sued the USGA on antitrust grounds.

As litigation wound its ways through the courts the USGA changed the 300 year old Rules of Golf by inserting the Symmetry Rule in 1981, requiring that a ball must essentially perform the same regardless of where on the ball's surface it is struck or how it is placed on the tee. The new USGA rule banned Polara golf balls from USGA sanctioned tournament play. Then in 1985 the USGA agreed to a settlement of $1.4M and the Polara ball was removed from the market, becoming a part of golf history.

In 2005 Pounce Sports purchased the rights to the original Polara golf ball and reintroduced it on a small scale. In 2009 Aero-X Golf, Inc. acquired the Polara technology. After extensive research and development, Aero-X Golf determined exactly how and why the original Polara ball corrected hooks and slices. With this understanding Aero-X Golf, Inc was able to improve upon the original Polara design.

In August 2010 Aero-X Golf, Inc. introduced two new and improved Polara golf balls with Self-Correcting Technology: The Polara Ultimate Straight 2-piece ball and the Polara Ultimate Straight XS 3-piece ball. Polara Golf uses the best available technology to create demonstrably better products that are not limited by anything other than the laws of physics. All of the Polara golf balls are designed for recreational golfers who want to take advantage of these technology improvements and enjoy the game more.

I talked to another golfer that tried them, he said the same thing.

For those of you that go out on the weekends for a relaxing game of golf and could use a little more accuracy and improved play, these are for you!

I normally hit a Srixon Soft Feel, my drives usually go about 220 yards, but as I said I slice.

I purchased these golf balls after a recommendation from a friend. After using them this past weekend at my local course, here is my take on these self-correcting golf balls.

One thing is for certain, these golf balls do reduce hook and slice. There is absolutely no doubt about it. I naturally hit a fade on most of my tee shots, and just watching the flight of the golf ball you can see that the Polara want's to start fading but after only 40 or 50 yards it stops dead in its track and goes straight as an arrow. The golf balls seem to roll much farther as a result, so some could even say that these are extra distance balls.

They even make a big difference with your irons from short range. When you turn the side-stamp of the ball perpendicular to the green and use a lofted iron within 120yds or so, the dimples create more backspin than a normal ball would. For the first time in my life, the golf ball stopped right where it landed and on occasion it even rolled backwards and sideways on the green. It made me feel like a better golfer.

For those of you that go out on the weekends for a relaxing game of golf and could use a little more accuracy and improved play, these are for you! They help me enjoy a morning or afternoon of golf even more.

I would not hesitate to buy another box, especially when Amazon is selling these for under $20 a dozen. Go for it!

These balls are a bit quirky. They definitely do what they are advertised to do. They go straight unless the golfer really hits a seriously bad shot. You can actually see them "correcting" the trajectory in mid-flight. So when I am having a slicing or hooking day, I quickly switch to the Polaras. However, they also are capable of delivering some odd results. For one thing, they are prone to dive down rather precipitously. Not sure what makes this happen. They also bounce and roll forever. This is good news on a well-hit drive; they bounce and roll and add serious yardage to a good shot. However, this is bad news when hitting to a green. I just stopped using them around greens. For example, if I hit a 100-yard shot with my pitching wedge as I usually do, the Polara will hit the green, bounce twice, and then roll for another 15 yards! This can seriously foul up one's strategy around greens.

Bottom line is that if you struggle with slices and hooks off the tee or the fairway, the Polaras will straighten out about 90% of your shots. But I recommend changing to a normal ball when you approach the green (or learn to significantly "undershoot" the greens). After trying the Polaras for about one month (about 10-12 rounds), I keep them in my bag to use on days when my drives and fairway shots are not going straight.

I'm a novice at golf. Haven't picked up a club in years. I decided to join a league to challenge myself in a different sport. The course I play at is narrow, with woods on either side of the fairway. My slice was horrible. I'd aim left of the fairway and it'd land right of it. I was easily shooting in the high 50's for 9. I'd be playing every drive from the rough or the woods. I ordered 2 dozen of these balls. I think I ordered too many. I havent lost a single ball yet. They really do work for keeping your driver straight. I will say this though, I lost about 20 yards on my drive, but I'll manage with that. These things really do work, they are very low flying. And since the course is wet, they arent rolling much, so hopefully later in the season I'll get back a few of those lost yards.

I'm a 16 handicap with a life long semi-rare death slice. When I don't turn my hands over on a drive or with a wood, people two holes are in imminent danger. My irons are fine - they rarely slice, I can chip and putt and my sand game is good. But if I REALLY try, I can literally slice a golf ball 90 degrees - 220 yards out and 80 yards right. It's an awesome Phil Mickelson-like skill for the 400 yard dog leg right holes because I'm 80 yards from the pin on a dry day but a fade is a tough shot for me because I can snap hook it just as far left when I over correct.

Welcome to middle of the road golf USA - moderate native ability and some craft but I do love the game and guys like me keep golf companies in business. To all the purists out there appalled by this sort of "technology", I've taken years of lessons from state amateur champs, PGA professionals and low handicap buddies - I've tried hard to fix this malady with professional help (like a lot of my bad habits). I can shoot 82 on a good day and 95+ on a really bad day on relatively tough private courses. I'll also bet that Jack Nicklaus thinks that ugly new white Taylor Made driver is pretty much a Polara ball with a handle.

Obviously, these balls are meant ONLY for screwing around or playing best ball with your buddies or messing with people (unless you have NO golf pride and are a tool by nature.) Using Polaras in leagues or any other sanctioned event is cheating, a doucher move and USGA illegal. On the fun side, I tried REALLY hard tonight on a very familiar course to make these balls slice and the best I could do was a 15 yard fade. They definitely do NOT go as far as a Titleist Pro V 1 and when I hit a Titleist pure, I can still hit it 260 yards, but many times I'm playing Daniel Boone looking for it in the woods.
