How Quality of the Golf Ball Quality is Preserved

 

There are tons of studies to prove that there is no difference between recycled/refurbished balls and new ones. Yet, the name that it comes with confuses many potential buyers and they end up buying new balls and end up losing more money in the process.

The main concern is the quality of the ball; how will it perform in the field, and how would be the flight and the distance that it would cover. All these features of the golf ball depend on the quality of the recycled ball.

Let us tell you how we meet the quality standards at REGOLF.

 

Not all old balls stand the recycling process

 

The recycling process is a rigorous one and involves tough treatment added with a few quality tests. Many of the balls cannot stand these tests and thus are filtered away. Only those used balls that pass this filtering process are considered fit for recycling. Hence, the build quality and strength of the ball are kept intact while recycling the ball.

How golf balls are recycled at REGOLF?

 

Every golf ball recycling company has its own story. From just washing and packing to a full-fledged recycling process, multiple ways are followed. At REGOLF, we follow a professional process that involves rigorous filtering, sandblasting, painting, branding, and packing.

The main component of the recycling process is sandblasting. This removes the outer layer of the old balls altogether. Once the outer layer is removed, the inner core is checked for quality and strength. Then, a new outer cover is put on and painted. This new paint is then polished to give it a glossy look and feel. The final stage is the branding of the recycled ball where the original brand of the ball is printed.

Once the recycling process is complete, the balls are packed in beautiful, biodegradable bags.

How good is a recycled golf ball?

For recreational golfers, the difference between a recycled golf ball and a new one is unnoticeable.

Even the professional players tend to like recycled balls more for their practices as the difference is negligible.

The trick lies in buying from a reputed seller and also doing a bit of research on the recycling process that the seller is following.

Overdoing the recycling process

A few recyclers overdo the process with steps like burning the balls or clipping away more parts than just the outer layer of the ball. Some companies, while trying to maximize the number of recycled golf balls, might overlook the strength, and shape of the core.

These are the things that put a stigma on recycled balls. When the balls that are overdone, don't perform that well, they impact the whole golf ball recycling market.

At Re.golf, we go through every single golf ball, fully test it and inspect it during the recycling process. That’s why we offer 100% free shipping and free returns on all orders. Not a bad deal considering the amount of money you’re saving!
