A number of different dimple designs are used on the ball to maximisie distance, even on mishits. A feel mantle softens impact feel, while a distance mantle improves the intial velocity for added distance.

Nike One Tour golf balls - £45 per dozen

A 'Power Transfer Layer' under the cover brings the inner mantles into play for long shots, and helps to produce high levels of short-iron spin.

Srixon Z-Star golf balls - £44 per dozen

Its extremely large core has a soft-inner area, which becomes firmer towards the outside. The latter reduces spin on long shots while the soft-inner area improves feel.
