RZN Golf Balls are back on the market, with the former Nike model now a brand in its own right having been launched by the former developers.
The RZN brand was formed in 2006 and operated on research and development relationship for Nike, helping to win more than 50 professional tournaments including four majors during a time in Tiger Woods’ bag.
Not mentioning Nike specifically, despite the fact they pulled out of golf in 2016, RZN say: “Since our customer made its strategic business decision to transition out of golf equipment in August of 2016, we have made our commitment to take over the production of golf balls and keep supplying premium golf balls to golfers of every level.”
RZN HS-Tour Golf Ball
The RZN HS ball has been designed for golfers with a high swing speed. That is where the HS name comes from.
The HS model is a four piece ball, and benefits from a soft urethane cover and a 3D resin outer core. The HS Tour ball has 13,558 micro-dimples and provides the kind of spin levels desired by tour players.
RZN MS-Tour Golf Ball
The MS-Tour ball gets its name from the player it is aimed at, one with a medium swing speed.
The MS ball is a three-piece ball with a soft urethane cover and the lowest compression of the tour range. It features RZN’s 3D speed lock technology to maximise distance without compromising on the soft feel.
RZN Distance Golf Ball
The Distance ball from RZN is another three piece model and, as the name suggests, is all about maximising distance from all shots – whether from the tee or with irons.
The Distance model has a tough and resilient ionomer cover to pierce the air and ensure the maximum distance. You still get a soft feel around the greens.
RZN Speed Golf Ball
The RZN Speed ball combines distance and feel impressively for a two piece value golf ball.
The core is wider than in other models and features rubber compositions, while the ionomer cover is strong and durable. You can expect low long game spin with the Speed model, coupled with a high trajectory.
What happened to Nike RZN Golf Balls?
Nike decided to stop selling golf equipment in 2016 and instead concentrate on clothing and shoes. As a result, the Nike RZN ball was no longer produced and slowly dwindled out of circulation.
The RZN model has returned with the company behind the production of the balls now producing them and retailing. The ball is the same, minus the famous Nike tick. There are four models under the new RZN name.
Which is the best RZN Golf Ball?
The HS-Tour is the premium model of the RZN range. It is the only four piece ball. The MS-Tour and Distance balls are both three-piece construction options, while the two-piece Speed ball is the cheapest and most value of the models.
How much do RZN Golf Balls cost?
The RZN balls range from $34.95/£26.00 for a dozen of HS-Tour balls to $11.95/£9.00 for a 12-pack of Speed balls.
