The new footgolf ball’s prototype called Ammada born in Argentina did well on it’s exam. Matias Perrone have broken a record with it, and won a tournament. After the good test result everyone may meet the more accurate ball in the first stage of the Pro-Am FootGolf tour in May.
Christian Otero has been playing footgolf for about three years. He noticed, the ball, which the Argentine footgolfers play, the Adidas Speedcell is quicker and flies further than the normal ones used in football, but not as accurate as it is needed.
He said: ‘It gives you power but not accuracy. It flies a lot in the air for example. So we made an agreement one of the best ball factories in the world to develop this project. We had a lot of tests with 50 different balls with different characteristics. We had to combine the best attributes. We are almost there to get the ball we wanted.’
Matias Perrone have tried the prototype, and won the tournament with that ball.
He added: ‘I have made a record with it. I think we are on a good way to create the best ball for footgolf. But I think it is just a part of the succes. The reasons of a good score are the ball, the mind and the legs. ‘
It is said that the new ball is not going to be more expensive than the old ones, but there will be available types for the professional and amateur footgolfers. The test period is almost over, so Christian Otero hopes, they can send it to the factories. The debut can be on the first stage of the Pro-Am tour in the United States in May.
