REVIEW: OnCore Golf Balls
The most interesting golf ball I may have tested so far is the CALIBER ball from OnCore. It was most interesting because of the hollow metal ball in the core instead of a typical rubber compound. “The CALIBER golf ball features a 392 dimple pattern, an 80 compression, that comes from the unification of our .9 inch hollow metal core and our SoftCell technology around the mantle layer.” “As a result of our .9 inch hollow metal core, when the ball is struck you get significant rifle spin while reducing sidespin, allowing the ball to travel along a straight trajectory similar to a bullet leaving the barrel.”
There is a distinctive metal ting when hitting the CALIBER. It sounded like muted metal on metal when they are hit. Not as much of this sound with the putter or wedges, but because sound and feel are linked together, it was something I didn’t associate with hitting a golf ball. The numbers were not as bad as the sound of the ball. It was about average for the driver, but a bit shorter than a normal 7 iron. I have to wonder if this is really just a gimmick more than anything because there are no other balls like this in the market today. I understand the idea behind the concept, but the sound was too much to overcome for me to put this in play as my gamer.
OnCore makes 3 very distinct models: ELIXR, CALIBER, and AVANT. While the Caliber might have been their original design for straighter shots, the ELIXR is the ball that has gained attention with better players. If you want super soft, the AVANT is for you and at the other end of the spectrum is the metal feeling CALIBER.
