What are refurbished golf balls -
Golf balls that have been cosmetically damaged, i.e a scuff to the paint work on the outer coating of the ball. (not a split or chip though)
Once the balls have been graded, any balls with paint loss or damage to the coating / paint, are sent to a professional company in Europe.
There, the balls go through a process that involves the old paint work being sand blasted or stripped off, then the ball receives a fresh coat
or paint, lacquer, and finally, identification stamps, to show that the ball has been refurbished, and to state if it is a pro v1 / pro v1 / pro v1 392.
