A Basic Guide to Choosing Your Golf Balls

November 11th, 2014

 
Choosing golf balls is one of the most important decisions you would have to make as a golfer, whether you are an amateur or a professional player. To help you with this step, here is a basic guide on how to pick out your golf balls.
 
First, analyze your game. Look at your playing style and how it could be improved. Note the problem areas, because you might be able to remedy these by picking the right golf ball. You might want more distance or less spin—whatever it is, you have to know what you want to achieve first before you make your decision.
 
The next step is to know as much as you can about ball design and function, and how it can affect your game. For this, you would have to look into compression levels, material used, inner structure, and outer shell design.
 
For compression levels, your choice depends on what you want to remedy in your playing style. For example, if you want more distance, you should go with high-compression golf balls. The trade-off with high-compression varieties, however, is that you would have less control over the direction of the ball. If you already manage straight drives, you can opt for a high-compression golf ball. Golf balls with low compression, on the other hand, will give you more control. The corresponding trade-off is that these balls are not made to cover longer distances. These balls are ideal for short shots using irons.
 
golf ballsNext, compare the material used. The outer covers are usually made of synthetic resin or urethane on the one hand, or balata, a dried tree sap molded into a sphere, on the other. Balls that have balata outer shells are softer. As a consequence, these variants are better for ball control. However, these are comparatively less durable. The synthetic resin or urethane balls have harder outer shells. These balls are highly durable, but you would have to make some sacrifices in terms of control.
 
The next thing to look into is the inner structure of the ball. These are usually classified into two-piece, three-piece, or four-piece types. Two-piece balls have one inner core and a shell; these have less spin which means you have more control. Three-piece balls have one core, a mantle, and a shell. These have more spin than the two-piece varieties. This makes the ball sensitive to mishits, but a player with a consistent swing will have no problem using it. The four-piece type is the newest, and it combines multiple materials for best effect. This means the different parts of the golf ball are optimized to improve your game, giving you more distance and more spin. This is usually used only by serious amateurs and professional players, not only because it requires high swing speeds, but also because it is the most expensive type.
 
You would also have to look into the outer structure of the shell. The dimple patterns on the outer shell will affect the ball in terms of maximum height achievable and trajectory in-flight.
 
Now, the next step is to cross-check your problem areas then see what specific features of golf balls you will need to help you improve these problem areas. Remember that you can’t find a perfect ball to do all the work for you. Your choice will often have a corresponding trade-off in some other area. A perfect example here is how you might trade distance for spin, and vice versa. Simply put, the key is to see which feature you need more, and how you can compensate in terms of your playing style.

Interesting Facts about E Liquids

October 31st, 2014

E Liquids are the liquid nicotine solutions used in e-cigarettes to produce a nicotine vapor that looks like real smoke. The difference between e-liquid and cigarette smoke is that the vapor is odorless, and it does not contain any tar or emit carbon monoxide. It also does not result in 2nd hand smoke. Because of these characteristics, it can be used just about anywhere, even in areas where cigarette smoking has been banned.

Ejuice or eliquid has become a big industry because of the increasing number of users of electronic cigarettes. In order to produce vapor, e-cigarette needs eliquid. In the past few years, e-cigarette users are increasing in Ireland and in other parts of the world. Eliquid will continue to evolve as people start shifting in the way they feel and think about smoking. Do not hesitate choose the best eliquid. Ireland is one of the countries that patronize the use of ecigarettes.

E liquids have been referred to as liquid nicotine, smoke juice, refill liquid, vape juice, e cig liquid, e liquid nicotine, nicotine liquid, e smoke juice, electronic smoking liquid, and e juice.

e-liqAs mentioned above, eliquid is the fluid used in the cartridges of ecigarettes. Generally, it has three major components: the agent to produce the vapor, flavorings to add flavor, and nicotine to satisfy your cravings. All of the components, except for nicotine, are considered safe for use in food items. The two types of agents used in eliquid to produce vapor are PV or propylene glycol and VG or vegetable glycol. The most common used agents for e liquids is PG, while VG is used for individuals with allergies or sensitivity to PG.

The most common type of eliquid is the one with PG agent. If you are new to vaping, order only a small amount to make sure that you are not stuck with a big batch of liquid that you cannot use due to allergies or because you do not like them. Propylene Glycol produces less vapor and sweeter juices. Sometimes you will find both agents in one liquid, because VG is thicker than PG, and most of the time VG is combined with PG to make it more soluble. There are instances where VG is mixed with PG to give it more consistency.

E liquids are likewise available in various strength levels of nicotine. The strength levels may range from 0 nicotine up to levels as high as 4.8% nicotine, though nicotine higher than 2.6% are hard to find. The nicotine level is expressed in mg/ml but can be converted to % by putting a decimal between the digits, 24mg would be around 2.4% nicotine.

The Right Strength of Eliquid For You

The right strength of eliquid will depend on several factors. If you smoke one pack a day, then you need 1.2% of nicotine in your e liquid but some would say they need more than that. If you plan to engage in vaping for a while, you should do some research on e-cigarettes and e liquids. It is best for a first time user of ecigarette to buy a bottle of 18mg-24mg of liquid and a bottle of 0 nicotine with similar flavors. So you can dilute your 18mg or 24mg with 0 nicotine if you think that it is too much for you.

For those who want to get rid of their smoking habit but are having a hard time doing it, they can start by using the e-cigarette. The electronic cigarette can provide the same satisfaction that you can get from smoking traditional cigarette, but is less dangerous. E liquids used in e-cigarette are available in different flavors that you will definitely love.
