Nike RZN Platinum
By S. Dee Davis
The new Nike RZN Platinum golf balls incorporates a 4-piece construction with the new Speedlock Technology, the interlocking RZV (polymer resin) core design that delivers more energy between the layers of the ball, producing a faster ball speed, thus longer distance off the tee. This new generation of RZN is softer, lighter, and has better greenside control than previous versions, while still having the urethane cover that better player’s desire. Our testers thought this golf ball was far better than previous Nike designs, and was a serious contender for best new design. The performance characteristics and price point at $45.99 puts this golf ball in the premium category, but many amateurs would benefit from using a better golf ball.
Explosive core, very good distance.
Pricey for amateurs and less feel on putts.
