The centred candy spot is designed to contribute to longer affect time, much less head deflection and better spin from each full and partial pictures.
“That verify and spin you see from the professionals isn’t purely due to newer grooves – most of us don’t have the consistency of strike to get that type of motion. For the overwhelming majority, a centralised candy spot makes it a lot simpler to seek out and get that repetitive motion.” – David Llewellyn, Director of R&D for Mizuno
