Abstract: A golf ball with a cover formed by spraying is disclosed herein. In the present invention, a mixture of a low viscous diisocyanate component and a diamine free of organic solvent are sprayed onto a mantle insert to form a cover layer for a golf ball. A rapid reaction occurs and a solid layer forms within ten seconds. The polyurea material is extremely durable so that the cover layer performs with excellent shear cut durability.

Abstract: A golf club head comprising a slidable weight for adjusting the location of the club head center of gravity is disclosed herein. The club head has a channel disposed in its sole and a slidable weight assembly comprising a weight body and a rotatable cam portion. The channel includes a single, L-shaped rail extending upwards from a channel floor, and the slidable weight assembly is reversibly fixed to the rail when the rotatable cam portion is rotated such that a curved protrusion is disposed underneath a ledge of the L-shaped rail. The channel preferably has an S-shaped or closed loop configuration such that the club head's center of gravity can be adjusted along X (front to back) and Y (heel to toe) horizontal axes. A golf club head comprising a slidable weight for adjusting the location of the club head center of gravity is disclosed herein.
