How long will each RF-Golf™ Ball last before locating performance is impaired?

Each RF-Golf Ball is designed to provide at least 100 hours of continuous signal transmission, which is comparable to the physical wear life of any conventional golf ball.

How is the RF-Golf™ Ball activated during play?

The RF-Golf Ball’s transmitter (RFID Tag) is automatically triggered on striking the ball with the club. The ball can be tested for activation by dropping it onto a hard surface from a height of 1 to 2 metres.

How is the RF-Golf™ Ball deactivated when located or at close of play?

Inside of the RF-Golf Handheld is a magnetic device that de-activates the RF-Golf Ball when placed within one centimetre. This can be observed by the diminishing signal strength on the Handheld unit upon successful ball de-activation. A 30 minute shutdown timer is also incorporated into the ball.

How is each RF-Golf™ Ball identified during play or located within the same search area?

RF-Golf Balls are numbered (or can be uniquely marked) on the outer cover in the same way as a conventional golf ball. The RF-Golf Ball Locating System does not distinguish between different RF-Golf Balls and will therefore locate the closest first. Once an RF-Golf Ball is located it can be deactivated and subsequent balls located and de-activated in the same way.
