Does Paint Affect a Golf Ball's Flight? (Video)

This is such an interesting theory that I had to post this video.

Rick Shiels frequently tests clubs and balls... but this is an unusual ball. Wilson claims their Staff Model R flies straighter than other balls because it isn't painted. Is that really true? Does paint make that much of a difference?

I'll be honest here. I had no idea that golf balls were painted -- I thought the finish on a golf ball just depended on the composition of the cover material. So this was an education for me.

But Rick's conclusions didn't particularly surprise me, except that the ball felt harder coming off the clubface. (I would have guessed wrong on that one.) See how well you can guess the outcomes of his tests.
