|we used to sell a device that allow you to find out the "spine" of the ball. you can draw a continuous line and see the difference between a "spine" and not "spine ball". it sort of spin the ball at high speed then the ball will rest at its naturally aligned position which is pretty much the same as a wheel balancing to optimise tire performance.|
the reason we stopped selling them was since we have ZEN putters, the "spine" will stay on line till the last drop anyway.
if you are interested to find out if the "spine" affect the roll, you can use the putting green in the HOZ to try out your theory.
Care to share how does your zen putters keep the "spine" on line?

Finally got the recommended golf ball from GD...
Hopefully can test out and compare between golf balls to see if the dimples affect the ability to hold it's path...
Below is a pic of the ball recommended...

All balls are ditterent even from the same manufacturer / model. To check the 'spine' of a golf ball is simple. Put a Golf ball into a mug/cup fill with water. Add salt gradually till the golf ball floats then take a marker pen to mark the top part of the golf ball which is the lightest point. Hence the 6 o'clock or the opposite direction of the golf ball is the heaviest. So whenever you putt or tee off put the mark golfball facing up so that the spine of the ball is always facing to the target line.
