Whistling golf balls

Unread postAuthor: Mr.Russ » Mon Apr 09, 2007 3:01 am

Has anyone ever thought of taking the concept that whistling nerf things do and putting something similer into a golf ball?

for example you could drill various holes on it and when you shot it out it would make cool whistling ammo AND still do damage.

Not really. If you just put little holes in (.5mm) it would be the same. have you ever got an empty pen and blocked the bottom end with your finger, then blow on an angle into the top? it whistles loudly. I woudl have thought it would have the same effect.

It should work. There was a link posted here to a video of a bowling ball morter. The ball whistled when it was shot, I think it was the finger holes causing it. So long as you drilled enough holes that there would always be one at the right angle I can't see any reason why it wouldn't work. If you drilled different length holes each hole would be a different tone, so as the ball rotates the sound would change.

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

At a joke shop in Brisbane (qld, australia) you can buy trick golf balls which explode when you hit them with a golf driver but if you put them in a pneunmatic they explode on impact.
They also sell whistling golf balls which i plan to buy and try to copy their design.
