Our playable “Ouimet” firm mesh pattern ball was patented by Albert Penfold of the East India Rubber Company in 1912. This pattern became the favorite of many leading professionals into the 1920s. The most famous model became the Dunlop Maxfli, first made in 1919 after Penfold was lured to Dunlop.
This batch of Ouimets have a firm cover that I have had issues with cracking. I will sell the balls for Logo ball use until I have a better alternative. As a result I will discount them at $22 per dozen plus shipping
