Mizuno RB566V Golf Ball Review

REVIEW: Mizuno RB566V Ball

By: | Tue 28 Jul 2020 | Comments

Engineered with large, high energy cores that have been introduced to reduce driver spin and encourage an elevated launch for more efficient, stable performance, Mizuno's RB566 and RB566V golf balls feature the distinctive 566 dimple pattern, which is designed to deliver prolonged flight. Golfshake Ambassador Mel Davies has been testing them for us to see if the performance reflects the ambition.

Tech Specs

  • A soft compression, three-piece construction for increased velocity at launch.
  • With a unique 566 D-dimple design engineered to delay the rate of descent past the apex of flight.
  • A slightly higher launch angle and nimble around the greens.
  • New softer rubber core delivers incredible feel with improved ball speed.
  • Next generation micro-dimples sit inside the larger dimples to function earlier in prolonging ball flight.
  • IONOMER COVER For a blend of greenside feel and all year-round durability.


When you first see these balls, you are drawn straight away to the “micro dimples” that sit inside the normal dimples. To some I’m sure they would look a bit strange, but I personally thought they looked great.


The RB566V balls feel great on all aspects of the game. Nice feel off the face with the driver, not too firm but not too soft. Again, the irons felt the same and this is a feel that I like from a ball. Chipping and putting is where these balls really come into their own for me, they don’t feel overly soft, but they do spin around the greens and give great feel off the club/putter face.


These balls have performed as well if not better than any other I have tried before, and I think I’ve pretty much tried most balls down the years. Great performance off the tee including distance. Well struck irons will get a good amount of spin into the green as will pitch and chipping shots. Very durable, I used one for 45 holes and only had a couple of slight scuffs on them. I also found them to perform superbly in windy conditions and the flight was great.



Great ball for all levels of golfer. They perform as well as you’ll find, durable, look great and price wise they are cheaper than other balls in the same category. Performance wise in windy/wet conditions I think you’ll struggle to find better.


Nothing negative at all to say about these balls.

The Bottom Line

I’ve been using these balls for about four weeks and have seen no drop off at all with distance. My accuracy off the tee has gone up and my overall game has improved. I can see no reason whatsoever why these wouldn’t be put in play by any level of golfer. I’ve enjoyed using them that much I’ve also bought myself another box!
