      I'd like to see some kind of traction strip added inside the tube to induce spin on the ball as it travels down the tube. Launch it to see the magnus effect. Perhaps add a turbine to pre-spin the ball before launch. The magnus effect would be as impressive as the launch.

    31. Ron DUCK

      Cool video fun to watch thanks keep making videos

    32. A gaming channel

      12:54 We get a golf ball going like stupid miles an hour

    35. Allen Roblin

      This how club mfgs test their clubs.Golfs ruling bodies set the standards for clubs and if clubs are over those standards They are deemed illegal. Ball speed rebound off the club etc.

    36. Mareli AyalaMartinez


    37. Brown Curry

      when the golf ball hit the club the golf ball finally got its revenge "all of those years being smacked around I'm coming for ya "

      the ball gains a great gravitational force.

    58. Backroad Junkie

    59. Minehead Blockfeet

      6:10 i could see the ball without slowmo

    60. Michael Cloutier

      You need to hit a side of beef with that thing and see what it would do, or maybe some ballistic gell.

    61. Victory Uzoma


    62. ZambieZan2

      You guys seem soooo happy during the preparation phase. That alone deserves a like.

    63. JEEP CREEP

    64. DarkNite TGN

      I don't know why but explanation of physics makes you think that something is happening for a long time like this: 0:19

    65. Hernan Labur

      Hi, it's a very interesting video, thanks for sharing the experiment. here's an idea, hitting the golf ball to a non newtonian fluid.

    66. The Legendary Z

      These videos that talk about how hard can you hit balls make me really uncomfortable lol

    67. Thomas epic

      7:28 fire!

    68. Matt da man

      At 7:27 there is a flash at the bottom of the ball

    69. christopher voyce

      Great video because it was both informative and entertaining!

    70. Badrul Afif Ikmal

      I know how hard the ball is. I have an accident with golf ball before.

    71. Brian Johnson

      You're problem is your using metal drivers use wood THAT will be cool ! Be sure to have some tweezers on hand!

    72. Emily Brentz

      That's crazy!!!!!!

    75. Peter Crilly

      I'm with you dude!!!!!!

    76. Bronco 53

      For such smart guys, they certainly don't seem capable of very basic back-of-a-napkin energy calculations. So, you're going to fire a golf ball at 500 mph. That's 733 feet per second. A typical .45 ACP bullet has a muzzle velocity of only 800-1000 feet per second. A typical .45 ACP bullet weighs around 230 grains (0.526 ounces). A regulation golf ball is 708 grains (1.62 ounces). So, you're going to fire a projectile (which may have a catastrophic material failure that causes it to shatter into shards), that weighs over three times as much as a large pistol bullet, at speeds VERY close to that of a pistol bullet, INDOORS, with only a blanket or tarp as a "safety backstop" to keep if from going through the wall if it misses or glances off the target? That is incredibly stupid. If you had even done the most basic of energy calculations, you would have done this on a proper shooting range setup. At least, if you had a lick of common sense. Of course it went through a watermelon. And of course it had enough energy left to perforate the blanket and tarp behind it. It was literally more energetic than a pistol bullet.

      Normal people buy golf clubs to play golf. These guy buy them to destroy them with 500 mph golf balls.

    78. Chris Gilbert

      There were a few objects that flew past the camera moving way faster than the golf ball was, for example, the blue piece at 13:29.

    79. Eric Y.

      13:18 absolutely vaporized the watermelon

    80. PEPEdela110

      people at Wilson ULTRA not liking this video very much.

      1. jonki leshi

        13:18 the ball entered another dimension

      2. Emily Brentz

        The military:"it could work" Enemy tank:"is that a golf ball?!" The military:"we achive penetration"

    81. Kalibori

      They totally should have used a neon ball. Would have been way easier to track by camera.

    82. Screw the cabal


    83. Ishwan Dhanoa

      The golf ball became a third of its width on the first one and it was fine

    84. Joe

      WARNING: Mr. Watermelon was harmed in this video. Viewer discretion is advised.

    85. Nicholas Nugen

      I've always wanted to see a golf ball launched into orbit. Now I have

    86. Dexerion

      The watermelon was insane nice finish.

    87. The 8-Bit Nerd

      Rip Mr. Watermelon.

    88. Prod. Tropical Starlight

      all i got said R.I.P Golf Balls and Watermelon

    89. Russell Peterson

      I did not expect the watermelon to react like that, I thought it would just tear a hole through it.

    90. LmaoImNotBad

      13:19 having an opinion in 2020

    91. Jesse Valdivia

      that was awesome!

    92. Jonas Mokum

      Are you able to make an vacuum gun?

    93. Alberto Fernández Bienes

      the experiment execution with the watermelon was my favourite. hehehe

    94. JP Noll

      let herman munster hit the ball

    95. Hamza Bare

      The collab we always wanted.

    96. Eric

      At what swing speed would the golf club face fail? Would there be a difference in failure speed for the ball and club if the club were the one moving that fast?

    97. Harold McBroom

      Instead of focusing on where "things" are going, to determine your own path, focus more on what can be done in areas where no foot prints have been. Right now BigTech is migrating the populating slowly away from desktop computers, to dumbed down mobile devices through a process known as "cross-platform" compatibility. They are doing this, not because it's where WE want to go, but because they think they know what's best for everyone else, and when they control the tech, and no one else is creating competition. BigTech is what's destroying this Country. Do things your OWN way, and don't worry about following someone else's path. American ingenuity got is where we are, BigTech will destroy it all in record time.

    98. Shoriwa Shaun Benjamin

      Bet Tiger Woods watched this

    99. Sam Hall

      the way the golf ball broke the driver!!!
