Title
(EN) A STREAMER BALL
(FR) BALLE À SERPENTINS
Abstract
(EN)
A streamer ball (10) for use in bat and ball type games, comprises an impact body (12), a tail formed of flexible streamers and a spacer stem (16) having the tail attached thereto. The impact body (12) comprises a hemispherical front body part (18) and a frusto-conical rear body part (20) which are glued to one another along a joint plane (22). The rear body part (20) tapers rearwardly from the front body part which includes a resiliently compressible frontal impact zone which can be struck by a bat. The rear body part defines spaced circumferential grooves 25.1 and 25.2. The teardrop shape of the impact body provides the ball with a streamlined profile which reduces the effect of turbulence at the trailing end of the impact body rendering the ball suitable for use in windy conditions. The teardrop profile also causes the impact body to quickly turn over and stabilize in flight after impact by a bat.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur une balle à serpentins (10) destinée à être utilisée dans des jeux du type à batte et à balle, laquelle balle comprend un corps d'impact (12), une queue formée de serpentins souples et une tige d'espacement (16) à laquelle est fixée la queue. Le corps d'impact (12) comprend une partie de corps avant hémisphérique (18) et une partie de corps arrière tronconique (20), qui sont collées l'une à l'autre le long d'un plan de jonction (22). La partie de corps arrière (20) s'effile vers l'arrière à partir de la partie de corps avant, qui comprend une zone d'impact frontale compressible élastiquement qui peut être frappée par une batte. La partie de corps arrière définit des rainures circonférentielles espacées (21.5 et 21.2). La forme en larme du corps d'impact communique à la balle un profil aérodynamique qui réduit l'effet des turbulences à l'extrémité de queue du corps d'impact, rendant la balle appropriée pour l'utilisation dans des conditions venteuses. Le profil en larme permet également au corps d'impact de tourner rapidement et de se stabiliser en vol après l'impact par une batte.
