Polara: anyone seen these in the wild?

Has anyone encountered these balls on a course yet? Here is a link to the NY Times article http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/10/sports/golf/10ball.html?_r=2&hp.

These strike me as the ultimate antithesis to the ABS ideal.

Here’s the thing: who among us would let a competitor play one of these balls? Even for a buck-a-skin Monday night beer-league game?

But I wonder, what happens on the second shot, when the arrow may be facing left to right, instead of at the target? Wouldn’t the dimples then mazimize any slice / hook spin, and result in a truly scary, uncontrolable golf shot?

Oh well. That’s just my $0.02 worth.
