French term or phrase: prise d'effet
In a description of golf balls (!)

Faible prise d'effet sur les longs coups, bon spin sur le petit jeu.

There are also descriptions of the "prise d'effet" of different balls:

Bonne: enveloppe souple pour augmenter le spin sur le petit jeu
Plutot bonne: les 432 aveoles renforcent le spin sur le petit jeu
Plutot bonne sur le petit jeu grace a la coque en surlyn sodium/zinc
etc.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

This was incredibly helpful. I don't think I would have ever come up with it, and it is exactly what they are talking about.
