Dimples work on golf balls because the shape is so abrupt. If you can keep a ball from rotating, all it needs is a thin ring or groove as the air approaches the widest part.

I believe the Corbin Sparrow is fiberglass, and the dimples are placed as boundary layer turbulators where they might do a bit of good to fix the shape. It would be easier than more extensive mold mods.
