Orbital angular momentum of the coherently aligned Cooper pairs in superfluid A3 is encountered by an object immersed in the condensate. We evaluate the associated quasiparticle-scattering asymmetry experienced by a negative ion; this leads to a measureable, purely quantum-mechanical reactive force deflecting the ions trajectory. Possible hydrodynamic Magnus effects are also discussed.
