We determine the physical properties of p-wave Feshbach molecules in doubly spin-polarized K-40 and find excellent agreement with recent experiments. We show that these molecules have a large probability Z to be in the closed channel or bare molecular state responsible for the Feshbach resonance. In the superfluid state this allows for observation of Rabi oscillations between the molecular and atomic components of the Bose-Einstein condensed pairs, which contains a characteristic signature of the quantum phase transition that occurs as a function of applied magnetic field.
