How it performs
What I was looking for
I have been playing the e6 golf balls since they were first released over ten years ago. I was searching for the highest quality golf ball possible, at the best price available.
Why I chose this golf ball
I chose the Bridgestone e6 for the feel, performance, and price. The soft feel and traction on the greens is just like Bridgestone tires. And at half the cost of other golf balls that I play, the e6 is a great option to pull out for the Island Greens.
What I love about it
- Distance: It has great distance and can compete with any other golf ball.
- Feel: The feel is incredible. The ball is extremely soft and compresses off every clubface nicely and with control.
- Durability: Being a two-piece construction golf ball, the e6 is not known for its durability.
Issues I’ve encountered
- Green Spin: It does not offer the greenside spin control that higher swing speeds will prefer.
- Durability: The e6 will show scuff marks sooner than three or four-piece construction golf balls.
Best shot with this golf ball
My best shot with the e6 came just after an out-of-bounds shot. After thinking I was in trouble on a par 5, I was able to take my drop and hit a 215-yard slice around some trees to make the green. I was grateful for that tap in par.
Value for the money vs. other options
Bridgestone e6 golf balls are the ultimate value option. For golfers who want a premium golf ball without paying a premium price, start with the e6’s. Some other options that compare are the Wilson Chaos and Wilson Smart-Core, but those balls don’t offer as soft a feel as the e6.
Bridgestone offers one of the softest performance balls available with the e6. It is a bargain golf ball for every golfer that prioritizes feel. However, with a 44 compression rating, golfers with faster swing speeds will not like the feel or performance.
