I've played Titleist balls for years. My swing coach gave me some Bridgestone e5 and B330-RX and they just sat in my garage. Ran low of Titleist balls and decided to try the Bridgestone's. My scoring average this season has been 89. Played 3 rounds this week with the e5 and shot 85, 83, and 81. Played 1 round with the RX and shot 83. Averaged 8 GIRs per round compared to normal 3-4. Both balls provide great distance and trajectory and soft feels off irons and driver. The e5 has tremendous drop and stop from iron shots, and actually backs up, in addition to shutting down on shots around the green. All shots, driver to short irons, were fairly straight. If mishit, then a slight fade or hook to 1st cut of rough occurred but nothing out of bounds or in the water. Bottom line: Titleist will not return to my bag! Anyone want any Titleist hats, gloves and other items!! Oh well, looks like a nice donation to an organization!

I have been playing the e5 ball since its introduction. I like the urethane cover for feel and control. I recently had my first eagle on the par 4 tenth hole at Del Lago golf course. Great ball.

I've been using the Nike PD Soft ball for a year. This spring I began searching for a ball that would drive better and work better on the fairways with my Cobra 3-wood. My son recommended the Bridgestone e6 ball, which I tried for nine holes of play last week. But I tried the e5 ball today for all 9 holes and it is the best ball I've ever played. Drives straight and far, super on the fairway using my 3-wood, chips beautifully, putts super nice, and works fantastic with my irons. After the round today I purchased a box of 12 Bridgestone e5 balls. This is the best ball I've ever played and I can't recommend it enough. Thanks Bridgestone for this fantastic e5 ball.

I switched to this ball over the Pro V1 and I got my first hole in one. 27 days later, on Father's Day, I got my 2nd. I was recommended this ball by a Bridgestone Technician. I am never switching back. I wish they were a little softer around the greens like the Pro V1 but for the money I think this is the best ball available.

I'm 69 yrs. old with a 9 handicap and relatively slow swing. I count on accuracy over distance in scoring. I'm on my second dozen of the Bridgestone e5 and am so pleased with the ball that I don't think I need to do any more shopping around. I've found my ball. Excellent feel on all the clubs. I don't know if the "dual dimple" stuff makes any difference, but the ball sure does fly nicely, roll out on the fairway and stop well on the green. Great ball, great price.

I changed from Pro V1 to e5 and can't believe the additional distance I see on my drives. In addition, I was very impressed with the feel with my short game. I'm happy I made the change to the e5 ball. Thanks!

I switched to the e5 from the original Noodle and absolutely love it. Love the distance off tee and the feel around the greens. I even got my brother to switch after out-driving him for 9 holes. I let him borrow a ball for the back nine and he was sold.

My brother was playing the e5 during one of our rounds and I noticed he was driving the ball some 40yds past me. We typically hit just about the same distance and was surprised he was hitting it so far past me this time. I asked to use one of his balls starting the back nine and ended up matching his distance in drives. Nothing changed but the ball. This ball is great and i've switched over.

After trying about every ball out there i realized i dint need a four or 5 core ball. I had developed a slice on my drives which is something I never did before. Took the bridgestone fitting and tried the e5. Wow!! What a difference a ball will make. I had so much more control over the ball than any other brand and for the price you cant go wrong. I ended up playing the best round of the season so far with the e5.
I played the e5 for the first time this past weekend after playing "premium tour balls" for many years. I picked up 5 yards of distance with my irons and at least 10 to 15 extra yards with my driver. I did not see any loss of backspin with approach shots into greens. If there was any less backspin on pitch shots and half-wedges, the difference wasn't noticeable. A great ball, and for only $27 a dozen, an even greater value!
