I decided give this ball a try since it was on sale for under $25, plus the fact it has urethane cover... this ball is durable and feels great to put with... however, this ball doesn't spin as much compare to ProV's or Callaway Tour i... I was surprised when I hit few drives over 320 with this ball... this ball travels far in the air !!! I will be sure to give this ball few more try =)

Best bang for your buck golf ball out there. I shoot in the low 70s and id say this ball has all the distance and spin youd get out of the pro v1 but lasts longer.
Just had my first fitting ever for a golf ball really did not feel it was that important.I was wrong,Went through the fitting process and the ball recomendation was the E-5.More control,with the driver,distance went up 20 yds.better feel around the greens.I will be using the E-5.Thanks to the fitting prosfrom Bridgesone Golf.

Excellent feel - High, but flat ball flight, with shallow decent for added roll at the end of a drive - Not bad spin around the greens - Not a Pro V1 but for the money I'll take the e5 any day without a second thought - As good of a buy/value that I have seen to date !
I played the E5 last Saturday and shot 78. Best round in many months. I am a 9 handicap, age 63. I have played all the balls and generally would play the Srixon Star. For a long time I have looked for a ball that was fundamentally simple with a urethane cover and somehow I finally connected to the E5. For me this is a perfect golf ball. It spins well, feels great and really flys. As I often play early when it is a bit cool, I was also pleased to see the ball was not limited by the cool morning air. It flew well off the first hole in 45 degrees and about the same 4 hours later in 65 degrees. Great ball. Good price. Durable. Perfect.

i bought a 3 sleeve of balls after hearing all the rave about the balls, to be honest i wasn't that expectant, but first drive came off the middle of the driver, 300 yards +! then i had a tricky chip shot and the feel was great, i tryed the other balls but i prefer the e6 cause of my slice drive

14 handicap that plays less and less due to having 4 young kids. My dad gave me a dozen e-5's as a gift - found I hit every club in the bag a little higher and kept the ball in play way more than my erratic game normally played out (index started trending DOWN again!). Tournament last week in Niagara Falls - 148 yr par 3 into the wind - knock down 8 iron with an e-5 that checked and rolled 1 ft backwards into the hole. I'm going to try the e-7 for a little more tee distance but when i'm playing a course where it needs to fly - I'm using the e-5!

True story ,I have played 1 or2 bridgestone balls in the past .On this praticuler day ,I had lost may last proV1,so I played the next couple of holes with some old balls I had in my bag.One weak earlier on mens night, I had won a dozen of the TOUR B330-RX Balls,I had not used yet ,so we came up to the 8th hole ,a 160 yard par 3. I took out one of these new balls teed it up hit a vary good shot,it hit the green 5 feet short of the pin rolled,and droped in the hole.I played the rest of the with these balls.they truely are a vary good ball,and I will be changing brands

I used to play the proV1 then i was fitted for balls, and figured out that i wasn't swinging fast enough to get what i wanted from it. Then i tried the pinnacle platinum fell, (loved it) then i tried the platinum distance, and i also loved it. the last ball i tried was the e-5 it had the spin control of the proV1, the feel of the pinnacle platinum feel, and it went farther than the platinum distance. So if you like one of those balls just try the e-5. Its the only ball i play.
i swear i dont get anymore outta a pro v1x then this ball this is hands down the best ball for the money and is only beat by the 330s i can hit little trap shots around the green and go right at the pin and this ball checks better then a pro v1 i cant belive how good this ball is great job bridestone golf.
