I read a golf ball test and this ball tested as good as the best balls around the greens with a half swing sandwedge. Its the only ball under $70 with a urethane cover. My ball stops quicker on the greens than any other ball. I get backspin with my 4 iron. With a 9 deg driver the ball has a good flight with no balloon. The drives go as far ifnot further than a proV. The ball seems to balloon off my irons witch gives me good backspin. I've brought 6 boxes of these and it's the ball for me. Don't waste your money on an other ball.
Tried it for the urethane cover. I like the soft feel around the greens, without sacrificing anything on the tee box, or in the fairway. I moved to a Ping Redwood putter, from an Odyssey with an insert. No face insert on the Ping. So the softer feel of the E5+ works well the steel face of the Ping. A surlyn covered ball was like putting a rock. If you struggle with control around the greens, TRY THIS BALL!!! Urethane covered balls are usually pricey. This is very reasonably priced. Even more when caught on sale. Seriously. Golfers drop $300 on a driver. Then will only spend $10 for a dozen balls? There's a reason Top Flites are given away at golf outings. They're worthless.

Bridgestone e 5+ is a very good ball and I like it because it gives me a great shot every time. I know they cost more, but I believe they are worth it.

I recently took the Bridgestone Challenge here at Pro Golf in Bend. I have been playing the NXT Extreme and liking it, but I was fitted for the E5+. After trying it for a week, I've noticed that I'm getting a higher ball flight and definitely more distance. The ball has a nice, soft feel for approachs and has a great feel on the green. I have definitely noticed more spin on chips and pitches. Overall, I may have found my perfect match with the E5+. Great job, Bridgestone!

I like others wanted to use the ball that tour players use. What a mistake that was. It was like hitting a rock. After having an education at one of your ball fittings. I found myself in a whole new world of golf. I have a 20 handicap and hit the ball farther and straighter than my buddies with a 10 & 12 handicap. I feel that it won't be long until I am in the winning circle again. Do the ball fitting thing, and you will be glad you did...
Have played e5+ & treo-soft balls both. E5+ will give more distance, but I like the feel of the treo-soft off the club better. Don't have a fast swing speed, so treo may be better for average lady golfers.

worst ball i have ever used i am now quiting golf
I really never knew what control was until i used this ball. i have always played the titleist nxt tour. i am always in the fairway on my drives with this ball, and my irons are right on line with this ball. if you aren't sure which ball to buy, just buy a 3 pack and try it you will love them from the first drive, long and straight, with great spin from your irons. THANK YOU BRIDGESTONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had the fitting yesterday and this ball is perfect for golfers who don't want to spend $35 on the B330-RX. It cut my golf budget in half. This ball is the best ball I have ever played!
