This is a comment for Gino from Ohio. I would guesstimate that 90% of amateurs don't play the right ball for them. Most amateurs are playing the tour line balls because that's what the pros are playing. The E6+ is exactly the ball for you. It is a ball that was specifically created for players exactly like you. The compression of this ball I believe is around 55 which is designed for slower swing speeds. It was also created to correct a slice or a hook. The lower the compression, the lower the spin rate off the face. It won't spin or bite as much as the 330 series, but it is an exceptional ball. The only reason more amateurs don't play them is because it's not what a majority of the pros play.

I had purchased a box of e5's and used a picked up e6 without realizing it. I typically shoot 95-105 on a par 73 and after I par'd the 2nd and 3rd hole, then stuck the Par 3 4th within 5 feet, I looked at the ball and realized I needed a box of these. Only gripe was a consistent pop-up slice with the driver and a mile high 3 wood off the tee when I usually play a gentle fade, but I'm 90% confident that it was in my swing. A trip to the range and another round with these is in my near future! Excellent ball.

I'm a 12 handicap and have always had trouble hitting greens in regulation. The e6+ is nice for me because it so long and straight off the tee (easily 10 more yards than the Pro V1x's I've played). I can keep this ball in the fairway and put short clubs in my hands, which really helps. My only gripe is that the e6+ doesn't spin well around the greens, making it more difficult to get up and down sometimes. A loyal Pro V1 player would not like this ball. Overall I am very pleased with e6+, it performs exactly as advertised.

I'am 67 years old. My swing speed is about 83 mph. I shoot in the 90's. I have played the Bridgestone e+6 after I took the recommended ball challange fitting survey. But I have some questions if this is the right ball for me. I'am looking for a low compression ball, maximun distance off the tee and avoid slice or hook. What do you suggest?
Have used this ball since it was intoduced. Performs better than many higher priced balls. Since playing the E6 I have not found myself wanting to try other balls.

Ball Fitting -- who me? I'm in my 50's and shoot in the 90's and have been using the Precept IQ 180 (and didn't know it was a Bridgestone product). I happened to be at Golf Galaxy today and they had a free Bridgestone ball fitting -- so I tried it. Patrick was very informed and helpful. He recommended the e6+ and gave me two 2-ball sleeves to start. Since they're supposed to improve my game -- and I have a 4 day, 126 hole golf trip coming up next week -- I bought two dozen. (It didn't hurt that there's a free shirt promotion going on...) Sorry I can't report if they made a difference in my game yet but I'll let you know in a couple of weeks. BTW, e6+ sounds more like a formula than the name of a golf ball. P.S. the online golf fitting came to the same conclusion. Longer and straighter drives -- here's hoping :)

I'm a 4 handicap and get somewhat tired of paying $45 for the Pro V1. I tried the e6 and have to say that they are just as long if not longer than the ProV1 (I average about 285 off the tee). The only difference is that I do not get as much spin with my wedges,but that is o.k. Great product. Finally, something that doesn't cost an arm-and-a-leg that works as they say.
found the E6+ and played with it and bought 12 the next day. It stopped my slicing. That is what I will be using for now on.

Aight so i tried the pro V's and dont get me wrong there great, but i'm not the cleanest hitter. They would scuff left and right, it got me tired. So I asked a golf pro at GOLFTEC whats a good ball that doesnt get scuffed much, he suggested the E's series. I went straight to the store after and pick out the e6--> for my drive spin control. Thinking they would be very expensive, i was suprised to pay only $20 and box. I used them in my last three high school games and was the top scorer. Always was the first time i beat my father was with these. THANKS BRIDGE!
