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!

I had my first fitting for driver, irons and ball last year. I had a terrible slice and was not getting the distance I wanted. After trying 4 different balls that were suggested by the club fitter, I found the E6 to help not only reduce my slice, but most rounds eliminates it! It is now the only ball I will play ( I give the found balls to my wife). Don't get me wrong, I still try a new ball that has the same characteristics ......as golfers we are always looking to better our game!

This is my ball of choice. I have a pronounced slice and am always trying to find balls that can reduce spin, yet are still playable on approach and around the greens. While I still slice somewhat on long drives, the slice is not nearly as bad and I am getting an additional 15-20 yards on my drives. I have never played a ball that does a better job of correcting side spin. I find that I can play it fairly well going at the pin and around the greens;not as well as the tour balls, but still pretty good. For me the fairways hit make about a six stroke difference (that's how bad my slice is).

Everybody's game is different, and finding the right ball is very difficult with so many options on the market. I am a 14 handicap and play about 25 to 35 rounds a year, so my shot-making ability is not consistent enough to know immediately that the ball performs right for me. I have used Pro V1x and Calaway Tour Xi balls for the past few years. I like the feel of the softer balls, and I generate a lot of backspin on high irons and wedges - plus, my sand wedge tears and knicks the soft cover of both the Calaway and the ProV1's. Often times, I have too much backspin which causes me problems hitting into greens as well. Today, at my home course, I found a nearly new E+6 on the course and started using it. I had tried 330's in the past, and never tried any other Bridgestone ball. This ball performed phenomenally for me. I am often wild off the tee (both right and left) and hit my driver in the 250 to 300 yard range. I noticed immediately straighter tee shots with increased distance. I was very pleasantly surprised that my 7 irons (160+/- yards) through wedges landed very softly with just enough backspin and almost stayed in place - none of the wild backspin 10 to 30 feet back at me depending on slope of green. And the few times I've tried a solid ball like a Titleist NXT, they jump forward on me and don't spin enough. It felt soft and performed very well for me. I had no idea on the claims of being a straighter ball, but hit 3 or 4 fairways with it, which is somewhat unusual for me. Unfortunately, II only used it on 7 or 8 holes, and my pro shop does not carry Bridgestone so I'll have to go out and pick up a dozen and try them out more. My first impression was I may have finally found the right ball for my game.
