This review comes from a very analytical player that tracks everything, played a Pro-V1, and is a +1.7 index. The e-7 increased my short irons between 3 and 7 yards and about 5-10 yards for long irons & hybrid. From the fairway the ball performs comprable to the Pro-V1, only drawback is from the rough playing hard greens, then it will be like trying to stop a ball on I-80. Ball flies only about 1 degree lower. The Driver goes about 10-15 yards further with 5 of the yards from carry but with wind at back and hard fairways I have got as much as 30 yards extra. Excellent ball as long as you aren't playing U.S. Open conditions.

I took the test -- I use the B-330 and loved it but i also found out that i can get a little more out of the E-7. And i did, i still play the b-330, but i play the E-7 just because i know i can with confidence. I recommend the E-7 for those who are playing the pro-v-1. because this ball is great from tee to green.

E7 is a Great ball. I Don't know why People say the trajectory is low but, i could hit it high and low if I want too. Drives go 20 30 yards farther, about 250 Off the Tee, 210 yards with 3 wood, and good with the hybrids. this ball is soft and great around the greens too. Im only 5'6 And hit it far, but i could hit it far if i wanted too but I want to be consistent. I recommend this ball if you are consistent and need the extra distace. shots of the day were 270 off the tee to 150 8 Iron , but I got a par. then I hit a 210 yard 3 wood and over shot the green. Also, drove the green on a 235 yard par 3.

A pro player gave me one of these balls at the Nationwide Tour last weekend. I am a 6hcp. And usually play Pro-V1x. I went out and shot par the next day with that ball. I loved it. My ball flight was lower, more penatrating and I seemed to be able to stop the ball eaiser on the green. My drives were straight and long. And my aproach shots were very straight and accurate. I love the e7 ball.
I tried this ball recently, and I have to admit it is good, long and straight. Here it is alway windy and even in high winds - like 40 mph it is straight. This is a great ball and keep my ball from skying, still high though :-) I play in 3,2 hcp.......

I just played my 1st round this weekend and this ball is absolutely AWESOME!!! I shot 5 pars on the front 9 using this ball which I have never done in my life as I am typcially a bogey player. My trajectory is much lower (noticabily) on my Driver as well as my Long Irons and Hybrids. My trajectory now reminds me of a tour player's! Also, around the greens great feel and enough spin not to run. This is by FAR the BEST ball I have EVER played!!! I just dumped every other ball in my bag as they don't even come close to comparing to the way this ball performs. Bye, Bye Titlest, Nike, and Callway...
I LOVE the e7!!!!!! I used to it it really high and my drives would go anyware!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't know what all these guys are saying about lowering trajectory! I still hit it high if I want to but this ball you can kill. I hit drives well over 300 today carrying 280-290 and I don't do that period long long ball and is good around the greens what else do you want

I just got fitted to the e7. I was playing the Nike Vapor Speed (great ball). Like many of you, my ball off the tee would baloon and rob me of distance. The e7 eliminated that balooning and I was actually booming it. Can't wait to get in on the course this weekend. I want to see how good it is off the tee as well as in the short game arena. I will keep you posted.

R9 9.5 driver 101-104 MPH My driver distance is about 240 yards. My biggest problem has become a "ballooning" where I will rip a drive and see it go out about 180 yards and then appear to actually go UP from there and then drop like a rock from the sky. After doing research on lower spin balls, I decided to try the Bridgestone e7 this weekend. Wow - what a HUGE difference! I could easily see it the first time I hit it as the trajectory was much more of what you might see a long hitter hit. My first hole was a 420 yard hole and when I got up to the ball and checked my laser finder, I saw that I was only 131 yards to the pin that was tucked at the back of the green. So, that first drive was around 300 yards. I found the ball to stop well on the greens but probably not as quickly / abruptly as I have seen with the Pro V1x. The e7 was definitely good enough and the extra distance off the tee and with the irons is worth giving up a little spin around the green.
