The Bridgestone e6 SPEED Golf Ball retails for $29,99 a dozen and it makes for the company's "swan song" so to speak, with regard to Bridgestone's huge experience when it comes to ball fitting. Bridgestone and ball fitting are both peas in a pot for a long time and the company acquired an impressive amount of data via its millions of fitting sessions, thus the Bridgestone e6 SPEED Golf Ball was developed based on real-life experience and not much else. In this regard, the Bridgestone e6 SPEED is not just another iteration of Bridgestone's most popular line of golf balls but a brand new product aimed at golfers seeking for the perfect mélange between value and outstanding performance. And, buyer beware, the Bridgestone e6 SPEED Golf Ball is not near as expensive as the "higher end" B330 series models, though the performance levels are pretty close.
The Bridgestone e6 SPEED features a 3 piece design which includes a soft Surlyn cover, an anti spin mantle layer and a soft-gradational core. The philosophy behind the creation of the Bridgestone e6 SPEED is to offer players an enhanced soft feel on all shots and reduced spin off the driver for increased distance and for maximizing launch/stopping power on both iron and wedge shots. If you're a golfer seeking for more distance with an emphasize on softness, the Bridgestone e6 SPEED Golf ball will deliver all these things and then some, translating into straighter overall shots, more distance and faster ball speeds, round after round, shot after shot. It's also worth mentioning that this golf ball just hit the shelves on Bridgestone's official website and in warm weather markets on November 1st and it's expected everywhere else from February 1st 2017. Also, the Bridgestone e6 SPEED Golf Ball is available in 2 colors: the classic White and Optic Yellow, for difficult terrains/weather conditions.
