The Bridgestone Precept Powerdrive golf balls retail for $19.99 (pack of15/MSRP) and they’re built and designed for longer distance and excellent speed due to the company’s patented technologies, and I am talking about the optimized 372 Aerodynamic Dimple Design that works in tandem with the high velocity Muscle-Fiber Core. Moreover, this golf ball delivers an incredibly soft feel from tee to green, courtesy of its Touch N' Control lonomer cover. The core-design of the Bridgestone Precept Powerdrive also works wonders in terms of lowering spin and higher launching, features that also add to the ball’s speed and travel distance. Basically, this baby is built with speed and distance in mind, and, very importantly, it comes at a very affordable price, compared to other brands in its niche/price bracket.

Performance wise, the Bridgestone Precept Powerdrive plays in the best bang for the back category, delivering low spin and high launch, not to mention the fact that this baby is absolutely explosive off the driver, being a golf ball focused on golfers seeking long distance and good performance, yet without breaking the bank in the process. The aerodynamic dimple design of the Bridgestone Precept Powerdrive helps the ball to maintain the desired trajectory through the wind, while its Touch N'Control Ionomer® Cover guarantees tons of feedback, and makes for a ball that runs true both on approach shots and on the greens. Considering the price asked, the Bridgestone Precept Powerdrive golf ball is very hard to beat, but keep in mind that compared to the Laddie, it’s a tad longer, yet not as soft around the greens. Bottom line, the Bridgestone Precept Powerdrive should be on your short list if you’re looking for an affordable golf ball, but you’re not willing to make compromises in terms of performance.
