The Laddie Extreme from Bridgestone is built for extreme distance first and foremost, and this feature derives from the golf ball’s muscle-fiber core. However, power is nothing without control, we all know that, hence Bridgestone Golf added into the mix its patented Touch N’ Control Ionomer cover for great feel, so there you have it: feel and extreme distance in an affordable yet performance oriented golf ball.

Here’s Adam Rehberg, from Bridgestone’s Golf Ball Marketing department commenting on the Laddie Extreme:

“After years of conducting in-depth golf ball fittings for players of all skill levels, we’ve learned that the needs of customers are very diverse and that we need a wide variety of high-quality and affordable options. The Laddie Extreme balls really speak to the players who want maximum distance off the tee without putting stress on their wallets.”

Yes, you got that right: these golf balls are not only performance-driven (pun intended) but they go easy on your wallet. Speaking of performance, the Laddie Extreme is built to generate ludicrous distance off the driver, complemented by low spin and high launch. The best thing about these golf balls is that they retail for under $20/dozen, and even if they’re not as good as the Callaway Chrome Soft or the Pro V1’s, they’re close enough for the average golfer, which means they play in the best-bang-for-the-buck category and they win. Also, if you’re a mid-handicapper, you’ll hardly notice the difference in overall performance compared to golf balls that cost thrice as much, so you won’t cry when you lose them in the bushes.
