I like the Bridgestone E6 at it's price point also, and it's pretty cheap.
Another option in the Nike PD Soft. It's a good ball for the money and can be found for around $16.00 per dozen or less. A great beginner ball.
I started playing golf on my own a couple of years ago so I could get good enough to play with a group of friends who mostly had handicaps around 15. I eventually got to the point where my handicap was under 36 and I decided to start playing with them. I always followed the rules to determine my handicap, no mulligans, no improving lie or position, etc.
The first time I played with these guys, I could tell they were better than me, but not 20 strokes. I then...
We play COD (carts opposite drivers).
It's a good game for a foursome of friends since the teams change every 6 holes, and everyone gets a chance to play with everyone else.
We usually play for just a buck per 6 hole match and handicap it.
It keeps it competitive.
Occasionally a match is decided before 6 holes, so we play $1.00 skins for the extra holes.

I have been playing the E6 lately and like how straight and long it is, but it is really poor at checking up on the greens for me. It seems to just roll forever, even with lofted iron shots. I otherwise really like the ball.
I'd like to give a different ball a try. I need to reduce side spin, so ProV1s and the like are too spinny for me at my level right now. I think the Srixon Q star is a good candidate to try. Any other thoughts? I'd like the same price range as the E6...
Following up on my other thread, I'm not happy with my current outer layer, which is a V-neck Champion pullover. It's good for fall, but won't be for winter.
I'm looking to get a better layer and would appreciate suggestions.
I Have heard good things about Mizuno, UA and Footjoy.
What's you favorite outer layer item?
Thanks for the replies-
Here's what I tried so far-
I live in NJ and am planning to play into the 40s, but doubt 30s. I played the other day in about 50 degree weather wearing a long sleeve t-shirt, a medium weight fleece covered by a Champion flannel lined pullover. I used a knit ski hat and rain golf gloves (all I had), and was warm, but felt a bit restricted. I used plain pants and my legs were fine, but if it gets colder, I'll put a layer on under the pants...
