Bridgestone E6

75 posts in this topic

Just wanted to share some info on the Bridgestone E6 ball. I bought a sleeve last night to use today and was so impressed that I had to start this thread. I played with the same ball thru the first 14 holes until I finally hit a hook off of the tee that no ball would have a chance It was bad. Lost it in the woods. Anyway this ball really improved my overall game. What I noticed was the straighter and farther ball flight produced. I average anywhere from 98 to 105 on this course. Today I shot 90 with a real chance of 85 or lower. Lots of leaves and such on the green disrupting putting chances. Really nice drives left me with a lot of sand wedge shots which showed me that this ball does not spin as well as some others but it is designed not to spin. Anyway , this is a great ball for my game and I wanted to share this in hopes of helping someone out with their game. I was also impressed with having brought 2 of the 3 home. Lol.

Should post what ball you were using previously. Think I used a sleeve on my trip down in MD and thought it played a little harder than an AD333 but fairly similar. Good luck with the ball.

I've been playing the E6 for a couple of years and can't find a reason to change. Great Ball IMO. They also now come in Optic Yellow and Orange for any 'non-traditionalists' out there.

I bought a box of Titleist HP3 Distance and quickly went thru them, then using any ball in the bag. I have found several different brands then figured. Then I found an E6 and used it to finish the round. Decided I liked it enough to try a sleeve.

I use the E6 too. They are great balls. If you can swallow the price, try the tour b330rxs. They are the best balls i have ever used. You get the straight ball flight of the e6, with a ton of distance, and excellent spin on the greens.

Great ball - yes a bit harder - but it does a hop and stop for me which I like - I think it is worth the lack of spin that I may need only on shortsided or other weird rare shots (compared to drives etc) the ball also holds up real well and is usually a bit longer than my buddies "tour" balls.
been looking for the yellow here in SD and still cannot find any

Yeah but they are the same price as Walmart sells them. While I was at Walmart I decided to check out the more expensive Bridgstone balls. Some of the manufacturers allow you to open and look at the sleeves. I opened the Bridgstone to take a look at them and found that someone had stuffed four sleeves of Noodles in it. Checked the expensive Srixon Z-stars and they were switched out with Topflites. I hope that this guy has terrible rounds with these balls. I also hope the next guy wanting to purchase them checks inside first. I opened the Titleist also, you can take the top off but there is plastic around the rest so you can't take the sleeves out. Just thought I would mention this since now I will take a look before buying new boxes.

Do the new limited edition yellow and orange versions seem to play any different than the white e6's?

Also I have only seen the yellow/orange versions at Dicks and Golf Galaxy, does anybody know if they have the yellow/orange ones at Walmart or Target?

I've been looking for a yellow ball similar in color to the Srixons Z-stars but cheaper and these fit the bill. Might have to try a few next spring. Definately on my Christmas list.

oh an one last question, anybody know what swing speed range these are designed for?
I typically swing my driver about 82mph and my irons in the mid to upper 70's. I wonder if I would even compress this ball.

No reason the paint color would make the ball play differently.
I don't have the actual stats for the e6 (compression, Cover hardness) but in my opinion the ball feels/plays relatively soft (the e7 feels significantly harder to me). My Driver Swing speed is about 98; I don't think you will feel like you can't compress it. Hope this helps.

I bought a 30 box of the e6 to try out, but quickly found the ball didnt check enough for me around the green. I went to the e5 and its almost like a pro v1. Either way Bridgestone are great ballmakers

I play the E6, and I find that it spins quite nicely on approach shots. On rare occasions I've even had it spin back 5 or 6 feet on the green. With a wedge or up to an 8I it usually just stops within 2-3 feet of the pitch mark, and with longer irons (up to a 5I) it still doesn't roll out more than 15 feet max... usually less. Like any ball it just takes crisp contact with the clubhead.

It doesn't spin much on short pitches or chips, which is part of the reason why I play it. I prefer playing a chip that rolls as soon as possible and rolls to the hole. I feel that I have much better chance of holing the shot if the ball is rolling on the green when it gets to the hole.

No reason the paint color would make the ball play differently.

Are they painted? I'd assumed there was dye in the plastic in the outer layer to make it yellow, which could conceivably affect the hardness. Still, I doubt they'd market it as the same ball if it were a significant change.

The e6 is a great ball, but my fave "inexpensive" ball is the e5. Urethane cover for $25ish a dozen.

I'm sure it's been covered before but the e6 is the same thing as the e6+, correct? I've been looking all over for the e6 but all I could find was the e6+.

IIRC the e6+ is the newer version, and it plays a little softer, but dont quote me on this.

The e6+ was released in between other "e6" balls. I believe, though I might be wrong here, that the e6+ was simply the 2009 version of the ball.

    • Carry-on one Driver golf club in airplane? US and to Eurpoe?
      Let us know how it works out. I'm pretty skeptical of your chances, regardless of the Huffington Post article, but am interested to hear how it really plays put. 
    • Your worst golf bargain
      The Alien wedge. That was the last gimmick "As Seen On TV" thing I ever got.
    • My irons keep breaking
      Hi all, first time posting. Basically looking some advice.  Bought a new set of wilson staff irons 2 years ago after being custom fitted for them in the local American Golf store.  About a month after i got them, the head flew off the 4 iron upon striking the ball from the fairway. Returned it to get repaired.  A few months later the exact same thing happened the same club. The store arranged for the whole set to get sent off to be checked.  Then just on Saturday past, the same thing happened to my pitching wedge. I returned to store yet again and they've sent the whole set off again.  My issue is that I've got zero confidence in the clubs. What can i do in this situation? I'm not in the position of splashing out on a whole new set of irons.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated. 
    • Your best golfing bargain
      I scored a set of MacGregor IMG woods for nz$1 (50p uk, 70c US). Maybe not the most exotic clubs. In fact, they'd aspire to being ordinary. But I can't complain about the price :)   bm
