You are correct, they first came out with the e6, then changed the packaging in 2009/10 to e6+, now for 2011 they are back to the e6. I have played them, off and on, for the last 3 or 4 years and find them to be a solid ball. While I am always on the search for my new favorite ball, I always seem to compare what ever I am playing with the e6. You can't go wrong playing it.

I've played the e6 for a couple years and it's by far my favorite ball. Got 2 dozen orange for Christmas and a dozen white e6's. Just bought 2 dozen Bridgestone TreoSoft for $30 at Dick's. Golf Pro said the were exactly like the e6 but softer. If they are even close I'll be happy.

Well I know what I am trying next.  When I go to pick up the R11 I am set on getting a box of these as well. I haven't heard a bad thing about them yet.

Got my only Hole in One with an e6 ball.  I love them for my game.

What do they run normally for a box?  Wheres the cheapest to buy without buying online?

They are okay, but I prefer Nike PD soft to these, and they are much cheaper.  I'd rather pay the extra 4 bucks/dozen and get NXT Tour though

Whats the difference between the e6 and the e7 balls?  I was just trying to figure out which I want to pick up when I go for my driver fitting.

$26 at Dick's Sporting Goods. Can't beat the price for a 3 piece ball!!

e6 helps with slicing and hooking. e7 lowers the trajectory if you hit a high ball. I love the e6. I'll use it as my primary ball and a Titleist as a backup.

Also the e6 is for swing speeds around 85-100 i think, the e7 is for higher speeds... I play the e7, and am so jealous that they don't have the colored balls in the e7! I played the Srixon's for a while just so i could play the yellow ball (they were way to soft)... it's so easy to see on cloudy days too!

 They're pretty much the same as a D2 Top Flite. They're good balls, but nothing earth shattering.

I figured but Id like a solid ball for a decent price until I play well enough to deserve a high priced ball.

At our level of play, we have to decide if the people who'll find them later (while trudging through the weeds), deserve a high priced ball.

My swing speed (driver) is around 105-108, and I've been playing mostly TaylorMade TP Black/Reds for the last year and a half.  I found what appeared to be a brand new e6 during a round last month and put it into play-very surprised and pleased.  I've tried the e7 and it was solid (but no better than Gamers or D2 Feels), and the e5 is a great buy for a urethane-covered ball.  The e6 was incredibly solid all around, probably not the best in any category, but good everywhere I used it.  Feels soft, long off the tee, I managed not to lose it the rest of the round, and it checked up nicely.  Not like a TP Black/Red or ProV1, but on mid/long iron shots it seemed to stop in the general area of where it landed.  Hit some great bunker shots with it too, chipping in general was nice, I played for a little bit more roll out than with a TP Red and had no problems.  I picked up a box of the orange ones about a months ago.  It's got some sort of slick coating, similar to a D2 Strait.  Not sure if it actually reduces sidespin for me, but I do know that a slice or hook with the driver hasn't seemed as severe as normal.  I prefer it to the NXT Tour, performance seems similar/slightly better and it's definitely more durable.  I'm not sure if it's worth the premium over a Gamer or D2 Feel, but on its own merits it's definitely worth the price being charged, and the orange/yellow option is nice.

Ha Ha!  Good one.  I've decided no one deserves to find a ball I hit that works out to more than $30/box, usually $20 or less.  I'm actually going to try out the Wilson Staff 50 Elite next time I get out based on good reviews I've read and the $16/box price.  Only putted with 'em so far and they do feel soft.

Those are my three favorite balls. I don't like urethane covers and cores designed for super fast swing speeds, so these three are a nice compromise in low spin/soft feel that works well for my swing speed. The NXT Tour are by far the least durable of the three, but probably spin a touch more than the PD softs or E6's. I can't really tell much of a difference between the Bridgestones and the Nike's, but I like the orange E6's for the "that's definitely not your ball" factor, though.

How would you guys rate these for spinning back on a green?
