I know there are a bunch of compare and contrast threads across the intarweb but out of curiosity I ordered an ammo box of the Gamer v2's. All the great reviews and thoughts I read about them I figured, what could really go wrong? Not to mention, with my handicap, it probably doesn't matter. I currently play Bridgestone e5s and I just received my Gamer v2's today. I had my clubs in my truck from this mornings range session so I decided to grab my putter out of my truck as well as an e5 and do a little comparing of how it feels off my putter. I putted for probably the last hour of "work" since we were dead. When I got home, I grabbed my LW and tried some pitch/chip/flop shots into my couch with both balls.
I'm not that good at golf and/or knowledgeable so I wanted to put my thoughts on here as well as hear what others who have played both balls have to say.
So my thoughts are, with the putting of both balls, the e5 feels heavier and less responsive than the Gamer v2. I feel like I really had a grip on what was happening when I hit the Gamer v2. When I pulled out the LW, it was the same feeling. I feel like they have similar spin off the carpet but my differ in thicker rough or with more power/swing speed. The shot I was able to hit were only soft ones since I was going maybe like 10 feet to my couch cushion. I felt again like the Gamer v2 was more responsive and like I just felt more feedback..*shrugs* I can't wait to play these balls this weekend on the course and see what happens with my thoughts about the ball.
I have no idea how that all will sound or if any of it makes sense but they're just my thoughts.
What do those who have played both of these balls think?
