Anybody know any good deals on bridgestone e6 balls? Looking to buy a bunch but would love a nice discount.

If you don't mind last years model you can buy 6 dozen for around $90 on eBay

It depends on the model. The $25/dz model whatever that one is... Is pretty soft. Then they also have the 20XI that isn't like hitting a goddamn rock.

Thanks just saw some I could get 6 dozen for 72 which I might do but Golf Galaxy has Z star balls on sale for 30 bucks per dozen instead of 44 so I am considering just getting like 3 dozen of those for now. Decisions decisions

While playing on an empty course yesterday and after giving up on any kind of good score (windy, rainy and cold), I ended up picking up a "few" golf balls in the woods and ravines at my course. I ended up with 40+ including 12 or so Titleists. That was just the low hanging fruit. I left a bunch out there.

I don't know much about which balls are best for a high capper like myself. There are some that seem better than others, but I've never done any sort of real research. I'll use the ProV's as practice balls to hit into the field. I think they are probably the most common balls I find.

I almost never buy new balls.  I find them on the course, buy them at a pawn shop type of place a few towns away that sells them for .25 a piece (except $1 for ProV1s), or get them from the $.50 bin at my course if I get there the right day.

I get a kick out of the pawn shop place because the guy is quick to sternly tell you that the ProV1s are a dollar...the best deal you'll ever find for them...but then I walk out with dozen Z-stars or Pentas for a quarter each....ok whatever, dude.

Then at my course they put the shiny Top-Flights, Pinnacles, etc. in the $1 bin, but the tour balls with slightly darker covers go in the $.50 bin.  If you get there the day they fill the bin you can get 20 brand new looking tour balls, but if you miss out, you might find one or two.

The thing you have to watch out for is balls that have been sitting in a pond over the winter.  I check for the newer looking ones and leave the ones that have scuffs or paint chipped off of them.  ProV1s especially have covers that chip easily, showing the yellow under-layer...I think this shows the ones that have sat under water too long.

I just can't see spending $20 or more for a dozen balls...they are so easy to find on the course or in a used bin...especially the ones where the seller doesn't know the difference between them.

Thought I'd pass this news along to those of you looking for a quality golf ball at a low price. I just left Dick's Sporting Goods after buying two boxes (2 doz) Top Flite Gamers for the sale price of $30. Plus a box of 15 Pinnacle Golds to try for $15.95

The Maxfli Softfli at 2 dozen for $25 is a steal if you like 2 piece low compression golf balls (Supersoft, PD Soft, etc.).  IMO it is the best of the bunch and least expensive.

I've found that Srixon AD333s and Soft Feels both play quite nicely for their price! I'm dying to try some Callaway Super Softs out. Found one on the course last time out, I may just tee it up this weekend!

I tried a couple super softs but they were just too soft for me. I think they're targeted at quite slow swing speeds. BTW, just ordered 3 doz Taylormade Project (a) "practice" aka x-outs for $45 at rockbottom.

    • That’s a solid post Erik. 
    • Day 505 - May 16, 2021 Played 18 holes of irons-only (hit one driver on 15) with Sculley. Really focused on some short game shots, too.
    • Seriously. Also, we saw your post earlier, @David in FL, but it's as dumb the second time as it was the first time. In addition to what Dan said above, here is another article from the WHO: The effects of virus variants on COVID-19 vaccines The text in bold is quotes from that article: The COVID-19 vaccines that are currently in development or have been approved are expected to provide at least some protection against new virus variants because these vaccines elicit a broad immune response involving a range of antibodies and cells. Hmmmm. How can we prevent future new variants of the COVID-19 virus? Stopping the spread at the source remains key. Current measures to reduce transmission – including frequent hand washing, wearing a mask, physical distancing, good ventilation and avoiding crowded places or closed settings – continue to work against new variants by reducing the amount of viral transmission and therefore also reducing opportunities for the virus to mutate. Scaling up vaccine manufacturing and rolling out vaccines as quickly and widely as possible will also be critical ways of protecting people before they are exposed to the virus and the risk of new variants. Why is it important to get vaccinated even if there are new variants of the virus? Vaccines are a critical tool in the battle against COVID-19, and there are clear public health and lifesaving benefits to using the tools we already have. We must not put off getting vaccinated because of our concerns about new variants, and we must proceed with vaccination even if the vaccines may be somewhat less effective against some of the COVID-19 virus variants. So the scorecard: Vaccinated people: Are nearly 100% protected from the majority of strains/variants of COVID-19. Are "somewhat" protected against every variant of COVID-19. Have a very low chance of catching COVID and an even lower chance of passing it on to someone. Are helping to reduce the creation of new variants. Dave's peeps: Aren't protected at all against the majority of strains/variants of COVID-19. Aren't protected against any variant. Have only a reduced chance of catching COVID-19 because other people are being good members of society and getting vaccinated. Are not helping to reduce the creation of new variants. Your "we don't know how the vaccine handles new variants" is a bullshit excuse not to get vaccinated because every vaccine out there is more effective against every variant than not getting vaccinated at all. You're being selfish while conning yourself into thinking you're being "prudent." Nobody would rationally define "prudent" the way you're choosing to. Nobody who understands the mountains of data out there. What you are calling "prudent" is what most may call "selfish."
    • If I got held up by a group of guys playing this in front of me….someone’s going home with a broken toy. Lol.
    • DAVID, MY ARTICLE BEATS YOUR ARTICLE. The most serious vaccine side effects in history have all been caught within six weeks, said Dr. Paul Offit, director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children's Hospital in Philadelphia and a member of the FDA's Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee.   Covid-19 vaccine myths: These reasons for not getting a shot don't hold up. In fact, they'll set the US back Here are some of the most popular arguments for not getting vaccinated and why doctors want to set the record straight.
