I briefly tried both about five years ago so neither were current models. The E5 had adequate spin but flew too high and was shorter than normal. I also didn't like the feel. The E6 had almost non-existent spin coming into greens (by design however). Neither ball fit my game.


Yep, that was my call about 5-8 years ago.

From reviews I've read, the balls have changed. I would not recognize them today.

From just a FEEL aspect id have to disagree. Theres just not a ball that FEELS better than the e6. Now in performance im not the biggest fan cus i cant keep the e6 on the greens or hit greenside floo shots close enough for my liking. But i think they they feel like hundred dollar bills when hit with a golf club. Now...if only they would spin

They do have an e6 that spins, its the B330-RX. More money but straight, putter soft, low driver side spin, and stops on a dime. You can always play for the e6 extra roll out too, but I like to go at the cup.

The B330RX has low side spin too? I may give it a go. Although, honestly I played with e6 today and it stopped fine on full shots into the green. On greenside chips maybe a little extra rollout, but nothing I couldn't plan for. Then again, I'm not typically playing on super slick greens either. I play $35-$50 greens fee type courses, so they're well kept, not hairy, but not slick either. Maybe if I played slicker greens I'd notice more roll out.

    • Day 201.  Played 18 holes today.  A course where I should have hit more than the 5 GIR I hit and should have shot lower than the 87 I did.  The driving range was closed before the round, and I hit my opening tee shot O.B..  😞  Not sure why I missed so many shots, especially driver, right.  Will have to do some outdoor practice to complement my indoor practice to ensure I'm not getting wild.

    • As a side note I do have one set of clubs aimed towards beginners and another set aimed towards better players and are "less forgiving". I honestly don't notice that much of a difference so I wonder if it's really that important.
