Bridgestone e6 Golf Balls Review

Bridgestone 2021 e6 Golf Balls

The Bridgestone e6 golf ball has been around for over 15 years and remains a favorite for many moderate golfers because of its soft feel and decent distance off the tees. The newest model has added features for even better feel and improved overall performance.

How is the Redesigned 2021 e6 Ball Different Than Previous Models?

The new e6 has a softer, larger core with Bridgestone claiming that it provides a better feel and added distance. Since the newly designed ball doesn’t spin much off the tee, even average golfers will likely notice straighter, longer drives.

The two-piece constructed golf ball still has the Surlyn cover that was popular in earlier models, although it is thinner with the 2021 e6. Despite not spinning much off the tees, the thinner cover creates more spin around the greens, a win-win, especially for higher handicap golfers. Though thinner, the Surlyn cover is still very durable and will resist scratches and cuts from normal play.

Familiar Dimple Pattern

The Bridgestone e6 golf ball has a 330-dimple pattern, as does earlier models. The dimple pattern is known for providing good control around the green while still providing adequate carry in the wind.

What is the Difference Between the e6 and the e12?

The dimple pattern is one of the biggest differences between the new e6 and the e12 Contact golf balls. The dimple on each e12 ball has a raised center that is designed to slow horizontal during flight. This modification cuts down on sliced and hooked tee shots.

The e12 golf balls also come in a larger selection of colors for golfers who like a little variety in their game. A dozen of e6 golf balls is less expensive than e12 balls.

What Golfers Should Use the e6 Golf Ball?

Since the e6 is designed for golfers with moderate swing speed, it is not commonly used by professional golfers. Most PGA and LPGA golfers using Bridgestone golf balls prefer Tour B Series balls, including big hitters like Tiger Woods and Bryson DeChambeau. The e6 is better suited for mid- to high-handicap golfers or anyone who is willing to sacrifice distance for better feel around the green.

The Look

The Bridgestone e6 golf ball has the trademark “B” logo on one side and a long arrow-shape with e6 printed on the opposite side. The arrow helps with alignment when putting.

How Much Does the e6 Cost?

When compared to other top-brand golf balls, the new e6 comes at a great price. Expect to pay around $21 for a dozen of the balls in your choice or white or optic yellow.
