COVINGTON, Ga. – (May 7, 2019) – Bridgestone Golf, the #1 Ball-Fitter in Golf, announced today that it has reformulated its e6 golf ball to afford fantastic value for moderate-swing-speed players who seek maximum driving distance and buttery soft feel.
The new Bridgestone Golf e6 features a 2-piece, low-compression construction to ensure that players with slower swing speeds can fully activate the core on tee shots, delivering increased distance throughout the bag. The new ball also provides players with a super soft feel thanks to its low compression core.
“The e-Family of Bridgestone golf balls keeps getting better and better,” said Elliot Mellow, Golf Ball Marketing Manager – Bridgestone Golf. “With the recent introduction of e12 SOFT and SPEED, we’ve ensured that players who love the feel and playability of a 3-piece, surlyn construction golf ball have two distinct swing speed options in our e-product lineup. In addition, now we have reformulated the e6 to provide a more economical option for consumers who are seeking distance and super soft feel.”
Complementing the new e6 golf ball is the slightly lower compression e6 LADY. Delivering the same reliable distance with an even softer feel, the e6 LADY is designed to help female players get the ball air born easier and provide added distance on shots where it is needed most.
Bridgestone’s reformulated e6 golf balls hit stores this week with a retail price of $21.99 per dozen. The e6 is available in white and optic yellow color options, while the e6 LADY is available in white and optic pink hues.
