Bridgestone Golf: New e6 Golf Ball Provides Enhanced Feel and Longer Distance

bridgestone_e6_Golf_BallBridgestone Golf announced that the new e6, the longest-running and historically biggest-selling model in the company’s lineup, is now redesigned to provide a softer, more pleasing feel at impact with maximum distance for value-minded players.

After 15 years of success, the e6 is still going strong, with a new design aimed at players that want an exceptionally soft feel and pleasing sound at impact without giving up any distance off the tee. In the case of the new e6, those that don’t have Tour-level swing speed will greatly benefit from the soft, extremely large gradient core and Bridgestone’s advanced dimple technology and aerodynamics. As always, a seamless Surlyn cover helps provide a combination of speed, distance, and exceptional durability.

“We’ve had an incredible run with the e6,” said Elliot Mellow, Golf Ball Marketing Manager at Bridgestone Golf. “It’s the mainstay of the e-Family and Bridgestone’s biggest selling two-piece Surlyn golf ball model to date. The e6 understandably has a lot of fans, and the enhanced feel of the new design is sure to please. The added distance and forgiveness on off-center hits are an added bonus.”

The two-piece Bridgestone e6 will be at retail in late January 2023 and will feature a $24.99 per dozen street price.  It will be available in white and optic yellow.

Bridgestone Golf:  e9 Long Drive Ball

bridgestone_e9_Golf_BallBridgestone Golf has announced the new e9 Long Drive, a new golf ball designed in conjunction with World Long Drive professionals.  The new e9, the Official Ball of World Long Drive, will be used in all WLD competitions and is the longest ball in the Bridgestone Golf portfolio.

The new ball, which is aimed at players looking for maximum carry and the ultimate in overall distance, features a two-piece construction with injection molded seamless Surlyn cover and Bridgestone’s Tour-proven 330 dimple pattern. An extreme gradational core (softer in the center, firmer toward the exterior) promotes extreme ball speed and lower long-game spin. The uniquely-designed e9 Long Drive also offers higher launch, more carry, and more overall efficiency.

“It was great to work with the athletes from World Long Drive to develop the new e9,” said David Vogrin, Bridgestone’s Director of Marketing. “Innovation that leads to advanced performance is always our focus, and with over 900 Polymer engineers on staff and pioneering technologies like our gradational core and seamless cover, we’re confident this new golf ball will provide exceptional distance for professional long drivers but more importantly for recreational golfers.  This is the ball you will take out for the long drive hole in a scramble and end up using for the entire round.”

Though the e9 Long Drive was designed with input from professional long drivers and will be used in all official WLD events in 2023, it is also ideal for players who don’t possess long-drive swing speeds. Unlike many distance-oriented models aimed at faster swingers, the e9 Long Drive was designed with a slightly lower compression core, making it a great choice for anyone, including average swingers, who desire higher launch, more speed, and longer carry distance.

“Long drive competitors and recreational golfers alike play in a variety of turf conditions, some of which don’t allow for much roll,” said Elliot Mellow, Golf Ball Marketing Manager for Bridgestone Golf. “Through our work with WLD contestants we determined that the e9 Long Drive would need to promote maximum carry for optimum performance, as well as less driver spin. Our engineers combined Bridgestone’s gradational core design with our aerodynamically superior 330-dimple pattern to develop an impressive package.”

The two-piece Bridgestone e9 Long Drive will be available (classic white only) at retail in March 2023 with a street price of $29.99 per dozen.
