Hot List 2008: Golf Balls

Golf Balls

February 2008
Gold: Balls / $40+

BRIDGESTONE B330/B330-S

STREET PRICE: $40/dozen
WEBSITE: bridgestonegolf.com
TECH STORY
An efficient, injection-molding production process allows more balls to be made from fewer cavities. The result is greater manufacturing consistency. Seamless dimples are slightly deeper than the previous generation for a lower flight.

PLAYER COMMENTS
"It's a hair longer than other balls off the irons. . . . Cushy feel."

CALLAWAY TOUR i/TOUR iX

STREET PRICE: $45/dozen
WEBSITE: callawaygolf.com
TECH STORY
A tungsten-infused outer core and a high-density mantle layer are designed to shift weight farther from the dual core to maximize the moment of inertia. The purpose is to reduce spin for straight tee shots and optimal distance.

PLAYER COMMENTS
"Consistent trajectory off the tee. . . . Good chew on chips and flops."

TITLEIST PRO V1/PRO V1X

STREET PRICE: $45/dozen
WEBSITE: titleist.com
TECH STORY
There's maximum dimple coverage because of the "staggered wave parting line," what the company calls its entrance into hidden-seam design. The arrow-alignment stamp on the side is also new.

PLAYER COMMENTS
"The best ball. . . . Handles the low-spinning wedge like none other."
Gold: Balls / $21-$30

BRIDGESTONE e5+

STREET PRICE: $25/dozen
WEBSITE: bridgestonegolf.com
TECH STORY
A two-piece urethane construction is designed to maximize the tangential force of the clubface to generate spin for high launch and carry.

PLAYER COMMENTS
"The feel is very close to a player's ball."
