Let me start by saying I have been hitting Titleist NXT Tour golf balls for a very long time and I just recently made a change. I am not a scratch golfer by any means and in fact I currently have a 10 handicap, so I am just reviewing this product to let others know what I experienced with this ball. I love the feel of the Titleist NXT Tour balls and the performance they offer through out the years. I will tell you from my experience with Titleist NXT's is that they really do have a lot of side spin, which in my case means I hit fewer fairways with my natural draw spin. This is why I switched to the Bridgestone E6 ball recently. Let me tell you that this ball drastically hits much straighter for me and the distance is the same as the NXT 's. In fact I played a scramble tournament last week and I won the long drive contest with these Bridgestone E6 balls. They feel soft as the Titleist in my opinion and really fly straight. I can work the ball with a draw, but not like the NXT's. If you want a ball for workability, then I would try the Titleist NXT Tour, but if you want a straighter ball flight, then definately try the Bridgestone E6 ball. I have read reviews that mentioned the E6's would not hold the green as well, but I have a fairly high launch ball flight, so I noticed no difference on holding greens. The Titleist and Bridgestone balls hold the same for my ball flight and they both putt the same for feel for me as well. I switched and all I know to tell you is the Bridgestone E6 balls are staying in my bag from now on and highly recommend them to anyone wanting a performance ball, that will fly straighter for you. These E6's were also listed as a GOLD pick IN THE 2010 Golf Digest ball list. Go tee one up and judge for yourself!
