Bridgestone E12 Soft Vs. Callaway Supersoft Golf Ball Comparison Overview
Golf ball manufacturers have given the every day golfer a glut of options. So much so that your typical golfer will at some point or another ponder the question, “do I need soft golf balls or really soft golf balls?”
There are simply too many different types of golf balls on the market and just when you thought they couldn’t get any softer, a newer, softer model comes out.
To help you decide we tested 2 staples in the soft golf ball market.
Bridgestone E12 Soft Golf Balls Comparison Overview
The Bridgestone E12 Soft golf balls have a compression rating of 50 which, should be soft enough for players in the mid to high handicap range.
50 is a nice middle-ground between distance and performance balls; but they definitely lean more towards the distance category.
What’s nice about these balls is that they sport a 3-piece construction which gives them a little something extra when you need to spin the ball more around the green.
Off the tee though, don’t expect very much side or back spin at all. The Bridgestone E12 Soft balls do a great job of transferring club head energy and holding straight lines.
While they are not as soft as the Callaway Supersoft (very few balls are), they are more helpful with control off the deck and near the green.
Callaway Supersoft Golf Balls Overview
The Callaway Supersoft balls have a ridiculous compression rating of 38, making them one of the softest golf balls you can currently buy.
We can’t put into words how soft these balls feel off the tee. They lack a substantial feel but they were still yielding very impressive carry distance on drives.
For our slower swing speed testers, the Callaway Supersoft balls were flying an average of 15 yards further than the Bridgestone E12 Soft balls!
We were also impressed with the launch angles we were getting off the deck. The Supersoft balls launch very high very easily so they are great if you need to get over some hazards or out of the rough.
Tough lies in general were easier with these balls.
Unless you are brand new to the game, we can’t imagine very many situations where you would need a ball as soft as the Callaway Supersoft balls. The Bridgestone E12 Soft balls offer more well-rounded performance from tee to pin.
