Bridgestone e12 Contact: Can a Surlyn Ball Spin?

The Bridgestone e12 Contact golf ball came out earlier this year and we have received a number of questions asking about spin on approach shots. Can you hold greens? Does the cover impact approach shots on full swings?

We hopped into the hitting bay in the THP Tech Studio to test it out and see. Watch the video below as we take different scoring irons and take multiple swings and examine the data to see how well this multi-layer surlyn ball with a unique dimple pattern works out.

Does the data in the video above match up with your personal experiences with surlyn covered golf balls? Have you given the new Bridgestone e12 Contact a try before?

One of the often misunderstood aspects of golf balls is that the cover is what is helping to create spin on all shots. While this is true to an extent, it has far more impact the closer you get to the green. Specifically around the green.

Golf ball fitting continues to pick up steam and with a plethora of choices that exist, it makes perfect sense to find the best performance for your game. Previously we featured a video that showed how much difference can exist on just irons, from one ball to the next based on a proper fit (a full club in irons). If you missed that video and want to check it out, it’s here.

If you think the e12 Contact from Bridgestone is one you want to try out, you can find more information or pick some up directly, right here on their website.
