    Heck I know I over thought it. Iím sure partial shots lose a lot - Iíll need to do a bit more testing (aka have some fun, really twisting my arm here)

    Hello - Ok back with some feedback. Really starting to like this ball, the e12 Soft, as I see more distance than the TB RX and the TB XS. My SS is 92-94 so the lower compression of the e12(I had read 50) and less spin really helps off the driver and irons. As for the short game it checked up just fine. Since its lower spinning than the other two tested it didnt spin as much, put I was fine with the green side performance. Since I'm always looking for distance I will take the extra few yards on the drives and fairways over less spin. Feel is nice, more of a muted thump I would say.
    I have always been a big fan or Bridgestone and been playing them for as long as I can remember. Have had splashes with other balls, but always come back to Bridgestone. I think if you like the RX and would like more distance and a lower price point, the e12 Soft is a great option.
    Plan to add more feed back as I get more playing time in.
    Congrats on a job well done Bridgestone!

    My swing has decided to abandon me this week, for some reason. I am getting nothing useful on the sim, and the 12" of snow is keeping me from testing in the wild.

    Hopefully I figure out where my swing went off to, so I can contribute something meaningful this week.

    Hope to get out on the course Thursday for some full swing testing. Between rain and the flu I haven't played a round in a month.

    Really do not like the “rubbery” feel on the matte yellow. Do the white balls have same feel?

    At this rate I'm not sure if my knee is going to heal faster or if the weather is going to break here in Chicagoland to get to play golf....When I'm able to start swinging and playing, I'm really looking forward to testing these e12 soft ones out though.

    Spent some sim time tonight and getting the groove back. Once I was confident, I again did a long drive with ProV1, TP5 and the e12 Soft. First two, 251, e soft, 264. All with low to mid 90s swing speed. Biggest difference is the e12 takes off some of the too much spin I put on the ball.

    I may hit RTJ Trail myself (Oxmoor Valley) depending on how I'm swinging it.

    Round 2 for the e12 Soft vs ERC Soft will be happening this week!
    Interested to hear your results. I tested (indoors) the e12 soft and the ERC and found that the ERC provided a little more spin off the irons and wedges. Did not test driver. ERC also seemed to get a little more distance.

    I also liked the feel of the ERC off the putter - I'm using a Stroke Lab One putter so it's a face insert which tends to minimize the feel. However, I also tested using a Scotty Cameron Newport 2 and liked the feel of the ERC a little more. Seemed to be more consistent on distance control when putting. I found it very similar to the Bridgestone Tour B RX which is what I have been using for a year now.

    I'm headed to Laughlin, NV this weekend and will be taking some of both along for some on course testing. I'll post results when I get back.

    Sounds good! I didnít get a chance to hit them today on the simulator but Iíll try to get some numbers maybe later this week. Iím not too consistent so it could be a day to day performance leader.
