I've got a great offer on these 2 balls and can't really decide which one to choose :) . I'm playing around a 4-8 hcp.
I've tried to read as much as possible about the two balls, and I've tested the Black Max which I found very similar to the old Rev Tour I used to play. I guess I find Black Max a bit shorter than most other balls (Pro V1 for instance) but it has a nice feel. I haven't had a chace to test e6 but I've read mostly good stuff about it and that it reduces side spin of the driver but lacks a bit spin around the green.
Any one has a comment on this to help me choose the right ball?

Thanks

Here in the States the BlackMax has discontinued for 3 yrs now............. the E6+ is a very solid,soft low spin ball.

The Black Max is probably a better ball if you can still get them new. With your handicap, the e6+ may NOT spin enough for you.....

May want to try the E5+ it spins more.

IN either case make sure to get the E5+/E6+ ans not the E5/E6

the black max has for a long time been on offer for $13.99 at golfsmith......they are now $10.97.  they have practice on it but that's hardly a distraction.  i picked up 4 dozen last night with free shipping

I'm a happy e6 user and have some e6+ ready to go when spring arrives.  

IME they feel like a soft ball but roll out like a distance ball on certain shots.  I hit the ball high and I don't have pinpoint distance control, so the roll out isn't a factor to my game.  I tend to play a lot of bump and run shots if the situation warrants.  For me the e6 works.

You could buy a sleeve and not exactly break the bank.  :)
