Trusoft and Pinnacle Soft are different balls in terms of dimples.  They have different numbers of dimples.  Trusoft has more rhan Pinnacle Soft.

I have been playing Pinnacle Soft past 3 weeks at 3 different courses where have hard and fast greens. PS performs marvelously.

Are they as long as the DDT Trusoft? Irons and driver?

I cannot compare to trusoft but PS went as far as snell mtb would go. i gamed Bridgestone Extra Soft on the second day.  ES felt bit clickier and came short of PS.

PS also performed well on green too.  Perhaps I normally put lotta spin on my wedge shots and it tends to fly higher.  

For me, PS is clear winner of sub $20 ball considering market price, feel, performance and overall value.

I've played both PS and Extra Soft and prefer ES. The clickier (some feel) is what separates it from other sub 20 soft balls. Plus, it has one of the better yellow colors. Perhaps, that makes it best for me. Without yellow, it
would likely be a tie between the two balls.

Currently dsg & gg are dumping PS.  I got them for 60% of the msrp.  Go get thwm b4 gone.  In SoCal, very hard to find them except women's.

The E6 Soft played well.  Thought it was an improvement over the old E6.    Two dozen for $50 maybe could get another $10 off of that.  Haven't tried the Pinnacle Soft yet but will look for some deals.

As PS sold less than $10 including tax, everything else seems to be too expensive.  LOL

Top flite d2 feel
Good ball but D2 Distance is better imo. Would probably make my all time top 10 favorite ball list and would be second fave 2 piece surlyn behind original ev extra spin.
And that's coming from a lifetime ball snob. I honestly think they are that good.

do you think Bridgestone Extra Spin is rebranded EV Extra Spin?
I'd be ecstatic if it was. That was favorite ball back in the day. I loved the feel and distance, and got heaps of bite. Not durable though, every wedge left huge gill marks.

My experience with Extra Spin was not pleasant.  It was rather clicky than soft as advertised.  Also, short on distance.
