Looking forward to testing these. I'm playing the E6 Speed, so I will probably try the E12 Speed.

$29.99. Hmmm seems a bit high.  Assuming this is the answer to the Callaway Superhot Bold which is the same price but for 15 balls.  

At $23-25 Iím in. But not $30.

Played two sleeves of this ball during the fall. I have been playing more of the premium balls the past few years like CS, B330, ProV1X. The only pitch I was given is that there is a ton of research that this reduced sideslin (like e7?)

Either way. My draw was piercing with this ball. That was the biggest learning experience off
The tee for me. My apex was definitely lower.

The short game? It feels firm but in a very good way. Full wedge shots were incredibly rewarding with plenty of height. Played in a rain storm and the cover grabbed my club face well.

Iím doing a ball fitting later this year and these will definitely be in the  mix. My drives took on another ball flight all together and thatís what I canít get over right now.

Does the matte finish feel slick like the Duo matte or Project S matte ? or does have a grabby silicon rubber heel like the Superhot Bold matte or 2018 Volvik Vivid ?

If they're anything like the E6 before they split it off into two lines, I'm interested.

If not, for $30 I'd rather play the Q-Star Tour.

I did a ball fitting at the PGA merch Show with them and I actually got fit for the TourB Rx.  I was surprised because I thought Iíd get fit for an e12 option for sure.  The Rx have the urethane cover where the e12 options do not from what I can tell.  I topped out at about 98 mph for the swing speed (not bad for not swinging since October I figure - Iím a mere mortal).  Did not get a chance to hit any e12ís but I like the matte finish.

No the E6 is staying, but dropping price to 21.99$. The E12 will be sold at 29.99$.

That may just be for show as the retailers burn off existing stock, doubtful that Bridgestone will be producing anymore of the e6 this year.

The Site That Shall Not Be Named did an exhaustive article about the e12, and it was stated that the e6 wasn't going anywhere.

I agree. I think this will be a good ball but no way I'd move away from the superhot bold when I get more for the same money.

Would it be a cop out if I said it wasnít like any of those? Not grippy matte finish. I canít recall having to slide under many lob shots with this ball. Full wedge shots sat and spun with no issue.

Plus I havenít had extensive time with matte balls except for the Duo U and Volviks

Held them in the store.  Definitely the slick matte finish which is a hard pass for me.  Callaway SH Bold And the 2018 Volvik Vivid got it right with the silcone grabby feel.
The new Supersoft matte ball has the same grabby feel. Canít wait for it to come out next month.  I think it will bury all the $30 matte balls.

Trying to compete with the Callaway Bold line it looks like. That matte red looks identical. If it plays similar off the irons it could be a winner.
