Pinnacle Rush and Pinnacle Soft golf balls

Published

on

Pinnacle’s new Rush and Soft golf balls ($15.99 per dozen) aren’t designed for golfers who like to talk about core constructions and cover formulations. Although if they did, they might be even more likely to buy a dozen of the bargain brand’s new balls.

Pinnacle golf balls are designed, tested and manufactured by Acushnet, the same company that makes Titleist golf balls, which dominates golf balls sales in pro shops and retailers across the country.

The Pinnacle Rush is available in White and Optic Yellow, while the Pinnacle Soft is available in White/Black and White/Pink and Pink/Black.

The most affordable Titleist golf ball, the new DT TruSoft, sells for $21.99 per dozen. With the two-piece Rush and Soft, the company feels confident that it can dominate in the under-$20 segment of the market as well.

“Pinnacle has been a longstanding leader in its segment of the market. Given our extensive performance testing of these products, we expect that this lead is likely to grow,” said Michael Mahoney, Director of Golf Ball Product Management for Acushnet. “Pinnacle Rush is either longer, or longer and softer, than other top selling distance competitors that retail under $20,” Pinnacle Soft is longer and softer than the leading competitive products positioned as extremely soft or low compression.”

The Pinnacle Rush is the company’s distance-focused ball, using a high-energy, low-compression core and a firm, ionomer cover to maximize distance on full-swing shots.

It’s available in both White and Optic yellow.

The Pinnacle Soft is even softer than Titleist’s DT TruSoft, and the softest-feeling golf ball the company has ever made. It uses Pinnacle’s lowest-compression, high-energy core along with a soft ionomer cover to create big distance from its low-spin design.

It’s available in three colors: white with black numbers, white with pink numbers and pink with black numbers.

    Got 3 softs free with a round at the Vines. I like the Titleist Velocity for distance and the proV1 on fast green courses. After the first 9 holes I binned the Pinnacles. They seem on par with a refurbished decent ball.

    Old post I know. But the Pinnacle Soft I picked up to try last week because I won’t play my Volvik S3 in fall.

    The ball is long. And it seems durable. Doesn’t check great on greens but it also doesn’t roll far away.

    For 15 bucks at Walmart it’s a great value.

    It has a strong roll out, very long.

    Thanks, I love the distance of the gold but these are being phased out so it appears the rush will be a good and possibly better replacement.

    Zak, how does the rush ball compare with the Pinnacle Gold?

Zozo Championship Tour Truck Report: Phil’s new driver and 2-wood, Tiger testing a new 3-wood

Published

on

Slower week than most at Sherwood but still a couple of nuggets—and who doesn’t love a Tiger/Phil equipment update?

Callaway

Phil Mickelson: After his (two drivers in the bag) win on the PGA Tour Champions, Lefty went full gearhead and continued to test not only the new Apex MB ’21 irons (6-PW) but also put a 47.5-inch Callaway Mavrik Sub Zero in the bag. The (low-lofted) 9-degree head, set now at 8 degrees (swing weight at D7) will be equipped with either a Project X HZURDUS Smoke Green 60 6.5 or a KBS TD 60G C5 TX.

In addition, Phil is bringing back the 2-wood having put a 43.5-inch, 12.5-degree “old school” X Hot 3 Deep. The idea with both is distance gain (non-shocker) for example on Tour there are a number of bunkers, forced carries at the 300+ clip and to be able to fly by those on command is a huge advantage. Dispersion will suffer a bit in this scenario, but that’s what the 2-wood is for. The new driver set up got Phil about 8 mph of additional ball speed and on avg a 310 carry. The 2 wood is to fill the larger gap created by the driver—this new fairway metal gives Phil about 280-285 carry.

Ping 

Tony Finau: Ping G425 LST (9 @7.5 Big-) with Diamana D+ 70TX tipped 1.5

Andrew Landry: Ping G425 LST (9 @8.75, flat) with Fujikura Ventus Blue 6X (46 Inches)

Joaquin Niemann: New Ping G425 7-wood (20.5 @20) in the bag with Graphite Design Tour AD DI 8X (20.5, 40.5 inches).

Titleist

Slow week, no major updates to report beyond Aaron Dill making 9,000 wedges for the players in early Augusta prep…

TaylorMade

Tiger Woods is testing a SIM Ti 3-wood with a Mitsubishi Chemical Diamana D+ 70 TX shaft. The 15-degree 3-wood is set at 14.25 and is on the upright setting. (42.5, D4, Golf Pride BCT 58R). Won’t know if it goes in play until tomorrow tee off…

Member Tourseeking – Rare Cameron Maiden America cover

There are rare, and then there are really rare covers and this falls squarely in the really rare category. It’s priced according but would make a great addition to any collection.

Member slalomdude – Ping Hoofer Tour bag

Were used to seeing rare and hard to find, but it’s not often Ping releases something that captures attention like this. The bag is new with tags and is being offered at a great deal!

Member awtryau89 – TaylorMade SIM Rocket 3-wood

This is truly one of the fastest little “rocket ship” fairway woods on the market, and this is your chance to get your hands on one for a great deal with a Graphite Design BB.
