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?
