<div class="IPBDescription">Black Max or the e6?</div>I've got a great offer on these 2 balls and can't really decide which one to choose <img src='http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/dntknw.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> . I'm playing around a 4-8 hcp.<br />
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. <br />
Any one has a comment on this to help me choose the right ball?<br />

    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.<br />
    <br />
    IN either case make sure to get the E5+/E6+ ans not the E5/E6

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

    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.<br />
