On a recent trip to Dick’s sporting goods, I found the Bridgestone Treo Soft ball on sale for two boxes for $30; so I decided to give them a try. The TreoSoft is a two piece ball, meaning it has a large core and an outer cover. The core employs some very cool and innovative technology. Rather than being one density throughout, the core changes in density from center out. This “soft gradational compression” results in more energy transfer at impact and helps moderate swing golfers gain more distance. Despite having what some would call a “hard” cover, I can attest that this core gives the TreoSoft an extremely soft feel. The ball comes with the signature 330 dimple pattern found in most Bridgestone golf balls today.
- Reduced Side Spin off the Club face
- Soft feel around the greens
- Possibly being discontinued
- Good distance, but not as good as E6
I have heard Bridgestone is discontinuing the Treosoft but I haven’t found anything official on that yet. Hopefully they do not because this ball is great and has a good price. For a ball designed for distance, this ball has a nice feel around the greens and rolls true off the putter. The ball isn’t quite as long as a little bit more pricey distance balls, but still a great ball for distance and control.
