What we say...
YOU NEED TO KNOW:
A soft urethane covered ball. The core's size and compression are optimised to turn energy to ball speed while also feeling soft. A thin, fast mantle layer controls spin, and a soft durable cover offers great control on short game shots.
Pearl are a prime example of how the way golfers buy balls has changed. Like Vice you buy direct from their website, cutting out the middle man, which means Pearl offers a urethane covered ball for less than half the price of the market leader. Is it any good? Data shows wedge spin was within 500rpm of the best, driver carry distance was nine yards down on the longest (but more distance orientated) Titleist Velocity and five yards back from the comparable Vice Pro. Our pros numbers also had more variation (with bigger peaks and troughs between speed, spin and carry) than others.
If you can run to buying 3 dozen at a time the Pure Soft represents excellent value. We certainly aren't saying you won't be able to tell the difference between it and a tour ball, but for golfers who can't justify £50 a dozen and want to stretch their cash to the limit, it should be on your golf ball radar.
