First Look: Pinnacle gets some Bling with new balls
For those who value distance with a softer feel the new Pinnacle Gold ($15.99/15 pack), Gold Ribbon ($15.99/15 pack), and Bling ($18.99) models are right up your alley. The new Gold and Gold Ribbon combine a softer, high-speed core with a softer ionomer cover for added distance, feel, and better short game performance.
“Golfers love the powerful distance they get from any Pinnacle golf ball,” said Michael Mahoney, Director of Golf Ball Product Management, Acushnet Company. “When we asked those golfers what improvements they’d like to see, they wanted the same outstanding distance with even softer feel. That was our design goal, and it’s what R&D has delivered in the new Pinnacle Gold models.”
Pinnacle Gold models are available in bright white and high optix yellow while the Gold Ribbon comes in white and features the Susan G. Komen Foundation pink "Running Ribbon," logo in support of breast cancer awareness.
The Bling also offers added distance with a softer feel but comes in a variety of high-optix colors including white, pink, yellow, and orange. Bling balls come in multi-color dozens or just pink dozens. All new Pinnacle models are available in golf shops on October 1st.
Pinnacle supports The Folds of Honor Foundation, which empowers military families with educational support by providing scholarships to the spouses and children of service members disabled or killed as a result of their military service to the United States. In addition to providing a financial contribution to the organization, Pinnacle features the Folds of Honor logo and information on its Pinnacle Gold packaging in an effort to increase awareness. Pinnacle is also a proud supporter of Patriot Golf Day, the Folds of Honor’s flagship fundraiser, which is held annually over Labor Day weekend and is the largest grassroots golf platform in the country.
