Fortè Golf Balls are relatively new to the market. I was approached to give an honest assessment of their product and I am excited to put their golf balls to the test. Fortè is an Australian company created by avid golfers and their ball developed was focused on all level of players.
“We’ve created an entirely new formula for the golf ball. The softest ball we design helps those non-pros conquer difficulties—no matter the situation. That’s the entire reason we’ve created FORTÈ.” (Fortè Golf)
Fortè are focusing on the amateur golfer. It is refreshing to see a company focus on the major of golfers regardless of their skill level. “We design and create incredible balls perfect for you and your next game, not only want you to have great experiences, but we want to reawaken your passion for golf. We all have unique identities, and just like us, each type of ball has its own personality. We can’t wait to watch you play to your strengths and push beyond your limit. With FORTÈ, you don’t just know who you are—you know who you want to be.”
It will be interesting to actually hit the practice range in the spring. In the meantime, I have to longingly look at the 2 dozen balls they sent me just before Christmas. Here is what I am going to review in the spring.
The Tour Performance is a 3-piece ball “Ideal for players with who demands premium urethane covers ball at all skill levels. Increased short game spin control without sacrificing tee shot distance.” Fortè says it is a low compression golf ball, but I could not find an exact number.
I recommend a 3-piece ball is for mid to low handicap players who value spin around the green.
The Apex 6 is the first 6 piece golf ball. Fortè states that it is “Ideal for players who demands the best or nothing. Underneath the cast urethane cover is the world’s first 6 piece golf ball! It guarantees to outperform the competition in all aspect.”
I am very excited to try the Apex 6. I am intrigued to see if I can tell the difference between a 3-piece and 6-piece golf ball. I would think that this ball offers the best of all worlds – distance and spin control. I will have wait until I hit the practice range before finding out.
Reviewing golf balls, or any equipment, is always fun. I am continually looking for the right ball at the right price for my game and to share my findings with the readers at The Grateful Golfer. Thanks Fortè for sending me the Tour Performance and Apex 6 golf balls, this spring is going to be great fun!
I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
