Several golf ball makers offer colored spheres these days, but the Acushnet Co.’s Pinnacle brand is taking color to a whole new level. When you buy a dozen-ball box of Pinnacle’s new Bling balls, you get four sleeves of three – and each sleeve is filled with a different color of balls.

The four shades – which Pinnacle calls High Optix colors – are orange, yellow, pink and violet, and they most definitely are high in optics.

The hues were designed by the Pinnacle research team to provide ultra-high visibility against blue and green, the colors golfers see during every round of play. The High Optix orange, pink and violet colors are brand-new additions, exclusive to Bling. High Optix yellow is also available in the brand's flagship Pinnacle Gold balls.

"Pinnacle Bling golf balls offer a unique and exciting preference option without sacrificing the extra distance and great feel that Pinnacle golf ball players rely on," said Michael Mahoney, the director of golf ball product management for Acushnet. "Bling provides the same excellent performance, quality and value of our Pinnacle Gold models but in four bright color choices."

The Bling balls utilize a high-energy core and soft cover to deliver long distance with a consistent ball flight, which is a trademark of the Pinnacle family. The Bling models feature a large, high-velocity, soft compression core wrapped in a soft ionomer cover blend with a 332 spherical icosahedral dimple design with seven different dimple sizes. This blend of attributes, says Pinnacle, gives golfers long distance on all shots as well as soft touch around the greens.

The balls are available now with a suggested retail price of $24 per dozen.
