Bridgestone is suing Titleist over supposed patent infringements. They’ve apparently been “discussing” said infringements for “months” with no settlement. Bridgestone claims Titleist (Acushnet) balls including TitleistÂ® Pro V1â„¢, the TitleistÂ® Pro V1xâ„¢, the TitleistÂ® NXTâ„¢, TitleistÂ® NXT Tour, the TitleistÂ® DT SoLo, and the PinnacleÂ® Exceptionâ„¢ golf balls are all in violation.
I wonder if it is just a coincidence that about 1 week before this news becomes public, Titleist announces completely “New” versions of their golf balls. Did they change the manufacturing process or some technology in the “new” version to avoid further claims from Bridgestone?
My pals over at The Sand Trap cover this in a little more detail.
