Pros: Distance, softness, low side spin
Cons: Concentric dimples
This is my first foray into the B330 line of Bridgestone balls, although I have on occasion played the e6 or e7. I have only had a few weeks with the product, but, so far, the performance is impressive, The first time playing this ball was on a day of relatively strong and gusty winds that affected almost all tee and approach shots. The Tour B330 excelled in these conditions. Tee shots seemed to penetrate the headwind gusts and held their trajectory in cross winds. I am a high ball hitter which is generally a hindrance in windy weather but felt l had complete control with this ball. Ensuing rounds were less breezy but the performance remained high. I rarely (cough... cough...) slice the ball with the driver but on the few tee shots that hinted at fading the side spin of the B330 was perceptibly subdued. Near the green the audition continued well. I normally play the Titleist NXT Tour and while the Tour B330 is a lower spin premium ball, it (the B330) spins more than the NXT. It is rare that I generate much backspin but several chips skipped and checked rather quickly. In fact, it took some time to adjust. On the green, the ball feels great off the putter face; soft yet responsive. My only complaint regarding this product, the dimples within the dimples, is minor, completely aesthetic, and almost assuredly mental. I realize the dimples are hardly apparent at address but I still know they are there. In summary, the Bridgestone Tour B330 is a solid, high-performance ball that rivals any ball at the premium price point.
