Bridgestone Golf 2014 Tour B330 RX Golf Balls Reviews

A very durable ball if you do not wish to work the ball.

Posted

Pros: Very durable, great for hop and stop iron play and straight off of the driver.

Cons: Does not allow for working the ball side to side.

~~I need to preface this review: I was fitted online for Tour B330, what I received from Bridgestone was Tour B330RX. As I have never played any type of Bridgestone ball I did not think anything of it until after playing three rounds with these balls.   That being said:   1) The first round I played with the B330RX and felt that I simply had a bad day since I had allot of straight push misses and ended up short on quite a few approaches. Overall I thought that the ball felt soft off of every club except for the putter. The flight seemed to be a little low off of the driver but seemed fine off of my irons.   2) The second round that I played with the B330RX I decided...

My take on the Bridgestone B330 RXS

Posted

Pros: Durabiltity

Cons: Driver Spin

This will be short and sweet. - Spin Approach shots: Everything -- and I mean EVERYTHING -- stopped and grabbed immediately (from wedge to 5-iron). Around the greens: GREAT, allowing to be aggressive going at pins if short-sided. - Feel/sound I'm not picky in this area, but had zero complaints. - Distance Off the tee: My spin rate is a little high anyway, so I didn't get great distance off the tee. But based on other attributes of the ball, it's well worth it. - Durability I saved this for last because I think it's important. I found the B330 RSX to be absolutely SUPERIOR in terms of durability. Compared to ProV1's, the Bridgestone was much more durable unless you hit a tree at...

SOLID, great all around ball

Posted

Pros: Nice flight, nice off the putter, good distance, very durable

Cons: Pricey,more expensive than my normal gamer

When I was picked to test these balls out I was elated.  I have only one experience with Bridgestone balls and that was the 2010 e-5.  I was definitely dissatisfied with those balls.  Felt like hitting rocks.  I was quite pleasantly surprised with the new Tour B330RX.   I will break this down to 5 different categories: Distance, Spin, Putting, Durability and Overall Feelings.     A little background on me.  I am about a 20 handicap, shoot mid 90's but can score as low as mid 80's or up to 110.  My swing speed with driver is about 98-100.  My normal gamer is a Callaway Chrome +.   Distance:  I think that...

A good eveyday premium ball

Posted

Pros: Durable soft feeling ball

Cons: Doesn't float

I got the Bridgestone B330 RX to review. Without access to either a TrackMan or FlightScope I can't really say much about the relative length vis a vis other balls from an empirical standpoint. I do have a Game Golf device but the result have been inconclusive. I am sure most, if not all variation, is due to the vagaries and variations found in the swing of an amateur (i.e. me) whose index can swing from 9.5 to 12.2 and back in any given two month measuring period.  I will say that it is every bit as long as the Titleist ProV1x and Callaway SR.   I took the Bridgestone ball test at their display in Orlando in January to verify that I was in fact using the correct ball in the...

Solid performer

Posted

Pros: Consistent feel, excellent heighth, good distance, durable, optic yellow available

Cons: a little less spin than what I like, price is a little high

The B330RX is an all around good ball for players with swing speeds shy of 105 it's flight characteristics and distance rival all other high end urethane balls if not passing them in this market. I played at least 5 rounds with the B330RX and came away with nothing but good things to say about it, not once during any round did I ever feel I was being compromised for the shot I wanted to hit because of the ball. Best shot to date with a B330RX was a 3 wood from 241 yards to pin, ball flew straight and true wound up 25' past the pin. This ball putts very true with a good feel that works well on quick greens. Approach shots had to be played a few yards shorter than my normal ball just...

A solid performer

Pros: Very durable, soft, nice sound

Cons: Pricey

I have been able to play 3 rounds with these balls. My usual ball is the Penta TP5. I would say there is little noticable difference between this ball and the Penta. I feel this ball has less spin around the greens. These have the classic dimple within a dimple look which may not be for everyone, but otherwise this feels like a premium ball when you hold it. From the limited time I have used these I do feel my driver distance has increased some due to roll but I have also not held the green as much as with the Penta TP5. I would convert to these, price being equal.

A good all-around ball.

Pros: Very controllable

I received the Tour B330-Rx. I've been playing for about a year and usually play the Pro v1 (because I get them for free from a neighbor).   - Durability      The first thing I noticed about the Bridgestone ball was the durability. After several holes there was little sign of scuffing at all. In fact I played two rounds before I tossed it into the practice bucket.   - Feel/sound    Noticeable softer feel and sound, especially off the putter.   - Distance      My average drives are, at the longest, 240 after roll out. Not much difference on the distance from the Pro-vs but not as forgiving either. I have a small...

Decent ball with little spin off drives, does well on most

Posted

Pros: Less spin off drives

Cons: Ball skids off on harder suface when hit at lower trajectory

My review is for B330 RX.  I have used B300 RX ball before.   As I remember, the balls went long with medium trajectory, and did everything fairly well.  I loved it.  If I didn't like B6 more, this would be the ball of my choice from Bridgestone.   So, my expectation of the latest B300 RX was high going into review.   The box came with an insert that described the ball as having less spin (achieved by having thinner cover).   It didn't disappoint me.  The ball seems to go straight off tee more than my usual.  I saw less side movement for my ball flights.   Not bad.  It also kept its medium trajectory from its...

A decent premium ball

Posted

Pros: Felt great off of wedges and the putter. Ball felt soft

Cons: A little shorter than my normal ball

The ball I received was the 330RX series. The only stats I have on myself from a recent driver fitting is that I hit the range balls with a ball speed of 128 MPH and a spin rate of about 2400.   Apparently I was the first one to receive these and am still playing them as I have only donated 3 so far. My playing partners thought that I was playing so well with them that I should share the wealth and they questioned whether or not the ball was conforming.   My normal ball is the Srixon Q-star (yellow)   Looking through my numbers, the only number where the Srixon beat out the 330RX was in driving distance - since the average drive was only 3 yards less with the...
