Soft Durable Ball That is Great Around the Green

Posted

Pros: Durable, Soft, Great Spin, Inspires Confidence.

Cons: Shorter than other top market balls I've previously used.

I've been using this ball for the past 10-15 rounds as I wanted to make sure I did a quality test before providing a review.  I found this ball to be durable but with a soft feel.  As mentioned in the Pros, I found it to be great for my iron game from about 6 iron on up to the 60 degree wedge.  The feel of the ball and the spin around the green made me comfortable in taking high risk shots and I was provided with great results.  I was able to get really good spin feedback even on harder/dry greens and this allowed me to be more aggressive with my play.    I found the workability of the ball to be similar to other similarly priced golf balls and had no...

High Spin, High End Ball

Posted

Pros: Spin On Short Shots & Feel Around The Greens

Cons: Slight Loss Of Distance

I was selected through the Sand Trap to test the new 2014 Bridgestone Golf Balls.  One of the requirements to get a dozen balls was to use the BFit technology on Bridgestone's website.  The BFit paired me with the B330-S.  I have been a purchaser of the B330-RX for the last few years, but was never fitted for it.  The recommended cutoff point for Bridgestone is 105 mph swing speed and mine is slightly less that that.  The B330-S is designed for swing speeds over 105 mph, but since I was fitted with it by the BFit, I gave it a go.   I definitely agree with Bridgestone on the 105 mph plus swing speed for these balls.  If I didn't make a great swing at...

Super spin!

Posted

Pros: Great feel and spin.

Cons: Lost a LITTLE distance w/ driver

As others have said, the ball spins like mad! It feels REALLY soft, even off the putter. I loved the feel off my irons and wedges because I knew I'd get tons of check and only a little roll out with long irons.    I have used the balls for 3 rounds now, and I can definitely say that I lose 5-10 yards with my driver compared to the normal ball I use. The roll out kinda disappears. I have recently been fitted for a new driver that reduced my spin numbers, so the ball is kinda fighting what I'm trying to do with the driver.   They are pretty durable considering how soft they are.   I'm torn on the short game aspect . . I love the way they perform when chipping. At...

A very good spin filled golf ball

Posted

Pros: High spin on chips, pitches and wedges, Great sounding ball, Great overall feel

Cons: Quite high spinning off te driver

  After being chosen to test the brand new Bridgestone B330-s I was very excited to see what the new ball had to offer. i had been using the Callaway Hex Chrome + before this ball and was interested to see how the spin compared. Now lets get to the review.   Off the tee: As I walked tot he first tee I did not really know what to think about this golf ball. i had used it before but was never really a fan of the feel of the ball. I stepped to the first tee and hit the ball right off of the center of the club face and saw my ball sail about 260 (with the ball actually jumping back an inch) and I was very impressed. The sound off of the driver was surprisingly soft and sounded...

Great high-end ball

Posted

Pros: High-spin, durable, confidence-inspiring ball

Cons: A bit shorter

I was one of the lucky few who got to test the B330S through The Sand Trap, and my overall opinion is that this is an excellent ball. If price is no object, you should really try this out - it performs well, it feels good off irons, and it is surprisingly durable.   Before moving on, let me start with a few caveats. The BFit process paired me with the B330S, and I'm sure that the main reason this happened is that I usually play with the ProV1 or ProV1x (because every birthday and Xmas, my family keep buying more of them for me).  I redid my fitting with the automatic system and put a Srixon Soft Feel in as my 'regular ball', and I got paired with the B330 RX (or the e5, or the...

Does what is advertised.

Posted

Pros: Lots of spin and cofidence around the greens, very durable.

Cons: Not for short hitters.

I was just recently given the opportunity to test the Bridgestone B330-S balls, and took 3 of them with me to a local par 3 course 3 times and used them for a 13 hole round.   The performance is exactly as advertised, my feeling is that they were fitted too aggressively for me due to the fact that the current balls I use are a so called "distance" ball. They should change the BFit to include mainly swing speed. I think these balls are fit for someone with a 110 swing speed.   Even with a slow swing speed, these babies really perform on the course. I am even thinking of taking them to the course, tomorrow at Goose Creek. I like the softer feel on the approach shots less than...

Top quality, high spin, premium ball

Posted

Pros: High spin around the greens, extremely soft, consistent, and very durable

Cons: May be too soft off the putter for some, slight distance loss with my 103 mph swing speed

I was fit to the B330 S using Bridgestone's on-line selection guide.  I was a little surprised at the outcome because my 103 mph driver swing speed is just under their recommended 105mph threshold for this ball.  The on-line fitting was more in-depth than simply asking about swing speed though, so obviously some of the other factors tipped me in this direction.   I've been playing the ProV1 almost exclusively for the past 3 years, so all comparisons are based on that.     Specifications:   This is a 4-piece, Urethane covered, premium ball.  Bright white.....noticeably brighter than the ProV1.  Very clean, unobtrusive logo and a somewhat...
