Bridgestone Tour B X vs Tour B XS

zbeard23zbeard23 ClubWRX Posts: 60 ClubWRX
I have tried to read through threads but have not came across any that directly compare these two in a substantial manner. Just trying to see what people think about each and if there is really a difference in distance between the two. Also if anybody sees a straighter ball flight with Tour b X.



Cheers.

    I second this question

    Almost set on the new CSX for this year, but want to comp it to the BX and BXS as one last test

    Oddly enough, I just went through a dozen of both balls testing this exact thing.



    TourBX - Harder ball, but still what I would consider soft compared to the old B330X. Felt low spin off the driver. I hit some absolutely monster drives with this ball, and rarely lost it right or left off the tee except for human error. Iron and wedge spin felt great, had enough for 7 iron's to one hop and stop into some pretty firm greens. Held up great in the wind, both head winds and tail winds. Didn't see any spin up too high, or drop out of the air because a tailwind killed the spin. I've been gaming the RZN Tour Black for the past 2 years, and I'm almost certain when I run out I'm going to switch to this ball. Although I have yet to give the new Chrome Soft X a try. If I was going to compare this to another ball, I think it would be the 2015 ProV1x with better ball flight.



    TourBXS - Felt super soft off the driver. Although I did hit some decent drives with it, it felt like it was spinning way too much, and the flight seemed higher than that of the TourBX. For some reason I just found the fairway more with the TourBX. Again, iron and wedge spin felt great, but softer than the TourBX. I normally play with a 10-20mph wind, and this ball with the extra spin definitely felt like I lost distance. If I was going to compare this to another ball, I'd almost say it felt like a 2016 Bridgestone E6 with a urethane cover.



    And for those who are gonna ask, I don't think either ball compares to a TP5x. TP5x seems much harder than both of these, in my opinion. TP5x also launches way too high for me off the driver for the windy conditions I deal with on a day to day. To this day I have yet to see this ball live up to the hype that people put on it.



    And before anyone says, well Tiger hits the TourBXS and seems to get the right height, or whatever, I can guarantee you he isn't playing the TourBXS you can buy off the shelf (unless Bridgestone comes to this thread and proves me wrong).

    I can't compare the two new Bridgestones, but can compare the Tour B XS to the previous B330S. I bought two dozen of the BXS balls on the 2 for $70 deal and have played several rounds with them. I would say with the new ball the spin is higher, and ball felt softer, and just not as good in the wind The B330S has been my ball for years, best combo for feel/distance/spin for my game,but I'm not sure I like the Tour B XS. Might have to try the Tour BX, or I'm probably moving on to Srixon's full time.

    Thank you. This is exactly what I was looking for. Looking for a ball that keeps my slight fade that tends to get loose a few times per round a little more straight. With also having green side control.

    I started playing the b XS this year after being a prov1x player for the past several years. ~3hcp, with 120ss with the driver for reference. I guess this ball has left a little to be desired as I just bought some tour b x balls to try. I don’t think I got too much spin from the driver compared to the Prov’s, but around the greens, they don’t seem to have the same performance on touch shots. Not bad, but where a Prov would just one hop and stop, these one hop and have a slight trickle to them.



    My biggest concern is that they are 5 yards shorter than the prov’s. I hit an 8-iron 165, but with these, 160 is pretty consistent, and this holds true throughout the bag. I was reading about them, and just realized that these are 75 compression! That just seems really low, and could be a reason for the distance difference. The b x is 85 compression, so hopefully those will be closer to what I am used to. If not, back to the prov1x for me. Does anyone else notice a slight loss in distance with these? Thanks.

    Yes, the Bxs is a little shorter and more side spin for me off driver

    I didn't notice a big difference on short irons or wedges

    The bX is the one for me - best combination and solid spin when and where i need it

    longer than csx off driver - softer off putter

    still comparing them, but edge to BX right now....

    will update as it clarifies

    So I compared these pretty extensively today as I had the course mostly to myself. I also compared the prov1x as well. Surprisingly, there was not much of a difference between the three with the exception of the driver. The XS was slightly behind the other two, which were pretty much neck and neck. With full shots with irons and wedges, all three performed almost identical. Almost no difference in distance or spin. The XS feels a bit softer than the other two though.



    After the round, I went to the chipping green and hit multiple chip/pitch shots from around the green, and I couldn’t tell you which was better. They again all performed nearly identical to one another.



    Since I have two dozen Tour B X yellow balls on the way, I am just going to play with those. After today, I would be comfortable with either of these three balls and feel I’m not losing anything. Hope this helps those that are still confused. Up until today, I was lost myself!

    Have you not tried just the V1 to compare as well? I've been trying to decide which of the 4 to start trying first this year.

    I have tried the V1 in the past, and it just seemed to be too soft and too much spin for me, especially off the driver. It was shorter than the x for me, and I always kept going back to the x.

    I really like the XS. i hit a few really good drives, and feel that i did not spin it too much. although i tend to not spin the ball much so i prefer a higher spinning ball. plus the green side action is always appreciated. i really really liked it.

    Recently played the V1x, TP5X, BXS and BX against my gamer Srixon XV. I'm 115+ driver and aggressive, shallow divot producing swing.



    The V1x is always shortest off the tee with driver, 3w, DI by 5 yards or more but feels most similar to the BXS. Because I'm low spin with driver (~2000rpm) the extra spin of the BXS keeps it line better than my XV without losing more than a yard or two. It also one hops and stops on greens with chips and backs up on pitches. Cover durability was very impressive for urethane. One ball lasted nearly 5 rounds before it made a suicide mission into a pond.



    TP5X was equivalent length to BX, but both shorter than the XV by a yard or so. Very good in the wind off the tee and with irons. One hops and stops on firm greens with pitches and releases on chips which is good on slower greens.



    I'm considering using the BXS for the firmer greens and less windy days with our winter coming down here. The XV is still my best ball, but for a different, softer feel the BXS doesn't penalize me like the others. The Bridgestone were the most consistent producers of ball speed and spin on the GC.

    Put Tour BX in bag a couple weeks ago. Coming from 2017-18 ProV1 I started season playing 2018 CSX. was happy with ball performance but couldn't get past the look and feel of ball. Did not have the premium feel I was used to from Pro V and the callaway emblem took up to much of ball. I love the feel of Tour BX and the look. Performance: ball flight off tee is a very nice launch angle. not as low as pro v, not as high as CSX. Distance is right on par with pro v and csx with less side spin on my poor strikes leaving the ball closer to center and with less distance loss. Very impressed with greenside play from spin into green with irons and on touch shots. putter feel is superb. Feeling very confident with this ball in my bag for 2018!

    How does the softness off the putter compare to the ProV1, ProV1x and previous year’s B330? Always loved the B330 but was too clicky off the putter. Heard the new Tour BX is softer off the putter.

    Hound, keen to find some X in yellow. They selling them in the States, or is this Japan yet again? I still have a TB330 in yellow (down to my last!), but I had to get that shipped in from Aussie.

    I have played 2014 and 2016 B330 for the last few years and love them. Tried some of the new Tour B X and to me they feel like rocks. They are also noticibly lower spin than the already low spin B330. Not a fan. I may need to try the B XS. My son has been playing the B330S for a while but 1 round with the B XS and he was a convert.

    Did they bring the X in yellow to retail, or do I need to order from Bridgestone directly?

    From what I understand you have to order through Bridgestone to get the yellow in the x or XS

    For what it's worth I've played the new B-XS and quite like it compared to the B330S which I didn't like at all (too firm), it's significantly softer feeling as others have described. It's not the longest and not the spinniest but it's a good all rounder. I'll be using the rest of the dozen for practice/holiday rounds but don't think I'd buy them again.

    The Bridgestone BX is like a rock and the BXS just isn’t what it used to be.. disappointing from Bridgestone.. have heard good things about the BRX though

    Just grabbed two dozen BXS and put one in play friday... have to say, I am pretty impressed. I bought them as I was hoping for more feel with players ball type spin and that's exactly what I found it to be. It almost bites on the greens TOO much... had a couple really spin back once they hit the green. Great distance off the driver, too and I was playing my old G25. Looking forward to seeing how this ball plays off the MAX. I have about 3 dozen Z stars I am considering selling in favor of a few more dozen BXS.

  • I can’t compare these to every premium ball out there but I can say that the BXS is longer than the chrome soft and maybe just a touch longer than the z star(usually equal but if one does out do the other it’s always the XS). The XS seems to spin a bit more on wedge and short iron shots but the chrome soft spins a bit more with the mid to long irons. XS seems to spin a bit more overall vs the z star but not much. Anyone saying the XS feels like a rock must be used to playing supersofts. The XS feels softer than the new CS/x and the prov1/x and is at least as soft as the TP5 and z star.

    Direct through Bridgestone which is actually through shopatron. I ordered 2 dozen yellow Bx, but received the Bxs. Contacted Bridgestone and returned them for a refund because Bridgestone could not provide the Bx! They told me that shopatron stores the balls for them and there was no way that Bridgestone could provide me the correct balls. They said I needed to place a new order to get the correct ones. I said, ‘so Bridgestone does not have the ability to correct this mistake in house, and has to rely on someone else to make it right?’ I was told yes, they couldn’t do anything other than the refund. Customer service is severely lacking...they also didn’t refund shipping costs until I called and told them it was ridiculous to expect me to eat shipping costs when I don’t have the product and it was Bridgestones mistake! Needless to say, I didn’t place a new order. Love the ball and may pick them up in a store, but didn’t like doing business online with them.
