    I have been trying out both the BX and BXS and both seem noticeably shorter than the 330RX I played last year.

    I still haven't tried these yet, but will most likely pick some up for the weekend. I know I should probably just ignore the marketing talk on these (and any ball, club, shaft, whatever), but have to ask:



    They say the B X is straight, but sacrifices a little distance. Are they saying that because most people need more spin, or is there anything else going on with it that would make it shorter? I'm a high spin player...



    Thanks,

    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.




    I just did the same. If they send me XS I'm going to be PEEVED.

    I’ve never seen anything saying it sacrifices distance. IMO they did a poor job with the packaging as far as providing info. I’ve talked about his in another thread but basically they have the same characteristics as the previous version. B X is lower spin so in theory it should go a bit straighter but no it will not be shorter unless you suffer from excessively low spin. Around the green the spin should be the same as it’s really just the cover at that point which is obviously urethane, plus I’ve heard the spin around the green is better than some other low spin model urethane balls.

    I played the Tour B XS today and it is an excellent ball. Long off the tee and good spin into and around the green. Will play it some more to see if the long drives today were a fluke. I hit to some places I do not normally reach and it happened on 4 different holes.

    I have noticed some increase as well. Played the RX and RXS last year along side chrome soft and they were identical in distance and now the BXS and RX is always past the chrome soft. Not talking anything huge but if either ball out did one another it was always the bstone

    Thanks, pretty much my thinking too. They are marketing the XS as the max distance ball and the X as the most accurate alternative, but I guess marketing the XS as a spinnier ball doesn't sound as ****.



    Looking forward to trying the X soon!

    I am waiting on 2 doz Tour B X to be delivered. I have been playing the AVX all season and like it, but I have always been more of a fan of Bridgestone balls and the idea of a very low spin ball off the driver intrigues me. At $35 per dozen it just makes sense

    Exactly. Their strategy information wise is very odd. It’s like they are afraid to narrow a ball down or something.



    My theory:



    Tour BX: generally known as the firmer ball with less spin but market it as feel + accuracy. They throw feel in there because they don’t want turn someone off to a firmer ball.



    Tour BXS: generally known as the softer spinnier version. They market it as distance + feel. They throw distance in there because they don’t want the spinnier version to seem like it’s shorter.



    Now they aren’t necessarily wrong with saying feel for the X because they did make it feel softer this year, and the XS is not shy of distance but this is really not the most accurate way to describe or market the balls.

    Got a pack of X balls and played nine holes by myself today comparing it shot for shot against a ProV1. Two par three’s, but hit driver on all others even though I normally don’t on three of them. Not one single time did I manage to make perfect contact with both balls with my driver! :-X



    I really didn’t see any notable difference between them on irons or wedges. They feel differently though and I got to say I kind of like the way the X feels. Will be testing more, but at least I’m not at all disappointed with it so far. Gotta go see our pro and have him look at my driver swing though. :-)

    In my quest to replace my Nike Rzn tour blacks, I played the BX along side the Srixon z star xv and found them to be very similar in their feel both in driving and putting.

    Equally straight/ low spinning with the driver.

    However the Srixon is significantly cheaper which gives it the edge for me

    Played the Tour BX in a 4 man scramble last week and it was a very good ball for my game. Low spin off the driver, yet had that nice tight controlled spin off of mid and short irons. Putted much softer than I thought it would and had very good feel. Going to put it back in play again this weekend but really liked the early results.

    The BXS is out of this world good. As long as tp5x off the tee but it is the softest feeling ball off the putter that I have used.

    For the first time I went through lot of effort in picking a golf ball this year....and a lot of time. The TP5 was the winner. Then a couple of weeks ago the BX S was on sale and I grabbed some for half the price of the TM. I am not very price sensitive when it comes to golf, but the price gave me an excuse to really play multiple rounds vs hours of testing ball against ball.

    Now I am thinking that the TP5 and BX S are dual favorites LOL. They fit my game very well! I think I will buy 2 dozen more at these prices as I really do like them. I did play 9 holes with the BX S, TP5, and TP5x all in play for every shot. Distance was so close I just threw that parameter out of the evaluation process. Feel, all good with TP5 the softest, TP5x the firmest, and the BX S in the middle. I could be very happy with all!



    PS: Really not half the price, more like 25% off. My exaggeration :-)

    Let me give my 2 cents on the Tour BX.



    I have played the B330 in the past and liked it. Only minor complaint is that it was a little firm on the greens. The Tour BX fixes that nicely. It has an amazing feel off the putter. It performs very similar to the B330, but with a softer feel. It feels like they took the B330 and put a softer core in it.



    While I still have alot of Chrome Soft, Chrome soft X and Tour preferred X left in my bag, I think the Tour BX has earned a spot in my bag.

    Today, I hit a normal approach with a sand wedge and when I got to the green, my Tour BSX had a little chip missing from the cover. Since it was a lift-clean-place day after much rain, I had just cleaned it and no chip was present. Just one small anecdotal occurrence, and one ball thrown into the woods. Never had that happen with years of Pro V 1s. Back to Titleist!

    I had the same exact experience with the B330. I switched to the TPx and played it for years. I recently bought some BXS and found it too soinny for my liking so I got some BX. It’s everything I liked about the B330 but they made it a little softer. I might have finally found a replacement for the TPx.

    Tiger Woods plays the Bridgestone Tour B XS. Bryson DeChambeau plays the Tour B X. They are supposed to be testing each other's ball for Ryder Cup competition.

    If Tiger wins tomorrow, Bryson will play whatever he is told to play.



    Besides, there is very little between the two. I play the X for exactly those reasons, but do not mess with Tiger’s Mojo, Bry.

    Got a box of B xs limited edition 'tiger' balls and really liked them. Great feel and distance off driver and irons. Couldn't stop em real quick on the greens, but greens were hard so maybe not the ball. Great soft feel off putter.

    Looking forward to playing my home course with them this weekend.



    Edit: played my home course today and won the local comp. Back plates, fast greens, tough pins and 20-25mph cross winds. Bxs was superb. Some of my longest drives in recent memory, good flight that the wind hardly affected, decent spin and great feel and control around the greens. Played same ball for 18 holes and still decent despite hitting some trees. Very impressed, every bit as good as my usual csx gamer.

    Wanted to love the BX but I thought it was a weak offering. Lacking in feel, hard and not responsive. Didn't spin well or check properly on delicate chips. It also was low spin on irons so it didn't sit even when launched. It was OK, but comp is so deep now with srixon and tp5 and Snell and prov1...cant be OK or not fit high speed low caps like others do or your toast

    The three balls I have tested extensively are the B XS, B X, and the 2017 Pro V 1. Here is a quick breakdown:



    Pro V1:

    -Soft feel.

    -Lower, more penetrating flight across all clubs.

    -Great on the greens.



    Tour B XS:

    -Softest of all three.

    -Mid-low flight off of my driver with less side spin. (The slices and hooks with the Pro V are not as far away from the fairway)

    -Longer than the Pro V for me across all clubs

    -Best control around the greens



    Tour B X:

    -Firmest of the three, but softer than B330

    -The ball wants to fly straight. Just as long as the B XS for me.

    -Firmer feel around the greens and off the putter.

    -Good greenside spin. Not as controllable as the Pro V1 or Tour B XS



    I got to a point where I am happy using any of these balls. Which ever is the cheapest at the time I play.



    If I had to pick a favorite, it would be the Tour B XS

    For the higher speed guys who loved the prior b330s but not the b330, the tour B line is flipped. TourB X is much better than prior B330 while the TourB XS is softer and too spinny compared to the b330s.

    So as a long time player of the B330 (2014 and 2016 version) I was really excited to play the Tour B X . To me the X felt like a dead rock compared to the B330. I quoted the above 2 posts because I seem to be in a very small minority of 1 with this view image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />. I wonder if there were quality control issues early on? I guess I should buy another few sleeves and try them out.

    B330 guy for years.



    Put the tour b x and tour b xs on launch monitors today - 8i, 6i, 4i



    Tour b xs was longer with 6i and 4i by 3-5 yards.



    I've hit the tour b x, b xs, and b330 head to head off the tee and they're all about the same distance.



    Will start playing the b xs when my b330 supply is gone.

    Very late to the party here....but may just help someone in the future.



    I've solely played TM balls since they re-invented themselves. And loved them: TP Red, LDP and onto the latest TP5-X.



    ......which i hated. Way clicky around the green, off the putter and just too hard for me. Long game and into the wind was 'exceptional' as ever.





    So; today was the first game ever with the "New" Bridgestone Tour B-X. Was with my son on a local Par-3 course. So in reality ideal to test it in the areas i felt the TP5-X let me down.



    Initial thoughts ? Way, way softer feel and sound around the green and less than full shots. No issues at all off the putter. Stopped and spun a nice amount (Much more than the TM 'X' version for me) - and overall i'm really enthused by this ball. Longest hole is only a 7 iron for me......so nothing i can report on long game, flight apex's, performance in the wind etc. But so far an altogether different proposition to the TP5-X that was a 'rock' to me. And i hate saying that as i'm truly a TM fan-boi regarding their balls deep-down.



    Hoping they (TM) have a change of direction next year - but for now i've found a ball i can happily play whatever else happens.
