Bridgestone 330 RX sans $$$?

03SVTCobra03SVTCobra BatmanMembers Posts: 286
Been playing the 330 RX for about 6 months and love them, however a sick pup is leaving me looking for places to pinch pennies for a few months. Looking for similar performance to the 330 RX for about half the price. Tempted to try the Q-star... Let me know what's out there. The 330Rx has been the best combination of tee control and distance paired with a hop and stop on the green that I've found thus far.

    Q Star ~ $25

    E5 ~ $27

    Chrome ~ $36

    B330 series ~$45



    For the low price of $25, the Q Star is a great ball.

    There are also the TaylorMade Red/Black, which I think are slightly better than the E5. Can be found for cheaper than they are listed.

    I've read a lot about both of these balls. I would assume the 330 RX is more in line with the Black?

    I think you would be closer with the Red. I hear the Black is very high compression.

    Q star is a great ball and another one to look at would be the gamer v2. Hard to beat the price on the gamers!

    If you must buy new, Cally HX Diablo Tour or Gamer V2. Both are legit 3 piece balls with great performance. But seriously, just order whatever you want from lostgolfballs. Get 4As and you'll save the money and sacrifice nothing.

    GPPGolf still has the Hex Chrome at a good discount (around the price of the E5, Q Star, etc.). Shipping costs adds up, but can be spread out over several dozen balls. I think the Hex Chrome is one of the best 2012 offerings.

    I noticed you're in the DFW area, the Golf Galaxy off of I-35 in Lewisville had the 2011 B330 RX for $27-28 per dz, my local Dick's still had some but for $33 dz.

    2011 RX's at Golfsmith (in store) yesterday for $19.99. I know they had lots of yellow. Not sure about white. End cap display -- looks like they want to blow them out.



    The Dual Dimple Technology change for 2012 will have the 2011's selling cheap until they are gone. Likely good deals soon on eBay too for the 2011's.

    Thanks Dien and Allegro work in Dallas next to a GS and live in coppell near the GG. Any idea how late the GG is open I work at Geico and have been staying at the office pretty late to work through these hail claims from last week.

    Better stock up on the old one fast if you can find them at $20.00 a dozen, My GS have been out of the closeout one's for Months.
