    First indoor hitting session of the year with TrackMan. Been playing TM TPx for the past couple of years. Bought a dozen BXS’s. Feel was great. Slightly softer than the TPx. MThe ch better that what I remember of past Bridgestone balls.

    Ball speed with the driver was slightly faster with the BXS. Not a huge sample size, but seemed like an extra one or two MPH with the BXS.

    couldn’t get a great feel for spin on half shots. Need to see it on real grass.


    I think this just kicked the TPx out of the bag.

    Played 18 Saturday morning with the BX...I will pretty much echo the popular sentiment here, it played similar to last years ball with more greenside spin and a tad softer off the putter. I was impressed with the improvement in that area without sacrificing in other areas. I was also super impressed with the durability of the cover. For a $45/dz ball, I would like the ball to be playable more than a few holes and this ball looked like it had been hit maybe once or twice when I finished my round Saturday.

    I have played the 19 and 20 XS in successive weeks, distance on both is nothing mind blowing, but the spin on the 20 model is vastly different. I was spinning balls back that I usually dont do. Some were drop and stop like 19 model prov1 Durability on both were outstanding, even on the ones i was spinning back, no scuff marks. I will play alot of both balls this year. Its going to be hard to pass up on a 29.95 ball.

    i used the TP5x last year and when i went to the BXS, it was a world of difference. the TP5x went bye bye.....the TP5 however was very comparable. The BXS is just a great feel.....

    Can anyone comment on the Tour B X from the tee? One of the things I love about the '19 version is how straight it is (I can get wild at times). The lack of side spin is one reason I moved to it over the Z Star, which I played for a long time.

    Anyone notice a much higher ball flight with the BX? My driver is going a little further but the apex height is incredibly high, much higher than the older ball. I play a 8 degree Epic, not sure if it is launching too high or if that is how it should be.

    Although I played the RX, I did notice it was very easy to hit it higher than the previous version. I found it was easy enough to flight down into the wind though. This dimple design does seem to perform real well into wind though and seems to suffer less loss of distance. At least it seemed so to me.

    So far in my experience the '20 BX is about the same off the driver as the '19 BX. Not a lot of side spin, just a nice, high penetrating ball flight. To me, it is basically the same ball as last year with more short irons/wedge spin and a more durable cover. If I was sitting on a stockpile of '19 BX I wouldn't bother switching. And I think that speaks to just how good last years ball was because this is a **** good one as well.

    I was able to get a sleeve of the new BXS at Dick's, they don't display them. But if you pull a sleeve out and ask them to use the SKU scanner, it will pop up as $15.00, also, for the BRX. It's on the website.

    I really liked the BXS, but had to buy a dozen of the new BX just to compare. I hope it gets over 40 degrees F tomorrow to give them a go.

    Great feedback, thanks. I do have the stockpile of the 19's so good to know the differences are minimal.

    There's not such thing as side-spin. Ball only spins on one axis and that is determined by the clubhead.


    Regardless, it is a great ball

    I really have enjoyed using bridgestones over the years. More recently have switched over to prov1's but will def be trying the new released bridgestones.

    I'm excited to try both models. The BX with more wedge spin or just more overall with the BXS is right where I want my ball to be this year.

    I keep getting the XS recommended to me as my ball through the fitting. Had a ton of luck with the 16 RX at a different club I used to play where green side control wasn’t as critical as the club I play now since we moved. But I didn’t really care for the 2018 B RX the same way I did for the 2016.

    A bit spinnier RX sounds like the ticket but the RXS sounds legit if it isn’t giving up distance for moderate swing speeds. Played the XS some last year and just didn’t like it as much as TP5 and sold off the rest I had left. I truly believe there’s a touch of a forgiveness factor with the RX lineup for mishits.

    Not sure how the RXS compares to the two other balls BX and BXS, but from tests ive read, you might as well play the BXS regardless of swing speed......the BXS may be one of the better all around balls on the market

    Balls don't know how you hit them. They can't forgive anything. The ball makers can control launch, spin, and ball speed off the club. And then through aerodynamics adjust peak heights and stability. The only real difference between the balls in the Bridgestone range is that the compression goes X>XS>RX>>RXS and spin off irons and wedges goes XS>X>RX>RXS. For most of us, we won't see appreciable ball speed differences between the X, XS, and RX balls. Once you get up around 120MPH though, you're going to start losing speed in anything else than the X. Unless you really know you need to reduce spin, the XS is probably going to be the ball that fits most people. If you do have to reduce spin the X is probably the choice, though for certain people the RX may be better if you really need to kill spin. I can't imagine the RXS suiting many people who wouldn't be better served playing a Q-Star Tour, TM Tour Response, or Wilson Duo Pro.

    Very nice summary in terms of the difference among the line. I bought a dozen of the new BX and BXS and have only used the BX so far and loved it (same as I loved the 2018-19 version, but slighty longer and more spin with wedges). Will be using the BXS tomorrow to compare.
