Great combination of spin for short game and less spin off driver and such. Stable in the wind and longer off long irons/hybrids. A very good ball for 90-105mph SS. Ymmv

my experience is its a great ball...i dont think its as soft as others say, but not hard by no means. its a good ball, I dont think it was tons of spin around greens..I play the MTB Black, has all the BRX has, and better spin around green....cheaper too

Is the MTB Black higher launching than the BRX?

Tried the RX for the first time today and was pretty impressed.  Was happy distance wise, checked up well on short wedge shots and felt good off the putter.

I've played two rounds so far and I have to say I'm surprisingly impressed. Really good off the driver, great with the irons but what really impressed me was the spin and feel off the putter.  Iron and wedges were just hit and stop and this was on pretty firm greens.  Played yesterday in very strong wind conditions and it was phenomenal.  Great ball. Glad I tried it out now so I can now take advantage of the "3 get 1" sale coming soon.

I am ready to move to the RX.  Been playing the XS or its earlier versions for awhile but have lost some clubhead speed.  

Played the newest RXS and liked it very much except for an issue I cannot get past.  Three times I have hit long irons with the newest RXS where the ball felt very solid at impact but flew like a flyer, where it ducked a little in flight like a knuckleball and rolled out pretty far.  Two of the 3 shots were on a low tee on a par 3.  Each time was with a different ball.  

 

Has as anyone seen a shot like that with either the RXS or the RX?

I’ve found you can def get the flier or knuckleball flight off the irons with the RX and RXS. I think the lower compression and lower spin are the cause. I tested the ‘20 Tour B line pretty extensively, and the Tour B X performed the best for me even though I don’t swing it over 105.

Played this yesterday and nuke every green, as in going over to the back side. This ball is very long and I hit my longest drive ever with it. But it was a beast holding dry greens. I switched to the Max Fli Tour, and the distance dropped off, but it was holding greens and giving me pars. If it is wet I will play this ball as the distance is real.

I swing it just under 105 and I am a big fan of this ball. I've been going between the TP5x and the BX for a bit and the BX was outperforming the TP5x for me but it felt so firm and I like a softer feeling ball. Gained a good amount of distance switching to the RX. So far, only downside that I've found is that it knuckles sometimes and in windy conditions it can get blown off line a bit if my ball striking is off. It's been chilly and windy so far so I can't wait to see what this ball does when it warms up.

I swing at 110, and I love the RX. It’s more durable than the BX and a lot less spin. I play the MTB black and it doesn’t spin as much as the black. However, thats what I want out of a ball. One hop and stop is the most spin I want, and I even like seeing the ball release a bit. Also, not sure what it is about the RX, but some times I will club down with my irons.  It’s at least 5 yards longer with my irons. It may be closer to 10.

Or maybe use the RX and hit one less club?  You'll get more spin and better accuracy.  Just a thought...
