Amon, Los Angeles, CA Bridgestone Golf Fan Mail. I was fortunate to receive a trial set of the Bridgestone B330-S balls from The Hackers Paradise & Bridgestone for testing. I have played some of the best golf I never thought I was capable of with the combination of this ball and my clubs. My best shot came on a par 5 575 yard hole where I hit a 362 yard drive. Carried maybe 346 and rolled out the rest of the way. Then on another par 3, I hit a solid drive on the green and saw the ball roll back better than I had ever thought was capable of. Amazing Ball!

First Tour Ball Series Optimized For Amateurs Unveils New Designs for Superior Performance

B330-RX Family's New Cover and Mantle Lead to Longer Distance and Greater Accuracy

COVINGTON, GA — Bridgestone Golf, the #1 Ball-Fitter in Golf, unveiled today its new TOUR B330-RX line of balls. Bridgestone is noted for being the first manufacturer to deliver true TOUR performance in a ball designed for amateur swing speeds less than 105 miles per hour. The popular 3-piece B330-RX balls now feature a newly patented mantle layer and proprietary Dual Dimple Technology for longer distance, better accuracy and optimized greenside performance. The new balls will be available at retailers nationwide March 2012.

The concept for the original B330-RX and B330-RXS (tour performance for moderate swing speeds) was a result of Bridgestone's industry-leading ball-fitting service. Using data from real amateur swings, Bridgestone identified that nearly 75% of golfers have swing speeds that prevent them from properly compressing the traditionally firmer TOUR ball cores. By designing a softer core Urethane cover ball, Bridgestone changed that, providing moderate swing speed players the compression ability they needed with the greenside performance they desired.

Having now fit over 150,000 amateur golfers worldwide, Bridgestone has access to more amateur golf swing data than ever before. With that knowledge, Bridgestone's R&D team identified opportunities to enhance the performance of both the B330-RX and B330-RXS through changes to the mantle layer and cover in 2012.

One of the most significant changes is the newly formulated mantle layer material. The reformulated blend of mantle material is designed to further reduce sidespin and backspin on longer golf shots. The resulting pinpoint accuracy contributes to better distance performance from the tee and precision approach shots that lead to shorter birdie putts.

The new B330-RX and B330-RXS models also feature redesigned covers. Bridgestone's proprietary Dual Dimple Technology delivers an aerodynamic boost with a visually noticeable difference. The smaller inner dimples of the cover increase thrust power at launch for greater distance while the larger outer dimples promote a shallow angle of descent for increased roll out upon landing. These improvements, at takeoff and landing, result in greater overall distance performance and more consistency in the wind.

"The RX series was the first of its kind and it created a brand new category in golf balls," said Brandon Sowell, Director of Marketing - Bridgestone Golf, Inc. "For 2012, using our unparalleled materials science and aerodynamics expertise, we took two already incredible golf balls and made them longer and more accurate, while maintaining the greenside spin and feel golfers love. Our patented technology is unmatched, and with the wealth of amateur data we have on the performance of our golf balls versus those of our competitors, we can unabashedly say we have the best Tour performance balls for moderate swing speed amateurs, bar none."

The new B330-RX balls feature a street price of $44.99 per dozen (MSRP $58.00 per dozen) and will be available March 2012 at golf courses, golf specialty stores and sporting goods retailers nationwide. In addition to traditional white, the B330-RX will also be available in Optic Yellow. A limited edition 2-sleeve pack (1 B330-RX sleeve, 1 B330-RXS sleeve) will be available for golfers wanting to try each of the new models. The trial pack will be available at retail in March 2012 at a street price of $19.99.
