Had to comment on this subject. Never broken 80, have always swung too hard, partially because I was trying to achieve the high swing speed that I knew th PV1x required. This resulted in bad things, as you probably know. Finally admitted that I was not a pro, went to the pro shop to buy a lower compression ball and was recommended to try this one. I only had time to play nine, but I shot a 39. Was dropping long putts and the ones I missed were tap ins. Did not lose any balls, which is not my normal M.O. Felt like I could swing easier knowing the ball didn't require a smashing swing speed, and that improved my long game. All around, I am a convert, but I am only sharing these comments here. Don't tell my buddies!

Ok been sampling balls again this time for the perfect combination of distance and spin. Played the NXT Tour for a while sense i really have been able to put some spin on the ball now and really gain control over it. Was givin a sleeve of thies to try out. Started at the chipping green and had a few varietys of shot with them, flop, bump and run, cip, knock down, ect. And found they had the perfect hight and spin that i wanted and needed. The course i work on, Cedarcrest Golf Course, Has decent size greens but narrow fairways lined with trees and or water and the greens are whicked at times so holding the greens here are important. Shot my lowest score with thies after we set the course up for our local County Am. Thank you bridgestone for makeing a ball perfect for my game
This is a fantastic ball, long, soft, spinny and consistant. Less spin off the longer clubs than ProV1 but better feel around the greens and on short approaches.

I have been using the RX and bought a couple of dozen when they were selling cheap when a mate gave me a sleave of the new RXS and what a ball. The best feeling ball since the Rextar 90. Long off the tee checks up well on hard greens, even with a half shot and if you want lots of gizz with a wedge they do that as well and so soft off the putter. The only problem is what do I do with 2 dozen RX cause I'm not going back.
I have been looking forward to this ball to arriving in Australia for some time. Played my first game with the RXS yesterday and had 74 off 9 handicap, although shorter course than my usual you still have to get it in the hole and that's where this ball has a big advantage over the field. Putting feel in particular is the best I have tried and I was able to control the distance giving me the confidence to go for more puts. Distance seems similar to most quality balls too which is a plus for a ball with this much feel.

I TOOK YOUR BALL CHALLENGE LAST WEEKEND AT A DEMO DAY HERE IN TOWN. I HAVE PLAYED THE PROV1 & THE PROV1X FOR A LONG TIME, YOU FITTED ME INTO THE NEW B330RXS. I PLAYED MY FIRST ROUND WITH THE NEW BALL AND I SHOT A 71, YOUR BALL FITS MY SWING SPEED AND ITS TRUE YOUR BALL GAVE ME ALOT MORE DISTANCE AND ACCUARCY. GREAT BALL FOR SWING SPEEDS UNDER 105, GIVE IT A TRY.

The B330-RXS has been the best Bridgestone ball I have played since the 3 piece B330-S was discontinued. Firmer and longer off the driver the the regular RX. Iron play will give you great confidence and the ball will check and hold the greens. Short irons and wedges is where this ball shines. Full wedges will spin back a few feet but nothing excessive. Full shots from the rough will just stay where they land. Half wedges is where the RXS out does the RX. One hop and check!! Very predictable. Ohh did I mention that the ball is butter soft off the putter and rolls very true. Bridgestone, please dont every stop making this ball!! This RXS is now worthy of the "TOUR" label.

This ball has it all, it has distance and spin you just have to hit it. If you are in between swing speeds this is the ball for you ( 90 to 110) . It is a lot softer than the e5 but a lot more performance. to me it is worth the extra money, one ball last the whole round and more, i have not damaged one yet, 2 rounds with the same ball. Try this ball, and you will never go back.

I have played Pro V1s since they came out and always loved them. However, this past week I lost one and found a RXS ball and figured I would just hit that instead of going back to the cart for a ProV1. I hit it once,twice and finished the back 9 with it. I couldn't believe the distance I gained! Recently returned from the golf shop with a dozen in my bag. Can't wait to hit them tomorrow!
