BALLZ!!!!
« on: September 25, 2018, 08:57:49 PM »
bridgestone b330
bridgestone  tour b X
titlesit  pro V
prgr rs spin
tourtsage x01z
prgr egg

that's pretty much what I  limit my  balls  to . I  wud like to try the grapheme ball by , whoever  makes it , if I can find one this weekend ill throw that in.

but I got to play a no holds barred game on sunday where I hit as may as  like, so  I did . hit  gazoogles of them.
one of the best tests for these were on the par3s about 175  yards where I hit the 6 iron.
al these are great to hit but even humble I found a few sublte differences.

the hardest compound was the tourstage x01z  then the titlesit.
I kinda like that feel, bit like a kyoei forged iron vs EPON.
the softest was the prgr egg  and the bridgestone b330
the prgr rs spin was a JOY to hit, I prob gravitated to that more than the others.  prob bec its brand new and I wanted to try yokohama vs bridgestone, the RS just  a bit firmer IMO  than the bridestones.

the egg was the longest I think  by enough not to have to muscle up at the end of the irons spectrum.
cud ease into that ball a bit better nad it feels insanely sweet
the new BSball with tis funky dimple pattern tho is addictive. the looks are so differernt
durability isn't as good as the old toursatge x01z tho it got a bit  bitten with some wedges.
from a  driver I preferd the  new BS X ball. I just like the way it looks more than anything I think and it feels unreal  from a nice beam 435.

putting I LOVE the tourstage bec its harder and u know exactly where u hit the ball.
egg was a bit soft for my taste and the prgr rs was  right there. BS tour X was sot as well.



titlesit was as always,a  titlesit, I didnt notice  a damn thing, and you know what ?

that's just fine by me too.

honestly I cant really choose from these .
they are all so good.
 but this is Sparta and 1 must choose!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

phoaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrr.

ok.


new BS tour X simply bec its new and I don't like gold writing o nthe prgr ball.

in wind I don't think il lever  deviate from the  x01z tho, its simply sensational.

I have played 1 round with the Bridgestone Tour B RXS. Feel is great. For some reason I found that they launch high? Not sure it makes sense. Could have been me on that particular day but the flight looked different than usual. Not sure if I like it or not. They seemed to fly a long way with the irons. Driver on the other hand seemed to be shorter though. Green side was decent but I was expecting more bite. I have read now afterwards that the x and xs models spin more green side. Would love to test the XS but not sure I would benefit from them with my SS. All in all a good ball but not my favorite for now.

When I use the ball selector tool,  it tells me I should use the Tour B X     

https://www.bridgestonegolf.com/en-us/find-my-ball/ball-selector-tool#/

what's interesting is that the input you provide besides gender and age are average score and what you prefer in a ball: feel, accuracy or distance.   That's it!

51y.o,  Male, Avg Score 78, "Accuracy" gave me Tour B X 
When I changed the preference to feel or distance it gave me the Tour B XS. 

Playing the XS now and I like it.  I guess I will give it a go with the X

Have not tried the past 3 seasons balls from Bridgestone but when I was playing them, I played the b330s although my ss is not past 100.  Was a very good ball.

I have some Volvik Vivid to test against my gamer Srixon Soft Feel.
Used a Wilson DX2 soft 2018 on an indoor LM today and jeez was it a low spin but soft ball. Probably get a sleeve of these too 😊

I'm gonna pick the PRGR ball.

As usual, disco stu is right on point, they're all so good...the AVX is the best ball I've played but broke open a box of 2017 zstars, man, fantastic...every time I play the b330s I wonder why I don't just play it exclusively, great allrounder...

Ian, how can u stand to play that surilyn crap?  No way to control spin with it...just bump and run?

Tried the tour b x on Saturday...  driver and irons felt okay but did not like the feel off the putter.  Tour b xs is my choice.  Srixon Z Stars are good too.   These are my two favorites.

had the tour b  v srixon vs tourstage this weekend.
went on a birdie bogie shoot  in   the rain, greens were VERY  receptive !!!
 front nine 4 birds 3 bogies .ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yo know what , there is a subelt difference.
I really liked the  srixon , played that almost the whole back nine.
its, I think.... the most like the titleist. I dodnt really notice a thing about it that was a stand out, it just felt great , looked great, spun nicely.  I mean yea.
the only other one im keen on AND am  getting this weekend is the callaway  graphene.

but as of this weekend my choice is.......

tour b X   BS
x-01z  TS
srixon and prgr  rs  spin.

Nob-san, did you ever play the Tour B RXS? If yes would you be able to compare to the XS?
