Tech Talk: As of this year, all four models use a dual-dimple design aimed at reducing drag at launch (for more speed) and increasing lift later in flight (for longer carry). The B330 and B330-S use a softer, thinner urethane cover to improve feel and distance; the RX models feature a softer ionomer blend in the mantle layer designed to reduce sidespin.
Verdict: Bridgestone still makes the best case for using non-tour-speed balls (not that its elite balls are slouches, though). Still, even our fastest swingers liked the feel of the RXS best.
TOUR B330 Technology
Tour Performance optimized for pro level swing speeds over 105 mph with a preference for maximum TOUR DISTANCE.
The NEW Tour B330 features a larger core, softer cover and Bridgestone’s proprietary Dual Dimple Technology. The new Dual Dimple offers superior aerodynamics and enhanced wind performance while the larger core produces faster ball speed for longer distance. The Urethane cover, now 6% softer than the previous model, also offers enhanced greenside spin control.
