Bridgestone B330RX and B330RXS Balls
TOUR B330-RX Technology
Tour Performance optimized for amateur swing speeds under 105 mph with a preference for maximum TOUR DISTANCE.
The NEW Tour B330-RX offers a reformulated mantle layer and Dual Dimple Technology. The reformulated mantle reduces spin on full shots and promotes a higher launch, resulting in greater accuracy and distance. The Dual Dimple pattern offers superior aerodynamics and enhanced wind performance. The B330-RX continues to feature a soft core design that allows maximum compression for moderate swing speed players.

Dual Dimple Technology
Based on the 2012 Golf Digest Hotlist:
Performance: 4.5 stars
Innovation: 5 stars
Feel: 4.5 stars
Demand: 3 stars
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.
