Bridgestone B330RX and B330RXS Balls

Published

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.

2012 Golf Digest Hot List Gold Medal Winner


Features

-The RX is designed for players who prefer maximum Tour distance & accuracy.
-Soft gradational compression core for longer and straighter distance.
-Reengineered mantle for reduced spin and greater accuracy.
-Tour proven Urethane cover for excellent greenside control
-330 dual dimple technology for a consistent flight

Optics

-Also available in Optic Yellow for enhanced visibility

Dual Dimple Technology

Based on the 2012 Golf Digest Hotlist:

Price: $43/dozen

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.

    I normally play Pro V1x balls. My 3 wood swing speed can reach 115 mph and my driver well over that. I found a new B330-RX ball and played 2 rounds with it. I am impressed. On approach shots, the ball backs up to it’s pitch mark, which is exactly what I want. My Pro V1s were spinning back 30 feet sometimes. Sidespin off the tee is much less with the B330-RX. The Pro V1x is longer off my driver, but not so with my 3 wood. I’ve hit multiple tee shots 290 to 300 with my 3 wood and the B330-RX. It also feels very soft around the greens and runs out like a Pro V1x on chips for me. I’m seriously considering using a B330-RX at the next NGA event I play.

    The RXS ball plays very similarily to the Srixon Z star except spin on shots played around the green. The RXS has less than a Z star, but I rarely need that much spin honestly. The RXS is the softest feeling “hard” ball I have ever played – very similar to the old balatas.

    Personally, I was very disappointed in the B330-RSX’s spin on the greens. I play a course that has greens called tift-angel or something like that, and they simply did not hold the greens as well as the Titleist Pro-series, the Taylor Pentas, or the old Callaway Tour-56 balls that I still carry and play. Even the Top Flite Gamer holds these greens better than the B330-RSX. Why should I pay a premium price for these when a really inexpensive ball such as the Gamer performs better?

Spotted: New Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft

Published

on

The official Tour launch of the Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft is this week at the 2018 Forth Worth Invitational at Colonial, and we were able to snap a few photos on the range. MSI stands for millions of pounds per square inch, and basically, it refers to how stiff the fiber is — the higher the number, the greater stiffness it has.

Headed to retail later this summer, according to Aldila, the lower-launching, lower-spinning Rogue Silver 130 MSI is the successor to the Rogue Silver 125 MSI.

Per the company, the new Rogue Silver 130 MSI will feature the same tapered butt-counter-balanced design as the 125. The stronger 130 MSI carbon fiber produces slightly lower torque, however, and is the strongest material in a Rogue shaft to date.

Several Tour pros have already made the switch to the new shaft:

  • Jimmy Walker put the 70 TX in his driver for the first time at The Players. He had been gaming the 80 TX in his fairway wood since the Masters.
  • Kevin Chappell has been playing the 80 TX in both his 3 and 5-woods.
  • Martin Flores has put the 70 TX in his driver
  • Chez Reavie put the 60 TX in his driver at the Masters.

We’ll bring you more details as they become available closer to launch. Click here to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the new shaft in our forums.
