Been there, done that. I really liked the Snell ball and played it for a while. I just happen to like the 2014 B330-S better

Judging from the 3 word descriptions on the back of the box, "Feel and Accuracy", to me it seems like the Tour BX is like the S. The description of the B XS is "Feel and Distance". Maybe the news balls are different from the past and arent direct comparisons, but to me those descriptions are confusing.

They are already scarce on ebay seems like the guy who was selling the 6 Dozen packs is out of them.....

I'd also love to know if anyone did a side by side of the Tour B XS & 2014 S.....

I played the new B tour XS this past weekend but it was hard to tell because it was 49 outside and the ball wasn't carrying that far but it felt pretty good.
I'm going to Florida in few weeks so I can give a better review when I get back.
from my initial thoughts I would say it's pretty similar to the previous model but it might feel a bit softer.

Just tried the new b xs . Only hit pitches chips and putts with it but very impressed, perfect feel for me , spins a lot . Actually prefer this to the tp5 . The pro v1x is my normal ball but have been dabbling with the tp5 lately and I like it , but early impressions are that this ball is even better

Will report more when I’ve played long shots

Played 8 holes today with the new XS

As long off the tee as the tp5 and pro v1x with a similar ballflight to the tp5

Feels awesome

Spins a bunch inside 100 yards

Feels great off the putter

New ball for 2018 for me without a doubt
