I rented an indoor sim today and hit the QST, the RX, and the RXS. I was not happy with the launch angle of the CS and AVX when I last checked in about a week ago. So I went back to comparing both my recent gamers of the last several years.

I hit my 3W off the deck, as I hit the 3W much more consistently than my D. My sample size was about 25 hits each, and the numbers were very close. Here's carry and total rollout for each:

QST     167/ 201
RX        171/ 200
RXS      170/ 203

Further, the average launch angle of both the QST and RX was 11.3°, while the average launch angle of the RXS was 11.9°.

I am tempted to think that this is way too close to call, and the QST, once again, wins by not losing greatly, specially at $15/doz. less than the Bridgestone balls. However, cost is not my primary decision maker in this case.

So here's the thing for my situation. There are 4 driver holes at my club where total distance is predicated upon flying some sort of hill. On these 4 holes, make or break is, as Joe Biden once remarked ;-),  a BFD.

I'll of course be trying all the balls off all the clubs in the next 6 weeks or so. Just wondering if anyone — specially those in a similar position — has any thoughts on the matter.

And, BTW: it appears that the latest Bridgestone RX(S) balls have lost the interior dimple. Are my eyes that bad, or have the dimples gone away?

Check our budget golf. Just got an email from them today. The previous model Bridgestone and the QST are both $25 per dozen now.

I have noticed over the years that in firm playing conditions, which are the norm here, that greenside spin between quality tour style 3 piece balls is marginal. I see the differences more when playing out of the desert area of Phoenix. Playing in Las Vegas last week I felt I could give the edge to the CSX18, but now that I am back home, there is just not a $15 difference in performance between the 2 for the course I play regularly. I do feel the QST and CSX18 mask my bad driver swings better than the Tour B's,  ZStars, or  ProV1s.
