Very late to the party here....but may just help someone in the future.

I've solely played TM balls since they re-invented themselves. And loved them: TP Red, LDP and onto the latest TP5-X.

......which i hated. Way clicky around the green, off the putter and just too hard for me. Long game and into the wind was 'exceptional' as ever.


So; today was the first game ever with the "New" Bridgestone Tour B-X. Was with my son on a local Par-3 course. So in reality ideal to test it in the areas i felt the TP5-X let me down.

Initial thoughts ? Way, way softer feel and sound around the green and less than full shots. No issues at all off the putter. Stopped and spun a nice amount (Much more than the TM 'X' version for me) - and overall i'm really enthused by this ball. Longest hole is only a 7 iron for me......so nothing i can report on long game, flight apex's, performance in the wind etc. But so far an altogether different proposition to the TP5-X that was a 'rock' to me. And i hate saying that as i'm truly a TM fan-boi regarding their balls deep-down.

Hoping they ™ have a change of direction next year - but for now i've found a ball i can happily play whatever else happens.

Tour B X blows the tp5x out of the water, per se.

Not wrong so far. For long game; and in regard of wind performance too ?

Yep. All of the strengths of the tp5x but none of the weaknesses. Tp5x didnt have much greenside control but was also extremely difficult to judge on short iron approaches. Low spin and difficult to flight down. Id have 3-4 shots a round which would carry 8-12 yards further than expected. Notorious for random flier-like shots from the fairways or on par 3s.

Thanks very much for your thoughts. Hoping to get a few games in over Xmas. Genuinely 'excited'......

If it's anything like as good in the wind / has a lowish flight and apex (I play on the East Coast here in the UK) it should be really good.

I have been playing Srixon xv for a while, it was my choice after I ran out of Nike Rzn Blacks. But I was never totally satisfied with the XVs. Today I bought a dozen of BX and I have played BXS before for a while but it was too spinny on full shots and sucked back too much, distance of the driver was good but always shorter than XV and TPX, especially into the wind. So I did my research and decided to try the BX.

Feel  - I think its 80 compression or 85 not sure, but its perfect off of irons and Driver, BXS is such soft feeling ball, but I think BX is just perfect off the putter, responsive and soft, but never too soft.

Distance - Driver, today I have hit some of the biggest drives especially into the wind, this par 5, 12 th hole in my home course has prevailing head wind, I hit my driver 328 yards off the tips into the wind, and the guy I was playing with saif he never seen anyone drive this far in this hole, and I said me too!, its easily 10 to 15 yards longer into the wind than other softer balls like th BXS or Pro V1. It is little longer than Nike RZN black and that was the longest ball for me off the tee for me.

Spin off irons- plenty spin but nothing like Srixon Z stars or Pro V or even TP5, never spins back too much hope ans stop on full shots

Spin off chipping and pitching- very predictable, chip hop and release of ver predictable distance.

Durability- good but, if hit with new wedge, light scar marks appear, it on par with Pro V

I think this will be my ball going forward, never played with B330 because it fely too hard off the putter, BX is just upgrad in every department, only thing is thay I have gotten my forst hole in one woth B330S last Sep, but BX is such an awesome all around tour performance ball, it will take something special to get it out of my bag.

Looking for Low spinning, piercing traj, perfect approach spin in a ball that feels lively yet soft? BX will not disappoint!

Just my .02 but I've tried and have been testing the whole tour B line and at my slow swingspeed of 90-95 I've noticed that all have pretty similar distances off the tee (even into the wind) but i've noticed huge differences with short irons and wedges.  Especially the X just goes too far off the short irons (10-15 yrd difference) compared to the XS or RXS.  So i decided to go with the lower compression RXS for stopping power on the greens. and I would recommend giving the RXS a shot.

That would probably be really close to 30 USD yup.  

I only picked up a dz as I want to do some ball testing in the spring but I was very tempted to stock up
