Here is my thoughts from today...

I will start this mini-review with this... One of the things I constantly look for in a ball is greenside spin and how the ball reacts when I am hitting in to the green. I look for as much assistance from the ball as possible with extra spin, as I am not a high spin player with my irons or wedges on approach shots. Off the tee, most balls do similar things for me, as I do play a bit of spin with my driver and play this little-tiny-baby fade off the tee (maybe it's not tiny).

So, with that said, I put the B330-RXS in to play for a few rounds to gauge it to what I normally play (B330-RX or RXS). First thought - This ball had more spin that any other ball I have ever gamed. Hopping and stopping, bringing it back a touch, and just wanted to bite on every green I was hitting. I will not say there was too much spin, as I was able to manipulate my shots to allow for release if needed, but when wanting spin, it was there and LOTS of it.

Off the tee, it did what I wanted it too. Solid feel at impact, and just took off. It did what I was expecting it to do, no out of control side spin or anything like that. The ball just performed off the tee.

What amazed me the most was the "tweener" shots, and being in between a full distance with a wedge. Being able to play the ball in the back of the stance and hit a little knock down with this one was effortless. Hop and stop, every time. One thing I did need to adjust was that I needed to plan accordingly and carry the ball a bit further to the hole, because with this type of shot, it was not going to release out and roll on me. So, carry to the pin, hop, stop. Every time.

Bridgestone took the best line of balls, and made them better. I didnt think it was possible.

I played a round yesterday with the E6 ball for the hell of it. It's a very good ball as well. The new version is a lot softer than last year's model around the greens and putting and I think a single digit handicapper could play this ball with very few complaints as well as those needing help to hit it straight. The only complaint that I have is that I COULDN'T shape my shots when I needed to, I had a handful of approach shots where I needed to shape it around a tree or something from an over the top pull tee shot and the ball just wants to go straight. The main point of the E6 according to Bridgestone is to cut down sidespin and hit straight shots, they are telling the truth. If you are looking to turn a slice into a gentle fade or a hook into a little draw, give the E6 a try. I've been fighting hooks recently and this ball stayed in play for me, a 77 at Cheval which I had never played before, so I think this will be the ball I use when my ball flight is moving too much. It's a confidence builder to swing away and know that the ball is going to help minimize the curve.

Is it possible to get a sleeve of these balls to test out? I've been getting out more more each week so I'm able to dabble a bit ;)

Still can't find a ball worthy of kicking these out of the bag. The B330-RX just provide me with everything I look for in a ball. Had to stock up.
