The Bridgestone B330 golf ball is one of the most well designed and thought out golf ball I have ever played with. While Bridgestone is a big name to live up to in the golf ball community I think their latest star attraction lives up to all the hype. Dedicated to the innovation of this ball they don’t forget about quality. The Tour B330 line breaks down into a few different subsects: the regular Tour B330 and the B330-RX for golfers with various swing speeds to have a tour ball option.
The most important advancement on the Tour B330 series is the 330 Seamless Cover Technology. designed to reduce drag and hold the ball in the air longer. They updated this formula to make the new models softer and with a slightly different dimple pattern to encourage penetrating ball flight. Of course let’s not forget these are professional grade level golf balls matched for swing speeds over 105 MPH so they are built tough.
Overall these are a great series of golf balls for serious players. We did like the fact that they also come in Optic yellow if you need a little extra help finding your golf ball. The B330’s will definitely give your game the ultimate control from a golf ball. You can find the B330 series and other Bridgestone Golf Balls at GolfClubs.com
With a slogan “question everything” Srixon’s latest golf ball has plenty to live up to. The next stage in their popular STAR (Spin, Trajectory, Acceleration, Responsiveness) line of golf balls continues on from the Z-Star. The new Q-Star golf ball has been upgraded by adding a larger core for better distance and a softer highly resilient thin cover and soft core.
First looking at them they look very similar to the Z-Star. Performing they worked great on drives, flew straight with the occasional slice. As advertised it’s best for golfers who have swing speeds over 80. Definitely added serious distance similar to Bridgestone’s e6. Working with the irons I got great ball flight and it just soared. Working with the short game clubs the ball worked great around the green. Overall it hits straight, long, and with great spin. You can order the Srixon Q-Star Golf Balls at GolfClubs.com
Titleist may have some of the most played golf balls on Tour but what does that mean for the average golfer that isn’t making their living playing golf? Yes, most players have or at one time played with a Titleist golf ball but what makes them so special? Well it all comes down to design, specifically the dimples. That’s what distinguishing the Pro V1 and Pro V1 not only from the competition but each other.
The Pro V1 has a total dimple count of 392 with 5 different types where as the Pro V1x has a total of 332 dimples with 7 different types. Because the Pro V1 golf ball has more dimples it gives it more opportunity to cup wind resistance to increase spin rate, just imagine more dimples more speed. They are both made out of the exact same material so the “feel” is essentially the same on each golf ball. How Titleist explains the difference between the two as the ProV1 has “long distance with consistent ball flight” and the ProV1x has “Low Spin and Increased Velocity for Long, Straight Distance.”
Callaway Tour i(z) This dual core construction golf ball was created to make a difference between driver spins (low) and wedge spin (high). The firm compression of this ball is great for players who have a fast swing speed. It was designed for tour players but can also have the soft feel average golfers want. In testing we agreed with this assessment as long as you have a fast swing speed this ball will definitely improve your game.
