    Introducing the Tour B RX from Bridgestone golf. This new golf ball has a low 66 compression rating and 338 Dual Dimple pattern with a softer urethane cover. This tour quality ball is a very good fit for golfers looking for Tour feel performance, and will be a better match for a golfer having a somewhat slower golf swing.

    The Bridgestone Tour B RX Golf Ball retails for $44.99 a dozen (MSRP) and it’s built and designed to provide improved distance and accuracy, thus giving you the upper hand over the competition. Accuracy is everything you need in order to find the fairway and distance will help you outperform the competition; these are the two basic “philosophical” concepts behind the creation of the Bridgestone Tour B RX. The improved distance is due to increased speed ball, which results from the Bridgestone Tour B RX’s proprietary core composition, and also thanks to its excellent aerodynamics. The gradation core construction of the Tour B RX is patented by Bridgestone and results in lower side spin, hence great accuracy, which is a big confidence booster on the turf, regardless of one’s skill level. The mantle layer in the Tour B RX is specially constructed using a new chemical formulation, also the cover is firmer, which results in lower spin and greater repulsion, and that makes the ball excellent in terms of distance, bot with the long irons and with the driver.

    Being aimed at low-mid handicap players accustomed with premium balls, the Bridgestone Tour B RX Golf Ball is focused on having less club on the approach shot, as it allows you to place it closer to the hole in the first place, due to its unprecedented accuracy and control. Unlike its siblings in the Tour B line, the Bridgestone Tour B RX features a simple 338-dimple pattern, yet the design of the dual-dimples was modified (the curves were softened basically) to improve distance via a more penetrating flight. To get you an idea about what’s up with this baby, in terms of shorter green shots, the Tour B RX has the lowest spin rate compared to the Tour B X, XS and the RXS, so keep that in mind when shopping for golf balls. Bottom line, each of the “four musketeers” in the Tour B line was aimed at replacing the company’s premium ‘330 family and each model has been built and designed to ideally suit a specific player. The Tour B RX is made for golfers looking to improve their distance and accuracy, and who regard the Tour B X to be too firm for their liking. The Bridgestone Tour B RX Golf Ball was engineered for slower clubhead speeds, i.e. it gives you more performance due to its softer urethane covers (compared to the X ball).
