    The Tour Series. These are the top-line Bridgestone golf balls, and there are many of them to pick from as you prepare to make your first purchase. One of the popular models in this part of the line include the Tour B X. If you are an accomplished player with an average score somewhere in the 70s or low 80s, you will likely want to pick out a ball from the Tour Series. These golf balls each have their own individual traits, but generally they are going to offer a nice combination of distance, spin, and feel. Of course, as you would expect from a premium line, these carry a price tag which is comparable to the other top golf balls on the market today.

    The Tour B X model is designed for a golfer with a low-handicap, but is still looking for and needing a long distance advantage, but not at the cost of low accuracy. The distance advantage comes with a firm feel at impact. The tour B X has a mid compression of 85.

    The Bridgestone Tour B X Golf Ball retails for $44.99 a dozen (MSRP) and it is built and designed for improved control and better accuracy compared to the previous generation, both features aimed at giving you the upper hand on the golf course. Also, the company claims that their latest Bridgestone Tour B X Golf Ball gives them a big advantage over their competitors, due to their latest technologies incorporated into its built. The Tour B X boasts Bridgestone’s proprietary SlipRes technology, which makes you feel you’re in control of the ball’s trajectory on every shot, and you also feel more birdies. The enhanced feel and control of the Bridgestone Tour BX Golf Ball is due to a state-of-the-art cover, which is softer than in previous generations as a result of the aforementioned SlipRes technology. The Bridgestone Tour B X Golf Ball also comes with a gradation core built, which promotes lower side-spin, hence the ball’s pin-point accuracy.

    The company’s Tour B line of golf balls offers more options than any other major company, four options respectively, including the Tour B X, and all make for premium pieces of golf gear, i.e. multi-layer urethane covered balls. As per the company’s own words, the Bridgestone Tour B X Golf Ball is specially built and designed for low handicap players, and it’s the end result of Bridgestone’s research into more than three million average golfers via online ball fittings. The Bridgestone Tour B X Golf Ball offers solid control over spin and trajectory if hit solidly on the face, hence it works well for better players. The Tour B X comes with Bridegstone’s proven and patented 330-dimple pattern, but due to technological improvements in the manufacturing process, the dual-dimple is now present in all 330 dimples. In this particular dual-dimple design, initial launch and spin are improved by the outer edge, while the inner shaping promotes more roll on tee shots via a shallower landing angle. The tech-improvement in the dual-dimple technology also improves aerodynamics dramatically, hence enhancing distance in the process.
