You must be lethal on straight puts inside 12 feet !  Great video. 
I was just thinking we were watching a putting machine. Great video and I love the set-up you have there!

Yeah...  12 feet, 3 feet, and 2 inches...  they don't call him Mr. 82 for nothing!  

 

To be fair (to be fair, to be fair...  any Letterkenny fans?)...  I haven't played with him since he got the new putter.  I just like busting his balls.

Got a solid 1.5 hours of short game practice today. It was freezing but I managed.

These were some 30 yard 2 hop checkers down wind! Love that big first hop I get with these on the finesse shots, the a grab on bounce two with very minimal roll out.

IMG_7165.JPG

These were from 40, same thing, a nice big first bounce then stop. I would expect a touch more roll out on an actual green, or perhaps some backspin. These were about 15 feet high 56° into the wind.

IMG_7166.JPG

Here we have some 50 yard shots, same deal, flighted down... took me a while to dial up the 50 yard shot, I ended up switching to the 52° because they started to get caught up in the wind with the 56°, but I could flight them nicely with the 52° as well. Dispersion in the picture is from the 56°, just not where I’d like it, but wind definitely had a factor.

IMG_7167.JPG

I also hit all sorts of touch shots around the green, flops, low crispy ones. I actually backed up a high spinner 20 yard shot. Haven’t had that shot in my bag for a good while, and this is with severely worn out wedges

This is one of many videos coming, when I finish my final review, but see if you can tell the difference in sound that the ball makes upon contact with the putter face.  I hit a Titleist ProV1 first, then the Bridgestone B RXS, then a Srixon Z Star, and then a Titleist AVX.  My apologies for the limited audio quality, as it's just the iphone speaker on the other end of the putting green on a tripod.  I will probably do the test outdoors on a real putting green, and place the camera behind me for better audio quality, and try the same test that way outdoors.

 

OK, timeout.  Except for the first putt, you never looked down the line on the next three... kind of like trying to figure out a David Copperfield illusion 🤔😉.  Nice practice putting green btw.

Yesterday I found a Bridgestone "Extra Soft" in my bag while grabbing a few balls for the round.  After losing an RXS into the lake on #3, I grabbed this one and completed the round with it.  To be totally honest, I did not notice any difference between these two balls (I'd played the RXS for several rounds).  Much like the Maxfli Tour and Tour X testing I did, I'm finding very subtle differences in the higher end balls. Perhaps this is more a reflection of my game or caliber of courses I play, but I'm still not convinced the use of tour level balls is lowering my scores.

Gotta say - I am duly impressed with how well you guys can feel and hear the ball coming off the putter.  Other than range rocks I have a real hard time differentiating between various balls.

I hear ya... must be a 12 handicap thing.

Try it off of a milled putter if you have one. It's a lot easier to feel when you don't have an insert, like in @jlukes video using the ER2

Got through an entire round yesterday with a single Tour BX ball and I'm still impressed with the durability of the cover. From all play I've had with these balls I'd say the cover survives the life of play longer than I can play them before I typically loose them. This ball has performed well overall, it has not "separated" itself away from other premium balls I usually play but it darned sure goes into rotation for me with never a single surprise.

I found out earlier today that I won a box of the Bridgestone Tour B RXS on Twitter from @PGAPappas.
I'm really excited to try these out after all the great reviews here, you all have been thorough and done a fantastic job reviewing, what is to me, one of the more exciting releases this year. Bridgestone did a remarkable job in the MGS ball test and I can't wait to see how they do.

 

Thank you all for putting in the time and dedication to do this review.

Don't forget to post your thoughts in this thread! I really wanted to like the B X but I don't think I have the MPH's for it. It's a whole different beast when you put it in the hands of someone who is like 115mph +

Thank you for the invite to share thoughts on the new Bridgestone's! I would be happy to share my thoughts on them and give an idea on how well they work out for me.

Well, I have to come back and straighten this out.

I was going through my bag because I'm playing tomorrow morning and wanted to make sure I had 2020 Tour B X's in there to keep testing with. I was pulling balls out to inspect the ball I used on Friday and I was shocked when I realized it was the 2018 version 🤦‍♂️. I'm glad they changed the text/graphics on the ball or I wouldn't have confirmed it. So, scratch what I said on Friday about the spin around the green not being different -- it wasn't different because it was the same ball LOL!

So embarrassing. Almost as bad as the guy in the PuttOut review who wondered why he couldn't get the ball to stop in the micro target because he hadn't pushed out the "plug"

 

Enjoying catching up on all the work all you testers are putting in.

Thanks to @yungkory I was able to get my hands on some Tour B X's. After 2 rounds I can tell you it is long!! It doesn't spin as much as V1X but I didn't have any issues predicting what it was going to do. I will try to get some Skytrack #'s this week but initial evaluation is that it is a very good ball.

Great write up, thanks for the feedback.  I am looking at the RXS for 2020.
