I played the RXS for a couple of years and it was fine.  Then 2 years ago or so, started playing the E6 Speed, (which at the rate I was drowning them at the time) I really liked and its now been discontinued, so I am looking to get back to the B series.  I just sent my data to Bridgestone to see what they recommend.  I agree it would be nice to not have to buy a dozen just to try a couple of different balls.  I will admit that overall I have been very pleased with the Bridgestone brand.

E6 speed is quite a lot different than the B series.  Tour B X is probably the closest match.

Bridgestone does their ball releases on 2 year cycles with the tour balls being one year and their other balls the following year. The e6 balls became the e12. The e12 should be around in their current design for the rest of this year and whatever they are replaced with will probably be out around the pga show in January.

I like that concept of dividing up, making a mixed dozen.
 
With the BX flying too far, does it create larger than ideal distance gaps in your shorter clubs, or does it make the distance gaps more consistent between clubs? When I switched from ProV1s to BX, the short iron and wedge shots did fly further than I expected, but the gaps were more consistent, meaning I just had to alter my expectations. It's totally worth doing a gapping session with a reliable launch monitor and your own balls to get consistent gapping numbers.

This is a good way to look at it. Now that I think about it, my main concern came when my 52 was carrying close to a standard PW for me, almost. I thought my short irons were losing spin and encroaching/shortening my gaps into the longer irons.
Looking through ARCCOS and other info, I think you may be right. My gaps are more consistent and each iron has gotten a tad longer. It could be that before the BX My shorter irons were spinning or ballooning slightly, and now I’m carrying properly.
I really want to get on a Trackman just for gapping when COVID has subsided.
Cheers! Be well.

Can’t wait to try the new BX! Courses are open here but I’m recovering from a surgery. Been playing Bridgestone for years gonna be hard to switch. Actually may play Rxs when I return after hearing some of the hype and I expect my swing speeds to be down at 1st
