Bridgestone's 2016 Tour B330RX and Tour B330RXS golf balls have been specifically engineered to produce longer drives and better spin around the green for players with swing speeds below 105 mph, according to the manufacturer. It employs an amatour core, that Bridgestone says is 28 percent softer than the average firm tour ball core, and a SlipRes cover that leads to increased friction and keeps the ball more stable on the clubface.

"The claims we're making may seem unbelievable, and I wouldn't have believed them myself if I heard them without having witnessed them firsthand in our R&D testing," said Adam Rehberg, Bridgestone Golf, golf ball marketing. "We witnessed significant distance increases over major competitors in robot testing, while providing improved greenside spin. The truth of the matter is these balls perform better than anything currently on the market for swing speeds below 105 mph and golfers will notice immediately when they put them in play."

The RX version is designed for players who swing below 105mph with distance off the tee as the main priority. The RXS is designed for players who swing below 105mph with spin around the green as the main priority.
