I hate the naming they have used for their top balls now. BRX, BXS, BMX? I have no idea how you're meant to remember which one is which. You could try and order some golf balls and end up with one of these.
It’s madness. I think Rick Shiels actually mentions that this naming approach could be a reason why Bridgestone isn’t as successful as other brands who give their balls proper names (ooh er :eek:).

I just go by the box colour. Blue, red, black or green. Annoyingly apparently the B XS were only released in yellow in Japan. I guess those who will put them in play regularly won’t be the type of player who generally needs all the help they can get finding their ball.

Cheeky Callaway Razr Black 10.5 driver! Bargain at £35 used. Used on the range before purchasing and the forgiveness is exactly what I need! In great nick too!

Thanks both! Hit maybe 50/60 balls on the range and its a massive upgrade on my very old Wilson driver! Great to hear others think the same thing, cant wait to pull it out of the bag later today!
First time out last night - the driver is literally the answer to all my problems, so much control. In love.

A couple of new Vokey SM8 wedges in gunmetal grey (52F & 58K). Been looking to replace my 4 year old Callaway wedges for a while, consideration was RTX4 (the boy plays these, and very well) or Vokey. Went to AG a few times, kept trying them out on the putting green, didn't hole one single shot with the RTX, but holed 4 or 5 with the Vokey's every time I tried them. The boy swears they do not have a funnel towards the hole in the floor at AG :D, so Vokey's it was. Have to wait for the 58 though as the K grind is not standard stock. The 52 worked great in back garden pitching last night, will take it out for real tonight.
