If you have ever wondered whether you should play the Bridgestone Tour B series, then you are not alone. This is why Bridgestone Golf has created an easy way to get fitted for the ball that best suits your game. We tried their VFIT Ball Selector tool to give you an idea of how easy it is to get fitted for the golf ball that suits your game.
The Bridgestone VFIT can help you select a ball using three different methods.
VFIT Ball Selector - answer questions selected by Bridgestone relating to the golf ball you are currently playing. You can select from Bridgestone, Titleist, Callaway, Taylormade, Srixon, Wilson, Volvik, Pinnacle, Maxfli, Top-Flite, Slazenger or enter "Other".
I used to use the Callaway Chrome Soft (currently using the Bridgestone Tour B RX) so I decided to test out the VFIT Ball Selector's accuracy. When I selected Callaway Chrome Soft, Bridgestone's VFIT Ball Selector picked the Tour B RXS as the ball I should play. Once you receive a comparable ball, you can then select several other options like Performance Preference, Gender, Age, Driver Distance (in yards), Average Golf Score and your standard Shot Shape.
Performance Preference - Accuracy
Gender - Male
Age - 35-49
Driver Distance - 220-245 yards
Average Score: 94-105
Shot Shape: Slice
Shot Trajectory: Medium
RESULT: e12 Soft
Data Warehouse: Shows percentage of players who play the recommended golf ball. There is also an option to email yourself the stats.
We haven't tried Bridgestone's second option, the VFIT Video. This option allows you to record your swing in slow-motion (as an iPhone user, I can attest to using this method when on the driving range). You upload your swing and get your swing data back with the recommended golf ball you should play.
Lastly, you can opt to use Bridgestone's VFIT Numbers option. If you know your launch conditions, you can enter them using their form and have a recommended ball returned to you in minutes.
