Taylormade Tour Response vs Bridgestone Tour B: Best Golf Balls

Thanks for checking out our comparison of Taylormade Tour Response vs Bridgestone Tour B RXS golf balls.

I’ve been testing golf clubs and equipment since 2015 and am an enthusiastic golfer with a 9.2 7 handicap on my path to a 2 (was a 5.6).

I’ve been using the Taylormade Tour Response and Bridgestone Tour B RXS golf balls for just over a month. I’ve completed eight to ten rounds of play and four to five practice sessions on and near the green.

In conclusion, I find the differences between Tour B and Tour Response to be insignificant. I used the same clubs for all of my shots from the tee to the green and obtained comparable or identical outcomes. Any golfer who is ordinary or slightly above average could play one of them tomorrow without missing a beat.

Tour Response vs Tour B RXS 

With a similar soft feel and tour-level (nearly) performance, Taylormade Tour Response golf balls cost around $10 less per dozen.

These are three pieces but have urethane coverings (exactly as premium balls) (like cheaper balls). These are Hi-Spring core 70 compressions. For a soft feel, 70-compression is required, and the Hi-Spring core is required to make up for the gentle compression core with faster ball speed.

Straight-up premium golf balls, Bridgestone Tour B RXS are made for swings under 105 mph. (slower swinging motions)

The new “Reactive IQ” “smart” cover from Bridgestone responds to the power of impact, whether it is from your driver or your wedge.

In order to increase the spin-off of your wedges and approach shots, it remains on the face longer and rebounds quicker for longer tee shots. Also, it feels fluffy around the green.

It uses “Dual Dimple” technology, which has dimples inside dimples. According to Bridgestone, this increases their efficiency and aerodynamics.

My Experience with Taylormade Tour Response & Bridgestone Tour B RXS golf balls

I spent a lot of time with both balls on and around the practice green as well as on the course. I did good on both of those as well. They respond off irons and with the driver essentially the same. Could maybe pick out differences if I put them on a launch monitor, but I didn’t (at least not yet) (at least not yet).

I could put either ball into play without hesitation and would still be content playing where I do—on a course with soft, receptive, and slow greens.

The Tour B RXS would be my choice if I frequently played a course with moderately quick-to-quick greens. I prefer a softer feel and greater spin when in doubt.


Tour Response balls appear to be more expensive than Bridgestone Tour B RXS balls, however, it’s a bit difficult to tell from the photographs on this page.

They are lighter. The typography and images are more streamlined. The dimples are also less active. (Recall the Tour B RXS’s dimple in a dimple design)

Winner – Taylormade Tour Response


Golf balls made by Tour B RXS have a somewhat softer feel than balls made by Tour Response. Precisely what I would anticipate from a high-end ball.

The Tour Response responds and feels terrific off the clubface, but compared to the Tour B RXS, it falls short.

Bridgestone Tour B RXS was the winner.

Ball Flight

Both balls had the same trajectory for me. At least near enough for me to be unable to distinguish between them.

My standard irons shot is a high draw, and my driver shot is a medium-high moderate draw to push. My driving is too irregular and my iron shots were almost identical to make any firm conclusions.

Result: Push


As far as I could tell, my irons and well-hit strokes were comparable. Nothing caught my attention. A driver is the same. No obvious variations.

Result: Push


The Tour B RXS seemed to linger on the clubface a little bit longer, seemed a little softer, and checked more off the wedge around the green.

Although not quite as good, Tour Response balls played admirably around the greens.

Winner: Tour B RXS

Conclusion of Taylormade Tour Response Golf Balls vs Bridgestone Tour B RXS

Which golf ball would I choose?

A lot of this depends on your preferences, playing abilities, and environment.

For instance, I play 99% of my golf on soft, slow, and receptive greens (as I’ve said a few times previously) and I have a 7 handicap.

I’d be content to play the Tour Reaction every day, therefore.

If I played tougher, quicker greens, I’d move to the Tour B RXS. Without a doubt.

Which ball should you choose? 

Play on quick, difficult greens? Bridgestone Tour B RXS is what I recommend.
Play on greens that are softer and slower? I would choose the Tour Response.
