Applying various estimators on well-defined cluster samples is a mandatory step in characterising their respective systematics. Our main goal is to compare the results of three dynamical mass estimators to the X-ray hydrostatic values. Here we focus on massive galaxy clusters at intermediate redshifts z∼0.3. We estimated dynamical masses with the virial theorem, the Jeans equation, and the caustic method using wide-field VIMOS spectroscopy; the hydrostatic masses were obtained previously from XMM-Newton observations.We investigated the role of colour selection and the impact of substructures on the dynamical estimators. Description: Photometric and spectroscopic redshifts of the cluster members for RXCJ0014.3-3023, RXCJ0225.9-4154, RXCJ0516.6-5430, RXCJ0528.9-3927, RXCJ0658.5-5556, RXCJ1131.9-1955, RXCJ1206.2-0848, RXCJ1347.5-114, RXCJ2011.3-5725, and RXCJ2308.3-2011. When a spectroscopic redshift is available, the photometric value is the same. In addition, we provide a quality flag for the spectroscopic redshift (except for redshifts taken from the literature) and an uncertainty on the photometric estimate. We also provide a red-sequence membership flag. Spectroscopic redshifts have a typical uncertainty of 250-300km/s. File Summary:
