    Got a set coming with Project X PXI 6.0 shaft. Thanks Jaywh2! I have gone through all the threads on these irons on numerous forums but haven't got the chance to ever hit them. Really looking forward to getting them!

    I hit the DPC's. They are an interesting iron. The length of the blade is longer than i expected. I would say they are more forgiving than i expected but i didn't love the size of the head. I much preferred the cb's. I do kind of like the stiffer project x shafts though. A little more carry than my s3's.

    Love these irons.... got 5.5's before I realized the shafts are weaker than the standard project x. Gotta re-shaft or sell 'em.

    The size is a bit bigger than what I was used to as well. I ended up replacing the PW because of it. But they just flat out perform better than almost any other irons I've hit. <br />
    <br />
    If you want to see what they look like in black oxide, I had them done. It helps make the head look smaller as well as just being awesome looking. Here's the link to that thread with all the pics:<br />

    It'll take something special to knock them out of my bag. I pretty much hit every iron on the market in trying to find the right ones and the DPC is where it's at for me. Great overall club.

    I too wish Bridgestone would make some J40 DPC gap and sand wedges. I am currently playing a 55 degree Snake Eyes forged wedge which has a head shape that matches the DPC fairly well. I like a large faced wedge. It's not as soft as the DPCs. So I am still on the hunt.<br />
    <br />
    The Adams XTD forged and Mizuno JPX wedges look good on paper but I have yet to see any IRL.<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    Never did find an Adams XTD forged wedge IRL. The Mizuno JPX looked like a balloon on a stick, did not feel that great either. The Cobra Tour Trusty felt great and I picked up gap wedge here in the BST. It fits in nicely with the DPCs and is very soft (and bendable).

    Going back and forth between G15 and JPX-825 irons for the past two seasons with streaks of brilliant iron play between long stretches of mediocrity. But lately been playing JPX-800 Pro w/ steelfiber shafts, my third string irons, and iron play has been way more consistent. I love the forged feel, and the distance control with these shafts has been great. Only problem is lack of forgiveness on strikes toward the toe. <br />
    <br />
    Ordered the J40 DPC w/ steelfiber shafts; I think will be the ultimate answer for me.<br />
    <br />
    Played 6 rounds last week in So Carolina with the new J40 DPC/Steelfibers. Good opportunity to get used to them. Took 3 rounds to start to hit them more consistently. Adapting to the low offset took a bit of tweaking -- stronger grip. Definitely started to hit some solid approach shots but based on the limited experience forgiveness overall similar to the JPX 800 pro's. Using a SM4 gap wedge (50*).

    Just wanted to confirm that the PX 6 Flighted is similar in flex to other stiff iron shafts have played. I was concerned that it would play stiffer to flex like the regular PX but no issues so far.<br />
    FYI - I hit my seven about 165-170 and a 10.8 handicap. If you are on the fence about these irons because of the shafts, jump in asap. Loved my CB3 irons and A12 Pros [ KBS Tour 90 and KBS Tour] but these are so much better and fit my swing perfectly.

    I love the looks of these irons. The sole is the perfect width and the length from heel to toe makes them super forgiving.

    Been playing these irons for a couple weeks now. They have officially kicked my i20s out of my bag and I will be selling those soon. I'm putting my recoil prototypes in them now and they'll be ready to play by Thursday. Cant wait! Should be a great combo.

    Just ordered J40's 5-PW. They come stock w/ PX 5.5 Flighted. I remember them feeling a little harsh last time I played a round w/ those shafts, but its been a few years ago. Ordered a set of KBS Tour-V's to swap out if I don't care for the PX. Any thoughts on how that combo would play vs the PX shafts that come stock?

    I have a set of j40 CBs with KBS Tour stiff shafts (I don't like PX at all) and they are incredible with this clubhead. They feel great, go straight and long and are incredibly forgiving. Not much more to ask for.

    I switched the PX 6.0 flighted to Matrix proto shafts. They are progressively longer per club vs the PX. Ballflight is killer. And all my shoulder and elbow pain is gone (I think it is. Played 4 straight days with them and normally I'd be in serious pain). Great clubs. I don't see the new ones kicking these out of the bag.

    Just played first round w/ PX 5.5 Flighted. Great round. Not harsh in the least. I have KBS Tour-Vs that came in today as well, but I'm not sure I'll switch yet. Actually, I hit the 5.5's kind of high. Would the V's help keep the ball down a little?

    How do you like the steelfiber in these? I have pxi 5.5 but thinking of going to 95 reg steel fibers. Let me know your thoughts and if you have any experience with other shafts in these. Any feedback from anyone would be appreciated.

    Especially after reading these reviews I am so glad I bought these irons last night. Went in to PGASS and saw a table with clearance clubs. The set they had was a custom order of PX.6 1/2" long and the grips were not on. The manager got them set up for me and I was able to test them out and they felt great. I cant wait to get them on the course this weekend. Now to find a gap wedge. My Ping i20's are in serious danger of being replaced.

    Nice purchace. Once you start hitting the DPC's you'll quickly forget about the i20's and you'll never look back.

    I am playing the combo set, there is definitely a difference in forgiveness, but it isn't huge. I feel like if you can hit the DPC long irons, than you should be ok with the CB short irons.

    I saw those! Good grab! They are CBs, aren't they? I bought a set of the 5-PW pocket cavities. What a great deal! $399. I haven't played with mine yet, but I went to the range and hit a few balls just to try them out. Feel great, great trajectory, and really forgiving. I had knee surgery a little while back so I haven't played in a few months and that was the first time I've tried to hit any balls other than chipping and putting. So I definitely put the forgiveness to the test! LOL Doc said I can start playing again in September.<br />
    <br />
    Anyway, it was a deal I couldn't pass by. Honestly as big a ho as I am I can't believe I never even looked at these! Pretty sure my Titleists are coming out of the bag. Easier to elevate the long irons, but a nice mid-flight with the short irons and a better player can hit it all over the face, relatively speaking of course, and get good results. My Titleists are great irons, but much less helpful when missing the sweet spot by much more than a centimeter either way.<br />
    <br />
    Anybody know which of the incoming J15s are replacing the DPC? I am hoping it's the DF. I don't particularly like the look of the new Dual Cavity they are bringing out. Turbo rubber?

    Had my dpc's with KBS tour for 2 days! Quite possibly the best feeling iron I have ever had. Loved my AP2 712's but these feel and look better. Also a touch more forgiving!

    Does anyone have the DPC 3 iron?<br />
    <br />
    I just ordered the J40 CB's 4-PW, and I'm considering picking up the DPC 3 iron instead of the CB for a little more forgiveness. I also read in another thread that the back of the muscle pad is visible at address with the CB, which is a bit annoying.<br />
    <br />
    For those with DPC 3 iron, is the back of the club hidden at address?

    Just committed heresy. Traded these in at golfsmith in short pump, va. 4-p PC flighted 5.5<br />
    Never truly embraced the 4i, don't have time or money for a reshaft. Loved the looks, forgiving despite the fact that I only play 1-2 times per month, wish they had a gw option.<br />
    <br />
    Anyways, traded them because they gave me over $250 and I only paid 280 for them last year. <br />
    Went with an uglier, fatter model and had money left over.

    I actually purchased a 5-PW set w/px because they couldn't order me 3-PW w/DG. Then the store manager called me a few days later(they know me well LOL) and said a guy bought a set of 3-PW w/DG, kept them for a few weeks and played a couple of round with them and brought them back, so he held them for me so I went back up there and picked them up. Same price $399!<br />
    <br />
    As for the 3 iron I can't see the pocket at address. I can see the back of the sole, but I play a 3 iron off my shirt logo and have a little forward press. And again, I can barely see it and I didn't notice it until I tested it so I could reply to you. I had an AP2 3 iron with my Titleists and it was the same way. If you like playing a 3 iron you'll really like having it. A nice comfort level with the extra size and forgiveness w/o the offset of most clubs.<br />
    <br />
    Out of curiosity, has anyone noticed hitting their DPC substantially longer than other forged player's clubs? I'm hitting these at least a full club further than every other players forged cb I've played. I'm not complaining, by the way, I'm just wondering if it's just me.

    hello gents<br />
    to those that are still playing the j40 dpc, do you think they would to much for a 19 handicapper?<br />
    and has anyone gone to the j15 dpf, and is there a difference, in particular, size.<br />
    <br />
    I like the look of the j40, and that it is longer from heel to toe.

    Much more forgiving than the mp54. Yes a 19 hcap could easily play them. <br />
    <br />
    I would highly recommend them to a mid to high handicap that really wants a clean looking forged iron.

    Still playing my J40 DPC, like them pretty well, but they are not as forgiving as other more GI clubs (AP1 for example). I think the J15 DPF has a larger blade and is more forgiving. But I've never hit them.
