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.
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.
The Adams XTD forged and Mizuno JPX wedges look good on paper but I have yet to see any IRL.
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.
Ordered the J40 DPC w/ steelfiber shafts; I think will be the ultimate answer for me.
Best irons I have owned. Playing mine with Steel Fibers. Here to stay in the bag. No desire to stray at all.
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.
So there are a ton of DPC and CB combo sets floating on Ebay. I see how everyone says how forgiving the DPC's are. How forgiving are the CB's?
Does anyone have the DPC 3 iron?
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.
For those with DPC 3 iron, is the back of the club hidden at address?
