So when pictures were posted of the j40 line, there were a lot of people saying they would buy an mb version if one were produced. Well, it didn't happen then, but it seems there was enough demand generated that they decided to release a limited amount of an mb for the new J15 line that will come out in February.





This thread will be for those that pre-order, or eventually order a set of j15's. I know this is kind of early, but I'm interested in seeing who orders what, and to get some great information all in one place.





I have played basically every set of Bridgestone irons since the j33's, and really miss my j36 blades, even though the j40's were really nice!



Anyone out there pre-order yet?

    Yeah for whatever reason the preliminary specs I've seen have the DF with the least amount of offset in the long irons

    from what I've seen they have the same offset as the cb. the df look like they might cost a little more too..but none the less I bet they are sweet!

    Sorry for posting this chart everywhere, I'm just so excited I came across it, but the CB and DF have my eye, even from this all the profiles look great. I think the J40 DPC are an excellent set of irons and would love to see what people end up with in the J15 line. This might even "inspire" me to take the plunge on the DF or something.

    I'm in the pre-order for a set left handed J15CB's 3-pw w/ DG X-100's. As a lefty, I buy most golf equipment unseen anyway lol. These CB's are just too beautiful to pass up and after all the rave over the J40 series I'm super stoked.

    2 things I'd change about the j15's just from what I've seen...



    1) a little longer hosel like the 33b's

    2) a squarer toe like the 36's.

    same here. image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> I was going to go through discount dan's but fairway won't charge until a week before they ship, dd's charges right away, just easier to manage for me.


    Yup, same for me.

    Glad to see others jumping on board the pre-order!

    Both great calls. That's the awesome thing about blade irons - there are enough great sets out there to satisfy individual preferences like the ones you mentioned (longer heel-to-toe, squared off toe, different leading edge grinds, etc.). Look forward to some playing reviews of all the new J15 gear.

    You can get traditional club designs from known quality companies sight unseen and be pretty safe. Those MBs and CBs pass the eyeball test with flying colors, I highly doubt they will disappoint...



    I do prefer a more square toe though, but the top line looks beautiful and that is more important.

    The whole range looks fabulous. A shame their UK distribution network is so poor. Really fancy a couple of their new wedges. Eyes peeled..

    I'm not sure exactly but It would seem the dpc's fit between the df's and the dpf's, leaning more toward the dpf. The dpf just has the "turbo rubber" insert, so I'm not sure how that will perform compared to the dpc.

    Does anyone have the complete loft specs on the MB, CB, and DF?

    I just noticed the 7 iron on the CB and DF are at 32* according the the picture posted earlier on this thread.





    Seems a bit strong compared to my j40cb @ 35* for the 7 iron.

    Well I am am gaming lots of Bridgestone stuff. Have for awhile now. I tried to unseat the J40 driver and the irons both and it never worked out for the competitor.



    I will probably end up with the New driver, and of course I will try the 3 wood. I am not sure I want to stop playing my J40 irons, I am really getting some good results out of them now and I do not want to change. I have always been a Cleveland wedge guy, and my 52 and 60 are cleveland but the 56 is a J40 as well.

    not sure on the mb exactly....but I'd guess the lofts are more traditional based on the chart posted above.

    Yeah that is weird, only thing I can think of is they are trying to "keep up" with everyone else's strong iron lofts. You notice the 5 degrees of separation on the first couple to get the wedge close the to the old 47 of most of their previous clubs PW to not mess with yardage gaps too much. Standard length is also a quarter inch longer than the J40.

    Yeah, I agree. I like to keep my lofts steady and my yardages consistent no matter what set I play. I try to avoid 'techy' irons and strong lofts..I prefer simple and traditional.
