    Wish they would offer the 48* in Japan in NA as well.




    Not to many options when it comes to bounce.

    I wanted to try a 58/8 but only see a 58/12 on the U.S. website. Can't believe they aren't offering a lower bounce option in the 58.






    I was ready to pull the trigger but didn't like the higher bounce as the only option. If I go with the higher loft and strengthen then I get some offset I don't want to get the bounce. I ran through the custom option twice but so far I have held off.

    Apparently Bridgestone’s staff doesn’t have a clue. The website listed 58/12 as the only option. I emailed them and they said the 58/8 would not be available in the U.S. Then I found a seller that had two 58/8’s in the U.S. so I bought them and emailed pics to Bridgestone customer service. They couldn’t explain how I got 58/8 wedges. Then I emailed the serial #’s and they finally replied that they were mistaken and the website is wrong. The 58/8 is avaliable in the U.S. and not the 58/12. They have to correct the website. Really???

    Raised Micro groves like Callaway MD 4? Just by the photos?

    I've been playing that j33 combos since 2005 and while those are the only Bridgestone sticks in my bag I do love the company.



    However, between the point that you made regarding the wedges in the website error and just the straight difficulty of finding their products, their online presence is really quite poor.

    Did you order yours directly from Bridgestone? Apparently the 58/8 and 58/12 are available in Japan but not here.

    I ordered directly from the Bridgestone website. I thought it was was 58/12 based on the website but as you when it arrived it was a 58/8.

    They don’t have a clue what they are selling. They told me more than once that only 58/12 was available and 58/8 would not be available in the U.S. so I didn’t place an order with them. Now it turns out I could have ordered a 58/8 from the website the entire time. How do you run a golf company like this?

    How do you buy them on the website? I see text for "buy now" but no actual clickable link.

    Thanks for posting these photos, I am interested in these wedges. How do you like them and what do you compare them with? How is the 58/8 out of the bunkers? Vokeys, Clevelands? I am thinking of upgrading my old Bridgestone WC wedges. Thanks.

    I have the 54 and love the club. Really good feel and distance control.

    Just got a 58. Looks great. I have played a mack daddy 60 bent 58 U grind for a few years. Have not played the XW-1 yet but the sole inspires confidence.

    The 58/8 is my favorite wedge. I’ve purchased extras since they have discounted them.

    That black finish looks so good. Any idea on grind/bounce options?




    It just looks to me like the 14* bounce is 10* or less. Any thoughts? Am I seeing it wrong?

    That's great, the Vokey M grind works for me.
