    Played Mizuno for 10 years+, Endo forging through Bridgestone (J15cb) was noticeably softer then my 53s,64s, and MP4s. I love Mizzy but Bridgestone defeated them quite handedly. You may find some Boutique irons that are as soft but it will not be easy.




    Any new Bridgestone irons I should be hitting? The J15 cbs are great looking irons!




    Absolutely, the new X-CB and X-BL.



    The BL is a blended set of cavity back and muscle back. They look fantastic.



    That said, even to this day you will never find a better combination of incredibly soft feel, great performance, and incomparable forgiveness in a player's iron.

    Ping i210. Very forgiving and as soft a cast club as you can find. I'm obviously biased, but I purchased them because I think they have all the players iron qualities I wanted in the most forgiving package.




    Do these clubs have quite a bit of offset?




    Lee Westwood just won with them... they must have something, but I doubt it's a lot of offset. Ping's Tour Players are playing them.



    Very soft feel - very.

    The 210s look good. They are on my list, and I am anxious to see how they “feel” compared to the other forged irons on my list.

    They do feel amazing, tried them with the i500 and the feel and consistency blew the i500 out of the water.

    They seem like they could be a great value as their price tag is much lower than all of the other clubs I will be testing.

    As others have said, JPX919 Tour. Players look but according to Mizunos data, slightly more forgiving than the AP3 and almost as forgiving as the MMC.

    I personally did not like the Tour B X-CB as much as my J15CB irons. The new Tour B X-CB coming out in 2019 might be different. They look like a nice blend of the J15CB and current Tour B X-CB

    I don't know if you can consider the P760's to be player's CB irons (what's that even mean now a days anyway??) but they are extremely soft and seemed pretty forgiving on my typical low on the face miss hit. 919 Forged seemed very forgiving also but were not as soft, especially on anything low or toe side.

    Tried Titleist ap2, mizuno mp5, cobra forged mb/cb, ping anser forged, taylormade 2014 mc, srixon z765, miura cb57, among a few other sets and nothing beats the j40 DPC for forgiveness and soft feel. Awesome super soft and the slightly longer heel to toe length combined with the sole/turf interaction and the pockets in muscle provides a surprising amount of forgiveness. There's a reason Fred Couples still bags them!

    Love my Bridgestone J15 CB's!



    Granted that there might be a few blades that are softer but I don't believe there is a better combo of Look, Feel, Forgiving, Performance for the COST then the J15 CB's. Over the years, I've gamed or tested most all. J15 CB's are the Total Package!

    Does Bridgestone have a new iron coming out that will compare to these?

    ... Just a personal preference from playing a similar look for so many years, but I like a smaller/mid size iron head. That said, hitting the DPC's at the PGAShow on demo day I was just blown away by how good they felt and how forgiving they were. If I could play a longer heel to toe iron, these would be at the top of my list.
