Bridgestone Tour B X-BL Combo Irons JDM, In hand Photos

These just came in from Japan. I ordered then through Tour Spec Golf. Ahhh.... where is a course. These things look so good I can't wait to hit them. Smaller heel to toe than they look in the pics. Sole width is are generous for a players forging and the grind looks awesome. Approx same chassis size as the Srixon Z 785 irons.

That meat behind the sweet spot has to feel good. Chrome finish with a real quality satin face is quality. Wish they released these outside Japan. I was late to order them so all I could get was in NS Pro Modus3 Tour 120. 37.75" 5 iron so 1/4" shorter. Nice.

    Are the soles similar in width to the J15 cb?

    Those are lovely. Not sure why Bstone wouldn't send them to the US, but I'd be interested if they did.

    Super irons.

    I’d love to get the cb. Afraid that these blades aren’t forgiving enough for my game

    Gorgeous. Only thing I'd complain about is how they have to put the word 'forged' in there.

    I like the fact they are chrome, great size and shape, don’t have thin soles, minimal offset, good med topline and lastly they are hard to get so they stand out. Like an Audi or Alfa Romero. Unique.

    Few on eBay right now.

    I didn't get the X-cb's. They look bigger than the J33 cb's Very wide soles and I didn't care for the looks when I saw the actual (non marketing) photos of the read heads.

    No, the J15CB sole is def larger.

    Those to me look more the size & grind of the old J33 Combo's and or the J15MB's I have hanging on a rack.

    Watched the LPGA last night and Jin Young Ko has the new Tour B CB in the bag but the driver is an Epic flash.

    Those are phenomenal.

    IMO the prior years x-cb look way better than the new x-cbs.

    Also IMO the x-cbs are every bit as forgiving as the j15s. They just don’t feels as pure across the entire face. The ball still does about what it does when you off-strike a j15 though. The benefit of the x-cb is the feel off the pure shots is > j15. The benefit of the j15 (if you see it that way) is better feel on slight miss hits.
