<div class="IPBDescription">Which set is more forgiving?</div>Which set do you like better? Do the J33 CBs play easier because the 8-PW are cavity backs instead of muscle backs? <br />

    personally, i would go with the cb's. I think the cavities would just give you more confidence than a blade would, but that's just me. Hoping to be in a set of J33 CB's soon!

    I'll go for cb, for the forgiveness.<br />
    The truth is, I really spent some time to "master" the full swing of my wedges (cg10) which are mb and less room for error.

    like everyone said before the cb's are definately more forgiving. But the cb's are also workable still and bridgestone makes great stuff so either way i think ur getting a quality iron set!

    Well I think it goes both ways. The long to mid irons on the combo set really get up in the air. If you struggle getting height, the combos would work better. On the other hand, it may create some issues if you are already a high ball hitter.<br />

    The ball flight is lower with the CBs but the short irons are definitely more consitent on distance with slight mishits than the short irons in the combos. Both are nice sets tho

    I was at the PGA show in Orlando. I was told by three reps at Bridgestone, that the J33 combo's were the most forgiving.

    While doing a few demo days this year, I've been asked this same question quite a few times. At first, I was pretty sure the combos were more forgiving, however after a little while I realized that for some folks, the CBs were a little more forgiving and vice versa. Now, when people ask me, I simply say the only way to know is to try them both out with your swing and keep in mind your typical mishits and swing tendencies. I usually hand them both and say, "tell me what you think," because it really boils down to the individual person. <br />

    Sorry I couldn't bee more helpful, if you've got any other questions, feel free to ask.<br />

    ... the difference between the combo blades and cb scoring irons are almost non existent. mid irons are close to a draw (slight edge to the combo's) but the long irons are certainly more forgiving in the combo's. i can control the trajectory better with the cb's than i could with the combo's. <br />
