Bridgestone J15 Thread *MB pics pg.8 - DF vs VPC pics pg 7*


Recommended Posts

I will get the comparison pics up once I have my J15's in my hand but show you a few I have handy right now.

 

Is it the J15s or the J015s your getting? If it is as per your fotos they are superb irons.

 

FYI for everyone else the J015 is a JDM/Asian market iron.

 

@MPG - sorry I miss read your post so my query not really relevant.

I went and tried a bunch of different irons looking for something with better feel and I wanted to try and see if anything played better than my ping I irons. I tried mizuno mp h5 54 15 jpx ez forged apex ap2 716 CB and Bridgestone j15 CB and dpf. The j15 CB I tried on a whim and I thought I had no chance with them. Well I was flushing them and they felt great and my miss hits were only 10yds short. I picked up a set on the BST and want to try some px LZ 6.0 in them. The Pings may end up in the back up bag

I felt the same about my Ping I25's. I tried everything to knock them out of the bag. My J15's knocked them out. And still continually fend off all challengers. Lol

how are those j015's doing?

 

I ended up trading them. The reason is I just dug them in the ground too much. I did the same with my J40's. Also, they were too soft. I played two rounds and had some range time with the 9 iron and it was looking identical to my J15 9 iron that I have over 100 rounds on. The J15's really hold up. Now the dilemma.

 

I traded for a set of S55's with Steelfibers I110's in them. So far, I am hitting the S55's longer and straighter. I am thinking of putting Steelfibers in the J15's now. I never thought I would change from the Modus 120 shafts but the results are staggering.

I had been messing around with the i95's and amazed how stable they are for a lightweight shaft, but back to the modus 125's.

Just recently upgraded from my trusty J38 DPC with PX 5.5's

 

Ended up with J15 CB's with Recoil 670's.

 

Only 3 rounds in, but absolutely loving them

I had the 110's in my j15. Great combo.

 

What are you playing now?

 

TC888 with i95 s. I think the 95 and 110 play pretty much the same to be honest and this was a custom tour build so I just left it the way it is, didn't want to mess with fourteens build quality. Thinking of doing the 110 in the iblade.....also been tempted to get another set of cb.

Made it to the driving range last night to hit my J15's with the s300's and man was I sore afterwords. My elbows hurt and I feel like I was at the gym for a 2 hour workout.
^ one reason I don't play dg. Been a nippon/recoil/steelfiber person for a few years now.
i put a recoil in my apex ut and what a differences. I have c taper lite in my irons and almost regret that i didnt put recoil instead.
