Bridgestone - please bring the J15 CB back!

Recommended Posts

After gaming J40 CB's for a few years it was time for another set of irons. I went with S55 over J15 because of durability and it's proven to be a successful choice for me. I haven't had to replace the irons in 3 years, until now. On the fence as to whether go with another set of S55, J40 CB, or a mint set of J15 CB's. Looks like I'll have plenty of time to reach a decision.

Are there any Bridgestone J15CB users that are gaming Mizuno S18 or Mack Daddy Forged Wedges out there? I am trying to find a wedge that suits me. Love the feel of my J15CB irons, but struggle playing Vokey wedges due to "muted" feel. By the way, I am a Lefty so my choices are limited....

Considering your two choices, I've hit both and prefer the Callaway MD5's. While both have the "solid" feel you're looking for the MD5 offers a little more versatility. FWIW, I'm of the opinion they're the best MD yet.

I have a combo set of J40 DPC and CB set that I will never sell.

Currently play the J15 DPF and don’t think I’ll ever change especially after re-shafting with PX LZ irons

I've gamed the J15 DPF's since 2017 and I absolutely love them. I tried using the Japan only Mizzy MP 55s for a bit, but went back to the J15s rather quickly. Wish I could get a back up set easily but they've gone quite pricey on secondary.

I play Mack Daddy Forged wedges with my J15 CB's and for me they feel very similar to the irons.  They match well in my opinion.

I have no idea why but their korean branch has the largest selection of irons even more than the japanese one. many korean golfers' think bridgestone's v300 iron models are the best irons (now they have 7th generation of v300 in korea, which is not even available in japan). What a weird world. You can check out other models in their websites. 201cb looks quite nice.
