Thanks to all for the great input. Once i get the time, I'll throw some pictures up of everything. Unfortunatley, it's snowy and cold here in Chicago, so these puppies will only be played in a dome unitl spring. Atleast that gives me quite a few months to get used to the set!!

 

Thanks again to all!

You'll find the J33 irons much better than TM irons IMO unless you're coming from Firesole Forged/X-300 or 300 series irons.

 

As for the J33460. Better than the tin canny R7 and R5s. Can't speak about the Bridgestone woods but the the TM rescues ain't no big shakes but he TM 200 is a solid FW.

I too feel that bridgestone is one of a very few I could play throughout the bag.

 

ME THREE.

 

Driver - I LOVE the feeling of Bridgestone (and Titleist) drivers. Much more solid, and less 'tinny' than others. Distance is comparable, feel is tremendous.

 

Woods - see driver comments.

 

Irons - I have abackup set of Bridgestone/Tourstage Z101's, and I feel they are some of the most superb irons ever made. The J33's don't disappoint - their sole design is marvelous, and they're even MORE flexible than the Z101's. I love 'em, and would not mind playing a set.

 

Wedges - My backup/rotation wedges are 56*/60* J33 wedges. As mentioned before - the sole design is phenomenal on these wedges,a nd they're very solid. A little crisp for my tastes, but good wedges nonetheless.

 

Congrats on your purchases!! We're all expecting a FULL REVIEW!!! :)

What do you mean by they are a little crisp? Do they not spin as much? Are they not as soft as the CG10's? Please explain...... I am interested in getting the J33 wedges

Bear in mind that I've played PING wedges all my golfing life, and only recently picked up the J33's. PING wedges (especially the older Zing models I used,a s well as the M/B's I also own) have a somewhat muted, very different feeling to them, than the J33's.

 

The J33's just seem to "click" off the ball more than I'm used to, that's all. They're not as buttery soft as CG10's, but the J33's have a nicer feeling to them than Vokeys, or Cleveland 588/900's, IMO. With a good soft ball (HX 56, ProV1, etc.), the J33's are magic. Great wedges, you won't be disappointed!

Great stix, congrats.... but the BRIDGESTONE DRIVER HEADCOVER SUCKS big time.

 

I have the 460 J33 and damn, the head cover looks like a boxing glove.... it 's so nasty looking that I'm using my old titleist headcovers.

I used my 460 with NV on the course last night for the first time. Firstly the headcover, I think it's great. The easiest headcover to remove of any 460CC club I have used. I think it looks cool :cheesy: .

 

I hit the 9.5 with NV and the 21 hybrid around 9 holes, this driver is seriously long. I was playing on parts of the course I thought I wouldn't see again, just goes and goes. I'll hold back some enthusiasm for a couple of comp rounds first but nice first impressions. The hybrid is just as pretty and very very simple to use.

 

3 wood arrives Monday :)

I just sent Joe Kwok a Bridgestone J33R 460, 10.5 to have a Diamana Red (Stiff) installed. I can't wait to get it back to try in our cold weather!!

 

Oop's !

 

That would be a Diamana 63 Stiff.

 

You will absolutley love that combo. That's what I ordered direct from Bridgestone...except I have the 8.5*

 

Very happy with the club.
