Click on Bridgestone, or any other manufacturer, and trust what the numbers tell you. Maltby is usually spot on.

Very cool. Thanks for sharing. 

 

I am currently on the J15df (dual forged I believe) and they are awesome. 

Ive owned a few J15 MB’s and have a CB set coming soon. I got the DF’s because of a low bid on ebay and won them. 

 

These are easiky a full club longer than the CB’s. I am blown away because at 42 my 9i hasn’t been my 150y club for years. Now its back and my PW is my 140 club which stinks because I need a gap wedge to go 125-130 haha. 

 

These are long but still stop on a dime. Soft but because of these being a little linger have a different sound. Like a “tink” in there but nothing to complain about. 

 

All my buds play p790’s and many Wrx buds make fun of me for always playing irons from the last decade. But I have too much gear so buy at discount. Try and then sell if they don’t work out. 

 

Well these j15df’saren’t going anywhere. They have i95 Steelfibers too. Way to light but really digging them. 

 

But eventually will go back to the j15cb’s because of the gap issues. Just cool to see a 9i go 155+ if I stomp on it and watch it bounce tice and stop!

 

bStone is still a great choice and will put them up against any brand!

J40 CB not the DPC one of the best clubs ever.  mic drop!

Interesting comparing the J40 CB (labeled as “V” cavity) versus DPC (labeled as straight cavity). The dual pocket cavities move the horizontal CG almost 0.2” towards the toe and increase MOI from 11.5

Hot take, J40 DPC >>>>> CB > J15 CB > the rest

MR-23 US Spec is a great choice that I have not seen mentioned so far from a cursory glance at posts.

As most of us are Off Contract and Free Agents at present,hence playing Mizuno Irons, i didnt think  groove compliance was important,sorry

Depends if you keep a handicap or not. Or play club haggles. Still have to use legal golf clubs. Otherwise may as well go full noise and track down an Air Hammer or the original Callaway ERC.

I went to get fitted this past January for irons. My efficiency rating on trackman was almost ideal with the X-CBs with x100s. The fitter said he to keep them. The only setup that beat em by a couple yards were the new apex 21 and those are 3 degrees stronger. 
 

I played the J15 CB, HF2 in long irons. Both are super solid. I wish Bridgestone would release more often.

My J15 CB's have been in the bag for 4 years.  Best combo of looks, feel, and forgiveness of a players CB iron that I've ever played.  Plan on keeping them until they wear out. 

 

I agree with everything here. I’m still gaming my j15s as well and won’t move off them till they wear out

I played J40 CB's and now play TourB X-CB's.  Very similar clubs and both fantastic.  I wish Bridgestone wasn't so elusive with their irons.
