2-iron and Hybrid. Need both?

Bridgestone J33B 2-iron / J33 Airmuscle
Hey guys,

As some of you already know, I've been looking to buy a J33B 2-iron. However, I recently purchased Airmuscle 19* from Bridgstone. I like how this club perfoms and have no problem hitting it good with it. My question is... should I still get 2-iron? I haven't played Airmuscle on a field yet, but I like how it performs during the range session. Will I gain distance or control with 2-iron that I may be missing with Airmuscle? Will 2-iron be more useful or the Airmuscle on a regular basis? What are your opinions? Thanks.

I think you're fine with just the AirMuscle. It provides with more forgiveness, the 2-iron blade will definantly be harder to hit off the deck (depending on how good you are, but if you play the J33 blades then you're probably a stick). But the AirMuscle may not flow as consistently in your set if that matters. But if lower scores are more important then the AirMuscle and dropping the 2-iron is the answer.

I'm interested in getting an AirMuscle and reshafting with a DG.

How does it feel, does it feel solid, like a forged iron.

Hey guys,

... i'd stick with the airmuscle and forget about the j33b 2 iron. those j33b's are about the finest-looking sticks out there imo, but the 2 iron is going to be hard to hit consistently well. the airmuscle in my mind is not really a hybrid, but a suped-up iron. it will flow fine in your set. the feel is very good, though won't be quite as good as the pure blade 2 iron. it is not a high-hitting club like a wood hybrid.

 

bottom line ... the airmuscle is an easier to hit 2 iron. you can control the flight of it very well. i'd set it up at 1/2" longer than your 3 iron with the same shaft and 1/2 to 1* flatter lie angle and play it as a forgiving 2 iron (that's what i'm going to do with my j33 cb's). you may hit it 5 yards further and may hit it the same as the blade 2 iron. while not a particularly forgiving club, it'll be loads more so than the blade 2 iron.

      Early in hand photos of the new GT2 models t the truck.  As soon as they show up on the range in player's bags we'll get some better from the top photos and hopefully some comparison photos against the last model.
