It is still the best driver I have ever hit. I recently replaced the Accra T70 I ahd in it with an Accra SC75, and could not be happier. I am hitting the ball straighter and longer than with my old drivers.

 

The other day I drove a 314 yard par 4 green in one. The tee box was above the hole, but hitting a drive that far is a really good drive for me. It was all carry too. There is a big bunker right in front of the green to catch anything that comes up short.

I can honestly say I love this driver. I fight a high ball flight and spin, and this is the best, most forgiving driver that I've found to date. I'm still hitting it slightly higher than I want, but my drives seems to carry forever, and come down at an angle that let's them roll out in good fairway conditions.

 

I used to be a long hitter with my Ping TISI 7* and Titleist 983E 7.5*, then kind of lost my way with some higher launching drivers (e.g., G2). Thought it was just me getting older. Now that I've found a driver that agrees with me, I've added that distance back plus more.

 

The facility where I practice has several high school teams that come out and practice during the week. When I've been hitting the J33R, I've had probably 8 or 9 of the kids come up and ask if they could hit it. And most of them said they gained yards and control versus their current setup.

I have a 905R Accra Sc65 in the bag now but not looking to sell the J33R 460 at all. In fact, looking for a shaft that will give me more control without compromising the all out distance trait of this head. Maybe on a long chase but the J33R 460 is as good as it comes.

Any reviews on the 420? I've been "searching" and can't find much. I won a limey at another site and just realized I prefer 400/420 ccs and not so deep faced drivers.

 

 

 

I used the 420 cc Bridgestone J33R, also a very good and solid driver if that's the size preferred, the 460 for me is much more forgiving. I remember the 420 launched really low, a 10.5 flying like a 9.5 and so on.

decided to buy my little brothers 10.5 and i'm buying a bimatrx proto to try in it so hopefully that will stop the hooks that he talked about with the nv 65s that came in it. love the look and feel but lefts=bad for me. but i figure an 80g x flexed shaft should help out a lot, then i only worry about the higher launching bimatrx and the 10.5 loft. but we'll see

Still a beast. Knocked my Comp right out of the bag. Straightest driver I've ever hit and as long as any legal club that it can be compared to. It has an incredibly solid feel, but my only complaint is that it has an unsual (not a bad) sound that is a little hollow. Make sure to match the right shaft to the head.

Heresy I know but I don't love the J33R 460 despite trying it with numerous shafts(757, NV85). It feels dull and dead compared with the 905R face. I much prefer the sound and feel of the J33P. The P is a wonderful driver but relegated to the bench as my 905R Accra SE80 is cannon...Thinking of going with a 420 with an Accra T70...

WOW! I didn't realize there was that much love for this club out there. I've been toying with the idea of picking one up - I have an AJ Tech Z45 just sitting around, so I'll throw in any new driver I try (r580xd tp is still my gamer). Only question re: the Bridgestone is - what's the face angle like, especially on the 10.5*? Not too closed, I hope! Any thoughts?

Yes, the 460 10.5 is easily the best driver for my game. I have no problems with the stock NV shaft. Great feel, setup and LONG. I'm looking to pick up a J33 3Wood also.
