For those who have played the Bridgestone J33 forged CBs, how do you like them? Feel, forgiveness, comparison to other forged cbs????

 

Thanks, I just bought a used set of these with NS PRO 950 shafts without even trying them so any feedback is appreciated.

Slightly lower ball flight than MP60s and a little firmer. I picked up a used set with S300 and have played them a couple of time so far. Cant compare them directly to the mp60s since they dont have the same shafts.

Not as forgiving as mp60s but more so than mp32s. Slight distinction I know since none of them very much. Great looking irons tho

Nice enough irons if you can get ahold of the right set. I am one of the ones that never got their custom set.

In response to the turnaround on Bridgestone orders, its true if you 'order' anything pertainant to Bridgestone, save the balls and clubs readily available at local pro-shops, the tenative finished goods date is scheduled for July 1st. IF YOU WANT THEM...IF YOU NEED THEM, as much as I did, its well worth the drive to a local demo day, where they will make them up on site!!! In leiu of waiting 6 weeks, there is less opportunity cost involved in driving 3-4 hours if need be. Oh, by the way, the j33cb's....love them. They replace my Callaway s2h2s quite nicely. Even more so forgiving despite the fact they have a slightly smaller head. Great feel, dead on accuracy...though they may have a higher flight trajectory than what im used to, even with project x 6.0...they are again very playable, and very forgiving (with respect to my former irons).

Well after talking about Bridgestone for a couple of weeks on this board I finally made the switch from Cleveland Irons to the Bridgestone CB and Im so much happier with my new irons so much better feeling and the looks have a slight advantage to. I had my Bridgestones bent to the same lofts of my old CG2's so my ball distance would not flucuate. It had been so long since I had a forged iron I almost forgot how great they feel. That was until I took the 6 iron out and pured it Sweet Butter baby I feel that my game is back with these irons. ;)

I played with my new Bridgestone J33 CBs yesterday and hit a lot of balls on the range today and all I could say is, these are even better than the J33 Combos I had. The simple design is sweet, no bulky looking short irons, hardly any offset and may not be as soft as a Mizuno forging, but the feel is just as sweet and very solid. The shafts are 1/4" shorter but it worked out for me. At first, I thought I was losing some yardage but I stopped to really try to identify the sweet spot and focus on it and right away, distance and ball flight improved. Great clubs and works great with the NS Pro 950 shafts for me.

 

 

 

Thanks for the replies.

I love mine!! I might bend them 1 deg. flat, but so far so good. I'm a high ball hitter and while I still hit these high (not a bad thing), the clubs are just as long, if not longer than anything else I've tried. I've become a total B-stone junky!! Love every club in my bag...The wedges are great!! Just quality products all around and the prices can't be beat.
