Bridgestone introduces all-in-one Tour B ADF box set

Published

on

While you may be familiar with box sets of golf clubs from big box stores, you haven’t seen a bundle like Bridgestone just announced. The Tour B ADF set comes with clubs, a stand bag, and custom Bag Boy T-10 Travel Case.

With respect to the clubs in question, the set includes: XD5 Driver, XDF 3-Wood (15 degrees), XDH Hybrid (18 degrees), X-HI Driving Irons, X-CBP forged irons, XW-1 Wedges (52, 56-degrees). The driver, fairway wood and hybrid models previously only existed in Asian markets, but due to popular demand, they are being brought to North America exclusively for the ADF (Accuracy, Distance, Feel) set.

“Not only have we optimized the individual elements of ADF, but also the buying experience, as we’re making it as easy as possible for discerning golfers to select a full set of premium products at an unbeatable price,” says Zack Kupperbusch, Golf Club Marketing. “From world-class tires to superior golf balls, everything Bridgestone makes is engineered for performance and the ADF Set includes an array of our most acclaimed equipment in one convenient package.”

Golf Pride Multicompound red/platinum grips are standard across the set. The Tour B ADF set is available in regular or stiff, and with either a 9.5 or 10.5-dgree driver. The retail value of the individual components is over $3,500, however, the set costs $2,800.

    Bridgestone makes some outstanding gear. I wish they’d focus on getting distribution in US golf shops instead of these kinds of silly moves.

    This flies in the face of customer fitting being paramount. Can’t have it both ways.

Mizuno announces new JPX 919 Tour Forged irons are coming August 29 (via cryptic Twitter post)

Published

on

While cryptic, it does appear Mizuno is announcing via Twitter that its new JPX 919 Tour irons are coming on 8/29/18. One would have to assume that means they will be launched on 8/29, not actually hitting retail on 8/29, but that remains to be seen.

We recently spotted a number of new irons on the USGA conforming list, including the JPX919 Tour irons pictured above, JPX919 Forged and JPX919 Hot Metal irons from Mizuno. So it’s likely that the JPX 919 Tour Forged irons won’t be alone in the JPX 919 family when they hit retail.

The JPX 919 Tour iron specifically pictured in the Tweet above seems to be the replacement for Mizuno’s JPX 900 Tour irons that Brooks Koepka used to win this year’s U.S. Open and PGA Championship. Learn more about the original JPX 900 Tour design from Mizuno’s Chris Voshal on our Gear Dive podcast.

Diving a bit deeper into the picture from Mizuno’s Tweet, it appears the JPX919 Tour irons will utilize Mizuno’s familiar Grain Flow forging, and will be made from 1025E; that’s based on the hosel stamping that says “GF Forged HD 1025E.”

Stay tuned for more info from Mizuno.
