I play the J40 21 and 24 hybrids, so the lack of a 3 iron does not bother me.  There are plenty of wedges available from Mizuno and Titleist of various loft and bounce that suit me.  Every manufacturer has the clubs that they do best.  I use a Taylor Made RBZ 3HL because it is the best for me.  

The J40 DPCs are great for me.  I have been playing them for 5 years and don't plan on changing.

I never realized how rare the 3 iron is, so feel lucky to have one.

As far as wedges, I have added 3 at that end of the bag (dropped the 4 iron, and play 5w, 3w, driver). Up and downs from 100 in are better than most, so very happy with the set-up.

Currently looking to set up a set of j15 dfp the same way!

The PX Flighted shaft was challenging for some swings.
Switch in a XP95 or PX LZ shaft and wow!
Love my combo set with the LZs.

I hit the J40 DPC's for the first time a few days ago. I was really impressed. I agree with the other posters. It is a great set of irons.

(Fade to Black).  They are more forgiving then the AP2's.

I would have to agree.  Plus, IMO, they look way better than the AP2s.  Something about forgiveness in such a clean package that is appealing.  No multi-material badges, designs, etc. to clutter it up.  Tell me this doesn't look fantastic...Posted Image
Hands down, I would buy a set of these new in box if they came out now, I missed the boat!!!!  Argh!!!!!!!!
beautiful clubs!
These are the nicest looking irons Iíve owned, and playing a nice-looking iron gives me more confidence.  But I moved to the J15 DPF as I thought theyíd be even more forgiving but they werenít.  So went away from Bridgestone to Mizuno JPX line (not bad looking in their own right).

Well, I took them out yesterday for the first time and tried to get in some holes between the rain, lightning, and hail.  First hole was an easy 5 iron to the middle of the fairway, 8 iron to the back of the green, easy 2-putt par.  The second hole is a 170 yard par 3- a 7 iron lands on the front of the green, 2 hops, and...it...hits the flagstick, bouncing off to about 18 inches, easy birdie.  I skip a few holes because the clouds are not so white and fluffy anymore and go over to the next par 3.  It's 165 with sand in the front- I hit a 7 iron a little out on the toe.  Knowing how I hit it, I expect it to be short of the sand.  Nope!  It clears the sand, lands on the front of the green and roles back pin-high about 3 feet away from the hole.  I'm now 3 holes in with these irons and sitting -2.  Not a bad first impression.

I have been reading alot on the Bridgestone J15 cb and see that they get great reviews.  How do these compare?  I also have Callaway Legacy Black and Srixon z-tx II in the running as well.  Any advice on the who the winner should be?

I have both although I've only had the 40's for about a month. The j40 has a larger head,  especially noticeable in the short irons.  I don't particularly care for the look of the 9 iron or pw but it's not the end of the world.  The j15 is longer due to stronger lofts. The j15 also has a much wider sole which has really impressed me.  From a forgiveness perspective,  I'd say the 15 is more forgiving on fat/thin contact while the j40 is more forgiving horizontally.  They have completely different shafts so I can't give a good comparison there.  My j15 have modus 120.. only club I've ever played with those shafts.  J40 are dgs400 and are a flatter trajectory for me. All in all they're both great irons. I'd guess j15 are easier to find nowadays.  Can't help you on the other 2 unfortunately.

Sold a set last year on the BST.

Add it to the long list of clubs I regret not having in the stable.
It’s the perfect iron for the player that thinks he’s better than he is...needs the forgiveness but can’t bring himself to hit shovels either because of aesthetics or pride....or both.

They do an amazing job of hiding the GI aspects built into them. And no stupid badges or color....and all packed in a b-stone forging.

It really is a legend. Right up there w/ the TM Miura 300’s. PCB’s. Maxfli black dots.....
What others am I missing?

Looks of a players club but performs like a game improvement iron. They are long heel to toe and have a pocket cavity for forgiveness but also have a thin top line, minimal offset and are forged. I havenít found anything better so theyíve been in my bag for a few years now. I still get compliments on them after all these years.

I loved mine but sold them a couple years as I was bored and looking for something new. Probably the best irons I’ve ever owned or at least equal to my P790s I have now. Wish they would do a retro set and add a gap wedge.

Totally agree. They are the best irons of all time. Downsides are no gap wedge and basically no 3 iron (I’ve been looking for one for literally years). It theoretically exists but seems not to actually exist. If anyone reading this has a j40 DPC 3 iron I will pay a Kings ransom for it. There are a million j40 3 irons but no j40 DPC 3
Irons. I’d trade someone my mothballed set of 790s for one TBH.

Bridgestone j40 DPCs... Gotta catch 'em all!

Already updated the sig and will post a picture of a complete set when it comes in.  Thanks so much Rhump!

They've gotta be the best older / cheap iron out there I would think.  I'm a sucker for a thin topline, just a little hint of offset and a lot of forgiveness.

I'm looking forward to a whole season with mine.  With the Recoil 95's in there, these are some of the easiest irons I've ever swung.  As someone mentioned above, the short irons could be a little smaller for my liking, but I'm dealing with it.

Still playing my set of 4-Pw with Steelfiber i95 and added 3 J15 wedges.  Great set of irons that are buttery soft!

Can you comment on the Steelfiber i95's?  I have a set of irons on the way w/ the shafts, I'll try them for myself but also curious as to your thoughts.  I've used S300's for 20 years w/o any real issues...

I'm looking forward to a whole season with mine.  With the Recoil 95's in there, these are some of the easiest irons I've ever swung.  As someone mentioned above, the short irons could be a little smaller for my liking, but I'm dealing with it.

How are your swingweights with the lighter shafts?  I'm still loving these irons except my 5 iron.... I hate my 5 iron... but reality I hate ANY 5 iron I don't know why!

Haha I'm not a 5 iron fan either, something about that iron right in the middle...Love a 3 or 4 iron, absolutely love my 6 iron as well!

Isn't Freddie still bagging this exact set up?

Yes, Couples is still using J40 DPC w/ Steelfibers.  Says a lot about the J40 DPC's, phenomenal irons!!!!

Looks of a players club but performs like a game improvement iron. They are long heel to toe and have a pocket cavity for forgiveness but also have a thin top line, minimal offset and are forged. I haven't found anything better so they've been in my bag for a few years now. I still get compliments on them after all these years.

Absolute beauties!  I have a very nice set in my collection, may break them out this spring...

I loved mine but sold them a couple years as I was bored and looking for something new. Probably the best irons I’ve ever owned or at least equal to my P790s I have now. Wish they would do a retro set and add a gap wedge.

Totally agree. They are the best irons of all time. Downsides are no gap wedge and basically no 3 iron (I’ve been looking for one for literally years). It theoretically exists but seems not to actually exist. If anyone reading this has a j40 DPC 3 iron I will pay a Kings ransom for it. There are a million j40 3 irons but no j40 DPC 3
Irons. I’d trade someone my mothballed set of 790s for one TBH.

I had a brand new J40 DPC and had to dump it due to buying too many other clubs.  Yes, that was probably the biggest mistake, just should've thrown in the basement and forgot I had it, the thing was an absolute LASER at 20 degrees of loft!!!!  And as easy as a 6 iron to hit!

Uggh. I've had a set of J40 DPC/CB heads laying around for some time (pulled the shafts to put into J15CBs). A buddy wanted them so I built them up for him, man the long irons are so easy to hit and buttery soft. Regret already setting in lol

The J15CBs are fantastic as well, just something about the J40s

I've always wanted a set of these.  Hard to find one in good condition with a good price to match that doesn't sell in 2 mins.

It seems like they were D1 up to the 8 iron, D2 for the 9 and PW.  I checked them before I built them, but I don't remember if this is absolutely correct.

I owned a set for a few years and just loved them. I skipped the J15 because I just couldn't deal with the turbo rubber. A good idea I guess, but terrible execution.
I just ran across a new set of the Tour B X-CBP's which is the current version of the DPC that they didn't bring to the US except in that whole bag thing they tried. These came stock with black PVD S Tapers and Multi compounds. I went to the range last night and hit them for the first time and I absolutely love them. I missed my J40 DPCs. Should have never sold them. The profile is very similar however the topline is slightly thinner on the Tour B. Otherwise very forgiving, that same 1020 feel, and plenty of distance.
If anyone is interested in upgrading there are still a couple of sets on the bay. I think the seller was Maplegolf. $399!
