Almost like an attempt to go back to a similar design as the j40 cb, but not as appealing to the eye. Interested in how these feel/perform though.

Agree would be interested to know what they are like- why don't they make the J40's again!

They are really for the JDM market like the Mizuno MP66, but I'm sure there will the usual
niche sellers mentioned on this forum who would sell them!

Tourspecgolf can pre-order for the oct release,( i wonder about the bikini tops ?)
I will probably wait to see if it's going to be available in us.  

Srixon z series now selling in the state, Bridgestone may do the same?

I think we will get the same stuff. That's how the j15 line went and with everything being bridgestone now I would be surprised if they went a different route.

Thank you.  And the ever important follow-up question - does anyone think they will priced like the J15s were, or will they be going to be priced in-line with their competitors?

Looks like the price point on the irons is going to move up a bit. And the woods...rumored pricing I've been given is...well...a bit more than I expected. Looks like they are going to try to move more into the premium market there.

I've got some news about the new lineup for Bridgestone for you guys. I have been in the talks with Bridgestone in regards to a staff deal as well as about what they are going to do with the new lineup and there are several key things I picked up on. First off, the prices are going up, as much as roughly $1,500 for the CB and MB models. Secondly, in order to order a set, you have to be custom fit by one of their own club fitters. Unfortunately, the locations are limited to about 30 sites across the country from what I heard. Third, there will be no retail offerings of this lineup in stores. They are getting more towards the high end, limited business model, thus limiting their production, or should I say over production of irons, which leads to their blowout sales prior to new club releases. They are getting so "custom" that even the staffers are going to have to be fit apparently. It'll be interesting to see how it all unfolds for them. Just thought I'd deliver the news  for you guys and hear your thoughts and feedback.

Absolutely consistent with what I was told; limited availability beginning May 1.

This echos most of what I've been told from m rep and corporate here in GA as well. Extremely limited availability, with not all reps even having access to the line.

One thing that differs from what you've said is that I've heard from 2 Bridgestone sources now is that the Tour B line ISN'T eligible for Bridgestone club pro "staffers" to get in your staff deal, unless you want to pay full wholesale price for them.

I heard that as well, I just didn't mention it because I figured it didn't apply to most of the people on here.

Too bad these aren't more readily available, I own J33, J38, J40 and J15 irons.  But I own too many clubs, I'm not the norm.  I really like them all. The J33's would sell like hot cakes today.
