I'm sure they're great wedges, but something about them just looks off. Maybe it's the shape.

Kind of looks like a spin off the old J33's. Not just the middle section but the longer hosel as well. I played the J33 blades for a season and the hosel was so much longer than say the Titleist 681's or the TM Rac mb's of that time period. Personally when it comes to wedges I still can'tfind anything I personally play better than the Titleist Vokey 250 series. Good thing I have many back ups.

Good job Bridgestone on high quality clubs; however, i am not sure every golfers will like the tear drop design!

You know what you are right, they do kinda look like the J33 Forged Wedges.  I had a set in Black Oxide and I really liked them.

I would def cop these if I wasn't so in love with MD2TG's and I already have a new Black Oxide backup set .....

Bought a J15 56* (Black) off ebay last year to try it out. Bought it new for $59. One of the best wedges I've played. sold my Vokeys. Put a s400 in it. found out that the spinner wasn't so bad after all. A little soft on full shots. I go through about 3 wedges a year. Bridgestone is very good product!

I like the JGR HF2 iron.  They’ve been out in Japan along with the HF1.  I’m hoping the HF2 comes to the U.S.
