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.

Bridgestone is really really good at making fantastic golf equipment and really really bad at making lots of people want to buy it.

Fair?

That said, I could definitely see a set of those black wedges in my bag.
