There is an article somewhere that stated Bridgestone is currently selling only the 20 degree version in limited quantities online as a test to see if they have any kind of real market to adequately sell a driving iron in the U.S.  They have an 18 and 23/24 degree version in Japan but apparently didn't know if they could be a contender in the U.S. utility iron market so they decided on this small batch test run.  They claim that if they sold the limited online quantity fairly quick that they may consider seliing the rest of the lineup.  If not, most likely this small run of 20 degree utility irons is all we will see in the U.S.

i would be interested in an 18. i am about to buy a mizuno mp18 hifli 16 degree because i want an lazer beam club.

driver: SRIXON Z745
fairway: NIKE VAPOR 13*
3-4 IRON: MIZZY MP H5 GD AMT X100.
5-PW IRONS: MP5 DG AMT X100
WEDGES; CLEVELAND rtx 3.0 RAW
PUTTER; PING SIGMA G SHEA H
BALL; various, ask me that day.

Can those be found in lefty anywhere? I tried and it's been tough. Would love a nice soft feel out of a UDI.

Had to get the Mrs. to try to hold these so I could get a few pics alongside of a Callaway Apex UT 18 degree and Srixon U65 20 degree.

The Bridgestone looks very similar at address to the Srixon.  Both are bulkier utility irons.  The Bridgestone appears to have a touch less offset and maybe slightly less of the backend is seen at address on the Bridgestone.  As far as the cavity......I kind of like the Bridgestone compared to the less frills look of the Srixon.

Great pictures. The Bridgestone looks great. Is-it the same blade lenght as the Srixon.
I’ve ordered one but i’d like to know if you had the chance to try it ?

It is pretty close to the same blade length as the Srixon......maybe slightly shorter.  The weather didnít cooperate when I was off from work so it will be next week (hopefully) before I can try it.  I work an 84 hour night shift work week every other week.

Any reviews on the X-HI iron yet?  I ordered one this week with the Hzrdrus black 6.0 shaft and 1* strong (19*) from Bridgestone.  I want to use it mainly on tight driving holes and windy days, otherwise I'd use my CBX 5 wood.....

The KBS shaft is awesome. Just got one in my apex 3 hybrid. Love the flight and feel after 2 rounds with it. Got it in a 95x with my swing speed being around 100 mph with that club in my hand.
