Headweight possibly an issue. You could be sure to put in graphite shafts to keep overall club weight down and play with different grip weights to play around with swing weight numbers (if you even care about swing weight).
J15DF (can't find CB) - http://ralphmaltby.c...bridgestone/††- 6-iron head is 253g
USKG - http://www.uskidsgol...calSpecs.pdf††- 6-iron head is 234g (54") or 244g (57", 60" and 63") for TS-series
Bottom line is it is a bunch of experimentation. You could end up spending more then getting a properly built set from USKG for this age of kid. USKG did spend a great amount of time, energy, engineering and money to make clubs that do well by nearly all accounts (exceptions granted). Perhaps just save the J15CB's for when he turns 12-13-14 years old.

Before I did anything, I would see if there were any kids your child's age that had adult irons and try those first. You don't want to spend a bunch of money for nothing. My daughter is 11 and I got her the Cobra F8 irons with recoil shafts in them. She hits them fine now but there was an adjustment phase because of the weight. I recently had a friend call me about getting clubs for his daughter. I brought them out to the range and she hit my daughter's irons as well as the US Kids TS3 57" irons with steel shafts. It was obvious right away that she hit the TS3 irons much better. I would definitely try those TS3 irons with the steel shafts before I did anything.

For a 10 year old or really anyone the first question you need to ask is how strong are they and how much have they played. For an average 10 year old a junior set is usually a good bet. US Kids sets are cheap and readily available so I would try those first. If your kid is strong and can really swing the club go to demo days and have them try to make up a set.
The cheapest option is almost always sell your clubs and buy what fits. It's easily $200 for good shafts that actually fit and that is if you do it yourself. If you get someone else to do it you might as well buy a new set. Also if you don't want the driver and woods for US kids it easy to just order the irons to save some money. The new TS3 US kids has a decent driver and irons and I would not buy an OEM driver unless the kids was driving more then 175 with it. See way too many people spend tons of money on OEM stuff for younger kids that isn't a big deal anymore.

We have the Nippon NS Pro 950GH in his wedges and he loves them. Was thinking about maybe trying the Nippon Zelos 8.
