The Bridgestone J33 Forged Cavity Back Irons are a product of a collaborative effort between Bridgestone Golf engineers and Bridgestone staff players Fred Couples and Stuart Appleby.
For instance, the new irons’ cavity back design helps to push weight to the club head perimeter providing everyone from TOUR pros to mid-handicappers with more forgiveness, added consistency and a higher moment-of-inertia. The J33 Forged Cavity Backs feature a Progressive Muscle Cavity, creating a descending weight concentration through the set from thinnest in the 2-iron to thickest in the pitching wedge. This means that the greatest amount of feel and control are in the short iron scoring clubs.
The Progressive Horizontal Center of Gravity, ranges from closest to the heel in the 2-iron, to closest to the toe in the pitching wedge making long irons easier to square at impact and helping to prevent premature shutting of the face on short iron approach shots. In addition, the new irons also are designed with a tapered sole design ranging from widest in the toe section to thinnest in the heel. This sole design allows the club to travel through any turf condition with ease and great consistency.
“The Progressive Muscle Cavity and Progressive Offset are features that make our new irons great for a variety of players,” said Mike Moxie, Golf Club Marketing Manager, Bridgestone Golf. “By giving players forgiveness where they need it most, without sacrificing feel and precision in the shorter irons, we expect these clubs to be a hit with not only TOUR pros, but also a wide range of amateurs.”
Some other features that give the J33 Forged Cavity Back Irons their easy-to-hit, yet precise performance are the following:
* A progressive offset design inspires confidence at address.
* The Blunted Leading Edge reduces digging and skipping making the clubs more playable from a variety of lies.
* Similar to the rest of the J33 family of irons, the Forged 1020 Mild Carbon Steel construction provides a high degree of feel and playability.
