Same old tired stuff from Bridgestone. I say that because I'm frustrated, not because I'm a BStone hater. The B330 and B330s is, IMO, the only true competition the Pro V1 and Pro V1x have. While the balls are great they just don't seem to care about building clubs. Yes, the J40 irons are nice and have plenty of tech, love 'em. However, the woods have been complete and utter garbage since the J33 line.

Hey BStone...it's 2013, the bonded woods game is over!!

I agree Aces....Classic and well made irons and wedges but they need a little love with the woods.

Funny how some people ignore clubs that simply perform and instead desire some new-fangled, technical, adjustable interchangable thingy.  Sadly, Bridgestone will probably follow suit any day now... those Japanese are in love with gimmicks.

I have J40's and love them.  No so with their driver and fairway woods, I'm using Callaways.

I get that Bridgestone makes a good product that performs very well, but in this day and age they really need to re-brand themselves... their woods and irons are very boring IMO, and there's something about that "B" logo that just doesn't look right on a golf club.  I guess I have trouble separating it from the tires they make... when I see that "B" I think tires, which makes me think cars, which makes me think NASCAR, which makes me think redneck (no offense) and in my mind I do not associate Golf with redneck... it's just a branding issue I think... but it matters b/c it sells clubs.

Funny you should mention NASCAR since it seems that the other OEMs are designing clubs that rival the paint jobs on some of the NASCAR cars.

I don’t know much about Bridgestone clubs, though I have liked their balls since the Precept EV Extra Spin and EV Extra Distance.  Anyone know if the new changes to the e-Series golf balls (four fewer dimples) will carry over this year to the Tour B330 series?  If it is like with dual dimples, the new dimple pattern will show up next year (2014).

These are certainly great looking clubs. But it just seems like they don't make irons and woods for mere mortals. You have to have a little game to hit these.

I think the DPC's are pretty forgiving. On par with the i20's. Heck I am not good and I was hitting the J40CB 3I decently. I think they look more playerish than they are. There is some forgiveness in there

Anyone have a clue as to what Bridgestone meant with their customization tweet? I've seen no news about it and it was supposed to be unveiled at the PGA Show. It can't be just the wedge shafts can it?
