Bridgestone J15 Cast Irons

Published

on

Bridgestone has carved its niche among better golfers with its forged irons, but its latest model expands the company’s reach to golfers who need more forgiveness and distance from an iron. The company’s new J15 Cast irons are the longest, most-forgiving option in Bridgestone’s J15 iron family.

Remember F.A.S.T. (Flex Action Speed Technology) that was used in Bridgestone’s recently released J15 460 driver? The J15 Cast irons use the same technology.

[quote_box_center]”Through extensive testing, we’ve found that the same Flex Action Speed Technology that is used in our new driver and fairway woods also lends itself quite well to a game-enhancement iron,” says Josh Kinchen, Bridgestone’s golf clubs and accessories marketing manager. [/quote_box_center]

The J15 Cast iron uses an undercut, full-face channel construction to boost ball speed across the face. The channel also increases moment of inertia (MOI), a measure of forgiveness, to produce more consistent ball speeds.

To minimize digging and turf resistance, the J15 Cast irons are designed with wide, round soles and a low center of gravity (CG) to help golfers launch their iron shots higher.

In order from left-to-right: J15 MB, CB, DF, DPF and Cast. The Cast model has the widest, roundest sole.

The J15 Cast irons have a thicker top line and increased offset compared to Bridgestone’s four forged iron models, which helps golfers release the face and reduce their slice.

They’re offered in 4-PW and come stock with Nippon N.S. Pro 950GH shafts and custom yellow Golf Pride Tour Velvet grips.

The J15 Cast irons will sell for $699 (5-AW, RH only) and will be available on April 1, 2015.

    I still prefer the J40 CB and DPC which offered the Project X flighted shaft as stock ones. They feel and performance really nice to me.

    I like the look of these…never thought about trying Bridgestone clubs out. I am ~16hcp and their irons were never in my radar for that reason. I would like to try my g20’s out against them.

      i came across Bridgestone by my budget restrictions. Forged clubs without premium price. Here in Australia they are not popular – mainly because no one knows the clubs. I tried my 1st J36 – then J38 DPC… you kinda feel like whats so special about them… and you try to experiment… so i tried Mizuno… only to get rid of them after few months to go back to J38 CB… next one will be again DPF as it best helps my game. I hit 4i 196yrds
