Bridgestone J38 Dual Pocket Cavity Forged Irons Review

Bridgestone J38 Dual Pocket Cavity Forged


Description
Just got these irons, had purchased the new Mizuno JPX800 Pro's. I love Mizuno's and I love forged irons. However, I found the new Mizuno's to be a little heavy, so toward the end of the round I really started hitting the ball a little fat.

In comes the new Bridgestone J38 dual pocket cavity forged irons. These are great irons for me. They are forged, so you get that sweet feel. They are also forgiving enough for anyone in the 0-15 handicap range due to the dual cavity back. However, you would never know they are full cavity backs. The top line is almost as thin as a blade, and the soles are almost as thin as a blade. So the set up is real nice.

We also weighed these irons compared to my Mizuno JPX800 Pro's....... each iron was 10 grams lighter then the Mizunos. Lighter = little faster swing, further distance & not hitting the ball fat as much either. 10 grams is quite a difference, think about the difference between a driver shaft that is a 60 gram vs 70 gram shaft. So especially in an iron that is smaller in size, it's a huge difference. Anyway, despite the light weight of these irons, you can still feel the head, and they have great balance. I have the Project X 5.0 flighted shafts in mine, and they are fine for me. Oh, and they are fairly long, they play about a .5 club longer then my Mizuno's. (Was playing MX200's before I got the new JPX800 pro's).

If you are in between the players iron blades and the game improvement irons, give these a try. They are just as good as the AP1's, Mizuno MX200's, AP2's, etc....... I love them. Good luck, hope this review helps.
