Bridgestone Golf 2012 PGA Show Videos and Pics!
I took the Bridgestone ball challenge at the demo day. For me, at least, the Bridgestone B-330S performed about the same as the Pro V1x. The launch monitor I was on was cranked up about 5-6 mph on its clubhead speed, so that my calculated distance was about 10 yards too long, but overall it was a good experience. In a way, I was glad it didn't show I needed to change balls, as I don't find too many B-330S balls in the woods, but I find a lot of Pro V1's.
Looks like a unique sole grind on the irons - 4 way?
Have always enjoyed the grind on the Bridgestone Wedges - seems to work from any lie and conditions and for most swings -- from my experience, they fit pickers and natural slider-driver types. Don't know about aggressive drivers, though. I wasn't one - didn't try to be too aggressive until recently.
Nice clubs - heard the part about them using "real" shafts and not "designed for" shafts. And the part about no extra up charge on other shafts in a custom order --- interesting.
Here's the last Bridgestone video. Got to hit all the irons, they are great. Love the satin finish and they are very easy to hit, easy to launch. Driver felt hot as well, definitely the most underrated company in terms of equipment. The local retailers in San Diego don't carry Bridgestone so I was looking forward to spending some time with the irons and driver. The J40 is one of the top forged irons out there imo,
Very happy I got to do the ball fitting (that's me in the video above in the white shirt). I've known about Bridgestone's fitting process but was great to experience it in person. Can't wait to take these balls out on the course and see for myself. Thanks to all the Bridgestone people for taking the time to show Erik and I around and educate us on all the new products.
