J40 Cavity Back Iron J40 Dual Pocket Cavity Iron
 J40 Cavity Back irons (MPF = 455)   J40 Dual Pocket Cavity irons (MPF = 682)

 

The cavity back is a player's iron, the DPC a GI. On the pro tour:

  • Fred Couples plays DPC 3-PW.
  • Brandt Snedeker plays CB 3-9.
  • Matt Kutchar plays CB 5-9.

 

Bridgestone will mix and match combo sets, DPC on longer irons and CB on shorter irons.

 

This spring, Bridgestone sent me a Test Drive set for Dual Pocket Cavity:

  • a 5i and 9i shafted with TT Dynamic Golf SL R300
  • 5i and 9i shafted with NS Pro 950 GH, R.flex.

 

The R300 were OK, but I really liked the NS Pro shafts better. For both shaft types, the slightly cambered sole really moved through the turf cleanly on iron shots.

 

The Bridgestones were a bit shorter shaft than my Callaway X20 Tours, so I would probably need a slight staff extension if I bought the DPCs. (I ended up reshafting the X20 Tours with NS Pro 8950.GH, a very similar shaft).

 

See if you can find a Bridgestone demo day. Spend a half hour hitting the irons to get a better idea of how they work.

Interesting, the burner plus is rated between those 2... I would have thought what I have would be considered like sgi at least....

That's why I find MPF to be so interesting.
