Bridgestone J33 Forged Combo Irons

10 posts in this topic

I've been looking at these irons lately, and demoed the 6 iron that my local pro shop has, and haven't found one thing wrong with the club. I would like to know if anyone else has the whole set, and how they hit? The 6 iron was going much straighter, and maybe a little bit longer than my Slingshot.

Thanks!

I've played a few rounds with the J33 combo set. The irons had DGS300 shafts and Iomic grips. I really liked the weight of the club and how solid it felt. The ball also penetrates into the wind instead of getting tossed upwards. My vote is taht you get them!

Yea I've heard a lot of good things about them. It's really between the burner irons or the bridgestone j33 combos, and I'm leaning towards the J33's.

very nice clubs
havent hit them, but in a post somewhere here, someone asked what the nicest looking clubs were.....i put the Bridgetone's in there
i think they are sweet dude

if you can hit em, snap em up
the "combo" idea (cavaties/blades) is the smartest thing i have ever heard of

let us know how you make out and if you get em

I've hit the new funky looking Burner irons and I found the J33's to feelt much more "solid" at impact.

You'll really like the J33's. If I hadn't had my heart set on my Mizzzy's I would've bought a barely used set of J33 combos for, well, less. Great feel, great look. Can't go wrong with'em, IMO.

Enjoy'em, man.

How do these compare to the MP-57s? I was so far set on either getting the 57s or some Mac PCB Tours, but I am now intrigued by the J33s.

    • This is a totally reasonable approach.  Thought I'd throw in my method for this as another option. I hold the club sticking straight away from belt buckle or so, parallel to the ground, with my right hand.  Then, with my hand splayed out a bit (not crazy stretch or anything, but not fingers touching) and flat, I choose an angle to hold my left hand, place the handle in the "right" position, so resting on the middle section of my pointer finger, resting on or a touch towards the wrist from the bottom knuckle of the pinkie finger.  Then wrap the fingers onto the handle, then roll the hand towards the handle to a comfortable spot. For me this method gives a consistent grip, and I can control strong/weak just by the angle of my left hand before I place the handle.  If my left hand plane is perpendicular to the ground, I'll get a super strong grip, too strong.  With the left hand plane parallel to the ground, I'll get a weak grip, probably too weak, though for me I don't think it ends up as overly weak as the perpendicular way ends up over strong. If I have time tonight maybe I'll take some pics to make this clearer... I've always felt this way too, but I've often wondered if more knowledgable players or instructors also liked to see the full speed clips to get a feel for the dynamics of the swing.  Like, maybe at full speed you can get a feel for the dynamics and athletic motions a player is trying to use that a player is trying to use that wouldn't be obvious at slow speed.  Maybe that might help an instructor decide which things are a priority, or which path or feel or drill towards fixing something is most likely to succeed with that player? I suppose you're saying that's not true, at least not for you?  Like, you get all of that from the slo-mo?  Or that might be useful for an instructor of tour players but the shit we've all got wrong with our swings is so basic that it's not needed?  Something else?
    • I handed out a bunch of likes in this here thread. Ready golf or GTFO!! 
    • noted. and, thank you.  
    • ...and I can change from suit and tie to full-on golf attire in 10 minutes flat, while doing 50 mph!  
    • Like I said… your tempo is probably too slow if you can't get a 30-footer to the hole on slow greens. You're not hitting a lot of greens, so even two- and three-putting that often is not a great sign. You're not often putting from 40 feet away like some people who hit more greens. You're putting after a chip or a pitch shot more often, and those tend to be shorter putts. Start a Member Swing topic or post video of yourself hitting long putts to it if you have one already.
