Bridgestone J15 CB Irons

Bridgestone J15 CB Irons

There are four different iron models available in the Bridgestone’s J15 line. This review is for the CB irons which look almost like blades, but have more forgiveness aimed at your lower handicap players..

Technology (100/ 100)

The J15 CB irons are made from premium forged 1020 carbon steel to provide the player with an incredible feel. The compact head provides tour control and shot shaping workability. The J15 CB has a wide sure contact sole to ensure consistent contact and turf interaction, while offering additional forgiveness. Like the J15 MB the CB has a flatter, more narrow sole but the sole is slightly wider than a blade allowing the player more control.

Available in 3-PW.

Looks (99/ 100)   

The J15 CB is a very good looking iron. It was very hard for me to decide on the MB or CB when I purchased my Bridgestone irons. The CB looks slightly more forgiving with a slightly larger head than the MB. The top line is still nice and thin to look at, almost looking like a blade, but giving a little more comfort. The irons are very clean and shiny.

Performance (98/ 100)  

I tried The J15 CB 7 iron with the True Temper Dynamic Gold S300 shaft.

Bridgestone J15 CB 7 Iron

Launch Angle: 21.0 degrees

Spin Rate: 5434 rpm

Carry Distance: 175 yds

Total Distance: 184 yds

I carried the ball 175 yards for a total of 184 yards. These irons carried a pretty similar number than my current MB irons, maybe I got a couple of yards more with the CB. They are not really designed to improve distance, but give plenty of forgiveness and control.

I loved that on mis-hits I got more out of the irons than my current MB, but luckily I don’t miss hit too many shots, so I sacrifice that to keep the MB in my bag. The irons still have an incredibly soft forged feel, much like a blade. The launch is 21 degrees, with a spin rate of 5434 rpm. This is a little higher and spinier than my current irons, but I didn’t see drastic changes where it would affect the performance.

Final Thoughts (overall) (99/ 100)

I recommend these irons for anybody that can break 80. Sorry if you haven’t don’t come back looking until you can. The irons offer a lot of control and forgiveness for a player iron. Very good looking club. Sometimes I still wish I chose these irons over my MB’s. They are worth the investment.
