BRIDGESTONE ANNOUNCES J15F FAIRWAY WOODS AND J15HY HYBRIDS "DESIGNED TO PERFORM"
 
It looks like the PGA Merchandise Show is the place to be if you have even a passing interest in Bridgestone Golf! Bridgestone Golf are adding the J15F and J15HY to the recent release of the J715 driver - to be unveiled at the 2015 PGA Merchandise Show.
 
The J15F Fairway Woods and J15HY Hybrids reportedly promise optimized ball flight and more distance from a variety of lies.
 
“The R&D team at Bridgestone takes great pride in offering clubs with true innovation,” said Josh Kinchen, Golf Clubs and Accessories Marketing Manger, Bridgestone Golf, Inc.
 
“We want consumers to know that when Bridgestone introduces a new product to the market, that product is bringing something unique and worthwhile to the industry. Our new fairway woods and hybrids are no exception to that rule, featuring a multitude of technologies that allow these critical clubs to play the role they are intended to play – high launching distance with soft landings and the ability to be played from anywhere including the tee, fairway, rough and even greenside."
 
The improved distance afforded in the J15F Fairway Woods and the J15HY Hybrids can be attributed to several key technologies:
 

1. F.A.S.T Crown

  • The Flex Action Speed Technology (F.A.S.T.) crown comprised of High Strength AM355 Maraging Steel is incredibly thin near the clubface and progressively thickens towards the clubhead rear. This proprietary technology enables the crown Bridgestone Introduces J15F Fairway Wood and J15HY Hybrid to slightly flex at impact creating higher launch angles and extreme ball velocities through increased spring like effect. 

2. Hyper Stainless 455 Steel Face

  • The clubfaces of both the fairway woods and hybrids are made from Hyper Stainless455 Steel, which allows for the thinnest face ever by Bridgestone at 1.8mm for maximum repulsion within conforming rules.

3. Weighted Port Technology 

  • An adjustable weight system in the sole of the fairway woods and hybrids allows the player to influence desired spin and trajectory for maximum distance and control. 

  • The clubfaces of both the fairway woods and hybrids are made from Hyper Stainless 455 Steel, which allows for the thinnest face ever by Bridgestone at 1.8mm for maximum repulsion within conforming rules. 

Versatility:
The versatility in both Fairway and Hybrid models results from two key design modifications:

1. Reduced Heel Profile (less drag, in all lies) 

2. Sole Profile (rear sole of the club has been lowered to eliminating digging)

Lefties Rejoice!
As mentioned above, LH versions will be available - but, there's a catch - you'll have to wait until April 1, 2015 ... Don't worry - I'm assured this is not an April Fools joke ;)
 
The clubs are not up on the website yet, but you should be able to see them on www.bridgestonegolf.com at some point in the near future.

Me too.  But they need to offer a 25H and get rid of the yellow grip...unless you're a Duck of course.
