New press release from Bridgestone...




Bridgestone's Best Performing Wedges Combine Unique Heel Side Shape with Groove Technology for Ultimate Spin Performance from any Lie



Covington, Ga. — Bridgestone Golf, the #1 ball-fitter in golf and a recognized industry innovator, will reveal its new J15 Forged Wedges at the 2015 PGA Merchandise Show.  The J15 Forged Wedges rely on a combination of 3 innovative technologies to ensure the ultimate in spin and versatility.


“Bridgestone is proud of the wedges that we have put into the market over the years, but we know based on our extensive R&D testing that our new J15 Forged line offer best in class spin and versatility,” said Josh Kinchen, Golf Clubs and Accessories Marketing Manager, Bridgestone Golf, Inc. “Feel and spin control have been vastly improved in going from our previous cast wedges to the new J15 Forged line.  It speaks to our commitment to provide superior performing clubs to our loyal customers.”


The unmatched spin and versatility in the J15 Forged Wedges is achieved through 3 key technologies:


1.     Sure Contact Sole

·      The Sure Contact Sole design of the J15 Forged Wedges offers unique heel side shaping that features a reduced profile and ensures forgiving accuracy from any lie on the course.  Unlike other companies who hand grind the crucial heel side of the sole, Bridgestone's unique forging process ensures this area is never touched by hand ensuring consistency.




2.     Pro Groove Design

·      Bridgestone engineers focused their groove efforts on increasing the inner groove area for the J15 Forged Wedges, offering unmatched ability to channel dirt, water and debris away from the face, increasing spin and ensuring consistent ball to face contact from all lies.


3.     Durable Heat Treatment

·      The J15 Forged Wedges have heat-treated faces for enhanced durability and longer club life. The unique heating process reinforces the face without compromising club feel or performance.

The J15 Forged Wedges will feature a street price of $119 and will available in both Right and Left Hand* versions at retail on February 1, 2015.


*Left Hand versions available in 52 and 58-degree lofts, black oxide finish only and not available until April 1, 2015.

Looks like the MP-T5 from Mizuno. I liked the one set of Bridgestone wedges I used when I was on staff with them a while ago.
