    Bridgestone J40 Wedge Review Thread

    Check out what arrived for me to review. You've seen some pics and a video introducing the Bridgestone J40 Wedge, now I'll be running these beauties through a full review. We'll find out if there is more to them than just a pretty face. They just arrived today but I had to rush out and get some shots in with them. I'll be updating this thread with some thoughts, pictures and videos as I go.

    First some pictures:











    And a quick video of my first few shots with the 56 degree. I was very impressed with the soft feel and the nice sound they made.



    Here are some longer range pitch shots with the 52 degree and a little something for The Breeze at the end.....hold it....hold it....and twirl!

    Yeah dude, it was 56 degrees when I was out there tonight. We're having a quick 2 day cold spell but then it's going to warm back up again, 70s and low 80s for the weekend.

    Everyone I am telling you, these look so much better in person than they do in these pics. They feel SOOOOOOOO nice so far, I didn't hit any full shots yet but that will come.
