Bridgestone X-CB

Our Review:

Sometimes in this category the topline and offset aren't in proportion to the heel and toe length. No such issues here, plus there's a wider sole for smooth turf interaction. Ample mass behind the hitting area produces a pleasant feel at impact, and having three steel-shaft brand options from Nippon, KBS and True Temper is useful. The appearance is throwback, but it's not an old-school club.

    The weight distribution made for a powerful feel.

    I like the thickness of topline. Feedback was appropriate. That said, with the trend of this category, there's forgiveness involved. Even in the long iron, it wasn't difficult to hit it long and flush. Can make guys who don't belong in this category use this club.
  • mid
    Excellent distance control.
  • mid
    The short to mid irons were scoring weapons. Very aggressive through the turf. Penetrating ball flight and straight as an arrow. Weight distribution made them feel powerful through impact.
