The Verdict: Bridgestone has stepped up its game in irons, and this club is a nice advancement. The irons have a two-piece, forged construction with a polymer rubber filling in the back cavity to improve feel. The hero, however, is hidden from view. Bridgestone’s designers made the junction of the face and sole thinner than the surrounding areas. Called the “power slit,” it’s designed to act as a hinge at impact for high launch and more initial ball speed.
