2008 Iron Buyer's Guide

When it comes to buying a new set of irons, be sure to pick a set that?s made for your game and swing. The right set of irons will always perform better than a set that?s not properly fitted to your needs.

Bridgestone J36 Cavity Back
Key Feature: The smooth, forged feel of the new J36 CBs is complemented with a
tapered sole design, trailing edge relief and a progressive cavity that maximizes performance.
What We Like: The Rifle Project X steel shafts feel as if they were made for these irons. Also, if players want to mix in the new J36 Blades or J36 Pocket cavity irons, it’s a cinch.
Who It’s For: Mid- to low-handicappers who want forgiveness with shotmaking options.
Clubhead: Mild carbon steel • Clubface: Same Design: Forged cavity back • Custom Options: Yes • Clubs: 3-PW • Shafts: Rifle Project X steel (X, S, R)

Bridgestone J36 Pocket Cavity
Key Feature: The Pocket Cavity design cuts mass out from behind the clubface for a higher MOI and added forgiveness.
What We Like: Designed to complement the J36 Blade/Cavity Back or to stand alone as a complete set, the J36 Pocket Cavity is a true work of art.
Who It’s For: Better players who want game-improvement irons that, well, look nothing like game-improvement irons.
Clubhead: Mild carbon steel • Clubface: Same Design: Forged pocket cavity-back • Custom Options: Yes • Clubs: 3-PW • Shafts: Rifle Project X steel (X, S, R)
