J715 Driver Face
J15F Fairway wood
J15 HY Hybrid
Matt Kuchar, Brandt Snedeker and Fred Couples have amassed over £20m/ $30m thanks to Bridgestone technology and with the launch of the J715 & J815 Drivers, J15F Fairway Woods and J15H Hybrids, 'You can now benefit from some of that Tour -proven distance, feel and accuracy' claim Bridgestone golf.
These premium clubs are designed to be custom-fitted and adjusted to meet the needs of each individual player. There are several key technologies and modifications used in the new clubs, which are designed to increase ball velocity, produce higher launch angles and improve versatility.
The J715 460 Driver is the first to be released by Bridgestone since 2010, it incorporates four new technologies designed to maximise distance and accuracy from the tee using adjustable loft and lie settings.
The J815 Driver is another adjustable model suited to golfers looking for more solid ball-striking from the tee. As with the J715 driver, it incorporates Power Slit Technology for greater ball velocity and a strong trajectory, but the J815 driver has a more rigid sole design helping it produce a higher ball flight by generating a 10% lower spin rate, which helps get the ball airborne and flying further. The J815 comes with a larger head shape and is designed to boost confidence at address.
Price and options:
Both drivers come in 9.5° and 10.5° loft options and are fitted with a Mitsubishi Fubuki ZT shaft and custom yellow Golf Pride® Tour Velvet grip as standard. Available from selected customer fit centres from March, the J715 and J815 drivers will each have a RRP of £349.99
“Bridgestone Golf drivers have always had a strong reputation and the J715 and J815 models are without question the best drivers we’ve ever made,” said Steve Kettlewell, MD of Bridgestone Golf UK& Ireland. “They’re in keeping with the Bridgestone brand philosophy of launching new products only when there is genuine innovation available to benefit a golfer’s game and this also applies to the latest line of fairway woods and hybrids.”
Bridgestone J15F Fairway Woods and J15 HY Hybrids
Both the new J15F Fairway Woods and J15 HY Hybrids benefit from design innovations that optimise ball flight and add greater distance from various lies. The improved distance and versatility attributed to the clubs can be found in the following key technologies and modifications they share:
1. The proprietary FAST Crown technology composed of high strength AM355 Maraging steel that is exceptionally thin near the clubface and thickens progressively towards the back of the club head. The resulting flex at impact creates a higher launch angle and a spring-like effect.
2. The Hyper Stainless 455 SteelFace used to manufacture the clubfaces of both the fairway woods and the hybrids is the thinnest face ever produced by Bridgestone Golf.
3. An adjustable Weight Port Technology in the sole of both clubs allows the golfer to influence the level of spin and trajectory for maximum distance and control.
4. A reduced heel profile is delivered by removing material from the heel, which gives the club less drag in all lies for greater versatility. The back sole of the club has been lowered to streamline the design and create a sweeping action when interacting with the playing surface and enhancing playability from any lie.
Price and options:
The J15 Fairway Woods will be available from selected custom fit centres from March in 13.5°, 15° and 18° loft options and come with the standard Fubuki Z Fairway shaft and custom yellow Golf Pride® Tour Velvet grip at a £199 RRP.
The J15 Hybrid comes in 17°, 19°, 21° and 23° loft options with the same shaft and grip as the fairway woods at a RRP of £159.
