James, Larkspur, CA Bridgestone Golf Fan Mail. I switched to the e6 a month ago because I was playing in a tournament and didn't want to spend all the money on ProV1x's. I played some great golf, and just today I shot the round of my life - one over par with an ACE! I'm never going to play another golf ball again haha!!

Colleen, Sun Lakes, AZ Bridgestone Golf Fan Mail. On April 15, 2014, when I played in our Member/Guest Tournament, nobody wanted to lead off on hole #3, which is a par 3 and was playing 95 yards to the hole. I stepped up with a 9 iron and said I would see what kind of a leader I could be. I hit the ball nice and crisp and it landed 3 feet from the pin and went straight in the hole! I've been using the Bridgestone Lady Precept for the last 2 months and I love them!

Gene, New Jersey True Balance Putters Product Comment. I tried the True Balance putter last week at the PGA store, it felt so different and easy to swing for distance control and direction, you could feel the head hit the ball. Today I had to go back and buy it!! I can't wait to try it out this weekend!!

Skylar, Grand Rapids, MI True Balance Putters Product Comment. I hit one today at a demo day at a local golf shop. It felt AMAZING! I went there to buy a new driver and almost left with a new putter instead. I'm sure I won't make it through the first couple months of the season without picking one up.

New J40™ Wedges Offer Golfers Precision Performance and Optimized Spin

COVINGTON, GA — Bridgestone Golf announced today the launch of its new J40 wedges. The new wedges will be available in October 2011 at golf specialty stores and on-course retailers nationwide, coinciding with the release of new J40 woods, irons and hybrids. Featuring Variable Bounce Technology, standard Dynamic Gold™ Spinner shafts and two performance finishes, the J40 wedges deliver in form and function on the course.

Each J40 wedge utilizes Bridgestone's Variable Bounce Technology in the sole for precise shot execution from a variety of turf conditions. In addition, all wedges come standard with Tour-proven Dynamic Gold™ Spinner shafts for increased spin performance.

The Bridgestone J40 Wedges feature:

  • a compact head size for optimized shot precision
  • increased surface roughness from machine milling for maximum spin among conforming grooves
  • 8620 soft mild carbon steel head construction for optimum feel around the greens

"The machine milled grooves, Variable Bounce Technology and addition of the Dynamic Gold™ Spinner shaft ensure our new wedges offer optimum spin, while conforming to current USGA guidelines," said Corey Consuegra, Golf Club Marketing Manager - Bridgestone Golf, Inc.

J40 wedges are offered in two performance finishes to complement the clubs' finely crafted machine-milled look. The Black Oxide finish provides a glare-reducing appearance at address and the timeworn rusting preferred by many professional and amateur golfers. The J40 Satin Chrome finish features a traditional, bright, rust-resistant finish.

"The J40 Wedges offer a design that will appeal to golf equipment purists, with a clean, classic look and consistently precise performance," said Consuegra. "With the choice of Black Oxide or Satin Chrome, golfers can feel confident over shots with a club that suits their eye."

The J40 Wedges are available in 52, 54, 56, 58 and 60 degrees of loft and feature a street price of $109 per wedge. The line will be available in October 2011 at golf specialty stores and on-course retailers nationwide.
