A new Bridge between distance and accuracy

​They say that good things come to those who wait and in the four years since Bridgestone last launched a driver, they have developed a new J15 range that incorporate four new technologies.

 It’s clear that a lot of time and effort has gone into making the J15 range as good as possible.

The J715 460 driver boasts a new crown, a new face, movable weights and adjustable loft and lie settings. The goal of course is to maximise distance and accuracy for every player.

The Flex Action Speed Technology (F.A.S.T.) in the crown allows the crown to flex at impact. The crown is thinner near the clubface and progressively thickens towards the rear of the clubhead, which allows for a higher launch angle and greater repulsion. The club face has a milling pattern that reduces ball slippage at impact. By maintaining the ball’s position of impact, there is increased quality compression time and that results in reduced spin.

“We want consumers to know that when we introduce a new club, it will always offer real tangible performance benefits,” said Josh Kinchen, Golf Bridgestone’s Clubs and Accessories Marketing Manager.

The option to customise your ball flight is made possible by the addition of movable weights that operate on two different axes. The centre of gravity (CG) can be moved from heel to toe and forward or back. The loft and lie can be altered by the variable adjust system. The face angle be altered by one degree while the lie angle be altered by two degrees. Bridgestone have also designed a J815 driver, which generates less spin and has a more rigid sole.

Both drivers retail at €437.​
