What we say...
Darren performed well with the Bridgestone, awarding it high marks in all categories and commenting that it was well-balanced and sat well at address. The absence of an alignment aid caused Chris to say this may be one for the better player.
In terms of forgiveness, it wasn't the easiest to get on with, but the explosive distance was impressive. Bridgestone are better known for their outstanding array of golf balls, but their woods and irons are certainly to be considered when going for a new bit of equipment.
Pro Chris absolutely loved this driver and we struggled to get it out of his hands at the end of the test! He said it was right up there with his favourite drivers among the 36 models, but warned that it was one for the more accomplished player because it wasn’t as forgiving as some. David liked it because it was a lowerspinning driver and gave him a more penetrating flight but this worked against Leon, who struggled for distance with it – even though he liked the looks and the impact sound. John also liked it but felt you had to really give it a whack to get it to go anywhere. All our testers were also taken with the classic looks.
The Bridgestone J38 Driver is available in three different lofts: 8.5°, 9.5°, 10.5°
