What we say...

This was actually the favoured club on test for pro James, who liked the compact, low-spin nature of the head and the quality Project X shaft as standard. He loved the powerful feel but insisted this would be one for the better player because it isn’t as forgiving and launches quite low. James V loved the J40 in equal measure, awarding it top marks across the board, even for forgiveness, and insisted everyone should give it a go. He said he was able to hit any shot he wanted and he was surprised because he had never associated the brand with clubs before.

Despite the low-spin head even our slower swingers were impressed with the J40 with Dave R and Chris loving the feel – although it speaks volumes that in performance terms it was better in the hands of our faster swingers and appeared in the top fi ve of no fewer than fi ve of our nine testers for either distance or dispersion.

Bridgestone may be better known for balls, but drivers like this suggest that might not last.

Looks: 4.1 Feel: 3.9
Forgiveness: 3.6
Distance: 5.0
Dispersion: 4.0

The Bridgestone J40 Driver is available in three lofts: 9.5°, 10.5°, 12°
