What we say...

J715, Bridgestone's first driver in 4 years, relies on a combination of 4 innovative technologies to maximize distance and accuracy off the tee.

F.A.S.T Crown
The Flex Action Speed Technology (F.A.S.T.) crown is extremely thin near the clubface and progressively thickens towards the club head rear to enable the crown to slightly flex at impact creating higher launch and increased repulsion.

Power Milled Face
Patented face milling pattern works to reduce the common ball slippage at impact problem that drivers today encounter. Maintaining the ball's position of impact leads to increased quality compression time that results in reduced spin (200-300 RPMs based on robot testing) for straighter and longer drives.

Spin Flight Control Technology
Movable weights on multiple axes in the heel and center of the clubhead allow users to customize the center of gravity for desired spin and trajectory.

Variable Adjust System
J715 is completely Face and Lie angle adjustable, offering face angle adjustments of up to 1° (closed and opened) and lie angle settings of standard, 1° upright and 2° upright.

James Ridyard, Professional:
Strong-looking head, deep and compact. It might be intimidating for some, but better players will love it. The trajectory and spin were ideal and the adjustment via weight movement is welcome. One of the longest clubs on test for me. Very impressive.

Joel Tadman, Equipment Editor:
The grip and/or shaft feels very thin. I struggled with a miss to the left at times but by opening the face, and taking loft off, it allowed me to increase distance.

    Superb cosmetics. I always felt in control. It might not be large, but there’s lots of tech in the head to aid performance.

    A clean, classic head. It felt springy at impact, like the ball compresses then jumps off quickly without too much spin.
