It's a tough job but somebody's gotta do it. As GOLF Magazine's chief equipment geek, I get to preview the latest and greatest gear months before its release date. It even means a friendly round, from time to time, with the brain trust behind the new toys.
This week, I teed it up with the Bridgestone folks in anticipation of their GC Series iron debut [in shops mid-September]. Gravity Chamber (GC) irons come in two flavors: GC.Mid and GC.OS. In both models, weight is removed from a "gravity chamber" behind the center of the face. The savings (30 grams) is transferred to a pair of "gravity disks" in the heel and toe.
