Bridgestone J38 460 Driver

From Golf Magazine (ClubTest, February 2010)

Category: Tour Drivers
We tested: 9.5° with Fujikura Motore F1 graphite shaft
Company line: "We've incorporated a new technology into the clubhead design to make the sole more rigid, which helps reduce spin rates and promotes a higher launch. The club also features a new clubface design intended to provide more forgiveness across the entire hitting area."

OUR TESTERS SAY:
PROS: The medium trajectory is useful in windy conditions and provides plenty of roll on solid hits; a good anti-hook club that faster swingers will appreciate; the Fujikura Motore shaft is noted for its stability; the throwback "crack of the bat" sound provides useful feedback, and the black head has an understated look.

CONS: Below-average directional forgiveness; regular-flex shaft wasn't available for testing, stiff flex profile was a bit much for some testers; seems to require lots of head speed to optimize trajectory and distance; shaft graphics are distracting.
