OUR TAKE

Bridgestone has always been known for its “players” sticks, most notably its top-notch forged irons, so a beautiful milled wedge is no surprise here. What will blow you away is the XW’s impressive versatility, performance and buttery feel.

FITTER COMMENTS

“A nice selection of loft/bounce combinations makes it a relatively easy club to fit, although some wider-sole and higher-bounce models would be handy, especially for higher-handicaps.”
