Bridgestone Precept J40 Black Oxide Wedge Review

Overview -

The Bridgestone Precept J40 Black Oxide Wedge incorporates numerous new technologies resulting in one of the most versatile wedges ever produced. Each J40 wedge has variable bounce technology that creates low bounce areas at the toe and heel. The head is made from an incredibly soft 8620 mild carbon steel for unmatched levels of of feel, and the face is machine milled which increases surface roughness resulting in increased spin. The True Temper Dynamic Gold Spinner Shaft is a specially designed wedge shaft that allows this conforming-groove wedge to produce more spin than older non-conforming wedges.

Reviews from the Trenches -

“Moves smoothly through the turf with a nice feel. It’s almost like you didn’t feel the ball coming off the face.”
