A players driver for sure… The Birdgestone J33R Driver is a 460cc driver that has morphed into a beauty to behold. A 6-4 titanium construction, ultra thin crown wall construction, Elastomer compound insert absorbs excess vibration for better feel, and Tungsten weight in the sole lowers the CG for low spin, all combines for a stellar driver.

Bridgestone was slow to move to a 460cc head, but finally folded under some pressure. The J33R is definitely not for the high handicapper.

The Bridgeston J33 offers a neutral head for the low handicapper to “work the ball” with ease.

Actual Player Feedback-

“best driver I have ever tried”

“Great ‘solid’ feeling driver for checking out your swing”

“pretty solid mid-low cappers driver”

“Highly recommend”


Solid driver for a low to mid handicapper. Penetrating ball flight makes this driver perfect for the higher speed swinger looking to be able to work the ball in either direction. The Aldila VS Proto stock shaft comes in R/S/X Flexes.


Well the fact this driver is not for the higher handicapper makes this out of reach for most golfers, the majority of golfers should probably look elsewhere. In addition, many have complained of the sound of the J33R, but this is open for interpretation.

Overall Rating-

Simply put, the Bridgestone J33R driver is a great driver in the right hands.
