Bridgestone Driver question?

I was looking around on Global Golf at Bridgestone drivers. They have a Bridgestone/Precept J33R 460 club listed for $109.99 and a Bridgestone/Precept J33R (no 460) club listed for $69.99. The only difference I can see is that one has a VS Proto and the other has a NV Green shaft in it. What is the difference between these 2 clubs? Is one a year older? Is there a real noticeable difference in playability? My thinking is to grab the cheaper of the 2 since I plan to reshaft anyway...any thoughts? Thanks!

J33R is 420. J33R 460 is 460. Very, very similar, but the 460 is a little more rounded in shape and a little more forgiving. Both are very low spin.

Have you played the 420 version? Does it sit up square? Is it very unforgiving?

I have only hit a few shots with the 420. It does sit square, possibly a touch open depending on the individual head. I can't really say anything about the forgiveness other than it's less so than the 460. Send a PM to twofast; he has the 420 and can give you some insight.
