    Looks so retro, Great Big Bertha style. Big Bertha 5 (V)?



    I like the color and face, have to see it in person, but from address a little round, like they used to be. But that's why they make multiple models.



    Priced to replace Optiforce or X-Hot? I would love to see a 460 and 440 option in multiple lofts.

    My thoughts exactly. I want it just because it reminds me of my first driver when I started playing. If it performs that's just a bonus!

    I'm definitely going to try it out. Lighter fits my swing. I'm not very aggressive at all. Should work well for me. We hear a release date on it yet?

    I play an Opti 440 right now and love it. Now that I see good clear pictures of this club, my reaction is ... "Meh." This is just a rebaged Legacy Platinum with an adjustable hosel and some Opti 460 paint cues. There is no aerodynamic technology that we can even pretend is at work here for increasing swing speeds. This is a retro cosmetic skin job playing off our nostalgia for the old GBB. It's a PT Cruiser or Ford's neo-Thunderbird. The only head scratcher I have with it is, how will they price it? $199? $249? Will the public pay more than that for nostalgia and paint?

    That looks so much like the original big bertha it's crazy. If the painted it the same gray as the old school one, at first glance I'm not sure I would be able to tell them apart, at least in pictures.

    Wow, they definitely went old school as far as the looks on this one, it really reminds me of the old Big Berthas.

    My reaction when I saw the face and the scoring lines was "wait....I've seen this before."

    Then the closer I looked at the face, particularly the shape, at the bottom, I thought...... "I know you."

    Then the sole...."Come on.......is that really you?" LoL!
