    Yeah seriously they caught my eye as I was doing a BB search ('cause you can never have too many backup BB sets). It's such a masterpiece blade design by Founders Club and then the icing on the cake is the Miura forging. I've seen and knew about Miura forged Nicklaus Muirfields but this was the first time I've seen Founders Club blades forged by Miura. So pretty!

    Just got done playing nine with my Retro TBs. It was soggy out, fairways were soft and winds were 15-20mph. Most memorable shot was coming in on #9. My approach was 150 yds out into a right to left headwind. I hit a nice 4i cut and landed it at the pin leaving a 20 footer back for birdie. Made it and managed a 42 somehow.



    I hit several really nice and awesome feeling shots with the

    Retros. But still they are just a tad below my BBs. Besides the head size, the shafts are original Rifle 5.0s on the Retros and my BB sets have Nippon NS Pro 950 and 850gh shafts. This could also be part of the difference.



    Regardless, my next round is definitely going to be with my Cal Hotties BB set. I got the kangaroo grips on them now. They are a really nice soft leather. Can't wait to try them.

    That's only what you say just before you buy a set.



    Then you forget all that after hitting and owning it.



    In my experience, the BBs are totally worth every penny just because you cannot find another iron out there that performs and feels so well. And also made with such good quality.



    LOL feel free to make me an offer on my Retro TBs set, aka my 'Dirty Girls'. I sell to friends cheep! I'm on the fence about selling them, though. (And FWIW for a few beers I will also "rent" them out to friends that have to play "forgiving" crap.)

    Got an extra set of BB heads you wanna sell? haha



    Pretty tough to get your hands on these not built already. I want my local miura fitter to fit me and build them, but he can't get any heads. There's a set of original BB heads for sale here on the forum, but the 4i is a bit damaged, which I'm not thrilled about.

    LOL sorry, bro. I don't have any and if I did I would hoard them for myself. To quote Gollum, "MY PRECIOUS!!!"



    But LOL if you are nice maybe rebby will let you into his basement for one of the sets he bought and forgot.



    FYI I was checking for a friend with my Miura dealer and he said BB heads inventory is low, BUT he said he is getting heads again by late April. From what I understand from him, the BB line is still in production by Miura but it is now a 'limited edition' series which means it isn't stocked and made at the same frequency as standard offerings. Eventually your fitter should be able to get some.



    And yeah I see more used sets on eBay than heads only.

    Haha I pm'd rebby last week, but he hasn't gotten back to me yet. Maybe I'll get lucky when he gets around to checking his messages.

    One of the reasons I got my **** Stars set was because at the time Miura was being bought and I got scurred that they might stop making the BB.



    But hopefully they will keep making them even as a limited edition line. I think as long as there is a steady demand, they will keep the line.



    I'll shed a tear for Miura-san if they ever become obsolete.

    You were always a Snake Eyes Smith and Wesson kinda blade guy anyway.



    In other news, I just got back from hitting balls at the range today with my Cal Hotties. And I must say the Gripmaster kangaroo leather stitchbacks are awesome. They have made a huge difference in feel as compared to the NO1 silastomer grips on them before. The way the leather more naturally molds against my hands and how it damps the feel of a miss hit is just fantastic. And then the solid 'thwack' feel of a pure strike is not lost one bit with leather either. I swear, whenever I hit a really pure shot with either of my BB sets, the feel of it puts a big grin on my face and sometimes I even let out a small giggle. And it never gets old.

    I'd reccomend anyone looking for heads message kaaayelll. He has been great to deal with for me and last I saw had a couple sets of heads, one of which had no paintfill and looked incredible. I really need to get around to pulling the paint out of mine. I've been putting it off due to hating doing it but man they looked awesome!

    Interesting that they will still be available. I was in a serious scramble to get as many as I could when I found out they were discontinued. Good to know there will be some new ones being put out there still!

    I'm guessing those are the same no paintfill heads I mentioned a couple posts up image/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' /> Truly a thing of beauty. Congratulations! I'm almost motivated enough to take on the project of removing the fill on mine and I hate doing it. But they just look too good!

    Yeah, sorry about that. My 8 year-old is currently recovering from heart surgery #8. Been some on/off complications this week so I've fallen behind on a bunch of things. Although I've been able to kill some downtime on the forums, getting back to my IMs have taken a backseat. When we do make it home though (next few days if all goes well?), I do plan on putting together a BST of my extras (gross invoice should be in the $850k range, so I'm going to hit my max out of pocket again this year). For starters, I have a bunch of shafts for drivers and irons. Once I'm able to rate the condition of that the aforementioned 1957s and assess a value, I'll decide what to do with them. At this point I'm leaning towards selling them (3-PW FWIW).

    You will definitely hear from me anytime I'm around Portland. A range buddy of mine fondled mine and fell in love yesterday. I suspect we will have some double dates soon. And man some no paint fill with icy ferrules sounds really nice! Cant wait to see.

    FYI I was checking for a friend with my Miura dealer and he said BB heads inventory is low, BUT he said he is getting heads again by late April. From what I understand from him, the BB line is still in production by Miura but it is now a 'limited edition' series which means it isn't stocked and made at the same frequency as standard offerings. Eventually your fitter should be able to get some.



    And yeah I see more used sets on eBay than heads only.




    Haha I pm'd rebby last week, but he hasn't gotten back to me yet. Maybe I'll get lucky when he gets around to checking his messages.



    In the meantime, anyone reading this, if you want to unload a 4-p set of BB heads, let me know! (you don't have to ship em to Canada, I have an address in the states too)




    Yeah, sorry about that. My 8 year-old is currently recovering from heart surgery #8. Been some on/off complications this week so I've fallen behind on a bunch of things. Although I've been able to kill some downtime on the forums, getting back to my IMs have taken a backseat. When we do make it home though (next few days if all goes well?), I do plan on putting together a BST of my extras (gross invoice should be in the $850k range, so I'm going to hit my max out of pocket again this year). For starters, I have a bunch of shafts for drivers and irons. Once I'm able to rate the condition of that the aforementioned 1957s and assess a value, I'll decide what to do with them. At this point I'm leaning towards selling them (3-PW FWIW).




    Sorry to hear it Rebby! Prayers sent your way and thanks for taking the time share your knowledge in here while going through it. I'm sure I can speak for everyone who has PMd you that no apology is needed.

    3-PW. Brand new. No paintfill. More later.




    Finally.



    Get ready for some WRX BB double dates folks.




    I wanna come!




    I've always wanted to play in a BB only foursome. And I would definitely want you in the group! Seriously, hit me up to play if you ever get out to Portland.



    And LOL I'm really trying to be at dan360's BB cherry pop first round. I wanna see him giggle like a little schoolgirl when he nuts his 3i off the tee for the first time. LOL I'm more excited than he is about him playing them. I've already named them his 'Ice Queens' and even picked out his ferrules.




    You will definitely hear from me anytime I'm around Portland. A range buddy of mind fondled mine and fell in love yesterday. I suspect we will have some double dates soon. And man some no paint fill with icy ferrules sounds really nice! Cant wait to see.




    The no paintfill look is "ice cold" to me, so 'Ice Queens' are ice cold too but still soooo **** hawt. dan360 already sent me a teaser pic of one of the heads and the name just popped in my head as soon as I saw them. Before I paintfilled my Cal Hotties I really considered leaving them with no paint. It's like a woman that is so beautiful she needs no makeup and is still hotter than those that do.



    LOL and it all starts with the fondling. I have another buddy that is considering a set after having seen, fondled, and hit a couple of my Cal Hotties. LOL ever since I got them and my **** Stars he always lusts after them when we play. If he gets a set then with dan360 I'm going to at least get the three of us in a group.



    I was wondering how many BB players have ever seen other BBs at random out at the course. At my last Bandon trip I did not see a BB set, but while waiting for a shuttle bus I met a guy with some Tournament Blades. That was only the third time that I ever came across another Miura player. During that same trip I had the starter at Bandon Preserve tell me that he's never seen a set like mine and that it is always nice to see blades still. I asked him if he played them and he said yes but all he sees are CBs all day long. I told him I know and I just put my head down about it and keep looking at my own clubs.

    Also rebby I hope everything works out. Thinking positive thoughts for you.

    No need to apologize, all the best to your family. Must be incredibly stressful at times.





    I too bought a set of BB heads off one of the other members here last week. Got some shafts coming in the mail as well. Can't wait to get these built, should be just in time for my course to open (still a foot of snow on the ground here, it's been the worst winter of my life - literally).



    To the gents that were talking about ferrules... where do you shop for them? I looked around on ebay a bit, but I can't sort the junk from the... not junk.

    These guys make some great and unique ferrules!







    Link to the ferrule shop is in their home page. Glad you got yourself some BBs!

    msfix13 on eBay is the place to go. Also (***IMPORTANT***) you have to get the 0.570 o.d. size to fit the wider BB hosel.

    I've never seen a set of BB on the course other than mine. I do have a friend who has a set of black oxide Miura lefty blades (he's on WRX as well) but that's the only other set of Miura blades that I've ever seen "out in the wild". A few members at my club have recently bought into the new Miura (GI/SGI) offerings though.



    Thanks to everybody who offered up prayers for my son. His surgery went very well and his recovery is coming along nicely as well. His cardiologist is already excited to get him back into the cath lab for another angioplasty!
