Definitely don't game one, but would love to see some pics when you get, preferably with a ball at address if possible?

Here you go....the one on the bench is obviously a BB 1 iron and the one with the ball on the floor is a BB 2 iron....Both are kind of like trying to hit it with the small end of a pool cue :taunt:

Not trying to offend anyone and I don't mean this in a negative way but other than bragging rights, what's the point of a club like this in today's golf game?

Thats tiny and a bit intimidating lol.

But I imagine the black headed version would appear to be just a bit smaller visually. To me at least it seems black head irons give a slightly smaller look address, maybe not but it for me it seems to work that way.

I am not a blade zealot and play both blades and gi depending on my mood. I have both a bb and a titleist t-mb 3 iron with no great bias toward either.

I frankly hit the bb 3 iron better. Perhaps because I know it's hard to hit and because I intend to hit very low line drives with it but regardless I end up longer with it off the tee, on more greens from the fairway and under this branches from the rough.

Not saying I would game the 2 iron, but if you are an experienced golfer, the Baby Blade heads overall are not that difficult to hit.

Once you get over the mental difference, you'd be surprised how your brain dials in over a few sessions. It is far easier for me to hit this compact club in the middle than it would be a longer toe to heel club. I can hit the 4 iron. And these clubs sound and feel different, like you really ripped it. Love to try that 2!

When the topline and leading edge comparison is a lot thinner/smaller than than the width of of the hosel......it's eff'ing scary, and you better be able to find the center of the face often lol.

I'd love to play 1 round with these just see how it is. I'm sure through 1/2 the round I'd regret it. BUT, if I could play these like I play my AP2's then it'd be a no brainer, but I'm a realist and know that'd never happen, but a guy can dream lol.

If you are that interested, start with a set of 7-P and see what you can handle.

I would agree, I find that the black finish gives the head an appearance of being smaller. I have a set of black ox 57s and a set of chrome ones. I strongly prefer the smaller look of the black ones.

Can we get pics of those? I've seen all your BB but not your CB-57.

I just went predominantly CB-57 (6-8, and maybe the 9 to follow), for the first time. Outside the CB-57 6 Iron, none of my set had seen action, always predominantly Baby Blade.

Enjoyed the first session!
