Anyone still playing the 'original ' Big Bertha irons???
I keep coming back to these !!
Actually loving the retro look and they still feel great and are plenty long enough
Any one upgrade the steel shafts to something newer eg KBS ??

I used to game these, but switched because they were graphite shafts. They are pretty decent irons though. I might have them reshafted with some S300's.

I was thinking the same thing...lol....I couldn't get behind anything about those, too thick and the sound was too clicky.

I liked the Great Big Bertha Tungston Ti irons myself. Saw a set in a local golf shop and was really tempted.

Carded my first ace in 1994 with a fairly new set of the '94 BB irons.  Loved them.  Probably should have hung on to them.  Brother-in-law, with me that day, suggested I should put an asterisk on the ace since I was using those "big-headed irons".  My second ace was in 2004, that time with a 690mb Titleist blade.  Truely, opposite ends of the iron spectrum from one ace to the other.  If the 10 year cycle continues, 2014 should be the year for another sure ace.  I'm planning on it!!!!  :>)

The thick topline on those things turned me off when they were first introduced.  Almost as ugly as the Zing.  Kinda hard to hit what you don't like looking down at, I figure.  As I recall, a guy on my H.S. golf team had them and he loved em.

My buddy plays them. I have taken a few cuts and I didn't like the sound/feel. But they have to be as forgiving as my g15's

Worst looking irons EVER, my regular golfing buddy used them for years, even the SW and LW.  BUT they are very easy to hit, they set up behind the ball square and they fly straight and long, They are the kind of iron that once you get used to them it is hard to switch because nothing else looks like them.  I can understand why someone might use them just because they are so functional, and you kind of fall in love with them like you would that ugly mutt of a dog that can become your most loyal friend, but the wedges were just dreadful, my buddys wedge game did improve when he finally switched to Vokeys.

I got a set when they 1st came out.  I think thru the 7 iron they are as good as anything since. The short irons were bulky and not the best around the greens.  I used a mixed set of BBs thru the 7 and eye2 8 - lob for several years.
