That probably depends on the success of the BB SS and AP

I bet we see it if these do well

Ok got my team order in today

Oh my, I really like these new big bead Omegas

The nose is the Putt and Approach mold. So it is exactly like the Omega nose, but a big bead in place of the small. This is different from the proto SS big beads, which had the Aviar-x nose. This makes it a truly unique putter shape. The SS BB is crazy soft, but really nice and grippy. The AP BB is the same AP plastic as the other new APs but feels a bit better(kinda like star/pro).

The SS BB is straight with less glide-out than a regular SS. It's easy to drive with out of the box. The AP BB CRUSHES! Longest putter I have used to date. Holds a lot of lines, long or short

Disc Nation should have these in tomorrow. And we love omegas, so I'm pushing to do something special

its really up to the person

but it is easy to lay into without it moving off line, and still pushing forward. A lot of putters that you can lay into have tons of LSS, so they start to fade too soon. The AP BB with the smaller nose, the perfect balance of HSS and LSS. Its like a seasoned aviar driver mold

I'm going to have to change my pants after reading about the BBAP, and that's what I'm going to say when I throw it, "BBAP!"

So these are the same mold as the McP BB's from the Proshop?

Yes, this is why I like them even more. I really enjoy my McPro Big Beads but was scared I would never find a replacement. So I am pumped they gave this to Millennium.

The only difference is the plastics. The Omega SS BB is straighter than the McPro's and the Omega AP BB has more glide than the McPros. The AP BB is really fast out of the hand. It cruises like a midrange.
