From the pics it does look like mid shallow to shallow profile which I do not mind.
Really glad to see they went with Sp700 and also moved away from carbon crown.
Pretty excited about this one!

Oh my, that is a nice looking head.  I prefer a shallower profile...seems to suit my swing for some reason...that's definitely on our radar for free agents this season...very very nice!

had my first waggle  with the carbon bottomed  last week,  didnt hit it but by the looks of it this has got to be one incredibly easy to hit drivers. looks as forgiving as ive seen

Now that is a good looking head.   Better than the Modart I have now.

Apparently slightly open face with draw biased weight ...

Been busy and quite difficult to post even though I read the forum a lot. So; I thought there was a review on this one but I couldn't find on the search.

SO apologies and please allow me a quick review (which surely lacks the technical wording). For a month or so; I ve got a new RS-D on a Crazy CB-80LS SX (bought on buyee … That Samurai-Golf shop which by the way is a very nice seller) swing weight is D2.

I still hold another Grandista in one of my bags (RS-001 - the DAT55G face) on a Tour AD MJ-7 S; it has been one of the drivers I really like even though the shaft is not that "refined".

In anyway; the new Grandista is simply excellent - forgiving and long. The feel is not super soft nor super hard; it seems a very "sober" and "well balanced" head.

It is very forgiving (really easy to hit) but also long (I think the shaft contributes for this).

In any way; a highly recommended driver and in my very humble opinion; Grandista stands there in the top among the best (for me a favorite!)

Couldn’t agree more!!  I have a 9 deg head shafted with AAA 2015.  The Trajectory is on the low side but I am getting so much more roll after the ball lands.   In fact I got my first Longest Drive in a Field Day last weekend in a 9 and under handicap division for the Men’s club at my home course!!  The feel off the face to me is just right.  Not overly muted.. just a nice softer metallic sound that is pleasing to the ears.  As Mauvanilla says,  this head is very forgiving.  Shape is very traditional looking and just beautiful to look at.  The head is draw biased so my ball flight has a nice baby draw but when I consciously create a bit more lag in my swing it goes straight with a very strong trajectory.   I read that this head was designed as a countermeasure against big 460 heads that are harder to square at impact due to the longer CG distance from the axis of rotation.  And that it is.  The ease of being able to square the face is contributing to the higher percentage of fairways I am hitting these days.  Also marked a season low of 74 with this driver in the bag!
