Callaway Big Bertha Irons Review
This year, Callaway has unveiled its new Big Bertha Irons, the latest members of the iconic Big Bertha Family, packed with technology and innovation to deliver even greater levels of performance. Something that Golfshake's Ryan Rastall has taken the opportunity to test and review for us.
In terms of the tech, this from Callaway should provide some insight:
The Suspended Energy Core is the engine of the new Big Bertha Irons; a construction never before achieved in a golf club, and designed to deliver easy launch; long consistent distance; and incredible sound and feel.
It starts with a Metal Injection Molded (MIM’d) Tungsten Floating Weight suspended within Callaway’s proprietary Urethane Microsphere material. Suspending the floating weight allows the Centre of Gravity to be positioned deeper in the head, promoting higher launch.
Then a new thinner and faster 360 Face Cup, boasting a shallow, flexible rim around the perimeter of the face, perfectly combines with the high-launch characteristics fuelled from the Suspended Energy Core to deliver super-long ball flights.
A Smoked PVD Finish complements the clean Big Bertha Iron look, and new Super Soft/Light Recoil ESX graphite and KBS Max 90 steel shafts and Lamkin S5 Genesis Grips complete the high performance package.
For Ryan - our PGA Professional and resident Equipment Expert - it should be worth your consideration, particularly for mid to higher handicap golfers. "It goes a long way. It's very strong lofted, but it has to be, because it's launching so high, that if the lofts weren't cranked that little bit, we'd lose that in the air in spin. I got one seven iron to go over 220 yards, which is just scary. So, it's really, really hot off the face. If you're someone who needs a bit more distance, this could be the iron for you."
