Callaway Big Bertha Iron

The Callaway Big Bertha Iron is Callaway’s new Uniflex stainless steel irons designed base on the legendary Big Bertha Irons of 1994 that features a wide sole that increases forgiveness and dramatically improves playability. As with all current Callaway Golf clubs, the proven and patented Variable Face Thickness (VFT) Technology is an important element in the Big Bertha Irons.

Features

The Callaway Big Bertha Iron features a thick, rounded sole that is of uniform width in each iron. This design serves several key performance functions. For example, the sole width allows the centre of gravity (CG) to be positioned j into the air on a high trajectory. The sole design also reduces digging on “fat'' shots, promoting crisper contact on less-than-perfect swings. The wide sole and top line also instilled confidence with the long irons, which are remarkably easy to hit. The Big Bertha Iron set takes forgiveness to new heights by integrating a set of clubs featuring the new i-brids (clubs designed to replace hard-to-hit long irons) and transitioning that set into traditionally shaped irons. This i-brids club blend the control and accuracy of irons with the forgiveness, distance and versatility of hybrids. The low, deep centre of gravity (CG) helps get the ball in the air quickly and easily, and the extremely wide sole helps improve turf interaction. It is also designed for the ultimate in forgiveness in their oversize design with an increased offset, a large effective hitting area and a wide sole for exceptional turf interaction. Its seamless performance progression throughout the set provides consistent distance separation with optimal trajectories. It is designed with Callaway Golf Core Technologies such as Extreme Notch Weighting redistributes more weight to the perimeter for a higher moment of inertia (MOI) and more stability. The VFT Technology maximizes ball speed and perimeter weighting for more distance and forgiveness; while the S2H2 increases discretionary weight by removing it from the hosel and repositioning it in the perimeter of the clubhead; plus 360-Degree Undercut Channel maximizes perimeter weighting by moving the CG lower and farther back. It also has an advanced and modified version of the original Tru-Bore Design; the polycarbonate tip plug at the end of the shaft dampens vibration for enhanced feel and performance. The Callaway Big Bertha Iron comes in various degree of lofts such as 3 Iron with 20º loft (for right handed / left handed player), 3 i-brid with 20º loft (for right handed / left handed player), 4 Iron with 23º loft (for right handed / left handed player), 4 i-brid with 23º loft (for right handed / left handed player), 5 i-brid with 26º loft (for right handed / left handed player), 5 Iron with 26º loft (for right handed / left handed player), 6 Iron with 29º loft (for right handed / left handed player), 7 Iron with 33º loft (for right handed / left handed player), 8 Iron with 37º loft (for right handed / left handed player), 9 Iron with 41º loft (for right handed / left handed player), PW with 45º (for right handed / left handed player), AW with 50º (for right handed player only), SW with 55º (for right handed / left handed player), SW with 55º (for right handed / left handed player), and LW with 60º (for right handed player only). Loft usually is measured in degrees, of the angle at which the face of the club lies relative to a perfectly vertical face. Technically, iron loft and wood loft are measured slightly different, but the effective result is the same. Loft gives you an idea of how far and how high the ball will go.
