CALL­AWAY BIG BERTHA OS

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - GOLFING | GEARGUIDE -

www.call­away­golf.com Avail­abil­ity: 4-PW, AW, SW (stock set 4-PW or 5-SW) Stock shaft: True Tem­per Speed Step 80 (s), UST Re­coil ES 460 (g)

7i loft/length: 30° / 37.25”

TECH: A light­weight, strong Exo-Cage frame in­side the head elim­i­nates in­ef­fi­cient weight, mean­ing Call­away’s engi­neers had more weight to po­si­tion to in­flu­ence for­give­ness.

WE SAY: The con­struc­tion method of this lat­est model is noth­ing like the very suc­cess­ful orig­i­nals. The OS’s new cage head has parts welded onto a very light­weight frame to cre­ate a se­ri­ously for­giv­ing iron, un­like oth­ers. Simon was a big fan of the very tidy shape and chunky top edge, and from a loft 1.5° weaker than our long­est iron the OS posted a ball speed 3mph faster and car­ried shots 6.4m fur­ther than our test av­er­age. Im­pres­sive.

VER­DICT: If your game needs full-on for­give­ness, this is a great op­tion. How all that for­give­ness is rolled to­gether into a de­sign that’s much more ap­peal­ing than the orig­i­nal is very im­pres­sive.
