VER­DICT Last year’s XR OS was a su­per game-im­prove­ment iron hid­den in a smaller shape. This year, no such sub­tlety was at­tempted. The Big Bertha OS is, well, big, and it’s suit­able for those need­ing help with launch, dis­tance and di­rec­tion. The irons use what Call­away calls an “exo-cage” that al­ters the stiff­ness of the club’s body in cer­tain ar­eas and al­lows weight to be placed where it’s most ef­fec­tive. It also lets the re­vamped cup­face (where the face wraps around part of the topline and sole to in­crease face flex) to func­tion more ef­fi­ciently. COM­MENTS (M) Colos­sal dis­tance. Ball goes a mile in the air. (H) Long irons are so easy to hit, it elim­i­nates the need for hy­brids.
