Callaway Big Bertha OS irons and hybrids

Callaway has enjoyed a busy few weeks of gear launches. We’ve already been introduced to the Steelhead XR and Big Bertha Fusion ranges. Now, it has unveiled the new Callaway Big Bertha OS irons and hybrids.

With the OS standing for oversized, the Callaway Big Bertha OS irons and hybrids are the latest in a line of designs aimed at helping ‘the super game improver’.

The higher price point and newer technology are the key differences between the new Callaway Big Bertha OS hybrids and irons and the XR OS models released earlier this year.

A direct replacement for the Big Bertha irons released in 2014, the Callaway Big Bertha OS irons feature an Exo-Cage that it says has ‘unlocked more distance’.

The lightweight construction of the new Exo-Cage has allowed more weight to be distributed to specifically chosen locations to give more forgiveness.

How does it unlock that distance? Through the new Exo-Cage.

Some of the weight can also be found in the Standing Wave in the sole. Callaway has added tungsten to give a higher launch angle, resulting in longer carry and on hits low on the face.

The next generation 360 Face Cup has also been improved as Callaway has moved it even closer to the USGA limit to give faster ball speeds and more distance.

Alongside the irons, the Callaway Big Bertha OS hybrids have also been revealed. The brand says the hybrids combine ‘super-charged distance with ultimate forgiveness’.

The distance arrives courtesy of the next generation Hyper Speed Face Cup, which also gives more consistent performance across the face.

The size of the face has been increased, too. By giving a bigger area for you to hit and more room for the face to flex, Callaway is able to give more distance.

The Speed Step technology at the front of the crown has already been seen in the XR 16, Big Bertha Fusion and Steelhead XR releases this year, so it’s no surprise it is also found in these hybrids. It reduces the drag on the head during the swing, making the clubhead travel faster at impact for more distance.

More forgiveness and control comes from the refined head design and the versatility offered by the OptiFit adjustability.

Both the Callaway Big Bertha OS irons and hybrids have specific models for women. The only difference is that they are engineered with slightly lighter heads and more loft to make it easier to get the ball in the air.
