Review: Callaway Big Bertha Hybrid


The Takeaway

Back in the day of the original Big Bertha, there was no such thing as a hybrid. So, for 2015 Callaway introduces its first ever Big Bertha Hybrid. The Big Bertha Hybrid is designed to produce distance. Being very easy to launch, the added benefits of adjustability make it a great fit for a large group of players who do not swing at warp speed. The slightly larger offset head is clean and simple, and like most Callaway products is easy on the eyes.


Who’s it for?

The Big Bertha Hybrid is for those that produce a mid to lower swing speed, and want the club to do the work for them. What I mean by that is that the Callaway Big Bertha Hybrid is very easy to swing and it feels like the club is doing the work, but in actuality you will have to do the work to make it work for you.


Final Take – Gom’s Pick

I struggled with the Big Bertha Driver and Fairway Wood, but saw marked improvement with the hybrid. The UST Recoil shaft really caught my interest with super-tight dispersion and less spin than I saw from the driver and fairway wood. My distance suffered some due to high spin, but any club that goes as straight as this one did has my attention. This club should really perform well for those whose swing speed is slightly below average or slower.
