2018 Official Forum Member Review-Big Bertha 2019 Irons

Recommended Posts

These newer clubs, with the lofts being what they are, always make me wonder two things:
How are the gaps between irons (yardage-wise)?
And
How would these affect the bottom of the bag (wedge-wise)? More wedges needed? Etc

Congrats Buddy, I’m sure you’ll do a great job with these!

How do the lofts on these compare to your current set?

Thanks my friend, they are 2° stronger so I'm guessing when I extend the shaft they will be a half club longer in flight, with me getting on in age and recovering from back surgery I don't anticipate it being a problem for me but a stronger ball striker will probably have some adjusting to do to their set up.

Yes he does.  That's why we were happy to here him say he was healthy enough to knock the crap out of these.   Well he didn't say that exactly.   But DD no doubt puts a lot into his work so I'm looking forward to hearing about these.

Well this is interesting. Congrats on the selection Dawg!

These irons wouldn’t be in my wheelhouse, but I’ll gladly follow along. Looking forward to your Stage 2.

So far the gaps have been consistent as I am getting used to them, certainly manageable with the shorter distances I get now.   I would imagine that anyone that hits their PW in the 120 range or longer would need to add a 48° or so wedge to their bag and then go 52°,  56° and 60° to finish out their bag.

How are you finding the forgiveness of these compared to your M1's?

Right now I will say similar, possibly a tad longer on mishits, I will have to do some comparisons on off center hits to verify this. I'll probably be getting that done in the next week or two.  Thanks for the question and Happy New Year everyone!

By the way - it was a great idea to put a link to this thread in your sig. Thank you! I would have totally missed this if I hadn't noticed it in another post. Have fun with the winter testing and I look forward to your stage 2!

      From Callaway 
      Here’s what Callaway staffer Steven Brown used to win the Portugal Masters today on the European Tour:
       
      Epic Flash Sub Zero Driver (10.5*) – Misubishi Diamana RF Chemical 60x Shaft
      Epic Flash Fairway Wood (15*)
      Epic Flash Hybrid (21*)
      X-Forged 18 Irons (4-PW)
      Mack Daddy Forged Wedges (50*, 56*)
      Mack Daddy 4 Wedge (60*)
      Odyssey White Hot Pro #7 Putter

      Almost a total remodel of the bag.
       



       Epic Flash SZ 10.5 set at -1 N Graphite Design Tour AD TSG Blue X (45")
      M3 15 set at -2 Paderson Fairway KG 860-F30 S
      Epic Flash SZ 18 set at S N Tensei AV Blue 70 X
       Z585 4 & 5 KBS C Taper S
       Z785 6-AW KBS C Taper S
       Glide Forged 56 KBS Hi Rev 2.0
       Glide Forged 60 KBS Hi Rev 2.0
       SS 28 CS 33"
       
      Driver: Thank you MGS, flat out the best driver I have ever had in the bag.
      3W: A random purchase after being unable to hit the original epic 3w. Put same shaft that I was fit for in the epic and it has been a match made in heaven. Absolute money from the tee and I know exactly what it will do from the fairway. Combined with the driver there are not many par 5's that I can't reach. 
      5W: Solid club but this spot has always been a trouble spot in my bag and that hasn't changed in 20 years. 
      Irons: Love the combo and they feel absolutely amazing. All of them are 1* strong, standard lie and +1/2" Biggest thing I was looking for in making the change was more control. They definitely fly different than P790's but hopefully after an adjustment period they will meet or exceed my expectations. 
      Wedges: A different look from what I am used to but feel is amazing. The shaft on full swings is so easy for me to deliver correctly. 
      Putter: Not a fast revolving door but one that moves some. Have gotten used to the look of the center shaft but still struggling with alignment some. 
      Ball: Titleist PROV1X #23 imprinted with THEZIPR in blue. Have played this ball since its birth and while I have tried many other options nothing has been able to kick it out. 
      Rangefinder: Bushnell PRO X2 
      Glove: Footjoy Weathersof. Love the Ping tour glove but at the rate I go through gloves I just can't justify the price difference.
      Shoes: Ecco Biom G 3 BOA and Biom Hybrid 3 BOA. Most comfortable shoes I have ever worn.
