Callaway launched its new Big Bertha B21 lineup just a few months ago and the range has already gone down very well with amateur golfers, thanks to the extremely forgiving family of drivers, fairway woods, hybrids and irons. We've already put the driver to the test and now we want to see if the new Big Bertha B21's could be the best game-improvement irons of the year.

GolfMagic's equipment guru Alex Lodge took the Big Bertha B21 irons down to Gray's Golf to see just how forgiving and long these irons are.

THE DETAILS:

Designed with Big Bertha shaping to deliver a new formula for distance and forgiveness. This is the first time that an A.I. designed Flash Face Cup is in a Big Bertha Iron.

The unique Flash Face architecture in each iron creates high ball speeds and increased spin robustness for every club in the set.

A new Visible Tungsten Energy Core (VTEC) deepens the CG for incredibly easy launch, and patented urethane microspheres provide pure feel.

In short, you’re getting iconic shaping and incredible ball speed technologies.

RRP: £899 (4-PW)

GOLFMAGIC VERDICT:

If you're a high-handicap golfer who really struggles to get decent strikes out of your irons, then the Callaway Big Bertha B21 irons are a dream.

The 'anti-slice' feature is often one you can't help but question when a brand shouts about it, but in these irons it was extremely clear to see this technology working, as Alex didn't hit a single slice.

Given Alex's handicap and swing speed, these irons certainly are not built for him, hence the multiple shots that ended left, but for someone with a slower swing speed, these irons will definitely help you hit straighter shots.

The distance these irons were producing was crazy, with Alex hitting a 6-iron around 230 yards, but with that being said, the Big Bertha B21's are seriously strong lofted, with the 6-iron coming in at 25 degrees.

In terms of design, the B21's are typically chunky, as you'd expect from a game-improvement iron, but we really like the colourway that Callaway has gone for and we think these are one of the better looking game-improvement irons currently on the market.

So if you're a player who is struggling with a big slice with your irons and you want a set of clubs that are going to help combat this issue, the Callaway Big Bertha B21 irons offer an extremely forgiving, anti-slice club at a very affordable price, as there are plenty of deals out there right now that will see you pick up these irons far cheaper than the RRP.
