OUR TAKE: Possessing an iron that keeps it on the map is critically important when you’re a 20-plus handicapper. Misses are going to happen. It’s about finding ways to mitigate the big one that can help you break 100. For testers, Big Bertha B21 fit the bill as the kind of iron that’ll help keep it in play. The pronounced offset allowed some to draw the ball on command and generate comparable distances on off-center misses due to the oversized profile.
THE DETAILS: With a look reminiscent of the original Big Bertha, the new B21 is designed around a Flash Face Cup design that received the A.I. treatment, fine-tuning the thickness of the structure in specific areas to benefit golfers who don’t consistently find the center of the face. A visible tungsten energy core adds another layer of forgiveness, targeting more mass behind the lower portion of the hitting area to launch the ball high, regardless of where it impacts the face. Proprietary urethane microspheres were also strategically positioned to soak up unwanted vibrations and improve the overall feel at impact, without impacting ball speed.
