Great Big Bertha Tungsten Titanium Review

Titanium AND tungsten in the same clubs?  How can you beat that combination in an iron?  The simple answer is:  you can’t. In this Great Big Bertha Tungsten Titanium Review, I will discuss why these somewhat rare irons are still so sought after.

The advantages for golfers when club makers use titanium are pretty widely known – titanium is like a lightweight metallic trampoline that helps you hit the ball farther.  But tungsten is very heavy, and not as many people understand how using it in irons can help.  Fortunately, Ely Callaway did.  And that’s why Callaway Golf came out with its fabled Great Big Bertha Tungsten Titanium irons.

Using tungsten is an approach that’s opposite to today’s trend toward ultra-lightweight clubs. But being opposite doesn’t mean it’s wrong.  The small but heavy tungsten insert in the head of a Great Big Bertha Tungsten-Titanium iron means a lot of the head’s weight is very low and deep.  That’s a great recipe for high shots and lots of forgiveness.

Callaway Great Big Bertha Tungsten Titanium irons are packed with technology and expensive materials. They were years ahead of their time and “the best of the best” for mid- to high-handicappers when they were introduced in the late 1990s.  Yes, they’re older clubs, but they’re so sophisticated that they play like many sets introduced much more recently. Their original MSRP was $2,200.  If you think that’s a lot of money now, it was even more back then because the dollar was worth so much more.  In today’s dollars a new set would probably be unaffordable for most recreational golfers.

Because these clubs were so technologically advanced when they came out, they still stand up quite well even today.  And believe me, they’re a lot more affordable now than they were when they were Callaway’s latest model.

To me, the size of the head looks perfect and I love the low center of gravity.  I didn’t have any problems while I was playing my test set of Great Big Bertha Tungsten Titanium irons, whether I was hitting off the fairway, on hardpan, in the rough or on the tee.  They’re wonderfully balanced and they gave me nice feel and feedback.  And they were longer, higher and more accurate than many much newer irons I’ve played with.

Why would you pay hundreds more for a newer set that doesn’t help you hit the ball as well as these Great Big Berthas?  You wouldn’t, and you don’t need to.  Callaway’s Great Big Bertha Tungsten Titanium irons are available online at very reasonable prices.  I highly recommend them for players with handicaps of 10 or higher.
