Excellent performer off the tee and solid from the rough and trouble lies; repeatable high ball flight; easy to alter trajectory and dial in draws from the fairway.


Similar to what testers are used to; long enough on solid hits to get the job done; functional on misses, too.


Doesn’t provide the length that some testers expect; not as satisfying at impact as many others; this hybrid isn’t a standout in any category.

Bottom Line

The new Big Bertha provides balanced, dependable performance across the board. It’s a useful implement that’ll get the job done without bringing attention to itself.
