The 4 i-brid has a beefier, wider sole, to produce easy lift from hard-to-hit long irons.

The Big Bertha brand has been synonymous with ultra-forgiving
irons since it was first stamped on a set more
than a decade ago. For 2008, this stainless steel classic
gets modernized. The most striking change is to the
long (3-, 4- and 5-) irons. Dubbed “i-brids,” these
hybrid-like long-iron replacements are built for control
(like irons), as well as distance and versatility (like
hybrids).

(Research these irons with our Equipment Finder.)

In fact, each iron in the set has more mass
lower and toward the heel and toe than the previous
Bertha (released in 2006). The new center of gravity
is 30 percent farther back from the clubface; the
combined inertia (the club’s ability to resist twisting)
from heel-to-toe and topline-to-sole is 33 percent
greater. In short, this Bertha is one
straight shooter.
