Our take: The return of Big Bertha to its super game-improvement roots turned into a boon for 20-plus-handicap golfers who might want to throw two or three hybrids in the bag. The oversize profile and noticeable offset kept the ball in play, even when testers caught the extreme heel or toe. One tester summed it up best: “Solid and straight. I don’t feel like I need my best to have fun with this club.”

Callaway Big Bertha B21 Hybrid
OUR TAKE: This is the drive you want in the bag if you continue to fight a slice. But don’t sleep on the aesthetics. As one tester put it, “the sapphire blue with a splash of red just does it for me.” The feel at impact left also left a few wondering if they could take the club home. “I love the feel, can I get a triple love? Launches high, extra forgiving. This was my favorite by far,” another said. Aesthetically appealing and extra forgiving? It’s a pairing made in driver heaven.
THE DETAILS: To achieve the perfect balance of spin and speed, Callaway chose to freshen up the usual driver recipe, positioning the CG low and forward to reduce spin. The thought here is that reducing overall spin will also reduce the sidespin that causes wayward shots to go out of play. The end result is a spin-killer that doesn’t skimp on consistency and forgiveness. It’s a package any high-handicap slicer will no doubt appreciate when they’re finding more fairways. For additional assistance on mishits, Callaway used its Flash Face SS21 technology, which was created using Artificial Intelligence, to boost ball speeds on off-center strikes.
The details: Like the Big Bertha B21 drivers and fairway woods, the hybrids are made to launch it high, reduce a slice and unlock more distance for those who need it near the top of the set. Each hybrid was smartly designed with dual metal-injection-molded tungsten weights in the sole to generate a towering launch. For those who struggle to hit and hold the green from longer distances on their approach shot, this addition is a welcomed sight.
