Callaway Big Bertha 2008 Men's Iron Set

Callaway Big Bertha 2008 Men’s Iron Set

For 2008, Callaway has redesigned its easy to play irons, and may in the process have invented a new breed of club—the “i-brid.” From a design point of view, it’s supposed to be midway between a game-improvement iron and a hybrid, with a huge sole and extreme weighting. In the set, the i-brids replace the 3-, 4- and 5-irons, all the while integrating seamlessly into the rest of the set. Certainly the transition from long-to-short irons is less jarring than in sets with hybrids.

The set also incorporates all of Callaway’s now-familiar technology for making clubs easier to play: notched weighting, a short hosel and a massive undercut channel.



  • Wish I saw these before I went out and got my MX-25 Mizunos. Are these “I-brid” a mix of Hybrids and a regular Iron?

  • They look a little like a fat iron. Callaway has them positioned as something midway between an iron and a hybrid.

    Ralph Maltby’s Golfworks component golf company has been making similar clubs for years.

  • Traded a set of ‘05 TM RAC HT’s , which I loved & researched mega before purchase. If the TM’s are 5 out of 5 for hitability & forgiveness, these ‘08 Cal B. Bertha’s( graphite)have to be 10 out of 5.Can’t remember having ( don’t remember much these days!) soooo much fun on the links!
