Callaway 2023 Big Bertha Hybrid Review
Callaway has updated its iconic range of Big Bertha clubs (opens in new tab) and the hybrid included in this collection is a versatile and easy-to-use rescue wood perfect for club golfers seeking more consistency. It is an upgrade on the excellent Big Bertha B21 hybrid (opens in new tab) which was released back in 2020, delivering faster ball speeds, stronger ball flights and excellent carry distances.
On first inspection, this hybrid comes in a compact package that is not too far off the footprint of the head on the Callaway Paradym hybrid (opens in new tab), launched earlier this year. The blade length is a little longer and it sits fairly shallow, instilling a lot of confidence which many players will enjoy.

The sole features a fairly simple, yet, striking design that is similar to what was seen on the premium Great Big Bertha Hybrids (opens in new tab). It boasts a stunning grey colorway that is contrasted by pops of silver and some red detailing that help to make this one of the best looking hybrids around.

What it hopes to achieve, as with many of the best Big Bertha clubs, is to help you enjoy the game more, by making it easier to play longer shots that stay in play more often. The Big Bertha hybrid is a more forgiving club compared to the Paradym, so really is better for the less experienced player and holds its own against some of the best hybrids for high handicappers (opens in new tab).
It’s clear that Callaway has not skimped on innovation here. The main thing to note is that the brand has improved the weighting system on this hybrid compared to the B21. A precision tungsten weight has been added internally to deliver greater forgiveness and higher launch angles. That is twinned with the Jailbreak A.I. and Batwing technology the brand has inserted behind the face, which works in tandem with an A.I. designed Face Cup to produce fast ball speeds and favorable spin from wherever you strike the ball on the face.
