The Callaway Big Bertha Heavenwood Hybrids are very easy to hit and a great alternative to long irons.
With the new War Bird sole they are very easy to play from the tee, semi-rough or the fairway. They are mainly aimed at the mid to higher handicapper as the higher lofter versions hit it higher then their equivalent irons.
Lower handicappers may appreciate the lower lofted versions as they are easier to hit than a 1 or 2 iron and they are great all round clubs, giving more hitting options than a fairway wood.
We tried a 14 degree version against a 15 degree Callaway Big Bertha Steel Fairway Wood and it produced a lower trajectory than the fairway wood, but not as low as the comparable iron from the X-18 Pro Series Irons. However the shafts are shorter on the Heavenwoods than on the Fairway woods so they will not hit it as far.
Looks wise, the design is clean and sharp, but from above the head looks longer and shallower than a fairway wood, which may not be everyone's cup of tea and we are not over-keen on the hosel design.
Overall if you are looking for a utility/rescue club then this is definitely one to consider.
