Big Bertha Gold Series Irons
Only Gold is gold.
Rounds played with my golden babies:since 1999: 800+
The first round I played them, I broke 80 for the first time. The 9, 7, and 3 have each blessed me with an ace. In '09 I tried two "high-end, high-tech" sets over a two-year period. I learned that "all that glitters is not gold." Only Calaway GOLD is gold. Birdie production fell and handicap rose. In '11, out of frustration with my sustained inferior performance, I dug my first loves out and begged for forgiveness. I shot a personal best of 69 with 6 birdies at Jacksonville's "Panther Creek." If you have ever played "The Panther", you just used a colorful euphemism of disbelief. The transfer of power from body to blade is soft and sweet. Imagine hitting a dollop of mashed potatoes with a peanut inside. I found the lob wedge for 10 bucks at Play it Again Sports. The first shot I hit was into to first 5 par at WGV "The King and The Bear" The 30yd shot checked backed to its ball mark for a tap in. The classy elegance and timeless beauty of these precision instruments will share quarters with my Taylormade artillary for a long time to come.

You're able to feel the softness when you hit the ball. It enhances accuracy

One of the best set of irons ever made.
I have a set of these 3 to SW. 3,4,5,6 are not in my bag because I have Callaway hybrids, but I found out that I can hit the long irons almost as well. The Golds have such a great feel and look good. I get lots of compliments on the links from other players about my great bag of clubs. The clubs shine up well with a bit of elbow grease but some users like the patina they get over time. . The seven iron has a replacement shaft but other than that the clubs are in great shape. Unlike stainless steel, they just seem to look good with use and with age. A pro at one of the better golf stores here told me that if I wanted a new set of irons I would have to consider a high end forged set to replace these if I wanted the same quality.

An oldie but a goodie!
Love the feel of of the soft alloy heads and at the age of 60+ needed the extra whip in the RCH96 shaft to keep my length. They sit well behind the ball which adds confidence at set up.

Great Irons, so easy.
Great set of Irons. I have previously owned a set in graphite and wasn't crazy about the graphite shaft so I sold them. Big mistake. Have been using Ping Coppers/Titleist AP1s/Mizuno and none of them are as easy to use or as accurate as these.
Sold the Titleists and got myself a set of Bertha Golds with Memphis 10 shafts. Perfect!!!!!!

I would buy these again
Bogey golfer and have used these clubs for over 10 years. I have the RCH 96 graphite shafts and they swing very easy. They hit a high tragetry shot with some spin.

Value is quality at the right price
It has replaced my sand wedge. I use it over bunkers to get to the green or any time it's less than 40' to the pin.
