PXG 0211 DC Irons Vs Callaway Big Bertha B21 Comparison And Review
The Callaway Big Bertha B21 irons are the most forgiving that the company produces. They were designed specifically for forgiveness and distance.
Meanwhile, over at PXG, their engineers wanted to make a set of irons that offered a good combination of forgiveness and performance.
That’s how they came up with the PXG 0211 DC irons. Both the PXG 0211 DC’s and the Big Bertha’s are basically predicated on forgiveness. But which set is better overall? Find out in the following comparison.
Callaway Big Bertha B21 Irons Overview
The Callaway Big Bertha B21 irons are loaded with features that will help high handicappers get to the green faster
As soon as you pick one of these irons up, you will see why they are called Big Bertha’s. The sole is super-wide and the blade lengths are very long. We also found that it was very easy to square up on most shots with the B21’s because of the pronounced offset.
It’s not all about size with these irons though. The Big Bertha’s sport Callaway’s energy core system which utilizes custom-sized tungsten weights for every iron in the set. We found that the heftier weights were good for achieving optimal launch angles in the long irons.
On the other side, the tungsten weights provide a decent amount of spin robustness in the smaller irons.
PXG 0211 DC Irons Overview
The PXG 0211 DC’s are some of the most forgiving PXG irons we have ever tested.
In fact, we were getting ball speeds comparable to the ones we were getting with the B21’s – and that’s on shots away from the sweet spot! Speaking of the sweet spot though, our testing concluded that the B21’s played an average of a ridiculous 8 yards longer than the PXG 0211 DC’s when struck perfectly.
Still, the PXG 0211 DC’s have the Big Bertha’s on feel. They are made with an incredibly thin miraging steel but backed up with a dual core of soft polymer. So while the face flexes almost wildly, you don’t get any harsh vibration thanks to the polymer.
The PXG 0211 DC’s did spin better around the pin. We were able to hold on to fast greens with the PXG 0211 DC’s better than we were with the Big Bertha’s.
In general, you will find that the Big Bertha’s are more forgiving and longer than the PXG 0211 DC’s.
