Titleist T400 Vs Callaway Big Bertha BB23 Irons

The game improvement iron space is flooded.

There is no shortage of GI irons with all sorts of different tech and features. Today, we are going to help you narrow your choices down.

We are comparing two exciting GI iron sets: the Callaway Big Bertha BB23’s and the Titleist T400’s.

The Callaway Big Bertha BB23 irons are the newest Big Bertha irons. The T400’s are very unique game improvement irons and we’ll tell you why shortly.

Which set is the better GI iron set? Read on to find out!

Titleist T400 Irons Overview

“The T400 irons feel light in the hands and have a more compact profile than the BB23 irons.”

They feature a hollow-body design for maximum face flexion and distance. But the most unique thing about these irons is their configuration.

The T400 irons start at the 5-iron and the 9-iron is 33° so that should tell you what this set was intended for.

The T400’s were designed for distance – plain and simple. They are for players who struggle to get distance from their long irons and who need to make it down the fairway.

That being said, they are not as forgiving as the BB23’s. They have narrower soles and a more compact face profile.

While they are still easy to hit, they don’t compare to the BB23’s in terms of forgiveness.

Still, the T400’s have smoother turf interaction thanks to the split sole design. We had no problems with digging or dragging while testing the T400’s.

Callaway Big Bertha BB23 Irons Overview

“The Callaway Big Bertha BB23 irons have a large footprint and look very assuring behind the ball.”

They are also much easier to launch than the Titleist T400 irons.

If you are the kind of player that struggles to get the ball in the air, the Callaway Big Bertha BB23’s are definitely more advantageous than the T400’s.

We were also finding it easier to land the ball soft on the green with these irons.

While the launch angles (17.4° on average) of the T400’s were impressive, the BB23’s were simply better at staying on the green.

“The long irons in the BB23 set were also very easy to hit and provided really good distance.

They were very impressive on approaches on long par 4’s and had the stopping power needed in those situations.

While the Titleist T400 irons played longer overall, the BB23’s were more forgiving which, for our money, makes them the superior GI irons.”

Titleist T400 First Impressions

The first thing to notice about the T400’s is how chunky the heads of the clubs are.

At address you can tell that they are going to be long and forgiving, they almost look like a hybrid they are so chunky.

Added to that, they have strong lofts that ensure distance as well as forgiving are high on the list of benefits offered by the clubs.

The clubs are progressively sized so as you get to the shorter irons, they are less chunky and more workable.

The split sole system ensures a quality turf interaction and high launching shots while the ball seems to spring off the ultra thin, forged steel face which is also L shaped to ensure higher shots off the lower part of the face.

The clubs are offset so if you do tend to slice the ball they will also be a good fit.

100g’s of Tungsten weighting expands the perimeter of the sweet spot and as you  approach the ball it is obvious that they clubs are long and consistent.

Overall first impressions, this is an excellent set for anyone who struggles to hit their irons consistently or any beginners looking for more distance from their irons.

Big Bertha BB23 Irons – First Impressions

These irons look really nice in the bag, the blue has been removed from the 21 version and the super forgivness features have been camoflaged to ensure that these irons look super slick in your bag.

These irons have longer blades, a thicker top line, a chunkier sole, and more offset to ensure that you get maximum forgiveness, distance, launch, and consistency from your clubs. These are perfect for beginners, high handicappers, slow swing speeds, and any golfer who is very inconsistent with they shots.

Slower swing speeds will get the launch and distance they want, due to light weight and ultra-low CG. Players that hit the ball all over the face will get that much-needed consistency in their ball flight.

Each iron is specially designed by A.I. and are progressive. The longer irons get good distance and the short irons have good stopping power on the greens.

Urethance Micropshers sit behind the 450 stainless steel face which gives super ball speeds for such a chunky iron while the sound and feel are also right up there with the best in the game improvement category.

Overall a great iron for anybody who wants ultimate forgiveness while sacrificing some distance and workability. It’s all about trade-offs in the Iron selection.

With the premium price point, we wouldn’t be rushing out to get these irons unless you are due an upgrade and they are the best clubs for you after fitting.

The hollow body players distance iron market is quite competitive.
