Can gear 5 Luffy beat Big Mom on strength?
Big Mom is a titan; her gargantuan size brings phenomenal strength. She can lift mountains and destroy entire cities if she goes on a rampage. Her level of brute strength is dangerous, even for her own children.
Even though Luffy is in no way lacking in strength, he does not rely on it nearly as much as Linlin does, thus giving her the upper hand.
Yet, with Gear 5, Luffy too can turn into a Giant and have phenomenal strength. That complicates things.
Strength is a tie or goes to Big Mom by a slight margin.
Can gear 5 Luffy beat Big Mom on speed?
It is no mystery that as a Yonko, Linlin is exceptionally fast for her size, she can move with incredible agility.
Still, it is also common knowledge that Luffy is faster. His speed cannot be matched; his attack speed and defensive agility will definitely give him the upper hand.
With Gear 5, his speed has only increased as his movements have become more fluid and faster.
Luffy wins speed.

We all know the ungodly level of durability that comes with Big Mom, she can even heal herself if need be, but even without that, Big Mom can last far longer in a fight than Luffy and can even take more damage.
But with gear 5, Luffy is literally invincible; his shape and form are subject to his will. Unless gear 5 has a time limit, Luffy has the upper hand.
Luffy wins endurance.

Big Mom’s fruit gives her a wide range of powers, most of which are almost god-like. On top of that, she has all three forms of Haki and her phenomenal strength. Her fearsome rampages are proof of her incredibly destructive power.
Luffy can not match her destructive capabilities as he is, but with Gear 5, he can literally change the shape and form of everything around him. That puts him at an advantage.
Power is a Tie

Luffy has mastered all forms of Haki and advanced Haki and has shown that his conqueror’s Haki is comparable almost only to Shanks.
