Callaway is giving you the opportunity to unlock ‘up to two clubs longer’ distance from your shots with the announcement of the new super-forgiving, super-long Big Bertha Irons.
Heralding a new generation in ‘fast’ performance, the all new cast, hollow-bodied head design features a wrap-around 360 Face Cup which marries the ball speed benefits of Callaway’s Variable Face Thickness(VFT) Technology to a Cup Face construction that spreads the sweetspot across the whole hitting surface.
To maintain forgiveness and maximise ball speed, Big Bertha Irons feature an Internal Standing Wave design that pushes the centre of gravity low and forward in the head, allowing the ball to get airborne easier and with increased MOI at impact (resistance to twisting), meaning more shots on target.
Dr. Alan Hocknell, Callaway’s Senior Vice President of Research and Development, said: “We are significantly raising the bar of what’s possible in the design and performance of irons with the introduction of Big Bertha. We’ve taken proven Callaway Driver and Fairway Wood technologies and configured them for irons. The result is a new generation of ‘long’ that not only delivers blistering performance out of the sweetspot, but also maintains it across the whole face, which is great news for golfers of all abilities."
Big Bertha Irons RRP: £899 Graphite Shafts (7 irons)
Feature premium shaft options as standard – either True Temper Speed Step 80 steel or a new UST Recoil graphite and are available for men and women, in right and left-hand options.
For golfers that struggle with their long irons, Callaway also announces its first-ever range of adjustable utility clubs – Big Bertha Hybrids.
Like the Big Bertha Irons they are longer and built for huge ball speed, but with adjustability for even more distance and control.
The hybrids feature Callaway’s Speed Frame Face technology which is thin, light and robust so that it is fast across the whole club face; this is where the fast ball speed comes from. Coupled to this, an Internal Standing Wave inside the head lowers the CG, ensuring the golf ball launches quicker, forgiveness is maximised, and the club’s high resistance to twisting on impact (MOI) is maintained, ensuring pinpoint accuracy.
To help create the ideal trajectory, an adjustable OptiFit hoselhas been added, giving golfers the opportunity to choose from a combination of eight different loft (-1, S, +1, +2) and lie angles (draw and neutral) to really dial in shot shape.
Big Bertha Hybrids RRP: £199
Available in 3-hybrid (19°), 4-hybrid (22°), 5-hybrid (25°), 6-hybrid (28°), 7-hybrid (31°) (some options custom fit only).
