Variety of adjustability should lead to more yardage
The length of the stock shafts and light feel in the head may reduce accuracy for some
Why you can trust Golf Monthly
A light, fast and stable chassis generates more clubhead speed through aerodynamics and a wide range of weight classes to suit every swing type, from 295g to 325g, thanks to the 12 stock shaft options. Next generation R-MOTO technology makes the driver more forgiving and leads to faster ball speeds on different strike points across the face. The 10g sliding weight first seen on the 2013 Big Bertha driver has also been included, helping golfers alter their ball flight and control dispersion while maintaining forgiveness.
Players of different skill levels who require distance and forgiveness in equal measure off the tee.
Callaway has certainly justified the return of the popular Great Big Bertha driver with this new model for 2015. The first thing that strikes you is the sole cosmetics – almost futuristic in design they offer bundles of shelf appeal. The matte-black crown and silver face is a classy combination that will help golfers align the clubface.
It feels lightweight and easy to swing, thanks to a reduction in head and shaft weight, offering a consistent flight from start to finish on well-struck shots. The feel at impact is fast and powerful and the sliding weight is a simple and effective way of negating or reducing tendencies and maximising distance and accuracy in the process.
Distance-wise it’s up there with the rest and the extra draw bias capability, aided by the option of an upright lie angle, will be welcomed by those who miss to the right. In fact, there are an abundance of settings both on the sole and hosel to help improve your accuracy while letting the technology in the head take care of the distance.
The ball flight is towering will the ball appearing to stay in the air for an eternity. The hot feel from the sweetspot leaves you keen to reach another par four or five and have another hit with it.
