Callaway's new Big Bertha Fusion Irons are hard to miss. The distinctive new look screams technology (as the diagram suggests) and the striking black TPU SenSert promises a powerful strike. The top-line is thick enough to suggest a powerful strike without looking too chunky and lacking in feel. Callaway have really pushed the boat out to find the sort of cutting-edge technological benefits that have real game improving qualities. The price-tag is the main draw back, but they are certainly worth considering.
These irons are at the forefront of integrating technology to really help improve your game.

The idea behind the TPU Senset is to reduce vibrations and hollow noises and replace them with a responsive feel and crisp sound. The lightweight titanium face insert allows weight to be positioned at the perimeter of the clubhead for greater stability when the strike isn't out of the middle of the face.

In his current role, Neil is responsible for testing drivers and golf balls. Having been a part of the Golf Monthly team for over 15 years and playing off a handicap of 3, he has the experience to compare performance between models, brands and generations. For 2022 he thinks the main trend in drivers is: "In a word, consistency. Whilst all the brands are talking about ball speed (and the new drivers are certainly long), my biggest finding has been how much more consistent the ball flights are. Mishits don't seem to be causing the same level of drop-off or increase in the spin numbers. This means that more shots seem to be flying the way you want them to!" As far as golf balls are concerned the biggest development is in the, "three piece, non-Tour, urethane-covered section. For regular golfers, these models offer superb performance at both ends of the bag without denting your wallet quite as much as the premium Tour-played options."
Originally working with the best coaches in the UK to produce instruction content, he is now the brand's Digital Editor and covers everything from Tour player interviews to gear reviews. In his time at Golf Monthly, he has covered equipment launches that date back well over a decade. He clearly remembers the launch of the Callaway and Nike square drivers as well as the white TaylorMade driver families, such as the RocketBallz! If you take a look at the Golf Monthly YouTube channel, you'll see his equipment videos dating back over a decade! He has also conducted 'What's In The Bag' interviews with many of the game's best players like Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Jon Rahm. Over the years, Neil has tested a vast array of products in each category and at drastically different price-points.
