Callaway’s latest instalment of the long-standing Big Bertha range includes what they are calling their easiest to launch distance iron, as well as a hybrid featuring Jailbreak technology, both aimed at ultimate game improvement.
Callaway Big Bertha Irons
Replacing the Big Bertha OS irons from 2016, the new Big Bertha irons are centred around the new Suspended Energy Core, which is said to provide the full package of easy launch, distance and desirable sound and feel.
The construction is comprised of a floating tungsten weight suspended within the main head material which allows the
Centre of Gravity to be moved further back, creating higher launch and allowing a thinner, faster, Face Cup design.
This 360 Face Cup is a flexible rim located around the edge of the face which can flex and release at impact to help raise ball speed. This, along with the higher launch, promotes longer distance so golfers get greater value for their shots.
The Big Bertha Irons boast a Smoked PVD Finish and are available with a choice of Recoil ESX, Recoil ZT9, and KBS Max 90 shafts at an RRP of £1149 upon release in March.
Callaway Big Bertha Hybrids
The new hybrids bring Jailbreak technology to Big Bertha for the first time and also feature an updated system for adjustability. These features combine to increase speed and optimise launch in a package designed to improve overall distance and performance.
The Jailbreak Technology previously seen in Callaway's Epic and Rogue metals incorporates two internal bars that stiffen the body and promote fast ball speed and long distance. This ball speed is further influenced through an ultra-thin Carpenter 455 steel face and Hyper Speed Face Cup, which ensure ball speeds are consistently high across the face to help all levels of golfers even when they mis-strike shots.
A new shorter, lighter OptiFit Hosel has been developed to save weight at the bottom end of the club, re-positioning it to optimise the Centre of Gravity and increasing launch for a more impressive ball flight.
A progressive head shape increases MOI to provide a club which is both forgiving and appealing for golfers of any skill level.
The hybrids are available from March 1st at an RRP of £269, and options range from a 19-degree 3-hybrid to a 33-degree 8-hybrid, with premium Recoil ESX and ZT9 Shafts for great feedback and performance on every shot.
