The Callaway Big Bertha Driver is the largest headed driver Callaway have done so far and it certainly gives you lots of confidence at address.

The design of the head is very clean and we think it looks great. It plays great too and gives a long penetrating flight from across the face.

Callaway always focus heavily on how a club sounds and feels and this one scores highly in both areas. There is a good selection of shafts with many of the top makes of shaft available at no extra charge. As always we would recommend a custom fitting session to get the right shaft for your swing.

Given that the Callaway Big Bertha Titanium 454 Driver has reached the limits of size and COR then it should be a good investment for years to come and for once Callaway have priced this at a sensible level so we think this is a great deal.

Found this 454 at a pawnshop, came with X flex shaft. It hits straight with a boring shot trajectory.As long off the tee as others though found able to play the ball more forward it produced a higher and longer shot with little deviations. I want another.

I have had my 454 for over 10 yrs. I have tried a couple drivers with newer technology and have not found one that performs better than the Big Bertha for me.

I have a few drivers but the Callaway Big Bertha 454 is the best club I own. I hit it farther than any other club, I recommend it very much.

I have both the Callaway 454 and the Ping G2. I find that the Ping will go further (approx 10 yards) but is more likely to stray of the middle of the fairway. The Callaway 454 seems to me to be very consistent, though not quite as long, however, playing your second stroke from the fairway is always more likely to improve your round total. The Callaway 454 definitely appears to have more weight on the sole and for me this contributes greatly to the ability to control the direction and flight shape to a greater degree.

Just bought this Callaway Big Bertha Titanium 454 today, took it onto the practice ground and hit it twenty yards further than anything I have tried before. I found that I needed to to tee it slightly lower than other deep faced drivers I have had for a penetrating ball flight

The Callaway Big Bertha 454 driver is a quality club. Sits well behind the ball, is easy to hit and makes a great solid sound at impact. The flight is penetrating which is what I'm looking for. It looks good and performs just as well. Definitely one to consider.

The Callaway Big Bertha 454 driver looked great and felt great and I felt I got good distance and control off it. I liked the fact that almost every shaft in the market was available for it. The 460cc head gives you lots of confidence and this is going to be challenging the Ping G2 and the TaylorMade R7 as the best driver in the market in 05 and beyond. There's not much to choose between them and on price the Callaway Big Bertha 454 is nearly as good value as the Ping in my books.
