Callaway Big Bertha Fairway Woods



Like Callaway’s Big Bertha drivers, the Big Bertha fairway woods offer golfers several firsts in a Callaway club.

For one, they’re the first Callaway fairway woods to combine the company’s Hyper Speed Face Cup technology with an adjustable hosel, making the Big Berthas the hottest adjustable fairway woods the company has ever created. They’re also Callaway’s first adjustable fairway woods to incorporate its internal standing wave, which serves to move the center of gravity of the clubs lower and more forward to increase ball speed.

Where the Big Bertha fairway woods differ from the X2 Hot models, however, is in their emphasis on forgiveness. Engineers concentrated more weight around the perimeter of the Big Bertha fairway woods than the X2 Hot models, which gives them higher average ball speeds and a higher launch angle according Dr. Alan Hocknell, Callaway’s vice president of innovation and design.

What might be more important for high-level golfers, however, is the fairway woods’ Opti-Fit adjustable hosel, which allows golfers to fine tune the look and trajectory of their clubs. Each of the 15-, 18- and 21-degree heads can be tuned either 1 degree lower or 1 or 2 degrees higher than their standard loft. So if a golfer was looking for a new 4 wood, for example, they could add one or two degrees of loft to the 15-degree head, which measures 175 cubic centimeters. If they preferred a smaller head, however, they could strengthen the loft of the 18-degree model — measures 170cc — to 17 degrees. Each loft setting on the dual-cog adjustable hosel can also be set to an “N” (neutral) or “D” (draw) setting, which makes the club more upright, creating eight unique loft-and-lie combinations.

The Big Bertha fairway woods come stock with Mitsubishi Rayon’s Fubuki Z shaft in light, regular, stiff and women’s flexes. The stock length for the 15-, 18- and 21- degree heads is 43 inches, 42.5 inches and 42 inches, respectively, with a stock D2 swing weight. They’re be available on Feb. 14 for around $269.

    Callaway has already surpassed other leading Golf Companies in 2013 with the X Hot fairway wood. This is just a continuation of that beating.

    After fiddling around with a bunch of different RBZ 3 and 5 woods in adjustable Tour and non-adjustable HL to find a good mix and still not being completely happy, I’m going to have to try these. The heads look quite small and unforgiving, but the Optifit dual-cog hosel is a dream.

    Really hope that bringing back the Big Bertha name pays off for Callaway. Taylor Made have been top of the woods market for far too long.
