Big Bertha Branches Out

By: John Steinbreder – Global Golf Post

In addition to rolling out a new Big Bertha driver this fall, the folks at Callaway recently released iron and hybrid lines under that famous name. And they each promise improvements in distance, forgiveness and accuracy.

In addition, a tungsten-loaded standing wave in the sole is designed to lower the center of gravity in these irons, which are available from 4-SW, to encourage a higher launch angle, for longer carry and increased ball speed on hits made low on the clubface. And by moving the CG progressively lower in each clubhead from the highest-lofted to the lowest, Callaway technicians say they have found a way to provide higher launch and longer carries in the long irons, and increased control in the shorter ones.

The use of Callaway’s Speed Step technology also helps with length by improving airflow around the clubhead, company officials aver. And the employment of a Dual Runner sole is intended to promote better turf interaction, while the OptiFit hosel lets players choose from eight loft and lie settings.
