Callaway Big Bertha V Series Driver and Fairway Woods

Callaway Big Bertha V Series Driver and Fairway Woods

Callaway Golf officially introduced their new line of Big Bertha V Series drivers and fairway woods, which will be available at retail on August 22nd. The entire new line of woods contains what Callaway calls, "speed optimized technology," which means they're made to swing faster than any Big Bertha clubs to date. This is accomplished through the use of lightweight components, an improved aerodynamic clubhead design, and lightweight shafts and grips.

Interesting

From Callaway: A large portion of the market can benefit from more speed to produce more kinetic energy...

My guess is that this market is for golfers who want to produce more club head speed so control is not an issue. Does that liteweight in head, too, translate to more club head speed. Callaway says it does ... up to 7+ more yards.

Maybe someone not from Callaway can explain the physics. From discussions of previous liteweight drivers versus "normal" weight heads, supposedly the added club head speed cancels out the lack of club head mass to produce more yardage.

45.5 inches, D0 Swingweight, the Lite and R flexes are 42g in the Mitsu E Series 2 Shaft; the S Flex is 56g. The 9 deg version has a Motore Speeder 565 at 56 g and D2.

The 9 degree version has more weight in the head and a slightly heavier shaft for players with speed. Harry English supposedly has it in his bag this week.

It is adjustable to -1, Std, +1, +2, and for lie angle.

Appears to be quality shafts.

$399 due out Aug 22.

    • Yep! I have both a FJ jacket and pants in rainwear that I bought years ago. I don't use them very often so they've lasted a long time. But, they're heavy and hot! They were made before GoreTex and other waterproof, breathable fabrics. My advice? Get the absolute best you can afford! They will last you a long time, they will keep you comfortable, they will be light, and they won't impede your swing very much.
    • Thanks for all the responses. I think this boils down to the context of the situation. I had two of the foursome busting chops about hitting out of order on previous holes. Then the first time it was mildly inconvenient for them to wait, the holed out just as i hit the green. Mind you.  This wasnt an "adventure" hole.. I hit the green on stroke 5 because of a flub shot that went about 10 ft. And an errant approach that left me about 10 yards short of the green. In any other case I agree that its perfectly fine to hit when ready, but not if you complain about hitting out of order. I guess to paint the picture, one whipped a club on the 3rd hole due to sculling a shout out of the bunker.. on another hole had one of them walking towards green right in front of my approach.. he nicely moved about 3 yards to the right as i asked him to move. As karma would have it, i hit the shot straight at him and nearly hit him.. these were friends of mine.. so a lesson learned to play golf with different friends..
    • Picked one up and checked it out in a store the other day. First thing I noticed about it was how heavy it was. Reminded me of when I went out for the HS golf team, and the coach had a Driver with a solid steel head on it. He advised us that we were NOT to hit drives with it! It was for warm up only. Being as heavy as it is, I think the main benefit to it might be that it slows your transition from backswing to downswing. There's a whole lot of guys who could use that!
    • OK, this kind of clears things up for me. I thought you might have been trying to take close ups of clubheads impacting golf balls. In that case you'd need something numbering in the several thousands of fps! If all you need is to look at swings I'd say anything the budget allows should suffice. Consider the 960fps system mentioned. If a golf swing takes about I second, at a playback rate of 30fps, that gives you a swing video of 32 seconds in length. Plenty long enough to see the golfer's bodily motions. Considering how small the clubhead will appear when videoing the entire golfer, I don't know that fps is the main consideration. It could be pixel count and the quality of the lenses. This reminds me of my "audiophile" days when cassette tapes were all the rage. I had a BIC deck that could record at 7 1/2 ips (inches per second), and an Audiovox car player that could play back at that speed. The sound quality was amazing! You were putting the same amount of info into twice as much space! There was so much more room!
    • Wondered how and where achievements came from. I've broken par,  ( handicap is +3) 2 eagles on par 5's so far this year Hole in one 2 years ago on vacation in Arizona at Karsten ASU course.  My first one.
