Callaway Golf today officially announced their new Big Bertha Irons and Big Bertha Hybrids, which are available nationwide on January 18, 2019, and available for pre-order starting November 30th. Both are designed with advanced technologies to deliver long distance and easy launch.

Big Bertha Irons

Callaway is calling these their easiest to hit distance iron. They feature a new technology called the Suspended Energy Core, which they say is the engine of the Big Bertha Irons. Per Callaway:

Quote

It starts with a Metal Injection Molded (MIM’d) Tungsten Floating Weight suspended within our proprietary urethane microsphere material. Suspending the floating weight allows us to position the Center of Gravity deeper using a 3-piece iron construction. Now we can create higher launch while allowing a thinner, faster Face Cup construction. That combination promotes distance-enhancing launch conditions we’ve never been able to achieve before in an iron that’s also extremely easy to hit.

The Big Bertha Irons also feature the 360 Face Cup which combined with the Suspended Energy Core produce higher ball speeds and longer distance than the Big Bertha OS Irons.

A stock set is 4-AW. MSRP will be $1,200 for steel and $1,300 for graphite.

Big Bertha Hybrids

Callaway's new hybrids will feature their Jailbreak technology with adjustability for the first time in a hybrid with a new OptiFit Hosel system. Per Callaway:

Quote

The synergy of Jailbreak and Hyper Speed Face Cup promotes a level of power never thought possible in a hybrid. And to make it super-easy to launch, we’ve introduced an entirely new OptiFit Hosel System that’s shorter and lighter, allowing us to fully optimize the Center of Gravity. A new progressive shape makes it easy to hit, and new premium Recoil shafts add to an appealing design that’s worthy of being called Big Bertha.

The Big Bertha Hybrids are progressively shaped to be both appealing and forgiving, and are packed with high MOI technology.

Hybrids are available 3H-8H. MSRP will be $269.99 per club.

$270 per hybrid and $12-1300 for SGI irons which are meant for entry level and or senior golfers. The pricing of golf equipment is out of control. Way to grow the game Callaway...

    • Hard to think of a more perfect iron shot from the rough. I guess you could ask to hole out but that seems a little greedy. Brave to even try the shot then it sounds like. Glad you were rewarded!
    • Some of DiMarco's missed putts were pretty timid efforts so that is why I described it as giving them away. He can say he misread them and that is true for some but others really were just poorly struck. It is not to say DiMarco handed the green jacket to Tiger on a silver platter but Tiger was very fortunate that DiMarco did not really capitalize on the chances he was giving himself. That said I agree it does not really take away from the case for Tiger's greatness. The post iacas linked to came off rather biased in tone so I more pointed this out to acknowledge that every Tiger victory was not a controlled cruise either. I think it just goes to show that winning a major is extremely difficult and even the greatest need some bounces to go their way sometimes. It is like that with many sports when played at such an elite level.
    • I played Richter Park a few weeks ago for the first time. It was nice, though not something I desire to drive two hours for. Playing Links at Union Vale again in a few weeks; that is a course that I don't mind the drive for. We could look at other central CT courses. Wintonbury Hills is really nice. I'm playing Gillette Ridge tomorrow, which is supposed to be similar. 
    • Jack's courses always seem to be like you have to always be calculating and many risk/reward decisions. It's harder to relax on his courses, imo.
    • Depending where folks come from, West Point Golf Course would be a nice location.
