CALLAWAY has announced the launch of the Big Bertha Fusion Driver and Fairway Woods, using breakthrough construction methods and space-age materials to set new standards in forgiveness and distance for all golfers.
Big Bertha Fusion pushes the boundaries of forgiveness like no Callaway club ever has. The key benefit? More forgiveness means straighter flight on mis-hits, and straight flight nets longer distance, drive after drive.
To increase forgiveness you have to raise the head’s MOI measurement. We’ve succeeded dramatically by developing a revolutionary clubhead design that starts with an aerospace-grade titanium exoskeleton called an Exo-Cage.
The Exo- Cage is fitted with a crown and sole composed of an ultra-light, ultra-strong material called triaxial carbon.
Triaxial carbon is made possible by the deep knowledge we’ve gained from our years of experience incorporating carbon materials into our woods, stretching back to the days of the Fusion range which launched in 2004.
Big Bertha Fusion’s numbers speak volumes. The revolutionary new triaxial carbon material is over 65% lighter than titanium, and more than 35% thinner than our previous forged composite material.
This allows us to position a remarkable 35.4 grams in strategic areas of the head to optimise the centre of gravity and increase the MOI by up to 17% - a remarkable jump that golfers will notice by increasing the quality and accuracy of their off-centre hits.
This driver also incorporates Callaway’s Speed Step technology, devised with the help of aerospace experts, to enhance the head aerodynamics, promoting faster clubhead speeds.
Big Bertha Fusion is available in two shaft lengths; a 44.5” length for enhanced control and tighter dispersion, and a 45.5” length for greater distance potential.
All stock configurations are available with UST’s new Recoil driver shaft that’s designed to load more efficiently on the downswing and unload with greater power and precision through impact.
Release date: October 16. 2016
Lofts: 9*, 10.5*, 13.5*HT
THE FAIRWAY WOODS
Big Bertha Fusion Fairway Woods reach a new level of forgiveness by fusing our industry-leading, multi-material technologies into one club. And more forgiveness means straighter flight on mis-hits with longer distance.
By applying an extremely high MOI design and head shape, golfers will increase the quality and accuracy of their off-centre hits.
The crown is composed of an ultra-light, ultra-strong triaxial carbon material and weighs in at just 5.8g. Remarkably, this crown is 78% lighter than a titanium crown, which allows us to position weight in strategic areas of the head to optimise the centre of gravity and increase MOI.
And the Hyper Speed Face Cup promotes dramatically higher ball speeds all across the face, leading to more distance at every impact location.
Release date: October 16. 2016
Lofts: 3 (15*), 5 (18*), 7 (21*)
