At GolfTEC, we’ve always been fans of custom fit golf equipment to maximize your performance on the golf course. After all, the ‘E’ in GolfTEC stands for equipment. So when we heard about the brand new Callaway Great Big Bertha Driver, it’s safe to say we were pretty excited.
The Great Big Bertha Driver is officially back in action and features what Callaway is calling a true technological breakthrough — it’s built to get the most distance for ALL golfers through the club’s adjustability. According to Callaway, when you put the Great Big Bertha in your hands with all this technology, you’re living by one rule: “Leave no yard behind.” So how did they do it?
Next Generation R•Moto Technology
To get every last yard out of your driver, you need more speed. Higher ball speeds are created in the Great Big Bertha through the next generation of Callaway’s R•Moto Technology, featuring a thinner face for high ball speeds when you strike the ball in the center of the clubface, but also maintaining those ball speeds on your off-center mishits.
Head speed in the Great Big Bertha comes from the lightweight, stable, multi-material chassis and a refined aerodynamic head shape. It’s the key to generating higher clubhead speed through aerodynamics and weight classes that can be customized to your specific swing type. Did we mention we like adjustability to maximize the club’s performance yet?
Ajustable Perimeter Weighting
There is a 10 gram sliding weight on the perimeter of the Great Big Bertha. Callaway added the weight to provide additional stability to the driver, and it just so happens you can slide the weight for more dispersion control to hit your drives on line. You have virtually unlimited draw and fade bias options and more draw bias than ever before if you want to get rid of that slice. The beauty of this (aside from the adjustability we enjoy) is that it all comes without sacrificing ANY forgiveness.
If you haven’t picked up on it, we love having the ability to dial in the performance of a club through its adjustability. As mentioned with the perimeter weighting, you can quickly slide the weight to any position you want on the track based on your typical shot pattern. And the Optifit hosel on the Great Big Bertha allows you to choose from 8 different configurations to tune loft, lie, and face angle. Of course, we’d recommend you visit your local GolfTEC Improvement Center to tune the club perfectly just for you through at TECfit club fitting.
19 Shaft Options
To cap off the already spectacular customizability of the Great Big Bertha Driver, there are 19 (!!!) shaft options available at no up-charge to deliver the optimal balance of speed and control off the tee. We recommend having your swing measured to determine the right flex and weight of your driver shaft, as fitting into the correct driver shaft can lead to pretty significant results.
