The Big Bertha is Back!
Callaway intros Big Bertha and Big Bertha Alpha Drivers

That’s right, the infamous ‘Big Bertha’ driver is back. Callaway is re-introducing the brand to market, in two new models.

The Big Bertha and Big Bertha Alpha both feature new tech from Callaway, and anyone that used to play a Bertha will want to give them a solid look, and perhaps even a try.

The Big Bertha has a 19% larger sweet spot compared to last years’ RAZR Fit Xtreme. It also features the same 8-way adjustable hosel used in Callaway’s Optiforce drivers.

But perhaps the coolest bit of tech found on the BB is the 8-gram weight that slides on a five-inch track along the back of the club. Moving the weight shifts the lateral centre of gravity. Folks at Callaway say this greatly effects sidespin. In fact, it can account for a 360rpm change, which translates into just over a 15-yard dispersion.

Pack all this up and add a composite crown, extra perimeter weighting and a Mitsubishi Rayon Fubuki shaft, and you’ve got a winner. The Big Bertha will be available in lofts of 9, 10.5, and 13.5, and will hit stores on February 14, 2014 for a MSRP of $399.

The Big Bertha Alpha is a bit different. It’s missing the 8-gram weight slider, but was actually designed for better players. It features adjustable loft settings to strengthen loft by 1 degree, or weaken by 2. It also features a removable carbon tube in the head (a first-ever innovation). The tube has heavy tungsten on one end and a light nylon on the other, allowing you to alter backspin up to 300rpm without changing anything else. If you position the tungsten end near the sole, you create a mid-spin head. Position the tungsten higher in the head makes it a low-spin beast.

The Big Bertha Alpha is also debuting on February 14, 2014 at a MSRP of $499.

Stay tuned for more on both of these offerings from Callaway.

    Lenders are delighted to lending money under FHA guidelines since FHA insures that if the
    lendings default, then the loan provider gets paid off out
    of the FHA insurance policy fund.

    Gradually, exclusive home mortgage insurance (PMI) firms came into play, and
    also now FHA primarily offers individuals that can not afford a standard deposit or otherwise do not qualify for PMI.
