Callaway has launched the Big Bertha Fusion driver and fairway woods boasting it offers new standards in forgiveness and distance for all golfers.
The Big Bertha Fusion driver marries an all-new aerospace-grade titanium exoskeleton called ‘Exo-Cage’ with an ultra-lightweight triaxial carbon crown and sole plates, resulting in dramatically higher levels of forgiveness.
The fusion of Exo-Cage with triaxial carbon, positions substantially more weight in the perimeter and far back from the face compared to previous drivers, resulting in a driver that has a 26 per cent higher moment of inertia (MOI) in comparison with the XR 16 driver.
This weight re-positioning has also helped create an appealing, new head shape, reminiscent of Callaway’s popular FT-iZ driver, that combines fast aerodynamics with high MOI. This new shape delivers enhanced acoustics for a satisfying impact sound with superior feel.
The development of triaxial carbon was made possible by the knowledge Callaway has gained over the years by incorporating carbon materials into its woods, stretching back to the first Fusion range, launched in 2004.
Nearly 50 percent of the body of the new driver is triaxial carbon, but this accounts for only 11 per cent of the overall weight. R·MOTO Face technology also ensures the Fusion’s incredible forgiveness is perfectly married to ball speed, creating maximum distance for all golfing abilities.
THE SPECS: Available in 9°, 10.5° and 13.5° HT loft options, the club is also supplied in two shaft lengths, a 44.5in shaft marries to a head that features a 12g back weight for enhanced control and tighter dispersion. The longer 45.5in shaft is coupled to a head with a 5g back weight for greater distance potential.
Designed alongside the Fusion driver, the new high MOI Fusion fairways are available in 3-(15°), 5- (18°) and 7-wood (21°) options.
Both the Fusion driver and fairway woods will be in store from October 16 2016.
RRP: $599.99 (driver); $389.99 (fairway woods each).
