For years, the Callaway Golf Company has been manufacturing high quality golf related products. The once golf club only manufacturer has now become a multi-million dollar producer of golf related sporting goods. Amidst its popularity, the company is still widely famous for their high performance golf clubs.
One of their products, the Big Bertha Alpha is one of the high quality golf clubs owned by many professional golfers in the world. This particular golf club is currently the lowest spinning driver in the company’s catalog of products. The Big Bertha Alpha is composed of eight different materials such as titanium, carbon fiber, tungsten, aluminum and steel. The other materials are considered trade secrets. The company’s engineers were able to successfully combine such complex materials in such a way, that the energy of the swing was efficiently distributed to where it is needed the most.
It features 4 adjustability features such as perimeter weights, loft, lie and gravity features which allows for precise performance optimization. Callaway Golf also equipped the Big Bertha Alpha with the Gravity Core. This is a movable weight system that conveniently enables adjustment of the vertical center of gravity. Both ends of the core have a tungsten weight. One end weighs 12 grams while the other only 1.5 grams.
The Big Bertha Alpha is also equipped with the Advanced Outfit hostel technology. This enables players to adjust the lie and loft of the golf club according to their swing preference. The Big Bertha Alpha golf club has 4 removable perimeter weights; they weigh 7, 5, 3 and 1 gram respectively, and can also help a golfer optimize the conditions of his hits. The 7 and 1 gram weights are pre-installed. The Big Bertha Alpha can be adjusted to fit multiple configurations giving golfers, professionals and amateurs alike, a wide variety of optimization options.
The Big Bertha Alpha driver’s Gravity Core system enables golfers the capacity to adjust the vertical center of gravity and modify spin regardless of the angle of launch. It is also equipped with other systems that enable users to synch it with any type of swing regardless of skill.
The Big Bertha Alpha is more pricy compared to the Callaway Golf Company’s latest golf clubs, the X2 Hot drivers. A number of golfers might not have the resources to afford this particular golf club.
The Big Bertha Alpha has a small footprint and conventional shape which majority of golfers find attractive. The appearance of the club gives its users confidence in their golf skills. The Gravity Core system gives this particular golf club a high tech and futuristic appearance. The crown of this golf club has a smooth and ergonomic look. The face of the Big Bertha Alpha driver has a somewhat robust feel particularly at impact and offers great responses on mishits. This particular driver also gives off a loud and solid sound during impact with the ball. It has great maneuverability and high flexibility thanks to its lightweight but durable composition.
Nonetheless, many golfers find the golf club a little too lightweight for their tastes stating that they cannot get a feel of the club or the ball for that matters. Many also stated that they felt as if the club was going to break upon impact. Some golfers found it difficult to adjust the driver according to their personal specification. The price was definitely an issue for some stating that they can get greater distance and less spin with the Callaway Golf Company’s Hot X2 driver, which was significantly cheaper than the Big Bertha Alpha. However, majority of users stated that these issues were more or less resolved as they grew accustomed to the club.
