CALLAWAY BIG BERTHA B21 DRIVER
Callaway have taken a new approach to driver distance with the release of the Big Bertha B21. Previously drivers that have been created to reduce side spin and help keep the ball straight have done so at the expense of distance. The B21 promises to eliminate slicing whilst keeping ball speeds and overall distances high.
With an extremely low and forward centre of gravity the B21 driver is one of the lowest spinning drivers on the market and lower overall spin also means less curve on shots. Historically, a golfer has had to create above average swing speeds to get the most out of forward cg, low spin driver heads as failure to create enough speed would see the ball fall out of the air much too quickly. The Callaway Big Bertha B21 looks to change that by offering high launch capabilities but with incredibly low spin, giving the low to moderate speed players the chance to get the dreaded slice spin off the golf ball.
To further help reduce slice spin the B21 driver has been constructed with internal draw bias through strategically placed weighting inside the head and with a small amount of offset it promises to be the most anti-slice driver available today. The large overall profile of the head actually looks bigger than its 460cc size and provides the golfer with a superb, confidence inspiring look at address.
The A.I. designed Flash Face that has been such a huge success in the company’s Mavrik range has been moved across to the Big Bertha B21 driver as well. The Flash Face has been extended in the B21 to cover a greater area and produces excellent ball speeds even on shots that have been badly mishit. Ball-speeds are further increased by Callaway’s patented Jailbreak technology. Two bars connect the crown to sole, allowing weight to be redistributed around the perimeter of the club without weakening the face.
The key to the performance of the B21 driver is the high launch and Callaway have further ensured this by producing a brand-new shaft specifically engineered for this club. Featuring lightweight construction and a softer more active tip section, the shaft will naturally try and add loft to the club as it reaches impact, creating the all-important launch this low spin head requires.
If you are a low to moderate swing speed golfer with a tendency to slice then the Callaway Big Bertha B21 could be the answer to all of your problems. In Callaway’s words, "isn't it time you eliminated your big miss?”
