Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 815 Fairway Woods and Hybrids
Following the debut of Big Bertha Alpha 815 and Double Black Diamond drivers last October, Callaway unveils complementary Big Bertha Alpha 815 fairway woods and hybrids.
The new fairway woods are packed with adjustability features. Two sole weights—3 grams and 30 grams—can be swapped to change launch angle, spin rate and ball flight. (The Gravity Core plays a similar role in Big Bertha Alpha 815 drivers.) Positioning the 30-gram weight closer to the face results in lower-spinning shots while the 30-gram weight in a more rearward position means higher launch and more head stability. In addition, Callaway’s OptiFit hosel provides eight combinations of loft and lie angle. The company’s Forged Hyper Speed Face Cup—the face gets welded to the crown and sole rather than to the top and bottom of the face—flexes more, especially on shots hit low on the face and boosts ball speeds over a larger area of the face. The heads have a traditional shape and attach to Fujikura Speeder 665 shafts. Lofts: 14°, 16°, 18°. Available January 16. $300 each.
Designed for better players, the Big Bertha Alpha 815 hybrids have a low, forward center of gravity to promote low-spinning shots and a boring ball flight. These hybrids come standard with Fujikura Speeder 865 shafts and feature the same Forged Hyper Speed Face Cup and adjustable OptiFit hosel as in the fairway woods. Lofts: 18°, 20°, 23°. Available January 16. $250 each.
