Callaway has revamped its popular Big Bertha irons and hybrids for 2019 - available from March 1 - featuring ground-breaking technologies to deliver faster ball speed and easy launch.




The Suspended Energy Core is the engine of the new Big Bertha Irons; a construction never before achieved in a golf club, and designed to deliver easy launch; long consistent distance; and incredible sound and feel.

It starts with a Metal Injection Molded (MIM’d) Tungsten Floating Weight suspended within Callaway’s proprietary Urethane Microsphere material. Suspending the floating weight allows the Centre of Gravity to be positioned deeper in the head, promoting higher launch.

Then a new thinner and faster 360 Face Cup, boasting a shallow, flexible rim around the perimeter of the face, perfectly combines with the high-launch characteristics fuelled from the Suspended Energy Core to deliver super-long ball flights.

A Smoked PVD Finish complements the clean Big Bertha Iron look, and new Super Soft/Light Recoil ESX graphite and KBS Max 90 steel shafts and Lamkin S5 Genesis Grips complete the high performance package.

"Golfers can enjoy distance-enhancing launch conditions we’ve never been able to achieve before in a set of irons, that still remain very easy to hit," said Callaway's head of R&D, Dr. Alan Hocknell. "It is an unbelievable performance combination that has earned them the right to be called Big Bertha."
