Callaway Golf’s Big Bertha V series weighs 290 grams

By: August 13, 2014

Last summer when I talked about the novelties of FT Optiforce drivers and fairway woods, I could not tell the exact weight of FT Optiforce drivers just approximately (under 300 grams).

At this time when Callaway Golf is launching next week its Big Bertha V Series Driver (and complementary Big Bertha V Series Fairway Wood) I can tell you that the new driver weighs only 290 grams.

Callaway is promosing that the superlight weight will help to maximize distance, in addition to the refined components and OptiFit adjustability. This driver offers OptiFit Technology with a combination of 8 different loft (-1, S, +1, +2) and lie angles (Draw or Neutral) to choose from.

For those who are not following Callaway Golf's product development, the Optifit adjustability was available in FT Optiforce drivers and fairway woods as well.

In the photo below we can see the aerodynamic shaping of the head of the driver that also accelerate the speed of the golf ball.

What I really like in Big Bertha V Series is that you can hit it all over the face and it’s still going to be long and accurate off the tee.


Here are the technical specs:

  • Big Bertha V Series is available in , 10.5° and 13.5° HT options. Each one is 45.5” with a 460cc head, the has a Speeder 565 Shaft and the 10.5° and 13.5° HT have 42 gram Mitsubishi Bassara shaft.

These drivers are available at retail August 22 for $399. The V Series Fairway Woods (3, 5, 7 and 9) and Heavenwood are also available at retail August 22, and are $249 each.
