So far they’re holding the line on regular Bertha, but even that must be tenuous by now given the economic realities. Along the way I heard some pretty substantial performance claims (none directly from Callaway), but at no point did I actually see a photo of the damn thing. Lots going on with it, but it all does come down to the shaft. With a total head weight under 200 grams, Big Bertha should prove versatile enough to work with shafts in a variety of lengths and weights, without becoming unwieldy.

A couple of different strategies exist when it comes to clearing inventory — do nothing and allow sales to clear it out while your new product waits in the wings (that may take a while); Cut the price to clear inventory more quickly so you time the introduction of new product more precisely, knowing that when the new product is introduced, the old product will languish.

Perhaps the last noteworthy bit about the Big Bertha (and Big Bertha Alpha) is that instead of a familiar black crown, both are outfitted with midnight blue paint. They’re adjustable (same hosel system as the driver), and they share X2 Hot’s face technology. Classic companies do not do that like Wilson Staff, or Hogan Apex, Cleveland Classic, to name a few. The numbers looked very similar in the cage – 105 Club Head Speed, 12.5 degree trajectory, spin under 3000 (can’t remember the exact number) 280 yards.

Allowing for the fact that this is just one guy, the preliminary evidence suggests that Callaway might actually be telling the truth of about this Gravity Core thing. It is not new technology. You may have noticed that, as they did last season, Callaway is once again using premium shaft offerings in their drivers. I am open to input. Cependant, comme pour les têtes et les shafts, si les grips sont de mauvaises conditions, cela influencera le prix. That new product (Bertha/BB Alpha) was still 6 months away. Lot’s of comments by wiseguys who have not tried the club. I hit the new Bertha and Alpha drivers yesterday at a demo day with full Trackman data capture and I first have to say I have never owned a Callaway driver and have not been much of a fan of their drivers. It actually changes the ballflight when adjusting it. Even if we accept that nothing can be done to improve ball speed (false); if you can launch higher with lower spin, you create more distance, and you do so outside the confines of the USGA’s test. Callaway’s research indicates that guys with handicaps of 10 or more don’t always hit the center of the face, and Big Bertha, says Callaway, can help mitigate that particular problem.

TM started it, Callaway has followed and others. Today’s drivers are significantly better at maintaining ball speed on off center hits, and the area where near-max COR/CT is maintained is continuing to improve. Okay, so the idea behind the driver is good and the concept as well. I have never particularly liked Callaway, but have now bag’ed the Alpha. It’s got adjustable/moveable weights like the RAZR Fit and RAZR Fit Xtreme (promotes a draw or fade bias and/or alters swing weight), and oh by the way, it’s got a Gravity Core.

This isn’t to clear out inventory…it’s the best shot to sell stagnant product (like when they cut prices on X2 Hot), and try to jumpstart a market that may not exist (for anyone) and remain competitive with TaylorMade. This season, Callaway and TaylorMade crawled in the mud together. You don’t clear inventory unless you have excess inventory.

We’re already 23 pages deep in a Callaway Big Bertha thread in our forums, where members are discussing the much rumored “Big Bertha” drivers Callaway is said to be releasing for the 2014 season. I’d wager that in the next 24 months, Callaway is going to release more new product than anyone else in golf – perhaps more than anyone in golf has ever released. The reason why I brought that point up: the part of your article I quoted regarding ‘no price drop’ seemed like an outrageous claim and pure marketing speak (that couldn’t really be true). Very fair and balanced article and if I am representative of next year’s buyer you are spot on. If the big bertha series were 100.00 less i think the golf consumer would buy it but at those prices it will be a hard sell. I have now got both Big Bertha and Big Bertha Alpha Nd some extra shafts to tinker with and I must say WOW !

So, shafts. lulebaro It’s the one driver that’s unlike anything else we’ve seen before, and unlike anything else on the shelves next to it. Or the golf course.

New models were soon released on the market and prices were dumped for BB and BBA. $349-379 seems to be the high point. The fairway grass was a little long but I hit almost every ball around 260 with a slight push to the right.

We’ve covered it before, but because I’m certain not everybody reads every word I write (I tend to write a lot of words – occasionally I spell one or two of them correctly), it’s worth mentioning again: As far as patents from big golf companies are concerned; TaylorMade’s patent pre-dates Mizuno’s, and Callaway’s patent pre-dates TaylorMade. There are only two variables that make the ball go longer a higher swing speed and a higher CT.

Very few (TaylorMade, Titleist, and PING) can get away with it even once. No doubt something new is coming (they have to do something), but the probability is an Optiforce replacement (there’s a really interesting patent for a driver with a rear spoiler that could become reality soon), but if it’s an Alpha replacement, it looks exceptionally bad for Callaway. Didn’t have to be a prophet to predict what is happening. (Yes I got off topic there) LOL. I have never had an adjustable driver until the Optiforce. Every driver out there is manufactured under specs because driver can change with heat and use. The $500 would be better spent on lessons and fittings. Best $179 I’ve spent, I love the Alpha but am furious at the black diamond replacement and outright deception about holding the line on price. Sorry cally, you did it to yourselves and I have been a fan for a long time. Please remember this: All these new Drivers ALL go the same distance…The USGA will ban the longest driver…. Callaway is a marketeer.

Somebody typed this story into a forum once…somebody else repeated it, and the myth that the USGA’s CT limitation equates to a firm distance limitation was born. But at $500???? This club line will appeal to Callaway fan-boys and the handful of saps who believe everything a 23-year-old big box golf clerk will tell them. I loved my old 02 Big Berthas and hated my old Apex, why use an old Hogan name ? Now, to actually get people to listen would be another story. Strongly doubt that. . At first I didn’t that CG screw made any difference, but it does I hit the alpha with the weight in different positions and there a noticeable change in ball flight and spin that I could see and according to my Flightscope the numbers significantly different as well as accuracy.

I’m hearing admittedly unsubstantiated stories that major retail accounts (GolfSmith, Dick’s, etc.) The major two brands they make good products, but they are not in the business to really help amateurs, they are in the business to sell clubs, which is fine. To quote one of Tony’s earlier posts on the subject “A $500 driver with a 6 month shelf life isn’t going to sit well with even the most rabid Callaway fanboy”. For anybody who doesn’t always hit the center of the face (and that’s everybody), this means a driver that produces more average distance than those of just a few years ago. Watch . Callaway should have priced it at $399 and tried the game of “holding the price.” That $500 price tag will teach many golfers that they can actually make due with their 2013 equipment and take a few lessons instead.
