The Company has announced the introduction of next-generation Big Bertha Stainless Steel Irons, said to be the most user-friendly stainless steel irons the Company has ever made. Callaway Golf engineers have enhanced the new Big Bertha Irons with Notch Weighting Technology for increased forgiveness and stability that golfers of all skill levels can enjoy. The new Big Bertha Irons are expected to ship to retail accounts next month, joining the Hawk Eye VFT Tungsten Injected Titanium Irons and Steelhead X-16 Stainless Steel Irons in the Company’s irons product line.
“Big Bertha Irons have always been built for forgiveness, starting with the originals that were introduced in 1994,” said Ron Drapeau, chairman and CEO of Callaway Golf. “This new, next-generation line of Big Bertha Irons takes this heritage of forgiveness even further by incorporating the Notch Weighting Technology first utilized in our Steelhead X-16 Irons. This will help golfers of all skill levels enjoy more pleasing shots more often – even on less-than-perfect swings.”
The new Big Bertha Stainless Steel Irons will carry a suggested retail price of £749 for a set of nine irons with one of Callaway Golf’s new graphite shafts – including the RCH 75i in Light, Regular and Firm flexes, the RCH 85i in Strong flex and the Ladies Gems 65i graphite shafts – or £649 for a set of nine irons with Constant Weight Uniflex steel shafts by True Temper. All Big Bertha Irons and Wedges are available in right-handed and left-handed versions.
