Shoots in the 90s

Model Reviewed:Callaway Biggest Big Bertha

I used to use a relatively small driver at about 190cc. I was never ables to swing as hard as I could possibly can because there was a very small face on the driver meaning a smaller sweet-spot meaning I would put the ball in the woods, water, rough, etc. With that driver I hit about 250 yds when the ball went straight.
After using the new Big Bertha for only a day, I was able to just grip it and rip swinging my very hardest and the ball would still go straight. So what exactly has this club done to my distance? I drive the ball a whopping 300 yds consistently which always makes me one of the longest hitters in the foursome. It's great. Being able to get that extra 50yds, I have now lowered my score to an 88, best game of my life. I'll see how i shoot next time.

Model Reviewed:Biggest big bertha

My dad bought this driver about 4 years agow. When I firt played with it, I weren't able to hit a firm drive, but about 2 yeart ago I started to love it. My current swing speed is 113 mph, so the shaft was a little bit to flex for me, but the results were good. In the competition this year I hit the 275 meters reguraly. Unfortunately I hit my last ball with it on the drivingrange. The thing crashed into 2 pieces about 5 weeks ago, when one of my team members hit a great ball with it (but the driver wassen't stable anymore, so I was already testing new one's)
I think it was the best driver available for its time.

Model Reviewed:Biggest Big Bertha

My dad won this club in a tournament raffle. One of the worst clubs i have ever hit. This club was not forgiving at all. I used to hit no fairways and since switching to the launcher 460 have lowered my score by 15 storokes, into the 90's.

Model Reviewed:Big Bertha Titianium 454

I'm just getting back into golf after a 5 year hiatus. So I decided to research new clubs. I tested a few new drivers. Hands down the best is the BB Titanium 454. After the layoff I was not expecting much on the practice tee. What I got were the longest drives I have ever hit. The kind of bombs where after you hit it, you look around to see two things. First, am I dreaming and second, did anybody else see that? I highly recommend this club because if I can hit it this good after such a layoff, then with practice, hey who knows?

Shoots in the 70s

Model Reviewed:Biggest Big Bertha

I build clubs as a hobby, so a friend gives me his Callaway Biggest Big Bertha. It has a 6° loft, yes six degrees. Just for fun I remove the oem shaft (very poor) and replace it with UST's new Proforce 70 (ATR technology).The shaft allowed extra snap right at the tip with only a 3.5° torque rating. I have consistant shots over 300 yards now haha. The project was interesting.

Model Reviewed:Biggest Big Bertha

i did a lot of demoing this year, serching for THE driver for me. after trying just about everything i came across a steal for this driver a CGPO. it was a former tour van driver and was in perfect condition, $80 and it was mine. my driver search ended as soon as this thing arrived. its not the longest driver ive hit but it is consistanlty looong. when these came out for $600 and they named it the "biggest" i didnt give it a 2nd look, thought the name was dumb and i was paying $600 for a driver. all i can say now is, these are the best bargains out there as far as drivers go. one thing to note is that i use a high loft (12*) this thing hits as far as my 9* VFT but its all carry. it flies so far that ill actually lose sight of the ball in the air! sweet this thing is a definate keeper. also, ive had a few people snicker at the 12* loft while warming up at the first tee, they shut up when we walk out to out tee shots. it looks like i hit a long pop up but it just keeps carrying, past their drives! i cant say enough good about this club.might not be goot for slicers since the face is square. this is what led me to this club, its hard to find a good high loft driver without a closed face. cally hooked me up for sure. in the 3rd round played with this driver i shot a 69, my best round ever.5 for its used street valueand5 for being an easy to hit cannon.

Customer Service

the guys at CGPO are fantastic.

Model Reviewed:Callaway BBB 9*

I just reshaft with Harmon Tour Design FZS and love it. I've been very satisfied with the performance of this driver after reshafting with the HTD. I can launch 250+ and stay in the fairway I feel my game has improved by being able to hit fairways consistently. Confidence boost is always a plus playing this game, and the BBB has given me that with every shot off the tee box. For now this weapon has a home in my bag.

Great great great. Possibly the best driver I've ever used. I got it from my dad's friend (old guy). It's got a senior shortened shaft (i'm 6'2) and 11 degrees, but i can still crush the ball- dead straight. Great club, very workable.

I'm one of the few loyal Callaway fan as I own a few Callaway clubs: 1) Callaway BBB @ 2 - 9* loft with BBUL firm.2) Callaway GBB Warbird @ 3 - 8.5*, 9*, Duece with BBUL firm.3) Callaway BB Warbird - 3+,3,4,5 & 7 wood (RCH 96 shaft only) These are great and evergreen clubs. I've tested all the drivers in the market but still comes back to Callaway. Very forgiving and penetrating. However, I need to caution all golfer facing problem with the BBB shaft. Perhaps you may consider replacing with BBUL shafts.
