2014 Hotlist Fairway Woods: CALLAWAY BIG BERTHA

CALLAWAY BIG BERTHA

STREET PRICE: $269.99
LOFTS: 15, 18, 21 (adjustable)

TECH TALK: Faster, more consistent ball speed across the face is the goal of this redesigned Big Bertha fairway wood. The high-strength Carpenter 455 steel cupface goes through a five-step forging process to make it thinner. The result is more springlike effect. The crown is also thinner than last year's RAZR Fit Xtreme to produce a lower center of gravity (CG).

PLAYER COMMENTS:
L: "It has a mature look that harkens back to the Bertha heyday."
M: "You don't even have to make a perfect swing to get a perfect result."

HOT: The hosel allows for independent loft and lie adjustability, one of just two fairway woods that offer that.
NOT: The price. This is the most expensive Callaway fairway wood ever included in a Hot List.
