Callaway Big Bertha Fusion
Our Review:The key to making an easy-to-hit driver is finding ways to mix lighter materials with heavier ones. The weight saved can be moved to the perimeter for better forgiveness. Callaway has done that with a driver whose shape comprises multiple pieces of light carbon composite, including a crown made from a material that’s 65-percent lighter than titanium. In fact, aside from the flexible titanium face, the driver’s body is skeletal sections of titanium connected by carbon-composite panels. It makes for the most stable driver in Callaway’s history. Need more help? A 44½-inch version (one inch shorter than standard) is also available.
Specs: 9, 10.5, 13.5 (adjustable +2/-1)

lowThe construction is unorthodox, but I quickly forgot about that thanks to the elusive combo of straight and long.
midThe numbers I get on the launch monitor are consistent no matter where I hit it on the face.
midSorry, I judged her by her looks. And I was wrong. Really consistent. The sound was average but the ball stayed on its flight path for days. Penetrating. Easy to swing.
highSoft impact, but the ball still jumps off the face.
highGets the ball in the air in a hurry. Overall just a solid performer.
