This is the Callaway Big Bertha Fusion.
00:03
Callaway's known for decades
00:05
that titanium's a really good material
00:09
for a fast flexing face, but carbon composite
00:12
is way better at saving weight.
00:17
So what they've done here is limit the amount of titanium
00:20
and use a lot more carbon composite
00:23
so that you can save weight
00:25
and push it to the extremes.
00:26
Why do you want to push it to the extremes?
00:28
That makes a forgiving driver.
00:30
This is, in fact, the most forgiving driver
00:32
in Callaway's history.
00:34
What it's done is not only increased stability
00:38
in this heel-toe direction,
00:40
but it's improved stability up-down as well,
00:43
so essentially, wherever you hit it on the face here,
00:46
you're going to get very similar performance.
00:49
One other secret benefit of this driver,
00:51
it comes in a 44 and a half inch option as well,
00:55
so you can better fit to players
00:57
who prefer shorter shaft for more accuracy and control.
01:00
Standard length is 45 and a half inches.
01:03
This is impressive technological effort from Callaway
01:06
using graphite and a carbon composite in the sole and crown
01:09
to get the most out of multiple materials
01:12
for a very stable driver.
01:14
It's gold on the Hot List,
01:15
four and a half stars in performance,
01:17
and four and a half stars in weight.
