What’s the Difference? Callaway Big Bertha V-Series, Alpha 815, and Double Black Diamond Drivers

Callaway has released three new drivers raising the question among golfers, which one should I play? Callaway has made the decision-making process easy for golfers by creating three totally different drivers which can fit into any player-type.

Well, which one is for you?  Let’s take a closer look…


Big Bertha V Series Driver

For players interested in the Callaway Big Bertha V Series driver, you’re looking to generate more clubhead speed to see an increase in distance.

This lightweight driver (290 grams) allows you to swing the club faster, resulting in higher ball speeds and more distance. Players with high – mid handicaps will benefit from the aerodynamic design, which helps reduce drag and also increase clubhead speed. Combine this with a strong, lightweight crown that repositions weight for a higher moment of inertia (MOI) – aka more forgiving. Don’t forget about Callaway’s Hyper Speed Face which increases ball speed on off-center hits.


Big Bertha Alpha 815 Driver

For players interested in the Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 815 driver, you’re seeking a low spinning driver to increase distance and forgiveness.

Players of all abilities and handicaps can take advantage of the multitude of adjustments and technologies implemented in this club. The 460cc clubhead has been elongated (front to back) and with the combination of a composite material crown and RMOTO clubface, weight can be repositioned low and back, creating ultimate forgiveness and distance. The 2nd generation Gravity Core has been improved so players can fine-tune their spin rates for optimal performance. This is a great driver for those that like to fine-tune their equipment.


Big Bertha Alpha 815 Double Black Diamond Driver

For players interested in the Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 815 Double Black Diamond driver, you’re seeking low spin rates and the ability to work the ball in both directions.

As the name indicates, this driver is for experts and high ball speed players. The 460cc clubhead has been designed to appear more compact and give the illusion that it’s a smaller clubhead in the address position, a feature better players are looking for. Also, the clubface is the deepest Callaway has ever produced, once again, a feature that better players prefer. With input from Tour players, this drivers’ design promotes extremely low spin while maintaining a higher MOI than most “expert” drivers. The result of this technology is a driver that is workable and #BerthaLong. With multiple premium shafts offered as stock options and a full range of adjustability, players can create a setup that maximizes their game and potential.


Now that you have an understanding of what driver best suits your game, see what we have to say about the Callaway Big Bertha V Series driver or the Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 815 drivers.
