Callaway Big Bertha Fusion Driver – Review

Nailing that perfect fairway shot, maximizing distance, and maintaining a consistent golf swing—it’s an art, and having the right equipment can make all the difference.

Enter the game-changing Callaway Big Bertha Fusion Driver, a true ally for golfers seeking forgiveness and an extra boost off the tee. Allow me to share some insights into this remarkable piece of golfing innovation.

In the challenging world of golf, where practice time is often a luxury, having the right gear can be a game-changer. Callaway Golf, a brand synonymous with excellence, invests substantial time and resources in crafting equipment that not only meets but exceeds the expectations of golfers across all skill levels, from novices to seasoned pros.

Now, let’s delve into the groundbreaking features of the Callaway Fusion Driver—innovation at its finest, designed with forgiveness in mind. This isn’t just a driver; it’s a strategic tool to enhance your game on the golf course.

Technological Features

Titanium Exo Cage

The body of this driver is made up of a thing they call the Titanium Exo Cage. This is a very innovative way of making the driver well performing and durable. The entire driver head is not all Titanium. It is mixed with some other materials to create an ultra-lightweight head.

It incorporates a titanium Exo-Cage with a triaxial carbon crown and sole. This construction aims to enhance forgiveness, increase ball speed, and improve stability.

Triaxial Carbon Crown

The Fusion Driver head has a mixture of Titanium and Carbon. Carbon is used on the crown and two spots on the sole. This material is 35% lighter than titanium and also thinner than some of the previous composite drivers. Basically, it frees up weight to create a centre of gravity lower and further back.

The combination of the Exo-Cage and triaxial carbon construction allows for weight redistribution, concentrating weight in specific areas of the driver head. This design helps to increase forgiveness on off-centre hits and improve the stability of the clubhead through impact.

Internal Weight Pads

The little weight that is located on the back of the sole of the Big Bertha Fusion Driver helps create a club with a higher MOI. This creates a larger sweet spot that will help with distance.

Triangular Head Shape

The Titanium Exo Cage along with the Triaxial Carbon has allowed Callaway to create a Triangular shaped driver much similar to the FT-IZ Callaway driver from six or seven years back. While setting up to the ball you can actually tell that the weight is low and back just by looking at the shape.

The Big Bertha Fusion Driver has an aerodynamic shape with a streamlined clubhead design. This helps to reduce drag during the swing and increase clubhead speed, potentially leading to greater distance and more efficient energy transfer.

Speedstep Crown

The Speedstep Crown has been used on previous Callaway Drivers and really works. It is basically a little step used on the crown of the club. This helps with airflow and promotes less drag, which will get through the wind a lot easier.

Two Stock Shafts and Lengths

Being a forgiving driver, shafts have been tried and tested to target golfers who need forgiveness and distance.

UST Recoil is a very lightweight option designed to get the ball in the air. The Diamana Red Shaft is a mid launch shaft and slightly heavier, designed for the slightly average to faster swing speeds.

3 Standard Loft Options

The drivers also come in the option of a length of 44.5 or 45.5 inches. Lofts are also available in left or right handed in 9 degrees, 10.5 and 13.5 degrees.

Callaway Optifit Hosel

The driver includes an adjustable OptiFit Hosel, which allows golfers to adjust the loft and lie angle of the club to fine-tune their ball flight and trajectory. This adjustability feature offers customization options to match individual swing characteristics and preferences.

The driver can also be adjusted as the hosel has been engineered to change loft and flight path. The driver can be adjusted one degree lower or two degrees higher to achieve the desired ball flight. A draw, neutral or fade bias can also be achieved.

Targeted at Which Golfer?

With an incredibly light club head and innovative shape, this type of driver will always be targeted at the higher handicap golfer who needs the forgiveness.

The Big Bertha Fusion Driver’s construction and design emphasize forgiveness and stability. Golfers who tend to have inconsistent ball striking or frequently hit shots off-center can benefit from the high MOI and forgiveness features of this driver.

Golfers can strike the golf ball on most areas of the face, and still gain positive feedback in terms of where the ball finishes and how much distance is achieved.

Golfers after a very forgiving driver should definitely consider the Big Bertha Fusion Option.

Creating a driver by saving a lot of weight in the head and completely redesigning a club head into something triangular is very innovative.

These weight savings will enhance ball speed and have helped create a driver that is easier to get in the air.

The adjustability of the driver allows golfers to optimise ball flight, but the driver can always be put back to neutral.

One of the most forgiving drivers on the market and a fantastic option if you are looking for a quality upgrade.

  1. Great article Chris. I really enjoyed reading your review on the driver. I am in the market for a new driver and I will definitely take your review into consideration. You have a great quality site and I wish you the best. Do you have any recommendations on how to fix my slice?


    • Hi Shawn

      Thanks for stopping by.

      Yes the Callaway Fusion Golf Driver is a very forgiving driver and provides optimum distance so It should be considered. 

      The slice is a very common bad shot for most amateur golfers. Provided you are gripping the club correctly, (check out the link) Basic Golf Lessons for Beginners. It can be as simple as fixing your swing path. If you are right handed player, simply hit practice shots with your left foot forward and right foot back. This encourages an inside to outside swing path, which is what is needed to hit a draw. Just make half swings to get a feel for it. With a bit of repetition you will start hitting draws. 

      It’s all practice!!!



  2. Awesome article review on the Callaway Big Bertha Driver! I was very on the fence about if I should get this driver or not. Your article definitely made the process easier in my mind.

I wish you the best and good luck with your future endeavors!

  3. I’ve been looking for a review on this driver! I have trouble getting a lot of air on the ball and I didn’t know if it was true what they said about this driver but according to you it is! Thanks for clearing that up. What wedges would you recommend that have equal balance throughout? I’ve been looking for one to upgrade my game.

    • Hi John

      I appreciate your comments.

      Yes, the Callaway Big Bertha Fusion Driver is a great option for distance, forgiveness and launch. The Callaway Mack Daddy range of wedges are a great option if you are after performance. Most of the bigger name golf companies all produce a Wedges that perform really well.

      Happy golfing.
