Big Bertha Alpha 815 Hybrids

The Big Bertha Alpha 815 Hybrid focuses on a more penetrating trajectory, ball speed and adjustability in a complete distance hybrid for better players.

Features

  • Ball Speed and Forgiveness All Over The Face: High speed at every impact location from a Forged Hyper Speed Face Cup.
  • Controlled Trajectory: Penetrating ball flight and less spin are what you get from an Internal Standing Wave and Sole Weighting that move the CG low and forward.
  • Compact Head Shape With Less Offset: The compact shape and rounded half pear toe profile provide a look that many players prefer.
  • OptiFit Adjustability: 8-Way adjustability for loft and lie angle

Reviews

Small is the new awesome!
Looks like Callaway threw everything they had into this club to make a successful product. To me I feel like they are looking to please that better player looking for the smaller hybrid that still has workability. The Alpha 815 model does just that, the smaller head size promotes moving the ball with a lower ball flight in order to achieve maximum results. The club has a heavier feeling that lets you feel like you can put club to ball in a hurry to get max distance. Callaway also added the adjustability to the hybrid allowing you to make changes based on the course you are playing. This is really a hybrid that is based towards the better player, because Callaway also added the speeder shaft to promote the lower ball flight. After getting this out on the course I was able to try it out of many different lies and it does perform. There is nice clean contact out of both the rough and fairway, and a bonus is it acts like a iron out of the sand with the smaller profile. I am very impressed.

The Takeaway

The Big Bertha Alpha 815 sort of reminded me of the XR Pro shape. A smaller, tapered head that features a higher, box-shaped toe that tapers off towards the heel area, but with less offset. This is a very successful shape used by Callaway, especially with lower handicap players. It also features their OptiFit system and a low, forward sole weight to reduce spin. The head is a clean, all-black colorway and sets up to the ball very square.

Who's It For?

Callaway has the lower to mid-lower handicap player in mind, to even a mid-level handicap that might have issues hooking their hybrids. The shape, design and features also seem to really fit the needs of the more “techie-type” players.

Final Take

Like the XR Pro, I had huge issues with the 815 Alpha Big Bertha. With the 23-degree head that I tried, my spin rate was too high and created a very high launch angle. As a result, my distance suffered greatly. Much like the distance control, my dispersion was very good, however the distance was too close to the distance of my 5 iron for my liking. I also got the same feeling that the club really sat upright in my hands like the XR Pro version. My guess is that I needed more time dialing this head in via the OptiFit system to see better results.
