Big Bertha Alpha 816 Fairway Wood

Speed and Adjustability.


High Ball Speed From Cup Face Technology

Good players already generate high ball speeds, and the Forged Hyper Speed Face Cup will generate ball speed on center and off-center shots with this fairway wood.

Tour Preferred CG Positions

Move the adjustable weights (3g and 16g) for the ball flight you want to play. When you want to lower spin put the weight forward, and when the weight is back you’ll have more forgiveness with higher launch. It can be a long option off the tee or a more playable club on approach shots - it all depends on how you want to use it.

OptiFit Hosel

The OptiFit hosel lets you choose from 8 different configurations to tune loft, lie and face angle. With the OptifFit hosel appropriately configured to the needs of each individual player, the result is a high launch angle and low spin-rate, the launch conditions that promote maximum distance.

Modern Shaping and Sole Design

A slightly larger head provides more MOI than you would expect out of an elite player’s fairway wood. The sole design provides control from a variety of lies. The matte black finish provides an uncluttered look at address.

Reviews

Bertha Forgives!
this is a really good wood and is very forgiving. Got it for a great price too.
Mini cannon!!!
By far the best fairway wood I've owned. Great from the tee or fairway. You will be all smiles when you out drive your opponents who used a driver. This thing is very, very long and accurate. Get one before they are gone!!!

The Takeaway

Callaway’s Cup Face Technology generates high ball speeds on center hits and off-center shots. Tour preferred CG positions are achieved by positioning the 3g and 16g weights front or back to lower spin or improve forgiveness. The weights can also be positioned for a longer option off the tee or more playable for approach shots into greens. A slightly larger modern shape and sole design to this head provides more MOI than you would expect out of an elite, players fairway wood. The sole design gives players control from a variety of lies. The matte black finish provides an uncluttered look at address.

Who's It For?

The Big Bertha Alpha 816 is suited towards stronger players and players with higher club head speeds who want the ability to maximize adjustability through face and lie adjustments as well as weight positioning that can produce a desired shot shape.

Final Take

Classic Callaway appearance from this fairway wood. The matte colorway is clean and simple with a very square look at address. The ball flight with the heavier weight forward produced a flatter, more penetrating ball flight. I found the head felt very solid and the strike provided enough feedback to the hands to know where on the face you hit your shot, with great workability too.
