Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 816 Fairway Wood Expert Review
Written By: Bob Gomavitz
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.
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.
