Callaway Drivers Overview
It wasn’t the first of its kind, but Callaway’s original Big Bertha was like the Big Bang for metal drivers. The club’s popularity led to an explosion of the category – and all but finished off the era of wooden drivers.
Three decades later, Callaway drivers are actually much bigger than the first Big Bertha, whose clubhead measured a mere 190 cubic centimeters (compared to today’s 460cc monsters). They’re a lot better too, at least where technology is concerned. The company, founded by clubmaking legend Eli Callaway, continues to pace the industry for innovative design and engineering.
Case in point: The Callaway Epic Flash driver, introduced in 2019, was the first in golf to use artificial intelligence (AI) in the design process.
Recent years have seen other firsts as well, such as Jailbreak technology in the crowns of Callaway drivers. The company, though, remains aware of its past. Callaway continues to leverage the Big Bertha name with products like the Big Bertha 21 driver – a full 30 years after the original burst onto the scene.
Let’s run down Callaway’s latest driver models, available new or used here at GlobalGolf:
Callaway Mavrik Drivers (2020)
After the success of its Epic Flash models, Callaway once again turned to AI in crafting the
Mavrik driver lineup
– the Mavrik, Mavrik Max and Mavrik Sub Zero. Each club features Flash Face SS20 and Jailbreak technology (a pair of distance-boosting bars inside the clubhead).
The major differences between the three Mavrik drivers? Trajectory. The Mavrik is built for a medium ball flight, while the Mavrik Max launches higher and the Sub Zero lower. All three feature Callaway’s adjustable Optifit hosel.
Callaway Epic Flash Drivers (2019)
is the first Callaway driver to utilize Flash Face design, a series of heel-to-toe ripples which juice ball speeds near the club’s center. Jailbreak technology is included, too, along with a moveable, 16-gram weight that can be placed to promote a draw, fade or neutral ball flight. Models include the Epic Flash, Epic Flash Sub Zero and Epic Flash Star drivers.
Callaway Rogue Drivers (2018)
Callaway didn’t exactly go rogue here, but the company did produce yet another winner with this
. Internal Jailbreak bars plus X-Face VFT (Variable Face Technology) delivered increased distance over previous models, while a new crown design and head shape boosted moment of inertia (MOI) for greater accuracy.
