CALLAWAY BIG BERTHA ERC II:
The son of the one that caused all the fuss. Paper-thin titanium face exceeds RCGA/USGA rules concerning springlike effect. Patented Variable Face Technology maximizes rebound at sweet spot. Available in right- and left-handed models.
CALLAWAY BIG BERTHA HAWKEYE:
Proprietary Variable Face Technology allows for thicker titanium face in centre of clubface, ultra-thin around edges, increasing ball speed to RCGA/USGA limits. Internal weight port is injected with molten metal, precisely locating centre of gravity.
CALLAWAY BIG BERTHA STEELHEAD III:
Latest incarnation of trend-setting Steelhead stainless-steel woods uses VFT technology to increase head size to 225cc, increasing depth of clubface while reducing thickness. New sole design is flatter in centre with greater radius in sides. Men's and women's models available, right- and left-handed.
CALLAWAY STEELHEAD III:
Women's driver comes in 12-degree loft to ease in getting ball airborne. Slightly larger head than Steelhead II model which means larger hitting area and more confidence at address.

For more women's clubs, see SCOREGolf For Women Magazine.
COBRA KING COBRA SS 350:
350cc beta-titanium, thin-faced head (.825 COR). Deep, wide hitting area. Low and back heel weight pad. Offset ideal for 10+ handicappers to counteract slice and increase trajectory and carry. Men's and women's models available, right- and left-handed.
EOS SHS X-20:
17-4 Super high-tensile steel 465 mixture. Oversized 310cc head, stainless-steel finish, 100 per cent graphite cross-wound shafts with high kick point for control. Men's and women's models available, right- and left-handed.
