Golf Australia Express : February 2014
AFTER a long layoff, Callaway's Big Bertha is finally back on the shelves. And as one of the most influential Big Dogs in the game's history, we're pretty sure this is a 'can't miss' release for the company. Featuring a new look and some added whizbang adjustability, Bertha is ballsier than ever. On the surface, we love this club, from it's modern look to its extreme adjustability. Believe it or not, a Tour version release— 'Bertha Alpha'—looks even better. Boom. IF GOLF was a literal game, the latest driver offering from Ping would have you striping it in no time. The release of the i25 could prove to be a big deal for Ping, who has gone for a bolder look than we're used to from the driver giant. We're tipping the new racing stripes decal on the crown of the i25 will divide opinion among your foursome. We're almost certain the performance will not. Definitely one for the big bombers. ARGUABLY the best modern driver Mizuno has produced, the aptly named JPX-EZ is also eas-y to swing. Released late last year, this driver is for the serious golfer who loves a subtle, sleek look at address. The kind of golfer who lets results—rather than looks alone—get the job done. Just wait till you feel the ball of the face. Oh, and the sound...ahh! Yep, it has taken them a while to get it right, but Mizuno had smashed the proverbial nail on the head with the JPX-EZ. This thing will have a legion of lovers for sure. Three thumbs up. WHEN it comes to standing out in a crowd, full points go to Nike for its VRS Covert 2.0. The second instalment of the proudly red-crowned Covert driver is definitely more visually appealing than the original, while a redesigned cavity using some new fandangled technology puts this year's version right in the mix of the top Big Dog releases for 2014. Rarely is the sequel better than the original, but—having copped plenty of criticism last year—Nike has now produced an absolute cracker second time around. Respect.
