The Big Bertha 3-wood is a part of a fairway wood set that was a continuation of the Big Bertha series introduced in 1991. This line was named after the Big Bertha cannons that were used by the Germans during World War I. These cannons were famous for their distance and accuracy.
The Big Bertha 3-wood clubhead is made of stainless steel and has a larger head than previous versions and the original Big Bertha driver. It is designed to provide a larger hitting area for effective shots and is also has a longer face. This is intended to improve the forgiveness of the club as well as the performance.
All Big Bertha 3-woods have a 16-degree angle of loft and a 56-degree angle of lie. This specific club has a swing weight that is rated at D4. Swing weights will vary depending on the type of shaft. Other fairway woods available in the Big Bertha line include the 5-wood, the 7-wood and the 9-wood.
The stainless steel shaft came in only one flex, which is why it is called uniflex. The shaft is 42.5 inches long and weighs 112 grams. It has a low torque and a mid-range kickpoint, which is the area on the shaft that exhibits the greatest amount of flex. The Big Bertha 3-woods also are available with the Big Bertha Fairway Shafts, which can have light flex, regular flex and stiff flex.
