This Callaway Big Bertha Driver Review will focus on the REVA Women’s Big Bertha.
You may be thinking that because it is called “Big Bertha”, it’s the same as that designed for men.
You would be wrong.
The REVA in this driver’s name is short for “REV-A-LUTION”.
Callaway has based the design of this range of clubs on the feedback from more than a thousand female golfers.
It may bear the same name, but it is entirely different.
We will explain all.
Technology Of The Callaway Big Bertha Driver – REVA.
Most of us girls have slower swing speeds than our male counterparts. Therefore, Callaway studied and reviewed the needs of female golfers when designing this driver.
The technology incorporated into this driver has made it lighter and stronger, and its focus is to give greater loft and distance to our tee shots.
Here are some of the features and benefits:
- The shape and built-in draw bias included in the club head will ensure a long and straight flight.
- Artificial Intelligence (AI) is incorporated into the Flash Face to give a faster, straighter ball even when hit off-center.
- Along with this, the exceptionally strong material around the club head promotes great forgiveness and improved spin tendency.
- Like its male partner, this driver includes Jailbreak technology so that there is a higher Moment of Inertia, leading to more forgiveness.
- This driver and the REVA range of clubs comes in both Right and Left Handed models.
- And finally, it features the Callaway RCH 40 graphite shaft, for greater flexibility and speed.
Shaft And Loft Choices
The specification chart for this driver indicates that you can choose your loft and shaft.
Loft choices are either 10.5˚ or 12.5˚ and Callaway specifications indicate they are both adjustable. However, they do not indicate to what degree they are adjustable.
You can either choose the lighter or heavier graphite shaft – Callaway RCH 40 or RCH 50. Your choice should depend upon your swing speed.
If you have a fairly slow swing speed you should definitely choose the RCH 40. This will give you more flexibility and better impact with the golf ball.
Are You A Slicer?
Learning to drive the golf ball straight and true can be a challenging task. Many of us have a tendency to slice the ball so that it veers off to the right.
If this is you, then the Callaway Big Bertha REVA Driver is definitely the driver you should consider.
The club head has been specifically engineered with an internal draw bias which will effectively straighten your slice.
In addition to this, it has an ultra-low forward Center of Gravity to reduce spin. This will ultimately give you greater distance and a more consistent ball flight.
If you consistently slice the ball off the tee, you may also do well with the Cobra Women’s Air-X Offset Driver. Check here for more information.
After all, aren’t we all looking for a great tee shot?
Five Reasons Why You Should Get A New Driver.
There are a few reasons why you should consider buying a new Driver.
Here are five of them.
- You’ve had your current set of golf clubs for a decade and have been using the driver included with the starter set ever since,
- Worse still, you’ve been using a men’s driver (maybe your partner’s hand-me-down) because you thought it would get you a better tee shot.
- Your tee shots are okay, but you’d like to drive longer, straighter shots.
- Perhaps you’ve been using a driver with “ladies flex”, but your swing speed demands a stronger shaft.
- Modern drivers incorporate the latest technology and research related to golfers who are women.
So, if any of the above points represent your current situation, now is the time to think about getting a new Driver.

More Thoughts On This Callaway Big Bertha Driver Review.
In the United States alone, there are approximately six million female golfers. This represents 25% of all US golfers.
Women are the fastest growing group among golfers.
Here is an article that indicates similar statistics for the United Kingdom.
It stands to reason, therefore, that golf equipment manufacturers are now producing equipment to meet our needs.
Before developing the REVA line of golf clubs, Callaway conducted extensive research among female golfers.
This led to technological developments specifically aimed at providing us girls with just the right equipment to play our best golf.
So, in this Callaway Big Bertha Driver Review, we have talked about the excellent technology incorporated into this particular golf club.
In addition to the Driver, there is a complete range of REVA clubs. This includes a 3-wood, 5 & 6 hybrids, 7, 8, 9 irons, a pitching wedge and sand wedge.
You can also get some great blade or mallet putters in Callaway’s Odyssey range that will complete your set.
Golf Can Be A Family Affair.
For many of us, our husbands or partners have been playing golf for years. That may be what led us to try.
It is now up to us to keep the trend going and get our daughters involved in the game of golf.
Family golf weekends can become a normal activity when spouses and children get together to play.
Certainly, in the beginning, it can be more fun by not scoring – just enjoying the family time together and having fun on the golf course.
Rick has been playing for more than 50 years without scoring and my own golf journey is nearing 20 years, in the same way.
What are you waiting for?
Get your family involved today and get golfing!
6 thoughts on “Callaway Big Bertha Driver Review – REVA.”
This is great to find golf clubs that are actually specifically designed for lady golfers. So kudos to Callaway for doing their research and listening to what women want and need when choosing their golf clubs.
Although I am only a beginner golfer, the REVA range seems to be incorporating innovative technology, that might help me in my game. You mention that if one has a slow swing speed, it is best to choose the Callaway RCH 40. But would it be suitable for a short woman? I am just over five foot and find many golf clubs are too long for me, so it would be helpful to know. Thank you
Hello Liné, Thanks for your comments on my blog post about the Callaway Big Bertha REVA Driver. The RCH 40 applies to the weight of the shaft 9i.e. 40 grams). The Driver is the club with the longest shaft in any golf bag.
Many of the clubs made for women come in standard, long and short shaft lengths, including this Callaway range. Here are the heights appropriate for each size. Short: 5’1″ or shorter, Standard: 5’2″ – 5’7″, Long: 5’8″ and taller. Hope this helps. Jenni.
Thank you for sharing your review on the Big Bertha!
As someone whos been playing golf since i was a teen, i know a thing or 2 about drivers.
Finding golf clubs that are truly created with beginner golfers in mind is fantastic.
So props to Callaway for doing their homework and paying attention to what ladies need and want in golf equipment.
The REVA line appears to be utilizing cutting-edge technology that could improve my game.
Lorenz, Thanks so much for your comment on my article about the Callaway Big Bertha REVA driver. I’m glad you found it useful, and I agree that it was a great advantage for Callaway to have listened to what we female golfers want in our clubs. Best wishes, Jenni
My wife fell in love with golfing when she was 55. She had not played a game until she agreed to play in a chartable golf tournament. Suddenly, It was her favorite past time. She would go out on the course using an old set of her uncle’s with a huge smile on her face! Reading this article and knowing our anniversary is near, I have read your recommendations and believe it would make a fantastic present for her. A golf club designed exclusively for ladies to dramatically improve their golf game is exactly what I need to surprise her. The Callaway Big Bertha Driver seems to be the perfect gift1 Thank you for your fantastic review.
Thanks so much for your comment on my Callaway Big Bertha REVA Driver Review. I didn’t start playing until I was over 60, so I can well understand your wife’s enthusiasm for the game. This driver would make a great anniversary gtift for a keen golfer. Thanks and regards. Jenni.
