The Callaway Big Bertha V Series 3 Wood is all about power and velocity, and is part of the new V series fairway wood line. Made with lightweight materials with an aerodynamic design, Callaway has made this all new line of Big Bertha fairway woods faster than ever before. The Callaway Big Bertha V Series Fairway Wood is perfect for the mid to high handicap golfer looking to improve their performance on the fairway.

Key Features

With a lightweight aerodynamic clubhead design, the Callaway Big Bertha V Series Fairway Wood is designed to give you the maximum amount of clubhead speed at impact, giving you greater distance on those long par 5 fairways.

The “Warbird” sole of the club helps golfer get their shots airborne with ease when in difficult lies.

Very easy to hit, and there is a wide range of lofts available to golfers who want to customize their clubs.

Design and Technology

Callaway likes to do simple math, don’t we all, and believes that the lighter the club the faster the club will go when swinging with the same amount of effort. Callaway was able to make this happen by creating a new aerodynamic design of the club head, a forged composite material in the crown, and a very light weight shaft. Callaway has also increased the size of the club face to spread the increased speed across a larger hitting area. Together this provides a golfer with more consistent distance and control.

The Callaway Big Bertha V Series Fairway Woods have also been designed to include the Modern Warbird Soleplate. This Modern Soleplate design greatly increases the versatility of the club by carving out both sides of the sole, which helps to reduce drag when hitting on the grass. Callaway has also been able to increase the launch angle of the club, and now golfers can get the ball up in the air even easier than before. Especially in situations where the impact on the ball is low on the club face. As you can see, the Callaway Big Bertha V Series Fairway Woods have been built to maximize the speed of the club, something that can help all gofers hit the further down the fairway.


  • Light club head plays great off the tee and other lies
  • Very forgiving club that gives you lots of help across the face
  • Made for distance this club will give you plenty of yardage


  • The club is basic in design which can look a little dated
  • The head is shiny for players who prefer more of a matte finish
  • The head is not the largest which can be a problem for golfers

Our Experience

The Callaway Big Bertha V Series fairway woods are light and easy to hit, providing excellent performance and versatility. 

The Modern Warbird Soleplate reduces drag and increases versatility, helping golfers who struggle with other fairway woods. The V Series is Callaway's most forgiving Big Bertha fairway wood yet, allowing for shots hit across the face to still launch well.

The ultralight design boosts club head speed for longer shots off the tee and turf. Callaway offers the V Series in a wide range of lofts - 3, 5, 7, and 9 woods, plus the versatile Heavenwood - allowing golfers to customize their set.

At address, the V Series has a traditional, no-frills look with a medium-sized footprint and simple alignment aid. The sound at impact is muted with a slight metallic character, providing good feedback.
