  • I got the Big Bertha Alpha 816 DBD the other day, and instantly fell in love. It's a standard length, and even though it's harder to hit than the V-series I used to play, it performs a lot better and has made me more consistent. The V-series gave me the feeling that I could rip it as hard as I could, and I could hit 290-300yd hooks. Due to the DBD's small sweet spot, it's forced me to slow my swing down to hit the center each time and I have gained 30-40 yards and it's going straight. I'd definitely not wanna get a driver I feel like I can rip after seeing how much the DBD has improved my driving, hope this helps some of you looking for more distance :)

  • Sounds awful. Glad to hear about the length, but the US version at retail will have 45.5" at stock – 44.5 is special order.

  • You know what would be nice, is all the people that comment on the length of their shaft, would also include how tall they are.

    haha. that sentence sounds awful.

    Seriously, what good is your input with out that info? If you are 5'8" and hitting a 44 incher, thats a lot different than being 6'2".

  • Finally – i really hope sub 45" shaft options become the norm for all companies. Disappointed with Ping's stock 45.75" offering in their G, for example.
    That said, a bit surprised that it feels THAT much shorter and friendlier to Mark who gets to hit all drivers on the market. It's only 0.5" shorter than titleist's 917 45", for example.

  • i had an inch shorter shaft in my driver for 2 seasons…actually improved my strike alot and i gained distance because of it…yes my best drives were 8-10 yards less than my previous bests but i hit thr middle more so my bad drives were much further than my previous bad 1's (and was able ro find my ball haha) after playing 2 seasons with the inch off i bought a new driver with the longer shaft and i was able to cobtrol it better my confidence with my driver was much higher and i got back my extra yards but still managed to keep my bad shots in play.

  • In the course video you showed here you had your aldila shaft in this driver and had your gc2 out what where those numbers? Once again custom fitting both shaft make and shaft length, are we not getting it n people?????

  • So what shaft and flex was used for the test? Remember we are seeing drivers being released now that arrive in stores with 2 or 3 'stock' shafts available, so I for one appreciate you noting in your reviews what shaft, length, and flex you are using. Thanks!
