How Much Have Drivers Improved in the Last 20 Years? | Callaway Big Bertha Warbird vs Mavrik

Welcome back to the channel! In today's video I will be comparing the 22 year old Callaway Big Bertha Warbird driver to my 2020 Callaway Mavrik driver to see how much driver technology has improved in the last 20 years. I will be testing these driver on our ES14 launch monitor and Rapsodo R-Motion simulation. Please click this link to subscribe: Thanks ?

  1. Hartling Bros, yes good review. Quality and presicion are so much better now plus length of shaft. Also feel and looks.
    Keep up the good work.
    Thank you.

  2. Steel shaft v Carbon ? I've seen countless reviews like this on Youtube. Where it fails is the ball. You would need a brand new ball made with the same 22 years ago technology. The balls are made to fit the drivers.
    I see reviews comparing wooden clubs – you need a Balata ball with the right compression to compare. Can't be done. I go to courses I played 40 years ago with wooden clubs and Balata balls and with the modern drivers and 3 piece balls I am way short with them but my iron distances are the same….A dead flat 310 yds short par 4, I used to put the ball through the back with wooden clubs, I am 30 to 40 yds short with a modern Driver. Modern drivers also launch the ball 2 to 3 times higher the parabola of flight is totally different. I play Links course here in Scotland and the old wooden drivers and balls went for miles in a dry summer. Tiger Woods won The Open at Royal Birkdale and never hit a Driver in 4 rounds. He played irons off the tee to have the same flight pattern and control as a wooden driver. Hitting modern drivers on Links courses on a windy day is a ball losing marathon.

  3. 195cc? I remember 150cc and 41 inch shafts. Used to hit driver, 3 wood to the opening hole of 445 yards and still be short. When I left the club I was off 5 and by that time with clubs and balls improvement I used to hit driver, 6 iron as an average. From 1990 to 2010 I gained 60 yards on my drive.

  4. That old War Bird is stainless steel no? The Great Big Bertha came out next and it was made of the Ruger Titanium. Then came the infamous Biggest Big Bertha (which my mom bought for $500). Would be interesting to see if there's a discernible difference between the War Bird and the Ruger.
