Callaway Great Big Bertha.

In the 1990s, when Callaway launched the original Great Big Bertha driver, it became such a rage that close to 80 per cent of the Tour players put it in their bags.

The modern-day endorsement market wouldn’t let such a thing happen again, but the Carlsbadbased equipment giants believe the revived Great Big Bertha will create a similar excitement in the much bigger, and much more important, segment of casual golfers.

In a month in which their rivals TaylorMade launched their own new drivers, Callaway is banking on a couple of features, which they believe will make all the difference.

Callaway believes the new Great Big Bertha is their fastest, most forgiving and distanceenhancing product the company has ever designed. The club has a thinner face because of their patented R*Moto technology, which means even off-centred hits have higher ball speeds, and thus greater distance.

The second feature that makes Great Big Bertha completely different from TaylorMade’s M1 is the Adjustable Perimeter Weighting, which, as the name suggests, is a sliding 10g weight along the perimeter of the club. Changes in the settings lead to more draw, which adds to the distance.

Further customisation of the club is possible through an Optifit hosel, which has eight configurations that can change the loft, lie and face angle of the club. stand out from the rest Callaway have also launched the Big Bertha Alpha 816 Double Black Diamond driver, which is suited for the more accomplished players. 

The Big Bertha Alpha 816DD features new Dual Gravity Core Chambers They can use the left and right chambers to promote better draw, or a more neutral ball flight, and taking the Gravity core up or down will change the Moment of Inertia and hence alter the ball speed and distance.

Both the drivers will be complemented with the launch of fairway woods in both series.

I tried out the two drivers at Callaway’s fitting centre at Al Badia Golf Club, and despite the fact that I was completely rusty from a long layoff, the clubs seemed to be doing their job extremely well. The one thing that stood out for me is how good a couple of shots, which I hit almost from the hosel portion, turned out to be. Remarkably, I seemed to have better results with the 816DD.

The Trackman clearly showed that my ball spin rate was a lot lower, which is sure to add to my distance.

We rate it: 9 out of 10: I think forgiveness is definitely the biggest USP of this club. Whatever they have done to the face, is clearly working well. 
Where to Buy: At all Golf House outlets and pro shops 
Price: Great Big Bertha will retail for Dh1,995, while the Big Bertha Alpha 816DD will cost Dh2,295.

Reebok's yoga apparel.

It’s been a couple of years now since Reebok first collaborated with Tara Stiles, their global ambassador and yoga guru of Deepak Chopra, to launch a superb line of yoga apparel. 

I think many people associate Reebok with fitness, but their involvement in the yoga world is perhaps less known. I was recently reminded of this fact at Reebok’s Yoga at The Palace event where Linda Chambers Chochrane, Reebok Les Mills yoga master trainer for the Middle East, put us through our paces.

It gave me an opportunity to test their yoga clothes performance and see how the different styles looked in action.

Former model Tara Stiles and the other designers involved with the collection wanted to get away from the usual yoga uniform of black leggings and create a line of clothing that was fun and colourful as well as stylish and functional, both on and off the mat.

This season’s collection continues that theme, drawing inspiration from retreats – check out the bold, scenic mountain landscape leggings.

Here is a round-up of my favourite Tried & Tested items:-

Leggings

All the leggings feature PlayDry polyester elastane interlock technology to help keep you dry and freshthroughout your workout so that you can stay focused. The flat lock stitching reduces the risk of chafing and the wide elastic waistband gives a snug but comfortable fit. Price: Dh195 

Shorts

I love these shorts. Whenever I can, I practice outside and these are ideal in the UAE temperatures. Perfect for you Bikram yogis out there, too. They are very soft and comfortable and although they are very short, the cut and design ensure a secure fit. Price: Dh125

Shorts.

Crop Top

This is my favourite bra top which offers light support, so fine for yoga. It looks amazing on its own with some leggings, but if you prefer to be a bit more covered up, then there are plenty of cool tops to choose from. Price: Dh195

Tank Top

This Hi Hello Hey tank top is a great choice as it goes with virtually all of the other items of clothing. It’s made from ultra-soft modal dralon which drapes beautifully rather than clings, but the fit on the hips is close enough to ensure that it stays in place during postures. The racerback allows ease of movement. Price: Dh135

Tank top.

All things yoga, including mats, blocks and even yoga slippers are all available from Reebok, so there is absolutely no excuse for not rolling out that mat. 

We rate it: 10/10 for this line’s edgy, modern, rebellious style and performance.

Where to buy: Reebok have their own stores where, obviously, this apparel is available but I first came across the 2015 autumn collection in Stadium and was blown away by its style. It rocks.
