My Callaway Big Bertha driver has finally started cooperating with me (or me with it?) but after smoking one on 9 yesterday I noticed that there's now something rattling around in the head of the driver.
Can anyone tell me what this MIGHT be? Is it time for a new driver or is this something that can be fixed? Should I NOT use it til it's taken care of?
To be clear the head is still attached to the shaft and all LOOKS well except that, when you move the club around, there's a noticeable something-something shaking around in there.
Thanks for any input.

That is typically the case for a rattle, unless there was a shaft tip weight that came loose. Typically though it's a chunck of epoxy. I'd find a good smith and have them remove the head and check it out for you, you won't be able to get rid of the rattle, but you will know if something is really wrong. If you had a hossel hit at any point it can shatter the epoxy and loosen the head eventually. A good smith can take it apart for you and assess the damage, then re-epoxy the head and ferrel in place relatively easily and it should be fairly cheap too. Good luck.

I agree with everyone. I had the same type of noise and it was a piece of epoxy.

Took it to a repair guy who basically said there's nothing he can do. Shouldn't be a problem except for an annoying rattle.

Took it to Golf Galaxy. They drilled a hole, squirted some goop in there that the loose piece sticks too, put a plug in hole, smoothed out plug. Done.
$12 to fix.
