  1. Totally agree! My point was to just compare stock to stock. However, I am playing a Cobra King Ltd driver that I was fit for and both the Epic drivers with stock shafts beat my fitted Cobra.
  2. I hit the 13.5 and while it had the same solid feel of the driver, I do not remember seeing any dots on the bottom like on the driver. I may have missed it though. The 3 metal was really good and very solid. It has two interchangable weights (front and back) so you can adjust your launch conditions accordingly. My Assisant pro was back from vacation and I asked him how he liked the driver. His comment was that it was an absolute beast and that he was on staff with the wrong company. I was glad to hear his thoughts on it, as I didn't even think to ask him when I hit it.
  3. The times I have hit the 917 it was with the stock shaft in it, and it couldn't out perform my King LTD. However, the Epic with the stock shaft did. Your custom fit 917 may be a different story. I am looking forward to seeing what others think once they get the chance to hit it.
  4. I have hit the 917D2 and while it is a fairway finder, so is the Epic and it was significantly longer for me.
  5. I checked with my pro shop and they said that the drivers will be $499 for both the Epic and the Epic SZ.
  6. I would be very shocked if this was the case. The rep said that they are expecting to have 40% of the market share with these driver and that won't happen with a $1000 driver. Plus, I doubt a rep is going around to pro shops to convince them to carry $1000 driver. I would expect the two drivers to run the same price. As for the length. I didn't ask, however, I play a 44.5" driver and now that I think about it I didn't really notice a difference in length (i.e. the Callaway didn't seem long).
  7. Yes, the Sub Zero stands for the location of the CG being below the neutral axis. Whether it really is or not, I am sure the great people on this website will figure that out. All I know is it is LONG and FORGIVING. Not the usual squirliness I often get with low spin drivers (I don't have much of that with the Cobra, which is part of the reason I like it so much). As for the sound, it is not a muted sound, but it is not reverberating. It is so hard to describe sounds, mostly I was impressed by how solid the sound was. I don't know if that makes any sense. It does not echo at all. It is a
  8. So, I got to hit this two days ago. I am not in the business, just happened to stop by my course to hit some balls and a Callaway rep was out there with my HP and Assistant and they were hitting this. They know I am a junkie, so I got to take a few swings with both the Regular Epic and the Epic SubZero. They both had stock Stiff shafts in them (Hazardous in the Epic and the New Rogue shaft in the SZ). I hit it against my Cobra King Ltd Driver with a shaft that I have been fitted for. I think my current driver is the longest and most accurate driver I have ever had. I wasn't trying this dr
  9. This putter has me very intrigued. I have done a lot of product testing in the past for other websites, but have taken a break from it the last year or so. During my time test I have become a HUGE believer in being fit for golf club and especially your putter. So the opportunity to work with Mr. Rife on a putter that already has such interesting technology. I can see that this may be a true game changer. I play around 100 rounds a year. About half of which are 9 hole rounds and I practice on a near daily basis. My current handicap is a 4.8. I am currently gaming a custom fit Ede
  10. My name is Stephen Davis and I live in Colorado Springs, CO. Believe it or not, we have year round golf and I will be out golfing on Christmas Eve. I am currently using a Byron Morgan Experimental putter.
