I hit the Epic...and I liked it

Recommended Posts

I wonder what name Callaway will come up with that is beyond Epic for the next greatest driver. What tops Epic? Maybe we should have a contest.

The up to 11 series. Most drivers on the market today only go 100% as far as one can hit it but where do you go from there? These ones go to 110%.

Epic-er hits stores late Spring 2017 with Federal Jail-break tech, followed by Epic-erer to be released Fall 2017 with Alcatraz Escape tech, and finally Epicist is launched at 2018 PGA Show with Gitmo break technology

Not gonna pay $800

 

Oooops! I misread the ad, it was $499. The $799 was for a set of irons....guess I can't read.

Huh? It doesn't cost that much. It's $499 just like every premium driver

Dicks had it listed as $799 in their weekly flyer this week.

 

My bad the $799 was for irons next to the Epic, listed as $499.

You have the answer in your reply. The Beyond Epic.

 

I got to hit the Epic 3W and boy is that an easy stick to swing, and longg. I'll still be looking at the BBA816 assuming the price will drop a smidge this year. Not swinging the Krank as well as I would like to be.

Exactly what I was going for. I get the whole naming branding thing...I really do - But I'd love it if we could move past all of the hyperbolic, over the top, over-caffeinated and in your face stuff - So instead of Callaway Epic - What about Callaway Driver C1.

I don't see a lot of chatter in the forums about this driver but wanted to give my impressions. While I did hit it on the launch monitor, I think it's better to describe my range and on course results.

 

First off, before I took this to the course, I tweaked the settings on the range until I found a combination that was giving me the ball flight I wanted and seemed to be spinning optimally. I have 5 different shafts that I could use in this driver but I am hitting the Rogue I/O 70 X-Stiff the best, which is the same shaft I used in my XR16 SZ. I started with the weight forward, since that's what I used in the XR16 SZ, and was actually spinning the ball too little. Then I moved the weight to back and it was like magic, Not only did I look like I was carrying it further, but it made the driver a bit more forgiving and it felt better. I played the XR16 SZ at 8.5* and I play the EPIC SZ at 8*.

 

On the course, the longest driver I ever mustered in my 5 months with the XR16 SZ was 295 (I had one at 303 but it took a huge bounce of the cart path). For reference, I measure all my distances with my Gamegolf GPS. In my first 3 rounds with the EPIC SZ, I've hit two drives in the fairway over 300 (303 and 305). I'm hitting it ridiculously straight and have a plethora of confidence with it in my hands. Keep in mind, I also switched to the Chrome Soft X during this period, which works really well with this driver, so that could be part of the extra distance I'm seeing as well. All I know is that I love the driver so far and hope I can keep hitting it at this level. It is EPIC!!

Yes sir, right around that. I've worked really hard the last couple of years, around the time I turned 40, to increase my swing speed by hitting the gym hard. I think I was closer to 100 a couple of years ago.

I have seen similar results, but went with the Standard epic over the SZ. Have hit a couple 300+ which I haven't seen since my 20s, and am averaging over 275 on good strikes measured with Arccos 360. Love this club.

In all honesty probably going with the 2016 M2 3HL. I was able to carry identical distances with that and the Epic.
