2018 Official Forum Member Review-Big Bertha 2019 Irons

Recommended Posts

These newer clubs, with the lofts being what they are, always make me wonder two things:
How are the gaps between irons (yardage-wise)?
And
How would these affect the bottom of the bag (wedge-wise)? More wedges needed? Etc

Congrats Buddy, I’m sure you’ll do a great job with these!

How do the lofts on these compare to your current set?

Thanks my friend, they are 2° stronger so I'm guessing when I extend the shaft they will be a half club longer in flight, with me getting on in age and recovering from back surgery I don't anticipate it being a problem for me but a stronger ball striker will probably have some adjusting to do to their set up.

Congrats and great stage one! Really interested to hear what you think about these when you get some rounds in as my father-in-law is very similar to you and looking at a new set!
Enjoy the clubs and looking forward to stage 2!!

Yes he does.  That's why we were happy to here him say he was healthy enough to knock the crap out of these.   Well he didn't say that exactly.   But DD no doubt puts a lot into his work so I'm looking forward to hearing about these.

Well this is interesting. Congrats on the selection Dawg!

These irons wouldn’t be in my wheelhouse, but I’ll gladly follow along. Looking forward to your Stage 2.

So far the gaps have been consistent as I am getting used to them, certainly manageable with the shorter distances I get now.   I would imagine that anyone that hits their PW in the 120 range or longer would need to add a 48° or so wedge to their bag and then go 52°,  56° and 60° to finish out their bag.

How are you finding the forgiveness of these compared to your M1's?

Right now I will say similar, possibly a tad longer on mishits, I will have to do some comparisons on off center hits to verify this. I'll probably be getting that done in the next week or two.  Thanks for the question and Happy New Year everyone!

By the way - it was a great idea to put a link to this thread in your sig. Thank you! I would have totally missed this if I hadn't noticed it in another post. Have fun with the winter testing and I look forward to your stage 2!

      In a years time I’ve cut my average score down about 20-25 strokes per round. Shot an 88 yesterday on one of the tougher courses around my way.  Would have been low 80’s if I didn’t get 3 penalties on two of the last three holes. So actually really happy with how far I’ve come in a years time.

      Testers Chosen!
      Testing the 2019 Callaway Epic Flash:
      @edingc
      @yungkory
      And testing the Epic Flash Sub Zero:
      @THEZIPR23
      @sirchunksalot
      Full announcement posted here.
      4 Testers Wanted
      First there was just Epic and it had Jailbreak, then came Rogue and it had new lighter Jailbreak, Flash forward another year and we now have Epic Flash and Epic Flash Sub Zero, both with an even newer version of jailbreak and newer lighter crown but most importantly a face that was created by Artificial Intelligence----there has to be a Harry Arnett vs. Chad Coleman joke in there somewhere---to produce ball speeds that make heads spin at the USGA to insure they are within CT limits.  We all know how the USGA is about it's rules these day...but I digress.

      So with all that these two drivers have to be the best ever right?  Or at least the best of 2019?   The results of My Golf Spy's Most Wanted testing released just last week, showed the Epic Flash Sub Zero at the top of the list.  And that's no small achievement, as 2019 has widely been proclaimed the year of the driver, first by our very own Tony Covey last fall and afterward by just about every reviewer with a camera and YouTube login. 
      But we're going to give you, actually four of you a chance to find out for yourself just how good these two drivers are.

       HOW TO APPLY:
      in this thread - and ONLY in this thread - tell us the following:
       
      1. Your first name and home state or province. -US and Canada eligible
      2. Your current handicap and driver swing speed
      3. Your current driver
      4. List whether you would like to review the Epic Flash or Epic Flash Sub Zero
      Simple Enough...Good luck everyone, we'll chose our testers sometime next week!
