The Epic is a sexy club and produces fantastic numbers but I never felt overly comfortable when stood over the ball. Jailbreak Technology for Fast Ball Speed Our innovative Jailbreak Technology incorporates two internal bars that stiffen the body, placing more impact load on the face for fast ball speed. The idea is that center-hits are already achieving maximum ball speed, while the thinner face in other areas protects ball speed on mis-hits. Callaway are certainly talking a good game with the Epic Flash but how do these new models perform? Callaway has had several huge years of success in the driver market with their and models. It comes with a T2C Triaxial Carbon on the crown of the club.
The distinctive topography on the inner side of the Flash Face is forged from a special titanium and heat treated at 595° 1100F for two hours to create a face that combines a low modulus measurement, for flexibility and speed, with excellent strength properties. But I am maxed out on distance, which is why I was impressed with the following results: Club Ball Speed mph Total Spin rpm Launch Angle degrees Carry Yards Total Yards Titleist 917 D3 149 2076 14. The Callaway Epic Flash has received plenty of positive feedback after its introduction earlier this season with multiple players on Tour gaining distance off the tee on their way to winning trophies. Every driver has its unique characteristics. This increased further when we lofted down and even further still when we switched into the Sub Zero model.
The engineers at Callaway used Artifical Intelligence to help design the face this time. With almost no-one using a fade bias in the Epic, Callaway decided to abandon a weight tracking system in the Rogue in favour of a dedicated draw-biased driver - the Rogue Draw. Thanks I used my shaft in both when I got to test it. Re the Flash numbers, my spin rate was way down to an average of 2,300 this contributed to the lack of punishment when club was open or closed on mishits and smash factor and launch angle all perfect according to the fitter. The standard Epic boasts a larger club footprint and can offer more forgiveness to the player looking for more help off the tee.
It would help give us a better understanding of maybe what adjustments need made. Like Jailbreak before it, the Flash Face does deliver additional ball speed, so if you can get a set up that creates the right launch and spin then you should also see a distance gain. Two years ago, Callaway introduced the original Epic drivers with their revolutionary Jailbreak technology. This creates discretionary weight and lowers the center of gravity. For the new Epic Flash and Epic Flash Sub Zero drivers, Callaway engineers and designers taught a powerful computer how to design a driver face, a process called machine learning. I hit my Rogue an average of 228 with a long of 243. The Sub-Zero head is available in lofts of 9 and 10.
Both clubs can also be adjusted to a draw bias setting that helps golfers eliminate their slice. Well, it never really went away as it continued to run alongside the which was launched last year. There is also a new T2C Triaxial Carbon in the crown that is lighter and uses a tighter carbon weave. There are three custom shaft options. Everyone wants an extra 10, 15 or 20 yards overnight.
To ensure the faces are made precisely, they are forged, machined and laser-welded into place. The Epic Flash combines distance and forgiveness for the average player, while the Sub Zero model provides the stronger, low spin flight better players demand with off-centre assistance noticeable too. Epic Flash Subzero Like most drivers, there are several different models available. Just my Rogue vs an Epic Flash with the same shaft. So I know if I can get numbers better than that, a driver is working really well for me. Please take a look and let us know what you think! Last July I bought a new Rouge Driver and have loved it ever since. The Epic line is built for maximum distance.
You can read all about the technology. The result is faster ball speed. This is how you need to look at these two drivers too! Our reaction after hitting Epic Flash was collectively similar surrounding how it compares to Rogue — it feels more powerful and sounds better, especially on mishits. It is one of the best drivers I have ever hit after being fit for it. Callaway Epic Flash driver vs. Keep at it guys, your killing it! The day I hit it I was consistently 309-315 with one I nutted to 337 after roll.
One up to the TaylorMade. Again, personal preference may dictate a difference of opinion, but for us the TaylorMade M5 goes 2-0 up here. With the Epic Flash I think they have managed to take the best bits of both and then add a faster face. Jailbreak Technology for Faster Ball Speed Internal Jailbreak bars stiffen and stabilize the crown and sole, placing more impact load on the face to promote faster ball speed. Callaway Epic Flash Driver Verdict Overall this is a pretty impressive bit of innovation by Callaway and the amazing thing about the Flash Face is that the design of the back is unique to this size and shape of head. The Flash model misses are supposed to be much better.
If you are a new Afterpay customer, the first payment will be made at the time of purchase, with payments over the next 6 weeks. Moving the weight allows players and fitters to create a draw or fade bias. The innovative technology made its way into three driver heads making it suitable for a larger audience after the Epic had just focused on one driver head. Club head about 105-110 mph, ball speed about 150-155 mph. Callaway Epic Flash Sub Zero: Key Features New Flash Face Technology for more ball speed Callaway engineers used Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to create a radically different face design to increase ball speed in the centre region of the face. What we have with Epic Flash is another game changing leap in driver technology that looks set to eclipse the advances of its forerunners. The Callaway Epic Flash driver and woods line utilizes A.
