Are you looking for a Callaway Golf Driver that will help you gain some extra yards off the tee?
Sure, we have all heard it before that the next top rated golf driver a company brings out is longer and straighter than its predecessor.
Here is a Callaway Epic Driver Review with all the information as to why this golf club could be a breakthrough in terms of golf driver technology.
Since the R&A made a limit as to how much COR (Energy Transference) a driver can have over ten years ago it has been tough for manufacturers to get drivers to legally generate the ball speed to optimise maximum distance.
Callaway Golf is certainly on to something here with the new Callaway Epic Driver, with some technological features that have not really been seen before in a driver.
Callaway Jailbreak Technology
Two 3 Gram Titanium Poles have been inserted behind the face of the Callaway Golf Driver. This creates a vertical connection between the crown and the sole to inhibit movement.
This means the Callaway GBB Epic Driver is more stable at impact, which forces the face to flex more and provides more ball speed.
Titanium Exo Cage and Triaxial Carbon Construction
Sounds a little confusing and complicated, doesn’t it?
Well, it is actually quite simple.
A special grade of High-Grade Carbon Fibers has been used to combine with a Titanium head to create a crown that is 30% thinner. This has freed up weight and allowed Callaway to use their very innovative Jailbreak Technology to enhance ball speed. With the use of these carbon fibers, it also makes for an incredibly light clubhead.
The 17-gram weight on the perimeter of the Great Big Bertha Epic driver’s head helps provide fantastic ball flight optimisation. If you tend to slice the ball, just put the weight in the heel, which will help turn the clubface at impact and promote a draw.
Do the exact opposite if you want to hit a fade.
The Perimeter Weighting allows for 21 yards of workability.
Callaway Speedstep Crown
A popular feature from the well-performing Callaway XR Driver Model. The Speedstep Crown improves air-flow and drag, so the Callaway golf club driver can still perform in most conditions. It also provides a fantastic visual aid when a golfer sets up to the ball.
Callaway Optifit Adjustability
The hosel of the golf club can be adjusted to 8 different settings. Loft can be adjusted 1 degree lower or 2 degrees higher. The face angle can also be adjusted into a draw position, which is ideal if a golfer struggles with the slice whih tends to be a lot of beginners.
Targeted at Which Golfer?
Golf clubs are designed to be very forgiving these days and the Great Epic Golf Driver could be targeted at almost any ability level. If you after a low, mid or high handicap and are after a bit more distance then this could be the driver for you.
As long as the golfer gets the shaft that best matches their swing speed and launch then this club should provide the best chance to hit the ball as far down the fairway as possible.
The Epic Driver is available in Right Handed in lofts of 9.5, 10.5 and 13.5. The lefties also don’t miss out here as the driver is available in lofts of, 9, 10.5 and 13.5 degrees.
Check out the following link for the Epic Driver Specs.
Callaway has also offered four different shaft options that have been tested to target different types of golfers and ball flights.
There is a Callaway Epic Driver Senior Shaft is a light option designed for the golfer with an average pace swing speed and struggles with launch. The heaviest shaft is designed for a golfer that generates a fast swing speed and has no trouble achieving an optimum launch.
Callaway Epic Sub Zero Driver
This is an alternate driver that features all the same technology as the standard epic. The head is a little more compact and there are two weights in the sole of the club that can be adjusted to promote a higher or lower launch and increase, or decrease spin.
Put the heavier weight in the front of the club and it promotes a lower ball with less spin. Put it in the back and it promotes a higher ball with more spin.
This Sub Zero Driver is available in lofts of 9 degrees and 10.5 degrees for the right-handed player. The left-handed golfer also does not miss out with this unique club being offered in a 9-degree loft option.
A golfer that wants a lower more penetrating ball might benefit a little more from the Callaway Great Big Bertha Epic Sub Zero Driver.

A golf club with all these new features and that name would definitely want to perform, and it certainly does.
The Jailbreak Technology is a bit of a breakthrough for enhanced ball speed because lets face it, we get a little tired of consistently hearing that the new driver is longer and straighter than before.
This club is certainly a must try if you get a chance and one of the better Callaway Golf Clubs on the market,
