Callaway Epic Driver Review, More Distance?

Are you looking for a golf driver that will help you gain some extra yards off the tee?

Sure, we have all heard it before that the next 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 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 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.

Features

Jailbreak TechnologyCallaway Epic Driver Review

Two 3 Gram Titanium Poles have been inserted behind the face of the golf driver. This creates a vertical connection between the crown and the sole to inhibit movement. This means the Callaway 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 pretty 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.

Perimeter Weighting

The 17-gram weight on the perimeter of the 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.

Speedstep Crown

A popular feature from the well-performing XR Model. The Speedstep Crown improves air-flow and drag, so the golf club can still perform in most conditions. It also provides a fantastic visual aid when a golfer sets up to the ball.

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.

Targeted at Which golfer?

Golf clubs are designed to be very forgiving these days and the Great Big Bertha Epic 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.Callaway Epic Driver Review

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.

Callaway has also offered four different shaft options that have been tested to target different types of golfers and ball flights.

There 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.

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 club 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.

Conclusion

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.

    This is great. I love golf, it’s just so relaxing. I’m not that good but i’m progressing though. i’m glad I came across this because i’m currently looking for a new driver. My old driver just doesn’t do the job, but i can see that because i got it for cheap. But i’m going to join a golf club, so i’m looking to invest in some equipment (driver). Where is the best place to buy this, whether online or in stores?

      Yes, the Callaway Epic Driver is a fantastic driver for distance, adjustability and forgiveness. That’s great you are looking at joining a golf club. The more games you get in, the quicker you will improve. There are a lot of different drivers to choose from, but the Callaway Epic Driver is one of the better options, which can be purchased both online or in store.

    I occasionally play Golf and have been looking to get a new driver, thanks for the review. I own a Titliest 910 d2 driver, it’s pretty good for someone like me, but I am the kind of person who always wants to upgrade when something becomes a little old. I think this may be a little out of my budget, what can I get for something under $200?

      Hi Minhaj

      I appreciate your comments.

      Yes the Callaway Epic Driver is a fantastic driver and one of the best sellers at the moment. The extra ball speed is always appealing to golfers.

      This is a new model, so I would suggest to be on the look out for a discontinued driver which you might find a little closer to your budget.

      Cheers

    Hello Chris. I’m glad I came across this article since I’m currently shopping around for a driver. It is a very informative article. The video at the end gave the article a nice touch.
    I have a few questions I am hoping you can answer. You mentioned that the Speedstep Crown “provides a fantastic visual aid”. Can you please elaborate on this? How exactly does it provide a fantastic visual aid?
    My second question is. Would you recommend this driver for a novice golfer, like me?

      Hi Joey

      Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate your comments.

      The main purpose of the Speedstep Crown in the Callaway Epic Driver is to reduce drag so the clubhead swings through the wind easier. It is lined up in the centre of the crown which makes it very easy to line up the golf ball square whilst setting up to the ball.

      I would highly recommend this Driver to a novice golfer because it is a forgiving option and targeted at the golfer who needs a user friendly driver. Stay away from the Sub Zero option as it is designed for more consistent ball strikers and will launch a lot lower.

      Happy Golfing.

      Cheers

    Hello,

    Awesome post about the Callaway Epic Driver.

    I am definitely in the market for a new driver. I am glad I landed on your post because it has changed my view on the driver.

    I also need a new set of irons. What would you recommend for a medium skilled player?

    Thanks,
    Shawn
