Callaway has unveiled the launch of the new Epic series of irons and hybrids, following on from the success of the Epic Driver which was released earlier in the year.
Callaway has unveiled the launch of the new Epic series of irons and hybrids, utilising the same technology used in the GBB Epic Drivers, the best selling driver in 2017.
At the heart of each head is a high-grade, lightweight and strong cast-steel Exo-Cage construction that stiffens the body, particularly in the top line and sole, allowing the face to take on more impact load, in turn generating faster ball speeds, more distance and enhanced performance.
A next-generation 360 Face Cup – just 1mm thick at its thinnest point – is another key ingredient to unlocking extra yards throughout each set. Featuring an ultra-thin rim around the perimeter of the inner side of the face, at impact it flexes and rebounds to add ball speed on centre-hit shots, while minimising loss on off-centre strikes.
The CG position in each head is precisely and individually managed via a new Metal Injection Moulded (MIM) process that utilises a dense, and heavy, tungsten powder baked into intricate Internal Standing Wave shapes that are unique to each iron.
The Epic Pro Iron benefits from all the technologies of the standard Epic Iron in a slightly smaller head, slimmer top line, and less offset to promote a premium forged-like feel and workability that better players desire, without any loss in performance.
These products represent the most precisely engineered, fully adjustable and versatile utility clubs the company has ever released.
Borrowing proprietary Triaxial Carbon Composite technology from the revolutionary Great Big Bertha Epic and Epic Sub Zero Drivers, the crown on the Epic Hybrids is the thinnest and lightest material – weighing just 5g - Callaway has ever used.
This substantial weight saving is then re-distributed into strategic locations within the ultra-premium body frame to dramatically increase MOI and lower the CG, making the Epic Hybrids exceptionally powerful, forgiving, accurate and easy to launch.
Distance has been dialled up courtesy of Callaway’s industry-leading 455 Forged Hyper Speed Face Cup Technology. The thin and flexible rim around the inner side of the face flexes and releases more uniformly and efficiently at impact, increasing ball speed across the face, especially towards the bottom, where most miss-hits occur.
Mirroring technology in Epic Irons, a Metal Injection Moulded (MIM) process that utilises a dense and heavy tungsten powder, 1.8 times heavier than steel, creates intricate 35g Internal Standing Wave shapes that are precisely and robotically laser-welded into each head. This helps maximise MOI of the hybrid and, with CG positioned extremely low and deep in the head, increases its forgiveness and power.
