Mark Crossfield tests Callaway GBB Epic Sub Zero driver against TaylorMade M1 460

Published

on

In this video, I do an on-course test as well as a launch monitor test to show you the differences between two of the hottest drivers of 2017: Callaway’s GBB Epic Sub Zero and TaylorMade’s M1 460 for 2017.

Post your comments and tell me what driver you would go for and why. The Epic Sub Zero does just edge the M1 460 in the numbers, but it’s a close one.

    Bought an epic 10.5 driver with fuji stiff. Time to bite the bullet and upgrade, as my reliable x2hot 3 wood goes as far as my old 910d2. The epic is an excellent driver. Note. the carbon crown is very light so if you’re just starting out perhaps look elsewhere. Only one round in and I think this could be in my bag for a long time.

    Would love to see Mark do a comparison between the driver he used 5-7 years ago (in some of his old videos), with the subzero or M1, I bet there would be very little difference.

    My only complaints with the SZ is the lack of left to right adjustment. The m1 has that. Last year’s 816 dbd has an amount of left to right adjustment and Zach showed that the SZ and the DBD were almost identical numbers. So, is the SZ actually a step back from the DBD? I love my dbd, best driver I’ve ever owned. I just don’t know if I am seeing 500 with of “better”. Maybe the m1 with more adjustability is actually the better choice of upgrade from dbd for this year?

      If you decide to give the M1 a try, pick up the previous version. Lots of testers have claimed it’s longer than the new one, and you’ll save some $$$ in the process.

    Sub zero has a bit of a weird tingy sound after the hit, not sure if anyone else noticed that. I’ll probably end up going with the new Taylormade stuff.

    Yes, take the two out and field test them on the course. The store won’t mind at all taking one them back after you played a few rounds with it. They’ll even give you full refund! (sigh)

    The aerial view of all the shots were from the fairway back, not from the tee box forward.

    A good, straightforward review which tells us that they are both very good golf clubs. Mind you, all drivers from all brands today are extremely good and I don ‘t believe there is much difference between any of them.

    Sticker still on the shaft…that has to effect the distance on the M1

    Sounded like he liked all of the hits and the M2 was much more eratic. Of course you have to hit more then 3 balls on one hole though…

    Probably should have the same shafts in there…

    yes better than dead ones!

    No chance at comparing the two with the same shafts?
