Spotted: Callaway Epic Irons

Published

on

Since the launch of Callaway’s GBB Epic drivers and fairway woods in January, GolfWRX Members have been talking about new Epic irons that were rumored to be in the works at Callaway…. and it seems they were on to something.

Yesterday in our forums, photos of what appear to be Callaway Epic Pro irons were posted in this thread by GolfWRX Member jlp. The photo also includes what look to be Callaway Epic hybrids (hidden underneath Callaway Epic hybrid head covers). GolfWRX Member CTRoss10 also posted what he says is an address photo of a Callaway Epic 5 iron.

We reached out to Callaway representatives, who said they’re not commenting on the Epic irons or Epic hybrids at this time.

    Hit these today and they felt great despite the fact that they are not forged. The ball flew and I was impressed by the distance until I checked the lofts: they were jacked. The smaller head and thinner topline is appealing but not enough to justify the $ 250 per club price tag.
    I’ll be keeping my AP 2’s.

    These look like they are intended to compete with M2 and/or M1 irons, not players’ clubs.

    No complaints here about product after product. Still playing my Cleveland 588 MT irons and haven’t found anything worth the performance or high cost to knock them out of the bag.

    Hurry up and get your order in, that has got to be the answer, or as Ping says, the Anser. With a 40 degree 1 inch longer Wedge it will go like an 8 iron, wait a min. isn’t that a normal 8 Iron?

    Hearing lofts have been increased by 4 degrees per iron, so that you lose yards with say six iron by 15 yards, otherwise you’d only need a ba full of irons. #seriouslylong

      Agreed. When Nike got out of the club game, I was like “YES! No more Volt!” Then TaylorMade and Callaway took up Nike’s slack…….and it’s ALL downhill from there.

    I wish Calloway would go all the way and reintroduce the old Hogan Apex Edge Pro. Specs similar to Apex Pro, however, Edge is more is a middle (10-15) handicapper than a better players club like the Apex Pro. Longer toe to heel, thicker top line and slightly larger sole make it easier to hit.

    Where are the Nancies bitchin about too short of product life cycles. This company now is king of new product every 6 months. The steelhead was more or less just a rebadging of a similar iron 15-20 years ago ( x-14 x16 etc). Jailbreak is laughable as a technology even the designers admit it was necessary to support the crown and body of the club with basically stringers. These pillars hold the club together.
    if it was anything but that why isn’t in their fairways and hybrids, see what I mean hype. They’re now showing up on the used rack.
    Epic irons where is the jailbreak?

      It’s not taylormade, so they don’t care.

      Hey! Stop with spewing the truth! We can’t handle that here and Callaway is everyone’s favorite OEM right now!

      Not to mention the fact that it’s beyond the COR limit

    These seem to be the obvious replacement to the XR/Pro irons that used the “facecup” technology. These Epics clearly have the facecup and the thicker top line which would support that. I think the Apex is a fantastic and successful line for Callaway, and there is no way they are getting rid of it. Pictures of new Apex MB irons (that Rory is using) have been all over the boards here and I’m sure we’ll also see those rolled out sometime this Summer/Fall.

    So essentially those are the new APEX. Looks like that with Ben Hogan going out of business (again) the name (APEX) is also fading into the background. Just my suspicion.

      There are not replacing the Apex. And there is no relation to the rebooted Ben Hogan company.

        They sold the Ben Hogan brand but kept the Apex name. Indeed I don’t see EPIC irons being a replacement of Apex series.

    In 2014, callaway XR driver was new and great, XR wood and hybrids were new and great, XR irons were new but were mediocre game improvement irons. Is history repeating now in 2017?

      History has been repeating it self in the golf industry for many years.

Callaway Golf launches new titanium Jailbreak-powered Super Hybrid

Published

on

Callaway Super Hybrid

Callaway Golf aims to redefine what a hybrid can be with the introduction of the all-new, multi-material, titanium-powered Callaway Super Hybrid for 2020. Built to offer the distance, ball speed and forgiveness of a fairway wood, with the added benefit of being built into a hybrid chassis, the Callaway Super Hybrid is the designed for those golfers that want control without sacrificing distance.

Creating a hybrid that performs like a fairway wood takes some serious engineering, and in the case of the new Callaway Super Hybrid, it means pulling out all the stops with technology and packing it all into one finely tuned club.

Here’s everything the R&D team at Callaway has been able to accomplish with this hybrid design

2020 Callaway Super Hybrid: Details

High-Strength Titanium Face insert

The Titanium face insert of the Super Hybrid promotes greater ball speeds and ball speed consistency thanks to variable face thickness, according to the company. Adding in Callaway’s proven Jailbreak technology helps stiffen the total structure of the clubhead’s titanium body. This places, as Callaway says, more impact load on the Face Insert to push the limits of flex and ball speed retention.

Light Weight Carbon Crown

An all-new T2C Triaxial Carbon Crown has a tighter weave than other composite crowns used in the past which increases strength and saves weight versus a traditional hybrid’s steel crown. The weight savings are then redistributed within the head to lower the Center of Gravity, and raise MOI for consistent distance on mishits.

Full Titanium Body With Precise Tungsten Weighting

Using a titanium body (the crown not withstanding) allows Callaway engineers to place a large volume of tungsten into the heel and toe of each clubs to once again increased MOI and optimized ball flight.

Using the same Metal Injection Molded Tungsten Weighting technology seen in other Callaway clubs, including the Epic Star line, Callaway is able to place a very high volume Metal Injection Molded (MIM’ed) tungsten weight to optimize CG for launch and control. How much tungsten you might ask? 68 grams per head—that’s close to 30 percent of the average hybrid’s total head mass!

Tech Specs and Options

The Callaway Super Hybrid will be available in three loft options, all three of which will also be available in left-handed. The stock shaft is the popular Mitsubishi Chemical Tensei CK Orange Hybrid shaft, but like anything Callaway, it will also include a large amount of no-upcharge options for custom orders.

Callaway Super Hybrid Pricing and Availability

The Callaway Super Hybrid is now available for preorder with retail stock hitting shelves on November 1st.

MSRP: $319.99
