Spotted: Callaway Epic Hybrid



We spotted a new Callaway Epic hybrid on the range at the Wells Fargo Championship where it was being tested by Kevin Kisner. This comes just days after photos of new Callaway Epic irons leaked in our forum.


Kisner is playing great golf this season. Last week at the Zurich Classic, he and teammate Scott Brown finished runner-up to Cameron Smith and Jonas Blixt in a four-hole playoff. He hasn’t missed a cut since November, and has two top-5 finishes this year including a T2 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March. Kisner is currently using a Callaway X2 Hot hybrid, which Callaway launched in 2013. The Epic hybrid he’s testing is the same loft (18 degrees), but it has a new shaft (UST Mamiya’s UST iRod).


While Callaway isn’t sharing any details about the Epic hybrid at this time, the photos show that the club has an adjustable hosel that allows golfers to tweak loft and lie angle. It also seems to have a triaxial carbon fiber crown, a key aspect of the company’s Epic drivers and fairway woods that the company used to move the center of gravity (CG) of the club heads lower and deeper. In addition, it uses Callaway’s “Speed Steps,” an aerodynamic feature on the top of the club head that reduces drag.

    Still haven’t found a better hybrid than my old Adams… looks like they’ve copied it’s shape. I like the Epic Driver a lot, so I’m not anti Callaway… just kinda skeptical about this being an improvement. I’ll try it though, if someone gives me one…

    Not sure why people feel a need to complain about new clubs. Nothing makes you have to buy them.

    Yeesh, why they have to do that to the crown. I actually prefer turbulators. I can figure out where to hit the ball without all that noise.

    The first picture looks like when my uncle cut off the tip of his finger in an industrial accident.

        What is a traffic hater?
        Will Callaway stand by their product after the 2 year warranty ends? Any cracks after that will make that $300 hybrid a paperweight.

          Thanks BB where would we be without the internet comment section grammar police? After two years any cracks in the club are not going to be due to a defect in the club, which is why the whole warranty exists in the first place. Now you go play in traffic, hater.

            It is not my fault you can’t communicate effectively with your writing. Typing that comma wasn’t that hard, was it?
            If the crown cracks after 25 months of normal use, it most certainly is a defective product.

              What would a acceptable time frame be for you then? 3 years? 5 years? Until Armageddon? I don’t know if you are aware of this but over a large enough timeframe hardware failure is 100%. The sad truth is there is no way a company can be profitable with a lifetime guarantee on their golf clubs.
