Forum Thread of the Day: “New Callaway Driver – Epic Flash”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from tbomb who describes his experience with a new “Epic Flash” driver from Callaway. Despite not being due for release until next February, tbomb claims to have tested Callaway’s new driver, and he has got our forum members more than a little interested, stating how “The sound alone will make you excited. It’s a powerful sound, and the ball flies off the club face.”

Describing in great detail the appearance, from colors to crown, and performance of the new Epic Flash driver, tbomb reveals: “Launch was great, I played the 9* Epic Last year with 1*+, and this launched the same. May have been the shaft. Feel great. I hit 15 balls (straight out of the Pro Shop), and I nutted 12 of them. All on a rope. No more then 15 yards dispersion.

There may be no photos until December, but tbomb has disclosed plenty of information to get a feel for what the new Epic Flash driver will look like, describing it as “yellow and green” and a “bright club.” His overall impression of the new club from Callaway? “I feel confident saying this will be the driver for 2019.

Get the full rundown of the new Callaway Epic Flash driver here.

    Callaway is just shooting themselves in the foot with this. They keep releasing their “best driver yet” and sooner or later people are going to stop buying their stuff but we will see

      Yep, it didn’t work for sliced bread either.

    So great to here all the “Amateurs” out there making comments on another club, the day you people are playing on tour I’ll be listening until then keep on amusing each other. The simple reason the club companies release new clubs every year is to make money, simple, honest truth..just as there are $250 up green fees on courses with no tee times available, there are plenty of players with $500 in their golf bag to buy any club they want.

    We need a ‘Who gives a d***’ between IDHT and Flop, because really, I don’t give a d***.

    I bet I can still hit it past 90% of the people who go buy this with my used 80 dollar BioCell+.

    Yet none of the top ten PGA Pros that hit the driver the farthest this year used a Callaway. TM and Ping. So much for being the longest / hottest driver.

    seriously pissed off at callaway and am going with another vendor in my shop next season. how many times do they tell us 2 year product cycle and then come out with a new driver every year. WE HAVE ROGUE. WE DONT NEED ANOTHER DRIVER LET US SELL THE ONES WE HAVE. Then no net down all year and they expect you to sell the previous model driver at full price. No thanks callaway. No flash for my course.

      No one is forcing you to upgrade every year. Callaway knows if they produce it, people will buy it, which they will.

      Honda comes out with a new Accord every year. Do you feel pressured to buy the upgrade?

    I can hardly wait to get it. An additional 2 yards is worth every dollar.

    Oh boy, another 500 Dollar plus Driver.

    If this club conforms to the equipment standards, it will perform no better than anything else released over the past 7-8 years…..nutt’n new except another attempt to take the consumers’ money.

      so wrong…the epic an rogue were much better all over the face along with great sound and feel….much longer than 917 line…not longer than my new ts3 but id rather have my epic back same shaft. hits toward the toe stay in the air longer with less dispersion. epic was first driver that reduce slight toe hooks to playable if not bombs….the m3 addressed this by opening the toe more but if you happen to push off the toe it was much much worse….different technology better result for callaway…i will say i never got along with my rogue..long as hell but not the control i had with the epic same shafts of course…

    “No more then…” It’s bad enough you trust a guy that doesn’t know simple grammar. But to repost it is truly dumb.

      Isn’t there a couple billionairs who don’t have high school diploma’s? I know a guy who cannot even spell let alone worry about his grammar worth about $90mil. If trolling someone over their grammer is all you have than you are in trouple man…

    I always love how people describe a “powerful sound” “the ball flies off the face” “it sounds hot” “the ball is just exploding off the face”

    Please, this is just acoustics, nothing to do with actual performance, but then again we all like listening to different kinds of music….so….

    I do agree that a driver than sounds pleasing is more enjoyable to hit, but it really has nothing to do with actual performance.

    • ogo

      FYI… A loud impact sound means you are losing energy… which means you are losing distance…. believe it because that’s the science.

Forum Thread of the Day: “What is your favorite ‘Tour Issue’ club of all time?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from pmurph#3, who asks fellow members what their favourite Tour Issue club of all time is. Despite these clubs not featuring in your local golf store, it doesn’t stop our members from getting their hands on them, and in the thread, we see plenty of rare clubs mentioned.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • mosesgolf: “The 300 Tour and then the R510 DF (no TP logo on toe underline half line) in respective order.  These two drivers imo kicked off the “Tour” craze. I still have the Adams “Peanut” hybrid which is the best hybrid I’ve ever played.”
  • 300_yard_drives: “Secret tour issue Callaway apex di and I still have mine. Asian Tour rep didn’t even know it existed. I have only seen it in one other person’s bag personally, and that was Jaime Sadlowski.”
  • cardoustie: “I gotta go with 510df, that to me started the whole tour issue thing. I did get a TI driver at one time … 580 xd tp IIRC, but I hooked it off the planet.  Must have had loads of hot melt in the heel.  And it wasn’t just me; even my +3 buddy couldn’t hit it straight.  Too bad as the feel was exceptional.”
  • cgasucks: “The Titleist 970 FW.  This is the one that Tiger used as his three-wood in his prime.  Very hard to get then…and very hard to get now.”

Wilson introduces super game improvement Staff D7 irons

Published

on

Wilson Golf has announced that 2019 will see the release of their new super game improvement Wilson Staff D7 distance irons.

The new Wilson Staff D7 distance irons will keep the aesthetics from the FG Tour V6 and C300 irons while integrating Wilson’s RE-AKT technology, which is designed to provide golfers with extra power.

Speaking with regards to the new irons, manager of Wilson Golf Innovation Jon Pergande, described precisely what the new clubs are set to offer golfers.

“The D7 line is our latest installment of game improvement irons that will give golfers increased distances on longer irons and precision with the shorter clubs. Our RE-AKT technology and ultra-thin responsive club-face increases ball speeds to help produce maximum distances, while the shorter clubs give golfers a greater feel and more distance control.”

Just how has Wilson Golf gone about constructing these new irons to achieve these goals?

Well, the Wilson Staff D7 long irons (4-7 iron) feature three rows of power holes, and will also contain Wilson’s thinnest club face ever, designed to provide golfers with both maximum distance and greater responsiveness off the club face.

The D7 short irons, on the other hand,  feature fewer power holes and optimized weighting with the aim of providing maximum feel and greater distance control.

The irons are equipped with Recoil Series Graphite Shafts, which will be available in A, R and S flexes at 65 grams. KBS Tour 80 Steel shafts are also available in R and S flexes.

The D7 irons will be available to purchase from retailers and Wilson.com on January 17, while the pre-sale begins on January 10. The retail price for the D7 Steel irons is $599, while the graphite irons will cost $699.
