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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

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