Callaway Epic Flash, Epic Flash Sub Zero hit USGA conforming list

Published

on

Speculation has been rampant in the GolfWRX forums for month that Callaway’s 2019 driver offering will be called the Epic Flash. And it stands to reason that, like the Rogue, the company could offer a Sub Zero version of the driver.

Today, the Epic Flash and three versions of the Epic Flash Sub Zero hit the USGA’s conforming list. While we have no official information beyond the photos at present, we’re happy to present those for your speculative and viewing pleasure.

Epic Flash Sub Zero V1

Epic Flash Sub Zero V2

Epic Flash Sub Zero V3

All models feature a sliding rear weight, similar to what we saw in the original Epic. Not surprisingly, the company incorporates its ball-speed boosting Jailbreak Technology in all four models. As with the Callaway Rogue Sub Zero, the Flash Sub Zero looks to feature a forward-placed weight.

Also interesting to note, as Andrew Tursky pointed out on Twitter, the single, double (an no) diamonds graphics near the hosel. The drivers are also rumored to included a successor to X-Face VFT: “Flash Face” technology.

Let us know what you think about the photos, GolfWRX Members? Do you think more than two Sub Zero models will come to retail, or are some of the models Tour only?

    I hit a pile of the latest drivers yesterday and came to one clear conclusion. There’s no need for me to carry a driver. Sticking with my RBZ2 3-wood

    At a glance from these pictures can anyone see any differences from the 3 Sub Zero models shown? I just bought a Rogue sub zero model and am happy with it. No need for me to get the latest.

    Any official word on what they will retail for? I have heard it’s going to be around $599, but that was just speculation from my friend that works in the golf retail business.

Published

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day showcases Charley Hoffman’s custom Scotty Cameron Putter. The putter, which Hoffman used recently at the QBE shootout, has quite a nostalgic feel to it, although it appears the majority of our members are not too enamored with the new flatstick.

Check out the full thread and all of the photos here.

Here is what some of our members have been saying about Hoffman’s putter, but make sure to check out the entire thread and have your say at the link below.

  • Meanmachinemoe: “Hoping this is a preview of his 2019 line-up so I won’t be tempted. UGLY!”
  • evansmar004: “The top is not good looking….but I love walking the Scotty dog”
  • cxx: “You guys are funny.  The only beauty in a putter is how many putts find the bottom of the cup.”

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.
