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?

    This article is worthless without pictures of the club faces.

      Club faces are all the same… everybody wants to look at the sole with the sculpturing, fancy coloring and weight shift channels….. the gearhead’s delight… 😮

    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

      If it’s a strong 3W, it might be a reasonable replacement for some drivers. Otherwise, I see the lost yards, a higher traj, and more hook movement as undesirable.

    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.

    I need help cause I suffer from New Golf Club Obsessive-Compulsive Buying Syndrome.
    When new models come out I can’t stand looking at my old obsolete clubs… I gotta have those new beauties in my WITB arsenal of golf destruction. It’s driving me nutty!!

      Still see the XR-16 being pounded close to 400 yards at long drive contests…so safe to say until you need more then 400 yards your XR is good to go…

Today from the Forums: “New Axis 1 Tour-HM models at the 2020 Honda Classic”

Published

on

Today from the Forums shines the spotlight on new Axis 1 Tour-HM models featured at this week’s Honda Classic. The flat-sticks have garnered lots of reaction from WRXers, with our members currently split on the unique designs.

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.

  • tiger99210: “I like them. Doesn’t look Odd at all.”
  • Barracuda: “I don’t get the hate on companies that are actually trying to do something better than what we have available. I don’t play axis1, but it was definitely on my shortlist, I ended up with a LAB putter. It does look funky; it also helps me score better than my stunning queen B6.”
  • Steel Dillo: “I’d be more interested if they were priced reasonably. Just don’t see what drives their cost up comparable to a fully milled specialty brand other than having Rose’s name on them. IMO, they should be in that $200-$250 range like their other putters.”

The Cut Blue DC contains a 4-piece construction with a urethane cover designed to maximize spin and greenside feel, while the ball’s 360 dimple pattern is designed to increase aerodynamics.

The latest ball from Cut Golf is fully conforming to USGA rules, features 105 compression (up from 90 on the original Cut Blue) and arrives in both white and atomic yellow color codes.
