Somebody has to have some feedback on the Epic Star by now.....

How's it play?

Comparisons to Epic and Epic Sub Zero?

Anything?

The epic star appears to sit closed, so not even worth a gander.

My fitter won't touch lie angles or adjustment with woods. So if glued heads don't at least sit square or slightly open, then I'm not really interested.

Nothing the star offers that the North American Epics don't. Other than the allure of 🇯🇵 specific market and obviously the non adjustable shaft.

I like the bonded hosel.

Being JDM is neither here nor there. I know it doesn't look like it as I'm a Miura gamer, but on this one it's more about the bonded hosel.

I'm gonna see my builder in like two weeks. I'll have to ask him if he's willing to bend the driver. He's bent my fairways and hybrids for loft, lie and face angle.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it's typically about the length of the neck, right? Whther they have enough room? Whether they'll do it or not?

I just got one.  Sits about 2* open which was a very pleasant surprise.  Haven't had a change to hit it yet but i definitely prefer the look at address v the bulky adjustable hosel.

Let me know how that works out.

Love to see some more pics too.

Is it a TC Serial? Or Retail JDM?

Thanks for sharing!!!

I'll post some more pics.  I got a 3 and 5 wood too and they both setup a little open also.  Very pleasantly surprised.

They are all JDM.  Getting reshafted right now.

No I didn't try bending it.  The specs are pretty ideal the face is a little open and the loft and lie are good.

LOVE my Star.  Firmly in the bag.  Better look and feel than the regular Epic same great performance.  

The fwy woods unfortunately didn't work out for me I need lower lofts and they don't make them.  Have a 3 and 5 wood Epic Star with Atmos Blue 8S for sale soon if anyone is interested.
