took an opportunity today while vacationing in FL to compare the Epic Zero vs the Ping G400LS with the stock Tour shaft in X from Ping (nice shaft by the way) against the zero with an X in the Fuji Pro. Zero at 9* and G400LS at 7.5.
Ping launched higher at 7.5 than the Zero and was consistently straiter and avg 8 yards more carry than the Callaway offering. Zero rolled out better and closed the overall avg to 5 yards behind the Ping. I never tried lofting up with the Callaway as I was not a fan at all of the feel of this club. It is very Harsh imo. It has a dead hard feel to this head that is not appealing at all to me. The Ping SS was better as well up 1.2 mph on avg and Balls speeds were higher with the Ping as well (+0.7 avg). Pretty sound beating of the Epic subzero by the 400LS tech as well in lower spin, ball speeds, carry, and overall distance.
The biggest factors with Ping's win, the Ping feels so much better than the Sub zero and was much more accurate as the 7.5 Ping just went strait consistently and the sub zero has a soft fade consistent as well. Spin avg 2100 with the LS and 2350 with the Callaway. SS avg 104 with subzero and 105 with the Ping.
Appearance is so subjective that all I can say is they both frame the ball very nicely. I'd call this even or leave it up to each individual to see what he likes. I'm not a fan of the green at all but the club did set up nice at address from Callaway. I'm currently playing a Ping G LS so I have no problems with the new head.
Ping defeated the Callaway Sub zero epic in every area for this scratch golfer. Looks like the Ping G400LS will be an Epic Killer.
