This thread sorta veered off the rails into a "G400 vs. Epic" battle, and I can't resist chiming in on the feel of both drivers.
Because of the jailbreak technology, the face on the Epic feels HARD. In fact, I can't think of another driver I've hit in the past 3 years that has a feeling anywhere close to the Epic.
To me, the Epic is like hitting a ball with concrete rather than a trampoline.
The G400, on the other hand, has a very acoustic, "shelled" feeling on pure strikes that we are all probably used to by now. Similar-feeling drivers include the AeroBurner, SLDR, G (with the G400 being a clear improvement), BioCell+, and the RBZ.
Because of its massively lower center of gravity and carbon crown, the 2016 M2 feels a lot like the Epic to me, but the Epic is clearly an improvement on this type of driver design.
Honestly, I think once you hit 170mph+ ball speeds, the Epic feels so hard relative to other drivers that it becomes a yuge negative. That said, it offers impressive ball speed retention all over the face, and it is definitely a solid club.
I can't get over the acoustics, tho. But this is a G400 thread, and acoustics are one of many areas where the G400 shines.
