Just got my second epic weight and it’s 17 grams and I just need an extra 11. My buddy in NY has a 2015 GBB that he doesn’t game with two weights and would mail me one if it fits. Anyone know?

GBB Epic 9° Aldila Rogue I/O 60s
XR16 14° Aldila Rogue Silver 70s
DOT 18° Fubuki AX f75s
Razr X Tour 21° Fubuki AX h400s
Apex 4 iron KBS Tour-V 110s

No, it will not fit.

Straight from the mouth of a Callaway Pro Tour Rep who works on the European Tour, Asian Tour and Australasian PGA Tour (not me).

Thanks for the info guys.  Eh, they seem to be going for $25.  For that price, I’d rather put Hotmelt in where I want it and sell my extra weight.

Saw my club guy today to have my 3 wood built, install a fubuki alpha in a new adapter and to tip my rogue i/o that already had the adapter .75 inches and reinstalled.  Both of my epic weights weighed 17 grams so i was going to have him add about 9 grams of melt to my head buttttt... he had a GBB so i tried and it fit PERFECT.  Even moves freely from one end to the other and tightens just as good. Here's some info in case anyone will find it useful..

Driver with two weights, 17g and 11g weighs 212g with the cally adapter. Had it built to same length as my gamer which swingweights at D4 at 44.75". The epic swingweights at D5 with an aldila rogue i/o 60s and D4.5 with the fubuki alpha 60s.  

XR16 3+ with aldila rogue silver 70s came in at 42.75 and D4 with about 6 grams of hotmelt added.  My gamer x2hot non pro with fubuki alpha 70s is 43" and also D4.

I didn't think it'd work either when I had the GBB weight in my hands.  Looked much narrower than the epic weight.
