I love my Epic.

....but Iím getting an itchy trigger finger to buy a driver and havenít found anything better from the 2018 lines.

Any ideas on what the replacement will be? Or will Rogue become the only premium driver they offer?

Not sure what you mean. Are you asking if there will be an epic 2?
The rogue "replaced" the epic as in epic came out in 17 and rogue in 18. Callaway marketing speak that suggested this was somehow not a replacement was good at preventing some erosion of the price and consumer confidence but in every way the release was a conventional progression from one year to another with the only difference being epic introduced their newest tech.

There will be a rogue replacement next year, no doubt.

Epic is still part of the line up and therefore wasn't replaced.

What will replace Epic next year? No idea.

Essentially wondering if they will bring out a driver with more of an Epic head style (the shape is the biggest thing Iím after - I dislike the more stretched out look of Rogue although I understand itís to help MOI).

Like you say, the marketing suggested it was still staying as a part of the current line up, which is what I took it as. As in, Epic is now coming towards the end of itís product cycle and will be updated (ďGreat Big EpicĒ or whatever) and Rogue will continue alongside whatever the new product launch is as Rogue is only a year into itís cycle.

It was my assumption that Callaway were now doing two-year cycles instead of every year, but different lines were being alternated each year ala Ping?

Epic is still selling well so might stay in the range a bit longer.
