It's actually called the Epic Flash.

I think "hold my beer" would be a worse name than that to be honest

Isn't the Epic's successor the Rogue?  So the Epic Flash would be the Rogue's successor?

Maybe Callaway has contracted with Marvel Comics regarding a new "superhero" line of clubs. So many possibilities out there. I'm holding out for the Hulk, but seems the Epic Flash has already stolen the color scheme. Can't wait to see the matching bag and other accessories.

Apparently second choice was Epic Fail.....

Has anyone got any idea what colour scheme this years model will be? The original green of the Epic was quite tasteful, certainly compared to the Rogue
.
Also, the fact that Iím interested more in the colour than anything else probably says a lot about my expectations for real improvements in tech or performance.

I think I read the biggest problem with naming clubs is copyright violation or some other legal stuff.

In a few months everyone will be talking about their new Epic Flash. The talk will be the usual spin rate, distance, settings, etc. and nothing not a word about the name.
