Spotted: Callaway Epic Hybrid

Published

on

We spotted a new Callaway Epic hybrid on the range at the Wells Fargo Championship where it was being tested by Kevin Kisner. This comes just days after photos of new Callaway Epic irons leaked in our forum.

Kisner is playing great golf this season. Last week at the Zurich Classic, he and teammate Scott Brown finished runner-up to Cameron Smith and Jonas Blixt in a four-hole playoff. He hasn’t missed a cut since November, and has two top-5 finishes this year including a T2 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in March. Kisner is currently using a Callaway X2 Hot hybrid, which Callaway launched in 2013. The Epic hybrid he’s testing is the same loft (18 degrees), but it has a new shaft (UST Mamiya’s UST iRod).

While Callaway isn’t sharing any details about the Epic hybrid at this time, the photos show that the club has an adjustable hosel that allows golfers to tweak loft and lie angle. It also seems to have a triaxial carbon fiber crown, a key aspect of the company’s Epic drivers and fairway woods that the company used to move the center of gravity (CG) of the club heads lower and deeper. In addition, it uses Callaway’s “Speed Steps,” an aerodynamic feature on the top of the club head that reduces drag.

    Still haven’t found a better hybrid than my old Adams… looks like they’ve copied it’s shape. I like the Epic Driver a lot, so I’m not anti Callaway… just kinda skeptical about this being an improvement. I’ll try it though, if someone gives me one…

    Not sure why people feel a need to complain about new clubs. Nothing makes you have to buy them.

    Thank god the added the ‘hyper’ face speed cup. Pretty soon naming clubs is going to be like naming a band.

    Yeesh, why they have to do that to the crown. I actually prefer turbulators. I can figure out where to hit the ball without all that noise.

    The first picture looks like when my uncle cut off the tip of his finger in an industrial accident.

      Yeah man because they all crack and Callaway wont stand by their product. Go play in traffic hater.

        What is a traffic hater?
        Will Callaway stand by their product after the 2 year warranty ends? Any cracks after that will make that $300 hybrid a paperweight.

          Thanks BB where would we be without the internet comment section grammar police? After two years any cracks in the club are not going to be due to a defect in the club, which is why the whole warranty exists in the first place. Now you go play in traffic, hater.

            It is not my fault you can’t communicate effectively with your writing. Typing that comma wasn’t that hard, was it?
            If the crown cracks after 25 months of normal use, it most certainly is a defective product.

              What would a acceptable time frame be for you then? 3 years? 5 years? Until Armageddon? I don’t know if you are aware of this but over a large enough timeframe hardware failure is 100%. The sad truth is there is no way a company can be profitable with a lifetime guarantee on their golf clubs.

At GolfWRX, we love golf equipment plain and simple.

We are a community of like-minded individuals that all experience and express our enjoyment for the game in many ways. It’s that sense of community that drives day-to-day interactions in the forums on topics that range from best driver to what marker you use to mark your ball, it even allows us to share another thing – the equipment itself.

One of the best ways to enjoy equipment is to experiment and whether you are looking to buy-sell-or trade (as the name suggests) you can find almost anything in the GolfWRX BST Forum. From one-off custom Scotty Cameron Circle T putters, to iron sets, wedges, and barely hit drivers, you can find it all in our constantly updated marketplace.

These are some of the latest cool finds from the GolfWRX BST, and if you are curious about the rules to participate in the BST Forum you can check them out here: GolfWRX BST Rules

Member CC_Stryder – Toulon Rochester

Looking for a putter that gets its names from a city in New York state with a flow neck? Well…the name might not be exactly what you are looking for, but if a flow neck is what you are after, then look no further.

Member StillCantPutt – PXG BlackJack Putter

The newest putter from PXG at less than new price. Don’t let the seller’s name discourage you either, this thing should help you sink more putts.

Member KC_Badger – TP Mills Custom

There is something about TP Mills putters that just screams classic, timeless, masterpiece. This example is no exception with its flow next and unique finish.
