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.

        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.

Bettinardi unveils new 2023-2024 Queen B line of putters

Published

on

Bettinardi Golf has today introduced its new Queen B Series of putters that includes four timeless models.

The 2023-2024 Queen B Series enhances the Queen B 6 & Queen B 11, while also introducing two brand-new models, the Queen B 14 and Queen B 15.

The entire series is crafted using 303 Stainless Steel and features an all-new Caramel Copper PVD finish, which aims to not only accentuates the classic beauty of each model but also optimize visual cues on the greens to give a confidence-inspiring appearance at every crucial putt.

In addition, the new Queen B line debuts Bettinardi Golf’s new Mini Honeycomb face milling. This newly developed face utilizes an 8% smaller machine tool in order to provide the softest Honeycomb face to date.

“By utilizing an even smaller machining tool during the milling process, we were able to remove more material from the face of the putter, creating a softer feel at impact. Since 1998, Bettinardi putters have been world-renowned for our Honeycomb face milling. Twenty-five years later, my patented face continues to evolve and produces one of the most recognizable looks and feels in golf.” – Bob Bettinardi, CEO/Founder of Bettinardi Golf

The 2023-2024 Queen B Series will be available for pre-order on Tuesday, November 22nd online at Bettinardi.com, and will be available for purchase at authorized Bettinardi dealers worldwide, starting January 17th.

Bettinardi adds BB28 putter to brand’s BB series

Published

on

Bettinardi has today unveiled the addition of the BB28 to its BB series line.

The BB28 features Aggressive Flymill face milling designed to give the putter a responsive, yet soft feel off the putter head, and offers a full-flange design, which provides greater perimeter weighting and higher M.O.I.characteristics.

This latest addition uses a PVD (Physical Vapor Deposition) finishing technology, which is a thin, yet resilient coating that shows off the mill marks in an artisan way.

Each BB Series putter is one-piece milled from 303 Stainless Steel, which is the same blend of material preferred by all Bettinardi Tour staffers, with the metal offering a more durable, responsive, and solid feeling putter for optimal performance.

Bettinardi have also launched the center shaft BB28 putter featuring a 1/4 toe-hang wide-body blade, as well as a BB28 Armlock containing a near-face-balanced wide-body blade.

The BB28 model is available for pre-order at Bettinardi.com ($430) from November 22nd and at retail on January 22nd.
