Epic Callaway Speed Driver
OUR ADVICE: It’s good to have options. With Callaway’s new Epic Max and Epic Speed look, the testers found two equally appealing packages: one designed for those who need a little more forgiveness and another for the top player looking for a penetrating launch. “I could put both in the bag,” said one tester. “Both were fantastic on misfires, and the Speed’s flatter flight was very consistent. I totally saw myself throwing a Speed and a Max 5-wood with a strong loft to throw it high. It sounds really appealing. Don’t be surprised if other golfers follow suit. THE DETAILS: While the new Jailbreak system in the pilot is sure to generate the most interest, it’s actually not the only club receiving a full makeover. Epic fairways feature Jailbreak AI Velocity blades that are wider apart to stiffen the structure, allowing the C300 maraging steel shell to flex on impact. The forward center of gravity location on Epic Speed, combined with a new cutting edge design, promotes powerful ball flight with less spin. An oversized head and shallow face make Epic Max an ideal option for a wider range of disabilities. The pitch and spin can be changed depending on the location of the two sole weights (2 and 14 grams). Discover more than 150 opinions from our equipment experts in the ClubTest 2021 collection
