You can talk about technology and go on about your innovation. You can tell golfers you’re the longest and claim to be the best. Alternatively, you can build something that’s truly epic. That’s just what Callaway did in January of 2017 when they introduced the Epic line of drivers and fairways featuring Jailbreak Technology. It’s completely redefined how the head and face react at impact. Since then, Callaway has continued off of the success of the popular Epic line and introduced the Rogue family, yet again another major success. And now, the Epic drivers and fairways are more affordable than ever! Let’s take a look back at what made the Epic family of drivers and fairways truly, well, Epic.
Jailbreak Technology was a major innovation for Callaway and created an enormous amount of buzz and excitement for consumers and Callaway engineers alike, for good reason. Largely because it creates a remarkable relationship between the face, crown and sole to promote faster ball speed across more of the face. The result is even more distance for golfers of all skill levels.
Aside from Jailbreak, Epic drivers incorporate the use of multi-material clubheads outfitted with a titanium Exo-cage with crown and sole panels made of triaxial carbon, as well as weighting systems and Speed Step aerodynamics. The Epic driver is available in two drivers the Epic and Epic Sub Zero.
The Epic employs a sliding, 17-gram weight that can give golfers a full 21 yards of shot-shape ability, while the Epic Sub Zero, the low-spin Tour model, uses a pair of interchangeable weights, 12 and two grams in size, that are positioned at the front and back of the sole – and that can be utilized in tandem with the Optifit hosel so players can adjust spin and launch angle.
As is the case with the Epic drivers, the fairways carry the same style and features in the clubhead minus the Jailbreak technology (but don’t worry, the new Callaway Rogue fairway woods incorporate Jailbreak technology, and the results are stellar). The design of the woods plus the composite material mean the Epic fairway is so light that it enabled Callaway engineers to redistribute weight in ways that increase forgiveness, distance, and make them easier to launch.
In addition, these clubs employ Hyper Speed Face Cup, which is more efficient in delivering faster ball speeds across more of the clubface, as well as Speed Step, a technology that improves aerodynamics and allows golfers to swing faster without extra effort.
As with its Epic drivers, the Callaway Epic fairway is available in two models. The GBB (for Great Big Bertha) Epic and the GBB Epic Sub Zero. They share all of the above features, with the Sub Zero also being adjustable, bearing two interchangeable weights in the sole to fine-tune launch, trajectory, and spin rate.
