PREVIEW: Callaway Epic Driver

On January 4, Callaway Golf announced their new Epic driver and fairway wood line. Despite having a peculiar and over-confident name, the Callaway Epic series has been well received by club reviewers. Could this be the best selling driver in golf this year? At the time of this writing I am still awaiting my chance to review the Callaway Epic, so in the meantime, here's a quick preview of what this club has to offer.

Callaway Epic Driver Features

The "Jailbreak" technology is highly intriguing since it's the first of its kind among OEMs. Adding physical bars on the inside of the club face is a bold move, especially since most players prefer a softer feel at impact. If anything, this tech will harden the club's feel.

So why include it?

What Is Jailbreak?
The key structural components of a driver – crown, sole and face – deform at impact. Because they’re connected, they influence each other’s dynamics. Jailbreak incorporates two slender titanium bars positioned parallel to each other behind the face, connected to the crown and sole. The size, strength and position of each bar creates a new dynamic relationship between the crown, sole and face. The result is a profound change in how the head, as a whole, behaves at impact, resulting in more speed across a much larger area of the face.
Apparently those bars are going to keep your clubhead from deforming. That sounds like a good idea, right? Who knows.
