Callaway GBB Epic/Sub Zero/Star

Our Review:

The Epic family of drivers, Callaway's most successful launch since the 1990s, set out to change how drivers flex. Two titanium bars behind the face connect the crown to the sole, keeping the flexing at impact confined to the face. The result is maximum ball speed across a wider area of the face. Lightweight composite pieces in the crown and sole freed up mass for a rear sliding weight on the sole in the standard model, and front and back weights in the lower-spinning Sub Zero. The newest addition is the Star, which uses a shaft that's about a third lighter than typical shafts to help provide extra swing speed.

Player Comments
  • low
    I could set the slider and just carve the same shot time after time. You can feel the speed.
  • mid
    It has a balanced feel, so you know where the head is at all times.
  • high
    The shape masks how big it plays. Sounds like a loud whip made of velvet.
