Callaway Epic Driver
Is it worth buying now instead of waiting till they aren't the price of a kidney or a 2nd born child?

The Callaway marketing is working hard on me with this driver and it doesn't help matters a friend of mine has one and is ripping his drives with it. I think he traded in a bunch of clubs for it so he didn't pay full price either.

I know TD will not let me down with quality advice.

Just sell your kid. Golf is more fun than children anyway.

I hit a demo on the range about a week ago. It felt pure but I was hitting into a strong wind so I couldnt get a reading on a good distance. It was easily the lightest driver Ive ever used.

Go get fitted on a launch monitor by a certified fitter with no preconceived notions. I went into one last year wanting the Titliest or Ping, but the M2 spun 800 RPMs less with a better launch angle. I picked up 7 yards of carry and 15 total vs. my current driver and other choices.

If you're in South Louisiana, James Leitz is your guy.

I'm going to a fitting today with John Joy. He is one of the top fitters in the country. I am looking at the epic sub zero as well. I took a demo out for a couple rounds and was amazed by the distance gains and accuracy improvement compared to my current Taylor Made SLDR.

re: Callaway Epic Driver
I got fitted a few weeks ago and hit the 2017 M1/M2, 917 Titleist and Callaway Epic/Sub Zero.

I really anticipated myself hitting the Taylormades better but I hit the Sub Zero 10-12 yards farther than the others because of the lower spin I got with it. Feels really good off the face, better than the M1/M2.

Looking forward to hitting real shots with it when it comes in.

John Joy is great. I brought my Scotty over there and he got it tweaked just right for me. Really improved my short putting.

I would wait a year and it will be affordable.

I know but that means a whole golf season without it.

Epic subzero zero 10.5 is one of the best drivers I have hit in quite a while.

re: Callaway Epic Driver
If price isn't an issue then buy it. If price is an issue you're dumb for even thinking about buying the most expensive driver on the market to add 3 yards to your drive when you're playing in your weekend wolf game.

I have the SubZero 9.0* with Rogue Silver shaft. Has been insanely good.
