The Epic hybrid is the first Callaway hybrid to employ triaxial carbon composite crown technology, the same crown material used to help fuel the groundbreaking performance of Epic drivers and fairway woods. By itself, the triaxial crown in these hybrids helped open the door to a new level of distance and playability.
Triaxial carbon is 65% lighter than titanium, creating a crown that weighs an astonishing 5 grams. That creates a tremendous amount of discretionary weight that’s been redirected into advanced Internal Standing Wave technology (ISW). The key ISW component is a 35-gram weight consisting of Metal Inject Molding (MIM’ed) tungsten. Tungsten’s heavy weight (1.7 times denser than steel) allows a concentration of the weight into a smaller space. The MIM process allows Callaway to shape the weight into the precise form necessary to better optimize CG location to promote the coveted high-launch / low-spin combination that promotes maximum distance.
Epic hybrids also employ the highest performing clubface Callaway has ever produced in a hybrid. Forged of 455 steel, it’s ultra-thin and ultra-fast, pushing the coefficient of restitution (COR) measurement right up to the USGA limit for speed. Performance is further enhanced by a new generation of Hyper Speed Face Cup technology, with a thinner rim and more flexible hinge that promotes faster ball speed across the face, including mis-hits. That helps players net added distance from one swing to the next.
The clubhead’s frame consists of high-grade steel that provides a robust structure for the crown and face while concentrating weight in key areas of the perimeter to maximize MOI and forgiveness. A low-friction sole with dual raised rails is designed to glide smoothly across turf and through rough to promote solid contact from a variety of lies.
The face and frame are precision-milled. Each clubhead component is honed to the tightest tolerance Callaway has ever achieved. Every component is robotically laser welded for exact fit and maximum integrity. This is critical to allowing each key technology to perform at the highest level, allowing Epic hybrids to deliver the finest combination of distance, control, easy launch, forgiveness, and versatility.
