Epon AF-305 Irons: Players' Look + Game Improvement Forgiveness
Epon Golf’s parent company, Endo Manufacturing, is among the world’s premier forging houses, responsible for the production of many leading OEM brands over the past several decades. The beauty of the Epon brand is that Endo is now able to showcase its full production capabilities without any of the limitations in materials, design concepts or budget often associated with OEM projects.
Epon irons and wedges bring classic forged shapes into the modern technology era of thin faces, oversized shapes and enhanced forgiveness. That’s what you might expect from a company that also manufactures forged irons for some of the top brands in the game.
Advanced forging technology is the basis of Endo’s 50-year history of producing premium Japanese irons. The use of 3D tooling allows them to produce a 1-piece net part yielding consummate manufacturing performance of dimensional tolerances and surface finish.
These super-tight tolerances in weight, shape, material and grain structure can be found in Epon’s newest model, the AF-305. It’s part of a new trend in the industry: an iron that looks and feels like a players iron but has all the forgiveness of a game improvement design. The trick is to deliver game improvement qualities in a subtle fashion.
AF-305 irons appear nice and clean from the top line with minimal offset. As with all Epon forged irons, the company uses its stock and trade Japanese S20C carbon steel to create that butter-like feel associated with a forged product. The company claims it has the deepest cavity for a forged iron, allowing for optimal CG weight distribution. A lower and deeper center of gravity makes it easier to launch the golf ball, which is not a typical feature of a “players” club.
Tungsten in the toe and additional weight through a longer hosel combine to deliver a high MOI, which means help in squaring the club at impact to promote straighter shots. Relief through the leading and trailing edges of the sole ensures clean contact in all turf conditions. It also reduces the overall width of the sole, making it more visually pleasing to the better player.
