It was an upstart of a company that produced eye wateringly expensive premium irons and challenged the golf industry norm. Now the industry that didn’t believe it could be done wants a piece of the premium pie.
The latest entrant to answer the what-if-money-was-no-object question is Callaway’s Epic Forged. Forged from soft carbon steel and fitted with very thin clubfaces with Callaway’s 360 Face Cup for distance (several mph faster ball speed than Apex 19), the Epic Forged irons are literally packed with technology in an elegant design. Countless hours were spent perfecting every surface and detail, from the elegant platinum chrome finish, to the precise draft angles on the clubhead, even down to the exact fit of the multi-material body.
The mix of club-specific tungsten, face design, and construction allows the Epic Forged to feature the strongest lofts seen yet in a Callaway iron; a 27 degree 7-iron, that’s 6-iron territory. The strong lofts create a platform for ball speed, and it’s the other elements that ensure that speed works in concert with launch and spin.
As explained by Dr Alan Hocknell, Senior Vice President of Research and Development at Callaway Golf, “ The Epic Forged Irons offer golfers a sublimely satisfying feel at impact with incredible distance capability. They will be a market-leader in terms of ball speed. We have created an unbelievable performance combination here, and a remarkable achievement in golf club design and engineering.”
Ultra-Premium Forged Design For Pure Sound & Feel
A stunningly beautiful design with precise shaping and a platinum Chrome finish, every surface and detail was carefully considered and developed through precision engineering and meticulous craftsmanship.
Epic Forged creates pure feel, with exceptional sound and turf interaction at impact from a Forged 1025 Carbon Steel body. Patented urethane microspheres comprehensively absorb unwanted vibration without slowing the face.
Controlled Launch and Distance
For the first time ever Callaway’s Suspended Tungsten core finds its way into a forged iron. It suspends the custom tungsten weight using urethane microspheres, allowing for precise positioning of the Center of Gravity. The revolutionary design promotes controlled launch and long, consistent distance.
360 Face Cup For Faster Ball Speeds
Callaway’s renowned 360 Face Cup employs a shallow, flexible rim around the perimeter of the face that flexes and releases at impact to promote fast ball speed for long, consistent distance on center hits and off-center hits.
Spin Control VFT For Consistent Distance
A new VFT pattern provides spin and control in the mid and long irons, promoting consistent ball speed and spin rates.
To complete the performance package, Epic Forged is available in stock Aerotech Steelfiber FC and Mitsubishi Tensei AV Silver Shaft options, and Golf Pride Tour Velvet Align Silver Grips.
