THE TECH

Jail­break tech­nol­ogy sees two ti­ta­nium rods con­nect the crown to the sole be­hind the face, which Call­away says stiff­ens the head to boost ball speeds. An exo-cage body struc­ture is paired with a car­bon crown and sole. 12g and 2g sole weights can be in­ter­changed to lower spin or in­crease launch.

OUR VER­DICT

Call­away says “jail­break” tech­nol­ogy can add 3mph of ball speed to any­one’s game, and the fact that Rory has put a Sub Zero into play when he’s not get­ting paid to use one is a very good en­dorse­ment. It’s im­por­tant to un­der­stand that the Sub Zero (with its 12g weight in the back port) has a higher MOI than the stan­dard Epic driver, which means more for­give­ness even though its neu­tral cen­tre of grav­ity means it’s slightly harder to launch shots, par­tic­u­larly at lower swing speeds. Its foot­print looks a frac­tion larger than the stan­dard Epic at ad­dress, but our testers were split over the busy crown cos­met­ics and which Epic was best suited to them. Our two am­a­teurs recorded their long­est av­er­age carry dis­tances with the Sub Zero, while the av­er­age carry for all three was long­est on test – by half-a-yard over the M2.
