www.call­away­golf.com Lofts: 9°, 10.5°, 13.5° Stock shafts: Aldila Rogue Max, Project X HZRDUS T800, Fu­jikura Pro Green, MRC Dia­mana M+ Green Ad­justable hosel: Yes How much loft change: -1°/ +2° TECH: “Jail­break” tech sees two ti­ta­nium rods con­nect the crown to the sole be­hind the face which Call­away says stiff­ens the head for faster ball speeds. A 17g slid­ing perime­ter weight of­fers up to 21 yards of shape cor­rec­tion.

WE SAY: The choice be­tween Epic and Sub Zero isn’t quite as clear cut as M1 and M2, as both Epics have ad­justable weight­ing. We see the Epic as of­fer­ing ball flight cor­rec­tion (via either a draw or fade shot bias) whereas the Sub Zero of­fers spin ad­just­ment. Our test pro pre­ferred the Epic, and car­ried drives on av­er­age five yards fur­ther with it, which high­lights how Sub Zero isn’t al­ways the best so­lu­tion for hard hit­ters.

VER­DICT: There’s no doubt Call­away has hit on some­thing with their new Jail­break tech. All three testers saw some im­pres­sive num­bers from the Epic. And we don’t think you’ll find a bet­ter sound­ing driver in 2017 – muted, yet pow­er­ful.
