Call­away’s new Epic irons are among the most ex­pen­sive cur­rently on sale. So what does £1,700 a set ac­tu­ally buy?

They’re ex­pen­sive, so do they de­liver next to a set of Apex 16s?

Cre­at­ing golf clubs with­out wor­ry­ing about how much they cost is every de­signer’s idea of heaven. It’s ul­ti­mate free­dom, and means you’re not con­strained with hit­ting price points, or ac­count­ing for every com­po­nent.

Call­away boss Chip Brewer chal­lenged his head of R&D Alan Hock­nell to de­sign his ul­ti­mate set of irons with a sim­i­lar open cheque book pol­icy, and the Epics are the £1,749 (a set) fruits of his labour. It’s re­ally dif­fi­cult to put a price on premium, so to see if there is a dis­cernible dif­fer­ence between Call­away’s new top of the range Epic/epic Pros and the bril­liant Apex CF 16s, we put them in the hands of our TG test pro Chris Ryan.
