Callaway Epic irons test
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.
