Callaway Golf Introduces the much anticipated Callaway Epic Irons
A few years ago Callaway’s CEO Chip Brewer came to Callaway’s Head of R&D Dr. Alan Hocknell with a unique request. Chip asked, “If you could design the very best iron that you would play, if you wanted maximum performance without any limits to the cost or engineering process, what would that be?” Alan is a passionate golfer, and he was excited by the endless possibilities for such an ambitious project. Once he determined what the iron should be, he dedicated more than 70 of the best engineers in golf to the project with two key messages: we want groundbreaking innovations, and there are no boundaries.
Callaway’s engineering team had the freedom to give these irons every performance advantage by using the most ultra-premium materials and advancing some of the most revolutionary technologies in the industry. They were confident they would make something special, yet the final product greatly exceeded Callaway’s expectations. And they knew that it deserved to be called Epic.
To develop Epic irons, Callaway pushed themselves in a way that they could elevate performance to the highest level they’ve ever achieved. It had to provide the absolute best combination of ball speed, distance, forgiveness, accuracy, control and feel. And to go beyond that standard, they had to be extremely meticulous, creative and committed to carefully crafting each material.
The multi-material head consists of a variety of premium components, each precision-milled and robotically laser-welded to give Callaway engineers precise control over CG location, COR, MOI and vibration control, with maximum structural integrity. A multitude of processes, steps and inspections are required to create each head. The result is the most premium, high-performance iron ever to bear the Callaway name.
- Next-Generation 360 Face Cup Technology for Longer Average Distance
The rim of the Face Cup is 1 mm at its thinnest point for more ball speed on center hits and minimized distance loss on off-center hits.
- Exo-Cage for Energy Lensing and Maximum COR
Faster ball speed for longer distance, and it helps raise COR right up to the limit in each iron. We’ve never reached that level of speed in a full set.
- Next-Generation Standing Wave Technology to Maximize CG Location
MIM’ed tungsten in the Internal Standing Wave allowed Callaway engineers to precisely position the CG in each individual iron.
- Precision-milled and Robotically Welded
Multi-material construction demands strict tolerances, seamless fit and secure bonding to ensure maximum integrity and performance.
