Detailed look at Callaway's Epic Flash drivers and woods

The new Callaway Epic Flash drivers once again demonstrate why the brand is one of the leading innovators in driver design.

New Flash Face Technology And Carpenter Steel Face Cup For Fast Ball Speed Callaway engineers applied learnings from Artificial Intelligence to create a new fairway wood face design that promotes increased ball speed for longer distance.

The new club continues with Callaway's Jailbreak technology, which has face-wide speed thanks to the connection of the crown and sole by the two Jailbreak bars. Epic is without a doubt one the most popular pieces of golf equipment released in recent years and the gains in performance and speed that Jailbreak delivered were simply incredible.

As we mentioned earlier this week, club face technology is becoming the new hot thing: Ping has its forged T9S+ faces in the G400 series, Cobra pioneered CNC milled driver faces, and TaylorMade announced yesterday that it's equipping the M5/M6 drivers with near illegal faces, that are only brought back into USGA compliance with Speed Injected Twist Face (which is a tad misleading, considering the speed injection is actually slowing things down).

Callaway officials said that when they design a new face for a driver it can take anywhere from eight to 10 tries before getting the final product.

I don't think I'm alone when I say this, but I don't think anyone was expecting that Callaway's Epic Flash pièce de résistance-the Epic Flash club face-was designed by artificial intelligence.

For players who generate excessive spin, Callaway has made a Sub Zero version of the Epic Flash fairway woods. Behind the AI Technology which developed Callaway's new driver face?

Previous missions to the earth-facing side of the lunar surface by the ESA and India have been described as "controlled crashes". The area available for the landing is only one eighth of that for Chang'e-3, and is surrounded by mountains as high as 10 km.

Callaway's new Epic Flash Driver features the new AI developed face technology, created by Callaway's new $5million super computer and machine learning.

Apart from the Flash Face, Callaway's 2019 driver has a suite of features the company says creates their most innovate and technically advanced drivers ever. Golfers can influence shot shape a lot or a little by positioning the weight at different points on the track.

Additionally, this is also the first Sub Zero driver to include Callaway's Adjustable Perimeter Weighting (APW) technology, consisting of a 12-gram sliding weight on a track located at the back of the head.

New T2C Triaxial Carbon Crown Material for Higher MOIA new lighter triaxial carbon fabric called T2C has a tighter weave; the weight it saves is redistributed within the head to raise MOI for exceptional forgiveness on off-center hits. "Without the help of A.I. and machine learning we couldn't have come up with this design".

R&D boss Dr Alan Hocknell told us: "The Flash Face of the fairway looks completely different to the driver, but still embodies the same design principles". The bars stiffen the front of the head, so at impact more energy is returned to the shot instead of deforming the head and being wasted.

New OptiFit Hosel for Easy Launch and Optimal FlightCallaway designed an entirely new hosel system that's shorter and lighter; the saved weight is used to reposition the CG for easy launch and high, long-carrying flight.
