Callaway EPIC Irons

Puetz Golf Price: Starting at $1,149

Callaway’s GBB Epic driver has been the top seller so far in 2017, vastly outdistancing the competition both at the cash register, and on the golf course. So, it should be little surprise that the company has invoked the name — and the technology — once again in its new iron line, which represents Callaway’s first dip into the premium market.

The Epic’s “big idea” was “jailbreak” technology, the fancy name given to stiff pieces connecting the crown and sole for greater stability and efficiency. That same construction has been applied to the Epic irons, focusing energy that would otherwise be lost at impact back into the ball.

Face cups are also used across both the Pro and standard versions of the club (a first in a Callaway Pro iron), as is a hollowed-out hosel for better weight distribution and forgiveness, plus injection-molded tungsten and steel powder — the latter at unique sizes, shapes, weights and ratios designed to maximize the effectiveness of each iron.

The net result is an increase of 0.5 miles per hour over the Apex ’16 irons released last year, and approximately a half a club in distance for your average hitter. That’s improvement worth paying for.
