SEE THE 'JAILBREAK TECHNOLOGY' BEHIND EPIC DRIVERS IN THIS VIDEO C ALLAWAY Golf has introduced the GREAT BIG BERTHA EPIC and it’s already making waves on Tour. American Adam Hadwin carded 59 at the Career Builder Challenge two weeks ago using the new driver for the first time. The week before, Kevin Kisner increased his driver distance and shot a 60. Many of Callaway’s players who have switched to the Epic have said it is the best sounding driver they’ever hit. The great dispersion with Epic gives them a good feel for the carry distance that they could rely on for each tee shot, which is critical for all the tight landing areas that they hit into on Tour. Great Big Bertha Epic incorporates Callaway’s innovative new Jailbreak ball speed technology. Jailbreak changes the fundamental way the head behaves at impact to promote more distance for every type of player. The key structural components of a driver – crown, sole and face – deform at impact. Because they’re connected, they influence each other’s dynamics. Jailbreak incorporates two slender titanium bars positioned parallel to each other behind the face, connected to the crown and sole. The size, strength and position of each bar creates a new dynamic relationship between the crown, sole and face. The result is a profound change in how the head, as a whole, behaves at impact, resulting in more speed across a much larger area of the face. Epic’s clubhead also consists of Callaway’s new aerospace-grade titanium Exo-cage outfitted with a crown and sole panels made of triaxial carbon, an extraordinarily light and strong composite material developed by Callaway. Epic’s multi-material structure is incredibly light and strong, with high moment of inertia (MOI) and a low, deep-back centre of gravity that makes it ultra-easy to launch the ball on a high angle with low spin.
