Callaway Epic Flash driver vs. Epic Flash Sub Zero: NCG verdict

So are these drivers good enough to force you to part with £499? That, unfortunately, seems to be the going rate for a super-premium driver in 2019.

If you want the best products on the market, they aren’t going to come cheap.

The performance is fantastic with superb looks, sound, and feel.

The Sub Zero model does exactly what it’s supposed to do and that’s kill a bit of spin.

But it’s at the expense of a bit of forgiveness so I won’t be surprised to see lots of tour players favouring the Sub Zero.

There is no doubt in my mind that the regular Epic Flash is going to work best for the majority of club golfers.

So to what extent has this new Flash Face taken these drivers to another level?

It’s hard to gauge that at this stage as we haven’t been properly fitted yet and we haven’t put them head-to-head with other premium drivers on the market.

I’d be fairly confident that both these models will be right up there but it’s still a tall order to make significant improvements to the original Epic and Rogue models.

We’ll bring you the results of our comparison testing later in the year…
