Epic Flash - Hitting a Baked Potato


Recommended Posts

I tried out an Epic Flash driver.   Most of the drivers I have hit, including my Callaway GBB, have a bit of a "click" to the sound.   This Epic Flash sounded like I was hitting a baked potato.  Just a flat "splat".  Ball flew ok, good control, only average distance.  Do all Epics sound like this?   Thanks !!!

Yes, it’s more of a muted sound like the Taylormade M5 and M6.  Not a metallic sound like you are describing.  It almost “feels” softer or more solid because of the sound.

It's the carbon sound/feel.  I personally like that feeling; never really liked the "tingy" sound/feel.  I actually preferred the feel of the Rogue as I found it gave more feedback, but I'm gaming the Epic Flash.  It's pretty good.

Not sure about your baked potatoes, but I overcook mine and get a nice "click".  Unless I accessorize it with too much sour cream.

Just bought an Epic Flash... got a good deal at Callaway Pre-Owned.

I wanted to see a video of a guy hitting a baked potato with his Epic Flash. Count me as being disappointed.

Empirical evidence has yielded predictable results.  Cantaloupes are too highly dependent on ripeness plus the seeds get everywhere.  Tomatoes just don't work, messy.  Potatoes.... after 7 minutes in the microwave, very good to eat but still sound like cr@p.  

Regardless, the sound is still... fluffy, no click.  I bought it from Callaway so I have to assume it's "real" vs counterfeit.   Argh....  still sounds "weak".

What ball do you play?

I know, right?  I even turned my speakers up full blast to get the full effect.

I give this thread one out of five stars. 😁

My Epic Flash arrives today via UPS. Don't make me do a video...

Please do. That would be epic!  :-P

Wondering if Emeril Lagasse could provide me with the correct video angles for smacking a baked potato?  And what effect sour cream, butter, green onions, cheese and bacon bits would have on the sound?

    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.  
    • Day 68, August 1, 2021:  My backswing is still too long. I’m trying to get it shorter I look at it on film and it’s way too long, did some pitching length swing length feeling swings, so it’s probably half to three quarter length backswing.
    • I think he’s making a huge assumption that something he feels makes him do something, will translate to anyone else. I think tips like these come from instructors who confuse the concept of what’s natural anatomy wise isn’t natural function wise if that makes sense.
    • Vantage Point, par. It's nearly a birdie, but I can only assume Zoe Saldana dies, so… needed more loose ends tied up. Actually, I'm not 100% certain of everyone's ties. Whose brother is who? What? Huh? Maybe I just didn't pay close enough attention.
    • Thank you; in retrospect, although it now seems obvious, I (obviously) had no idea that the range needed mowing and other care. [Now what about the choice of Sunday?]
