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?

    • @Shorty, @boogielicious, and @iacas thank you for adding well-reasoned and factual statements to counter @Billy Z’s nonsense.   While I tend to agree to a limited extent that people can be overly sensitive these days, “Indian” and the equivalent (“red skins” and the like) are, as all of you pointed out, offensive—and not just a nitpicky level of sensitivity—but offensive to all reasonable people, given historical context and usage. Therefore, I think the ball club made the right decision. However, I’m not a fan of “guardians,” but I’m happy to see the change. 
    • This nails it. And if he read this he’d think..’yeah…another minion.’ 
    • In the video, one of them had #7 as their favorite hole 🙂 Then sadly he liked #9 Here are my course reviews... Lac La Belle - 6.0/10 Visually this course is good. The mix of fescue, bunkers, and marshy areas outline the holes nicely. There is a lot of target golf going on here. Some of the holes were a bit wonky, like hole #2. Also, the 600 yard par 5 was kind of bad. I am just glad that the fescue was not thick and tall, it was very playable from. If not, this course would be unbearable. The massive putting green with basically a putt putt course was really fun. In the end, it's a good course, but I would not enjoy playing this course a lot. Just too much target golf.  Course Layout - 5/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Lawsonia - 7.0/10 I really enjoyed this course. It has a unique style that isn’t around my area. Holes 1 thru 8 were good. For me, a bit too many blind tee shots. Holes 9-18 were more open from the tee. Luckily, there wasn’t much in the terms areas the ball would end up unplayable on the holes with blind tee shots. If you aimed over the mounds, and hit a decent shot you would have a shot at the green. There was a good variety of holes. This course was really fun to play.  Course Layout - 7/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 6/10, Clubhouse - N/A Mammoth Dunes - 8.0/10 A visually stunning course. It is much more of a friendly course than Sand Valley due to the green complexes having more areas to feed the ball into the green on errant shots. Each hole was like a problem to solve off the tee even though there was wide landing areas. I really enjoyed playing this course. The first tee shot of the day was really awesome teeing off from an elevated tee over looking over the expanse of the property. It really gives you a sense of the grand scale of the course. The bins of water on the course were nice since  you have to walk the course.  Course Layout - 8/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Sand Valley - 8.5/10 A visually stunning golf course. The green complexes are tough with a premium on hitting the flat areas or areas with backstops. Balls would routinely run off the edges where severe slopes were located at. When you miss the green, you usually had a few options to play. Mostly, the high risk through the air or try to putt it to a spot on the green for a longer putt. I think the back nine is much stronger than the front nine. Overall, I prefer the test of this course.  Course Layout - 9/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Bonus - Sandbox - 10/10 This little gem of a course is just a joy to play. Each green complex is unique and with the variety of pin placements and tee boxes changing daily, each time playing is slightly different. I thoroughly looked forward to starting every day at the Sandbox.
