Just Epic Head or Epic Sub Zero?


Recommended Posts

I’ve bought the sub zero and my friend uses the Epic and says it’s easier to hit, I’ve been using M3 and recently the R7 and decided I should try something else, so callaway epic sub zero appears for a good price on eBay callaway pre owned. I buy the head only as I have a shaft that suits me already, my r7 is not easy to hit and I think the sub zero will be easier to hit than the r7. Or is it true new clubs are harder to hit than older clubs, what’s your experience tell you I would like to know? If all fails I can sell right....

In my experience, new clubs are getting easier to hit due to the tech in them, the sweetspots are getting bigger aswel....

I had a R9 a few years back it was the R9 deep something or other, was a nightmare to hit when l bought, but l adapted and could bomb it by the end.

Now i game a 2020 Cobra Speedzone and it was almost an instant success, a few tweeks of the hozel, moved a weight and boom.

Ive just ordered a PXG Gen2 Driver to match my 3wood, l could not test it because of the lockdown, but like you, if l cant hit it, ill sell it

The 2nh hand club market is strong right now, so you will have no issues selling

The Epic is a bit easier to hit than the Sub-Zero, as the Sub-Zero moves the CG slightly forward which decreases spin, but makes the spin axis easier to tilt.

The M3 should have been far more forgiving than the R7 and likewise the Callaway should also be far more forgiving than the R7. Difference between the M3 and Callaway will be much smaller. As stated above the standard Epic will be a higher/straighter flying head than the subzero. Deeper CG means a higher MOI and that means if you hit the ball towards the toe, heel, high, or low on the face, the head will stay more stable and resist twisting and the resulting ball flight will be more consistent in launch and spin.

Yeah the M3 should be easier to hit but I couldn't get it setup to suit me, too many adjustments possible plus I tried the standard setup because the R7 is standard with no adjustment and I hit it well. I'm hoping the sub zero with less adjustment I will be able to set it to suit me abit easier. My average drive is 210 out to 232, that's with a draw that can become a hook, the hook is my miss which is particularly a bad shot because at Paraparaumu Beach Golf Club your in straw. That's long thick grass that means lost ball more often than not unless you have very good eyesight lol....

Chance dictated I bought the subzero head, I’m hitting the r7 8.5’ loft with reg purple ice shaft 225 metres with small draw. The subzero is 9’ loft so hoping the lower loft works for me, but I will put a epic adapter on the purple ice stiff and reg shafts. One of them should work, I’m leaning towards the stiff as I’m 90% recovered and working on getting stronger and fitter than I was before my long illness, it’s a nice feeling getting my driver to work for me....

    • A competition is set up as a series of knockout rounds but each game is played as a 'match' using strokeplay counting (ie the winner is the one with the lowest net score). Should each game/'match' be treated as a 2 man field strokeplay competition or should each player record their score as a general play score?
    • A bit of foul language, but I don't think that bothers anybody in here:    
    • I'm playing 9 holes today. Right now is is pure sun, 48* temp, and gentle breeze. I have to see how my new clubs like it on a golf course!
    • I can't speak to this condition, but I had hand surgery last summer to reattach 2 tendons in my left pinkie. Some more general thoughts from me first, and then I'll talk about my experience if you'd like. If you opt to have hand surgery, make sure you discuss the recovery process with your hand surgeon. The healing process is easy, and hand surgery is not as invasive as most other surgeries (although it looks like this surgery is way more invasive than what I had). I had basically no pain after surgery. The bitch is the physical therapy. Make sure you talk to your doctor about what physical therapy will look like for you after the surgery. Also make sure you have a hand surgeon, not any old orthopedic surgeon. Hand surgeons are way more qualified and skilled than a regular orthopedic surgeon. Finally, ask how long it will take before you can use your hand for normal activities again.  I'm basically back to normal in my pinkie and hand now, but it was a pretty intense process. I started physical therapy 2 weeks after my surgery. From 2 weeks until about 4 months after surgery, I saw a hand therapist every 2 weeks. 6 weeks after my surgery, the physical therapy got very intense. At that point, I started doing exercises on my finger every hour I was awake. I was also doing about an hour of scar massage every day to break up the scar tissue. It's been about 6 months on, and I'm still doing exercises almost every hour, trying to get that last little bit of movement back. Note that I had to learn to move my pinkie again, and I had to break through a bunch of scar tissue to get the tendon to be supple again. After 6 weeks, I was allowed to do most things, but I didn't get the okay to golf until 3 months after the surgery. I had to use dictation software at work because I could only type with one hand for a while. I couldn't really cook or, the worst part, hold my baby for 6 weeks.  The surgery itself was simple and healing was fast. Like I said, I had basically no pain. My incision was only about 1/3 of the way down my palm, though. They removed my stitches 2 weeks after the surgery without any problems. The scar is not very noticeable. Sadly, haha. I should get a better scar out of all this at least! I do not regret the decision to have surgery, because otherwise I wouldn't have been able to move my pinkie. Looking back, I wish I knew more about the recovery process in advance, because that was the most arduous part.
