Callaway Epic Forged irons

Attention players who enjoy exceptional looks, feel and performance—and who are willing to pay a premium price: The new Epic Forged irons ($300/each) have arrived. They’re literally packed with tech, but at the same time maintain an elegant appearance. The heads are forged from soft carbon steel and fitted with very thin faces. They also feature Callaway’s 360 Face Cup technology for big-time distance.

Precise CG locations and controlled trajectory in each iron is produced by a tungsten core wrapped in a TPU material and suspended in urethane microspheres (similar to the Rogue design). This allows the heads to absorb unwanted vibration without impeding clubface flex at impact.

To further enhance both control and distance, the long irons feature variable face thicknesses for more consistent spin rates, while the short irons are built with MIM’d tungsten weights higher in the clubhead for more precise shotmaking. The package is topped off with the highest quality components, including Aerotech Steelfiber FC or Mitsubishi AV Silver shafts and Golf Pride Tour Velvet Align Silver grips.

We know, $300 a stick isn’t exactly a bargain, but if you’re in the market for ultra-premium-looking and -performing irons, the Epic Forged is a must-try.
