The Curated Take

Callaway has been known to turn out some of the longest distances and the Epic Max driver is no exception. Almost all golfers look for a few things off the tee, distance, forgiveness, and launch, this driver excels in all three of those categories. The biggest drawback are sound and workability, but if you're driving it well down the fairway, does that even matter? I would recommend this driver for players of all skill levels.

Product details

The Callaway Epic MAX Driver is designed to deliver a wide array of golfers' tee shot games a boost in both distance and directional control, along with hosel adjustability and a draw-biased center of gravity optimized to reduce the effects of slice spin. With Callaway's advanced torsional control technologies, the Epic Max offers many players a high-launching, fast-ball-speed driver with exceptional stability for powerful forgiveness.

Key Features:

  • High Forgiveness – Repositioning saved weight from a light Triaxial Carbon crown deepens the center of gravity and delivers draw bias and maximized MOI (Moment of Inertia or, in other words, resistance to twisting) for tighter downrange dispersion.
  • Jailbreak Speed Frame – Constructed to enhance horizontal, as well as vertical torsional stability, a newly devised Jailbreak Speed Frame ramps up ball speeds from impacts across the face.
  • A.I. Flash Face SS21 – Derived from Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) Technology and engineered to work in coordination with the Jailbreak Speed Frame, face and head geometry is uniquely enhanced in the driver for impressive spin robustness.
  • Adjustable Perimeter Weighting – Constructed with a 16g sliding rear weight combined with an Opti Fit‚ the adjustable hosel provides up to 20yd of shot-shape correction to overcome any unwanted trajectory.

This product is excellent for players that are just getting into the game, or also high handicappers that need all the help they can get off the tee. In addition, the slight draw bias with the perimeter weighting slide offers loads of adjustability to the player whose ball flight changes often (left and right flights). Individuals also looking for a higher launching club will benefit greatly from this driver as the weight and launch characteristics are perfect for someone who hits it low. The Epic Max is also a great buy when the club is on sale as the new models will be several hundred dollars more and this is a steal for golfers who don't necessarily need the latest and greatest technology in their clubs.

Pros
  • Extremely forgiving for players that don't always find the middle
  • Slight draw bias with additional perimeter adjustability
  • Great for launching the ball higher in the air
Cons
  • Driver sound is very loud and pingy and will not be a good fit for someone who likes a muted club

Honestly thought this was the most amazing driver ever released by Callaway. I was always a hug Big Bertha fan, and then tried the Epic and all i can say is wow. the Distance, forgiveness, and the consistency was unreal. The amount that the max could be adjusted on the fly was insane. This is a great driver for all abilities.

Pros
  • One of the greatest clubs Callaway made
  • Superior distance
  • incredible forgiveness and adjustability
Cons
  • Not the newest anymore
Expert Q&A
Quick, accurate answers from Curated experts to the frequently asked questions
Is Callaway epic driver good for high handicappers?
The Callaway Epic Max driver is an awesome driver for high handicappers. The Maximized MOI, Jailbreak Speed Frame and AI Flash Face all work together to create a super forgiving club when players don't find the middle. In addition, this club is very high launching so you won't have to worry about hitting it low. Fight a slice? This club has a draw bias built in, as well as a perimeter weighting system to fine-tune the club to YOUR ball flight. The Epic Max option specifically, compared to the Epic Max LS and the Epic Speed, is the most "game-improvement" version to help out high handicappers. Definitely a great option for someone starting out, or someone looking for some extra assistance off the tee.
