I'm on a roll!!! :)

Since my Srixon ZX5 driver was the same distance as the TaylorMade Sim Max but far more forgiving I sold the Sim. It was like after the honeymoon is over the bride starts eating bon bons and gets chubby and can't do all the stuff previously.

That left a huge "void" in my driver ownership so our golf course just started carrying Callaway products and this Callaway Epic Max driver called out to me.

It is a 10.5° Callaway Epic Max driver with a Project X Cypher 5 shaft at 5.5 (reg/stiff) flex. The shaft is Project X just released Cypher 50 gm version and is a high launch high spin shaft, usually one that I would avoid and meant for geezers. What I liked about this driver was not the magic face designed by some goofy artificial intelligence robot that never played golf, but the new "jailbreak" design which is now part of the frame and stiffens the frame in all directions, not just vertically.

In any case my first (honeymoon) round playing this left me in awe. It's longer, more forgiving and smoother feeling then my other super good drivers and more adjustable. And I'm impressed by this shaft.


Now you can poke fun at me again.

Two of the guys I normally play with have the Epic Flash. Both hit the snot out of them. "Epic" drives!!! I picked up an Epic Flash and we just didn't see eye to eye. I really believe it was the shaft, rather than the driver head. My Mavrik has the "Jailbreak" technology. I've really enjoyed it. Callaway hasn't had many misses in their long history of drivers.
