Callaway Golf Announces Epic Star

The advanced design and innovative, speed-enhancing technologies of GBB Epic metalwoods and irons have helped many golfers hit consistently longer, straighter shots. Now, Callaway’s new GBB Epic Star line builds on that performance-profile by incorporating an ultra-premium, ultra-light component platform that further enhances speed and power for players seeking the highest level of quality and performance.

Every head and face is precision-milled and robotically laser welded for exact fit and maximum integrity. The finest in lightweight components are incorporated, including Mitsubishi’s Grand Bassaragraphite shafts and Tour-proven Golf Pride® J200 grips. Everything is engineered to work in conjunction with Callaway’s finest performance-enhancing technologies to promote easy speed, distance, accuracy and playability from tee to green.

Epic Star Driver

The lighter the club, the faster the swing speed. Weighing just 286 grams, the Epic Star driver is Callaway’s lightest driver. That works in conjunction with our ball speed-enhancing Jailbreak Technology to help players of all types break their personal distance barrier.

Key components:

• Jailbreak technology radically changes how the head behaves at impact to promote faster ball speed

• Ultra-light Exo-cage head construction consists of 46% lightweight triaxial carbon and a 9.7-gram crown

• Premium, ultra-light 39-gram Grand Bassaradriver shaft, made in Japan by Mitsubishi® (first sub-40 gram shaft in a Callaway

driver) uses a proprietary MR70 carbon fiber material to promote distance and control

• 11-gram sliding Adjustable Perimeter Weight (6 grams lighter than GBB Epic)

• 41-gram Golf Pride® J200 grip

• Fixed, lightweight hosel (7 grams lighter than OptiFithosel)

• 10.5° & 12° loft

• $699.99 MAP

Features & Benefits

Increased Swing Speed and Distance from Premium, Ultra-light Components Ultra-light 286-gram total weight based on 39-gram Mitsubishi Grand Bassarashaft, 41-gram Golf Pride® J200 grip, 9.7-gram triaxial carbon crown.

Increased Ball Speed and Distance from Jailbreak Technology Innovative ball speed technology that profoundly changes how the head and face behave at impact to promote more speed across a larger area of the face for increased average distance.

Maximum Forgiveness from Exo-Cage Construction Innovative titanium Exo-cage with ultra-light triaxial carbon crown and sole moves more weight to the perimeter for high MOI, high launch and low spin.

Faster Head Speed from Industry-leading Aerodynamics Streamlined head with proprietary Speed Stepto improve airflow for more swing speed and distance without extra effort.

Epic Star Fairway Woods

Effortless launch, long distance and exceptional accuracy made possible by a combination of an ultra-light shaft and grip, low CG and fast speed across the face.

Key components:

• Ultra-light triaxial carbon crown

• Premium ultra-light 49-gram Mitsubishi Grand Bassarafairway wood shaft, made in Japan by Mitsubishi®

• 41-gram Golf Pride® J200 grip

• Fixed, lightweight hosel

• 15° 3-wood, 18° 5-wood, 21° 7-wood

• $399.99 MAP

Features & Benefits

Increased Swing Speed and Distance from Premium, Ultralight Components Ultralight 302-gram total weight based on 49-gram Mitsubishi Grand Bassarashaft, 41-gram Golf Pride® J200 grip, 5.8-gram triaxial carbon crown.

Faster Ball Speed from Next-Generation Face Cup Technology More efficient at delivering faster ball speed across a larger area of the face, especially on mis-hits, for increased average distance.

Faster Head Speed from Speed StepTechnology Developed with direct input from aerospace experts to improve aerodynamics for faster swing speed and distance without extra effort.

Easy Launch from High MOI and Low CG Weight saved by the ultra-light triaxial carbon crown (78% lighter than steel*) is repositioned to increase MOI and lower the CG for easy launch and longer, straighter shots.

Epic Star Hybrids

Exceptionally powerful, forgiving, accurate and easy-to-launch performance based on a combination of advanced Face Cup technology, advanced Standing Wave technology for exceptionally low CG location, and an ultra-lightweight grip and shaft.

Key components:

• Ultra-light triaxial carbon composite crown

• Premium, ultra-light 55-gram Grand Bassaragraphite hybrid shaft, made in Japan by Mitsubishi®

• 455 Forged Hyper Speed Face Cup

• Tungsten-infused Metal-Injection Molded (MIM’d) Standing Wave

• Fixed, lightweight hosel

• 41-gram Golf Pride® J200 grip

• 18° #3, 20° #4, 23° #5

• $299.99 MAP

Increased Swing Speed and Distance from Premium, Ultra-light Components Ultra-light club weight with stronger lofts and longer lengths, a lightweight, fixed hosel and a 50-gram Grand Bassaragraphite shaft.

Faster Ball Speed from 455 Hyper Speed Face Cup Next-generation 455 Forged Hyper Speed Face Cupis more efficient at delivering faster ball speed across the face, especially on mis-hits, for increased average distance.

Maximum Forgiveness from the Ultra-light Triaxial Carbon Crown Weight saved by the ultra-light triaxial carbon crown (which is significantly lighter than steel) is repositioned to increase MOI and lower the CG for easy launch and longer, straighter shots.

Easy Launch from Metal Injection Molded Tungsten-Infused Standing Wave Precisely shaped MIM’ed tungsten Internal Standing Wave allows an extremely low and deep CG that promotes easy launch and long-carrying flight.

Epic Star Irons

Epic Star irons feature a remarkable combination of industry-leading ball speed technologies, low-deep CG locations, multimaterial construction and an ultra-light component package.

Key components:

• Exo-cage construction

• Premium ultra-light 55-gram Grand Bassaragraphite iron shaft, made in Japan by Mitsubishi®.

• 360 Face Cuptechnology

• Metal Injection Molded (MIM’d) Tungsten-Infused Standing Wave

• Lightweight hollow hosel

• 4-9 irons, PW, AW, GW, SW

• $300 per club

Features & Benefits

Increased Swing Speed and Distance from Premium, Ultra-light Components Ultra-light 55-gram Grand Bassaragraphite iron shaft combines with stronger lofts and longer lengths to generate a significant boost in distance.

Longer Average Distance from Next-Generation 360 Face CupTechnology Face Cup rim is 1 mm at its thinnest point to promote even more ball speed on center hits and further minimizing distance loss on off-center hits.

Maximum COR for Fast Ball Speed from Exo-Cage Head Construction Exo-cage head construction stiffens the body to allow the face to take on more impact-load and raises the COR close to the limit in each iron, promoting faster ball speed for longer distance.

Optimized CG Location from Metal Injection Molded Tungsten-Infused Standing Wave Technology Incorporating tungsten in the Internal Standing Wave allows precise CG positioning in each clubhead: Lower in the long-irons for easier launch and long-carry; higher in the short-irons for a lower, more controllable flight.
