Introducing the Callaway Epic Forged Irons, the latest iron from Callaway that is designed to help the player.
Let's take a look at what Callaway are saying: The Epic Forged Irons are an ultra-premium, stunningly beautiful iron, developed from precision engineering and meticulous craftsmanship for incredible forged performance.
The Epic Forged Irons feature:
- Ultra-Premium Forged Design For Pure Sound & Feel
- Controlled Launch and Distance From the Suspended Tungsten Core
- 360 Face Cup For Industry-Leading Ball Speeds
- Spin Control VFT For Consistent Distance
- Ultra-Premium Components
So with that said, let's take a look for ourselves.....
First look standing over the ball, the Epic Forged looks better than anticipated. With a much more thin top line than expected and hardly any noticeable offset, the Epic Forged looks magnificent at address.
Utilizing Flightscope launch monitor technology we began our test. From the first swing, the Epic Forged felt extremely soft and didnt resemble your standard game improvement iron. The Epic Forged iron felt great.
When looking over the numbers, we have to bear in mind that this is a game improvement iron and the lofts resemble this (27 Degree 7 Iron compared to traditional 35 degree 7 Iron). The numbers were still strong however, comparing it to my same lofted club (27 Degree 5 Iron), the Epic Forged was carrying 8 meters further, averaging a carry distance of 188 meters.
Overall, the Callaway Epic Forged Irons look incredible and performed extremely well when tested. The price point of these irons however is a stumbling block for most people. These irons retail at $220 more per iron than most on the market. If you have the money to afford these then my recommendation is that you go out and test them as they perform unbelievably well and would be in the running for best performing game improvement iron on the current market.
Overall Rating: 8.5/10 (Points lost for the price)
