Key features of the Epic Star Driver 

Weight

Callaway left no stone unturned when designing Epic Star.  This club was originally released in Japan in January. Every material in the club was selected with the lightest weight in mind.

The driver has a lightweight titanium head similar to many other drivers. However, Callaway opted to use triaxle carbon fiber in the head to create an overall weight of just 9.7 grams. Amazing!

The stock shaft in the Epic Star is a Mitsubishi Rayon Grand Bassara.  This shaft weighs 39 grams and is lighter than the stock shaft in most drivers manufactured today. And, the stock grip is the Golf Pride J200.

Technology

Callaway has used the Jailbreak technology in this one, which was introduced in 2017. Jailbreak Technology is two rods that extend from the crown to the sole of the driver.  It is designed for the flexing of the smaller area, providing better results on center hits.

Power

With its overall weight (286 grams), 460 cc head featuring Jailbreak Technology, the Epic Star is built for power. All of this is best if you are a professional and play fast shots.
