      Really like the exclusive intro vid with Mr Glod. Sets an exciting tone to the review. The price tag, technology, and performance make it difficult to sleep on this one. Good stuff James (btw with those numbers looks like something you can pretty much take out to the course as is).

          JMan, great write up. I have been anxiously awaiting to see your thoughts on this and you did not disappoint. I have had this club on my radar for the 2019 season and will more than likely pull the trigger when the weather starts to cooperate here.

            While the crown is a little plain looking in my opinion the blue on the sole is a nice departure from some of the other colors we have seen in drivers as of late. The price point of $299 is simply amazing considering the materials and tech that is packed into this one. Hopefully people give this a solid look when looking for a new driver this year.

              Was the crown on the Epic or Rogue plain looking? Itís the same carbon fiber fade.

                Thanks for reading all.

                And Iíll say this, and I mean it, best looking driver I have seen in 2019. In hand, it is one of the cleanest and best looking heads on the market, I have no qualms in saying that.

                  Is it? Hard to tell from the pics. If so that would change my mind, from the pic of the crown in the article it looks like a plain Titleist driver IMO. The Epic and Rogue had the pinstripe of color towards the back

                      Great write up, Jman! I like the direction TE is going, as this is the time of year where lots of golfers like to whine about price hikes from manufacturers' new releases: "I am not paying $550 for a new driver!" Hopefully these same people give this club a look.

                        Heís right! Great looking club! I think the sole is a little busy, but the crown with the carbon fiber and the blue stripe around the perimeter...very sporty and refined look. Especially, since the Flash, M5/M6, and F9 have gone to very bold, in your face colors and graphics. The new Mizuno driver might be the only better looking driver...maybe the Cortex, but I havenít seen one in person yet.

                          For the price point alone at $299, i think this will become a top performer in 2019. Getting a low spin driver brand new off the rack for half the cost of the entire rest of the market is impressive but seeing your positive review (especially with a higher SS) makes me really want to test this out this year!

                            An address pic is difficult to get any driver to show whats going on materials wise. But, that's why I mentioned in the article the carbon fiber fade, and additionally that its got maybe the prettiest deep blue metal flake mixed in and when the sun hits it, it is stellar.

                            For aesthetics, I truly put this against any driver out there, its crazy to me still how well they blended this design and cut no corners.

                              Well done, Jman!

                              As I mentioned in another thread. I "accidentally" hit this when doubling back on the 2 drivers I was fit for a couple weeks ago. I was blown away. I couldn't not hit the (virtual) fairway. The club just suits me. It feels right.

                              Now I just need to find a place locally that has more shaft/flex options so that I can dial it in and confirm it was more than a 1 night stand (gosh I hope so, I am a little too giddy about this club right now).

                              Also, I was pretty surprised by the Tensei shaft. It is far more stable than I anticipated, even in a S flex (my transition/ss is more suited for stout X flex).
