    Nice write up James.

    The focus on speed and ultralight is cool.

    Going with the ATTAS Speed shaft and the higher lofts hits a specific segment (me) while using the premium materials hitting pricepoints that hit another segment (not me [emoji22])

    I liked the OG Epic Star release and I think Callaway improved on it, hoping to hit this stuff

      Definitely not in my price range, and definitely pointed at a specific demographic. More power to them, and I bet they are fun as all get out to play with. That price though. [emoji33]

        I never got to spend much time with the Epic Star, but loved the way it looked. My second driver spot is always smiling with the light weight, high launch stuff.

              Have you ever tried going the ultralight route with irons? You hit the Beres stuff really well.

              I think, for the segment of golfers who fit into this type of iron, there is a real performance boost from the light weight.

                    I think the part of the story that stands out the most to me is these are not just watered down releases for the slower swingers, if anything they’re amped up.

                    And for the prices, they again know and expect the people who buy these will be the ones where money is no issue when it comes to improving their golf games.

                        It’s been a while since I did a full fitting, probably should add that to the 2020 golf goals list

                        Would not be opposed to whichever setup is the best once the swing change is done

                          Might be the best looking clubs I have seen. Not meant for my game or in my price category, but damn these are stunning looking.

                            Thanks for the write up.

                            I like how they didn't skimp on materials and really put in some work into this release. If golfers could get out of their heads that they don't need "lighter golf clubs" this would fit more golfers than we realize. The price will initially push many away, but there is no denying the tech they put into the lineup. I'm guessing they sold better than we think or they wouldn't have brought the lineup back domestically.

                              Those look good IMO. Not sure I need the SS help yet, but not getting any younger either.
                              Driver Maybe something Flash?
