    Excellent episode. I’m using a lot more of the face than Dan but overall his experiences mirror mine with this driver.

    I posted my reaction on youtube. This was a GREAT episode, and maybe I enjoyed it a little more due to me gaming one of the 2 in question. Really agreed with the comments on the sound. In terms of misses, I've strayed much higher on the face and that is where the sound I believe suffers most. Unfortunately my performance has also taken a bit of a hit, which is understandable given the nature of the miss. Want to add, have never had a comment on course about the sound being off-putting. It's metallic, but not abrasive.

    Unrelated to the episode, but something some may be interested in. It took me a long while to tame and feel comfortable with the Rogue. A lot of tinkering was involved and eventually I did get it to a good spot for me. It has been much easier to get to the same point with the Epic Flash. Imo that's a notable improvement over the prior version.

    Lastly, Canadan's GD pullover is fire.

    Really enjoyed watching this episode. I know Dan can really hit the golf ball, but watching him laugh after a shot was pretty funny.
    You have definitely got my interest up about this driver. The results speak highly of what Callaway has here.

    This episode was a lot of fun for me for a few reasons.
    1. Dan laughing at that shot is hilarious considering, I probably would've been laughing at all his shots. Dude can drive....like Nascar level.
    2. I love seeing The Grandaddy pullover. So sick!
    3. This episode actually made sense of a lot of the mystery and magic of Flash Face for me...or maybe I should say the Flash/SZ driver package since the face, Jailbreak tech and the rest of the design are working in concern to produce these results. Seeing the efficiency nearly peak in places it probably shouldn't is pretty telling of the tech story in my opinion. None of his strikes strayed into the extremities that I often find, but it still gave credence to the driver face's ability to manage and maintain ball speed, energy transfer, and even spin in locations where the same couldn't be said before....if I'm understanding it correctly. Very cool stuff!

    Great episode again! The more of these your guys to the more comfortable you seem to be. That sub zero is silly good for you Dan. Have you ever seen spin numbers that low from a stock setup?
