Callaway Epic Speed Fairway Wood Preview

Golf EQ Spotlight

Callaway Epic Speed Fairway Wood Overview:

Currently, the Callaway Epic Speed fairway wood is one of two Epic fairway woods in 2021 from Callaway. Importantly, the Epic Speed is described as the lower launching and lower spinning model compared to Callaway’s Epic Max fairway wood. Additionally, the Epic Speed features a deeper club face than the Epic Max that will likely make it slightly better for players that use their fairway wood from the tee more often. In this Golf EQ preview, we outline the Callaway Epic Speed fairway wood including design and specification details.

Callaway Epic Speed Fairway Wood Projected Design Benefits:

Overall, the Epic Speed has been engineered to create speed and distance. First, the Epic Speed features Callaway’s Jailbreak A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) Velocity Blades to stiffen the golf club body for more stability through impact. Second, Flash Face SS 21 on the Epic Speed fairway wood bolsters off-center strikes and hopefully retains ball speeds across the club face. Third, forged C300 maraging steel face cup technology increases face flexing that can create longer shots and more spin consistency as strikes vary. Lastly, Epic Speed fairway woods have forward centers of gravity to create a penetrating, lower spinning ball flight.

Golfers can expect the Callaway Epic Speed fairway wood to create penetrating golf ball flights. Compared to the Epic Max, the Epic Speed features a low/mid launch angle and low to mid spin. The Epic Speed fairway has a neutral flight bias that does not strongly favor draws or fades. Epic Speed fairway woods do not feature an adjustable hosel. Lofts of 13.5, 15, 16.5, 18, and 21 degrees are available.
