Q & A

Callaway Men's GBB Epic Driver

Jailbreak Technology Unleashing Faster Ball Speeds

As a company, Callaway seemingly has produced great drivers year after year, but with the advent of Jailbreak Technology, the new GBB Epic drivers, both the standard model and the Sub Zero model, have exceeded all others in terms of buzz and excitement. The primary reason for that have been the sizeable increases that Callaway has seen in ball speeds during testing. Keying those increases is Jailbreak Technology, which utilizes two titanium rods within the construction of the Epic drivers that connect the crown and sole to keep the clubface from expanding and losing energy transfer at impact. Also of note, the Epic drivers feature an extremely low, deep CG placement that was enabled by the use of lightweight triaxial carbon in the design and the result is high launch, low spin, and increased MOI. Additionally, a Speed Step on the crown reduces air drag during the swing to help increase swing speed. Both GBB Epic models are 460cc but the standard Epic has a weight track around the perimeter of the club that allows a 17-gram weight to be moved to help players create a ball flight bias or combat a typical miss, and it also has a slightly shallower profile. Callaway is also again utilizing its OptiFit hosel, which allows players to adjust loft by +2/-1 degrees and additional draw settings are also available. The GBB Epic driver is available in standard lofts of 9, 10.5, and 13.5 degrees, it comes at a stock length of 45.5 inches, the swing weight is D3, and custom paintfill options are are also available. It also features stock shaft offerings from Mitsubishi, Project X, Fujikura, and Aldila in varying weight classes, flexes, and launch/spin profiles to suit the needs of any player (see shaft chart below for more details).

Ideal For:

Players of all ability levels. The GBB Epic driver offers what pretty much every golfer is looking for in terms of impressive ball speeds, incredible forgiveness, low spin, and high launch. Additionally, between the OptiFit hosel and the weight track on the sole, there’s ample customization for players to achieve exactly what they’re looking for in terms of ball flight and trajectory. For those who generate extremely high spin rates with the driver, either based on swing speed or angle of attack, the Epic Sub Zero might be a better choice, but the standard Epic will fit a wide array of golfers exceptionally well.

Jailbreak Technology

Titanium rods connecting the crown and the sole prevent a loss of energy at impact for higher ball speeds from across the clubface.

Jailbreak Technology

Exo-Cage Construction

A titanium cage surrounded by lightweight triaxial carbon enables a low, deep CG placement for high launch, low spin, and max forgiveness.

Exo-Cage Construction

Adjustable Perimeter Weighting

A 17-gram weight can be positioned in a track along the back portion of the club that gives players more shot-shaping control.

Aerodynamic Speed Step

Callaway’s proprietary Speed Step on the crown reduces drag to help players effortlessly produce more swing speed.

What They're Saying ...

“It’s the fastest driver that we’ve ever made. We had tremendous success with XR 16 but (Epic) blows that out of the water. We’ve never seen ball speeds like this.”

Dave Neville, Callaway Senior Director of Brand Management

“The track is shorter. If you’re in the current Great Big Bertha and you slam that weight all the way to the heel you’re losing about 500 MOI points So we’ve shortened the track and added a heavier weight, 17 grams as opposed to 10, and we’ve kept the MOI up and have more ball flight control.”

Dave Neville, Callaway Senior Director of Brand Management

“If you need shot shape correction, meaning left or right, the standard Epic is going to work for a lot of players. But if you’re someone who needs trajectory control, whether it’s up or down, the Sub Zero could be a great fit.”

Dave Neville, Callaway Senior Director of Brand Management

“There’s been a lot of talk that this club is going to be a game-changer for people, and having hit it, you can’t argue with that. The kind of numbers we saw in terms of increases in ball speed were really significant.”

Callaway Men's GBB Epic Drivers Aldila Rogue M*AX 65 is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 129.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10.5 degree GBB Epic driver Best driver I've owned in 35+ years of golf. Period.
Date published: 2018-09-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good driver Bought a month ago and it definitely hits longer than my old driver
Date published: 2018-08-12
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Epic Driver was extremely long and great ball flight. I have used a lot of drivers and hit the EPIC driver 10 to 15 yards further. Amazing ball flight. Great sound when hit and is not loud or a metal sound. I have the driver set for a slight draw and does exactly that. Great product, Callaway has moved into first place for golf equipment.
Date published: 2018-08-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from More distance with reasonable control I have given this new Callaway driver half a year to really 'field test' it. With clean hits, it provides greater distance and relatively good accuracy for placement than my most recent past drivers. It is nicely balanced and has great potential in the right hands. '
Date published: 2018-07-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best driver I ever used Bought this a few weeks ago. I've gained 20 plus yards per drive and much more control and accuracy. Expensive new but worth it.
Date published: 2018-06-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from More consistent and longer drives Easy to tune to my swing. Tighter dispersion of shots and easily 20 more yards with shots on the club face. I adjusted to this club faster than any other new purchase.
Date published: 2018-04-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from State of the art driver Very well balanced, light weight driver that delivers long distance and accuracy, even when you slightly mishit a ball. Probably gained 10-15 yards over my old GBB driver.
Date published: 2018-04-23
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor performance / starting to fall apart I have had my GBB Epic driver for less than 25 rounds of golf and it is already starting to deteriorate with some of the paint coming off. It is no longer than my previous driver although the fitting monitor said it increased my distance by more than 20 yards. In reality, that's a dream that won't come true for you or me.

Can someone explain the difference in the various shafts choices

Asked by: Mattmatt
All differences regarding weight, torque, and launch of each shaft are listed just below the Driver photo in the "description" section. If you're not sure which shaft to go with, we would recommend that you be fitted at a local golf shop.

I would like the Callaway GBB Epic 9 degree loft with Aldlia Rouge 70-3.3-S shaft also says 95 M5J, do not see these options above. Please give a price and method to order. Thank you

Asked by: James1951
This are closeout clubs. All we have left is what is listed on the product page. Unfortunately, the manufacture is no longer customizing this club so we are not able to order with those specs.

Why can I not get a 10.5 degree with the Aldila Max 75 X-stiff. That is all I want. Not a 9.0. 125mph swing speed but hands forward so i de-loft by about 3 degrees. Thanks,

I play a regular flex with my driver, how do I choose a shaft from the 5 options for a Calloway Epic driver?

Asked by: Gene Gene the golfmachine
If you know you play regular flex, you can select based on personal preference on this such as weight and launch. We list all that information in our shaft specs chart in the product description to help you choose.
