Two years ago Callaway's Epic and Epic Pro irons arrived on the scene, providing easy launch, forgiveness and some very impressive yardages thanks to stronger lofts.
Building on this success, the equipment giant has decided that the time is right for the replacement, and so we have the new Epic Forged model.
Despite being a game improvement iron aimed towards mid-to-high handicap golfers, Callaway is confident that the platinum chrome finish and multi-material head will be one that all golfers can feel confident using.
The Epic Forged irons are forged from 1025 carbon steel to provide pure feel and sound at impact with optimised turf interaction at impact. For the first time ever, Callaway is introducing Suspended Tungsten Core into the iron.
This is a tungsten weight positioned in a specific area so that the centre of gravity is precisely placed to provide a controlled launch. The weight is suspended by a urethane microsphere which can absorb vibration without reducing ball speeds, allowing for 360 Face Cup technology to also be in effect.
A new VFT (Variable Face Thickness) pattern has been used in the longer irons to ensure that spin and control is not lost due to the strengthened loft - often a criticism of 'juiced-up' irons like these - whilst the short irons have their weight positioned higher in the head for better flight control.
Completing the premium theme of the iron are the stock shafts, which are a steel Aerotech Steelfiber FC and graphite Mitsubishi Tensei AV Silver, along with Golf Pride Tour Velvet grip.
Scheduled for release on 9th August, the irons are priced at a whopping £1999 which reflects Callaway's belief that these are a premium product made from the finest materials and technology, and indicates their confidence that they are capable of improving your game.
The only way to find out if they're worth the money is to try them for yourself...
