Is the Callaway Epic Flash hybrid adjustable?

Yes, the Callaway Epic Flash hybrid is adjustable. The club has an OptiFit 3 hosel that allows easy adjustments of the loft. You can change the settings to vary the distance, adjust the spin and improve your shots.

The Epic Flash hybrid is a great club for low to mid handicappers because of its adjustability and forgiveness.

What is the difference between Callaway Epic Flash and Epic Flash Star hybrids?

Callaway Epic Flash Star hybrids offer the best of Epic Flash clubs plus the benefit of using a lighter model. The major differences between the Epic Flash and Epic Flash Star hybrids are given below.

Loft Options

The Star hybrid is available in loft options of 10.5°, 12° and 13.5° while the Flash supports 18°, 21°, 24° and 27° loft variants.

 

Purpose of Use

The Epic Flash has been developed to increase the distance and accuracy of the shots. On the other hand, the Epic Flash Star helps increase the swing speed.

 

Weight

Epic Flash Star weighs around 1.76 oz (or 50g) lesser than Epic Flash. The shaft, the crown and the stock grip are lighter in Epic Flash Star. However, the heads of both clubs have pretty much the same weight.

 

Loft, Lie and Face Angle Adjustment

The loft, lie and face angles can be adjusted in Epic Flash while they remain fixed in Epic Flash Star. This is due to the lightweight design of the Star hybrid.

 

Swing Weight

The movable swing weight of the Star hybrid is lighter than Epic Flash.

 

Left and Right-Handed Players

Epic Flash hybrid is available for right-handed and left-handed players in varying loft options. Epic Flash Star is available with 10.5° loft for left-handed players and 12° and 13.5° loft for right-handed players.

 

Color Scheme

Epic Flash Star has a color scheme of black and gold to differentiate it from other Epic Flash hybrid models.

 

Type of Players

Epic Flash Star has been designed for senior players and other players who have slower swing speeds. Epic Flash is for regular players who want more accuracy in their shots.

How do I adjust the loft on my Callaway Epic Flash Hybrid?

Callaway offers Epic hybrids in three variants – Epic Flash Hybrid, Epic Flash Sub Zero and Epic Flash Star. The clubs have been designed using Flash Face technology by incorporating artificial intelligence. This creates a pattern on the center of the face to increase speed to the maximum.

The Jailbreak technology uses two internal bars to connect to the crown and the sole. This helps stiffen and stabilize the club to generate more speed.

The T2C crown offers more forgiveness while the sliding weight allows you to adjust the draw or bias.

The clubs are available for men and women players.

 

Sliding Weight Adjustment on Epic Flash Hybrid and Epic Flash Sub Zero

Callaway Epic Flash and Callaway Epic Flash Sub Zero hybrids come with a sliding weight of 0.56oz (16 grams) that can be adjusted for a better shot. The Sub Zero has an additional weight port that can bring down the spin rate. This is done by moving the CG towards the face of the club.

However, I do not recommend changing this unless you are a club-fitter. I have discussed the adjustment of the sliding weight in the last section of the article.

Epic Flash Star has a fixed hosel though the sliding weight can be adjusted in the same manner.

Adjust the Loft Settings on Epic Flash Hybrid and Epic Flash Sub Zero

Epic Flash Hybrid and Epic Flash Sub Zero hybrids allow you to adjust the loft and lie angle settings. The markings on the hosel are vital to adjusting the loft and lie settings. The default loft position is S.

The Epic Flash Hybrid is one of the best forgiving models in the market. The adjustable hosel allows you to change the loft and lie angles to improvise your shots.

Players looking for more adjustability, distance, flight, accuracy, and forgiveness should opt for Epic Flash Hybrid models. Let’s look at the hosel adjustments of this driver in this section.

  1. Use the wrench provided by Callaway to turn the screw in the anti-clockwise direction and remove the head from the club shaft. Don’t use any wrench other than the one provided by the manufacturer as this can result in the screw heads getting damaged.

Once you remove the head, you’ll see that the two cogs/rings can be turned independently.

  1. Set different positions by turning the rings. Depending on which cog you use for loft, the other cog should be used for lie angle.

You can add up to 2° to the standard loft setting and subtract 1° degree from the standard loft setting. You can change the lie settings between neutral (N) and draw (D). The neutral setting allows you to hit the ball straight. The draw setting minimizes slicing and corrects the shot.

  • Set to +1 to hit a bit higher and increase the spin.
  • Set to +2 to get more flight and maximum spin.
  • Set to -1 to decrease the flight and spin.
  1. Replace the head aligning the white dash on the clubhead with the line on the hosel and the selected cog settings.
  2. Turn the wrench in the clockwise direction to tighten the clubhead screw until you hear a click sound. Avoid turning further as this can damage the club shaft.

Callaway Epic Flash weight adjustment settings

Callaway factory setting keeps the weight in a neutral position at the center of the track/rail. The club is stable and most forgiving when the weight is in the neutral position. The sliding weight in Epic Flash and Epic Flash Sub Zero clubs can be adjusted as follows:

  1. Turn the Callaway wrench in the anticlockwise direction to loosen the sliding screw weight and move it from its default position. Gradual changes help you assess your shots better.
  2. Set the weight at the required position by sliding it across the rail.
  • Slide the weight towards the heel to increase the draw or correct a slice.
  • Slide the weight towards the toe to create a fade or correct a hook.
  1. Use the wrench to lock the screw by turning it in the clockwise direction.
  2. Stop turning when you hear the click sound. Don’t over tighten the screw.
