Callaway Epic Max Vs Callaway Epic Max LS Drivers Comparison Overview

Callaway Epic Max Vs Callaway Epic Max LS Drivers

The reason why golf club manufacturers release multiple versions of the same model is that one size hardly ever fits all when it comes to golf gear.

Some players need max forgiveness while others need max workability.

The problem is that different versions within the same model are often very similar.

It can be hard to tell which one is best for your game. But in the following comparison overview, I will help you decide which of these two enormously popular drivers may work for you.

Callaway Epic Max Driver Overview

“Both the Callaway Epic Max and Epic Max LS feature a triaxial carbon crown, jailbreak speed frame and a moveable rear weight.”

The differences are really in weighting and performance figures. The Callaway Epic Max driver has internal draw bias.

But if you need to balance out the flight, the rear sliding weight will yield a variety of shot shapes.

For my swing speed and tempo, the Callaway Epic Max wasn’t playing as long as the Callaway Epic Max LS.

In fact I lost about 15 yards of carry with the Callaway Epic Max compared to the LS.

The Callaway Epic Max also launched 3° higher than the LS. Another glaring difference was spin. The Callaway Epic Max produced about 4,000 additional RPMs over the LS.

But the Callaway Epic Max has a generous sweet spot, a face that plays hot and a confidence-inspiring 460cc head volume.

Callaway Epic Max LS Drivers

“The Callaway Epic Max LS is just as forgiving as the standard Epic Max but it suited my swing speed and tempo a lot better.”

I have a 90+ MPH swing speed and semi-aggressive tempo so I need a driver that launches low and preferably one that spins low as well.

The Callaway Epic Max LS is both. Spin rates were staying in the 2000 RPM range and my launch angle was a near-perfect 10°. The Callaway Epic Max LS is also very stable on mis-hits.

The neutral slight weighting also meant that I could leave the sliding weight in the neutral position and get a straight shot.

“The Callaway Epic Max is definitely more for players in the 75-85 MPH swing speed range and for players who have trouble hitting a draw.

The Callaway Epic Max LS is better for fast-tempo players and likely, mid to low handicappers.”

Epic Max Driver – First Impressions

Right away, we could see that the Callaway Epic Max driver was big and bad. We couldn’t wait to get it out to the range and see what it was capable of.

This driver is built with A.I to optimize the placement of the weighting for high launching straighter shots but you can also adjust the weighting with a simple slider.

The Jailbreak bars add stability while the 360 flash cup face offers an incredible ball speed on impact.

The Callaway Epic Max did not disappoint in any category. Not only does it play further than most drivers; it also offers an increased level of forgiveness and consistency.

The Epic Max features a 16g sliding weight that allows you to control ball flight.

The Epic Family

The Epic Speed is the only driver in the family to lack a sliding weight.

The Epic Max LS has a 13g sliding weight and is more compact than the Epic Max. It also produces less spin for ultimate forgiveness and fairway finding for those with less consistent strokes.

Callaway Epic Max – Who Is It For?

This driver would be a solid choice for any high, mid or low handicapper in need of distance and forgiveness.

The Epic Max driver inherently produces straight shots so that will help beginners as well. However, the sliding weight does open things up a bit in terms of ball flight.

We like that the head and sole are oversized as well. This will be a comforting site for beginners at point of address.

Epic Driver Family

The Epic Speed is for high speed swingers looking for maximum distance while giving up some forgiveness.
