    In that case I'll eagerly anticipate the introduction of the Callaway Slightly-Thin-and-Right

    My sub zero actually distance wise is similar to my Aeroburner TP, though a very different driver to hit. Last time I'm getting a driver without testing it first. Still gaming it though since it looks cooler LOL and easier to hit different shot shapes.



    I'm not sure I dig the look of the bottom of the club though. Hope it really doesn't replace the epics but probably will have epic 2 soon I guess.

    Thanks for the pic! I am guessing it is not long before we see staff members trying these out on the Tours.

    I still say there is close to zero percent chance these replace the Epic lineup. XR Steelhead XR16 is beginning to see markdowns this week, which would indicate a replacement model is on the way.

    The sole of this driver doesn’t look as premium, doesn’t feature sliding weights and doesn’t look to have carbon fiber “windows”. Less features would not indicate a replacement for a premium product line. Think M2 to M1. Some may fit Rogue better and there will definitely be some out on Tour, but not a dethroning of King Epic.

    Just got an email from PGATSS and the XR line is being discounted with the price ending with 98. That indicates it is being priced to clear it out for new product.

    It least here in Atlanta, the Epic is not marked down. Driver, FW, hybrids, and irons are the same price as the day they were released. Only the XR line is discounted.

    Because despite what some people are spewing in here, the Rogue looks to be replacing the XR

    Can't seem to find it now, might have been in the other thread too, but didn't someone say that they found Callaway filing for rights to the XR-18 name and Rogue is just one of the 3 version names? Rogue is basically the sub-zero version with a front/back weight, another with heel/back weights for what they're calling a draw set-up and one that might be a single weight, with no slider as the largest, most "forgiving"?



    Please, someone correct me if I'm wrong. Just trying to recount what I remember reading.

    I don't really see how it's an XR replacement when it's just an Epic with altered graphics, maybe some small tweaks to the bottom for "aerodynamics". It's not like people would go buying brand new Epics once this is released...therefore it's competing with it's own line of product. It's a Rev of the Epic, being branded under the XR name so they don't have to reduce the price of Epic by much.

    CPO doesn't count. I knew I could get one there for a while now. Also you cannot get any shaft for $330.00. I have tried and was shot down!

    You can buy "Like New" based on what they have listed. Callaway CPO does not sell new (expect for maybe some old clearance product they want get rid of). Based on my experience buying from Callaway CPO, like new would be as close to new as you can get without it being new.

    I got my, like new, Epic at CPO, not a mark on it. Currently 20% off, roughly $340.

    We have yet to hear a single word about this club from Callaway, so how do we already know “it’s just an Epic with altered graphics?” And if in your opinion this isn’t an XR replacement, then what would a club have to be like in order to be an XR replacement?

    But I cannot pick what shaft I want, and they don't have the shaft I want listed yet. I have been looking. Otherwise I would have one right now and my XR Pro 16 would be a distant memory.



    What courses do you play in the Denver metro area? I'm in Denver as well.
