Purely for club fitting, what has been your experience between these two clubs (standard OG epic vs standard flash) when it comes to club fitting?

I was fit for my epic and like it but it's showing some signs of damage so might have to buy a flash head, but would prefer if I didn't have to change shafts for a proper fit (dents out on the toe, carbon fiber exposed on bottom of club, face beat up).

9* epic, SS just above 110, ad tp 7x shaft, usually play neutral upright (-1/n) but have switched to +1/n in the winter for a higher ball flight (no roll so want to maximize carry)

Thanks!

    Use the same shaft all day long. People who say you need a new shaft to match up with a new head are just trying to get you to buy more stuff. If you have any doubt, just look on tour. PGA guys usually are contractually obligated to switch out to the newest model driver on each cycle, but look how many of them change shafts with it. Almost none. Stick with what works.

    Same shaft, Flash launched higher & spun a LOT more for me. I play driver at 44.5"; same swingweight, the Flash at 9.5 (10.5 down a degree) launched at 13* but spun 3600 for me. The OG at 11.5 (10.5 up a degree) launches at 15* but 2500 RPMs. The OG had a small edge in ball speed too. I just COULD NOT get the spin down on the Flash.
    Don't know if I borked the Flash head by having it built 1" short, or what, but that thing was not a good fit for me. Maybe go even further down in loft, or try a Subzero? Eh, I'll just stay with my current one.
    I wouldn't buy one without hitting it first. It certainly performed for me like a VERY different head.

    If your Epic is damaged from use then wouldn’t callaway warrant it under consumer laws?

    If epic is cracked they will replace with a Rogue - FYI.
