Is there a limit as to how many removable weights you can put on a driver?

New design or existing model?

 

From the standpoint of the rules, no.   

If you're asking about some other aspect that might be a limiting factor, you'll have to be a bit more specific.

Basically asking for my dad. He has the original Callaway Epic and wanted to know if he could put more than one movable weight in the back slider. I told him I believe he could put 3 in there if he wanted because I don't think there is a USGA rule on the number of weights or amount of weight but I could be wrong.

In that case, it's just a matter of how many you can fit in the slot.  And after that, you can always add lead tape if the total weight still isn't high enough.

These guys are correct, stack away! The only way you could *technically* run into a "legal" issue is if the added weight pushed the MOI of the driver over the USGA limit, but in order to do that you would need to have a driver that was already pretty close, and the GBB Epic is not.
