Dare I say that I prefer the feel of Yamaha drivers (at least the old ones before the RMX branding) over the ones from Epon?
Hopefully I won't get killed.  ???

Never had the 202, but always thought the 203 was a larger more forgiving version of the Epon Zero.  Sweet spot feel is the same to me between the two clubs, but off center goes to the Yam.  Distance on the sweet sport, I think the Zero wins but like feel the off center contact is the Yam by a mile...

That said I prefer my golf clubs to be like my wife, small and demanding.  So it is Epon Zero for me...

Epon 103 is the best looking and feeling driver. However, Jbeam are longer but sadly not up to the Epin 103 in terms of looks and outright length.

For me, it's about a Total combo
Yes you need feel but  the driver needs to perform... And Epon are lacking in Distance

Played the V202 Tour with Kai'li 70S some the past couple weeks. As far as I'm concerned this combo is the benchmark for impact feel and ball flight. Very flat flight and great distance.
