So I tried out the Epic/M2/Cobra Black LTD, also warmed up hitting a fair few with the Ryoma (which I love and isn't going anywhere, I was getting good distance, around 283 average and relatively low launch which is nice)

I tried a variety of project X and Hazardous S and XS, they didn't have any of the more exotic shafts. I also left everything on neutral on all the clubs as I'm not a fan of messing around, it's my fault not the club!

With all 4 drivers there wasn't much in it for distance, between 275-290, spin was higher on the Epic over both the others, looks wise the M2 looks bloody massive!! The Epic looks rather nice, and the Cobra is nice and understated.
Feel wise the Epic feels very dull off the face as does the M2, I was slightly underwhelmed with both if I'm honest, the Cobra was much more like the Ryoma and you can feel the ball launch off the face.

Overall it was very close between the Epic and the M2, but a clear winner for me in both feel, distance and dispersion was the Cobra.... Also I was offered a whopping 220 trade in for my Scotty so of course I bought one!! Helps that it was also 80 cheaper than both the others and in my mind clearly the best club of the 3 for me.

It will be interesting to see how they both play on course, I hit 2 or 3 balls 290 dead straight with the Cobra bearing in mind that's with a range ball and its -1 Celsius here today!

I went for the Project X Hzrdus Black for the shaft, seemed to perform very very similarly to the Project X 6.5LZ Prototype in the Ryoma.

It's crazy isn't it! The guy was saying that a lot of companies are especially annoyed as they just want to dominate the market by offering such high trade in prices.

He gave me 133 for the 3 wood!

Indeed, now I need to decide which driver to take to the US!

I've just been reading some reviews on the the Cobra and it seems very well received, I highly recommend having some time with it before going straight for the Epic.

Unfortunately I've purchased both Epic SZ Driver and 3 wood!!

Nothing unfortunate about that, it just wasn't for me even though I got some good numbers with it.

Indeed I did, they are doing double the value on all trade ins currently. Thanks for the recommend on the Cobra, doubt I would have tried/considered it otherwise!
