Epon AF 701 (vs. 702 vs. 703)?
« on: June 09, 2018, 06:47:38 AM »
Still tinkering with a forgiving bag set-up and thinking about Epon 7-series.
The 705 certainly looks very nice but don't want to spend that much.
From the older versions I prefer the 701 on looks - the 702 is OK - the 703 is not that appealing to me.
But that said how about performance? Is there a big difference in forgivness/feel?
Also the 701 and 702 look somewhat smaller at address.

703 is one of the all time best performing irons ever made IMO...best of the Bach IMO...did not like the 701 or 702.  703/705 are a cut above in every way...

Get the 705 if the shaft fits you.  That's a real good set.  As someone who's hit all of the it's the 703 or 705 hands down.  705 is crisper, more electric...stronger launch...703 is a bit softer, more forgiving all around.  They are similar in distence.

Thank you for the offer and the price considering it is 705 is really OK (so everyone reading this -> click the sell section it is a great offer) the problem is steelfiber shaft. I tried it once and it was not for me.

Also my budget is rather tight (it is a secondary set) hence why I'm also looking for 701...
