I've seen a photo of this show up on TSG's Facebook page, but so far nothing more detailed? Is that a forged cup face? What ti material is used? Etc etc, when is more info coming

SP700 is the face material.  This club is also limited edition for shop sales I am told.  TSG will be able to get some.  

The premise around this thing is feel.  It feels and sounds much better.  

There is a natural draw bias to the head and that can be tuned down with a lighter weight in the heel

Callaway needs to ditch the arrow and the face graphics IMO.

+1  and unfortunately this is what sells now days.  I was talking with some random gear enthusiasts at a golf shop younger gentlemen and all wanted red taylormade putters.

On the GBB EPIC FORGED ...

What lofts are available? 9? 9.5? 10? 10.5? 11?

Is it Japan only or is this a US launch too?

On the sole of the club, are there THREE moveable weights (heel, neutral, toe) or TWO moveable weights (heel, neutral)?

Thank you for the information!

Please excuse, from my previous post, my first and third question.

I just got the information from the USGA Conforming List. 

9.5° & 10.5° with 2 Moveable Weights

 

BUT .... Anymore info on whether or not it's Japan only? Or both Japan and US?

 

THANK YOU!

The weights are just screw in type weights and not movable like the normal Epic.

From what I have read,  these are a Japan only release because Japanese users are more particular about sound and feel.  

This is why they chose to use all Titanium including the crown. 

Also, hosel is not adjustable.

Poor choice of word on my part. You are correct, they don't move, but can be swapped/fined tuned.

I'm beginning to get excited about the Epic Forged. I'm getting everything I could ask for. The only thing the Epic Forged doesn't offer is my desire for a sub 400cc head.

I agree. It does look way better. Still ugly though. Not only the graphics - horrid - but also the shape. I don't get it.

Today I gripped my old Epon 460zr and concluded that for a 460cc driver it is close to perfection.

Read a review of this driver on the " Golf Club Shidanikki "     He says the feel is waaay better than the standard Epic Star and Sub Zero models sold in Japan.   He also mentions that the distance performance is similar to the other two.   I am thinking that the forged head has a bit more spin because its not as low CG due to the TI Crown being slightly heavier than Carbon?
