New AF502 Forged Iron Released!
On the 15th of November Epon Golf released their new AF-302 & 502 iron sets. In this post we will be going over what makes the new 502 so special and innovative. For those of you who are not familiar with the Epon brand it's actually a golf equipment brand that has been around for decades in Japan. Their parent company Endo manufacturing is undisputedly the highest quality manufacture of golf clubs in the world located in Niigata Japan.
The 502 irons are precision forged of soft S20C Japanese steel and carry the desired hardness rating of HRB80 which means its uber soft and rewarding at impact. Eventually Epon plans to phase out the 501 model for this new 502. The 502 has a face made of a high COR super spring steel material that provides loads of rebound giving maxium distance like their 701 model irons. Epon also implemented a new Alpha Gel into the 502's hollow body which makes each loft feel much softer at impact.
If your intrigued by its design and style you may be asking what type of player it fits, its design is suitable for a wide range of golfer but specifically its for the player who wants minimal offset, a thin topline, forgiveness, and very long yet controlable distance. You can move down to the 302 iron if you want something smaller and more compact or you can move up to the 701 if you desire semi game improvement design to aid your play. Whatever the case rest assured that when you purchase Epon product you are buying the best quality that Japan and the world has to offer.
Epon is not cheap, due to it's J.I.S grade materials, original concept design and cutting edge technology used be prepared to pay the big bucks to park these in your bag.
