They're all over this jailbreak caper!

The GBB Epic Sub Zero is the first driver of its kind and represents a true paradigm shift: a powerful, low-spinning Tour-level driver that’s also very forgiving. In fact, Epic Sub Zero is the most forgiving pro-style driver we’ve ever made.
Epic Sub Zero’s power is based on our innovative new Jailbreak Technology, which changes the fundamental way the head and clubface behave at impact to deliver more ball speed and distance. The key structural components of a metalwood – crown, sole and face – each bend, flex and rebound at impact.
Because they’re connected, they influence each other’s dynamics. Jailbreak Technology creates a remarkably efficient relationship between these components to promote more ball speed across a much larger area of the face.
“Tour drivers typically emphasise the performance better players want most – speed, low spin and control – at the expense of forgiveness,” said Dr. Alan Hocknell, Callaway’s senior vice president of R&D. “GBB Epic Sub Zero’s combination of Tour performance and forgiveness make it a breakthrough in driver engineering.”
Epic Sub Zero’s power is based on Callaway’s innovative new Jailbreak Technology, which fundamentally changes how the head and clubface behave at impact to deliver more ball speed and distance. At impact, a metalwood’s face flexes and the crown bulges upward while the sole bulges downward. Jailbreak bars form a firm connection between the crown and sole to inhibit their flexing. That puts more of the load of impact on the face. Physicists call this “energy lensing.” In Epic, it promotes faster ball speed for more distance.
