The Callaway Rogue Driver Review

Pro

  • Perfect for average golfer
  • Adjustable Loft and Lie
  • Extremely Forgiving driver
  • Add more distance than Callaway Epic driver

Con

  • Single Weight CG limit MOI Adjustability

5 Great feature of Callaway Rogue Driver:

  1.  Jailbreak Technology –it helps to promote faster ball speed from a large area of the club face. Jailbreak technology features two internal bars which stiffen the body by joining the crown and sole. The stiffer body allows improved energy transfer to the face which, in turn, transfers more energy to the ball and provides exceptional distance. It increased both forgiveness and distance.
  2.  X Face Technology – designed with a variable face thickness selectively thinned out in different areas. The thinner face flexes more on impact, and in turn, creates more ball speed and added distance.
  3.  Triaxial Carbon Crown comes in at sixty-five percent lighter than titanium – the new Rogue drivers have the largest, thinnest, and lightest crown of any Callaway driver to date. This allowed designers to push weight to the outer edges of the club and significantly increase the M.O.I. (resistance to twisting)
  4.  Boeing Aero Package –improves airflow and promotes a faster swing speed.
  5.  Premium Shafts –such as Aldila Quaranta, Aldila Synergy, Project X HZRDS Yellow, and Project X EvenFlow, just to name a few. Shafts come in various weights from forty to seventy grams, in ten-gram increments.

Additional Feature of Callaway rouge sub zero driver:

Center of Gravity Weighting System – Two interchangeable weights of two and fourteen grams, located in the sole’s front and rear, let users adjust spin-rates up to plus or minus 300 rpm. Placing the heavier weight forward helps to lower spin and launch angle. Positioning the heavier weight in the rear port increases spin, launch angle, MOI, and forgiveness.

  • Excellent Slice Correction
  • Extremely Forgiving
  • Exceptionally Long off the Tee
  • Low Spin and Trajectory cut through the wind
  • Adjustable Loft and Lie

Con

  • Too Much Draw for Non-Slicers

Dedicated Center of Gravity Weight – The Rogue Draw Driver places a significant amount of weight in the heel. It manages this, however, without using a closed face, an exaggerated lie angle, or an offset hosel.

The Players Review of the Rogue Driver

Looks

The design of Rouge is noticeably longer from front to back than the Epic driver, and that’s a key to forgiveness. with fairly tall face on Rouge driver will give you a big confidence booster at address.

The Rogue shares the gloss black/carbon fiber head with the Epic, which is a great look.  The blue color of Rogue line is unique and eye-catching, and it’s used perfectly throughout the club.

One impressive note regarding the Rogue Draw Driver – it looked the same as the standard model with no significant offset or angled hosel found on many draw clubs.

All three versions of rouge inspire confidence on the tee.

Feel

All three versions of the Rogue Driver felt and sounded solid on impact, possibly even a little better than Callaway’s Epic Driver.the Rogue is so stable Even with the large head, all felt light and easy to swing.

Performance

The standard Rogue Driver produced some impressive ball speed and carry distance with the loft set at ten degrees, although launch angles seemed a touch high on some shots.

The Sub Zero Driver, also set at ten degrees, with the 14g weight in the back, and the 2g in the front lowered spin slightly and improved carry over the standard model. With the weights reversed, spin went down and carry improved, yet again.

The draw driver model worked as advertised adding about twenty degrees of draw to most shots.

All three versions of the Rouge seemed to correct slight to moderate mishits on every part of the face.

Overall, all three versions played long, straight, and were fun to hit.

Callaway Rogue Vs Epic Driver?

Does the Callaway Rogue driver improve on the Epic? Yes, it does. Should I upgrade to rogue? No it doesn’t.

Callaway success to make a breakthrough with new Rough, but I still don’t think you needs to upgrade your Epic driver. Unless you can get a superb trade-in deal.

Again you no need to upgrade to Rouge driver but it certainly could make you just a little bit jealous.

Callaway Rogue Vs other drivers?

All major club makers have introduced new technologies and most of them focus on forgiveness.

TaylorMade, launched M3 and M4 with “Twist Face” technology. Cobra also employs a similar non-standard shaped face with King F8 and F8 . Both manufacturers claim their reshaped face club will give more forgiveness.

Like the Callaway, the TaylorMade M3and M4, Cobra King F8 and F8+ Driver, the Titleist 917D2 and 917D3, and Mizuno ST180 drivers all offer lie and loft adjustable shafts.

Callaway Rogue line offer same thing to you, the extreme forgiving driver with adjustable shaft. The choice is yours

Which Rogue works Best for Me?

Majority golfer will likely find the Rouge Driver best suits their game. The longer front-to-back profile promotes confidence at address, while the adjustable shaft provides enough flexibility for players to tweak the club if their swing changes.

Rouge Sub Zero Driver is design Just like the Epic Sub Zero Driver for tournament players and professional golfers.

Rogue Draw Driver will be perfect for golfer who want to cure a slice that they haven’t been able to fix on their own.

Bottom Line

Callaway has done a great job with their Rogue drivers.  The technology underlying each of them is rock solid, and each one targets a different kind of player.

The Callaway Rogue Driver does what it set out to do and that was to be a bit more forgiving and confidence-inspiring.

And with the three options of driver, it should be very easy to find the one that works best for you.
