Callaway go bigger but lighter with a focus on forgiveness and tighter dispersion writes equipment editor James Savage
Review: Callaway Rogue driver
Our Callaway Rogue driver review took place at the brand’s launch event at Archerfield where we tested the driver in the performance centre then out on the Dirleton course.
We have also tested the Callaway Rogue driver out at Leeds Golf Centre, Hillsborough Golf Club and the Pete Cowen Golf Academy in Rotherham.
Callaway Rogue Driver review – First impressions
Callaway Rogue Driver
The Callaway Rogue driver follows the Epic which has been one of the most successful drivers in Callaway’s history.
The Epic was the number one driver for sales across Europe in 2017 with a really strong performance across the board.
So the Callaway Rogue driver was always going to be up against it if it was going to improve on the Epic.
So what’s new with the Callaway Rogue driver? For starters, we have a new colour scheme which I’m told is ‘teal’.
My first impression was that it looked like a ladies range and the name Rogue to me makes me think of the character from the X-men comics who is a woman.
The next thing to notice is that we no longer have a sliding weight and we have three models instead of the two which we had with the Epic.
So we have a standard Callaway Rogue driver, a Sub Zero model and a heel-weighted Draw model.
One key difference I immediately about the Callway Rogue driver was the fact it looks bigger and more confidence-inspiring at address than the Epic.
Overall, these drivers look fantastic with their carbon crowns and stylish sole designs.
