Last year’s Callaway GBB Epic driver dazzled the market. Its revolutionary Jailbreak technology lead to more ball speed, distance, and forgiveness. For 2018’s Rogue series, Callaway engineers found a way to add this amazing technology to fairway woods and hybrids. Jailbreak isn’t the only new technology in the Rogue fairway woods and hybrids. Here’s what you need to know:
Rogue Fairway Woods and Hybrids
Rogue Fairway Woods
The Rogue fairway woods use stainless steel for their Jailbreak Bars as opposed to the Titanium of the drivers. Using steel stiffens the body and places more load on the face at impact. This delivers (you guessed it) more ball speed and distance.
Combining Jailbreak with an ultra-thin Carpenter 455 steel face and Callaway’s Face Cup technology spreads this increased speed and distance to shots hit outside of the center of the club face.
Finally, an Internal Standing Wave Technology sits low, behind the face. It moves the CG low and forward, delivering distance-enhancing high launch and low spin.
To finish things off, Callaway refines the size, shape, and position of their Boeing-influenced Speed Step. Air flows better over the top of the club, helping it move faster. Talk about the ultimate distance and forgiveness fairway wood!
The Rogue fairway woods come in 2 models, the Standard and Sub Zero model. The Sub Zero has weight pushed forward, toward the face, for lower spin and launch.
Like the fairway woods, the Rogue hybrids feature Jailbreak technology for the first time. Callaway also continues to use their Hyper Speed Cup Face and Internal Standing wave in the Rogue hybrid. The 3 technologies produce high-launching shots that seem to travel forever.
New to the Rogue hybrid line is the Rogue X. This version has all the technology as the standard model, but in a lighter, stronger-lofted package with a bigger head. Slower swingers looking for maximum distance and forgiveness will gravitate to this model.
Rogue Fairway Woods and Hybrids: Go Long
With all of the excitement over these clubs, I will not be surprised to see golfers everywhere “Going Rogue” in 2018.
