Rogue Irons: What You Need to Know

By January 18, 2018Headlines, Product News

Just days after launching our new Rogue Drivers and Fairway Woods, we’re back at it again with the introduction of our groundbreaking new Rogue Irons.

Here’s what you need to know about the newest iron family from Callaway.

More Ball Speed 

Our 360 Face Cup technology has helped us become the #1 Iron Brand in Golf by giving golfers a lot more ball speed. And in Rogue Irons, we’ve combined the Face Cup with Variable Face Thickness (VFT) technology to expand the portion of the face that delivers fast ball speed.

Here’s how it works: Face Cup employs a shallow, flexible rim around the perimeter of the face that flexes and releases at impact to increase ball speed. VFT also influences how the face itself flexes to promote more ball speed on off-center hits. The combination of these two technologies promotes ball speed and distance.

Optimal Flight and Control

With a premium multi-material construction, we have the ability to do a lot of cool things with these irons. Our Tungsten-infused Internal Standing Wave Tungsten Weighting allows us to position the CG in each of the long irons with extraordinary precision for optimum launch and control.

The tungsten is twice as heavy as steel, and concentrates significant weight into a small space in the form of an intricately shaped part, which is a key to precisely controlling CG location.

Great Feel With Urethane Microspheres 

The beauty of having of a thin club face is that you can achieve faster ball speed and more distance. But the downside is excessive vibration can generate an unpleasant sound and feel.

Urethane can be used to dampen vibration to improve sound and feel, but it can also greatly reduce the face’s ability to flex, lowering COR and ball speed. Our elastic-urethane microspheres provide the sound and feel benefits of urethane without compromising COR or ball speed. To have tremendous ball speed and feel together is a huge achievement.

Did We Mention There’s A Rogue, Rogue X, and Rogue Pro?

Yep, three different offerings. They all include the incredible combination of 360 Face Cup with VFT, multi-matieral construction, and urethane microspheres for great feel. Here’s the breakdown on each:

Rogue Irons: Long, accurate, easy to hit, and versatile, with great sound and feel. Suited for average players seeking balanced performance.

Rogue Pro Irons: Caters to better players with a compact head, thin topline, thin sole, shallow cavity and minimal offset, to increase workability, trajectory control and impact feedback.

Rogue X Irons: A radical distance package. They’re lighter in weight and longer in length, with stronger lofts. The wide sole pulls the CG low and deep for easy, high launch and long carry. Add 360 Face Cup and VFT for more average ball speed and you have an iron fully armed to max out distance.

Final Thoughts

By pushing ourselves to reach unprecedented performance levels, we’ve created the best combination of distance, accuracy and playability ever in Rogue. And Rogue X delivers a total distance overhaul.
