Published

on

The Fujikura Tour Rep just tweeted photos of the new Callaway Driving iron.

Golfwrx shot photos of this club back at the Las Vegas Open (last year?) when it was really raw & Ernie Els was testing it. Looks like it made the grade.

    If you are talking about your iron swing speed being 90, you should hit your 3 iron 240+. But to answer your question using your number, a 90mph swing transfers to about 105 with the driving iron. A driving iron with 24* loft will go 250-270 depending on steepness of your swing.

    I have club head speed in the mid 90″s but have always hit my 3 iron further than my three wood. How does the driving iron compare in distance for the pros vs. a driver? If I hit my three iron 220 – 225, how far would you anticipate that I would hit a driving iron

      Hey Dave, I hit my forged 4 iron 230 carry. I am hitting my callaway proto 24 degree 248 carry. I have a driver club head speed of 118 and 92 for my irons. Hope this helps you. I love the club and glad I bought it as I can only hit irons well and fairway woods.

Spotted: New Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft

Published

on

The official Tour launch of the Aldila Rogue Silver 130 MSI shaft is this week at the 2018 Forth Worth Invitational at Colonial, and we were able to snap a few photos on the range. MSI stands for millions of pounds per square inch, and basically, it refers to how stiff the fiber is — the higher the number, the greater stiffness it has.

Headed to retail later this summer, according to Aldila, the lower-launching, lower-spinning Rogue Silver 130 MSI is the successor to the Rogue Silver 125 MSI.

Per the company, the new Rogue Silver 130 MSI will feature the same tapered butt-counter-balanced design as the 125. The stronger 130 MSI carbon fiber produces slightly lower torque, however, and is the strongest material in a Rogue shaft to date.

Several Tour pros have already made the switch to the new shaft:

  • Jimmy Walker put the 70 TX in his driver for the first time at The Players. He had been gaming the 80 TX in his fairway wood since the Masters.
  • Kevin Chappell has been playing the 80 TX in both his 3 and 5-woods.
  • Martin Flores has put the 70 TX in his driver
  • Chez Reavie put the 60 TX in his driver at the Masters.

We’ll bring you more details as they become available closer to launch. Click here to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the new shaft in our forums.
