Callaway Rogue and Rogue Sub Zero drivers hit USGA conforming list



As of Monday, Dec. 4, two new drivers from Callaway appear on the USGA conforming list: a Callaway Rogue and a Callaway Rogue Sub Zero, each in 9- and 10.5-degree heads. Based on the photos, the drivers will use weights in the sole, have adjustable hosels, and will feature Callaway’s popular Jailbreak technology that it introduced in its GBB Epic drivers. The Jailbreak design essentially uses two internal bars behind the face to reduce flex and ultimately boost ball speed.

Photos of a Callaway Rogue Sub Zero driver, which look similar to the photos posted on USGA’s conforming list, also recently popped up in our forums,. Check out the “Epic is out, enter the Rogue” forum thread, and the “New Callaway Driver/Woods: Rogue” thread to see what GolfWRX members are saying about the photos of the driver.

Below are the photos of the drivers as they appear on the USGA site, along with the listed specs and descriptions.

    I say let the manufacturers do whatever the want; it’s their money they are spending not mine. We don’t have to upgrade every time they introduce another version or product. The upside is since they come out with new stuff every 3-6 months, we can buy the newly replaced stuff, which is usually just as good if not better than the new stuff, at reduced prices. Plus I do like tinkering and experimenting with new stuff, and even though I have gone through several irons over past several years (and currently play Srixon 945s), I have not found a driver to replace my 8-year old Titleist 910 D2 with a Mitsubishi Diamana Silver S60 shaft. So bring ’em on, Taylormade and Callaway!

    I am currently hitting the Callaway Fusion Heavy. I tried the Epic with a 44.5″ shaft, but if you don’t hit the face square, who knows where the ball will travel. Hitting outside the rods on the heal or toe will cause the ball to squirrel. If the Rogue has added the missing forgiveness, I’d go with it, otherwise I’ll stay with the Fusion.

    Yea, yea, something new every year that will get another 7-10 yards. Think we’re stupid Callaway ? Sick of all the marketing BS and insulting every past driver after we spent $400-$500.

    I’m not sure I get the title of the article as “Callaway drivers hit USGA conforming list”. Aren’t all or most Callaway drivers conforming??

    I can’t see any adjustment on these new drivers for the hook/fade bar. As as hooker, I like to set up my driver for maximum fade without adding draw bias with increased loft. Can’t see any reason to go spend additional money for a club that will not offset my tendency.

    1 year is plenty of time for a good design and engineering team to devlope a new product. I’m alll for it. If your only hobby is golf, the price of a new driver is relatively cheap.

      From and engineering pov this is all ostentatious rubbish intended to scam the gullible golfers who seek a new toy to boost their pathetic game …. soooo obvious

        I wouldn’t say rubish. Most of the new drivers are very good. Will they make a golfer with a below average swing start hitting great drives? Uh…. no. But the quest for “Excalibur ” gives golfers a mission which some golfers seem to love. I myself like to demo the new crop of drivers every year, but seldom see the drivers live up to the hype. Drivers in my bag are on self regulated 2 year contract and irons are on a 5 year. Putters on the other hand come and go. My weakness.

    Just looking at the design of the Rogue soles it’s evident these drivers are top notch.

      Great design indeed, wonder if they also have a milled face?

    For those who get annoyed at the “constant” club releases, understand, this is typical capitalism. The marketing departments and shareholders demand new products on a regular basis. It’s been a long time since “consumer demand” or “improvement” drove new product launches – in golf or almost any other area of manufacture.

    If you want to change this, vote for socialism.

    Have Callaway not learned a thing from the demise of TMAG? They just put out too many clubs that look the same, sound the same, and perform the same, while pricing them a bit more than the last model. Enough.

      Why do we care? Do you get mad when BMW launches a new 3 series or 5 series every year. Or Chevy pumps out annual upgrades to the Malibu or Corvette.

      They run 2 year product cycles, same as smartphones and longer than computers or cars or pretty much anyother good we purchase.

      • Doesnotno

        But BMW/Chevy put out models with quantifiable improvements – faster, smoother, more economical, etc. Smartphones and computers have more memory, better screens, faster processors. Callaway and TMAG can’t prove similar improvements. They’re simply offending people who purchased the earlier models. In the short term they think they’re improving profits, in the long term they’re educating people that there’s no need to change driver until the current model breaks.

          not true. newer models arent always better and sometimes have lots of recalls.

            i have done ALOT of testing with all models and i think they are are big upgrade for epic.
            I dont game callaway clubs but as a club fitter i get to test everything.
            The original epic to me was strange…. it was hard to tell where on the face you hit the ball and hard to find the COG.
            The rouge line has much more “FEEL” which is the main thing epic is lacking…
            the fairway woods were much much better.
            As for the Iron line… pretty sure the rogue X iron had a 41* PW (im not exaggerating)
            Performance wise i didnt see much change and doubt you will see much more in the next 2-3 models..
            Taylormades M3 and M4 are going to be something we haven’t seen in the golf industry before….. Actual NEW stuff….
            Anyone have any Question ill do my best to answer.

              Is there a way to adjust the fade / draw bias?

        2 year product cycle? What planet are you from? Callaway and Tmag are ridiculous with There product cycles…

      Let the market decide. Your opinion makes you sound like an economic illiterate.

Titleist confirms yellow Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls for 2019



Back in April, when Titleist launched its new AVX golf balls in both white and optic yellow, Michael Mahoney, the Vice President of Golf Ball Marketing for Titleist, spoke on the possibility of yellow Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls on GolfWRX’s Two Guys Talking Golf podcast: “Our process is so focused on golfer feedback… if the demand for a yellow Pro V1 or Pro V1x were large enough…we would like to deliver on it.”

Well, it appears that golfer demand was high enough and Titleist is delivering on it, because on Monday, a company representative confirmed that yellow Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls are coming in 2019.

Rumors were recently swirling about the possibility of yellow Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls, and Team Titleist Manager Mike D. confirmed them in a post on Team Titleist’s discussion thread.

In the post, Mike D. writes…

“Now, you may have heard some of the rumors out there that this was the year that we would finally introduce a yellow Pro V1, Well, I’m here to let Team Titleist know that the rumors aren’t rumors at all. That’s right, after speaking with our product team I am able to confirm that we will be launching (sorry, I couldn’t avoid the pun) yellow Pro V1 and Pro V1x golf balls in 2019.”

Apparently, posts within the Team Titleist community played a large role in making that happen.

“In fact, Team Titleist played a pretty big role in making this happen. We read and shared all of the posts from the community asking for us to make a yellow Pro V1 and our R&D team went to work.

They spent countless hours on figuring out how we could develop the best possible bright colored cover formulation. They went through numerous trials to get everything just right.”

So, do we have confirmation on when exactly the yellow golf balls will hit the market? Not just yet…

“While we can’t share any more details than this update, we did want to make sure we confirmed this exciting news to all of you as soon as possible.

So stay tuned for more updates and details later in the year.”
