I'm not doubting him or his swing claims but what he did was what you just said; categorized a whole driver line to say anyone above a certain swing speed won't see benefits or ball speed increases compared to other brands which clearly isn't true.
Maybe the Rogue doesn't fit his swing but to say the G400 LST or m3 would be better for faster swingers to obtain higher ball speeds is completely unfounded.
I personally don't use a rogue or epic but I know a few 120+ swingers who do and see insane speeds just like they do with a G400 or TM product. All I am saying is yes most of all the big makers make drivers that are extremely even across the board. It's just about finding the right shaft and headshape for you.
They certainly don't see their rogue numbers 10mph less than when they hit other brands.
+1. Guys with high swingspeeds are crushing the Rogue. And what I would say is check the monitor because the one you are on has you swinging the club faster than Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson, Rory Mcilroy, Tony Finau, Johnny Vegas, etc., all of whom average 120-124 with the occasional swing at 125-127. But they are generally in the low 120s.
These big drops in ballspeed. Are you hitting the Rogue in the middle of the face at 128 and youíre seeing a huge drop? PGA Tour pros cannot swing it that fast AND center it with any consistency.
If the Rogue was 10 mph less than competitors, that news would travel like wildfire. It has to be anecdotal or the LM is jacked or the contact is moving around the face. If you were hitting off center, a 10 mph drop would be possible and likely. But in the middle with a 10 mph drop? Doesnít seem even possible given the quality of the club.
