Callaway Rogue Irons Review

The latest Callaway Rogue Irons retail from $899.99 (MSRP) and they were created to offer the perfect combo of accuracy, distance and playability you've ever experienced in a Callaway iron. These babies come fully loaded with Callaway's latest and greatest technologies, including their patented 360 Face Cup and VFT, Urethane Microspheres and a multi-material construction. The new Callaway Rogue Irons combine the company's famous VFT technology (variable face thickness) with the 360 Face Cup technology to enlarge the surface of the face that provides fast ball speeds. The Face Cup technology uses a flexible/shallow rim around the perimeter of the face, which allows it to flex at impact for increasing ball speed. The variable face thickness technology also plays a part in how the face flaxes, to improve ball speeds on off-center hits.

These 2 technologies combined promote ball speed and distance. You can fine-tune your Callaway Rogue Irons thanks to their Tungsten Weighting feature, that allows you to perfectly position the center of gravity (CG) with pin-point precision, thus promoting optimal launch and control at each individual loft. The advantage of having an ultra thin clubface is increased ball speed, yet there's a downside to this: an unpleasant sound and feel and excessive vibration at ball impact. However, the Callaway Rogue Irons use the Urethane Microspheres for improving sound and feel and also to dampen those nasty vibrations, but without compromising ball speed or COR, which by the way is claimed to be approximately 0.835, i.e. it's driver-fast. Bottom line, considering their reasonable price tag, the Rogue Irons will provide you with good levels of forgiveness, distance and consistency, and if you're a mid-handicapper looking for a good set of irons, these are it.
