Callaway Rogue X Irons Review: The most Aggressive Iron in Golf
[Music] like I say Smith a down a break girlfriends in Suffolk and I am being spoiled I have the all the Calloway ions I've also done all the drivers so if you've seen them or haven't seen them sorry pop on the channel have a look I might even put an info card or something off the top here now I have the ions do I've done the standard rogue iron if you haven't seen that one pop in the channel have a look and also I've done the rogue Pro pop in the channel have a look this is the last one in the series it's a shame climbing join here these this is the rogue X this is the most interesting iron I think I'm gonna test for a while Caillat are making no apologies at all for this club the whole idea on this one is lighter longer and stronger it's stronger lofted it's a six I'm twenty four degrees that's my five four four Rhine and the shaft link is longer so we're now Scott and starting to get like yeah like five iron lengths for I lost him and it's lighter as well so they're making this club at site ten grams or so lighter than the standard rope so the whole idea is someone can swing it faster with less loft longer shaft head travels faster you can get the idea they want they want the whole set so someone can be hitting an 8-iron where their buddies are being hit in six times right now the problem is when you get a club like this and you just crank it to twenty four degrees and call it six on the bottom it's going to launch low and it's going to react like a four so you've got to put serious amounts of tech in this thing to actually make it look and produce some kind of performance figures and flight of a six I you now what they've done in this 360 cup face has been in their irons for a long while now and Callaway asana has they're doing another model another model they're finding like a more refined more tuned way of doing it and then learning is the going on their field at the moment they've reached the pinnacle of what their 360 Cup face idea can do until the next one possibly but for the moment this is the best now the way they do it is obviously the head when they make it to be able to work on the face they make it two parts the body and the face so they can do the 360 cup face bits and pieces on the face but they can also have the variable face thickness so they can make the face thinner in certain areas so in the middle they have reached the 0.83 coefficient of restitution bounce trampoline effect where you want to call it off the face so hottest iron you can get but we need it off the middle heel-toe they've made the face thinner so when you lose efficiency by moving away from the sweet spot you gain a bit more from the face but now to spring a bit more which would normally be illegal if it was in the middle to allow for a less drop-off of efficiency because how callaway have measured that most people when they miss it miss it lo here or lo toe which is quite a cool idea now because of the 360 cup face and making that face and very very springy it makes ana rendus noise so because people don't want that what they do is they fill it with something because it's a hollow head design the problem with that when you fill it fill anything like urethane or foam or whether it be because it doesn't give allow the face to spring it dampens sound lovely the problem is now the face don't spring so you've got a lovely sounding Club but now it doesn't explode doesn't like fire for face so you can either have a club which fires really well and sounds awful or you can have a club which sounds quite nice but then doesn't as perform as what they want it to do so the guys of Callaway decided what we're going to do is we're gonna put holes as in like air pockets inside the urethane which sell how is the urethane to give okay these guys must get paid millions for doing this research and development in irons are going mental which is well we'll see if it works or not so they see some big the blade length is actually to pay off seen some clubs which are bigger blade links so this is actually not too bad it's got a horrendous amount of offset though it's got a huge amount of offset especially because I've just done the pro watt I'm going to this one it looks wow it looks like that the shaft is here the heads over here massively thick top line it's huge and then the sauce oh wait I got G c2 HMT on the floor got some range balls we're just going to be discussing at the moment how this thing feels because this is gonna be interesting when you hit something this massive and yeah I've got a trimer event let's don't go left don't go left because it amount of offset should be out work it out that's just horrendous not as they horrendously bad that's just Wow one two four ball speed twelve point seven launch range balls remember so range balls will launch lower spin more yeah I've had that discussion quite a few times five nine spin hmm 175 bang on target bang bang bang on target what is it another one I see quite a lot the feel of that that was quite nice
explosion oh man that's just it's another one on top of another one one two four thirteen seven launch six one spin once in four bang on it yeah 1.3 again that was on top of the other shot I'd you know what I hate game improvement clubs normally I hate battering rams never been a fan of them I'm liking this this is kind of react I haven't had this reaction the hitting and iron since when I hit the jpx nine hundred hot metals they are a cool little Club right it's hit two ball I love that one too 4:13 3 launch five nine spin one seven six point four right this is just like a target seeking thing this is my favorite iron so far I can't say that can I yeah I have done this is my favorite one so far I actually quite like this shouldn't do really because this is huge but felt nice felt lovely every bit as good as everything else that hit so far the the calorie rogue or the pro see it one more it's kind of fraction wall right get left a bit it's got a fraction wall right one two five ball speed six twelve point seven launched six one spin one seven six four point eight hang on a minute it's not bending over and not look at that data I can't play these can i right I won't know yet cuz I'll go go hit some on GC - hmm t with my game ball vise bro to see how a premium ball works well only thing I'm worried about is spin cuz that I cut yeah that's kind of that's crazy look how accurate ladies I'm loving that let's go hit this with my going ball when I see how it works with a premium ball rather than the range balls okay I now hit low two balls and the rogue X with McCampbell Vice Pro now I was getting a little bit over exuberant should I say with the performance out on the range because it was just funny how one it sounded to be fair it is it is a super super game improvement on it is designed for one thing just firing off a face and it was so accurate that's what I couldn't believe do it when I was actually out on the range hitting it okay real balls it's a long long long way now when it comes to range balls they spin more don't go quite so far and when it comes to a real ball went into spin slightly less launches slightly high versus in a spin slightly less yeah you won't go in a long way but it's also into a little bit of if you're going to be a little bit off line you can't end up going quite a long way off line no different to our driver right I've hit or ten shots or so yeah ten shots and we fare if you look at my ball speed they go from one three four when I absolutely nail it to standard normal 128 I've got two shots in there 123 and 122 when I didn't quite catch it left them in so from as you can see if you leave them in complete yet brings my ball speed down to about 130 if you were to take them out because I miss hits 131 it doesn't really make that much difference whatsoever but if we take them out at the moment you can see what happens when you strike them quite well and you can see what happens when you don't 14 7 launch on average tiny little fade 3 9 4 9 now say 4,000 spin this is my only concern because it's only 4,000 which is not a lot when it okay it's worth bit explaining now if this was a 6-iron going 6-iron distance a normal standard 6-iron distance and it was spinning at 4 I would instantly say look it's no it's not functional you can't hear a 6-iron 16 distance normal traditional 6 and at spin at 4,000 it goes 32 yards in the air and it descends at 43 degrees that's just not however when you put a little number on the end of it saying 201 average carry it's not technically like a 6-iron it's now more like a 4 right so if you're spinning a 4 at 4,000 rpm and then it's going at 32 peak height and descending a 43 which is session not bad for a 4 on and carry a 201 an average 3.5 yards of flying that you can see me there well I don't when I that's just me mean being human my strike differences and face the path differences so if I was to go on Club data there you can see that my club head speed now I actually got one of them my last there I actually peaked a hundred miles now for a sick side I didn't because it's not like a sick sign it's like my 5-iron if not a fraction more length so yeah that's where it's coming from because the shaft is longer there you go but my average there was 98 if if even if you take my ones that I've grayed out because I'm just not counting and they were still 9996 within around it was the strike which done those what was the ones that I missed hit 40 milto 10 mil hi yes 9 mil toe 7 mil hi year so Heights home misses that's what is so slightly heavy shots that's what I'm draining old distance down but on average 98 miles an hour for Mike leveraged speed my path was in two out and with face closed however these quiet aren't fit for me these are clubs which are sent straight through from Callaway so they obviously
standard exactly how they're made to be standard and then custom fit so the lying --gel doesn't suit me yeah but you can see the difference there actually this is a great custom fitting thing when I'm hitting shots with the face which is close to a in throughout path it should draw yet the lie is wrong you can see that loft the weather Loftus pointing has quite a big impact on where there the ball ends up going because I'm averaging right slightly where it should actually be averaging left if the live is a right so BIA but you can see that that's up in there on the screen so you can have a look it's mental this club is crazy I have never hit a 6-iron which to be fair has gone up quite well launched quite well compared to other clubs I'm amazed that it can go this distance being actually feeling quite nice quite confidence-inspiring could I play him no reason why is because the I strike it better if we go to the strikes we get all to the strikes there see if I can just get old strikes on there there we go so you can get an idea of all the strikes I'm moving around the club now I have found when I do my trace patterns when I have a smaller Club it focuses my mind on strike a lot better when I have a bigger Club thicker top-line massive soul mass amounts of offset it looks like a battering ram and it gives you the idea of confidence that you could physically hit it anywhere and still get a good amount of distance from here and to be fair you can the problem is the strike alone causes a massive difference when it comes to left and right and front to back so that's why I would always go down and more for me because I have mapped myself you need to go map your own strike patterns etc and then what your tendencies are with different sized clubs etc so you can make an informed choice about what clubs to buy so could I use this no I couldn't is it great to use of course it is he's just is brilliant hitting this out of the range seeing then things fly it so it's it's great and and for a game improvement person who just wants distance these clubs are crazy these are great so I would definitely say if you want distance and you don't want to be apologizing for it you just want to be hitting an 8-iron with you guys hit and six signs go give them a try they are great they feel good to be fair they're great performing clubs considering if you look at my strike there I've struck them all over the pond say all over the face but my see my pattern goes between sort of middle and then wonders that way up the toe or that way as you see on camera but it does and I'm going from 186 when I don't quite catch it to 205 now considering I've hit that much difference on the face that's a very very well performing Club so anyway I hope you liked the video if you did click that like button below comment below with whatever you would like me to do when it comes to other comparisons how you like me to do the videos or anything you'd like down by the side we're over here there's a little subscribe button if you could click that that allows me to continue doing more of this kind of content yeah so you guys can see when you want to go buy something how well does it perform we'll catch you again see
Callaway 2018 Rogue Irons Review
[Music] hello everybody we're head state overall isn't fitting studio and we're going to be talking about the brand new Callaway rogue ions this year callaway have released four new ions as part of their rogue family in previous years with clubs such as the epic the apex and the XR they've only released two iron heads these have been the standard one and the pro this year on top of that they've also released the rogue X and the rogue W the four iron heads have all got slightly different properties and they're going to suit slightly different golfers the standard head is rather similar to what we've seen with the XR and previously but they're stepped it up a notch this year they've got the 360 face technology which enables them to have a really thin face which gives you ultimate ball speed and ultimate distance this year they've taken it on another level previously there's been a few complaints that the noise hasn't been that good this thin-faced although you're getting fantastic results with with distance the thin face does create a little bit of a hardened noise not one that we particularly want to hear this year they've put this urethane layer in behind the club head which means the the noise is far better much more pleasing to hear on top of that they've also released the rogue pro lion this year it's a lot different a lot more different to the standard head if you look at the epic perhaps or or the XR before that the standard head was quite similar to the pro whereas this year they've given it a brand new color scheme they've made that top-line really thin and clean and their loss are a little bit more towards the traditional ones that we got used to seeing previously really interesting how these goes they really look do you look very good on top of that you've got the rogue X this is their longest iron that Callaway have ever produced they're not embarrassed about this they've come out and said these ions are strong in loft but they've been able to tailor this by having a wireless sole than usual this then brings the center of gravity back in the club head and gives you a much more traditional launch so although these are going to go an awful long way you will get a consistent fly so be interesting to see quite how that works and and if the performance is there on top of that we've got the rogue double you won't be hitting that today this is a club which is suited for someone who's got a slightly slower swing speed and the loss on these are quite lofted actually but the technology in the club head enables you to get a really good distance so if someone who's struggling for for a nice ball flight these are going to be great irons for you to come and try out let's hit some shots for them let's get some data and then we can compare these three irons against each other and talk about what their what their soar benefits are to each golfer [Music] so I've just hit some shots with all three of these brand-new Callaway rogue irons this screen behind me is all the data that I've collected might look like a big screen of numbers but I'll try and help you go through them as easily as possible and keep them simple I started off with the standard row head really nice actually down by the ball it looked fantastic looks really easy to hit inspired a lot of confidence and on top of that when you struck it the noise isn't what we've heard in the last couple years from Callaway irons sounded great back to really what we want to hear out of an iron if you look at that carry distance second in from the right-hand side that's the figure that I feel is most important if you're looking at trying to fly over a bunker or another obstacle you need to know how far it's going in the air so to take that figure on board as I say it is important it's the main when I look at when trying to get over an obstacle for us one for me 178 is very good I carry my 7 iron around 170 yards so immediately I've got a gain there but also for me is quite what stands out a little bit if you look at the backspin figures they're just left of center you can see that it's spinning at just under six thousand revs per minute which for a 7-iron is very good often out these distance irons you see they go a long way but your stopping power greens is massively reduced whereas with these that's still a really good spin level and so you're not going to have that compromised if we move down into the rogue pro I thought these were quite surprising eyeing actually they they looked fantastic down for the ball as we expected really nice looking head felt great off the face but actually went a little bit further than the standard rogue ions I didn't quite catch the first two with the standard head which might skewed the averages slightly but still these went an awful long way for a pro head which is which is good if you look at the spin rate slightly down on the standard head but this has been compensated by the peak height if you look to the one left of the carry distances that's the total height it gets in flight obviously the higher it goes the softer it lands so that's going to make up on that on that stopping power from but for me the standout performer here was the rogue X we knew it was going to go a
long way from those standard lot from those stronger than standard lost but Wow I mean as I say 170 for my 7-iron let's go in 197 yards that's that's super long I've gained nearly 30 yards of that Club but although I have gained that distance the trade-off is that spin rate you can see it's dropped down below 5,000 revs per minute but if you're someone who's looking for ultimate distance then these arms are going to be fantastic Callaway have as I said change the center of gravity on that Club slightly pushed it behind Center which if you look at the peak height is 41 yards that's pretty similar to the row pro line so that's going to help you get some get some grab on on the green so it's super long but you also are going to get some stuff out of it and they felt nice to hit as well it wasn't it wasn't making a rocket launcher in fact they've they did feel like a solid iron so we've got three different irons here all performing really well which one suits you best I wouldn't want to try and categorize each golf club into a certain type of golfer won't you come down hit some shots all them and see which one you are getting the best results out of we've got hundreds of shafts a few to try so I'm sure between that and these three different heads we can really tailor something to suit your needs and give us a call give us an email get booked in and come and have a go also if you're liking these types of videos gives us follow on all our social media channels it's @rl Pro Shop we'll be placing plenty more so thank you for watching and we hope see you here again soon
