Callaway Rogue Irons - Steel
Rogue Irons combine two of Callaway's most innovative clubface technologies in 360 Face Cup and Variable Face Thickness (VFT) technology to promote faster balls speeds across a larger area of the face. 360 Face Cup employs a shallow, flexible rim around the perimeter of the face that flexes and releases at impact to increase ball speed and minimise distance loss on those off centre strikes. VFT also influences how the face itself flexes to promote more ball speed on off-center hits. The combination of these two technologies promotes increased ball speed resulting in incredible distance.
The upside of utilising an ultra-thin clubface is than you can deliver extreme ball speed and distance, the downside is that you incur excessive vibration that generates an unpleasant sound and feel. To eliminate this, Callaway have incorporated a new technology called elastic-urethane microspheres, dampening vibration of the thin-fast face to improve sound and feel without compromising COR or ball speed.
Finally MIM'd tungsten has been introduced to deliver optimal ball flight and control, Callaway refer to as their Internal Standing Wave. By using MIM'd (metal injected molding) tungsten weighting it allowed Callaway's engineers to accurately position the CG in each of the long irons with extraordinary precision, promoting optimum launch and control at each individual loft. The tungsten, twice as heavy as steel, concentrates significant weight into a small space in the form of an intricately shaped part, which is key to precisely controlling CG location.
Callaway have fitted the Rogue Irons with the popular True Temper XP95 shaft as standard. The XP95 shaft is ultralight and designed to deliver a high trajectory with explosive distance.
