Callaway engineers say Jailbreak and Face Cup are the two most effective speed-enhancing technologies the equipment maker has developed. And they used them in their new line of Rogue fairway woods to ensure that these sticks are the most powerful they have created in the category.
“The challenge was to make these technologies work together,” says Dr. Alan Hocknell, Callaway’s senior vice president of research and development. “That technological synergy is what makes Rogue fairways an engineering marvel, and an absolute powerhouse.”
Other attributes that help fuel that power includes the redefinition of the geometry of the leading edge to improve airflow and promote faster head speed, plus an ultra-thin, Carpenter 455 steel face encourage greater ball velocity. At the same time, Hocknell adds, the clubs boast an exceptionally low center of gravity as a result of its proprietary Internal Standing Wave technology as well as the triaxial carbon composite material it uses in the crown to save weight.
That makes these sticks easy to launch, he says, and extraordinarily versatile. And it also helps increase the moment of inertia for greater forgiveness.
The Roge fairway wood is available in two versions, Standard and Sub Zero. The Sub Zero is more of a better player’s club and possesses all the technological features of the Standard as well as a 5-gram weight screw in the sole’s front to help position the CG low and forward to lower spin.
Both models come in 3+ (13.5 degrees) and 3 (15 degrees), with the Sub Zero, also offered in 5 (18 degrees) and the Standard in 4 (17 degrees), 5 (19 degrees), Heaven Wood (20 degrees), 7 (21 degrees), 9 (23 degrees) and 11 (25 degrees).
