Callaway have made a bit of a habit of returning to some of their older product names in the last few years, and 2022 is no different.
Big Bertha was reinvented in 2020, 2021 saw the second generation of the Epic name, and for 2022 it's the turn of Rogue which has now been 'Speed Tuned' - hence the name Rogue ST.
As this suggests, Callaway have spent plenty of time working on maximising ball speeds by optimising their Jailbreak technology once more, along with a whole host of other features across three fairway woods and four hybrids.
Callaway Rogue ST Fairway Woods
Callaway's new Rogue ST fairways are said to be a 'breakthrough' in providing all-new levels of speed with plenty of forgiveness. There are three different models available, seeking to cater for every golfer who wants more from what can often be a troublesome part of the bag.
All three fairways feature the all-new Jailbreak ST system, designed to promote speed and stability. The two Jailbreak batwings are moved further to the perimeter of the head, stiffening the body while still allowing the face to flex for high ball speeds.
A Tungsten Speed Cartridge has been included for the first time in a fairway wood. With up to 28g of high-density tungsten added to each head, the CG is pushed lower and further forward, producing lower spin with more ball speed.
Callaway have been using AI to design their face structure for a few years now, and this year's range features an all new optimisation to include speed, launch and spin. The unique pattern is different for each model and loft in the range.
A C300 maraging steel face is treated through a proprietary process to make it stronger and more flexible, while the Flash Face Cup provides speed and spin consistency across the face.
Rogue ST Max Fairway Wood
The Rogue ST Max is the model that will suit the widest range of golfers, as a mid-launch model with a slight draw bias that provides a balanced combination of speed and forgiveness.
It features stronger lofts and a slightly more open face angle compared to the Max D model, along with progressive shaping on the 3 and 5 woods to enhance MOI.
Available from 3W to 11W, this is Callaway's most comprehensive Rogue ST offering.
Rogue ST Max D Fairway Wood
The Rogue ST Max D is Callaway's first dedicated draw fairway wood. It is the highest launching fairway in the lineup and promotes a draw shape thanks to a slightly closed face, more upright lie angle and additional weight in the heel.
It's the highest launching model in the Rogue ST range, and is available in 3W, 5W and 7W.
Rogue ST LS Fairway Wood
Described as Callaway's fastest fairway wood in a compact players shape, the ST LS is designed with a deeper face and an additional forward weight screw which pushes the CG forward lower spin rates.
The shape and face profile make the LS the lowest spinning, most fade capable fairway in the Rogue ST range.
The LS model comes with option of a 3HL model at 16.5 degrees and a 3+ model at 13.5 degrees.
Callaway Rogue ST Hybrids
Callaway's hybrid range has also received a facelift in 2022 with four new models available which the brand say are set to 'push the boundary' of hybrid performance.
The new AI designed Jailbreak system has received a complete redesign to promote even more speed and stability. The two Jailbreak frames are pushed out to the perimeter of the head, providing more stiffness and allowing the face to flex more, raising ball speeds.
The high-strength 455 Face Cup features a new AI face optimisation to include speed launch and spin, and the unique face pattern is different for every loft and model in the lineup.
Up to 24g of precision tungsten is added to the head to allow for more precise CG locations, giving optimal launch for each model with even higher ball speeds.
Rogue ST Max Hybrid
The Max is Callaway's longest Rogue ST hybrid model, with stronger lofts aiming to suit the widest range of golfers seeking speed, forgiveness and all-round performance.
The Max model features iron-like shaping, with a refined sole to promote better turf interaction. Said to be perfect for the 'game-improvement' golfer, the Max provides high launch with a semi-draw flight bias and is available from 3H to 6H.
Rogue ST Pro Hybrid
The Rogue ST Pro is geared towards the better player, with compact fairway wood-like shaping, a shallow face and a neutral CG for the most workability in the Rogue ST line.
The mid launch, low spin setup is available from 2H to 4H.
Rogue ST Max OS Hybrid
An oversized head shape with increased forgiveness and a draw bias, the Max OS is designed to provide easy launch and more confidence over the ball.
The sole construction promotes better turf interaction and versatility, and is the widest offering in the range with models from 3H to 8H available.
Rogue ST Max OS Lite Hybrid
The easiest-to-swing lightweight option, the Max OS Lite features a larger shape and lightweight components. These make it ideal for slower swingers looking to generate more speed.
Up to 15g of tungsten is added to the head to promote easier launch, with low spin and a draw bias. Like the Max OS, the OS Lite is available in lofts between 3H and 8H.
The Rogue ST Fairways and Hybrids are available at retail from 4th March.
The Fairways are priced at £299, complete with Golf Pride Tour Velvet 360 grip and a choice of Tensei or Project X shafts.
The Hybrids are priced at £249, also with a choice of Mitsubishi Tensei or Project X shafts and a range of grips.
