You can’t get much more than this in terms of hybrid options. Hannah Holden takes a closer look
The Callaway Rogue ST hybrids line-up is an early contender to be the biggest on the market. There are four very distinct models catering to low-handicap, fast-swinging golfers all the way to beginners and slower-swinging seniors.
Callaway Rogue ST Hybrids: First Impressions
I really like the way this hybrid range has a key visual theme that ties them all together despite the actually shaping and style of each one being quite radically different. Whether you’re someone who prefers a fairway wood or iron-shape hybrid, there’s something to suit your eye here.
Callaway Rogue ST Hybrids: The Line-up
Callaway Rogue ST Pro
This is designed with the better player in mind. It has a smaller, more compact shaping and shallower face. It is the most workable hybrid in the line-up thanks to its neutral CG. It also has an enhanced sole camber allowing for more versatility and better turf interaction from a variety of lies.
Callaway Rogue ST Max
This is designed to be the longest hybrid in the Rogue ST range. It has slightly stronger lofts to suit golfers looking for speed and forgiveness.
Callaway Rogue ST Max OS
Offering an oversized head shape for increased forgiveness, this is also a draw bias model. It features Callaway’s widest loft offering in a hybrid with options from 3 to 8.
Callaway Rogue ST Max OS Lite
This is Callaway’s lightest and easiest-to-swing hybrid. It features specific lightweight components which are engineered for slower-swinging players who want to generate more speed. It is also draw bias.
Callaway Rogue ST Hybrids: The Technology
Inside the club head the Jailbreak system has been completely redesigned. There are two separate Jailbreak batwings which have been pushed out to the perimeter. These make the body of the club stiffer while allowing the face to flex increasing ball speeds.
Launch and spin has been optimised thanks to the tungsten speed cartridge. In the Max model there is 24 grams of high-density tungsten in the sole which allows for a precise centre of gravity for optimal launch and more ball speed.
Each model and loft features a unique club face designed using artificial intelligence. It features a specially treated high strength 455 face cup and optimises speed, launch and spin.
