There’s the same color scheme with the Callaway Rogue irons as the woods which is a subtle splash of ‘teal’. As you’d expect the regular Rogue iron is quite chunky with plenty of offset and the ‘pro’ version is more compact.
So the Callaway Rogue irons feature something called urethane microspheres behind the face which dampen vibrations without sacrificing ball speed. A: “Thin, fast, high-COR (bounciness, trampoline effect) iron faces promote fast ball speed, yet they are subject to a significant amount of vibration at impact, resulting in a harsh, ‘click’ sound and feel.
A: The internal standing wave in each iron head consists of a specially shaped piece of MIM’ed tungsten. “Extremely low in the long- irons to promote easier launch and high, long flight; and progressively higher as loft increases to promote a lower flight in the short- irons for added control.
The regular Rogue irons have fairly wide-ranging appeal but will be a bit too chunky for those who crave a certain look at address. The dispersion left to right and front to back is pretty good for me and the ball speed is very solid.
The spin is too low but that just seems to be the norm for this type of iron these days, and you just have to adjust to the fact they may run out 10-15 yards. With the Rogue Pro irons I struggled to get the same distance as I felt the drop off in carry was much more noticeable when you didn’t hit it right out of the middle.
360 Face Cup FT for More Speed MIM’d Internal Standing Wave Urethane-Microspheres More Distance on Shots Good For Beginners and Seniors. Our winner, in this case, the Callaway Golf Rogue X Irons, is there to support you in your better future.
The FT dramatically expand the part of the face that moves the golf balls. It helps give optimal launch and control over each scaffold.

Its lightweight pads are meant to help you achieve high projection conditions. Callaway Rogue X is the right choice for a reasonable distance that offers you an average of 7 yards.
Its thin and sharp base features Wearable-Face Technology to accelerate the expansion of the facial area. Callaway iron is significantly lighter, longer, stronger lofts as compared to standard.
Wide sole pulls the CG low and deep for easy, high launch and long carry. The face-cup employs a shallow, Flexible-Rim around the circumference of the face that influences to increase the speed of the ball.
FT also affects how the face-flexes itself to promote higher ball speed on off-center shots. Tungsten-Weighting promotes optimal projection and control on each accuracy scaffold.
Tungsten is twice as heavy as steel, so concentrates significant weight into a small-space as part-of a complex shape, which is important for properly controlling the CG space. Urethane is used to improve sound and feel and to reduce vibration.
Callaway Rogue is a suitable option for the professional golfer who calls it a short spin with long-distance in their golf course. It provides a long shaft with a strong scaffolding and excellent performance.
Its 360 face incorporates a shallow and adjustable rim that, in effect, releases both flexes and increases ball velocity. Callaway says the lighter, stronger, longer trend has spread over from Japan, so Rogue X are specifically created to perform at average and above-average swing speeds.
Callaway says the new faces deliver more distance than an updated XR style could have provided. With the Rogue irons, Callaway’s Iron-face has a different thickness pattern that Rockwell says is more energetic, resulting in more ball velocity, especially on mishits low in the face.
A forged golf iron is a club that is made out of one solid block of metal. Hot metal is poured in the mold into the desired shape, and the result is a cast iron golf club.
Although they are cast golf irons, most people call them cavity back designs. The process of producing a cast iron is quite a bit easier and cheaper than that of a forged.
More forgiving Usually have a lower center of gravity Large sweet spot Cheaper Of course, the process of making a forged iron is a bit more labor-intensive than that of a cast, so you will pay more for a set of forged irons.
Great feel Ability to work the golf ball Have become more forgiving in recent years Mostly you are going to want to use the cast if you are a mid to higher handicapper that demands quite a bit when it comes to forgiveness and distance.
Lower handicapper Mid handicappers looking to improve Golfers who like to play using feel as opposed to pure power Golfers who want to hit fades and draws while they are on the course Large manufacturers know that most of the consumers are looking for game improvement type irons, and those will undoubtedly fall into the cast category.
Callaway used artificial intelligence to develop this iron into a very long and forgiving golf club that has had some fantastic results for the mid to high handicapper. The Rogue Callaway irons of last year were very well-received, but they didn’t have the best feel.
They used their new Echo Damping system to help make it, so there is little to no vibration when you hit a golf ball with these irons. With the better feel and the increased distance these irons provide, you will be very happy with the TaylorMade SIM Max.
The newest cast release for the Cleveland Golf Company is the UHF iron. The grooves on these wedges have tour zip capability that will let you stop the ball where you want it on a green.
When looking at forged irons, you need to make sure that you remember the manufacturing process for these clubs is a bit more expensive. Cobra is known for making very forgiving and easy to hit golf clubs for mid to higher handicaps.
However, true players know that the Cobra forged irons are some of the best feeling clubs in the game of golf. The CNC milling on the face and grooves makes these irons precise; if there is a type of shot you want to hit, you can do it with the Cobra Forged.
The Callaway Golf Apex Smoke Iron is all about distance while still providing plenty of feels and shot-making capability for the better player. As far as feel is concerned, they are made from a 1025 mild carbon steel, and Callaway somehow managed to get their Urethane Microspheres inside the club head as well.
This is a set of clubs that will earn a spot in your golf bag for a very long time. The shape and design of the cavity back iron itself are what make it so forgiving and easy to hit.
The center of gravity can be built to be lower, and there are inserts, weights, and even things like urethane microspheres that get injected into the club head itself. These things are precisely what makes players choose the forged over the cavity back.
The golf purist doesn’t want anything that could cause instability or vibration in a club head. They want a piece of metal with grooves that they can rely on to produce golf shots.
For some players, they are going to want forged clubs throughout their entire bag, and this will include the wedges. The most important part about a golf wedge is making sure that it has the feel, bounce, and spin that you need to hit a variety of shots.
An interesting fact that surprises many golfers is that Hokey wedges are cast and not forged. The Hokey wedges are made by Titlist, and they are very high performing and one of the most widely used on the PGA Tour.
Since the Hokey wedges are so widely known for being used by professionals, the fact that they are not forged comes as a surprise. One of the reasons that the Hokey is not a forged club is because it is offered in so many lofts and grind combinations.
Instead, they can make them more precise by having an exact mold for each loft, bounce, and grind combination. If they miss a shot slightly with a cavity back or cast iron, then they still have a chance of a decent result.
