Callaway is going Rogue again. Building on the massively popular 2018 Rogue line, the Carlsbad-based company today officially launches the 2022 Callaway Rogue ST family of drivers, which features four models: Rogue ST Max, Rogue ST Max D, Rogue ST Max LS, and Rogue Max LS Triple Diamond. Engineers added new technology and more extreme weighting to the original Rogue framework to produce the Rogue ST (Speed Tuned) line, which Callaway is calling its fastest, most stable drivers ever.
2022 Callaway Rogue ST drivers: The lineup
In terms of the “family members:” Briefly, Rogue ST Max fits the broadest range of players and is the ST Max family’s core offering. Rogue ST Max D, not surprisingly, is a draw-biased model. In keeping with the Epic Speed line’s nomenclature, Rogue ST Max LS is a lower-spinning head that promotes a neutral ball flight. Rogue ST Triple Diamond LS is a slightly smaller, more compact low-spin head suited for better players. No matter the player – the Rogue ST has you covered!
Rogue ST Max:
The highest MOI head in the Rogue ST lineup, Rogue ST Max features a slight draw bias and will fit the broadest number of players. Callaway expects everyone from low handicappers to high handicappers to fit into the ST Max, calling it “the best combination of distance and forgiveness in a Callaway driver.” Callaway touts the interplay between the titanium unibody construction and Triaxial Carbon crown and sole and the associated weight savings, which allows for high MOI/high launch-producing weight distribution.
Rogue ST Max D
Another high-MOI offering, the ST Max D features a more upright lie angle and reduced face progression, as well as internal and external weighting to favor a draw. The face is also the longest heel-to-toe in the family for maximum forgiveness and sits slightly closed at address.
Rogue ST Max LS
The low-spin offering in the Rogue ST lineup, Rogue ST Max LS is a more workable, lower spin head designed to produce a more neutral ball flight and stronger trajectory. Only mid-to-low handicap players need apply.
Rogue ST Triple Diamond LS
Rogue ST Triple Diamond LS is, as would be expected, the lowest spinning driver in the lineup. At 450cc, it’s a more compact offering and features a shape Callaway’s tour staff and high-speed players gravitate toward. Neutral-to-fade bias. “Take the left side of the golf course out of play” club.
