The Callaway Rogue Fairway Wood is one of the  most forgiving  and consistent fairway  woods  on the market. This was validated by Golf Digest, who gave it a Gold rating on their 2018 Hot List. 


When a player of Sergio Garcia’s caliber decides to put a club in the  bag , you know it has to be amazing. With its innovative technological advancements specially designed to give you more distance with less effort and more forgiveness, you can’t go wrong with the Callaway Rogue Fairway Wood..


Key Features

The Callaway Rogue Fairway Wood’s Jailbreak Technology utilizes two thin steel rods behind the face which act as a stabilizer, concentrating the face flexing to produce incredible distance no matter where the golf ball is struck on the face. 

The Callaway Rogue Fairway Wood combines its Jailbreak Technology with a super strong and incredibly thin Carpenter 455 steel clubface insert, providing explosive distance and forgiveness. 

The Triaxial Carbon Crown of the Callaway Rogue Fairway Wood saves weight at the top of the clubhead which lowers the center of gravity for an optimal launch angle with less spin.

Specs

 Starting with a strong 3-wood with 13.5 degrees of loft, you can also choose lofts of 15, 17, 19, 20, 21, 23, and 25 degrees. Compared to other fairway woods, they offer a lighter swing weight (D2) and the clubhead volume ranges from 134-171 cc. Note** The 4-wood, 9-wood and 11-wood are available for right-handed golfers only.

Callaway offers several different stock shaft options for the Rogue Fairway Wood: players with slow swing speeds should opt for the Aldila Synergy 60 Fairway Graphite shaft, which is available in Light and Regular Flex. 


Every other stock shaft is available in Regular, Stiff, and Extra Stiff and includes: Project X EvenFlow 75 Fairway Graphite, Project X HZRDUS Yellow 75 Driver Graphite, Aldila Quaranta 50 Fairway Graphite, and the Project X HZRDUS Yellow 85 Fairway Graphite shafts.

Design and Technology

The Callaway Rogue Fairway Wood has been designed to give a player what they need from a  fairway wood : distance, accuracy, and forgiveness. 


In regards to distance, the Callaway Rogue Fairway Wood uses its Jailbreak Technology in a fairway wood for the first time to make the clubhead more stable, focusing more energy into the golf ball on shots hit in the sweet spot, heel or toe. Combined with the ultra-thin steel face and Face Cup technology, the Callaway Rogue Fairway Wood delivers incredible distance and forgiveness from the  tee  and the fairway.

For the recreational golfer, having the ability to get the ball airborne quickly, and the Callaway Rogue Fairway Wood makes it easier than ever. The key to higher launch is a lower center-of-gravity, and Callaway achieved this with their Triaxial Carbon Crown and a fixed hosel.


 With so much weight saved, the center of gravity is moved lower and deeper in the clubhead. The result is a fairway wood that will launch the golf ball quickly and with less spin, which will help you hit some of the  best tee shots and long approaches  of your life.
