The Rogue Fairway wood is the first fairway wood with Callaway’s Jailbreak ball-speed-enhancing technology. In Rogue fairway woods, the ultra-thin, 455 Carpenter steel clubface is cast separately for precise rendering of Face Cup’s renowned cup-like architecture, especially the rim around the face’s perimeter. The shaping and varying thicknesses of the rim are critical to its ability to flex and rebound at impact, which promotes fast ball speed, especially on off-center hits.
ENHANCING THE JAILBREAK EFFECT WITH IMPROVED X-FACE VFT TECHNOLOGY: Callaway’s X-Face VFT technology entails varying the thickness of the face in strategic ways and places to help the face flex faster, especially on off-center hits. In Rogue, we enhanced VFT through a sophisticated optimization process that consists of successive iterations using finite element analysis to simulate the impact of the ball at more than 100 unique impact locations on the face. The thicknesses of every point on the face are incrementally adjusted during each iteration, based on the allowable stress limit of the face material and the face-speed limit established by the USGA.
FAST BALL SPEED FOR LONG DISTANCE ON CENTER AND OFF-CENTER IMPACTS: The overall benefit of Jailbreak Effect in all three Rogue drivers is the promotion of fast ball speed for long distance from a relatively large area of the face, to help golfers attain long distance more often, both on center-face contact and off-center contact.
