Rogue ST Max/Max LS/Max Draw/◊◊◊LS

Hot List Gold 2022

Our Review:

WHAT IT DOES: The biggest driver family in Callaway’s history expands the company’s use of artificial intelligence to produce four distinct faces that don’t merely enhance power but control spin. That’s important because large clubheads can boost ball speed but often fight excessive spin. A large central weight cartridge low in the back provides extreme off-center-hit stability. Callaway has also refined its “jailbreak” structure, an internal bracket that joins the crown and sole to stiffen the body and direct energy into the flexing face.

WHY WE LIKE IT: Callaway found that adjustable weights aren’t enough to optimize performance, so the company created these four models with distinct attributes for specific types of golfers. Each features different face angles, lie angles, shapes and degrees of draw bias and spin to better match the needs of different golfer types. The line includes a dedicated draw model (Max D), a maximum forgiveness model (Max), a version that mixes equal parts high forgiveness, neutral launch and low spin (Max LS) and a compact, tour-favored option with the lowest spin (◊◊◊LS).


ROGUE ST MAX: Tungsten way in the back helps to make this the most stable driver in the Rogue ST line and a good fit for the majority of golfers.

ROGUE ST MAX D: Extra weight in the heel and a unique face design aids those looking to fight a slice.

ROGUE ST MAX LS: The deep tungsten weighting keys both forgiveness and lower spin.

ROGUE ST ◊◊◊LS: A more compact head generally favors better players. The front weighting balances stability with extreme low spin (the lowest in the line) and a flatter flight.

Player Comments

"Overall, this all came together as good as anything. The sound was trampoline yet responsive. You heard it and you felt it, and you were like 'OK, this is it right here.' Even the mis-hits were respectable, with not too much sidepsin."


"So easy. Despite variability of my swings, this corrected everything. LS version gave me extra distance with zero loss of control. Like my old automatic camera: point and shoot."


“Beautiful, understated head. Love the proportions. Annunciates impact. Even mis-hits were straight down range with a perfect combo of height and distance.”
