    Callaway, the largest iron manufacturer, has brought to market the new Rogue ST MAX line and according to the company is the result of upgrading existing technology from the Mavrik family plus adding features not seen before in any of their previous models.

    The story begins with a high strength 450-alloy face cup configured using the results from their now familiar artificial intelligence supercomputer design process. Company tests show the new face provides more consistent ball speeds, impact to impact, with 13.2% less dispersion. Each face design is unique for each loft of each of the four models.

    Weighting has been changed with the use of more tungsten near the sole matched up with the face to lower ball spin, improve trajectory, and add speed without making lofts stronger. Callaway points out in the MAX model the weighting is up to 260% more than the comparable Mavrik model and in the MAX Pro and MAX OS 188% more. Internally the head contains their patented urethane microspheres occupying more space than in previous irons. At impact the microspheres collapse upon themselves, and this means more effective vibration dampening plus a more solid feel.

    The game-improvement MAX is the model best suited for most recreational players with lofts slightly weaker than the old Mavrik models from 2020. The MAX OS super game-improvement irons have a larger amount of offset and wider soles while the MAX OS Lite is for slower swing speed players such as seniors and women with lower swing weight and higher lofts for more carry.

    In the better-player category, the hollow body MAX Pro Callaway points out is almost a derivative of the popular Apex Pro 21 and the semi-muscle back head has a thin topline with little offset. Low handicappers still wanting some game-improvement help should try the MAX Pro.
