Callaway Big Bertha B21 Vs. Callaway Rogue Driver Comparison And Review 2021
The Callaway Big Bertha B21 is the latest incarnation of a driver that has become a favorite among beginners and high handicappers.
But newer doesn’t always mean better. The Callaway Rogue has also been a stalwart for beginners and high handicappers even if Callaway doesn’t make them anymore.
In the following comparison overview, we pit old vs. new in the Callaway Rogue and the Big Bertha B21 drivers.
Callaway Big Bertha B21 Driver Overview
The Big Bertha B21 actually sports a lot of the same features as the Rogue – just updated versions of them.
For example, the Big Bertha and the Rogue both feature Callaway’s jailbreak internal bracing arms which help with shot stability.
In reality, not much has changed in stability between the Big Bertha B21 and the Rogue.
However, we will say that the Big Bertha does produce straighter shots. That has more to do with the internal heel-oriented weighting that creates natural draw bias.
So if you are having trouble staying on the fairway, the Big Bertha would actually be the better choice between these two drivers.
The Big Bertha also has a similar carbon crown design as the Callaway Rogue which gave these drivers an almost identical feel and club head speed.
But the big question is, which driver played longer? The Big Bertha takes the distance title but only by about 6 yards on average.
Callaway Rogue Driver Overview
The Callaway Rogue has a very forgiving face but it may not do much to help correct your slice.
Overall, the Callaway Rogue is still a very solid driver considering how old it is and how many new drivers Callaway have been released since the Rogue’s time.
One similar feature is the OptiFit hosel which is a nice touch for players looking for more forgiveness and shot-shaping.
It’s true that the Big Bertha played straighter and slightly longer but in terms of forgiveness, these 2 drivers are almost exactly the same.
The Callaway Rogue will also allows you to work the ball a little bit better because the internal weighting is even around the perimeter as opposed to being focused in the heel.
The Big Bertha was the longer of these two drivers; but by a negligible amount. It was less workable overall but would still be a good choice for anyone struggling with finding the fairway.
The Rogue is still a solid driver that offers comparable distance, forgiveness and more workability in a more affordable driver.
