Callaway Mavrik Vs Callaway Rogue Drivers Comparison And Review 2021

The Callaway Rogue driver came out in early 2018. That seems like a lifetime ago due to all the Callaway models that have been introduced since. In 2020, Callaway succeeded the Rogue driver with the updated Mavrik driver.

However, newer doesn’t always mean better. The Callaway Rogue certainly still has it’s place but how does it really compare to the Mavrik in terms of performance? Find out by reading our comparison overview.

Callaway Mavrik Driver Overview

The Callaway Mavrik employs and updated Flash Face but much of it’s features are derived from the older Rogue driver.

One of the biggest improvements Callaway made from the Rogue driver is the updated Flash Face SS20 face architecture. The Mavrik uses a special titanium material for the face that gives it an excellent sound and feel at impact.

The Flash Face technology also rebounds a bit better than the Variable Face Thickness of the older Rogue driver. Essentially, these features do the same thing – the Mavrik simply does it a bit better. Yes, that means that the Mavrik driver plays longer than the Rogue.

Another cool thing we realized while testing the Mavrik was that swing speed was slightly increased. The Cyclone Aero head shape tapers the back of the head to a high degree that seems to allow more air to flow over and down it – creating less drag.

Callaway Rogue Driver Overview

The Callaway Rogue driver is still impressive after well over 3 years since it was released. It’s essentially a lighter cousin of the Mavrik.

As soon as we put down the Mavrik and picked up the Rogue, we could tell it was the lighter of the 2 drivers. The triaxial carbon crown gives thus driver an airy feel while still putting plenty of oomph behind the sweet spot.

Like the Mavrik, the Rogue driver features the internal Jailbreak bracing bars. However, we liked the overall feel and control we were getting from the Rogue more than the Mavrik.

We figured it’s gotta be because of the hourglass shape design of the internal bars that increase stability both laterally and horizontally.

While the Callaway Mavrik played longer, we noticed that the Rogue flew straighter and delivered more control. Still, there’s no denying the feel of the Mavrik’s titanium face. This one was a tough one to call so we will leave it to you.

If you prioritize distance, go with the Mavriks. If you want more accuracy and control, check our the Rogue driver.

Mavrik Drivers

A top driver from a top brand aimed at achieving maximum ball speeds, distance and forgiveness for any player.

Callaway Rogue Drivers

In 20 Words Or Less

The Callaway Rogue driver combines lightweight design with impressive forgiveness and distance. This driver still has a lot to offer.

Mavrik Driver – First Impressions

Once you get passed the bright colors and attractive design, you can immediately see how light and wieldy the Mavrik drivers really are.

The face on the club is huge and it gives you the confidence you need to let the driver rip, even on the first tee with a crowd gathered to watch.The face is also ultra thin, ultra light special steel which sends the ball into orbit on contact.

Two internal jailbreak bars on under side of the club hold everything together by connecting the sole with the crown and adding extra stability, feel, consistency and distance.The shape of the driver is also aerodynamic and like everything with the clubs, focused on more swing speed.

The Different Mavrik Driver Versions:

The Mavrik is for your average player or mid handicapper, medium levels of forgiveness, and mid spin. This one has a standard launch angle too.

The Mavrik max is similar with more forgiveness and a higher ball flight for higher handicappers

The Mavrik Pro has a 450cc head, less forgiveness and spin and higher emphasis on distance for low handicappers and fast swingers.

Callaway Rogue Driver – First Impressions

At first, the Callaway Rogue has a massive head and sweet spot. The club was actually designed by Boeing so you expect serious aerodynamics with this one.

The Rogue was also very lightweight. The triaxial carbon crown feels airy but the head still feels substantial at impact thanks to the strong perimeter weighting.

The driver has a super thin face but is also variable thickness which adds to the forgiveness of the driver.

Perimeter weighting in the sole and the heel of the club stretches the sweet spot and the Rogue is one driver that does a lot in terms of forgiveness, accuracy and distance.

If you struggle with a slice, the Rogue also comes in a D style which is more offset to reduce errant strikes.

The Sub Zero form is also for those with high swings speeds looking for maximum distance.

The Rogue doesn’t go as far as the Epic Speed, but the forgiveness is comparable.

Callaway Rogue – Who Are They For?

The Callaway Rogue driver would be a good choice for anyone who has grown comfortable with perimeter weighting.

We like the fact that the VFT face design couples nicely with the perimeter weighting. This combo makes for a very comfortable and forgiving driver.

However, the Rogue driver did not play as long as the Epic Speed which is pretty much what we predicted when we started out.

We were getting about 8-9 extra yards from the Epic Speed.

Still, the Rogue’s got it where it counts: good stability from the Jailbreak bars and a decent degree of forgiveness.

Surprisingly, it was also more workable than the Epic Speed

Callaway Rogue Family

The Rogue D Type is for the slicers among us. The is offset, giving the club a draw bias which can work to eliminate your slice.

The Sub Zero, leaves some of the forgiveness behind and it aimed at high swing speeds with good control over the driver, looking to squeeze more distance off the tee.

Distance: 95/100

Accuracy: 94/100

Forgiveness: 93/100

Feel & Control: 91/100
