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.
