Callaway Rogue ST Max Vs. Callaway Mavrik Irons Comparison Overview

The Callaway Rogue ST Max irons hit shelves this year and players are already taking note that they are picking up right where the old Rogue’s left off. But how do they compare with more recent Callaway iron models?

After we tested the Callaway Rogue ST Max irons to the Callaway Mavrik Max irons, we could tell that they have a lot in common in terms of performance. However, there are some nuanced differences that you should know about before making a decision between these two iron sets.

Callaway Rogue ST Max Irons Overview

The Callaway Rogue ST Max irons occupy a comfortable space between the Pro and other two Callaway Rogue ST Max models.

The first thing to note about the Callaway Rogue ST Max irons is that they have wider soles and top lines than even the Mavrik Max irons – which is really saying a lot. These irons were really made to inspire confidence at point of address.

Like the Mavrik Max’s, the Callaway Rogue ST Max irons have been made with beginners and high handicappers in mind. We liked the fact that the Callaway Rogue ST Max irons launched higher than the Mavrik Max’s; but sometimes launch angles were wild and hard to reign in.

In all, the Callaway Rogue ST Max irons won’t do much to help your short game or in situations where more accuracy is needed. But they will get you down the fairway in a hurry.

Callaway Mavrik Irons Overview

The Callaway Mavrik Max irons feature oversized heads and tungsten weights.

The tungsten weighting is less pronounced in the Mavrik Max irons that it is in the Callaway Rogue ST Max irons however. The Mavrik irons also feature the Flash Face Cup technology but it seemed to us that the Callaway Rogue ST Max irons just did a little more of everything.

The loft is stronger, the launch is higher but surprisingly, distance was almost identical between these two iron sets. The Callaway Mavrik irons will typically be more affordable than the Callaway Rogue ST Max’s so that is also something to consider.

Both of these iron sets are great for beginners and high handicappers. The Callaway Rogue ST Max irons take everything great about the Mavrik’s and kicks them into a higher gear though. So overall, they are the irons we liked more on the course.

Callaway Rogue ST Irons First Impressions

The first thing we noticed about the Callaway Rogue ST irons is that they felt incredibly stable on full swings.

While high handicappers may not fully appreciate that benefit at first, it will certainly spoil them as they get better. The large head sizes of the Max models will be a bit off-putting for lower handicappers; but that is what the Pro line is for.

All of the Max models have a wide sole that you can see from point of address. Again this will look more comforting in the eyes of a beginner or high handicapper. Our testers also noted the near-effortless launch of almost all the irons in the set.

Callaway Mavrik – First Impressions

The Callaway Mavrik Irons look amazing and deliver a ton of distance and accuracy with low dispersion between strikes.

Each Iron is crafted using Artificial Intelligence that ensures the weighting is in the optimal position and that these Irons maximize their potential.

They have 360 Face Cup technology which allows for some flex in the iron face on impact resulting in maximum ball speed and distance.

The clubs have a lot of loft, allowing you to get the ball in the air while Tungsten Weighting, keeps the center of gravity low in these irons and the Urethane Microspheres reduce vibrations on off center hits.

These are excellent Game Improvement irons from 2020 that come at an affordable price.

Who are the Callaway Rogue ST Irons for?

The Callaway Rogue ST irons are mostly for high handicappers. The three different Max models are certainly for beginner to intermediate players while the Pro model would be better for single-digit handicappers.

But don’t get the wrong idea. The three Callaway Rogue ST Max irons aren’t as beginner-friendly when compared to some other irons. Just like we explained when we compared them to the Big Bertha’s, the Callaway Rogue ST irons are just a bit more refined than your average distance/game-improvement irons.

While most of the Callaway Rogue ST iron family is focused on upping the ball speed of high handicap players, the Pro model has a lot to offer more skilled players. Speaking of the different Callaway Rogue ST models…

The Callaway Rogue ST Iron Family

Callaway Rogue ST Max

The Rogue ST Max irons have the heaviest tungsten weight (62 grams) of any other Rogue ST iron. The head is not quite as big as the other Max models so it sits somewhere between the Rogue ST Pro and the other two Rogue ST Max models.

Callaway Rogue ST Max OS

If you need a little bit of draw bias in your irons, the pronounced offset of the Max OS irons will be helpful for you. Compared to the Callaway Rogue ST Max irons, the Max OS’s also have slightly stronger lofts. As a result the Max OS irons are more forgiving out near the toe.

Callaway Rogue ST Max OS Lite

As you can imagine, the Callaway Rogue ST Max OS Lite model is almost identical to the Callaway Rogue ST Max OS model. The key differences are lighter shafts and lighter swing weights.

The Callaway Rogue ST Max OS Lite irons also have the lightest tungsten weights (46 grams in the longest iron) and produce the highest launch angles thanks to an incredibly wide sole.

Launch is also helped with stronger lofts compared to the Callaway Rogue ST Max OS irons and the fact that these irons come standard in only graphite shafts should reiterate the emphasis on light weight and easier swinging.

Callaway Rogue ST Pro

The Callaway Rogue ST Pro irons are the most unique of the bunch. They feature the smallest head sizes and muscle backs. They also have a hollow body design. The spirit of the Rogue irons is still alive even in the Pro models though.

For instance, the Callaway Rogue ST Pro irons feature split weighting in the toe and heel to increase MOI and improve ball speeds on shots away from the sweet spot. So while they offer better spin dynamics, they are still pretty forgiving.

Ball speed is still there in the long irons as well – you’ll just have to be a lot more accurate.

Distance: 95/100
