Callaway Rogue ST Max Vs. Taylormade M4 Irons Comparison Overview
Taylormade and Callaway have become renowned in part for their game-improvement clubs.
It seems like every year they come out with some new innovation that helps more golfers lower their handicaps. Case in point: the Callaway Rogue ST Max and the Taylormade M4 irons.
Irons are notoriously hard to learn but with the Callaway Rogue ST Max and M4 irons, beginners and high handicappers can significantly improve their performance on the fairway. Let’s take a look at how each set can help.
Callaway Rogue ST Max Irons Overview
The Callaway Rogue ST Max irons are the latest offering from Callaway in terms of game-improvement irons.”
They are marked by a new 450 grade steel face that drastically increases stability over the last Rogue class. The Callaway Rogue ST Max irons in particular have pronounced offset, strong loft and wide soles to promote optimal launch angles and a high degree of forgiveness.
We tested these irons and we can attest to their ease of use. The sweet spot is expansive and flexes to a high degree so more players will be able to generate good ball speed. While the Callaway Rogue ST Max irons aren’t very accurate around the pin, they help out in the rough.
The wide sole helps to cut through tough turf and allow even novice players to launch the ball high in the air.
Taylormade M4 Irons Overview
Taylormade M4 irons are no secret. They have been around for a while and have helped many a newbie golfer.
The Taylormade M4 irons are your traditional cavity back irons. As such, they generate a high level of MOI or energy transference. That means that more of the energy form your swing is transferred to the actual ball.
It also increases forgiveness. The cavity back design allows the swing energy to essentially spread out to more areas of the face. Overall, the M4 irons weren’t as long as the Callaway Rogue ST Max’s; but forgiveness was on par with them.
More importantly though, we noticed better spin control in the Taylormade M4 irons so if you are working on your short game, these irons will be more helpful.
We would say that the Callaway Rogue ST Max irons would be better for pure beginners while the Taylormade M4 irons would be better for players on the cusp of single-digit handicaps.
