Callaway Rogue Vs. Ping G410 Driver Comparison And Review 2021
Having an adjustable hosel on your driver can be a big boon to players who are having trouble opening up or closing the face.
It’s also a benefit to correct your ball flight on certain holes. If you need to create draw or fade bias for a certain hole, it’s always handy to have an adjustable hosel.
To put it simply, drivers with adjustable hosels allow for a high degree of adaptability. They are also a popular choice among high handicappers who are struggling with accuracy from the tee.
Today we are going to be comparing 2 drivers with adjustable hosels.
Callaway Rogue Driver Overview
The Callaway Rogue may be an older driver but it’s still got it where it counts.
The Callaway Rogue driver was one of the first to feature a tweaked Jailbreak bar system.
In the Callaway Rogue, the jailbreak bars were made of titanium and sported an hourglass shape for more lateral stability.
Most of all, this helps keep the weight down and indeed, the Callaway Rogue does swing fast. The adjustable hosel also makes it very easy to square up to the ball at point of impact.
That coupled with the Variable Face Thickness technology help increase the forgiveness of the Callaway Rogue.
What you end up with is a driver that provides a decent amount of distance, forgiveness and workability – however, it doesn’t necessarily hit it out of the park for either of those three performance aspects.
Ping G410 Driver Overview
The Ping G410 features an 8-position adjustable hosel along with a rear sliding weight that moves from heel to toe.
Talk about versatility. The Ping G410 will allow you to shape your shot, correct your bias and achieve pretty much any type of ball flight you want.
We had a blast with this driver just seeing how much draw or fade bias and how high we could get our drives.
The carry distances you get from this driver are pretty impressive.
While we were a little disappointed when we adjusted the hosel for a lower loft to see what kind of ball speed we could get (even at the lowest setting it was still producing considerable spin), this driver impressed in almost every other way.
The Ping G410 was the more versatile driver and with it’s forged titanium face, it even felt better than the Callaway Rogue.
