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.

The Ping G410 driver is all about custom ball flight. Mid handicappers will love the accuracy.

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.

Ping G410 Driver – First Impressions

The first thing you will notice about the G410 is the amazing feel at impact.

We expect excellent performance from a Ping driver and the G410 doesn’t disappoint.

Tungsten weighting in the head and toe strecth the massive sweet spot for extra forgiveness.

Thanks to the amazing T9S titanium used to build the face of this driver, you get incredible responsiveness, ball speed and feedback.

The Trajectory tuning 2.0 allows you to adjust the loft and lie by a couple of degrees to perfectly optimize the club for your own particular game.

The streamlined, tubulator technology keeps the aerodynamic design that offers maximum swing speeds while the dragon fly technology keeps the stability in the club for even the fastest swingers.

Another point to notice is that the head is slightly smaller than the legal limit of 460cc at 455 cc’s.

While not as long as the Epic Max, it does have a better feel and more acute ball flight control overall.

The G410 Family

The G410 also comes in the SFT version. The SFT has fixed perimeter weighting to increase MOI which offers the best all round performance

The LST is the low spin model which will help to keep the ball flying more straight, more often.

The heel-oriented CG will also help correct your slice better than the standard G410.

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.

Ping G410 – Who Are They For?

 The Ping G410 driver will work best for mid handicappers who make consistent contact but are looking for enhanced workability.

Overall, the Ping G410 driver has a great level of feel with its more compact head. It’s a matter of titanium vs. stainless steel.

The G410 driver rocks a titanium face while other drivers utilize stainless steel. The T9S face of the G410 driver felt better to us but that may just be a matter of opinion.

The customization options, adjustability and thin face offer a ton of performance in all aspects of the game.

Higher handicap and inconsistent players may not be able to get much use out of the G410 with it’s smaller 455cc head.

The Plus version of the G410 has a fixed weight and offers the most balanced performance. Great for those who are consistent with their strikes.

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.
