Cobra Speedzone Vs. Callaway Rogue Driver Comparison And Review 2021

Adjustability is always a boon to golfers. Whether you are a low handicap player looking for precision shot-shaping or a high handicapper that want’s to be able to correct a miss, it’s always nice to have the option to adjust as needed.

But driver adjustability comes in different forms. Today we are going to be examining two drivers that take different approaches to adjustability.

Cobra Speedzone Driver Overview

The Cobra Speedzone has an adjustable front to back weight which may be able to help you achieve higher ball speeds and get the ball flight you want.

At least, that’s what this driver was doing for us. In the forward position, the adjustable weight significantly reduced spin so we were getting really good distance from the Speedzone. The forward position also produced a lower shot angle.

It’s not all about versatility with this driver though. What we really liked about the Speedzone was the infinity milled face. Almost every part of this face has been milled. It’s super thin and flexes at almost every point.

The milling process gives the face a nice feel too. Overall, we were getting faster ball speeds and distance in general out of the Cobra Speedzone.

Callaway Rogue Driver Overview

On the other side, we have the Callaway Rogue which has an adjustable hosel.

We would say that the adjustable hosel of the Callaway Rogue driver made it the more forgiving of the two – you just have to know how to use it. But it isn’t hard to pick up. On the highest loft setting, it’s much easier to close the face up. On the lowest loft setting, the face is effortlessly opened up.

You can simply adjust as needed. Helping in the forgiveness department is the Variable Face Thickness technology. The face is thinner out towards the perimeter to help generate more flex around the edges. It’s thicker towards the sweet spot to put more power behind dead-center shots.

The Callaway Rogue was the more forgiving of these two drivers but again, we were giving up about 8 yards on average with it compared to the Speedzone.

The Speedzone driver has a really satisfying feel and it was nice to have the option to launch the ball high or keep the trajectory low and fast. On the other hand, the Callaway Rogue would be more congenial for beginners.

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.

Speedzone Driver – First Impressions

“The Cobra Speedzone doesn’t look like much at first, but it will quickly win you over with it’s superior feel and forgiveness.”

On the other end of the spectrum is the Cobra Speedzone which feels light in the hands as soon as you pick it up. We were really impressed from the feel and feedback of this driver.

It provides good forgiveness with perimeter weighting inside the head at the left and right corners of the face and at the rear of the head.

The Speedzone Family

Cobra also makes the Speedzone Xtreme driver which is more forgiving with an oversized face profile.

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.

Who Are The Speedzone Drivers For

The Cobra Speedzone are more for low handicap players with faster swing speeds.

You won’t get much in the way of distance from the Cobra Speedzone driver if you don’t have a good swing speed.

That being said, the Speedzone driver is accurate, generates great ball speed away from the sweet spot and feels amazing at impact

There’s also an adjustable weight that you can move to alter from forward CG to rear CG.

Cobra Speedzone Xtreme Driver

The Cobra Speeedzone Xtreme is a model that is more forgiving and consistent for high handicappers and players who generally struggle off the tee.

It’s got a lot of the same features but with a more pronounced offset to quell any slicing and a lower spin rate to keep the ball flying straighter.

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.

Distance: 95/100

Accuracy: 94/100

Forgiveness: 93/100

Feel & Control: 91/100
