PXG 0811 Vs. Callaway Rogue Driver Comparison Overview
The journey to a lower handicap starts at the tee. If the driver you have in your bag is suited to the specific needs of your game, you will be fighting an uphill battle for the rest of your round. That’s why it pays to do your fair share of research when it comes time to shop for a new driver.
To that end, we have tested a couple of drivers ourselves and compared them on some key performance parameters. Find out what we discovered when we tested the PXG 0811 against the Callaway Rogue driver in the following article.
PXG 0811 Driver Overview
The PXG 0811 is an almost infinitely adjustable driver that will surely benefit a wide variety of players.
That’s because the original PXG 0811 driver has 16 – yes we said 16 – adjustable weights made of both tungsten and titanium. Almost all the testers in our party used a different weight configuration and everyone was pleased with the results.
The max distance that our testers were able to get out of this driver was 287 yards. While the PXG 0811 driver doesn’t have the nicest feel when compared to other premium drivers we have tested, it certainly provides the most launch options as it is also fitted with an adjustable hosel.
The original PXG 0811 family also includes the 0811X which has the lowest spin rates of the bunch, the 0811LX which produces low, piercing shot trajectories and the 0811XF which is by far the most forgiving 0811 driver in the line.
Callaway Rogue Driver Overview
The Callaway Rogue driver may have been succeeded by subsequent models but it’s features make it a worthwhile driver to this day.
The Callaway Rogue driver’s best asset is that it is very comfortable to swing no matter what your swing speed is. The triaxial carbon crown keeps the weight down while the enhanced leading edge helps pull your swing down where it needs to be.
The large head of the Rogue driver will also be very congenial to high handicap players who are having trouble squaring up. The Rogue also sports a VFT face which allows more weight to be placed around the perimeter of the face to promote forgiveness.
The Rogue was producing a bit more spin off the tee than the PXG 0811 but distances were still comparable (in the low 280’s). Overall, we would say that the Callaway Rogue driver was more forgiving on mis-hits than the PXG 0811 driver.
The PXG 0811 driver allowed all the testers in our party to tune their drives to their liking while the Callaway Rogue drivers was more beneficial due to it’s enhanced forgiveness features.
