4. Best fairway woods 2018: Callaway Rogue

Best fairway woods 2018

We’ve seen Callaway’s Jailbreak technology (two titanium bars connecting the crown and sole) introduced into fairway woods for the first time in 2018.

So I was keen to see if it had improved the performance over the Epic fairways which were fantastic.

Firstly, the look at address of the Rogue is almost identical to the Epic with that sumptuous carbon crown.

I have to say I wasn’t wowed by the performance quite as much as I had expected to be. I wouldn’t say they were any longer or hotter of the face that the Epics.

And these don’t fill me with as much confidence when hitting off the deck as some of the others in this list.

But that’s not to say these aren’t right up there with the best fairway woods out there. And I may have had better results with a slightly softer shaft. I was using the Project X Hzrdus Yellow and I know the Black version works better for me.

One thing that always impresses me about Callaway woods is the face – the ball just feels and sounds like it’s absolutely flying off it.

SRP: £269
