Callaway Rogue ST Max driver
Best Callaway Drivers 2022

Callaway have nailed it with this driver. It’s long, forgiving, and looks great behind the ball. The large footprint makes you feel like you can’t miss the sweet spot.

This is perfect for golfers who are looking for the best performance out of the club whilst maintaining forgiveness. This driver is designed to launch the ball high with a slight draw bias making it ideal for the average club player.

Pros:

  • Long
  • Consistent ball speeds across the face
  • Sounds brilliant

Cons:

  • A slight draw bias doesn’t suit all players

Callaway Rogue ST Max D driver
Best Callaway Drivers 2022

The Callaway Rogue ST Max D driver is draw-biased, but subtly in a way that doesn’t shout, ‘I need some help with my slice’, which I like.

The head has a larger profile than the standard Max model which makes you feel like the face is huge and you don’t need a perfect swing to get the ball in play.

This is perfect for golfers who are looking for the best performance out of the club but need help stopping the ball from curving so much offline. It has a great sound and performs well on off-centre strikes.

Pros:

  • Long on centre hits
  • Even the worst strikes had a reasonable outcome
  • The muted sound is brilliant

Cons:

  • A slight draw bias doesn’t suit all players

Callaway Rogue ST Triple Diamond LS driver
Best Callaway Drivers 2022

The Callaway Rogue ST Triple Diamond LS is designed specifically for high club head speed players, and consistent ball strikers. If you’re after distance you are in luck, you can hit exceptionally long balls on a centred strike with this.

However it is not the club if you are looking for more forgiveness or to cure a slice.

Overall a very powerful driver that will leave you satisfied after a good hit.

Pros:

  • Feels powerful on a centred strike
  • Neutral to fade biased to stop hooks
  • Solid in the wind with low spin design

Cons:

  • 450cc head looks intimidating

Callaway Mavrik driver
Best Callaway Drivers 2022

The Mavrik driver has that classic Callaway and looks great behind the ball. It boasts great ball speed on strikes all across the face and still performs very competitively in the distance race.

The ball doesn’t feel like it’s springing off the face as quickly as other Callaway drivers and does spin more, but brilliant for players who are looking to keep the ball in play more with off-centre strikes.

Pros:

  • Sits beautifully behind the ball
  • Has that can’t miss feel off the face
  • Sounds fantastic

Cons:

  • Higher spin is not ideal for a player looking for all-out distance

Callaway Epic Max driver
Best Callaway Drivers 2022

This is part of Callaway’s Epic Flash range. It is a brilliant driver for players who often miss-hit the ball and are looking for some assistance keeping it in play. The Epic Max driver has a large footprint making the head feel massive behind the ball.

PROS

  • Very adjustable
  • Good ball speed from all strike locations
  • Low draw-biased CG makes it easy to hit high and straight

CONS

  • Not the longest Callaway driver available

How do we test drivers?

At National Club Golfer we are passionate about producing accurate and thorough reviews and make sure our testing process is rigorous so we get a good understanding of how each club performs.

Each driver is hit with Pro V1 golf balls to allow us to collect launch monitor data with our in-house TrackMan and Flightscope. After this it is time to head out onto the golf course and test the clubs in practice and competition play. We do this across a variety of golf clubs in our base of Yorkshire.

What is important when buying a new driver?

When buying a new driver it is important to know what you want from that club to help you improve.

Most people are looking for more distance, each driver model is optimised for different things. Depending on your swing and your impact conditions, you may not actually hit the model that is advertised as the longest, the furthest. So if you want more distance it is always worth giving different models a hit before you make a decision.

For most golfers, especially high handicappers, something that is more forgiving is going to yield the best performance. Most forgiving golf drivers have a slightly bigger club head with perimeter weighting for high MOI. They also have a center of gravity that is further back to help players get more height on their shots.

Do you want something that is draw bias? There are so many models out there to help with slice correction, it would be silly not to take a look if you see your ball disappearing into the right trees too often. A closed face and draw bias weighting can get you hitting straighter shots in no time at all.

Don’t forget about the shaft either. Getting the correct shaft can help dial in your spin, launch angle and can also give you some extra distance. Having a club fitting or trying different options with your local pro can really improve the performance of your new driver.

The Best Callaway Drivers 2022: FAQ’s

What is the latest Callaway driver?

The Rogue ST line from Callaway includes all their latest driver models. There are three options available, the Rogue ST Max is the most forgiving model, and has the highest MOI. The Rogue ST Max D is a draw-bias offering aimed at higher handicappers who are looking to tame a slice. Finally, the Rogue ST Triple Diamond LS is Callaway’s low-spin offering for high-swing speed players.

What’s different in the latest Callaway drivers?

The main new technology for 2022 can be seen right on the back of the club head. That pop of gold colour is actually a tungsten speed cartridge.

Best Callaway Drivers 2022

This is a heavy weight which sits low and back in the driver head to increase perimeter weighting. This pulls the centre of gravity back and increases MOI. The result of this is a more forgiving driver and more speed on off-centre hits. The size of this weight varies across all four models to dial in the driver for different players needs.

The Jailbreak Speed Frame has been updated with a new shape to give more stability horizontally across the clubhead. Stiffening the clubhead in this way allows the face to flex more, which creates more ball speed. The new smaller shape is lighter than before, allowing weight to be saved and used elsewhere.

The titanium clubhead and triaxial carbon crown are held together via the new unibody construction. This is a one-piece structure which is much more weight efficient as it doesn’t require welding. This means Callaway can be much more precise with weighting and CoG placement.

Again artificial intelligence has been used to optimise performance, this year Callaway have honed in on spin and launch to the AI process. The result is a lower-spinning driver which also adds forgiveness.

What Callaway drivers do the pros use?

Callaway’s Tour players use a wide variety of their driver offerings. The Rogue ST Triple Diamond LS is one of the favourites on the PGA and DP World Tour which isn’t surprising given the club head speed of these players. Jon Rahm, Guido Migliozzi and Danny Willett all have this model in play.

Some players opt for a club with more forgiveness, Sam Burns has the same Callaway Rogue ST Max driver in play as many club golfers.

There are also some tour players who opt to stay with older models as they like the trusty feel and performance. Kevin Kisner still has a Callaway Great Big Bertha driver in play and Georgia Hall refuses to be parted from her Callaway GBB Epic driver.
