Callaway Golf's Rogue and Rogue Pro irons have been really well received at retail since their introduction, but, now they've been available for about half a year. In the not too distant past, this would mean replacing these standouts with new irons of some kind, or coming out with an update to another line, just to keep things fresh. Eventually, golfers revolted against that kind of thing, and the era of zillions of club launches per year is over.
However, that doesn't mean Callaway can't introduce a variation on the Rogue iron line which could draw in a customer who perhaps wasn't convinced by the initial release.
That's what Callaway is hoping to do with its Rogue Pro Black irons. Available June 8 on their website, the Rogue Pro Black irons feature a black PVD finish on the head, black grips and a special-edition black True Temper XP 10 shaft. Of course, they Rogue Pro irons are still fundamentally the same otherwise, with the 360 Face Cup and variable face thickness for maximum ball speeds across the face. There's the metal-injection-molded internal standing wave for control and idea ball flight, as well the urethane microspheres behind the face for better feel.
The Rogue Pro Black irons will be available in two setups: 5-PW for $825 or 4-AW for $1,100.
