Callaway's Rogue Fairway Wood features jailbreak technolgogy and boasts higher launch and lower spin
Jailbreak makes an appearance in a fairway wood for the first time in the Callaway Rogue Fairway wood. Combined with a new ultra-thin and springy carpenter 455 steel face, Face Cup technology, Callaway says this is the most effective speed-boosting package they've ever made.
Callaway's Rogue Sub Zero version boasts all the same Jailbreak, fast-face, composite crown and aero tech, but the sole weight’s moved towards the face. That creates a low and forward CG which lowers spin and maximises distance for fast swing speed players.
A carbon composite crown and glued hosel free up weight in the Rogue Fairway wood, which is repositioned to create an ultra-low CG, high MOI package that makes them easy to launch and extremely versatile. Together, the two most effective speed enhancing technologies they've ever developed make Rogue the most powerful fairways we've ever created.
"The challenge was to make these technologies work together," said Dr. Alan Hocknell. "That technological synergy is what makes Rogue Fairways an engineering marvel, and an absolute powerhouse."
According to Callaway's lab rats it's ultra-easy to launch from the turf, extremely versatile and the total package when it comes to fairways.

Jailbreak performs differently
Jailbreak for fairways and hybrids was a huge design challenge. Impacts on fairways and hybrids tend to be lower on the face, not out of the centre like a driver. Rogue fairways and hybrids launch higher, without adding spin, creating a flatter overall flight.
Higher launch, lower spin
Both Rogue and Rogue Sub Zero fairways offer higher launch angles and reduced spin, but the Sub Zero really stands out for me technically. The centre of gravity is substantially further forward, so it launches higher but doesn't add spin.
Hybrids are different shapes
The standard Rogue shape is a slightly enlarged version of the Apex hybrid. It's low spinning and offers an excellent blend of forgiveness, workability and versatility. Rogue X is unashamedly shaped like a miniature fairway wood; we call it a super-hybrid, dialled in for maximum distance.
More loft options
We listened to insight from our tters and created a larger number of fairway woods. It helps with tting options and e ectively means we have ve 3-wood options all with slightly di erent loft and trajectory characteristics.
No adjustable hosels
We decided the weight saving of not having an adjustable hosel bene ts positioning the CG and, maximising Rogue's MOI for forgiveness. With more weight already positioned low in the hybrid heads there's also no need for carbon crowns either.
