Players who want the distance of a game-improvement iron like the standard Rogue but with a more compact profile and greater overall shot-shaping control will embrace the Rogue Pro. Surprisingly fast ball speed over a large area of the clubface makes it a standout in the category, as does the high level of forgiveness. Those who don’t consider themselves candidates for a better player’s iron still might want to take a close look at this one.
“Distance and ball-speed performance are similar to those of the standard Rogue, but with a mid-trajectory profile and added spin control. Above-average forgiveness for the category targets multiple handicap ranges looking for distance, forgiveness and added control.”
