    I’m curious why the rogue drivers don’t have the carbon fiber weave on the sole.

    Maybe because it kept coming loose LOL



    I kid, i love my Epic! No issues yet



    Did Chip say they were going to slow down product releases? I remember asking him if they had considered longer cycles, and if i recall he answered me along the lines of that if anything they had considered shorter cycles but it just wasn't feasible. I do remember specifically him saying they had already started R&D on the new driver before they even released the Epic, and that it was almost impossible to turn a driver in under a year.



    I do not recall them saying they were going to longer cycles, i know i asked about it in the roundtable but don't remember that answer beyond the above which if anything lended me to believe they wished they could turn product even quicker



    Of course, it's possible i was daydreaming about Amanda and missed things

    Supposed to get around 60 here on Friday, but rain all day. I know a few people who are getting out on Thursday.



    I hate getting in the car to go to work and my dash thermometer only shows one number

    I haven’t hit a golf ball in over 3 weeks - a record for me.



    We’ve had some of the coldest temps on record here over the last 30 days.



    I hope to get out later this week.

    I haven't hit a ball in over a month. Not sure when I'll get out again. I am hoping it is soon, but I am not optimistic

    No unfortunately not. This was ordered.

    A year later I still can’t believe they gave me any of what they did.

    I can chime in on this subject.



    We/They are sticking to 18-24 months cycle but that is family cycles.. So there will be new stuff every year. Xr16 replacement = Rogue, Steelheads will be replace with ??, Epic will be replaced eventually with ??, so on and so on.



    Epic irons were a surprised, to please the lower/blades lovers.. Xfroged/APexv MB and the cant stop, won't stop APEX irons as well.. going on 3 season with those babies..(should come to an end this year)



    XR16, Xr, Xr pro, and Xr OS line was replaced with Rogue..



    Md3 replaced with MD4


    I appreciate your response! I understand what they are trying to say with that different family release cycles, but the lines are certainly blurred.



    Released January 2017

    Releasing January 2018

    Both have Jailbreak technology, adjustable hosel, Boeing aerodynamics on the crown, and practically identical low-spin weight placement. Callaway is saying these 2 drivers are part of are entirely different families? I'm reserving final judgment until the full release with technical specifications, but it is not the best look.




    And now we have a picture of the 2018 staff bags on Tour, Rogue-themed, and new 3W.



    ebe5a17c63da5eba963a9dcf9c83df49.jpg



    Did the XR line ever have a staff bag featured on Tour? I know the Epic did all of last year. And now Jailbreak technology is extending to the 3W. It seems more and more like the Rogue is this years premier line, an evolution of the Epic family, 12 months later.

    Don't believe so but the Great Big Bertha did.. They did just released staff bags with blue and white them.. as well as black/white theme but can't recall the XR16 having one.



    Don't forget the hybrids will get the jailbreak too...

    Since Patrick Reed left Callaway I got to thinking: I believe it would behoove Callaway to make us staffers.



    I will represent the senior class of golfers, who will you guys represent?

    It’s certainly not as exciting as Jeff having a kid but my wife and I are very excited for the pup we adopted yesterday. He’s a 1 year old Lab.

    Very cool! Reminds me a lot of ours!



    My sister about 11 years ago rescued a black lab who we also think has a bit of pitbull in her. Only problem is my sister has a tendency of not keeping pets. Currently my mom has the dog and my dad has her old cat. My mom lives next door to me so it's kind of like the family dog now.



    It's pretty much impossible not to love a lab, they are pretty much always happy to see you
