    I wish they would bring back the sliding weight in the back... I love my Rogue however the moveable weight from left to right just takes it up a notch.




    it has a sliding weight.
    i hope the sub zero comes with a sliding weight as well




    It does:)

    Also heard $529.99, Regular and Sub Zero. None of the Rogue drivers worked better than my Epic Sub Zero for me, so I'm curious how these will perform.

    Unless you hear “Gordon’s alive” in Brian Blessed’s voice whenever you hit it, I’ll be very disappointed.




    That’s a reference that clearly buzzed a lot of towers on here.

    The Power Pod!!! I still have my grandfather's driver on my wall.



    This driver was so far ahead of the game, a guy at our club purchased 15 at the same time. Said he never wanted to be without one!

    And people thought Photo Blue and Volt were offensive and hideous...



    That might be the worst looking driver I've seen.



    Still trying to ride the jailbreak train through at least one more release before they have to "pioneer" something else to sell drivers lol.

    I can't wait to hear how they are going to market this. Guy at my local shop said he hit one the rep brought by. He said the rep was really playing up the fact that this driver was designed with the help of Ai technology.

    In my world there are 2 colors that absolutely do not go with yellow and that is Red and Green! It would have to blow everything away by a wide margin to justify being bought and sent to continental golf.

    Just wait until next year, when the Rogue Flash comes out in the blue and black color scheme. It will look better and perform the same, lol. I can't decide if this is uglier than the Cobra f9 or not.

    Wow. I actually hit that thing. I think it came out mid, late 80s. I remember we joked it looked like a Beetle tail light.

    Agree. When you bump the saturation down a bit and take out a touch of blue, the picture looks more normal.

    Put the Wilson Cortex next to this new epic flash and people won't be complaining about the $499 price tag of the Wilson. The original epic Sub zero was fire, this is a ****. Won't be trading my epic in any time soon. All clubs are exactly the same performance wise now just look and sound different. Stop thinking yellow paint and a sliding weight are going to stop you from taking a divot with your driver and increase your carry by 30 yards.

    Absolutely not true. If every golfer hit every drive out of the exact center, then sure, I might buy the argument that driver performance is maxed out based on CT limits. But that's not even close to reality, not even for tour pros. There are still plenty of improvements to be had with drivers, most notably pushing to the CT limit across more of the face as all companies are doing.

    I agree, there is more yards to squeeze out.

    Not even close to true. Rogue has inclreased ball speed on off center hits compared to your epic. Fact. Not opinion. I tested both on track man for 2 days when I was fit for my rogue. I’ve hit the flash and it’s faster farther out still. Wait till you see how the face of this driver works and is designed from the back.

    I’m way interested in the Flash face tech. Looking forward to finding out more.



    Is there a point at which a player wouldn’t want more speed off-center?
