Is the Sub Zero more forgiving than it used to be in prev?

I texted our club pro a bit ago and told him I found a good deal on a rogue head. I was planning on testing the Rogue for sure and possibly the Draw model. However he said to try his and then I asked him if he had the 9 degree head and he said Yes in the sub zero model. 1. He must believe that my ball striking ability has improved enough to have me test this driver since he fit me into the Fusion to begin with and 2. Has Callaway made the Rogue Sub Zero much more forgiving than previous Sub Zero models?

I have never hit a Sub Zero model but from what I've seen its a smaller head compared to all other models in its class which I always assumed this model of club as unforgiving. I currently game a Fusion (very forgiving driver) and with the settings set up right for me I hit the center of the club face very solid right now. Looking forward to putting the Rogue Sub Zero to the same draw setting and seeing if it really is forgiving (forgiving enough) like I have read some places.

    XR subzero was okay. Long drives with okay forgiveness.

    Epic subzero depending on weights was a great mix of distance and forgivness.

    Rogue sounds to be a tad more forgiving then the epic.

    I have a rogue on order from trade in deals from callaway. I played well with Epic this past year but hope for similar numbers with better misshits with the rogue and a different shaft.

    I didn't notice a massive difference in the sub zero rogue vs sub zero epic, but the rogue in general seemed to be a tad more forgiving. Compared to my 2016 M1 it was 8 yards longer in mishits. Unfortunately I had surgery right after the demo day so I didn't order it yet, but have plans to.
