My rogue st TD (non-LS but lots of hot melt forward which probably makes it like one) is sweating right now. It shouldn’t be, it’s great and I love how it looks, but I’m also still 7 years old inside, loved my EFSZ more than anything, and they’re gonna get me with LZR.

Forged carbon is not woven - looks almost like OSB.  I believe the theory is less adhesives in the prepreg, so less weight.

 

Lamborghini and Toyota are using it for some vehicles - looks like this:

It's basically carbon fiber plywood.

Rogue st was so impressive as a release

 

new 23 Epic has it's work cut out for it I think

 

 

Idk, I got fitted early this year into a Rogue ST Max LS, and the Tungsten Speed Cartridge started rattling within a few months. I haven't even played many rounds this year, so idk how that happened.

EXACTLY. I am an adjustable weight guy but my Rogue ST Max does not need anything adjust to fix any bias. Hit it on the toe, heel, it's still out there. Smoke it in the middle - BOOM.

 

If Callaway can do better, that would be super impressive. Also, I am brand agnostic, I wanted to love the G425 but that is horrendous, Sim 2 was OK but somehow, Callaway has been consistently in the bag ever since Gen 1 Epic (except Mavrik and original Rogue) - like I said, I like my adjustable weights but the Rogue ST line just blew me away.

You need to open it up and check the internal cartridge, it should be wrapped in plastic. Add a little loctite to the screw. Never had an issue in my 2 Rogue ST heads.

Callaway makes a very good driver.  Very good pretty much everything tbh haha.  But their drivers are almost always at the top of my list.

Saw it this morning on Rob's Instagram.

 

Very happy with the choice of the Rogue ST. This looks a bit bubblier like the old bertha's and the lack of matte crown, solidifies my choice for me.

 

Will be interesting to see numbers comparisons between the 2 coming up though!

So this is like a XXIO release?  Game improvement and $$$.  The $450 fairway price is too much.  Interested to see what the other "line" of clubs from Callaway is.

 

I get the tungsten and titanium adds costs.  This release seems like a rush to get Christmas orders, and then release the more "player" clubs in January.

Some classic styling in there with the metallic grey crown paint thats clean on top.

 

Also the face looks fairly deep but also has pseudo-LS shaping from the TD and Max LS lines except a little softer. Interesting face design just from seeing it initially like this.

It's hard to tell in the picture but the color is actually what they call Sage Green w/ gold accents.  Wish it wasn't going to be $700 😞

This is supposed to be an Epic year also, probably in the Spring, probably closer to the PGA Show.

My opinion, this is exactly what this release looks to be- targeting the same market as XXIO.  Ultra light weight clubs, super game improvement profiles, high-end materials (all titanium fairways, LOTS of tungsten in the irons, forged carbon), and big prices tags.  Yep, sounds like XXIO to me.

Wow...the 19 GBB line was basically a budget line - are they using the GBB to replace the Epic Forged line that was expensive and introducing woods into it?

This line of GBB clubs picks up where previous Star offerings left off. Light weight, uber premium materials, the higher price points that come with that, and lots of distance potential for the lower swing speed demographics.

I've only seen the driver in person, and like others I was really impressed by the shaping and other aesthetic attributes. Haven't had time to plug in a driver shaft that fits me, but did hit it a couple times with the stock Helium installed and the sound wasn't overly loud or clanky.

Am really hoping to see a double/triple diamond version of this club like the 815/816 models from a few years back. But I'm not holding my breath on that...

    • In-hand photos of 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 Plus, Stealth 2, Stealth 2 HD drivers + fairways woods
      Check out our front page launch stories here and here. 
       
      What you need to know: For the first time, carbon is the most prevalent material by volume in a TaylorMade driver, and more carbon equals better performance, says the company. Last year, TaylorMade debuted a 60X Carbon Twist Face. With TaylorMade Stealth 2, engineers are bringing carbon to more of the golf club — and unveiling a new-and-improved Carbon Twist Face in the process. Stealth 2 Plus (low spin, most workable) Stealth 2, and Stealth 2 HD (draw bias, high launch, most forgiving) drivers make up the Stealth 2 family.
       
      Stealth 2 


       
      Stealth 2 Plus


       
      Stealth 2 HD



       
      What you need to know: Breakthrough movable weight technologies and versatile designs are the hallmarks of the 2023 TaylorMade Stealth 2 fairway woods. Stealth 2 Plus is branded as “three fairway woods in one” owing to the unique performance characteristics afforded by the 50-gram sole weight. Stealth 2 features a slightly lower profile 3D carbon crown than Stealth. This moves CG down and away from the toe with more weight in the rear of the club for higher launch and MOI. Ultra-high MOI Stealth 2 HD features an oversized 200cc head and low-profile sole, creating an easy-to-hit, draw-biased club.
