The Callaway's Rogue Sub Zero driver is built for power and distance. A triaxial carbon crown, titanium sole, and the thin face braced by Jailbreak Technology are enhanced by Callaway's ingenious Optifit hosel and a pair of weight ports. Our guide breaks all the adjustable elements down so you can make sure you're getting the most out of your driver.
To open or loosen the shaft screw in your driver, place the wrench (received with your driver) into the top of the screw and turn anti-clockwise. To tighten back up, turn it clockwise. When fully tightened, there's an audible "CLICK" to let you know the sleeve is safely locked in place and to avoid over-tightening.
Before opening the driver, take a look at the markings on the hosel. You'll see, below the stated loft, there's a little line - and at the very bottom here there's another and it's in between these lines that the current setting is displayed.
When the shaft screw is fully open the head can be removed from the shaft. The top and bottom cogs can turn independently of each other and indicate some of the different loft and lie options you can choose. Callaways Opti-Fil hosel allows you to add up to 2-degrees of loft or go 1-degree lower. For each loft, you can select 'N' for neutral or 'D' for a draw. Note, the 'S' on the hosel is related to the loft and stands for stated, setting the driver up at the loft stamped on the head.
The next step is to turn each of the cogs to make a two-piece jigsaw puzzle which displays your desired setting. For example, if you want to hit the driver a little higher and bring up the spin a little, line up '+1' with the line. Then turn the other cog to either 'N' or 'D' depending on how you want to see the ball fly. They'll fit together like a jigsaw, and you can pop the head back on, make sure the lines match and tighten to the 'CLICK'.
As well as hosel adjustability there is a pair of weight ports on the sole with one containing a heavier weight than the other. Using the same adjustment tool, you can swap these over to change the spin and launch characteristics of your driver.
If the heavier weight is in the front, it lowers spin by about 300 rpm. This setting will add a few yards to your drives, but it also makes the club a little less stable. So it suits the better players who centre strike it most of the time.
With the heavier weight in the back, spin and launch angle increase. The driver is now in its most forgiving setting.
Remember, you can adjust your driver on the range or at any time before your round, just not during it!
