Aldila Rogue: The Must Have Shaft for 2015?


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I took the Rogue Silver 110 out in the Alpha Black Diamond today. The weather was not ideal, 30ish and windy, but I was very pleased with the performance. I was able to control the trajectory very well and the ball seemed to cut through the wind and stay on line. It is also smoother feeling than previous Aldila shafts, I have always thought that they had a dull, boardy feel but the Rogue was smooth and seemed to really snap through impact.

I actually think the Phenom wasn't that great as far as Aldila's shafts go. The Rogue, which I've now tried in 3 heads, works well and IMO is an update to one of their more classic shafts. The original RIP was, to me, the best in that shaft family. But the Rogue has a chance to be as epic as the NV, IMO.

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

Writing about how much I love my hybrid with the old green NV in the other post makes me think I should get one for the driver...
