Aldila Rogue Silver 60 Shaft Review – Specs, Flex, Weight

If you are a fan of the Aldila Rogue Limited Edition shafts but don’t want to shell out hundreds of dollars for them, you need to check out the Aldila Rogue Silver shafts.

The overall feel of the Aldila Rogue Silver is very similar to that of the Limited Edition shafts….but at a much more affordable price.

Today we will be taking a look at the lightest weight class of the Rogue Silver series: the Aldila Rogue Silver 60. Will the Aldila Rogue Silver 60 be the high-end-feeling shaft you’ve been looking for? Let’s find out!

Aldila Rogue Silver 60 Shaft Overview

Something that surprised me when I started reading up on the specs and features of this shaft was that it’s technically a counterbalanced shaft.

The Aldila Rogue Silver 60 features thicker walls near the butt of the shaft, giving it more mass and a higher balance point. Aldila sort of sneaks this design detail into the description for the Aldila Rogue Silver 60 so it’s easy to miss.

It’s also easy to miss the effect it has on the feel of the shaft. To me, the Aldila Rogue Silver 60 didn’t feel like your average counterbalanced shaft. It has a very balanced feel. But based on club head speed, I would say that the high bend point has a palpable effect on performance. The Aldila Rogue Silver 60 has a fairly stiff tip section but the rest of the shaft has a smooth bend that occurs just under the grip section.

Overall, the feel of this shaft is boring – which is another way of saying that it’s consistent. It’s not at all whippy but it lacks the boardy feeling that has turned off some golfers to the Limited Edition versions.

What I found the most intriguing about this shaft was that the kick feels the same on all swings, fast or slow. You can barely feel it load/release no matter how you swing it.

That’s not to say that it doesn’t put any extra oomph behind your swings – again, the launch monitor data confirms this even if the feel doesn’t. What you’re left with is a very stable, boring-feeling shaft that behind the scenes, is really helping you out.

Why is the Aldila Rogue Silver 60 So Popular?

I would contend that the Aldila Rogue Silver 60 is a popular shaft because it has the speed/distance effects of a much lighter, whippy-er shaft but the feel and stability of a heavier shaft. This is a rare combo that would appeal to many types of golfers.

How Does the Aldila Rogue Silver 60 Perform?

I really liked what I was seeing from my launch monitor across the board.

Spin numbers were staying in the 2100-2200 RPM range which is perfect for my semi-aggressive swing tempo. My average carry distance after my test session was over was 263.7 yards. My off-line divergence never exceeded 11 yards. My club head speed and ball speed were a little lower than what I usually produce; but still very good overall.

Launch was the only caveat here. The launch angles were pretty much what I expected from a shaft that is advertised as mid/low launch. Still, 14° is higher than what is optimal for my swing. Again though, still very much in line with the way most golfers would describe mid launch.

Is the Aldila Rogue Silver 60 the longest driver shaft I have ever tested? No. Is it the lowest-launching driver on the market? Surely not. But the Aldila Rogue Silver 60 feels and performs so stably that I would consider these slight drop-offs insignificant.

Aldila Rogue Silver 60 First Impressions

To me, the feel of the Aldila Rogue Silver 60 shaft was similar to the Rogue Limited Edition shafts; but not exactly the same.

The Limited Edition shafts feel much more boardy so the change was actually very welcome.

Key Features & Performance

The Aldila Rogue Silver 60 actually uses prepreg developed by Mitsubishi chemical so you get the same smooth and stable feel typical of Mitsubishi shafts.

Who Should Buy it?

The Aldila Rogue Silver 60 performed nearly perfect for my swing which is moderately fast and aggressive.

I suspect that it would be absolutely perfect for moderate tempo swingers who naturally put a lot of spin on the ball.

At the end of the day, the Aldila Rogue Silver 60 could work well for a wide array of low to mid handicap players. It has a high-end feel that you don’t need to be a pro to take advantage of.
