In this article we are going to take a look at two of the most popular irons out there this year, the TaylorMade M6 and the Callaway Rogue irons. Who are they for, who should be looking at them and what will they bring to your game? Read on to find out.

 

TaylorMade M6 Irons

TaylorMade worked really hard to develop some of the fastest irons ever made, they drew on their experience with driver heads to create these irons which go miles! The thin face of the M6 irons with their Speed Pocket and Inverted Cone Technology is mind-blowing.

Overall Score 95/100

Callaway Rogue Irons

On a similar theme, Callaway Rogue irons are the fastest face they have ever made and it can generate ball speed almost as effectively as a driver face. They have added Urethane Microspheres which have added speed and forgiveness to make these an incredible offering.

What Options Do You Get With The Sets?

TaylorMade M6 irons come with KBS Max 85 shaft in stiff and in regular. This shaft is made for playability and exquisite control of the golf ball. It is a smooth feeling shaft that gives the ball a high launch and high spin profile.

In the Callaway Rogues you can get both stiff and regular steel shafts and they come with the TrueTemper XP95 shafts. These shafts are designed for maximum ball speed and minimal dispersion to help you hit it further and straighter than ever.

Who Are Each Set For?

Callaway Rogue Irons 2

These clubs are very similar in terms of their audience. The Callaway Rogue irons gave me better feedback and felt better, this is a personal preference.

Many will prefer the M6 irons for feel more, it is down to personal preference here. The M6 irons go further for those looking for yardage.

Both sets have a fairly thick top-line, this is the nature of this kind of iron.

The Callaway irons have a neater top-line, for these reasons I would say that the Callaway Rogues are for golfers with a handicap of around 12 the TaylorMade M6 irons are for golfers at around 15.

 

How Do They Compare On Composition?

The TaylorMade M6 set is more unconventional on the surface in many senses. The SpeedBridge has changed the acoustics of the club as well as helping to add distance. They also have an insert behind the face, these clubs are certainly a modern/futuristic iron.

On the other hand, the Callaway Rogues are more classic in terms of looks, they do have some stealth tech built-in. The Urethane Microsphere insert definitely adds a pop to these irons and provides the golfer with huge distance. These are a little more under the surface with tech.

 

What About Distance?

When we talk about distance, both of these sets are impressive, however it has to be said that the TaylorMade M6 set edges it. These clubs prioritise distance over all else. Yes, they have worked to improve the sound and the feel of the clubs but these are to go and go far.

The Callaway Rogue clubs have a little more nuance to them and are made to give both distance and enhanced playability. Whilst they won’t go as far as the TaylorMade irons, there are many other benefits here that should grab your attention.

 

How Do They Compare On Forgiveness?

Both of these clubs have high (moment of inertia) MOI figures which translates to impressive forgiveness.

When you mishit these clubs they still go really far and still fly really straight. The inserts in the faces of these clubs are incredible, it is hard to choose between them on this factor.

 

How Do They Compare On Performance And Feel?

Callaway Rogue Irons

On this, the Callaway Rogues take it. Although these are definitely cavity back irons, they have impressive playability.

TaylorMade have made their irons stronger and longer in terms of loft and length, respectively. Callaway have created better balance between length, feel and performance.

 

How Do They Compare On Price?

Neither of these models are the most current products from either brand, this means that you can get them for a great price.

Both of these sets are about the same price and a lot less than similar sets that are more current on the market.

 

Other Sets To Consider?

One of the best sets on the market, around the same age as the Callaway Rogue and TaylorMade M6 is the Titleist AP2.

This is one of the greatest cavity back irons that has ever been made and it should always be onto your “to try” list.

 

Conclusion

If you are looking for irons that will give you incredible distance and won’t break the bank, the Callaway Rogue iron set is absolutely the one for you. These clubs perfectly balance distance, looks and feel. TaylorMade M6 irons are great, but they are just a little too distance-focussed.

As soon as you get the Callaways in your hands you will be won over, your great feelings towards the clubs will only grow as you start to hit a few balls with them. These clubs are just the kind of magnificent engineering you would expect from Callaway!
