First, here is my make up.
I am thinking of replacing the Bertha irons with Rogue. Some questions:
Look forward to your thoughts
@kmergens best advice anyone could give is get fitted. You have to see what your distance is going to be with each choice to make sure you have proper gapping. Not sure how they feel compared to the big bertha irons , they feel a little softer then xr steelheads pro irons not sure if that helps you. I had the same problem with my epic irons ended up getting a md3 wedge fitted for my 100 yard club because my aw was 110 to 115 couldn't get down to 100 yards without changing my swing
i absolutely think a fitting would help...HOWEVER, a fitting will not answer all of @kmergens questions.
Unless he goes to the ECPC, I really doubt the fitter will have full sets of Rogue and Rogue X so it will be hard to tell the gapping between the 9 and PW.
That has always been a sticking point for me on where to split sets if you are doing a combo. As hot as the X sounds, an X PW might just go as far as a Rogue 9. Without full sets to test I'm not sure how you will ever know for sure.
Here is my 2 cents:
Rogue irons will feel softer than BBOS because of the urethane with microspheres inside the cavity. Exactly how much will be a personal thing, but it is noticeable.
I would suggest to stick with a single set of irons instead of piecing 2-3 sets together. As for gapping, you could go with either Rogue or Rogue X. If you go with Rogue X, you will want both the PW and AW (and potentially even GW). Although it's not quite as simple as this, you can think of each rogue X iron and a full club longer than its Rogue counterpart, and to make up for that big gap, there is a GW and AW that are different lofts.
Most importantly, go get fit! Then you will have your gaps dialed without guessing!
@kmergens here what I would say and based on the following.
1) you like the current loft set up in the irons
2) you like the way the BB's play
3) you want a more traditional looking iron
I would suggest the Rogue womens irons.,,, now hear me out.
The RW has the same loft spec, has a bit larger blade length to be as friendly as the BB and,,
doesnt have a marking of a womens club and it looks pretty darn good.
Have a stock men shaft put in the head and voila. I would also consider going to the AW in the set.
Finally, I would also consider the MD4s. If wider sole is the need then the "W" grind is made for the finishing part of the set. The loft options are well within the needs.
Just my thought
