Is it okay to choose parallel imports at a low price !? Differences between US and Japanese models of “Stealth” and “Rogue ST” –e! Golf

Head speed and power are different between Japanese and Americans. So, once I bought a US model as a parallel import, the genuine shaft was about 10 grams heavier. Also, the head of the Japanese model was a little lighter.

In addition, there were many series with different coloring. For example, Callaway’s first “X-HOT” released in 2013, while the Japanese model had a black head, the US model was silver, the logo color was gold in Japan, and the United States was different from red. It was made into.

However, these days, the difference is getting smaller and smaller. The tailor-made “Stealth Series” is a big hit in Japan this year, but the heads of all three types, “Stealth”, “Stealth Plus” and “Stealth HD”, are exactly the same for both US and Japanese models. The only difference is that the US model “Stealth Plus” has a lineup of 8 degrees loft.

In addition, Callaway’s “Rogue ST Series” has the same heads for “Rogue ST MAX”, “Rogue ST MAX D” and “Rogue ST MAX LS” in the United States and Japan. “Rogue ST MAX FAST” was released only in Japan, so it was not released in the United States.

Next is the shaft. Both the “Stealth Series” and the “Rogue ST Series” used different shafts for the Japanese model and the US model.

First of all, the genuine shaft of the Japanese model is “Tensei RED TM50”, while the US model is “Ventus RED TM50”. However, the weight band is almost the same. Comparing the weight with S-Flex, “Tensei RED TM50” weighs 57 grams, while “Ventus RED TM50” weighs 55 grams. As for the feeling of shaking, I felt that the US model “Ventus RED TM50” was harder.

As for “Rogue ST MAX”, the Japanese model “Ventus 5 for Callaway” weighs 52 grams, while the US model “Tensei AV Blue 55” weighs 55 grams, which is almost the same weight. However, I still feel that the US model has the same flex.

By the way, paying attention to the length of the shaft, the “Stealth series” is 45.75 inches for both the US model and the Japanese model, but the “Rogue ST series” is 45.75 inches for the US model and 45.5 inches for the Japanese model. It can be said that this is a specification that matches the height and physique of the Japanese.

Finally the price. In the past, many people bought parallel import models because they were cheap, but recently the prices haven’t changed that much. For example, if you look up the market price of “Rogue ST MAX”, the Japanese model starts from about 70,000 yen on a mail order site of a major retailer. On the other hand, the online shop that sells the same model of parallel imports starts from about 60,000 yen. There is a difference of about 10,000 yen, but in the past, due to the appreciation of the yen, parallel imports were thought to be about 20 to 30% cheaper than domestic products, but the price difference is no longer that much.

The weight of the club is no longer as different as it used to be, but the hardness of the shaft is slightly different. It may be good for people who feel that the genuine shaft of the Japanese model is soft.

There is also a golfer’s psychology that he longs for an American model and wants to use something different from other people. For such people, we recommend that you drop the shaft by one flex and purchase the US model.
