Callaway Diablo Edge Irons

From Golf Magazine (April 2011)
Category: Max Game-Improvement Irons
We tested: 3-PW with True Temper M10 Flighted steel shaft; 4-AW with Diablo Edge graphite shaft

Key Technologies: A deeper, lower center of gravity provides an effective hitting area that's lower on the face, where most amateurs tend to hit the ball. Features variable face thickness, S2H2, 360° undercut cavity, and modified Tru-Bore hosel design.

OUR TESTERS SAY: One of the top overall performers; testers give it very high marks for distance control and feel.

PROS
PLAYABILITY: Slightly higher flight than average; they seem to produce draws at will; consistent flight on scoring shots, even on off-center hits; strong performers around the green.
ACCURACY/FORGIVENESS: These straight hitters are very good at correcting spin on heel or toe hits; several testers find these to be as easy to hit as any irons they've tried.
DISTANCE CONTROL: Several guys are one-half to one full club longer.
FEEL: Soft but not overly muted; consistent "click" throughout the set.
LOOK: Medium-thick topline and offset inspires confidence; vertical and horizontal white grooves are a useful alignment aid.

CONS
Some don't care for the visible back cavity at address; high flight can be a handicap in windy conditions.

From Golf Magazine (ClubTest, March 2010)

Category: Max Game-Improvement Irons
We tested: 3-PW with Aldila Habanero graphite shaft

Company line: "Our longest stainless steel iron ever, the Diablo Edge offers integrated iron/hybrid set options to optimize performance and preference. Our unique technologies like VFT, S2H2, and a 360-degree undercut channel all contribute to the Diablo Edge's combination of distance and extreme forgiveness."

Our Testers say:
PROS: Highly rated for distance control; a great anti-slice iron; solid distance output, and mis-hits go longer than expected; long irons are easier to hit than some hybrids; the big sole goes through rough easily and gets the ball in the air quickly; at address, the cavity masks the overt game-improvement design.

CONS: Lacks precise feedback throughout the set; testers want better short-game performance; thick topline can be distracting.

From Sports Illustrated Golf+ Equipment Issue (February 8, 2010)
Callaway's longest ever — stainless steel irons.
• Lower, more accessible sweet spot for maximum distance with accuracy.
• Solid sole for smooth turf interaction.
• Set options available with Diablo Edge hybrids for seamless performance.
