Callaway Diablo Forged Irons


From Golf Magazine (ClubTest, March 2010)

Category: Game-Improvement Irons
We tested: 3-, 6-, 8-iron with Callaway Golf
graphite shaft

Company line: “This club produces more
distance than other forgings due to its thin,
energy-efficient face, an undercut cavity that
improves head stability on off-center impact,
and a lower, deeper CG for penetrating
trajectory. The forged steel body and welded
face provide soft, responsive feedback. The
face is 25-percent lighter than in the X-22
and has 23 grams more in the perimeter.”

Our Testers say:
PROS: High, soft trajectory with 8- and 6-irons;
just enough workability to move the ball
gently left or right; distance control is a plus;
good accuracy, a bit of built-in forgiveness;
well-balanced iron facilitates smooth swings;
clubhead momentum is beneficial in rough;
combination of graphite shaft and forged
head gives smooth impact feel.

CONS: Mixed findings for feel, several
testers prefer more feedback than they
experienced with forged head/graphite
shaft combo; 3-, 6- and 8-irons were the only
clubs available at the time of testing; many
guys want more help with off-center hits.

$999, steel; $1,199, graphite
