Callaway Diablo Forged Irons

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.
