The new Callaway Big Bertha Diablo Forged irons has produced a lot of talk, and most of it has been high praise.
The new Diablo is a premium forged iron that offers supreme quality and stellar craftsmanship to an already hugely popular model. Designed for the better player seeking playability and performance with a more traditional iron. This iron is already well known for producing increased distance while not compromising control, something all players looking for improvement are seeking.
The Callaway Diablo feature a soft 1020 carbon steel body, a high-strength Carpenter Steel face which is behind the added distance and accuracy. But what sets the Callaway Diablo iron apart from its competitors is the Center of Gravity (CG). A full 40 percent lower and 46 percent deeper CG than the Callaway X forged model affords the Diablo a penetrating ball flight. CG coupled with a “hot” lightweight face allows 23 grams of weight to be moved to the perimeter to counter those dreaded mis-hits.
Actual Player Feedback-
“A crisp sound”
“I was shocked to see they were game-improvement clubs.
The forged clubface provides a nice soft feel even though Carpenter steel is the main component. In addition, having a the great Nippon NS Pro 1100 as the staple and engine of the iron makes the Callaway Diablo an outright winner for 2010.
Callaway R&D is second to none. But a heavy dose of R&D comes a with a higher price tag.
Also, additional shaft offerings might be nice – Nippon is a top-rate iron shaft, one of the best, but it would be nice to have a few more shaft options to a upper scale iron.
Top notch product release from Callaway. The Callaway Diablo Iron forged irons will make its mark this year, 2010. The penetrating ball flight this iron produces coupled with its game-improvement characteristics will be a huge draw for a large golf contingent ready for an iron that will produce unparalled distance and accuracy.
