Overview/Technology-

The new Callaway Diablo Octane has officially arrived with a vengeance replacing the immensely popular 2010 Callaway flagship.  If the new Diablo has any semblance of the older one, we are in for exciting times.   And from all indications, it will be a formidable upgrade and up to the task.

So let’s cover some of the highlights of the new Diablo.  First, the Octane generates more clubhead speed by forming 10 million individual turbostratic carbon fibers.  In fact, the new Octane has generated results to match, adding 8 yards off the tee compared to the Diablo Edge!

In addition to the lighter framework, the Hyperbolic Face Technology produces consistency that is absolutely ridiculous.  High ball speeds fly across the face by using a chemical reduction process.  This isn’t necessarily anything new, but the technology works… pure and simple.
