We were impressed by the Big Bertha Diablo irons when they were launched so we were keen to get our hands on the new Callaway Diablo Edge irons.
We like the styling and the graphics and our only quibble with the appearance of the Diablo Edge irons is that the short irons can look a little chunky and the large cavity in the longer irons is visible at address.
This has also been a problem in the Big Bertha irons but it is only a small complaint and it doesn't affect performance and we can see real performance gains in the updates made to the club head to match amateur players games.
The performance of the Callaway Big Bertha Diablo Edge Irons is excellent and you can really feel the extra power generated by the slightly stronger lofts.
With the sweet spot lowered it takes little effort to get the ball and airborne and we’re really impressed that all Callaway’s research into amateur golfers makes such a big difference to the performance.
We were similarly impressed by both the standard and tour versions of the Diablo Edge hybrid but we’d certainly recommend that better golfers persevere with the longer irons. Even the 2 iron is wonderfully forgiving with the advantage of a lower ball flight compared to the hybrid equivalent.

Callaway Diablo Edge Irons - Product Details
After much research into my first set of brand new irons these were always top of my list. First off, the design of the head is modern and looks good but the overall club still retains the traditional look that I wanted.
My local club let me hit the 5 & 7 Irons at the range and after a few initial dodgy shots I got a feel for them and was hitting long, high and straights shots time after time.
Being fairly new to the game the 'chunky' look and feel of the heads on each club is a great confidence boost therefore making solid contact with the ball is one less thing to worry about.
For a mid/high handicapper I think these clubs are perfect for the price and having the great Callaway name in your bag is always nice.
