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.
