Callaway Diablo Edge Irons – A Good Beginner Iron Set

The Diablo Edge irons are engineered for distance and accuracy. Designed with a lower, deeper center of gravity, the Callaway Diablo Edge Iron features a more accessible sweet spot that is in line with where most amateurs commonly hit the ball on the clubface. The result is longer, consistent distance and improved accuracy. The Solid Impact Sole delivers smooth turf interaction and is designed to mitigate the effects of heavy and thin shots. It also improves the impact location on the face for greater distance.

The irons have strong, sharp lines that draw you right in. Most will either love or hate the looks, and I am one that really loves the way they look quite a bit. The splashes of deep red sparkle in the sun as the bag is on the course and the tiny little Callaway golf diablo edge irons emblems in the cavity add to the depth even more. The sole is slightly thick, but no more than most game improvement (GI) irons and has a large number for identifying purposes on it. The topline of the club matches that of the sole and has a sandblasted type of look to it that works well in keeping the sun from producing blinding light off of the chrome.

The hybrids match the set so perfectly it was as if the marriage was there from the beginning. The sole of the golf club has the same large numbers and sharp lines as the cavity in the iron. It is filled with the deep red color that will make it “pop” in the sun. The crown of the hybrid is two tone, with the face being a different color and coming up on the top of the club. The overall shape is definitely more hybrid than fairway wood and we were glad that they went that way in the overall design process. Though, it comes down to personal preference of course. The headcover of the hybrid is more old school, than new school and will get polarizing opinions. Im not a huge fan of it overall, but that is more about the style than the look. Overall, myself and the rest of the testers really liked the look of the set quite a bit and they begged to be taken to the course.

The big question we will find with this iron set is can the ball be “worked” right and left. The short answer is yes, and without much a problem. Like most GI irons, they are built to go high and straight, and the Callaway Diablo Edge irons did that better than most. But playing a cut or a small draw did not seem to be much a problem either. The offset that the irons have, especially in the 5 & 6 iron made it slightly harder to pull off, but in the end, these clubs are built to go straight and they do it well.

Callaway has a set in the Callaway Diablo Edge Irons that is absolutely fantastic on many levels. Distance and accuracy is what can help drive scoring and if you struggle with one or the other, this set should be on your short list. The irons offer an excellent feel for a GI iron and provide flat out amazing forgiveness. The hybrids offer great distance and solid forgiveness as well. After testing these out for the last month, I am thoroughly convinced that this set will help quite a bit of golfers take their game to the next level.
