The Callaway Diablo Edge Irons were released to the golf world in late 2009, and are designed to be game improvement irons that will particularly appeal to mid and higher handicap golfers.
The clubs do feature a similar colour scheme to the Big Bertha Diablo Irons from Callaway, however we feel that these Diablo Edge irons are considerably better looking.
As with most Callaway golf clubs, both graphite and steel shaft options are available to players, with the Diablo Edge irons we tested being fitted with the True Temper M10 Flighted steel shafts.
On the whole the heads on the irons are a decent size, and do set up pretty well at address. Though the larger cavity on the longer irons is there to be seen, but for the vast majority of golfers this isn't really going to be an issue, as performance is obviously what matters most.
And in terms of being easy to hit and forgiving, the Diablo Edge irons certainly deliver. The whole, set, even the longer irons, are very solid through impact, and this results in outstanding forgiveness and very few shots going offline.
In fact it's quite difficult to not hit a shot almost dead straight just about every time. These definitely wont be irons that golfers will be looking to shape their approach shots with, however providing great workability isn't what the clubs were designed for.
As is the case with the majority of game improvement irons, the Callaway Diablo Edge irons generally don't produce a huge amount of spin. However decent strikes off the central area of the club face do still produce quite decent results, so playing to tight pins still needn't be too intimidating.
There is also quite an impressive amount of power in these irons. A lot of golfers are likely to be pleasantly surprised by how much carry they can get from a Diablo Edge iron, not only that but it's pretty effortless power as well.
These really are an excellent offering from Callaway, the Diablo Edge irons are almost as good a set of golf clubs as you're likely to find for the main target group, golf is made just about as easy as is possible to get.
Also the cost of a set of these irons just now is fairly reasonable when you look at the market as a whole. As of 2012, a brand new set of the Callaway Diablo Edge irons will generally be priced at around £490 or $797.
