ANyone tried the irons?

I tried the woods and driver at the demo here last week.

Aside from the fancy watermarked logos and cool colors, fwah The driver looks nice and sleek at address (not for those who prefer the tradition head) and it impacts with a nice conventional "thud".

Very different feel to the FTi's and Callaway hyperX's I tried during the same time.

I tried the neutral non biased, 9.5* R-flex one. Standard shaft Aldila DVS

2009 Golf Digest gold recommendation I recalled.

Don't think the Diablo irons are available here in Singapore; but they look very much like the Legacy irons.

I demo'd the driver; quite good; only thing even the "neutral" looks slightly closed.

Hey will, go test the driver urself at CDANS bukit batok range. There's a pan west there, can look for Daniel or another older malay uncle which is the store manager. Both will give u pretty good advise on Callaway products and they are friendly and knowlegable too. You will be given some balls to test on the range as well

the diablo is closed at address so that might help you with the slice.. i'm thinking of getting a draw biased driver as well as i have to have a very strong grip so as not to slice my r7 limited. any idea if the PW at sembawang allows demos too?

Hi Guys, I am playing with the Diablo driver, if you want to try it out, we can arrange to meet at the range. I am usually at NSRCC or executive range at night.

Go square mate, high MOI maximum forgiveness on off center hits.

The more common ones are either the Nike Dymo or SQ.

Once you get control of your spray then come back to inverted cones for better workability Smile

Hi Will the Diablo that i tried is not bad in term of feel and distance, even the neutral have a closed face so i land my ball on the left most of the time. The only thing that i dislike is the grip, i find it too big for my hand, i am wearing a 23" glove which is quite standard. Maybe it a US spec so the grip is slightly bigger.
