What we say...
The Callaway Diablo Edge Driver won a silver award in the Today's Golfer 2010 drivers test in issue 269.
David and Leon were both big fans of the new Diablo Edge, especially the extremely powerful feel off the face. In fact the only area David could find to mark it down was the looks, where the slightly-pointed rear cost it half a mark. It was equally impressive in terms of performance with near-perfect results for Leon and David. Leon said it was a "forgiving beast” although he did mark it down considerably for looks because of the head shape and graphics on the sole. Pro Chris was equally impressed, saying he could see and feel a massive difference from the previous Diablo while also carrying it out to the 300- yard mark! He did admit that as a better player the looks put him off a bit but there is a Tour version for players who like a smaller head and a Tour profile. In short, our panel have predicted a successful year for the Diablo Edge!

The Callaway Diablo Edge driver has a four-piece modular design. It also uses a fused titanium head, chemically-milled Hyperbolic Face and better aerodynamics. Callaway has built this driver to give extra distance while maintaining accuracy. This all-titanium driver is aimed at golfers of all abilities and with the striking graphics and competitive price, is sure to appeal to many club golfers.
The Diablo Edge and Diablo Edge Tour Drivers offer superior face technology, a higher MOI, a deeper CG, and better aerodynamics — and it all adds up to the longest, most accurate all-titanium drivers Callaway Golf has ever made.
The use of Fused Titanium in a 4-piece modular design produces the most weight efficient all titanium driver we’ve ever created. Each part is precision-formed and accurately fused together, allowing weight to be positioned optimally, delivering distance-enhancing, penetrating ball flight.
A chemical reduction process selectively removes unwanted material from the face cup for precision thickness control, resulting in our most consistently high ball speeds ever.
With reduced drag in the downswing for higher impact speeds by using an Aerodynamic Body Design that refines and optimizes all edge transitions. This reduces drag up to 8% versus other 460cc driver heads.
Diablo Edge Drivers feature two unique shapes, but all the same technology. Both drivers offer a 4-Piece Fused Titanium Design, a Chemically Milled Hyperbolic Face Cup and an Aerodynamic Body Shape for the longest all-titanium driver we have ever developed. The standard models feature a core Callaway technology (S2H2), which removes weight from the hosel and repositions it in the perimeter of the golf club for more stability. The Tour models have a full-length hosel, less face progression and an optimized center of gravity that provides the look, feel and performance highly skilled golfers demand.
