Meaning that I did less work with the Diablo than with my Driver and yet I drove it longer. Men's and women's versions of the Callaway Diablo Octane driver are available in 9. And I am just as impressed with this club's accuracy. The Octane Tour Model: The Octane Tour is made for those players that have a lower handicap but can be used with good result by mid range handicappers. Hitting the long stick is fun again.
The clubhead of the Diablo Octane is lighter and more efficient than previous models, which helps milk increased clubhead speeds. I also ordered a 5 and a 7 wood and they give me the same great feel and accuracy. I feel that it's important that you know just how much I like the Callaway Diablo Octane driver. Project X Graphite Shaft: The new technology and lighter head allows for a longer shaft and the Project X Graphite Shaft is their longest shaft to date. TaylorMade 2017 Driver-M2 was released in 2017. Feels good in your hands and sounds so good I purchased a new Ping G-20 driver and for 18 months I just couldn't hit it consistently no matter what adjustments I made to my swing.
Jon also liked the look of the crown, although preferred the Tour model at address with the graphic design of the normal version giving way to a super-slick black finish. The ball does not travel as far. I haven't measured its strength or speed. My drives were at least 25 yards further than my average drive with 909D2 had been on home course. The new Diablo Edge and are designed to give golfers a distance advantage every time they tee it up. During both rounds it was bang down the middle and long, hole after hole.
The only difference is with center of gravity which helps if you want to work the ball. I usually play a short 6000 yard course; there is no reason to even carry a driver. Tried the G15 first, higher launch angle but same distance, 910D2 almost exact same as 909D2, Cobra S3 was 5 yards farther but varied off center avg 7 yards more. I would definitely recommend this club for the mid to high handicap, because it is super easy to hit. Virtually overnight, what once was golf's most difficult club to hit the driver quickly became the easiest and most coveted not to mention most marketed club in the bag. That along with the marketing blitz that puts our hopes up, they will sell whatever it is they come up with.
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. Golfers have the opportunity to choose either Standard models designed for playability and distance, or the designed for complete workability and distance. The material features a whopping 500,000 turbostatic carbon fibers per square inch, making it the lightest strongest and most precise composite the company has ever made. 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. It was equally impressive in terms of performance with near-perfect results for Leon and David. Unlike the type of carbon fibers we're used to seeing that are weaved together, the Forged Composite material is actually mechanically liquefied, pressed and bonded together for better shape manipulation and also for greater strength.
Performance: Looks and feel are important, but if you're a distance-glutton, you likely care a lot more about how it performs. Now go swing something new and shiny! The lighter club head has allowed Callaway to place material in different places in the head putting it lower and further away from the face. That driver had some real pop! As we know, a longer shaft can lead to less accurate contact. I tested the Diablo Octane Tour as well as the regular Diablo Octane. I noticed he had also taped up the Diablo Octane which I hadn't hit yet. The Diablo Octane Tour driver keeps the more advanced players happy as it features a head that is slightly smaller than the standard Diablo Octane driver 10cc smaller than the 460cc Diablo Octane, to be exact , as well as a full hosel and a more open appearance at address. The alignment dots on the face looked a bit like runway lights but we liked them and at take-off the ball flew on a reasonably high trajectory.
I must have hit 50 balls, and not a single bad drive. However the dark looks, heavier 70 gram shaft and better sound and feel mark this out as a very good better players club. The alignment dots on the face looked a bit like runway lights but we liked them and at launch the ball flew on a mid to low trajectory and that was with a 10. The Diablo Octane Tour is all black, again with no alignment aid. The driver is available for both right and left handed as well as being available for ladies, regular, senior and stiff. Actually, my first hits with this driver literally blew me away.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Little D from Where did my slice go? Once I catch up, I'm off to my local Edwin Watts. The 46-inch high performance shaft, designed with input from Callaway's Tour pros, also helps to increase swing speed, giving you even more distance. Any alignment aids on a black driver can really help. Everyone of my friends who has tried them wants to buy a set. I average 240 carry with about 25 role. There are dozens of newer golf club drivers on the market. Middle handicap: Our second test was with a golfer that has a handicap of 14.
