Which would you buy if you were me Callaway Diablo Edge or FT I-Brid Irons

3 posts in this topic

I have done some research on both these sets and for the most part they have been very positive but I have seen alot more total reviews on the edge and I believe that is because they are more affordable but I have found both sets for about the same price. That being said I typically shoot in the mid to hi 90's play about once or twice a month. The set I have now are original Big Bertha knock offs that are 14 years old. I'm also looking into new wedges (leaning towards Cleveland CG16's), Fairway woods (TaylorMade R11 or R9), and a putter (Odyssey White Ice 2 ball) so any suggestions in that realm would be appreciated as well. Thanks in advance.

i have the diablo edge irons and love them. being a mid to low 90's golfer myself it is nice to have a club that can give you decent shots on slight mishits. the feel is good and the ball flight is awsome. all that being said take your time and go hit all kinds of sets. find the ones that feel comfortable to you and get fitted! good luck and good shooting.

I did a search on the FT i-brids on this site to see what other people thought of them and stumbled upon this thread. Have you made your decision and bought your clubs yet? I played the FT i-brids twice and shot two of my best rounds ever at two different courses. Translation? These clubs are WAY easier to hit and MUCH longer than my Mizuno MP 33 Blades. I shoot in the 80s and these FT i-brids made me feel (and look) like a Pro. Just remember to take very little divot and concentrate on hitting the ball square (practice this at the driving range to get your feel for distances) and the club does the rest. I don't own these clubs so I have to give them back but I give the FT i-brids my HIGHEST possible rating. Here is a link to shop for them used;

Just in case you haven't bought your clubs yet.

    • My heated driving range is closing
      About 10 years ago I had a heated range go up literally a half mile from my house. It didnt last 2 years so I feel your pain. Luckily theres one about 35 minutes from where I live now that seems to always be busy. They even have a simulator.
    • The Legendary Callaway Great Big Bertha Tungsten Titanium Irons of 1997
      NOSTALGIA: To buy or not to buy?  That IS the Question... I grew up playing golf.  By age 8 I was pretty much an addict.  At the course, rain or shine, every single day after school in the spring and all summer long.  I would often play with older guys, me being the 4th in a foursome as I often went early (dawn ) and by myself.  The course was in walking distance so I could manage it by myself.  Like a lot of beginners and especially juniors, I had junk clubs.  Wilson Junior 1200s to be exact.  No lessons of any kind just a golf book by Ben Hogan and a lot of hard work and discipline on the range.  I was becoming a good junior golfer by age 11. I could break 85 consistently at my home course (and 90 else where).  Once in a while you would get a group of guys that had brand new equipment.  Personalized Staff bags.  Cigars.  Decked out with Ashworth gear and making wagers with one another for me was a lot of money.  In 1997/1998 a lot of the clubs I saw in their bags were Callaway.  The Drivers.  The Irons.  Ping putters.  I think a lot of guys grab the best gear thinking that status is important and the perceived "better" clubs would equate to "better" scores or they would feel "better" about shooting 100.  I started seeing more and more of these $2,000+ sets of irons: the fabled Callaway Great Big Bertha Tungsten Titanium Irons.  If I was really fortunate, my golf skills and attitude would endear me enough to the rest of the group that they would let me hit a couple balls during/after the round after I showed interest in their equipment.  I was hitting my knockoff driver (The Rogue) about 185 yards at the time.  Take out the "Great Big Bertha" and BOOM 210 yards!  My 7 iron was carrying about 125 yards... with the tungsten titanium it was MUCH longer.  Maybe it was the design/technology.  Maybe it was purely psychological.  Maybe it was luck or all of the above.  Whatever it was, I knew immediately that with these magical clubs in my bag I could take my game to the next level.  Sadly, I never could afford the price tag... until now.  These clubs hold a special place in my heart.  These guys were reluctant to play with the skinny 11 year old kid with crap equipment... I didn't fit the mold of a "good" golfer.  They asked the starter if they could play with some one else because I would "slow them down."  They assumed I was a hacker.  And then I proved them wrong.  I beat the pants off these guys and although it made me happy to see them eat their words, I didn't show it.  I was breaking 85 and they were breaking 100... barely.  Seeing that they underestimated me and then befriend me over the course of 18 holes was special.  It taught me a lot about people, perception, life, and reality.  ***Would you purchase a set of clubs for nostalgia alone?  Would these clubs stack up against Callaway X 20 tour irons (what I have in the bag now)???  Have you ever had a similar experience on the course with new equipment?  What is your favorite iron set of the 90s? 2000s?  What were your first set of clubs?***
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Havnt read lsw yet but its on my list. And while I agree thats not ALWAYS the best strategy, I think thats a great piece of advice. I think I know when Im in trouble and I get discouraged thinking its too late to save my score on that hole. Your strategy changes my mind set and gives me more reason to focus on the next shot so I can limit the damage by not making another mistake. Its between the ears as they say! GREAT tip, thanks!
