Callaway RAZR X or Diablo Edge Irons

2 posts in this topic


I am looking for a new set of irons to replace my Cobra S9 II irons.

Narrowed it down to either Callaway's Diablo Edge or RAZR X irons. My handicap last year was 18, but with a new right hip replacement six months ago, I have added some more strokes.

I need some recommendations, especially from anyone who has played one or both of these Callaway irons. Pros and cons of each iron would be greatly appreciated.

While I haven't hit the Razr X irons, I have played the Diablo Edge irons when renting a set of clubs recently.

They were about as opposite as possible from the clubs I am currently playing, and being standard lie and stiff flex I thought they would be pretty inconsistent.  Although I don't enjoy the looks, they clubs performed really well.  They are very forgiving, and the gigantic sole saved a few bad swings from the rough.  More than anything, these were consistently straight and easy to hit.

If you can, I'd try them against the Razr X as well as other irons you like.

    • Do you carry the Rules of Golf with you when you play?
      By mvmac · Posted
      Ok let's get this thread back on topic. Here's a refresher for what the topic is. I do the same thing as @DaveP043, I have a book in my bag. I rarely use it but I like knowing it's there just in case.
    • Wooden tees
      By NJpatbee · Posted
      I will break 3-4 tees with my driver for 18 holes (usually 14 drives).  If I am working on my driver at the range breaking 8-12 tees is not unusual.  I do use the 3 1/4" tees and have a 17.7 HCP so it is easy for me to crack a wooden tee.  I pick up the large bags of 3 1/4" wooden tees at big box stores when I see them and the cost is not an issue - I just need to remember to load up before a range session.
    • Driver: angle of attack, swing path and the bottom of the swing
      By WillIamnl · Posted
      Hi guys,   i'm spending a lot of time thinking about the golf swing with the driver. Very interested to hear your thoughts on: 1)  where does your swing with the driver bottom: a) in the middle of your stance (similar to your swing with irons) b) right before the ball, teed up inside your left foot 2) what is the ideal angle of attack - hitting up on the ball or hitting down on the ball? 3) swing path - do you alter your swing path with your driver vs irons? If you hit up on the ball, wont the natural swing path makes you pull thr shot (heading to the left)? 4) tee height - i think a lot of people are in favor of teeing the ball higher (modelling after Bubba) - this makes sure you hit the ball on the upswing - less spin, more distance) - but again, doesnt the natural path of the swing forces the ball to the left. how does one make the club face square a couple inches after the bottoming of the swing? (I assume that with irons by club face is square at impact, coinciding with the bottom of the swing. interestes to hear your thoughts and experiences on this!   thanks            
    • My Swing (ygmondoux)
      By ygmondoux · Posted
      Played a good round of golf yesterday +5 in a hard 74.3 rating golf course. My driving was amazing, 280+ in cold weather in the fairway: missed 3 fairways and not by much. My second shots were abysmal, 7 greens in regulation. 4 in 4 on par 5, (I'm usually on or near in two strokes.) After the round I practiced my second shots, first time this year on grass... I guess that is the big problem, I don't have the same familiar feedback I get on mat, it feels so different.  I think I could shave a few strokes by practicing on actual grass once in a while.
