Callaway Diablo Octane Driver

Posted

Pros: Easy to hit, lightweight, pretty forgiving, good look

Cons: Odd sound off face

Good driver. I'm a mid handicapper (i think around 12-15) and I find it a pretty easy club to hit. The only issue is that the sound is more tinny and sounds kinda weird seeing as it's a forged composite driver. I'd still recommend it.

Pros: Neutral, sleek, all black head

This driver is the sleeper club of the year.  It is long and forgiving with a pleasant sound. The face is one degree open and just inspires confidence.  This club is often overlooked, but outperforms most.

Pros: Good distance on off-centre hits, great sound, good look

Cons: Not yet sure about the shaft - doesn't feel in sync with my swing, head cover is a fight to get on and off

9.5 deg., stock stiff Project X shaft. Haven't yet played a round with this yet. Took it to the range this morning and I'm not yet sure I'm 'in sync' with the way it swings. I'm used to playing a 10.5 deg. Nike Sumo 2 5900 with a UST Proforce V2 Tour Flight regular shaft, but that thing just 'clanks' like a tin can when struck. Anyway, going to give the Diablo Octane a good try tomorrow and see how it works. If all else fails, I'll re-shaft it with the same UST Proforce V2 Tour Flight regular shaft and give that a go.
Callaway Diablo Octane Driver
Description:

Callaway Diablo Octane Driver The Callaway Diablo Octane Driver is fueled by Forged Composite, which is the lightest, strongest material ever used in golf clubs. The new Diablo Octane Driver features that Forged Composite in the crown, giving it a significant performance advantage over all-titanium drivers. These drivers are configured to deliver unmatched power through superior design, construction and materials. The crown contains 10 million turbostratic carbon fibers that make up 33% of the clubhead, allowing Callaway to precisely control thickness like never before. The result is a clubhead that is lighter but still has an extremely high moment of inertia. This lighter clubhead enables a longer club configuration for faster head speed and ball speed for up to eight additional yards over the Diablo Edge. The chemical milling process selectively removes excess material for precision thickness control across the face and consistently high ball speeds for long distance. Additional Features: Shaft: Project X No offset Grip: Callaway Rubber Composition Crown Construction: Composite Face Construction: Titanium USGA conforming grooves
