New to the forum and new to golf -just started a 14wk Instructional Golf League, very excited! I have an old set of Tommy Armour 845u, and am looking to upgrade by buying a set off of http://www.callawaygolfpreowned.com/
I was set on getting the Diablo Edge Irons as they are well rated and reviewed in the Super Forgiveness category by golf.com and golfdigest. The only thing I didn't love was the look of them -but feel that "confidence" aside, the looks probably aren't as important as the rest. The website has now added the Razr X HL irons to the site, and being new they are a couple hundred more -but still a great deal compared to retail. I also like the new look a lot more. So I started looking into other differences between the two.
Callaway no longer makes the Diablo Edge irons, but now pushes the RAZR X HL as the choice for Super Forgiveness. They clubs appear to be identical, club for club, as far as length, weight and lie, and have the same Callaway selling features.
The only glaring difference that I could see, was that the Diablo Edge irons have a low bounce angle, and the RAZR X HL irons have a high bounce angle of more than double in some cases.
Any thoughts on why Callaway's old forgiveness irons (2010/2011 Hotlist) have a low bounce and their new forgiveness irons (2012 Hotlist) have a high bounce? Which is more desirable for a beginner? I couldn't find anything from Callaway that explained the change in design. -And now I'm worried about getting the wrong set for my needs.
SIDENOTE: Anybody else feel bad for Furyk yesterday? That was hard to watch.
