R11 or diablo edge

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
In my search for a new set ( very high handicapper) i have narrowed it down to the r11 and the callaway diablo edge. I'll be taking a 5 iron of each to the course on tues to check em out but What are your thoughts / opinions ?

I am about a 15 handicapper (I don't actually keep an official one) and I purchased the r11's 3-pw in August, and again in October, but that is a story for another time. I really love them, I was playing Taylormade Burners and I got fitted for these. I think they feel great, and they look really good too, not too overdone like a lot of the Taylormade gear. They are pretty forgiving, not the most forgiving though. I use kbs C-taper shafts in mine. I have absolutely no experience with the Callaways.

Thankyou but from what i have read the r11's are gi and diablo are sgi
The big sole and fat top line on the diablo's is kinda different

The r11's come up in the 500-600 range in the mpf where as the diablo edge comes up in the 950 range.
On a tangent , if something is eated at 600 in 2010 and another clud is rated the same in 2012 would it mean the same thing or a 600 mpf in 2010 or some other yr the same as the mpf in 2012???

Not sure about all the spec stuff, but the Diable Edge's are SGI.  I have played them for the last 2 years and I like them a lot.  They are bulky but I like that.  It gives me confidence when I look down at them because they are larger.  They are very forgiving and I never get my hands stung when hitting them.  Even bad shots feel solid.  I like the weight of them as well.  I have 5-PW for the Diable Edge, I also have a 3H & 4H Diablo Edge.  I don't have any complaints about them.

Thanks i liked the different chunky loom of the diablo edge and felt more solid in my hands as compared to the r11. Will see how they perform

I just got the Diablo Edge Irons 4 - AW this January but I haven't hit them on anything except a simulator. They are a bit on the bulky side but it didn't bother me on the simulator hitting them. I haven't heard anything bad about them and I'm pumped to get them onto a real course as soon as the snow melts. As of right now. I would highly recommend.
