I was interested in getting the diablo fairway wood because of the promotion Callaway is offering. Does anyone have experience using or demoing them? Is the neutral a square face or is it open like the driver? I appreciate the feedback.

I personally have always liked Callaway woods. However, I hate the look of the new Diablo drivers and woods. I thought both 'looked' closed in the neutral bias (even though I know in driver is supposed to be .5* open). The woods look really closed to me. They did feel OK to hit, but I just don't think I could ever get over the look of the headshape. A friend of mine hit both at a demo day (outside) and said both had great distance and ball flight. I only hit them on a simulator and only for a few balls because I knew the look was going to prevent me from buying them.

I demoed the 3 wood a few weeks ago. I tried it on the range and, I was able to borrow it for 2 rounds. I thought it was perhaps the easiest 3 wood to get up in the air off the fairway I've ever hit. It performed equally well off the tee.

Now the one I demoed was a draw model. I have not hit the non draw wood, but I intend to do just that tomorrow. I will choose one then, although I doubt I will hit the neutral model any better than I hit the draw. My guess is that I will end up with the draw version.

The wood does appear a bit closed but, this doesn't bother me as it might some. I like the shaft: I can load it easily and the weight works well for me. I am replacing a 16 degree hybrid with this club. While I hit the 16 degree hybrid well, I am hoping for a bit more distance from the Diablo because of the longer shaft. The key element for me with this club is the consistency of good ball strikes I have enjoyed with it. It seems as easy to hit as the hybrid it is replacing, but a little longer off the tee and fairway because of the longer shaft.

In any event, I have really enjoyed getting to know this club.

    • I would say the Ace wins.  Hard to deny them the prize to give it to someone who need 2-3 shots.
    • If you know you are better, just get enjoyment out of beating them 😉 If not, mindfulness is a good way to try to not stay annoyed. 
    • So today I was paired with a couple of annoying golf partners.  I would guess they cost me a few strokes, but we know that’s not possible as only we are responsible for our shots.  But maintains focus with the guys who play only a few times a year can have you lose focus and you can’t wait for the round to end. A few of these guys are in this video, especially Mr. Mood Swing. Enjoy:   
    • First, welcome to the Sand Trap!   Second, in my mind, of course an ace on a par-4 wins!!  Now if you get someone who pitches in for 2 I can see a discussion, he's just as close, but in a case of a tie, the win should go to the guy who did it in fewer shots.  I don't know what a proxy is worth in your group, but he can use it to payoff some of the drinks tab for the ace.
    • How does that work, you fly side by side? I'm still getting the hang of keeping the plane steady. You have to be really gentle with the controller sticks. I think I wore out the batteries stalling, making the controller rumble.
