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.

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.

    • I'm in a hotel in HK at 1:08am doing practice swings with the chair drill and a metronome just to get my tempo dialed in a bit. I should probably get some sleep for my early flight and factory visit right after lunch, but I can't fall asleep. . .
    • I don't think I've ever in my life been distracted by where someone was standing on the putting green.  I don't even have any distinct memories of knowing where anyone was standing while I was putting. I would probably object to someone waving their hand between my face and ball or peeing on my foot or something.
    • Welcome to TST! Good to hear you have the chance to increase your golf play. As for your clubs... Cobra F6 irons ended up in the Game Improvement category; given how far you hit the ball you should be OK with them. F6 reviews noted the irons have slightly different head designs up and down the line, to meet the demands of long irons vs. short irons. Cobra drivers and long clubs have a good reputation. I especially liked their FlyZ driver from a couple of years back, one of my top three favorites at the time. I play a FlyZ 4 hybrid, it's usually my go-to club for longer approaches and tight tee shots on evil short par 4s. Be aware that the Cobra long clubs have slightly heavier shafts than average; so if you're on the line between one flex and another, probably go with the gentler flex. But, test this out on the launch monitor and find out for sure. Note: Pick up a sand wedge if possible; doesn't have to be new, just decent grooves. As for winter lessons: if you can find an indoor lesson place with a good pro, you can get a jump on next year. Although hitting off of mats is not ideal, it's better than nothing. You can sense if the shot was a little fat on contact. If a golf shop is deserted on a winter's day, sometimes you can rent a half hour on the launch monitor and hit some balls. The shop can give you an idea of when hitting stall dead time will be. Where in Pennsylvania do you live? The head TST guy Erik operates out of Erie.
    • I'm not easily distracted and don't really care what people are doing while I am putting, but if I did I would prefer they be 30' back.  I don't understand people who get distracted by where people are standing, but I respect it and do my best not to let my lack of concern for these things effect them.   I was once standing around 20' or so behind someone who was lining up to a putt.  He took a few practice strokes and then stopped and angrily waved me to move.  (I didn't know him at all).  I don't see how I could have been in his line of site, but I said a simple "I'm sorry" and stayed far away from him any time it was his turn going forward.
    • Virtually nothing distracts me on the course. That gets me in trouble occasion, however. I forget that other people can, and do, get distracted, and I find myself doing somehting I shouldn't be doing while they're hitting (generally on the tee).  That being said, I could not care any less where they stand, as long as it isn't between me and the hole. ;)
