Diablo Forged Irons
Purchased these in the fall of 2011. I went to a very good retailer with an outdoor range/training facility and planned to spend a good amount of time with an open mind for the right set of clubs. I eventually made my way into the Diablo Forged Irons and couldn't believe how incredible they felt and how easily I could create shots. I was totally suprised as I have never really been a fan of Callaway clubs. The price made me put them back a couple times through that afternoon, but as soon as I would swing something else that felt good, I would go back and swing the Callaways again, and they would always feel considerably better. In the end, I made the decision to purchase the Forged Diablos, and had them custom fitted, which I never had done before. I spent the rest of the fall playing with the new irons, and now the spring, and felt compelled to share my experience on Callaways site. My handicap has decreased 3 strokes, and I am playing the best golf of my life. You can always argue that improvement comes from the person, not the tools, but I can honestly say these clubs give me feeling and confidence to actually go and make shots that help me play the game of golf better. I hit the ball farther, my draws are high and under control, and I can hit a slight fade that lands soft. This spring I have now converted to Callaways Razr Fit Driver and 3 Wood, and I even put a Diablo Tour Hybrid in my bag. You could say I have become a Callaway convert. Last week I shot 4 over par on my home course, which is the best 18 holes I have ever played. I have never felt more in control of a whole round of golf. Thank you Callaway for the great technology...it has made me a better and happier golf enthusiast. I am currently trending to a USGA 8 handicap. That is the best result of taking the time to find these fantastic clubs. Don't let the higher price scare you...they are worth every penny.

After the my beloved Callaway Pro series were stolen I was looking for another Pro series. My wife bought me a set of Diablo Forged Irons and WOW!!! From the first hit to the last I fell in love with these clubs! I really couldn't find any real flaws. The only complaint I have is I didn't get them sooner! Great set nice look and large sweet spot... Get a set and enjoy!

workable irons for non-artist
I bought these based on another's comment about having Titleist 981, than X20 and how the Diablo Forged provide the feel and workablility of 981 with the forgiveness on the X20. I had 981 and X20 now I have the Diablo Forged. The aforementioned comments are spot on. These clubs are AWESOME.
The feel is fantastic. you feel the ball on the club face as you cut across the face as you work the ball. These clubs allow you to become a better golfer.

3rd times a charm!
This is the 3rd time I've owned Diablo Forged irons, and all I can say is there is a reason I keep coming back! These are the sweetest feeling, best irons I've ever played. They are literally point and shoot - I am extremely satisfied with the playability even though I have a high handicap. And of course, buying from Callaway Pre-Owned is always a top notch experience! Thanks and Callaway forever!

Great balance between feel and performan
This is a wonderful set of irons. Nice top line and a generous cavity make them attractive and easy to hit. A great combination of forgiveness and feel. The only negitive is the gap between the pitching wedge (45 degrees), gap wedge(51 degrees), and sand wedge (56 degrees) is too great.

EXPECT TO BE IMPRESSED
these irons have all of the characteristics of forged irons, Except, they still have that "forgivness" factor to them. The design, i believe, is flawless. The setup is great,with a low leading edge and thinner topline,however if you like larger heads, you may want to experiment before you buy. Looks, feel, accuracy, Awesome Job Callaway!!!

WOW Callaway gets better!!!
Having used Callaway products since 1996, Last year I bought a set of Mizuno MP62. Absolutley loved the feel and performance. That was untill I demod a Diablo Forged at our clubs demo day. All I can say is WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!I just got part of my set 3 days ago and love them. [...] These clubs are LONG. I am having to adjust. Flew way to many greens today!!!!!!!!!never done that before!!!! They are the best clubs I have ever played. Glad I now have a bag full of Callaway clubs.

What a wonderful set of irons!! Smooth!
Wow, what can I say. I played Titleist AP1's (too bulky and clunky), Taylor Made 09 Burners (cast and bulky in the long irons) last year, and demo'd the MX300's, PING i15's, etc. You name it, and tried them. And of all of them, hands down, the Diablo Forged have been the most consistent, softest and smoothest irons I've ever hit. I have them with PX 6.0 Flighted, and they are wonderful. Just such a tight dispersion, probably the most forgiving forged iron on the market, with super sweet looks. Very inspiring at address, with just the right amount of offset. Callaway will dominate this market!
