Callaway Diablo Edge Tour – Win With Phil Driver

A couple months back I wrote about the Win With Phil Free Callaway Driver promotion. This was the promotion where, if Phil Mickelson won the 2010 Masters and you either purchased one of the 2010 Callaway driver (Callaway Diablo Edge, Callaway FT-Tour or Callaway FT-iZ) or if you went into Golfsmith and filled out a free entry form, you would receive that driver for free.

Well, as you know, Phil ended up winning the 2010 Masters and everyone’s favorite golf blogger just received his sweet new driver.

In retrospect, I should’ve probably opted for the regular driver not the 9.5 tour. My slice is bad enough without opening the clubface another degree.. But I digress.

From the company..

Callaway Golf Diablo Edge Tour Driver

Designed to give golfers a distance advantage every time you tee it up.

The Diablo Edge and Diablo Edge Tour Drivers offer superior face technology, a higher MOI, a deeper CG, and better aerodynamics — and it all adds up to the longest, most accurate all-titanium drivers Callaway Golf has ever made.

4-piece Fused Titanium

The use of Fused Titanium in a 4-piece modular design produces the most weight efficient all titanium driver we’ve ever created. Each part is precision-formed and accurately fused together, allowing weight to be positioned optimally, delivering distance-enhancing, penetrating ball flight.

Chemically Milled Hyperbolic Face Cup

A chemical reduction process selectively removes unwanted material from the face cup for precision thickness control, resulting in our most consistently high ball speeds ever.

Aerodynamic Body Design

We’ve reduced drag in the downswing for higher impact speeds by using an Aerodynamic Body Design that refines and optimizes all edge transitions. This reduces drag up to 8% versus other 460cc driver heads.

Standard Shape vs. Tour Shape

Callaway Golf Diablo Edge and Diablo Edge Tour Drivers feature two unique shapes, but all the same technology. Both drivers offer a 4-Piece Fused Titanium Design, a Chemically Milled Hyperbolic Face Cup and an Aerodynamic Body Shape for the longest all-titanium driver we have ever developed.

The standard models feature a core Callaway technology (S2H2), which removes weight from the hosel and repositions it in the perimeter of the golf club for more stability. The Tour models have a full-length hosel, less face progression and an optimized center of gravity that provides the look, feel and performance highly skilled golfers demand.

Aldila Habanero Shaft

The high-performance Aldila Habanero Shaft is engineered as the ideal complement to the Diablo Edge Drivers to deliver incredible feel and performance.

I opted for the 9.5 degree Callaway Golf Diablo Edge Tour driver with the Aldila Habanero regular flex shaft which has a low kickpoint, mid torque and weighs 60 grams. The club has a total weight of 319 grams.

My current gamer is the Cleveland Launcher DST Driver and it’s significantly lighter, having a total weight of 292 grams. It’s an awesome club and the lighter weight makes it easier to get the clubface closed on impact.

Initial impressions of the Callaway Golf Diablo Tour Edge driver are fair. As I predicted,  it’s more difficult to square up the clubface at impact so over the past two rounds, I’ve been hitting some slice-rrific shots.. But when you hit it clean, it’ll go forever. The ball flight is pretty low and it rolls for a mile. I hit a recorded 303 yards with this driver, my longest drive ever..

Stay tuned for a full golf club review.

    I am a driver freak, & have played all of Callaway’s drivers in the past 5 years. FT3 Aldila NVS Stiff, FT5 Aldila NV 65s, FT9 Tour 9,5, Aldila VS Proto, FT9 Tour 8,5 Fujikura Z-com 65 s, & finally FT IZ Tour 9,5 Fubuki 63 tour stiff I-MIX & Diablo Edge Tour 9,5 standard Aldila Habanero 60 stiff.
    The IZ is super straight & longer than anyone in my 4 ball, & rolls forever, really good! Infact fantastic, the best fusion driver ever by Callaway.
    HOWEVER the DIABLO EDGE TOUR is off the hook! Carries 270 – 280 & rolls to about 300 -310 all the time, hot ,cold, wet or dry. I have hit them all even other brands & nothing comes close to this beast.
    With this driver in bag i have never layed up on par fives infact 6 & 7 irons is what i use in with this driver. SS 115 mph, launch 13 deg, spin 2200 – 2600 rpm. I do not hit the octane or razr hawk like this!
