Callaway's Diablo Edge hybrid (standard) model

Already, it seems, Callaway Golf is inferring that its widely-heralded range of Big Bertha Diablo fairway woods launched last year have been rendered almost obsolete by the new Diablo Edge woods.

In its latest releases, ahead of their launch at next week's PGA Merchandise trade show in Orlando, Callaway is claiming 'distance gains of between of between 10-12 yards and ball speed increases of 3mph,' compared to the ’09 models.

'The new lower-profile Diablo Edge range of fairway woods give all golfers the opportunity of hitting the ball longer, straighter and easier, more often,' says the Chessington-based company. 'These woods have a much larger head and increased discretionary weighting, which has helped create the highest moment of inertia and deepest centre of gravity ever in a Callaway fairway wood.'

Callaway Golf staff professionals including Stuart Appleby, Graeme McDowell, and Thomas Bjorn have helped in the development of the Diablo Edge fairway metals with a low centre of gravity and more penetrating trajectory. Expect to pay around £169 for either the Diablo Edge FW or Diablo Edge FW Tour model.

The Diablo Edge hybrids - both standard and Tour models  have have been designed with a thin crown and Variable Face Thickness (VFT) technology to save weight and make a large sole to help deliver consistently straighter shots.

The standard model has an offset hosel and a low, deep centre of gravity to provide a high launch, while the Diablo Edge Hybrid Tour model has less offset hosel low forward forward CG for a more penetrating ball flight and to make easier to work the ball in flight. Price is expected to be £139.
