Summary:
Just phenomenal! These truly are a very good set of clubs. I have long had a bias towards Callaway, as I have never liked the top lines, never liked the clunky size and never really liked the offset.

That said, these clubs will replace my Wilson Staff FG-59's, which might be one of the best blade forgings around. I have long been a blade player, and this season, after seeing my handicap balloon to about a 4 (3.8) from a 1.5 or so I realized the time has come to make a change to something that might be more forgiving.

I went to my local Golsmith and hit these, and in a word, I has SHOCKED at how nicely they performed. The price was stellar as they wer elightly, and I do mean lightly used....3, 4 and 5 had never been hit. The set I have included the Nippon NS950 Stiff shafts, and those are probably some of the better shafts around.

The flight is a tad higher than I'm used to, but surprisingly, the spin is much, much better and the distance, I have found is almost spot on to what I usually am hitting.

The biggest difference is the forgiveness on mis-hit balls. I rarely catch it on the toe or heel, but I have noticed that when I do, the result is much more liveable than with my traditional blades. Whereas before I might be short, or miss right or left, they now stay on line and the distance isn't that far away from what it should be.

If you're a blade player, looking for a more forgiving club, or a game improvement guy looking to upgrade these are a very nice choice. They're great sticks.

diablo forged

Summary:
just a quick review after a month of use. The clubs have a nice crisp fell not like a mizuno but but very nice. You know when you hit the sweet spot and know when your off. the distance is very good and at least as long as a none forged callaway. the best part is distance control..very consistant and accurate. As I start to push 70 the conbination of forgiveness, feel, accuracy and distant fit my game very nicely.

Customer Service:
