Rated 4 out of 5 by SteveO nice clubs, swing easy
I replaced a 1990's set of Lynx Black Cats. Im a upper 80's shooter but I shoot in 70's maybe twice a season. I now swing easier and I have gained about 10yds per club. I used to hit my 7iron 155yds. The thicker soles took a minute to get used to, especially with half swings, but they glide as opposed to digging. My only complaint is that the steel faces scratch easily when I use a brush. I was leery of the "uniflex" shafts (my lynx were s300 stiff), but the slightly extra flex allows me to feel the swing. And when I put the club in the slot correctly that bend feels really nice!! BTW.. I also bought the 2-iron hybrid Diablo Edge reg flex, as my set does not have a 3-iron. Thats a nice club... I get a high 200yrd carry

Rated 4 out of 5 by What Do You Mean I Cant Play For Free Good solid irons
Bought these clubs to replace my Ping ISI's after a 8 year break from Golf. I wanted to try a Callaway iron set after seeing so many great reviews on them. I went to Dick's seeing they had the largest selection of Callaway clubs around my area. I hit most of the Callaway line including the X-22, X-20, X-24 Hot, Razor X, and Diablo edge. Also hit some other brands too. The Diablo Edge and the Razor X stood out the most. If money is not an issue i would recomend the Razors first. The Diablo edges felt good and the price is excellent for what your getting. Now for the on course test. First impression...These clubs are long. I had to drop 1 to 1.5 clubs down. Ball flight is high and easy with good spin to stick the greens. I found the sweet spot large and forgiving. You realy have to botch you swing to hit the ball bad. Most golfers will appreciate these clubs. Address is good even with a larger top line. Only low handicapers will find these clubs restrictive. Quality of construction was top notch. Now for the bad, at least for me anyway. I would like to have seen better grips. The grips are ok but Callaway could do better. And finally, I found the clubs to be a little clunky. I would have to say its probably the shafts. My Pings had ZZ-65 shafts with Cushion inserst so maybe that why they feel quite different. I would recomend these irons for anyone from an 8 handicap or above looking to shave of some strokes with clubs that are consistant and easy to hit. Low handicapers will find the clubs a little restrictive with some loss of playability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Corey W. Amazing!!!
I recently upgraded from a set of 1998 Ping Zing 2 irons and I couldn't be happier. I hit every club in the store before I made my decision. These clubs out-hit every other club I tried. Don't take my word for it, go in and swing everything and see what works for you. I wouldn't trade my Diablo's for anything else on the market right now.
