Callaway diablo octane


Recommended Posts

I am still gaming a Callaway Diablo Octane 3 wood. It is a great club! I have updated my bag over the last 2 years, and am thinking of replacing my 3 wood with something newer. I had the matching driver, but replaced that with a Ping G410 SFT. I worry that the newer woods won't have the taller face of the Diablo, which I really like. Anyone have a recommendation? Should I replace with a Ping G425 SFT 3 wood? Anything Callaway offers that has the taller face? Thanks in advance for any ideas!!

IMO, 3 woods are interesting clubs as they tend to stay in peoples bags for a long time since newer clubs don't seem to provide much benefit unless the clubs is poorly fit.   Are you just looking for the heck of it or trying to improve performance?    MGS should be starting 3 wood most wanted testing in the next week or so since they are wrapping up hybrids if you want to wait.  I used to see a lot more about face height with 3 woods but that discussion doesn't seem to happen as often.

CNOSIL, I appreciate your reply. I am kinda looking for more performance, as I kind of did the same with my putter. I just wanted to update, as I was playing with a 20 year old putter. Not that it was bad, but just wanted to try something new. Recently updated my entire bag, sans a few clubs that are relevant to me. Have a PING g410 SFT driver, which is great. Spend a lot more time in the fairway with this driver. Possibly get the matching g410 3 wood, or step up to the g425, which is supposed to be better yet. Was looking at Cobra Radspeed fairway, and would like to swing that club on a simulator. So much tech, and need to do my homework. I will take my Diablo to the sim when I am ready to pull the trigger. I will watch for the MGS MOST WANTED Fairway testing...
