December 28, 2013
I played with my new driver 2 days ago for the first time. I played with my regular partner. we have played together for years and normally drive the ball side by side. To both of our amazement I drove it 30 yards ask him on the first hole and that continued for most of the day. I was amazed at how far and straight I was able to drive the ball the first time I used the club.II am anxious to get back to the course to play again. I find the club extremely easy to hit and very forgiving on off center hits..after some more work with this driver, hopefully I can get my handicap back down to 3 or 4 where it belongs.
Prosanywhere from 20 to 30 yards longer then my old Nike driver. I guess I'll put the Nike behind the door in case somebody tries to break in my house.
Consthe only con is that I did not find this driver earlier so that I could have played with it before now!

Long and straight...feels good at address
December 18, 2013
I have loved this driver from about the 4th or 5th swing of it (to get used to) and now after playing a full season with it. It feels nice at address, I have fewer miss-hits, and I have driven the green on par 4's (two or three times last season). I too don't like that sticker on the face that leaves a residue, but, that's the only negative! You need a new driver and have always stayed away from oversized drivers? This one is comfy at address!..Now here's one to try...and love playing!
ProsGreat club, feels comfortable at address, swing with confidence, fewer miss-hits, great distance, roll, and compatibility to hit straight. Callaway did a nice job on this driver!
Conssticker on clubface leaves a residue, but soap and lukewarm water gets it off...not that big of a deal!

I know all of you who are reading this have tried out your playing partners new driver. Well, every time I have, I ducked hooked it left or had to call for a mulligan ( real men don't take mulligans). This is absolutely the truth, I _ _ it you not, I hit the Diablo four times during my round and it went down the middle and twenty yards farther, 240 to 275. I have used a Taylormade for the last 10 years which I have been very happy. I am not being paid any dollars for writing this review.

I really like this driver it took me a few holes to figure out there us only one way to hit this club and that's hard. I'm use to a 3/4 swing easy stroke, nice and strait. Not with this club the softer i hit it the worse the slice or hook. So i started full swinging it all balls and the ball went strait as an arrow and far. I couldn't believe i reached the green on a 300 yard par 4 my first eagle. Now that i figured out how to hit the club, i can now fade the ball the amateur way of course.
ProsWeight, Forgiveness, Grip, Feel, Sound, and of course the added distance

Wanted to try this club on the range first, but didn't get a chance. I was switching from a Cleveland Launcher which I consistently hit 235-250 yards on most of my good drives. When I got up to the first hole GPS said the pin was 265 yards away. I thought I hit it is reasonably well and yelled fore and had to go up and apologize because my ball was only about 8 feet from the pin. I used the club 11 more times that day and I can't say all of them were 260+, but even on miss hits the ball carried at least 50 yards farther than I was expecting it to be. So I am very pleased with this club and highly recommend it.
ProsExtra distance. Longer miss hits.
ConsClub feels light. Doesn't give a loud ping when struck well.

February 7, 2013
I read a lot of reviews on drivers. I was really hesitent to buy a tour driver but at the price I fealt like i couldn't pass up the value. Taking in to consideration that I'm a weekend golfer at best, I hit the ball a TON with this club. When I was able to hit it straight it went at least 20 yards farther than my old Wilson driver. The club is a little beyond my capabilities as far as control goes. The open face has turned my baby sized fade to a slice like I haven't seen for a long time. When I do hit it good, it goes a mile. Nothing wrong with the club, just the user.

December 31, 2012
I am a 20-22 handicap, so basically shooting in the mid to upper 90's, with a few rounds here and there in the low 90's. I was hitting a Taylor Made 9.5 reg flex for a long time and cracked the head (hit it off the heel). While waiting for the club to come back (still not back yet), I played around with various drivers and never quite got the right shots consistently out of any (including my Taylor). I had to go down to a 3/4 swing and really slow it down to hit is straight. Lost a ton of distance. Mentioned this to my course pro and he looked at my swing and said I was doing fine and maybe my problem was equipment. suggested that because of my relatively fast swing speed (I'm a big guy), I should consider a stiff shaft, so I took a risk and bought this club (9.5 stiff) (I have a Calloway Diablo Draw 3W and love it). Took a few swings at the range to get back to my original (one month ago) swing. Wow! What a difference...shots were going straight and far - best drives I've hit in a long time (or ever for that matter). Ok, to the course I go. I play on a long course - lots of long par 4's with water approach shots. This driver added 20-40 yards to my drives. Shot a 91 my first time out with the new driver. Now I'm hitting short/mid irons at the green on 300-400 yard holes instead of 3W/5W. I'm hitting short wedges for my 3rd shot on par 5's. Now, don't take this the wrong way. No club will add 40 yards to your drives, but if you've gone to hitting it softer to straighten out your shots, and you can hit a fuller swing straight, there's your added distance. Love this club. Will sell the Taylor Maded on Ebay when I get it back. Dont' get me wrong - the Taylor is a good club...just not good for me.

December 18, 2012
I have the X shaft and this driver is not forgiving. But for the first time ever, I am able to hit a draw, fade, or push to the right. Make a mistake though, and this driver will slice or hook out of bounds. I am averaging 220 with it right now but i think as I continue to improve, i should be able to consistently hit over 240 after a nice roll. This driver was too much precision for my handicap but it is making me a better player.
ProsControl Clean look (not distracting) Paid 70 bucks for it
ConsNot forgiving X Shaft requires you to swing out of your shoes to avoid a slice.

It's a big change
December 9, 2012
I've been having trouble with drivers. The problem being that I keep pulling my drives left. My previous drivers (2) were draw drivers that were used to cure a slice that I couldn't get rid of. I started using the offset driver many years ago after Cobra came out with the first offset driver. After several years of not playing due to physical ailments, I came back into playing and bought new set of Cobra S3Max irons & woods and couldn't hit them, especially the woods. I bought them with senior shafts and traded them in for Adams Redline clubs and also bought a Speedline 9088UL draw driver, again with senior shafts. To make the story shorter, I found that my swing had changed due to the years of layoff. I then bought the Diablo Octane Tour driver with a regular shaft (no offset). Although I still haven't got it totally figured out, I have started swinging easier and hitting the ball straighter and added about 25 yards to every drive. I'm still using irons with senior shafts, but will probably have them re-shafted with regular shafts. The Diablo driver has turned out to be a good change.

I used to be a regular golfer with a 7-10 handicap but hadn't played for a couple of years. I was using a Taylor Burner and hitting it pretty good but my son was out hitting me by a good 15-25 yards. From the first drive, the Diablo was great adding those yards back to my drives and I hit it very straight. It feels great to hit and the sweet spot is bigger than I thought it would be since it's a tour driver. I'm so glad I bought it. Good luck to all who get one.

ProsThe senior shaft
By Ray G.
Astoria, NY
Early returns are looking good...
October 2, 2012
I've only had the chance to give this club a go at a range a few times. However, the balls were new range balls so consistency was pretty good. I've always suspected that a "Tour" model driver would better suit my swing and this club has proved to me that I was right. A bit more compact head with a deeper face and shaft that is just about 1/2 shorter than a 'standard' model means that I'm getting more sweet-spot hits and the ball is jumping off the face. My r7 that this will replace was good, but I would usually strike the clubface pretty high up most of the time and not 'quite' grab the sweet-spot, thus losing a bit of distance. The '09 Tour Burner I tried last year was just too BIG and too light and I felt that I couldn't always control the club, and the ball just didn't jump off the face. It didn't sound right either. This club has a decent sound on good hits so you can get decent audio feedback, without sounding like a bell. It also has good tactile feedback as well- I could usually tell if I was heel or toe biased on the strikes based on feel and ball flight. It sets up 1* open so that is something I need to account for, since I usually play a draw that might morph into a slinging duck hook once in a while with the r7 set to neutral/low. Lining up to the left side with a more neutral grip gave me a slight fade back to the intended target. BUT- I was able to work the ball to the left with the right setup, so I can keep my draw when I need one. Distance was increased a bit over the r7 and a LOT over the Burner. Maybe 10 yds carry over the R7 and 15-20 over the Burner. Getting this club during the $69 sale was a steal and I'm glad I held back a few weeks before pulling the trigger on this one.

Average drive today 285-290,I have a swing speed of about 95, but should be a little higher with the longer shaft and lighter club. I had two drives today at 305. Shot 78, not bad for a 13 handicap. My last Driver PowerBilt AirForce One with a motore shaft which I still like but the Callaway does what it does a lot easier. I hit ten of 14 fairways, This driver is easy to control, even off center hits get good results, From other comments I thought the Project X shaft this one being a stiff was not going to work but I love it. And to beat it all, I got it from Rock Bottom Golf for 69.99 plus shipping, what a score. Oh by the way, I just got this in the mail today 9/20/12 and this was my result.

September 5, 2012
Great club, its almost too easy to hit well. Very long and impressive trajectory. I have to swing ridiculously hard to make this club slice at the range. With my normal swing I just hammer the ball straight down the fairway. It is a bit heavier than the Taylor Made 2.0, which I like. It feels more substantial and helps me swing easier. I would never have been able to afford a club of this caliber until I found rock bottom golf, and shipping was FAST. My order was at my doorstep a day before the estimated time, from their warehouse to my door in 2 days which I am overjoyed about. Thanks for the great deal, guys.

Great head, not-so-stiff shaft
August 25, 2012
I am very, very happy with the driver now when I changed the shaft from the Project X 6.0 Stiff to House of Forged's Jamie Sadlowski shaft. Now I can the ball very far to right direction and - in comparison to Adams Insight tour head earlier on the HoF shaft - the control and workability is in right balance with my skills and swing. Great feeling, great sound, right weight etc. workability. I do not expect too much forgiveness since my approach to that is that the club should tell me phycially, when I hit bad to avoid repeating poor swings. Now the balance is right with this shaft; the club lets me to put my best swing on it with full power behind the swing and still there is a lot of potential in the club I have not learned to use. So, I really expect the club to stay in my bag for quite a while. Thus, the head is cashing all the promises when shafted properly. OEM shaft could work for many (as the ones on Octane Tour fairway woods 15&18 which work very well - long nice, well controlled hits, but I need to hit with those much lighter to hit well and precicely and then the ball flies beatifully and far) but did not work that well with my swing but that is not average. After years at gym and speeding all my strenght when hitting with driver, the shaft is not in use it usually would be. Thus, I would guess it should work with anyone hitting respective Diablo irons.

I'm a relatively high handicap golfer but capable of making every shot. Just can't always put them together. My Taylor Made R7 has been going south lately, not sure if it was the club or me, but this new Calloway is LOOONNNGGG and very forgiving. I have added at least 15-20 yards to every drive and straight seems effortless. The only trick I found was to play the ball forward, lean into your drive and throw your hands at it, then WOW! Doesn't have that sweet ding sound but who cares if it's long and in the fareway.

Absolutely love this driver. Purchased a regular flex, 10.5 degree Diablo Octane Tour Driver.

I'm a high handicap golfer just upgrading from my first set of bargain basement clubs. This driver is a marked improvement over my old club. I got the stiff flex shaft and I think it's made a ton of difference. Good strikes go crazy far, and mishits stay fairly straight also.

Nice shape, but heavy swing weight.
July 3, 2012
I purchased the 10.5deg loft with Project X 7.0 shaft (x-stiff). I liked the lower profile look of the tour model head, but this driver has a heavier swing weight than my Diablo Edge Tour driver. In fact, the whole driver feels heavier even though it is touted as being lighter. The Project X shaft also produces a higher ball flight than the Aldila Habanero shaft in my Diablo Edge Tour. Center hits produce a dull thud (like hitting a baseball with a wooden bat) instead of the metallic sound you hear with other drivers. Distance is about the same as the Diablo Edge Tour model, but I feel I have better control with the Diable Edge due to the lighter swing weight.
ProsLower profile head shape. Quality construction. Look at address. Muted sound on impact (not everyone may like this).
ConsHeavier swing weight makes it a bit more difficult to control.

I purchased this driver to fill out my set of Callaway Diablos. I have only used it for one round but I am very pleased with it. I didn't notice a difference in distance but the accuracy was a big improvement.
ProsAccuracy and set up.
ConsNothing as yet.

Very nice driver for a beginner
June 30, 2012
I am a terrible golfer who just recently started the game. I had an outdated driver that I was shanking right about 150 per drive. After purchasing this club, my drives are now around 220. My shanking has been noticeably less as well. Great club, great price.
ProsPrice. Look. Feel. Length. Distance.
ConsNone at this time.

I finally decided to upgrade to a new driver and the price of this club really caught my eye...I went to a few golf shops and the same driver would have cost me between $149.00 and $189.00. I played my first round of golf with this driver on June 22 and noticed on my first drive on an actual hole (not the driving range) that I hit it about 20 yards farther than I normally would. This was a constant for the whole round. I normally have to play a fade with my swing and with this club I have started hitting the ball straight. This is a great club at a great price.
ProsEasy to control 20-30 yards extra off the tee box Good looking club

Very handsome and easy to hit. The feel of the composite was a little bit of a turn off and club felt a little heavy and tedious. However, it gives me confidence and great launch. Distance was just average for me.
ProsLooks, easy to hit
By Steve
Awesome Driver!
June 14, 2012
This driver has easily added 15+ yards to my drives. It has a great sound, not like that loud annoying tinny sound from other drivers. The thing I like best is the size (450cc), bigger is not better. Having the smaller head makes you focus more in my opinion. Finally, working the ball is SO much easier with this club than any other I have tried.
ProsSize Weight No marking lines on the head Sound Distance
ConsNone that I can think of.

Decent driver but disappointed with performance
June 14, 2012
I used to have a 10.5 degree Walter Hagen driver and would hit the ball somewhere around 300 yds with a high trajectory and with this club I'm hitting about 280 - 290 yds with a lower trajectory. The only time the low trajectory is helping me out is when I'm needing to drive on a dry course because I can get some spin on the ball to move it forward some. Being that I live in Oregon where it rains pretty much year round, once the ball hits on the wet grass it almost immediately puts the breaks on the ball to keep it from rolling further causing the ball to stop almost on impact 10 to 15 yds shorter than a higher trajectory hit ball goes.
Prossolid impact, light head, fast movement through air with follow through, straighter drives
Consshorter drives

Nice Driver, Prefer the Regular Model
May 30, 2012
I really enjoy using this driver. It has a hot face while still being controllable, the shaft works well with my swing (others may want to swap out shafts...), and it looks wonderful at address. I gave it 4 stars though because I do prefer the regular model over the Tour Octane as I feel it's more forgiving on mishits. Obviously this model is designed for the lower handicapper so they should be striking the ball correctly more often than a higher handicapper (I'm a mid handicapper), but even still the ball just doesn't quite take off on mishits like the regular model provides. All in all this is a very nice driver and I would recommend for the lower handicapper, for the mid and high handicappers I would recommend the regular Diablo Octane Driver.
ProsHot face Looks great at address Nice weight
ConsNot forgiving enough on mishits

This club puts my Nike Squash to shame!
May 25, 2012
I will never use another club unless it is Callaway. I purchased my Nike Squash driver last year & it doesn't even compare to this driver.
By Andrew
Solid driver
May 22, 2012
In my opinion the tour is not stronger than the standard version, but driving is not my strength. I found off centre hits did not get the flight I wanted and the standard shaft did not suit me. If you like a heavier shaft and have very few off centre hits worth a try, if driving isn't a strength I recommend give the non tour version a go
ProsHigh quality Long on perfect hits
ConsNot forgiving

Only played with the Octane two times so far, but I have really noticed how the ball just jumps off the clubface. My only small gripe is that the stiff shaft is sort of wippy for me. I should have ordered the Ultra-stiff shaft. Other than that the Octane is great so far.
ProsSound on contact Ball jumps off the clubface Looks great
ConsStiff shaft is a little wippy.

Couldn't be more pleased
May 7, 2012
This is my first 460cc driver so I was expecting it to be a little longer than my old driver. I wasn't expecting 25 yards longer! But the real kicker is that so far it has been consistantly straight! I am loving this driver!
ProsLength, ball flight

May 7, 2012
I have been using this club for over a year and love it. Recently purchased another one with a lower launch angle as I am more of a high ball hitter. I have gotten about 5 more yards and more importantly, I have been more consistently on the fairway. I would recommend this club for any level golfer especially at this price.

I found this driver easy to hit straight. The distance is awesome. It's a fantastic club for the price. It gives me great confidence in the tee box...and I'm a high handicap.

Long and Workable
April 28, 2012
Very similar to the Diablo Edge Tour. Slightly more stable with a nominal increase in distance, but certainly not worth a buy if you already own the Edge. However, make no mistake--this is one of Callaway's best drivers to date, particularly if you're not willing to break the bank for a RAZR Fit. Very handsome club as well with traditional looks. Nice and weighty too. Grip n' Rip!
ProsLong Workable Reasonably Forgiving
ConsLoud and Tinny

Im on my second diablo octane tour.The first I had never let me down but for some reason I went to the golf shop one day and traded it in on another club. Boy was I sorry! I played the new club for about 10 rounds and couldn't take it any longer. I put it up for sale and ordered me another diablo octane tour and the 3 wood to go with it. I recieved it last week and have played 2 rounds with it so far. It feels so good to be 290-300 yards down the fairway again.
ConsAbsolutely nothing! That's why I still can't figure out why I got rid of the first one.
