|Must-Haves: Want to add a new weapon to your arsenal? Here are some surefire options. |
Callaway Diablo Hybrid
Diablo may be Spanish for devil, but Callaway’s new Diablo hybrid, with its red clubhead and shaft, is anything but evil.
The Diablo has three major features to help golfers add distance and forgiveness, something most golfers can’t muster from hard-to-hit long irons.
Why should you pick one up? For one thing, it features a Dual Runner Sole, which reduces the amount of surface area the Diablo comes into contact with, thus making it easy to hit from any lie.
For another, it moves the CG deep and low, making it easy to get the ball airborne.
Its S2H2 (Short, Straight, Hollow, Hosel) helps move weight from the hosel and repositions it to more advantageous areas. Our take? Callaway’s Diablo is heavenly. callawaygolf.com $139/$159 (steel/graphite)
Cleveland CG14 CAMO Wedge
Perfect to pull out of the bag on approach shots or on your next hunting trip, Cleveland’s CG14 CAMO wedge incorporates the same technology found in the CG14 wedges, but with a cool camouflage finish. That’s right, camouflage.
Capitalizing on the growing popularity of camo on the golf course (Cleveland also has released a CAMO bag and CAMO golf cap), the CG14 CAMO is guaranteed to be the talk of your foursome.
But it doesn’t just excel in its style. The CG14 CAMO features all the great technology of the original CG14 wedge.
Features include ZIP Grooves that are milled to optimize spin and improve consistency. With a gelback insert in the trailing edge that provides a soft, yet responsive feel, the CG14 also has slight offset for enhanced trajectory control. clevelandgolf.com $129
