Callaway Golf Company have launched their new Diablo Octane and Diablo Octane Tour Drivers, as well as the new Diablo Octane Fairway Woods, based on a material called Forged Composite.
Callaway say that the performance characteristics of Forged Composite, a material developed in conjunction with Research and Development partner Automobili Lamborghini, has allowed Callaway engineers to develop an advanced clubhead with a greater transfer of power at impact and more accurate trajectories versus its all-titanium counterparts.
""Applying Forged Composite in tandem with a proprietary isothermal forging process has generated a measurable performance advantage over the metal alloys generally used to manufacture golf clubs,"" said Dr. Alan Hocknell, Sr. Vice President, Research and Development, Callaway Golf. ""The Diablo Octane Drivers are configured to deliver unmatched power and precision through superior design, construction and advanced materials.""
