Rated 5 out of 5 by Darbu Excellent club, great price
I bought this club to replace another 3wood I was having trouble hitting consistently. Found it during an additional sale on CGPO for a steal. I selected the Average rating because of the price. With shipping the club cost me $52. Received it the day before an outing and had little time on the range with it but I must say I am excited about the possibilities it gives me out on the course. Tee shot or from the fairway this club has become my new best friend. Although it was rated in average condition it looks as if it has hardly been used. But for a few faint marks on the sole it is virtually brand new. We have all seen demo clubs with more wear and tear on them than this one. The head cover and grip were brand new as well. I have been a fan of Callaway since I first saw the S2H2s of years gone by. Even own a set of them and have not found anything that works for me better. The diablo Octane will be in my bag until I can no longer play. Look ing forward to getting the driver,etc. to match.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tracer Replaced mydriver with three wood
I am 74 years old, 16 hdc. and replaced my 460cc driver with a Callaway Octane Diablo three wood, 15 degrees, (not the tour model) stiff shaft. I hit almost all the fairways off the tee, sometimes with a slight draw. I was lucky to hit 4 out of 14 with the driver. Due to age, my swing speed is 82 miles per hour, so the extra loft, shorter shaft works . I play with a 15 handicapper and out drive him on many holes, he uses a 460cc driver. To me the three wood is a driver, it's just has a shorter shaft and more loft. Look up Greg Norman's tip #48, it has a great explanation why recreational golfers and amateurs should tee off with a three wood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DavePA Great 3 wood for off the tee
Wow is all I have to say about this 3 wood. This is easy to hit and long. This will be used more then my driver unless I am teeing off on a wide open, long par 4. This club will get you plenty of distance and is forgiving, and with 15 degrees of loft, a 3 wood is easier to hit straight then even the most forgiving drivers. This is a great club to have in your bag. And once again, Callaway pre-owned comes through with a great club.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Golf Fanatic hit them longer
The Diablo Octane series is improving my game, making me more consistent, hitting straighter shots, and getting more distance. I can hit the 9 wood as far as I could hit my previous 7 wood, and so on down the line. Everyone of my friends who has tried them wants to buy a set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jurassic Jarhead Excellent value
I recently replaced my 10 year old driver with a new Callaway Diablo Octane, so I wanted to replace my aged and mismatched 3 wood and 5 wood with fairway woods that would match my new driver. Callaway offered the matching clubs on their pre-owned site. I selected the "good" condition option.They arrived quickly and in what I would consider "excellent" condition. Both clubs give me great distance and controllability. All three Callaway clubs give me confidence to hit shots that I would not have attempted with my old clubs.
