Hi everybody Donal here from Golfbidder.
We’ve come to Orlando Florida to The PGA Show. The world’s biggest show in golf.
All the major manufacturers are here. We’re going to make our way round the range
to bring you the very best, the very latest of what available
in the golf world. So check out all our videos on Golfbidder.
Hi everybody, Donal from Golfbidder here. We’re at The PGA Show 2011. We’re with Nathan
from Callaway. Nathan, how’s it going? Great, nice to meet you, thanks for having me. This
is the Diablo Octane new for 2011. Tell us a little bit about the club. The great thing
about this club is that we’ve actually invented a new material called forged composite and
the crown of this driver is made from all forged composite. The great thing about it
is that most clubs in this price range, that £199 price point, are made from all titanium.
But we’ve give a new material with an added benefit. The added benefit is that this product
right here is 8 yards longer than an all titanium driver. Right and that’s on the testing, the
robotic testing? That’s actually from player testing down at the Callaway testing plant
in Carlsbad California. And just a quick word on what’s different on this driver, tell us
a little bit about the specs of it. Yeah, the specs are pretty interesting. There are
actually 2 different models in the group. There’s a Tour model and the standard model.
We have the Tour version here. The Tour version is a little bit smaller at 445cc’s, it has
a hosel on it and it sits a little bit more open. And on the standard version, it’s a
larger footprint at 460cc’s, face angles are square to 1 degree closed depending on the
loft. Higher lofts are a little bit more closed for that player and it doesn’t have a hosel
on it. Are there players on Tour using these? Actually Ernie Els put this in play the first
week we brought it out on Tour and has already won twice with it. The Grand Slam of Golf
and the South African open. What an endorsement. So check out the Callaway Diablo Octane Black
on Golfbidder. Thanks Nathan. Thank you.
