Diadem Icon V2
Apr 23, 2023
Played with the original for about 10 months but think the new one is better. The sweet spot is larger and the grip is shorter with a tapered top and flared bottom which I prefer although two handers may not. It's a much more muted feel than the original that takes some getting used to. My only concern is the sprayed-on grit that may and probably will wear off at some point and what will be the spin character then? At this price point the surface should have been raw carbon fiber.
