Default Callaway Diablo Edge vs Diablo Octane Driver?

Anyone played both and can comment on them?
I need a new driver to replace my 7 years old ones, and both seem to be at a great price right now (octane $199, edge $149)

Is there a big difference between them (feels, distance, forgiveness)?
I have a tendency to fade or slice my driver still working on correcting it.

Is there any other good driver choice at this price range?

I would spend the extra dough on the Octane. Forged composite crown, and a better stock shaft.

Would you consider the Callaway FT-iz? I just went and hit both the Octane and FT-iz and I found I had straighter hits and better control with the FT-Iz.

But I'm a beginner so I don't know how much that helps.

got the diablo edge in the bag and i love it. solid feel, straight, far, intimidating sound, everything someone wants in a driver. But id definetly recommend spending the extra dough and getting the octane. its the edge, redefined. The Edge will have you wanting more.
