Paradym / Paradym X / Paradym ♢♢♢

Hot List Gold 2023

Our Review:

WHAT IT DOES: These three models all feature thin titanium faces and distinctive weighting systems to optimize three different ball-flight trajectories. The carbon-composite body is free of titanium and other metal support structures except for the newest version of Callaway’s flex-enhancing “jailbreak” brace behind the face. The use of carbon composite also saves about 20 grams for engineers to use along the perimeter to enhance forgiveness. 

WHY WE LIKE IT: For Callaway, the driver isn’t just a story about how flexible the face can be designed or how much mass a lightweight body might save. Those attributes are a given. What makes these drivers special is how the faces and the intricate carbon-composite bodies are integrated to maximize distance and minimize dispersion for each player type. Read more>>

Player Comments
"Strong look. Ball flight climbs rapidly. Launches high, still rolls out. Free and easy to swing with plenty of punch behind it. Got the distance gains I was expecting. A simple and pleasing experience."
Handicap, 8
“Really jumps from the get go—explosive. A lot more hang time than any driver I hit. Floats with authority. So easy to drive the head through the ball.”
Handicap, 14
"Smaller, more compact head on the Triple Diamond. The dark blue is a nice touch. This club was like KIT from Night Rider, fast and sneaks up on you. Ideal mid ball flight with a smooth descent coming down."
Handicap, +4

From the Manufacturer

To create a new paradigm for golfers, we’ve reimagined how a driver is built from the ground up. This is a complete shift in performance, with a design that radically breaks the tradeoff between incredible distance and exceptional forgiveness. The Paradym Shift Construction features an industry-first 360 Carbon Chassis that eliminates titanium from the body, so we can push weight and stability to the limit. This massive weight savings is repositioned both forward to enhance ball speed, and toward the back of the clubhead for increased forgiveness. Available in Paradym, Paradym X and Paradym Triple Diamond models.
