Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Max Fast

Why We Like It

This model helps players struggling to produce more clubhead speed by reducing the overall weight and offering higher lofts (like a 16-degree standard 3-wood). Built on a similar footprint as the Max D, the Max Fast offers a built-in draw bias to help players square the clubface at impact. Furthering the draw bias is a more upright lie angle, and a fixed hosel saves weight to redistribute to the perimeter. A 40-gram shaft offers the potential for more swing speed with shots likely to launch higher with mid-spin.

Swing Your Fairway Wood with Confidence

One of the more difficult shots amateurs face is the long approach that requires a fairway wood. Most players aren’t confident hitting a 3-wood off the ground, and they don’t practice the shot enough to build confidence. In this video, Jason Birnbaum shares his best confidence-building techniques and tips on how to make a solid contact with these long clubs.
