Callaway has boldly announced that its Paradym drivers are “winning.”
Without any qualifications or explanation, that sounds like some mighty high praise, and perhaps just a bit of promotional hype. After all, there are lots of other new drivers out there that are making the rounds for their advanced technology.
But when it comes to stretching distance to the physical limits as far as forgiveness is concerned, no other new driver really comes close - if you can excuse the pun.
Here’s how they do it.
360° Carbon Chassis
Callaway Paradym drivers feature the industry’s first 360° carbon chassis, which includes a Triaxial Carbon Crown and forged carbon sole.
Together, these are 44% lighter than traditional titanium construction, enabling the Callaway engineers to redistribute the weight of the club head to increase moment-of-inertia (MOI) and forgiveness.
AI-Designed Jailbreak System
The inside of the club head features Callaway’s AI-designed “Jailbreak System,” which looks like a “Y” support brace. This structure stabilizes the clubhead both horizontally and torsionally.
This structure is also lighter than traditional reinforcements, lightening the club head, enabling higher club head speeds for greater energy transfer at impact.
The face of the Callaway Paradym driver has also been developed using an AI-assist; it is the world’s most advanced driver face developed using artificial intelligence and boosts speed, controls spin, optimizes launch, and manages downrange shot dispersion.
Collectively, this AI-designed club face is optimized for range, forgiveness and accuracy.
Forged Titanium Face, Speed Enhancing Face Cup
The weight savings of Callaway’s Carbon Chassis have enabled their engineer to save some of that weight for the face, which has been created using an advanced forged titanium face cup that is light and strong. The face cup is optimized to enhance ball speeds off the tee.
Adjustable Perimeter Weighting
Club head weighting and individual swing dynamics are mostly responsible for shot shape. Traditionally, the only way to adjust shot shape was by addressing swing form or by changing your shaft and club combo.
Advances in technology have enabled manufacturers like Callaway to produce driver heads with adjustable perimeter weighting, which enables easy adjustment of the weight and balance of a driver head.
This technology enables golfers to adjust shot shape with no changes to swing form. Callaway Paradym drivers feature a sliding 15g weight, from adjustments to which golfers can experience an average of 12 yards of shot shape correction.
Callaway Paradym, Paradym X, and Paradym Triple Diamond Drivers: A Paradym for Any Player Type
Callaway Paradym drivers are available in 3 basic configurations, the standard line, the Paradym X, and the Triple Diamond driver.
The classic Paradym produces high launch and low spin shot characteristics, with neutral ball flight (easily adjustable thanks to its perimeter weighting system). The base Paradym offers the best balance of forgiveness, distance, and adjustability. It features a 57° lie angle and either 9°, 10.5°, or 12° of loft.
The Paradym X produces a slightly higher launch than the base Paradym and creates a slight draw bias. It offers excellent forgiveness, though, the best in the line. It also features a 5g back weight, comes with a 60° lie angle and is available with either 9°, 10.5°, or 12° of loft.
Callaway also produces the Paradym Triple Diamond, the most highly refined of the lot, which produces the lowest launch and spin profiles. It produces neutral ball flight but comes with interchangeable 14g back and 2g front weights to manipulate ball flight. It has a 57° lie and is available with either 8°, 9° or 10.5° of loft.
Wrapping It All Up: Callaway Paradym
Together, the features covered in this article make the Callaway Paradym line of drivers among the most advanced in the industry.
The refined shape, adjustable weighting (and weight savings), and high MOI result in driver heads that deliver unrivaled range, control of shot dispersion, forgiveness, and adjustability.
What Callaway Driver Shafts to Pair with the Callaway Paradym?
If the hype surrounding the Callaway Paradym has caught your attention, you might be wondering which Callaway driver shafts are best to pair with it.
That will depend on your individual measurements, swing speed, and mechanics, but Callaway suggests a few shafts as good matches for their Paradym drivers. These are:
- Aldila Ascent PL Blue
- Project X HZRDUS Gen 4 Silver
- Project X HZRDUS Gen 4 Black
- Fujikura Ventus TR Blue
These are, however, not the only shafts that make a good match for a Callaway Paradym, nor should you restrict your research to those.
