Callaway PARADYM Woods and Irons Review – a Definitive Shift in Performance



Callaway Golf is entering 2023 looking to create a new paradigm for golfers. With their latest lineup unveiled, PARADYM is the brand’s take on how to reimagine golf club design from the ground up. What they hope to achieve is a complete shift in performance, with designs that radically break the trade off between distance and exceptional forgiveness. Read on to find out if Callaway succeeded in their quest to achieve a new PARADYM of performance.


Callaway PARADYM Drivers – An Industry-First Innovation

Callaway has really pulled out all the stops with the PARADYM Driver design. An industry-first 360° Carbon Chassis has been employed, removing all titanium from the body by combining a Triaxial Carbon Crown with Callaway’s proprietary Forged Carbon Sole. Callaway states the results are a body that’s a whopping 44% lighter than an all-titanium one. The saved weight is then repositioned both forward to enhance ball speed and toward the back of the clubhead for increased forgiveness.

Beyond the carbon chassis, Callaway have unveiled a new A.I. Designed Jailbreak system that’s 33% lighter than its predecessor. Used to enhance stability and ball speeds, the new Jailbreak is designed to increase stiffness in the body for more face flex and increased ball speeds.


3 Ways to Dial in Ball Flight

PARADYM – Distance & Adjustability

Fact Finder: The best combination of distance, forgiveness and adjustability. A 15g sliding weight allows players to experience an average 12 yards of shot shape correction. It’s modern shaping offers mid-high launch, low spin and a neutral flight bias.

Who’s it for: It’s compact Tour-shaping is made for better players who like to work the ball.


The Fairway Woods – Up to 7 Yards Longer

The new Callaway PARADYM Fairway Woods utilise the completely new construction in the PARADYM series to eliminate weight from the body and reposition it for unprecedented gains in speed and MOI. Each of the three models has been uniquely designed to offer specific players their maximum performance.

The brand’s new A.I. designed Jailbreak with Batwing Technology works by increasing stiffness in the body for more face flexure. The results of this = higher balls speeds, more distance and, according to Callaway, up to 7 yards more distance than the Rogue ST Max fairway woods. Other new features include 23g of high-density tungsten (the Tungsten Speed Cartridge) that helps push CoG low and forward for optimal launch and spin, as well as a new A.I. designed high-strength face cup to help promote better speed and consistency across the entire face.


3 Ways to Add Distance

An adjustable hosel in the 3W and 3HL models allows players additional control and ability to really dial-in launch. You can expect high launch, low spin, neutral flight bias, all in a shallow face profile with a modern footprint.

You can expect penetrating launch, with the lowest spin of the three models, as well as a neutral flight bias. With a deep face profile and compact footprint, the triple diamond is made for stronger players.

Who’s it for: Engineered for better players who value penetrating ball flight with lower spin.

Other features include the all-new Tungsten Speed Cartridge, Jailbreak with Batwing Technology and an A.I. Designed high strength 455 Face Cup that optimises ball speed and improves spin robustness across the entire face. An adjustable hosel also allows players to fully optimise trajectory and control.
