January is always an exciting time of the year for golf equipment enthusiasts, and this year is no different as Callaway have announced a huge new range of clubs for 2023, in a complete shake-up of their existing line-up.
Replacing the Rogue ST line, the new Paradym range is said to provide 'unparalleled distance' and sees a complete reimagining of the way Callaway build their drivers in order to offer new levels of high performance.
There are three different models in the new Callaway Paradym driver family:
The Paradym Driver provides a refined shape with high MOI and adjustable perimeter weighting.
A 15g sliding weight allows golfers to enjoy an average of 12 yards of shot shape correction.
The Paradym X is built for a high launch with high MOI, along with a generously stretched profile at address.
This model is said to be best suited to golfers looking for lots of forgiveness and a slight draw bias. 5g of weight is positioned at the rear of the head to increase launch and lower spin to maximise carry.
The Paradym Triple Diamond is a compact, 450cc shape designed for better players who want more workability. The lowest spinning and lowest launching model, with a neutral ball flight.
It features a 14g back weight which can be positioned in the front of the head to lower spin and maximise the workability.
So, what is all the fuss about with the new Callaway drivers? Yes, you guessed it - carbon, but not exactly where you might expect it...
The Paradym drivers feature an industry-first 360° Carbon Chassis, which eliminates titanium from the body to provide more scope for weight distribution and maximise distance.
The Triaxial Carbon crown and Forged Carbon sole is 44% lighter than a titanium chassis, allowing weight to be moved in order to raise the MOI and therefore increase forgiveness.
Jailbreak technology has been included in Callaway metals for a number of years now and it continues into the Paradym range too. This adds stability in both horizontal and torsional direction, just like in last year's Rogue ST, but it now has a 33% lighter design to promote faster ball speeds.
A new AI face optimisation is designed to enhance speed, launch and spin, and new for this year, downrange dispersion. Callaway say that this is the 'world's most advanced driver face designed by artificial intelligence'. A very big claim, but one we have come to expect from the likes of Callaway.
The Paradym range of drivers are also the first to use Callaway's face cup technology, pairing it up with a forged, titanium face which provides more energy transfer to the ball than a normal face insert.
Available to purchase from February 24th, the Callaway Paradym Drivers are priced at a whopping £599, coming in 9, 10.5 and 12 degree lofts.
