Offered in multiple design options to suit a wide range of golfers, Callaway Golf’s new PARADYM range features three drivers (Standard, X and Triple Diamond), three fairway wood options (Standard, X and Triple Diamond), two hybrids (Standard and X) and two iron designs (Standard and X). They are all due at retail from February 24.
The Standard Paradym driver provides a refined shape with high MOI and adjustable perimeter weighting. Engineered for players of all skill levels, this club promotes high launch and low spin characteristics along with a neutral ball flight to deliver the best combination of distance, forgiveness and adjustability. The 460cc head features 15g sliding weight which enables players to experience an average of 12 yards of shot shape correction.
Loft options: 9°, 10.5°, 12°
The Paradym X driver is built for a high launch with high MOI, along with a generously stretched profile at address. This model is best suited for golfers seeking extreme forgiveness and a slight draw bias from their driver. A 5g rear weight is positioned to increase launch and lower spin for maximum carry distance.
Loft options: 9°, 10.5°, 12°
Paradym Triple Diamond
The Paradym Triple Diamond model boasts a compact, 450cc head shape designed for better players who want to work the ball. It’s the lowest spinning and lowest launching Paradym model with a neutral ball flight. A 14g back weight can be positioned in the front of the 460cc head for lower spin and maximum workability.
Loft options: 8°, 9°, 10.5°
Features & Benefits (common to all three models)
360° Carbon Chassis – The 360° Carbon Chassis promotes unprecedented weight redistribution for maximized distance. The triaxial carbon crown and forged carbon sole is 44% lighter than a titanium chassis. This massive weight savings is repositioned for higher MOI and increased forgiveness.
New Jailbreak AI – A new A.I. designed Jailbreak system provides stability in both the horizontal and torsional direction. Now with a 33% lighter weight design, Callaway has enhanced stability for faster ball speeds from its industry-leading COR.
New AI-designed face– An all-new A.I. face optimisation enhances speed, launch and spin, and now downrange dispersion. This is the world’s most advanced driver face designed by artificial intelligence.
Face Cup & Forged Titanium Face– Paradym is the first driver to utilize Callaway’s industry-leading face cup technology. The face cup has been paired with a powerful, forged titanium face, a combination that provides higher energy transfer to the ball than a standard driver face insert.
Speaking about the technology in the new Paradym driver range, Evan Gibbs, Callaway’s R&D Woods Director, said: “The 360° Carbon Chassis really refers to the centre portion of the driver that is made completely of carbon composite. Two proprietary materials to Callaway, on the top we have a Triaxial Carbon Crown, it’s a continuous carbon fibre that’s woven and creates a very thin, lightweight structure. And then in the bottom, we have a Forged Carbon which consists of bundles of chopped fibres that are forged into shape.
“This gives us an advantage over traditional composites and allows us to mold it into some complex geometries and gives a lot better control of the thickness of the part. So, we can strategically thicken and thin it out where it needs to be in order to get the right strength and stiffness. It’s a big advantage because it takes out all the metal in the middle portion of the clubhead.
“There’s no titanium or aluminium reinforcements, this is 100% carbon composite bonded together, and it’s about 44% lighter than a titanium chassis, so that gives us a ton of discretionary weight that we can take out of the middle of the clubhead and move into different areas to enhance performance. A lot of it is in the back of the clubhead to give some adjustability and higher MOI, and some of it shifted to the front to enhance the ball speed technologies.”
PARADYM FAIRWAY WOODS
Callaway’s engineers have come up with a completely new construction process for the Paradym range of fairway woods which moves weight from the body and repositions it for unprecedented gains in speed and MOI. Each of the three models have been uniquely designed with a specific player in mind to fully maximise their performance.
Paradym Standard Fairway
The Standard model features progressive shaping in the head, and it’s the model that fits the widest range of player types, especially those who want a high launching fairway wood with a neutral ball flight.
Loft options: 3 (15°), 3HL (16.5°), 5 (18°), Hvn (20°), 7 (21°), 9 (24°), 11 (27°)
Paradym X Fairway
The X model will fit players looking for the most forgiving shape with a high launch and a slight draw bias. A forged carbon toe patch redistributes weight to the heel to make this fairway easy to turn over to encourage a draw. It is built with a more upright lie angle and a neutral face at address. An adjustable 3W gives the golfer the ability to even further dial in launch.
Loft options: 3 (15°), 3HL (16.5°), 5 (18°), 7 (21°)
Paradym Triple Diamond Fairway
The TD model offer the most compact fairway wood shape with a deeper face at address. This offering is best suited for stronger players who are looking for a penetrating ball flight with lower spin. The Triaxial Carbon crown aids in creating a low and forward CG, while an adjustable hosel allows golfers to further dial in trajectory.
Loft options: 3+ (13.5°), 3 (15°), 5 (18°)
Features & Benefits (common to all three models)
Jailbreak with Batwing Technology – The A.I. Designed Jailbreak Batwing structure is pushed to the perimeter to stiffen the body, while allowing the face to flex for high ball speeds.
Forged Carbon sole – The forged carbon sole featured in the 3W, 3HL, & 5W models enables unprecedented weight redistribution for maximised distance, higher MOI, and Callaway’s longest fairway wood ever.
Tungsten Speed Cartridge – By incorporating between 21g and 25g high-density tungsten (21g in the TD model, 23 g in the standard model and 25g in the X model), Callaway has pushed the centre of gravity low and forward. The result is optimal launch and spin for each model, with more speed for maximum distance.
High-Strength Face Cup – Callaway has applied an all new A.I. face optimisation to include speed, launch, and spin. The unique face pattern is customised for each model and paired with our high-strength C300 maraging steel face cup. This promotes impressive speed and consistency across the face.
Adjustability for More Versatility – With progressive shaping and the most extensive offering, Paradym Fairway Woods will be the go-to model for players who want consistent launch with ease and a neutral ball flight. An adjustable hosel in the 3W and 3HL models gives players additional control to dial in launch.
Callaway has completely changed the shaping of its hybrids – compared to past models – to offer greater versatility along with a more rounded wood-like shape compared to the lower heel and higher toe profile in the past. The shape change was a direct result of requests from players looking for better blending into the longer clubs, and from an engineering standpoint, it helps the adjustable hosel blend more seamlessly into the head.
The hybrids offer all the same technology as the fairway woods, including a new A.I. Jailbreak Batwing Structure to push mass away from the face for increased MOI and total body rigidity, along with a Cutwave Sole designed to help get the club through a variety of turf conditions.
Offered in two designs, the standard Paradym model is for golfers who want a mid-sized, wood-shaped hybrid that’s long with excellent versatility and control, while the Paradym X model is for golfers looking for a full-sized, wood-shaped hybrid that’s long with excellent versatility and forgiveness.
Loft options: Standard/X: 18°, 21°, 24°, 27°, 30° (X model only)
The Paradym and Paradym X irons are designed to offer the best combination of feel and distance by pairing Callaway’s Artificial Intelligence face technology with a forged 455 material.
The standard Paradym Irons are aimed at those looking for a players’ distance iron with a refined shape and premium forging. A pre-worn leading edge is designed to cut through the turf more efficiently for even more forgiveness.
The Paradym X Irons are designed for golfers who are looking for an iron that’s incredibly long with premium forged feel. It features a thicker topline than the standard irons and a forgiving sole, with a pre-worn leading edge.
Both the Paradym and Paradym X irons feature a hollow body with what Callaway calls a Speed Frame construction. The frame adds support to the face for extra ball speed on off-centre hits and also allows the structure to be made thinner to free up mass. By removing mass that would generally be placed higher in a hollow body iron, the Paradym has the ability to launch it higher with a more stable spin window.
Callaway achieves a soft sound and feel thanks to its patented Urethane Microspheres which encapsulate the internal tungsten weights placed low in the head to enhance launch conditions and increase stability.
