Paradym X

What it does: The Paradym X features the same technology as the Paradym iron in the players-distance category: hollow-body construction, variable-thickness cupface and internal urethane microspheres. The high-strength 455 stainless steel typically used in metal woods allowed Callaway engineers to design a face that’s thinner than if they had used traditional stainless steel. This results in a fast-flexing face with select areas stiffened to allow the cupface to transfer energy to the ball more efficiently.

Why we like it: If the players-distance Paradym is a luxury car, the Paradym X is a monster truck. The face has more pop than a champagne cork, and the beefier head size, topline and sole provide comfort to golfers lacking some confidence. Hidden but still very important are a pair of tungsten weights (as much as 67 grams) that precisely locate the centre of gravity (CG) of each iron – an internal one places the CG in line with the centre of the face and an external one drives the CG lower. Why should you care? The tungsten also helps mis-hits or, in layman’s terms, it can be the difference between hitting the green or dumping it in the bunker.

Reviewer profile

“I love the chrome finish. This club is powerful, and the feel is the softest in this category. Power to spare. The ball just goes.”
