What Callaway says about the new Paradym irons:

“Distance irons are obviously long, but discerning players also want an exceptionally high level of feel. So why not have both in one club?

“Our Paradym Shift Construction combines a Forged 455 Face with the all‑new Speed Frame, giving you get the best of both worlds.

“Industry-leading A.I. face technology is applied to a high-strength Forged 455 face, creating our most powerful forged iron face ever.

“The all-new Hollow Body design features Speed Frame construction for added stiffness to the body and support for the high-strength Forged 455 Face Cup. This unique construction is the catalyst that stabilizes a thinner face for incredibly fast ball speeds.

“A forged face and patented Urethane Microspheres deliver the ultra-soft feel and premium sound that discerning players demand.

“Precisely placed dual tungsten weighting enhances launch conditions and improves speed on mis-hits. This increase in forgiveness is the difference between hitting the green and coming up short.”

Callaway Paradym X Irons Specs & Design

Callaway Paradym X Irons

The Paradym X irons are targetted at mid-to-high handicappers with some noticeable tweaks compared to the Paradym.

The loft are stronger in these irons, but that is made the case due to the designed of the tungsten irons being focused on a higher launch off the clubface.

You can expect to see a high and long launch from the Paradym X, which have been crafted to maximise the distances of 12 handicap golfers and upwards.

This model also had a hollow body construction with Speed Frame for stiffness, but has a thicker top line than the Paradyms and a wider sole to improve the forgiveness levels and ball striking.

They also feature heavier dual tungsten weighting at 76g to create more forgiveness off the Forged 455 Face Cup.

Verdict: Are Callaway Paradym irons any good?

Callaway have come up with two interesting models in the new Paradym range and we really like the fact that they have been designed with two handicap sets in mind.

The greater forgiveness levels in the Paradym X is excellent to see for mid to high handicappers, while the Paradym model is much more playable.

Overall, the design looks good with a classic irons shape. It will be interesting to see how they go out of the box when fully launched.
