Our In-Depth Callaway Paradym Hybrid Review
We immensely enjoyed the new shape of the Callaway Paradym hybrid. With a head shape somewhere between full-fledged fairway clubs and traditional hybrid, the unique aerodynamic shape made powerful swings that produced staggering power at impact.
The mid-sized wood-shaped hybrid does carry the same black, blue, and gold color scheme, and if you’ve read our Paradym driver review, you’ll know we aren’t a fan of the mashup.
At impact, the Callaway Paradym hybrid produced a pleasing sound that signified a terrific shot.
This new Paradym hybrid offers pure aural feedback from modern golf clubs that you don’t see often and is a definite improvement over last year’s Rogue ST Max hybrid.
The Callaway Paradym hybrid offers amateurs a clean feel and immediate feedback after impact. From the tee box or sitting pretty in the fairway, the Callaway Paradym hybrid hit tall, far-reaching shots that found the target with high frequency.
The hybrid also provided minimal vibration, even on off-center shots. As a result, our testers adored the confidence these hybrids gave them over time, primarily due to the outstanding feedback the clubs gave them at impact.
Our testers felt the Callaway Paradym hybrid club offered extraordinary power, clean sound and feel, and precise accuracy. Besides our standing complaint about the color scheme, there’s not much to dislike about the Callaway Paradym hybrid.
During our testing for this Callaway Paradym hybrid review, we purposefully hit shots from various difficult lies to make it hard for the club to produce consistency.
But no matter how hard we tried to throw this Callaway Paradym hybrid off, the club delivered impressive across-the-board performance.
A true weapon for mid handicappers looking to reach more greens in regulation, the Paradym and Paradym X hybrids offer well-rounded results that will help you lower scores.

TaylorMade’s Stealth 2 Rescue provides a reliable option for golfers that like to use their hybrid all over the golf course.
From the tee box or the fairway, it offers a dependably high launch with a steep landing angle that holds the green, no matter how far the shot measures.
Compared to the Paradym, I felt the Rescue offered more versatility, although both hybrids delivered staggering power to the golf ball. If you are an experienced golfer looking for workability, the Stealth 2 edges out the Callaway club.
Another dynamic entry into the Stealth 2 club line, the Rescue offers superb performance from the light rough, as the club easily gets underneath the golf ball to provide launch from trouble areas.
Great for low-to-mid handicappers, the Stealth 2 Rescue delivers a great mixture of power and finesse to help you craft shots from the tee box or fairway.

Cobra Aerojet Hybrid
Best Lightweight Hybrid for High Handicappers
- Loft: 17°-28°
- Shaft Length: 38.25”-40.75”
- Lie Angle: 57.5°-59.5°
- Swing Weight: D1, D0, C9
- The sleek, low profile offers a high launch
- Rounded, elongated sole provides impressive turf interaction

Cobra’s Aerojet hybrid offers several useful features, including a low, broad sweet spot that’s forgiving and powerful. A hybrid that works from the tee box or fairway, the Aerojet delivers a high launch with extended carry that maximizes distance.
As I played with the Aerojet, I noted the hybrid isn’t as powerful as the Paradym, but the Cobra club does offer more touch and sophistication from the fairway.
If you are struggling with distance, the Paradym ranks higher, but the Aerojet’s lightweight feel and high launch help you if you need more consistency.
The Aerojet represents an excellent option for high handicappers and beginners who want a reliable hybrid that produces a consistent shot shape they can depend upon on the golf course.
