“The Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke hybrid brings the distance and offers a powerful feel at impact.”

Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Hybrid4

“I liked the forgiving look at address right away.”

But mostly, I loved the way this hybrid felt. After my very first swing I simply said, “whoah.” That’s because the face feels super reactive – another thing Callaway doesn’t really hype which I feel they should.

The face feels very powerful even when you miss the sweet spot and my launch monitor numbers confirmed the feel.

I was averaging a ball speed of 136.1 MPH with the 3H. Of course, some of that reduction in spin has to do with the forward weighting cartridge on the bottom of the sole.

Forward weighting almost  always mutes spin and that is certainly the case with the Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke hybrid.

Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Hybrid Selling Points

  • Low/forward weighting
  • Adjustable hosel
  • Slight draw bias
  • AI Smart Face design
  • Pronounced sole camber

“The Taylormade Qi10 Rescue offers straight flight and a solid feel at impact – even on mis-hits.”

Taylormade Qi10 Hybrid – First Impressions

Taylormade Qi10 Hybrid4

“After my very first swing with the Taylormade Qi10 Rescue, I was impressed with how powerful it felt.”

I’m not gonna sit here and tell you I understand all the ins and outs of the new 450SS face architecture, but whatever Taylormade has done, it makes for a really solid, satisfying feel at impact.

Even when I missed slightly to the left, I felt like I got the better of the ball. It probably also has to do with the split weighting as well.

I didn’t feel like the face was deflecting quite so much – even when I missed towards the heel or the toe.

Overall it gives a very powerful, satisfying feel that for the most part, translates to good distance. My average smash factor with the Taylormade Qi10 3-hybrid was 1.42 and my average carry was 227.3 yards.

The variable face thickness design generates fantastic ball speeds on both pure strikes and mis-hits. Including some chunks and slices, my average ball speed was still 141 MPH after my test session was finished.

And I liked the feel and launch I was getting when I was taking shots off the deck. The V-Steel sole helps pull your swing down so you get under the ball and cut through the turf nicely.

Off the deck, my average apex height was about 104 feet which was more than enough to hold greens.

Taylormade Qi10 Hybrid Selling Points

  • V-steel sole panel
  • Variable face thickness
  • Sock Fujikura Ventus shaft
  • Split mass weighting
  • Neutral ball flight
  • Solid feel at impact
  • Thru-Slot Speed Pocket
  • Carbon fiber crown

“At a glance, it’s easy to tell that Callaway doubled down on the forgiveness factor of the Big Bertha line with the Callaway Big Bertha BB23 hybrids.”

The footprint is surely the first thing that any player will notice about these hybrids. They certainly live up to the Big Bertha name by being beefy and confidence-inspiring behind the ball.

When we first started our test session, we were very impressed with how easily these clubs got the ball up in the air.

Titleist Tsi1 Hybrid

This is a hybrid specifically targetted at seniors and slower swing speeds with a lightweight configuration from the market leader, Titleist.

This one will suit the better players in the senior ranks and it produces more workability than other options on today’s list.

In 20 Words Or Less

Don’t be fooled by the deathly looks, it is incredibly easy to hit and built specifically for slower swing speeds.

Titleist TSi1 Hybrid Selling Points

  • Lightweight design promotes clubhead speed
  • Maximum distance and forgiveness
  • Traditional looking shape
  • Adjustable SureFit Hosel

Titleist Tsi1 Hybrid First Impressions

Our first impression of the Titleist TSi1 hybrid was it looked very simple, but boy did it pack a punch. There are no fancy bells and whistles, or colors and lines.

It sets up extremely well behind the ball, which gives you confidence right from the beginning.

It may be simple in looks, but it is definitely not simple in results. It was so easy to get the ball up in the air, even on poorly struck shots, it seemed like the ball still got up in the air and traveled a considerable distance.

We really loved the sound and feel of the TSi1, again similar to the looks, very simple, not too loud or too dull, not too hard or too soft.

When you first pick up the club, you can feel the light weight of it, and when swinging the club the speed you generate is astounding. This obviously equates to awesome distance.

It only has 4 loft options, similar products in other manufacturers have more, however the adjustable SureFit Hosel gives you the versatility that the other game improvements models don’t have.

The Titleist TSi1 Hybrid Family

As you would guess there is also a TSi3 model, you can read more about it in this article, so no need to dive into details here.

There is another model in this family, the TSi2 and as you would presume it falls right in between the TSi1 and TSi3 models.

The TSi2 is more of a forgiving model like the TSi1, this would suit a mid handicap golfer. It still has a low spin profile, but with its high launch properties it makes it easy to hit.

It has 3 loft options with the SureFit Hosel system. Titliest say it is for “Players with a sweeping delivery seeking a forgiving long iron replacement.”

Distance: 94/100

Feel & Control: 93/100

Callaway Rogue ST Hybrid Selling Points

  • AI Technology Jailbreak works really well
  • 24g of tungsten in precise locations to improve CG

Callaway Rogue ST Hybrid First Impressions

Callaway have really outdone themselves on this hybrid. Straight away we could feel the forgiveness and could see the ball visually going further than previous models.

It has 4 loft options, 3 – 6 Hybrid, unfortunately there is no loft sleeve, we felt this was a downside as playing around with the loft can really help you dial in your trajectory and distances.

We could feel the technology working, from miss hits to shots out of the middle, this club performed unbelievably on every shot. We were really impressed with the Jailbreak A.I. system, and the results showed.

This hybrid is very easy to launch, they have been able to place the CG in specific positions to help with launch, making it easier to get the ball into the air.

The Callaway Hybrid Family

The Rogue ST has 3 other models in the family; Rogue ST Max OS, Rogue ST Max OS Lite and Rogue ST Pro.

The Rogue ST Max and Rogue ST Max OS are your oversized options, mainly for your higher handicap player, they both have quite a bit of offset. Because of this they are draw biased. Something to consider if you struggle with a fade or slice.

Rogue ST Pro is for your better player, your more traditional looking Hybrid, it has a neutral shot shape and promotes a low launch and spin profile. Stay away from this model if you are a higher handicap player.

Distance: 96/100

Feel & Control: 93/100

Forgiveness: 93/100
