Callaway Mavrik Vs Callaway Paradym Driver Comparison Overview
We get it. Golf clubs are ridiculously expensive. You can’t always afford to pay a premium for the latest and most expensive driver.
Luckily, you don’t always have to. There is a robust pre-owned driver market that can provide a lot of value if you are looking for an affordable game improvement driver.
However, there is something to be said about the latest and greatest in driver technology.
So today, we will be pitting old vs new as we compare and contrast the merits of the Callaway Mavrik driver and the new Callaway Paradym driver.
Callaway Mavrik Driver Overview
“The Mavrik was an advanced driver in its time.”
With a titanium body build and SS20 Flash Face design, this was the apex of driver technology just a couple of years ago.
And these features still have value today. Our testers mentioned that the Callaway Mavrik still plays hot and has a deep, satisfying feel when you nail the sweet spot.
The titanium body also gives the Mavrik a light and resilient feel. Many of our testers were exceeding their average club head speed with this driver in fact.
The shape of the driver head is also designed to be aerodynamic.
The only downside was that low-face shots lost a significant amount of ball speed – the same can be said of lateral mis-hits.
As long as you make consistent contact though, the Mavrik will reward you with a great feel and above average distance.
Callaway Paradym Driver Overview
“The Callaway Paradym replaces all titanium in the body with carbon fiber.”
In case you were wondering, carbon fiber is lighter than titanium and about as strong.
The Callaway Paradym feels lighter on the backswing which allowed more of our testers to resist flying open. As you can imagine, this increased striking accuracy.
The Callaway Paradym also features a 15-gram sliding weight (neutral, fade and draw positions) so it is a viable option no matter what your swing bias is.
And the biggie: our testers were driving the ball 11 yards longer than the Mavrik on average with this driver.
“In just a couple of years, Callaway has managed to drastically improve its driver design.
The Callaway Paradym is certainly more expensive than the Mavrik; but you really get what you pay for in this case. The Callaway Paradym does everything the Mavrik does – only better.”
