Callaway Rogue ST Max Vs Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Irons
Today, we look at the differences between the new Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke irons and 2022’s Callaway Rogue ST Max irons.
Callaway Rogue ST Max Irons Overview
“The Rogue ST Max’s feature an AI-designed face, urethane microspheres for smoother feel, and 62g of tungsten weighting.”
The Rogue ST Max irons have a forgiving look both in the bag and behind the ball. They have a deeper face profile than the Paradym Ai Smoke irons and a deeper, more traditional cavity back.
And despite the super-strong loft (36.5° in the 9-iron) the low CG from the tungsten weights give these irons a lot of pop.
It was very easy to hold greens from distance with the mid and long irons. Currently, the Rogue ST Max’s retail for about $800
Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke Irons Overview
“The Paradym Smoke Ai irons feature an updated AI face, hollow-body design and a pre-worn leading edge.”
In terms of looks, the Ai Smoke irons have a thinner top line, thinner sole and a shallower face profile. The blades look a bit longer than the Rogue ST Max irons so you get a bit less vertical forgiveness.
But the hollow-body design in conjunction with the new face architecture made the Smoke Ai irons play 8.9 yards longer than the Rogue ST Max’s on average. The Ai Smoke irons retail for $1000.
“If you’re looking for pure distance, the Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke irons will work for you. If you need a bit more height and forgiveness, I recommend the Rogue ST Max irons.”
