Cobra Aerojet Vs Callaway Paradym Fairway Wood Comparison Overview

The new year invariably brings new golf club lines.

Callaway has introduced the world to the Paradym clubs and Cobra to the Aerojet clubs. Today we will be looking at the fairway wood offerings from each new line.

The Callaway Paradyme and Cobra Aerojet fairway woods are both game improvement clubs; but they would likely benefit a wide range of players. Let’s take a look at the performance aspects of both woods.

Cobra Aerojet Fairway Wood Overview

“The Cobra Aerojet fairway wood features a carbon fiber crown, adjustable loft sleeve and a floating weight in the back of the head.”

The weight and carbon fiber crown work together to pull the CG nice and low. The adjustable loft sleeve allows you to tweak the loft 1.5° higher or lower. Then there is the PWRSHELL face which is essentially a variable thickness face.

What you end up with is a moderately forgiving fairway wood that allows for a bit of shot shaping off the deck. Spin is kept pretty low which is not a surprise with Cobra. The launch was a little on the low side as well.

There is also a fixed rear weight to promote forgiveness through increased MOI. The Cobra Aerojet has a solid feel and offers tight shot dispersion. Our testers also noted that it was deadly accurate. However, they complained that it felt a bit chunky and that the overall turf interaction was poor.

Callaway Paradym Fairway Wood Overview

“The Callaway Paradym combines premium features to create a really nice distance wood.”

In the Paradym, you have a forged carbon sole coupled with a really nice C300 maraging steel face. There is also a 23 gram tungsten weight positioned forward in the head. To put it simply, the Callaway Paradyme fairway wood plays longer than the Cobra Aerojet.

Our testers were averaging a distance of 228.2 yards after three swings with the Callaway Paradym. Even mis-hits were flying far with very little deviation. The head is supported by a widened internal Jailbreak brace to keep MOI high.

“While we can see how the Cobra Aerojet fairway woods would work for high handicappers who have trouble making consistent contact, the Callaway Paradym fairway wood is the better overall club. The Paradym plays longer and offers forgiveness that is at least comparable to that of the Cobra Aerojet.”

“The Callaway Paradym Fairway Woods will increase your ball speed and carry distance by neutralizing spin and increasing accuracy.”


Cobra Aerojet Fairway Wood – First Impressions

“There is nothing about the design of the Cobra Aerojet Fairway woods that really blew us away.”

It has a clean look behind the ball, which is certainly a good thing. But even on paper, there isn’t enough that’s new about the Cobra Aerojet Fairway woods compared to their past woods that really got the blood pumping for us.

Still, it is surprisingly workable and is a good fairway wood for attacking the pin on long par 4’s and 5’s.

“If you’re looking for the most forgiveness, the Cobra Aerojet Max is a good choice.”

Better players will naturally gravitate to the exceptionally low-spinning Cobra Aerojet LS fairway woods. The LS version also launches low so players with faster swing speeds will definitely find it to be the best distance wood of the three new versions.

“With just one glance, you can tell that this was a fairway wood built to modern specifications.”

What we mean is that they bear more of a resemblance to modern hybrid clubs than any other Callaway wood we have seen before.

They were certainly built with mid and high handicappers in mind – although the Triple Diamond version definitely has something to offer lower handicap players.

Upon swinging the Callaway Paradym Fairway Woods, we were impressed with the lowered spin and moderate increase in carry distance for most of our testers.

“The standard Callaway Paradym Fairway Woods are great for mid and high handicappers.”

The Paradym X fairway woods have a slight draw bias so they would be the best choice for players struggling to fix a slice.

The Triple Diamond Paradym fairway woods have the most classic-looking profile and the deepest faces.

This is the best choice if you are able to work the ball and want to attack long approaches more aggressively.

Who is the Cobra Aerojet Fairway Wood for?

“At the end of the day, mid handicappers would probably get the best use out of this fairway wood.”

At least, that was the case for our testers. Our high handicap testers really liked the forgiveness of these fairway woods; but they weren’t able to work them as masterfully as some of our better testers. The good thing about the Cobra Aerojet Fairway woods is that they yield consistent distance almost regardless of your swing speed.

Again though, mid handicappers will love the controllable spin and launch of these woods.

Who are the Callaway Paradym Fairway Woods for?

Callaway Paradym Fairway Wood3

“Luckily, there is a Callaway Paradym Fairway Wood for every type of player – except maybe scratch players.”

The Triple Diamond Callaway Paradym Fairway Woods are great for low handicappers and the distance they produce is market-leading, they are considerably longer than the stealth 2 fairway wood.

Other than that, the Callaway Paradym Fairway Woods and the Paradym X fairway woods are great for mid to high handicappers who still get most of their distance from higher launch angles.

The Callaway Paradym Fairway Woods and the Paradym X fairway woods are also very forgiving on toe and heel misses.

The C300 maraging steel faces give plenty of feedback too – you know exactly when you mis-hit with any of these woods.
