Ping G430 Vs Callaway Paradym Hybrid Comparison
It’s low spin versus high launch in today’s comparison of the Ping G430 and Callaway Paradym hybrids.
Ping G430 Hybrid Overview
“The Ping G430 hybrid is available in 17, 19, 22, 26, 30 and 34 degree versions.”
The Ping G430 has a tungsten weight placed low and in the back of the head, resulting in easy launch.
The facewrap design expands the sweet spot so it’s especially helpful if you lack striking consistency.
But the high launch of the Ping G430 hybrid actually reduced my normal carry by about 4 yards.
Callaway Paradym Hybrid Overview
“The Paradym hybrid is available in 18, 21, 24 and 27 degree loft versions.”
I much preferred the lower-spinning, lower-launching Paradym hybrid.
It was more congenial with my semi-aggressive tempo and 90+ MPH swing speed. It has a head shape more akin to a fairway wood which I like.
The Paradym wasn’t as forgiving on mis-hits as the Ping G430; but it played longer for me.
“If you get most of your distance by keeping the ball low, you’ll like the Callaway Paradym hybrid. But if you tend to use the entirety of the face, the Ping G430 hybrid is the better option.”
