Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond vs Titleist TSR4 | "20 yards difference?!"

The search for a low-spinning chief has always been a quest for our Alex Lodge

He's always wanted one that spins around 2000-2200rpm. It's really difficult, because his golf swing is rubbish. 

Not my words, his. 

Throughout 2023, he's going on a search to find the best one he can put into the bag.

But back to the topic at hand and one of the drivers that made the 2023 list - the Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond, went head-to-head with the Titleist TSR4 for our latest YouTube video.

"A personal favourite of mine this comparison," Alex said. "Because of how ridiculous the results were."

Alex took both drivers down to Gray's Golf for his latest experiment. 

What to know...

TSR4 released last August which is truly a low-spinning club, Alex said. 

He added: 

"It is a low-spinning beast of a driver in the Titleist speed project. Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond is new for 2023 in the Paradym family. Again, it's a low-spinning beast and although they have some differences to each other; we've got the Callaway with the 360 degree forged carbon chassis [and] Titleist [has] a bit more forgiveness with that face, there are a lot of similarities." 


As Alex rightly points out, looks are subjective. But it's clear he prefers the sleek, clean design of the Titleist TSR4. 

He said: "The Paradym looks a little bit more modern and you can see that 360 degree carbon chassis wrapping around." 


Titleist TSR4

Alex said: 

"I found that the TSR4 was actually very forgiving for a driver that will be linked to low spin. Although I hit some bad shots with it - trust me I did - I felt like the dispersion was really good and the numbers were pretty stable. It wasn't the fastest in the world, that will be saved for another video, but I felt like it was actually very forgiving and it feels solid."

Alex said the sweet spot is still rather small. 

Some great numbers for Titleist, he said, but not that low spinning. 

Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond

Alex said: 

"This is where this video gets pretty ridiculous. This driver, with the same shaft of the Fujikura Ventus Black 7x TR which is an absolute beast. 
"This driver does not spin. This driver absolutely does not spin at all. I've hit many, many drivers in the last two or three years [and] the Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond for 120mph clubhead speed I have never seen a driver spin as low as this consistently across the face." 

The problem?

Alex said although it feels great, he doesn't believe it's that forgiving. It's mainly on the toe strike, as the spin drops significantly, which is hugely detrimental to your game. 

On some toe strikes, Alex got around 900-1100rpm, which is just too low. 

He added: 

"So there are some pros and cons here. The Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond is an absolute low-spinning monster but and I didn't think I would ever say this, it might be too low-spinning across the face for me."  

Of course, you can change the shaft to amend this. But for the purposes of this experiment, it was important to use the same set-up. 

The results:


Alex said: 

"The Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond 100 per cent is the one to go for. I'm very impressed with the numbers that I've seen from the Paradym Triple Diamond. I don't think I've ever seen that from a driver before in terms of spin rate."
