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.
If you're interested in finding the best driver for you, why not check out our best golf drivers for 2023 for a comprehensive breakdown with all the information you need to make the most informed decision.
Moreover, you can read this article to find out how we test all of our equipment so you can trust the information we give you.
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."
You can watch that video here:
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.
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."
Alex said the sweet spot is still rather small.
Some great numbers for Titleist, he said, but not that low spinning.

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.
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.
