PlayBetter is super-excited to carry the full line!

Cobra AEROJET Golf Drivers

According to MyGolfSpy, "Cobra AEROJET LS ranks the best for distance. Multiple testers experienced eye opening results with this driver from a distance perspective."

But first, the overview. There are three models in the AEROJET drivers line: the standard, the LS, and the MAX.

The standard model AEROJET driver ($549.00) is designed for any golfer who is looking for fast, low head spin.

The Cobra AEROJET LS driver ($549.00) is the choice for golfers looking for low spin and low launch for maximum workability and control.

The AEROJET MAX driver ($549.00) features a draw-bias design that helps to reduce the tendency for the ball to slice, while also providing unrivaled stability and a low spin rate, resulting in ultimate distance on the course.

With these drivers, the emphasis is on aerodynamics to yeild a faster clubhead speed. Our go-to golf reviewer, Gabe from Let's Play Thru, tested all three out in his home golf simulator with the Bushnell Launch Pro.

He found that his clubhead speed was at the top of or over what he normally hits. The AEROJET MAX was the most forgiving. He found that the standard AEROJET driver had a solid impact feel, but that he had to make better contact with it. And with the LS, he found that carry distance was not quite as much and that the penalty for poor contact was higher.

In MyGolfSpy's 2023 Best Golf Driver testing, 35 testers tested 30 models. The Cobra AEROJET LS was #1 for Distance and Runner Up for Best Overall. Callaway Paradym drivers took #4 and #5 for Best Overall and Distance, respectively.

We highly recommend you check out Gabe's video above as he shows you several swings, the stats for each along with the averages, and discusses the aethetics and feel of these 2023 Cobra drivers!

Callaway Paradym Golf Drivers

Callaway is a formidable golf brand with a lot of customer loyalty. And the 2023 Paradym lineup is getting love from a lot of reviewers.

In MyGolfSpy's 2023 Best Drivers testing, the Paradym X was #4 for best overall and #5 for Distance. So, out of 35 models, both the Cobra and Callaway brands ranked well.

But let's get an overview of the Paradym drivers, which are for three different types of golfers.

The standard Pradym driver model ($599.99) features a refined shape with high MOI, and it's the only one with a 15 gram adjustable perimeter weighting. Promoting high launch, low spin, and neutral ball flight, it offers the best combination of distance, forgiveness, and adjustability.

The Paradym Triple Diamond Driver ($599.99) offers a compact shape for players who want to work the ball. It’s the lowest spinning and lowest launching driver of this series with a neutral ball flight.

The Paradym X Driver ($599.99) is engineered for a high launch with high MOI, along with a generously stretched profile at address. This model is best suited for golfers struggling with a slice—with its slight draw bias—and players seeking extreme forgiveness.

This series offers a lightweight design, and the standard and X models are ideal for high handicappers—although we like to recommend the more affordable, yet high quality Stix golf clubs to high handicappers.

Cobra AEROJET vs Callaway Paradym Golf Irons

Cobra AEROJET Golf Irons

The 2023 Cobra AEROJET irons are designed to be quite forgiving, quick off the face, and easy to launch and get in the air. These clubs are for players who not only want added forgiveness, but an iron that cranks out additional distance.

Let's look at the tech and then the two types.

First off, PWR-Bridge technology employs a 70g steel weight that is completely separated from the face, body, and sole of the iron. This positions the CG low to optimize launch and creates the needed space for the body structure to flex freely, resulting in more ball speed and added distance.

Then they added PWRSHELL H.O.T. Face technology for an even faster ball speed (Cobra tested these irons against its own LTDx irons and saw an increase of 10% more deflection resulting in upwards of 3.5 more yards per strike.)

The two models consist of the standard AEROJET and AEROJET ONE Length irons for $999.00 with Combo Sets for each model for $1,099.00.

Callaway Paradym Golf Irons

Callaway Paradym irons are designed to offer the best combination of feel and distance by pairing Callaway’s A.I. face technology with a forged 455 material.

Each iron face is uniquely optimized by parameters set by engineers base on A.I. The result delivers more ball speed and higher launch throughout the set.

The standard model ($1,399.99) here is for golfers who are looking for a players’ distance iron with a refined shape and premium forging.

The Paradym X ($1,399.99) is a bigger, beefier iron that combines incredibly long distance technologies with a premium forged feel.

Cobra AEROJET vs Callaway Paradym Golf Fairways

Cobra AEROJET Golf Fairways

Across the AEROJET line, the advanced aerodynamics package really lends itself to speed and distance. And it's no different with these Cobra fairway woods.

They're design also consists of the PWR-BRIDGE feature—a 13g weight structure that is suspended above the sole of the driver to not only precisely locate the center of gravity but to bring greater flex to the lower part of the face. Thanks to Cobra’s new PWRSHELL face insert which features A.I. powered H.O.T. (Highly Optimized Topology) variable face thickness—that flexibility is possible.

The AEROJET fairway clubs are similar to the drivers, just a bit smaller and also come in the same three types.

The standard AEROJET Fairway Wood ($329.00) was made to deliver versatile shot-making capabilities and exceptional forgiveness, making it easier for players to experience more consistency with their shots.

The AEROJET LS Golf Fairway ($329.00) is designed with a refined and slightly more compact clubhead shape that is tailored to help golfers achieve greater accuracy and precision in their shots.

The AEROJET MAX Fairway Wood ($329.00) provides tunable draw-bias and unrivaled stability to give golfers maximum confidence from the fairway or off the tee.

Callaway Paradym Golf Fairways

Following the Paradym driver models, the 2023 Callaway fairway woods continue keep the three typse.

The standard Callaway Paradym Golf Fairway Wood ($349.99) fits the widest range of players. It's the model for golfers who want a high launching fairway wood with a neutral ball flight.

The Paradym X Fairway ($349.99) is the most forgiving shape with a slight draw bias.

The Callaway Paradym Triple Diamond Fairway Wood ($349.99) offers the most compact fairway wood shape with a deeper face at address. Designed for more seasoned players who want to challenge themselves with lower flight and spin.

Cobra AEROJET vs Callaway Paradym Golf Hybrids

Cobra AEROJET Golf Hybrids

The 2023 AEROJET hybrids are essentially the mini versions of the AEROJET driver lineup, featuring PWRSHELL H.O.T. FACE and PWR-BRIDGE technology for added distance and improved performance through center of gravity refinement.

To help get the most face flex in a smaller package, Cobra's hybrids don’t come with an adjustable hosel but offer all the lofts necessary to help you nail the right combination for your irons.

The AEROJET hybrid standard model ($279.00) blends distance and high launch to provide more forgiveness on longer approach shots and adaptability across different lies.

The AEROJET ONE Length option ($279.00) allows you to utilize one repeatable setup and swing for increased confidence and consistency from every distance.

Callaway Paradym Golf Hybrids

Callaway has completely changed the shaping of these hybrids to offer greater versatility along with a more rounded wood-like shape.

The Paradym hybrid ($299.99) is for golfers who want a mid-sized, wood-shaped hybrid that’s long with excellent versatility and control. The Cutwave Sole design improves the club’s performance through the turf, making this a versatile hybrid, and it features Callaway's fairway wood technologies for maximum distance.

The Paradym X model hybrid ($299.99) is for golfers who want a full-sized, wood-shaped hybrid that’s long with excellent versatility and forgiveness.

Cobra AEROJET vs Callaway Paradym Conclusion

When it comes to these two new lineups from two of the top brands in golf clubs, there are no major downsides to either.

Both are getting great reviews, earning top spots in rankings.

But we are biased toward the new Cobra AEROJET lineup.

The combination of aerodynamics shaping, PWR-BRIDGE weighting and PWRSHELL with H.O.T. FACE technologies delivers new levels of speed and distance throughout the lineup. And, along with being just a bit more affordable, these are key ingredients for any golfer.
