Really cool videos. From all the reviews I have seen so far, it looks like Callaway may be driver of the year.

Certainly has the most hype or buzz around it compared to any other that came out this year. Last year was for sure TM and the carbon face and now Callawy with carbon body. 

I am looking forward to seeing these in person.

I’m super happy with my G430 lst but gotta be honest, the deeeep face of the Paradym 💎💎💎 has me slightly intrigued lol. Plus getting an 8* and the green dot -2* adapter to get to 5.5* is so enticing.  
 

Nope nope nope I’m happy gosh darn it. Get out of my head Paradym!

can anyone confirm if the Vents TR Blue 60g is a stock option in Europe/UK? its on their website but seems too good a shaft to be stock?

From my understanding in reading on multiple places on the interwebz, yes the Ventus TR is stock only in the Blue.   Doesn't seem to make sense to me but seems to have been confirmed by multiple people.

Actually let me backtrack on this. 

I don't know why I didn't think of this ealier.  But I just went to our Callaway Dealer website and went under stock option and the Ventus Blue actually is a $200 cost upgrade.    

So I don't know where others saw that info, but it doesn't appear to be a no charge upgrade.

It appears as a stock option for the triple Diamond but is a $250 cost for the TR Blue 6 on callaways website when preordering.

Ah. I didn’t look at the TD head. I’ll do they tomorrow 

I guess I just inadvertently gave you all some info for negotiating a price with your shop when you go to buy 🫣

Pretty much impossible.  I believe the max MOi for a driver is 5900. 
 

9000 sound like a mallet putter MOI

Typically the PING G drivers like 425 or 430 rank near the max of 5900.  
 

I haven’t seen any numbers on the Paradym.  But my guess, pure guess would be somewhere in the middle like low 5000’s along with TSR2

The maximum total MOI(horizontal + vertical) is 10,000. The Ping G425 has just under 10,000 MOI. The Paradym Core has a total MOI of 9000. Most use the horizontal MOI which the maximum is 5900. The Ping G425 has a horizontal MOI of 5600. Some other horizontal MOI of other drivers are: Callaway Rogue ST Max 5300, Tour Edge Exotics E722 5500, Titleist TSi2 5300, Cobra LTDx 5200. Callaway has not revealed the horizontal MOI of the Paradym. Titleist stated that the MOI of the TSR2 is lower than the TSi2 at around 4900.

Great post and info! 

Thanks for the clarification.  Clearly I am one who is only aware of the horizontal MOI 😬

Some other driver horizontal MOI #'s that I've found: Mizuno ST-Z/ST-X220 5000, Tour Edge Exotics C722 4900(wt. back)/4400(wt. front), Cobra LTDx LS 4200, Ping G425 LST 5000, Callaway Epic Max 5200. So given that the last 2 Callaway max drivers were 5200/5300, I'm guessing that the new Paradym core is around 5300-5400.
