Callaway has been making competitive fairway woods and drivers for a long time, providing competitive distance and reliable shots off the tee and the fairway. With their Ai Smoke series of fairway woods, they bring four different models that are meant to serve golfers of just about every style and experience level.
In this Callaway Ai Smoke Woods review, we are going to cover:
Let’s dive into each and figure out what these fairway woods have to offer.
The key feature of the Callaway Paradym Ai Smoke fairway woods is the use of their Swing Code technology to create the Ai Smart Face. Swing Code essentially refers to them using AI simulations of real golfers’ swings to craft clubs that suit every type of golfer. They aggregated their data and divided the swing profiles into four distinct categories, creating a model for each one. Let’s dive into the model comparison to see what they came up with.
|Ai Smoke MAX
|Ai Smoke MAX D
|Ai Smoke MAX FAST
|Ai Smoke Triple Diamond
|Distance and Adjustability
|Distance and Forgiveness
|Lightweight Swing Speed
|Distance and Workability
|Golfers with semi-consistent shot patterns
|Golfers with a less consistent shot pattern
|Golfers with a less consistent shot pattern and slower swing speed
|Golfers with a consistent shot pattern
The Ai Smoke Max is made for mid-handicap golfers with fairly consistent contact on their wood shots. It comes with a low ball spin profile, but still high launching to ensure that golfers can consistently get the ball in the air. It also comes with an adjustable draw/fade bias to meet the needs of golfers spending on the shot shape they want or to adapt with them as they improve.
The MAX D is made for less experienced golfers struggling with consistent contact or a bad slice. It is the most forgiving model in the lineup, with the highest launch and spin profile to ensure the ball gets into the air even on off-center strikes. It comes stock with a draw bias to correct slices as well.
The MAX FAST is designed for golfers struggling with contact and swing speed. It shares the launch, spin profile, and draw bias with the MAX D but is also designed in a lightweight package to improve clubhead speed for more distance.
The Triple Diamond is designed for high-level golfers with consistent shot patterns with their woods. It has a lower, more penetrating launch profile and the lowest ball spin of the lineup. It comes stock with a very slight, almost neutral, fade bias. It is also engineered to be more compact and stiffer to improve workability for golfers that want more shot shapability.
While there is an Ai Smoke Model for every golfer, there are still pros and cons to consider before buying any of them:
Overall, the new Callaway Ai Smoke woods bring something to the table for everyone, and all of the clubs feel quality and hit well. Their few cons are easy to get past, and some may even like the new unique smoke-inspired aesthetics on the sole.

I’ve been at Worldwide Golf Shops for 6 years, and I’ve been playing golf for 23 years. I have played a few mini tour events but now compete occasionally at the amateur level– currently a +2.1 handicap. I am a bit of a tinkerer when it comes to golf and golf clubs. I enjoy testing all aspects of different products, utilizing various fitting systems and learning about all the different club shafts, club lengths, golf balls, and putter styles. Not just for my game, but to help customers of all calibers.
