But am I wrong? 


if the AI is the internal side of the face. Maybe I missed the memo on the etching being the AI this time around

Shaping on that triple diamond S is spot on.

💯% Very good looking from address.  Black and grey crown looks pretty clean too.  Not a huge fan of having anything on the crown, but I'm sure A.I Smoke would disappear after some play.

Going to need something lower than a 9* head. Prefer 8* head and turn down to 6* with a Tour loft sleeve.. digitally low lofted, open face would be awesome! @JohnnyDub... any insight into what can be done to help those of us that need to narrow that spin loft window?

When I tested the A.I Smoke 9* TD head up against my 9* Paradym TD I saw 300-400 rpm LESS spin.  To me, it was crazy low spin but could be $ for you.

Callaway certainly did not make a timeless looking Driver this go around.   It looks cheap.  Not a fan of whatever is going on with the sole color at all.  Distracting.  Certainly will test it against Para but unless it knocks my socks off I can’t carry this in the bag looking like that.   They have to offer customization of the head color once this launches

Well I'm excited about the S driver and triple HL fairway.  I'm assuming neither will be available to mere mortals correct?

I see nothing that says performance is going to be anything special. It appears all they basically did was slightly lower the rear weights yo slightly lower the CoG. May see a touch lower spin profile.

I agree, again, I have been a Callaway guy for quite a while, this is "cool", I have a fitting end of the month, I am getting the irons (probably MB/CB combo) which is the only thing I am looking forward to, I am sure he already has the driver, I will definitely give it a shot, but again, unless the performance it that much better, then I will consider it, I am having a lot of fun with my TD so I honestly don't think I'll be getting it, thank you for the reply.

Was it designed using artificial intelligence?

 

It only has 'AI' emblazened upon it in three places, so I'm unsure.

I have a stealth2+ I got in s September via warranty on my og stealth+ and I have a standard paradym that I got in November when callaway ran the 2x trade. I won't hit this year's drivers because I just can't see them doing a lot more than what I already have. And, equipment testing has reached the point of being tedious. 

 

Now, for folks in epic speed or mavrik, I think paradym and ai smoke are better overall.

I totally understand, I won (still have) an OG Stealth (standard) driver in a tournament, tested it against my TD, of course not apples to apples, lower launch and spin with the TD and higher spin and launch with the TM, that said, I changed a Callaway GoG to the TM in a different shaft and it was really impressive, I say that to say this, tech has improved so much that most drivers (with a fitting) should work about the same, i do agree that if a player has an older Callaway driver, as you stated, then they will probably benefit from the new AI stuff, again, it all depends on swing tendencies...thanks for the reply.
